Ezra, this is a great video, but as a Jew you are hiding the main fact. Merkel is NOT a misguided gentile German liberal, despite her blue eyes and her peroxide-blond hair. (Look at old photos; she is not blonde, but mousy ash-brown.)

She is a militant Jewish communist. She was very active in the hierarchy of the communist “Free German Youth” movement as a teen. She was an “inofficial collaborator” (informant) with the code name “Erika” for the German secret police, the Stasi. Her father’s last name was KASNER, which (look it up for other examples — rabbis and bar mitsvah boys — see below) is a clearly, totally Jewish name, just as Jewish as Rosner, Kostner, or Shatner (the Star Trek guy), and other names ending in -ner, and as Ashkenazi-Jewish as Goldberg or Horowitz.

Germany now has a crypto-Jewess as chancellor! Angela Merkel’s maiden name is Kasner, an openly Jewish name! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angela_Merkel Her father Horst was a supposed Lutheran minister who moved from West Germany in 1950 into communist East Germany!

It first stunned me years ago when I read that Angela’s father, supposedly a Protestant minister, moved INTO East Germany, which others were escaping OUT of at the risk of their very lives (and I saw the Berlin Wall, which went up later, and white crosses on the riverbank of Germans shot dead while trying to swim across the Spree River (pronounced “shpray”) in Berlin and get out of East Germany).

Very moving German news report (with English subtitles) with film footage of East Germans swimming across the Spree River in downtown Berlin as an East German military speedboat (with rifles, machine guns and pistols on board) rushes toward them! Troops got promotions and bonuses for shooting escapees dead, and being young souls, of course they did it. After all, if they got fired, 1) they would be broke, 2) their young-soul wife would leave them,  and then 3) they would not get any more pussy. Case closed! 😉

In 1975 I was in East Berlin, which was still miserable, joyless and poor even then, 30 years after the war. I still saw bullet holes from the war in the buildings, long lines waiting for a taxi, Russian solyanka soup on the menu (a sausage in hot water), and disgusting artificial honey from Cuba made from sugar in the grocery stores, and I saw just one rotten old radish in six otherwise empty vegetable bins!

Berlin Wall, leading right to the famous Brandenburg Gate on both sides. All of East Germany, 17 million people, was one giant prison. There was also a wall between East and West Germany — to keep East Germans IN.

berlin-wall-brandenburg-gate

It divided villages, such as this one in Mödlareuth, half in Bavaria, half in Thuringia. East German border troops got promotions and raises, as I said a bit above, for shooting and killing escapees, and were constantly rotated individually to other towers so as to not form any friendships with the other guard — and then agree to say together “We did not see anyone going over the wall, colonel.”

For a while the Wall even had ingenious little mini-machine guns mounted on it, Selbstschussanlagen, that would fire off a burst of bullets along the wall if a sound detector (the cone) heard it.

Mines, dogs, machine guns, watchtowers and patrols. This is what Angela’s father liked –he moved with her into a goy country that was one big prison camp.

1975, when I myself visited East Berlin, was long after Stalin died, who was the worst of the worst of the marxist dictators, but Angela’s father loved him.

Stalin_Secretary_general_ussr_1942

Angela Kasner’s father, Herr Horst Kasner, moved INTO this nightmarish communist country of East Germany with his wife when the ultimate monster, Joseph Stalin, was still alive and running both East Germany and the USSR with a bloody, iron fist, having already killed 30 million Russians and others in the gulag.

Dozens of millions of anti-communist prisoners, or just Stalin critics, were starved and worked to death in Siberia by the psychopathic dictator, forced by his Jews to dig pointless canals in frozen earth with pickaxes, or mine for gold and uranium at 40 below zero. If you did not fulfill your work quota, they cut your food rations even lower — and then you were too weak to fullfil the quote the next day, so then they cut it even more. In a week you were dead. Eight of the eleven death camps in the gulag were run by Jews. But Herr Kasner moved INTO this bolshevik system — Because Merkel’s father was a JEW too.

I (and a friend, Roy Armstrong), translated a 55-page article for The Barnes Review on the horrors of life and death for Russians under the bolsheviks Jews.

It was so nauseating it took me nine months to finish translating it. I had to take a week off sometimes to recuperate psychologically. it was forty years of shere fear, pain, death and hell, 1917-57, and the Jews kept coming up with new, cruel ways to do it.

