ALAN WATTS & SPOOKY PEOPLE

Watts

Englishman Alan Watts (1915 – 1973), a fan of Eastern religions, wrote books about religion and philosophy.

Watts had a "far-reaching influence on the American intelligentsia." (Alan Watts - Wikipedia)

As a child, while ill with a fever, Watts claimed to have had a mystical vision.

While living in London, Watts got to know theosophists like Alice Bailey, some of whom believed that the 'divine' can be found in everyone.

The theosophists are a mixed bunch and their ideas are controversial. (How religions are invented)

Alice Bailey wrote of the Jews as a race, with group karma, characteristics, and behaviors.

She believed Jews embody the characteristics of "materialism, cruelty and a spiritual conservatism" and the "separative, selfish, lower concrete mind."
[124][125]

Bailey said that "The Jews, by their illegal and terrorist activities, have laid a foundation of great difficulty for those who are seeking to promote world peace."[147])

Bailey stated that all religions originate from the same spiritual source, and that humanity will eventually come to realize this, and as they do so, the result will be the emergence of a universal world religion and a "new world order." [151][152]

Krishnamurti and a top Theosophist Charles Leadbeater. "It came to light that Leadbeater had been teaching his boys masturbation, and had been encouraging them to practise it regularly... Leadbeater had in the past repeatedly stated the importance of sexual purity." There is much evidence that leadbeater frequently shared beds with his pupils. (Krishnamurti, Leadbeater, Wedgwood )

In the 1930s, Alan Watts took an interest in Zen Buddhism.

In 1938, he got married to Eleanor Everett.

Watts entered an Anglican/Episcopalian Theological Seminary, in Illinois, USA. (Alan Watts - Wikipedia)

There he attempted to work out a blend mystical Christianity and Asian philosophy.

In 1945, Watts became an Anglican/Episcopalian priest.

He then had an extramarital affair.

Watts's marriage was ended and Watts ceased to be a priest.

Watts developed a strong interest in Hinduism and Quantum Physics.

Watts began to dabble in mescaline given to him by Dr. Oscar Janiger, a University of California Irvine Psychiatrist who was best known for his LSD research. (Alan Watts - Wikipedia)

Watts tried LSD several times.

"Many of the seminal figures of the counterculture were first introduced to LSD ... by scientists and physicians who were conducting CIA-funded research and attending conferences funded by CIA-front foundations.

"I met the Menlo Park researcher who gave Ken Kesey his first dose of acid and the Los Angeles psychiatrists who gave the drug to Henry and Claire Booth Luce, Anais Nin, Alan Watts, Cary Grant, and a host of other luminaries.

"All were part of the CIA-enabled network." (LSD, the CIA, and the rise of the counterculture.)



Watts became more influenced by Hinduism.

He wrote about how 'opposites' such as 'good' and 'bad' are essentials of human life and human evolution.

Watts claimed that the universe consists of a 'self' which becomes all the things, living and non living, in the cosmos.

In other words, Watts, inspired by Hindu ideas, wrote that God plays all the parts in the drama of life.

God plays the part of Hitler and the part of Mother Teresa.

We personally find it difficult to believe that 'God' plays the part of Hitler, at the point at which Hitler is planning genocide.

Now, of course, the CIA, and certain Hindu fascists, might like us to believe that God played the parts of the shooters in the Mumbai Attacks of 2008.

Alan Watts was married three times. (Alan Watts - Wikipedia)

"Laden with social and financial responsibilities, he struggled increasingly with alcohol addiction."

He died at the age of 58.

I read numerous books by Watts, Bailey and others in the early 70's. Still have them up in the attic. Never was a follower of these "beliefs" but an observer of what was being introduced to the zeitgeist of the times. It took us a while to figure out that in many cases we were being had and by whom.

Somewhere during that time the CIA decided that was enough of the clinical quality LSD (perhaps too mind opening?) and began to lower the quality, adulterate and contaminate the supply for the masses. The psychedelic era ended as it started, through manipulation.

WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange on Iraq War Logs, "Tabloid Journalism" and Why WikiLeaks Is "Under Siege"

http://www.democracynow.org/2010/10/26/wikileaks_founder_julian_assange_on_iraq

This was on today's 10/26 "Democracy Now" interview with Amy Goodman and I think the correct Youtube link is below:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KyiF3t-2Zek

Notice how clean-cut Julio now looks? A nice haircut and sporting a new suit???

Plus, his platinum-dyed blonde hair seems to be fading back to its brunette/dishwater blonde looks????

Julio, how can it be that Sibel Edmonds gets a 'State Secret Gag Order' slapped on her, with the threat of prison w/o bail and you go anywhere you want, claiming to be chased by the FBI/CIA?

If Amy Goodman can find you, so could the FBI... if they wanted to.

And why did you break this story at the same time all the juicy details were coming out about those 'Too Big to Fail' Wall Street banks engaging in massive foreclosure fraud?

Just a coincidence, right?

As far as 'god' creating Hitler and MT, who not?

If there is a god and he/she/it created eveything, then he/she/it created good and evil, but what do I know, I'm just a navel-gazing moron:)

Haven't smoked pot or imbibed any hallucinogens, so the video didn't make all that much sense...

You don't go from Zen to Anglican/Episcopalian. It should be the other way around. That is, if your not full of shit, of course.

Of course "God" doesn't plan genocides. God only plans and carries out nuclear holocausts ( raging fire storms and instantaneous atomic dematerializations) against those who do to prevent them from spreading their evil. God's containment campaign against evil are his megatons of love. Pray for progress.
