The dark forces behind power

The dark forces behind power.

“Force without spiritual foundations is doomed to failure.” – Adolf Hitler*

I think it can be logically contended that in terms of world history, Adolf Hitler was one of the most significant leaders in terms of the impact he had at the time, and indeed still has today.  People’s reactions are somewhat passionate, even at the mere utterance of his name, there is always something to say about him.

He managed to carry out the most apocalyptic genocide of the 20th century.  Reflecting on his demonically racist nationalist policies sends most people into a state of unease.  However, once we manage to get past this initial discomfort, we can see that he is a man who clearly wielded a great deal of power and, in his eyes and the eyes of many others, managed to successfully attain his goal of developing and sustaining a so-called supreme race.   What we should be asking ourselves is how he managed to do it.  How did he manage to convince people that his policies were right when anyone with an ounce of humanity could see there was clearly something morally wrong with what he aspired to carry out.  One side of the story we don’t often address in public is the fact that he had a really solid plan.  In terms of policy implementation that is, he was pretty smart to pull off such a feat.  Either that or he had some smart people behind and around him, but from what I’ve read it seems he had quite a hands-on role in his time as Nazi leader.  I have to add here that I in no way condone his policies but am looking at them purely from the point of objective analysis.  I assume those of you that are taking the time to read this, and who have read my other posts understand my stance.  It has to be said though that I’m astonished at his overwhelming ability to coerce an entire nation and beyond into believing that there was a mythical race that existed that was superior to others.  I say mythical because if you do your research on the Aryan race you will see that scholars of Indo-Aryan history have generally rejected the idea of the existence of the race, in the context that it was used for racist ideologies such as his**.

So interesting it is then that he made this quote.   Not only does it sound quite similar to the quote made by Helen Blavatsky (renowned occultist) below, it also indicates the use of occult power within the political realm.  For me this is really an important concept to grasp.  This concept is one that seems to widen the chasm between the group of so-called ‘conspiracy theorists’ and the geo-political analysts. These two groups can often agree on the basics of the new world order theory and the desire of a one world government and united world order and all the trappings that go with it.  Beyond this point their thoughts divide. The geo-politics thinkers stick with this notion of it all being about power politics, and the conspiracy theorists (I have to find a better term for them – suggestions welcome!) keep questioning and examining the wider view.  A lot of this questioning involves spirituality in one form or another, whether it be organized religion, spiritual practices or the occult.  Throughout history man’s search for power and control using higher powers has been relentless.   The individual’s lifelong search for control of their daily lives through religion and spirituality is also carried into group and team spiritual practice.  Religious worship of all denominations itself, is deemed most effective in groups to create a more powerful, usually positive, and hence effective energy.  If this is the case, and both the individual and groups are both units of society, as is the government, or any other organized group such as corporations, then why does it seem so far-fetched to imagine a group of men carrying out worship or occult rituals in the boardroom, or in parliament?  Apart from the kind of energy they wish to create, positive versus negative, is there really any difference between these men and groups of men carrying out rituals or ceremonies in their homes or a place of worship?  Why is it a phenomenon that is often quickly dismissed as fantastical? Labelled an idea that people repudiate so readily, when it’s clearly not so far removed from the everyday reality of spiritual practices.

Going back to Hitler as a primary example. This man carried out one of the most successful commands of a nation and massacres of a race in modern history using occult practices, of which he made no secret, and for which there is a lot of documented evidence, some of which I will link below should you wish to investigate further.  As has been seen before in political history, policies and practices are tried and tested.  Consequently, successful ones are used again and again and again. It should follow then that the great powers or world leaders that follow and preceded Hitler would at least lead by example, and attempt to use a similar strategy to make sure their plans are carried out with the utmost accuracy and efficacy.

Pioneer esoteric, famed occultist, and “mother” of the New Age, Helen Blavatsky said the following:

“…if purely material implements are capable of blowing up, from a few corners, the great cities of the globe, providing the murderous weapons are guided by expert hands – what terrible dangers might not arise from magical occult secrets being revealed, and allowed to fall into the possession of ill-meaning people! A thousand times more dangerous and lethal are these, because neither the criminal hand, nor the immaterial invisible weapon used, can ever be detected.” (Studies in Occultism, pp.28-29).


The above was originally published in Lucifer magazine*** 1891, and was re-published in a collection of Blavatsky’s writings titled Studies in Occultism.

Christopher Hale released ‘Himmler’s Crusade: The Nazi Expedition to Find the Origins of the Aryan Race’, in 2006 after extensive research and interviews with central people such as the anthropologist Dr Bruno Beger who was hired by the Nazi party/SS to assist them on their quest to Tibet to find the true ancestry of Tibetans and hence that of the Aryan race.  Hale goes on to explain Helen Blavatsky’s involvement with the Nazi party.

“At the societal level, occultism can add upon an underlying destructive worldview or become the foundation for a culture of terror. The German Nazi movement blended myth and occultism, pseudoscience and technology. And it’s no surprise to learn that it’s pan-pagan roots were firmly planted in the soil of Blavatsky’s teachings.” (Christopher Hale)  Again in his book ‘Himmler’s Crusades’^, he sums it up; Myth is never harmless.”

Appealing once again to the logic of those who know that there are many morally questionable practices that people of power are involved with, as discussed in my last post.  If someone as powerful and influential as Hitler is telling us that ‘spiritual’ practices are used, and without them force is doomed to failure, perhaps we should get ourselves past the evil of his actions, listen carefully to what he said, and think about it.