But the goyim deserve it by being stupid, selfish and cowardly.

Yes, this fiend Stalin was alive when Kasner and family moved in, still dominating the Eastern Block that he had enslaved by the brute force of the Red Army, and his Soviet troops were still occupying East Germany and its puppet government.

The Red Army went on an orgy of rape and murder when they conquered Berlin.

Three years after Herr Kasner moved to the “worker-and-farmer state,” East German workers rose up, in June of 1953, against their communist overlords, and were horribly gunned down.

“Free Elections” is the demand of workers (the same workers whommarxism supposedly so cherishes), risking their lives to protest horrible conditions of fear and poverty under Stalin and his East German puppet, Walter Ulbricht. In the end, the US did nothing, of course, and hundreds were shot and thousands arrested and imprisoned.

What shocked me now recently was when Merkel publicly called protesters against the refugees, who are 72% young muslim men, these so-called “refugees” — when she called regular German people who were really, truly not “neo-Nazis” at all, just absolutely ordinary housewives and local people who are terrified of muslim rapists and muggers, by the contemptuous German epithet “das Pack”, which in German is a horrible word, meaning “scum of the earth”, “human garbage,” “lowlifes” or “white trash.”

Ordinary Germans have begun throwing bottles and rocks and screaming furious slogans of anger and rage as hundreds of thousands of black and brown muslim young men pour in.

The mudlims are being brought in to rise up one day to rape and and slaughter the German people! They will be allowed to storm and seize armories of the German army and police and take out the assault rifles, grenades and other infantry weapons in them, and then go on a rampage!

I cannot find the words to express my feelings at seeing this mudlim scum hoisting the ISIS flag as German police stand there, ordered to do nothing but defend THEMSELVES.

Estrogen-ruled, liberal white women are the vanguard of welcoming their mudlim future rapists, which raises the issue of why, before 1920, almost no major white nation gave women the vote at all. Being considered ruled by feelings and not logic, women only got it in France in 1945 .

Why did Angela Kasner say this “das Pack” insult– especially as a politician — about typical, ordinary voters who are not sieg-heiling or worshipping Hitler, but just have grave concerns FOR THEIR SAFETY??

Because she does not self-identify at all ethnically as being a German, but instead, in her heart of hearts, as a JEWESS, which she is.

She is loyal to her Jewish peopleand the vengeful goal of its leadership — the total dying-out of the German people by old age and death,  interbreeding with muslims, and mass-murder.

This goal was expressed recently by the openly Jewish leftist politician Gregor Gysi, before that by the Jewish-leftist politician Joschka Fischer, and long ago it was overtly and bluntly stated by Theodore Kaufman, who wrote the 1941 US bestseller in English: “Germany Must Perish” (long before Pearl Harbor, or even before any claimed “Holocaust”!), advocating that Germany itself be divided up among neighboring nations, all German men sterilized, and all young German women be married off to men of other nationalities.

This Kaufmann Plan sought the total eradication forever of the German people.

Angela Kasner (whose previous husband had the last name of Merkel, whence her current last name), is thus neither a German liberal nor a German traitor, seen correctly and fairly, but an excellent Jewish agent, carrying out the orders of her Jewish top leaders.

She is fulfilling LOYALLY her one true mission in life — the ethnic genocide of the hated Germans.

This genocide is the “punishment of Amalek,” the death sentence pronounced by Jewish leaders on the German nation for rising up against Jewish hegemony in 1933 by electing the antisemitic Adolf Hitler legally as their chancellor, and then his exposing worldwide of Jewish evil.

Rudolf Hess, Adolf Hitler and (bald) Julius Streicher, whose magazine Der Stürmer was harshly antisemitic, and went into gritty topics such as  Jewish porn, homosexuality, incest, pedophilia and ritual murder.

A comrade wrote me this week that he had a dream where he had brown skin and so did everyone else, and there were just a few whites left. I said:

This is you in a future incarnation

in a brown world.

And I said this because he let me down when I critically needed help,  we were facing homelessness, and he had gotten in $10,000.  We lost everything we had in December of last year because we could not afford a trailer to take it with us to Michigan in September 2014, nor could we afford the storage fee for keeping it in December 2014. We have now only what we could stuff a year ago into a 1996 Crown Victoria.

And this young soul sat on his $10,000, while fully aware of white-nationalist truth, mentally being a WN, knowing us, and hearing from me directly that we were in dire need.

