Spiritual solutions to global disasters
How often have you felt a sense of helplessness when news of a global disaster reaches you? An inner despair that hundreds or possibly thousands of people could suffer death, disability or homelessness and there’s nothing we can do to prevent it? There would be something wrong with us if we never felt like this. Disillusionment with politicians has never been higher, and the unfair materialistic scheme becomes ever more unfair.
Unsung heroes dedicate themselves in unforgiving and treacherous regions to the physical welfare of those caught up in such catastrophes, giving medical aid and other essential support. They are surely more often deserving of the plaudits routinely handed out to those in the political and business communities, as well as the sporting and celebrity circuits. But in so many areas they fight an uphill battle with limited resources, and all the while natural disasters and global insecurities continue or even increase.
Spirituality is rarely seen as a solution to such tragedies. Some religious organisations do considerable good through their prayer and relief efforts, while others confine themselves more to the personal domain – relationships, self-fulfilment and contentment – instead of providing a mechanism to help the victims of hurricanes, earthquakes, flooding and war.
The world reached new levels of danger in the second half of the 20th century. Nuclear weaponry, pollution and overpopulation, to name just three, have created a “perfect storm” of calamity and predicted doom. Into this maelstrom stepped western master of yoga, Dr. George King, who founded The Aetherius Society in 1955. Unlike generations of yogis before him who mastered and taught the meditative path of self-realisation, his focus was on service, service and even more service to the world as a whole.
He offered spirituality as the solution to humanitarian dilemmas and identified the spiritual energy crisis as being at the very root of our problems. If we solved this, he said, the physical energy crisis would also be solved. Simply put, we need to send out as much spiritual energy as we possibly can, using every method at our disposal. Unlike material resources, this commodity is unlimited in its abundance providing only that we use it. It can inspire world leaders and negotiators for peace and freedom; uplift and energize relief workers and medical staff in afflicted areas; heal the victims of natural and man-made disasters; and empower the forces of nature to bring stability to dangerous climate conditions.
Dr. King devised unprecedented ways of sending enormous quantities of spiritual energy to the world, and he did so through his close cooperation with advanced intelligences from other planets. He devised physical apparatus which could be used by these beings to transmit uplifting, healing power at times of crisis. He also devised equipment to store the prayer output of hundreds of people around the world so that this too could be used at a later time of dire need.
Of course these are controversial claims which will understandably be questioned, but it would be foolish to dismiss them out of hand. A discovery may be unpalatable to the establishment of the day, as Galileo for one experienced, but that doesn’t make it untrue. This ground-breaking spiritual concept has been actively and effectively deployed by The Aetherius Society both in Dr. King’s lifetime and for the twenty years since his demise.
The last couple of weeks has seen exceptional turbulence in our world with many dangers still existing as this blog post is written. The Aetherius Society has been actively releasing large amounts of spiritual energy which would be the equivalent of thousands of people praying intensively for many hours, a force which could otherwise be described as pure love. Apparatus based in London and Barnsley in the UK, Los Angeles and Michigan in the USA, and Auckland in New Zealand have targeted some of the situations we are currently facing.
One such example is the recent Hurricane Irma. An article in the New York Times on September 11th with the headline “The Monster Surge That Wasn’t: Why Irma Caused Less Flooding Than Expected” indicates a possible result of these releases. The writer suggests that it was a “bit of good fortune” and “the product of some meteorological luck” that Irma unexpectedly veered inland before it reached Naples, thereby pulling water away from the shoreline instead of shoving six to nine feet of it into Fort Myers, Naples, Tampa Bay and St Petersburg. Although it was a tragic disaster it could, according to this piece, have been far worse.
Another natural disaster, which was targeted, was the recent earthquake off the Mexican coast. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre had predicted waves three metres in height, but thankfully they only reached a third of that.
Another targeted area was Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, where a desperate conflict still rages between the Buddhist government and the Rohingya Muslims. Such suffering could easily put people off religion for good, but spirituality is a stronger force than any religious organisation, especially one which has been corrupted for political purposes. Following a radiation of prayer power there have been at least some positive developments: United Nations aid was announced; Bangladesh agreed to build a new camp for 250,000 refugees and influential figures spoke out including the Dalai Lama. As of writing much more spiritual help is needed for this area.
A major focus has been the tenuous crisis in the Korean Peninsula, which potentially could have catastrophic global consequences. Some dismiss this as nothing more than bluster between political leaders, but other experienced commentators are not so confident. One thing for sure is that an outpouring of love energy can only help to bring stability to that knife-edge situation.
Just as with giving spiritual healing to an individual, the outcome is not just down to the amount of energy transmitted by the healer, but the karma of the patient is also a key factor. The same applies to global situations where the karma of those involved can determine how much of the energy is used and what effect it has. All we can do is send it out as and when it is needed.
This applies to individuals as well. You can make a massive difference by sending prayer energy to these and other regions. By doing so you can help to create more positive karma. Of course you don’t have to be in The Aetherius Society or even believe in it to send prayer, mantra and healing to situations like this. You might never know what good you have done, so please don’t underestimate your efforts.
Miracles are not performed by God for man, but by man for God.
