Ironically, many of the strongest supporters of this form of atheism are actually involved in supposedly uncovering truth in society and life. Yet in fanatically opposing spirituality they become unknowing agents of the very system they are trying to uncover – with many of them being just as fanatical in their witch hunt as the most avid religious believer. A certain kind of watery “spirituality” is allowed in this mindset, one that doesn’t dig too deep and doesn’t shake off the shackles in perception that blind humanity to seeing reality; society doesn’t want us to see, it wants us to conform.

It’s within everyone’s ability to wake up, empower themselves, and take the shackles off. In practicing astral projection, it’s possible when suitably prepared, to go out of your body and there discover entities of darkness working in an organized hierarchy, in a war against us, countered by beings of light; this struggle continues at every moment.
Practitioners of dark knowledge
Well hidden are practitioners of dark esoteric knowledge, who are influencing society. They are not just a group of people with a set of beliefs or just rituals, as people tend to believe modern day Satanism operates. These are adepts of dark knowledge who travel out of their bodies to converse with those who have awakened in evil in the underworld, and they influence religion. This is the root of the darkness affecting the world: it’s not simply a matter of following the money, but following the spiritual/religious influence to that underworld.
At most levels of society, and in most power structures, there are religious influences that can be positive or awful. Some societies are based around religions, but there’s a distinction to be made between religious teachings and sinister infiltrators. The most powerful of these have adherents that go out of their bodies to the underworld as disciples of darkness.
It helps to understand esoteric symbolism
Many esoteric symbols in use today have their origins in ancient times, but people are often confused about the meanings of ancient esoteric symbols and teachings as most don’t have the appropriate kind of esoteric experience to actually know what they are symbolic of. This has given rise to a persecution of esoteric knowledge as many believe it to be evil and essentially the same as Satanism, but this is false as there is a difference between white and dark knowledge – they are opposites.
There has also been some misunderstanding about ancient knowledge in which spiritual symbols are attributed to material values, when they actually refer to esoteric ones.
Prevalent ideas of this kind have given rise to the ideas that a hybrid human/extraterrestrial race was created to mine gold and its descendants have been governing society since the times of ancient Sumer. But that’s a likely misinterpretation of what is pretty standard esoteric symbolism. There is an interesting study of Sumerian texts by A.R. George that’s available for free download: The Babylonian Gilgamesh Epic: Introduction, Critical Edition and Cuneiform Texts and they are normal spiritual texts for their day. Another common misinterpretation is that the Archons (a term used in Gnostic texts such as the Nag Hammadi Library) were evil, but Archon means ruler, and in Gnosticism Archons are both good and bad.
It’s easy to draw conclusions about the symbolism of the past, but to understand it’s nature requires going through essentially the same spiritual processes ancient peoples went through, and doing this reveals that the symbolism of the past is as alive today as it was then, since it’s a universal language of higher dimensions. The spiritual teachings of ancient peoples are most often accounts of their spiritual experiences out of the body and their representation of the process of enlightenment.
Because the process of enlightenment is real, cultures from around the world have conveyed it according to their time and circumstances, which is one of the main reasons why the same symbols appear around the world in apparently unrelated cultures. This is not to rule out times of shared worldwide communication or extraterrestrial influence, but it’s important to know the esoteric to be able to separate it’s message from other information of the past.