So, yes, in his next incarnation he will be in a world where everyone is brown or black, himself included, on a planet where Jews are the pitiless master race and only a handful of whites exist, living every second in fear.

In Quest of the Unknown Brahman

Is there a meaning to life . . . or is it all just a bad joke?

1437270416957I was at my lowest ebb, at the point of suicide, when I opened a little white book in a second-hand bookstore in India and read these electrifying words that were to change my life and give me new hope:

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. It is founded on our thoughts, it is based on our thoughts. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain always follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him like his shadow that never leaves him.”

These are the opening lines of  the Dhammapada, a Buddhist classic; a very short book of precious wisdom reportedly containing the words of the founder of Buddhism himself, Gautama Buddha. The mind, according to the Dhammapadda, is indeed everything. It is preeminent. Mind did not arise out of matter, as the prevailing idea in modern science appears to be, but matter arouse out of mind.

Mind came first.

The great physicist Sir James Jeans was once asked in an interview: “Do you believe that life on this planet is the result of some sort of accident, or do you believe that it is a part of some great scheme?”

He replied:

“I incline to the idealistic theory that consciousness is fundamental, and that the material universe is derivative from consciousness, not consciousness from the material universe. In general, the universe seems to me to be nearer to a Great Thought than to a great machine. It may well be that each individual consciousness ought to be compared to a brain-cell in a Universal Mind.” (See here)

Bertrand Russell was to refine this view.

There was no separate “mind stuff” and “physical stuff” in the universe; they are one and the same. This view, technically known as neutral monism, is quite popular nowadays and is held to be the truth by many scientists, including VS Ramachandran, professor of neuroscience at the University of California, San Diego, and adjunct professor of biology at the Salk Institute. “Perhaps mind and matter,” he notes, “are like two sides of a Möbius strip that appear different but are in fact the same.” (The Emerging Mind, Reith Lectures 2003, p.37).

Uncanny inklings of all this can be found in Buddhism and Vedanta. The great Indian mystics, Shankara, Madhva and Ramanuja, taking their inspiration from the Upanishads, already knew what the scientists of the future would discover for themselves many years later: that the Universe is a live and conscious Super Being.

I would now like to say a few words about Brahman and the philosophy of Vedanta and will begin by quoting a short poem by Emerson called “Brahma”. This will serve as an introduction.

brahma-pushkar

Brahma

by Ralph Waldo Emerson (JdN: no, not a Hindu with a dot on his forehead)

Ralph_Waldo_Emerson_ca1857

If the red slayer think he slays,
Or if the slain think he is slain,
They know not well the subtle ways
I keep, and pass, and turn again.

Far or forgot to me is near;
Shadow and sunlight are the same;
The vanished gods to me appear;
And one to me are shame and fame.

They reckon ill who leave me out;
When me they fly, I am the wings;
I am the doubter and the doubt,
I am the hymn the Brahmin sings.

The strong gods pine for my abode,
And pine in vain the sacred Seven;
But thou, meek lover of the good!
Find me, and turn thy back on heaven.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-82), was an American writer much influenced by Indian philosophy. His poem “Brahma” is a poetic attempt to encapsulate Vedanta, the non-dualistic teachings of the Hindu sages which are based on the Upanishads.

This is the idea that there is only ONE transcendental Being, Brahman, and that all other beings exist merely as fragments in Brahman’s mind.

Enlightenment for the individual human being consists in realizing that the individual soul, the Atman, is part of Brahman: just as the water drop in the ocean is part of the ocean and is one with it.

To realize that in a sense one IS Brahman is to achieve the ultimate insight: Tat tvam asi, or “That thou art.”

§

In the higher realms of consciousness the individual human identity disperses like mist or vapor and the self is seen to be illusory and part of the world illusion, maya. Existence itself simply becomes an elaborate game or sport in which Brahman enters into each individual being and experiences their lives through them. This is known in Sanskrit as lila, or sport.

In practice this means that all of us actors on the human stage are Brahman playing different roles. The lover and the loved one are not two different beings; they are in essence the same being playing different parts in an elaborate play. They have forgotten, having been encumbered with different masks or personas, that they are the same being—the same Being behind their individual masks or personalities.

They have forgotten, alas, that they are sockpuppets of Brahman!

