On an extended trek into the vast wilderness of the Himalayas, explorer M.G. Hawking chanced on an extraordinary opportunity. A series of adventures led him to an ancient Oracle Temple in the highlands of Tibet where he encountered a true shamanistic Oracle from the esoteric B’on wisdom tradition. The author’s discussions with the Oracle covered a wide range of subjects, revealing a series of profound insights.
A brief excerpt of the Oracle’s comments regarding our present civilization: “The life of a government springs from the life of its people, the life of the people from the life of their mind, hence the life of their mind determines the future of their land. This future is found only in freedom—from deception, from destruction, from the false—life is found in freedom to recognize and express the true. Among your Founders were enlightened ones; your form of government was designed and implemented to assure individual freedom and nurture individual spirituality and creativity. It has undergone an immense swing to the opposite pole; it now assures nothing but mass order at any cost and nurtures nothing but the imposition of mass materiality and mass productivity. Freedom is gone, replaced by economic seeking and monetary accumulation. Yet this materiality is utterly and absolutely false. The resulting emptiness of life and alteration, depletion and destruction of the earth telegraph this with alarming clarity.
“In your country what was once a government of reason and law has been replaced by a tyranny of men. The sovereignty of the people has become a sovereignty of manipulators, politicians as conscious agents of a great deception, the power of which dements even more than it corrupts. Your society is divided into a tiny group of men who choose and decide, a small number of others who know far less and decide nothing yet wield power in conformity with the hidden policies—those who gather in your congress to go through the motions of democracy’s ghost—and the masses, compelled to act and live in total incomprehension of the manipulation of their movements, and so their lives.” Author’s note: “As the Oracle expressed this, there was no trace of mocking or bitterness in his voice, only a certain weariness, a calm acceptance of what is.”