Emerson hints at this in his poem but does not make the distinction altogether clear. However, the Svetasvatara Upanishad spells it out clearly for all to see. Addressing Brahman, it says:

Thou art woman, thou art man,
Thou art the youth, thou art the maiden,
Thou art the old man tottering with his staff;
Thou facest everywhere.

(The Upanishads, translated by Swami Prabhavananda and Christopher Isherwood.)

The Western skeptic, relying solely on common sense and empirical science, rejects all the above as metaphyscal mumbojumbo. One such scoffer is the Victorian writer Andrew Lang (1844-1912) who pokes fun at Emerson’s poem in a cruel parody. Here it is:

PARODY OF EMERSON’S “BRAHMA”

If the wild bowler thinks he bowls,
Or if the batsman thinks he’s bowled,
They know not, poor misguided souls,
They too shall perish unconsoled.

I am the batsman and the bat,
I am the bowler and the ball,
The umpire, the pavilion cat,
The roller, pitch, and stumps, and all.

(Well done, Andrew! You’ve had your little laugh. Now go stand in the dunce’s corner!)

Incidentally, I could be wrong about this, but I think it’s possible that Emerson got ‘Brahman’ mixed up with ‘Brahma’. They are not the same. And it is Brahman, not Brahma, that Emerson has to be talking about.

Brahma is simply one of the trinity of supreme gods in the Hindu pantheon, the other two being Vishnu and Shiva. Brahma is the Creator, Vishnu the Preserver, Shiva the Destroyer.

THE HINDU TRINITY:
BRAHMA, VISHNU AND SHIVA

brahmavishnushiva

“Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva are not three different beings or three different entities…in fact, they are not beings or entities at all…they are the three different aspects of the one all-ensouling Life of the Universe.”

Brahman is altogether different: the transcendental Absolute which cannot be referred to as “He” or even as “It”.

§

Brahman (ब्रह्मन् brahman) is “the unchanging reality amidst and beyond the world, which cannot be exactly defined but is Sat-cit-ānanda (being-consciousness-bliss).”

It is necessary to understand that Brahman is not to be thought of as an Entity who has the attributes or qualities of existence, consciousness and bliss. Brahman has no attributes or qualities, but is regarded as Existence itself, Consciousness itself, Bliss itself.  The highest of the high, Brahman is said to be beyond all human conception and cannot be caught in the net of words.

This has been said so often by the great philosophers of Vedanta—by Shankara, Ramanuja, and Madhva among the great medievalists and by their modern disciples Ramakrishna, Vivekananda, Aurobindo and Radhakrishnan—that it is now taken as a self-evident truth, based on personal experience of the divine presence, that Brahman is the Absolute Ineffable. The general idea is this: the less said about Brahman the better, for the more said, the more certain it is to be misleading, inaccurate, and not worth saying. He who speaks, lies.

The great Chinese philosopher Lao-Tzu, speaking of the equally mysterious Tao (the Way), puts it beautifully in a pithy and memorable phrase:

‘Those who know do not say. Those who say do not know.”

It follows paradoxically from the above that everything I’ve said here about Brahman has to be “misleading, inaccurate, and not worth saying”, since I have been foolish enough to put into words what is beyond language. But the same applies to anyone who talks about these matters when the best policy is silence. To quote the inimitable Lao-Tzu again: “The usefulness of a pot comes from its emptiness.” (Tao Te Ching)

§

A puzzling question arises: given Brahman’s self-sufficiency, its perfection and need of nothing apart from itself, why does Brahman choose to manifest at all? Why fragment itself into multitudinous beings and assume the limitations of matter when mind alone—its own Overmind—is surely more than sufficient? Sri Aurobindo (1872-1950) does his best to answer this riddle.

“If, then, being free to move or remain eternally still, to throw itself into forms or retain the potentiality of form itself, it indulges the power of movement and formation, it can be only for one reason, for delight.” (Sanskrit: ananda).

— Sri Aurobindo, The Life Divine, p. 91

Brahman, in other words, delights in realizing the infinite possibilities inherent in its own nature. Ananda, it must be remembered—meaning bliss/ joy/delight—is not an attribute or quality of Brahman but is Brahman itself, along with Being and Consciousness. These three, Being-Consciousness-Bliss, form a triune unity subsumed under the Sanskrit term SAT-CIT-ANANDA which is a synonym for Brahman.

SAT = Being, existence.
CIT (sit, chit)  = Consciousness, mind.
ANANDA = Bliss, delight.

That the One should become Many, because it derives delight and satisfaction from doing so, is not the answer in my humble opinion. This completely neglects to take into account the existence of evil and pain.

According to the Vedantic philosophy, Brahman is—indeed, has to be—both predator and prey, oppressor and victim, torturer and tortured. Take note of this extraordinary situation in the Emerson poem above: Brahman is here described as the “red slayer” as well as the “slain”. Brahman apparently takes delight in being the torturer who inflicts pain, but how can the victim experiencing the torture (who is also Brahman) take delight in being tortured? It makes no sense at all. We have reached an impasse and must begin again from scratch.

Let’s look at it another way.

If existence is maya or illusion—if life is basically a “dream” from which we will one day awaken—then we are no more than fictional characters in a super novel (or play or movie) that is all taking place in the mind of Brahman. We all know that the pain in a horror movie isn’t real. Hannibal Lecter never really killed and tortured anyone. It’s all make-belief. This is no consolation however to Hannibal Lecter’s victims if, in their own plane of virtual existence, they are actually experiencing the most horrendous agonies—agonies of pain which to us, on an altogether different plane of reality, are purely fictional.

There are other, more frightening ways of explaining these labyrinthine complexities. These all lead us into a maze of madness. Can God be evil and capricious? Can evil be part of his nature? Are God and Devil in partnership? Questions few dare to ask. Merely asking these questions in past times would have merited death.

A memorable line in Shakespeare’s King Lear hints at the scary possibility that God isn’t particularly “good”.  “As flies to wanton boys are we to the gods; they kill us for their sport.” Not everyone, it seems, is happy with the philosophy of Vedanta which fails to explain the problem of Evil.

Here is the great Persian poet, Omar Khayyam, influenced no doubt by Zorastrianism, throwing down the gauntlet to God in Fitzgerald’s brilliant translation of the Rubaiyat:

“Oh, Thou, who Man of baser Earth didst make
And who with Eden didst devise the Snake;
For all the Sin wherewith the Face of Man
Is blacken’d, Man’s Forgiveness give—and take!“

I have put that final word into italics. The 12th-century  Persian poet is making no bones about it. He is blaming God for screwing up, for making a right royal mess of things.

Are there parallels with Vedanta here? Not in the above quote, but there are parallels elsewhere. The concept of maya, the dreamlike illusoriness of life, is a common feature. Life is real enough for those living it. That’s for sure. Pain is real. And yet there is the prevalent underlying idea that, behind all the reality, Life is a dream. A mirage in the mist of Brahman’s mind. A phantasmagoria. Here is the Rubaiyat again:

“‘Tis all a Chequer-board of Nights and Days
Where Destiny with Men for Pieces plays:
Hither and thither moves, and mates, and slays.
And one by one back in the Closet lays.”

I have italicized the final phrase. We humans are seen here as no more than chess pieces on Brahman’s chessboard. When the game of life is over, we are put back in the cupboard. We sit there in the dark, waiting to be brought out for the next game. Who is Brahman playing chess with? No one but himself, given that in Vedanta only Brahman exists in any real sense and all other beings are phantasmagoric projections of the divine reality. Can Brahman play chess with himself? How can that be? Well, whatever the outcome, Brahman must experience the delight (ananda) of winning every game. Unfortunately, he must also have the disappointment of losing constantly—unless, of course, he doesn’t mind losing and derives pleasure from doing so.

As we can see, this is a hopeless paradox. We are wasting our time chopping words and chasing shadows. We are indulging in idle chatter. Everything we say about Brahman is futile and nonsensical. The only recourse we have, as Lao Tzu pointed out long ago, is to take refuge in silence. ‘Those who know do not say. Those who say do not know.”

One thing is certain. The knowledge of Brahman cannot be gained through book study or sense experience or the scientific method. Such knowledge can only be arrived at through intensive meditation, worldly renunciation, shattering austerities, and sexual continence: in short, after a long process of self-purification such as all the great sages from time immemorial have had to undergo. As Vergil once said: Sic itur ad astra — “thus one gets to the stars.”

Jesus summed it up best : “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”

….My reaction

This is excellent to stimulate thought and open chakras. But, ummm, as for “sexual continence” at the end, let us say temporary sexual continence, because permanent sexual continence means no more babies and no more white race. We need enlightened parents and sacred marriages and families!
