Yes, this wonderful little book from the 1940s, unjustly forgotten, is back.
Given the recent theocratic decision of the Supreme Court, I thought I would revisit a post of mine from a couple of years ago…
It is the religious right-wing loud mouths who always can be counted upon to a) demand that we obey the Holy Bible and b) make the claim that there is no such thing as separation of Church & State in America because those words are not in the Constitution. Never mind that this separation was primary on the minds of those who wrote the Constitution. Forget that this separation is what made the United States of America absolutely unique in the history of Western “civilization.” And the hell with the facts that the United States Supreme Court has consistently held that such a separation exists. Throw all that away if you wish. Let us see what the Bible itself has to say on the subject:
As Moses is ready to die and the Israelites prepare to enter the Promised Land, Moses grows concerned that there the tribes have no leader to keep the people from anarchy. So, being Moses, he consults God. Here is what happens in the King James Version of the Holy Bible:
And Moses spake unto the LORD, saying,
Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation,
Which may go out before them, and which may go in before them, and which may lead them out, and which may bring them in; that the congregation of the LORD be not as sheep which have no shepherd.
And the LORD said unto Moses, Take thee Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and lay thine hand upon him;
And set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation; and give him a charge in their sight.
And thou shalt put some of thine honour upon him, that all the congregation of the children of Israel may be obedient.
And he shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall ask counsel for him after the judgment of Urim before the LORD: at his word shall they go out, and at his word they shall come in, both he, and all the children of Israel with him, even all the congregation.
And Moses did as the LORD commanded him: and he took Joshua, and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation:
And he laid his hands upon him, and gave him a charge, as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.
Do you get what happened? Moses puts Joshua in charge of the people and has Aaron’s son Eleazar in charge of the priesthood. Moses and, more to the point, GOD ALMIGHTY have vested two separate people with the powers of Church & State. It is right there in the Good Book. Joshua is in charge of the people and Eleazar is in charge of tending into God’s judgment. It’s all there in black and white.
As long as the religious literalists insist that the Bible is a history book, and as long as they insist that it is God’s “divine plan” for humanity, silly claims but they make them nonetheless, then we see by example that God wants the power of the state separated from the power of the religious establishment. There is no getting around it.
Further driving the point home is 1 Samuel, 13:8-14 where King Saul, tired of waiting for the arrival of Samuel the priest, makes his own burnt offering. When Samuel arrives all hell breaks loose. Why? Because Saul has usurped the power of the clergy and thus violated the biblical separation of Church & State. Can it be any more clear?

Well, not really about the weather, but about the weather forecast. Yesterday, here in NYC rain was predicted yet it never came. Today they said it would be warm, the temperature will not see 60°. Yes, they do get it wrong way too often. Surveys show them at best accurate 75% of the time. That is why they hedge their bets by saying “there’s a 50% chance of rain” meaning it will rain or it won’t. Thanks guys. It’s ALWAYS going to rain or not. As a Tarot reader if I had the dismal record of a TV/Radio weatherman, I would have no clients. And deservedly so. Just listen to my Tarot reading show (Rev. Eliot’s Magickal Window) at the ask1radio archive – or live at 11 Eastern Time on Wednesday nights – to see for yourself how accurate I am. I don’t need to trumpet my accuracy when it is there for people to hear. But why can’t weather predicting pros, with all their satellites and gazillions of dollars worth of equipment, not measure up to me, a plain, old fashioned Tarot reader? So here is my plan – and you can join me:
I am going to use occult means to predict the weather and compare it with the professionals. For a period of time I will use a pendulum to see if I may divine the weather. I found a weather-related pendulum chart on-line and I will print it out and use it. I will ask at night about the next day and then verify in the morning. And I will check during the day, keeping meticulous records. And then I will report back. Try it yourself and let me know what happens. Here is the chart (click on it then grab it):
Keep me posted! Let’s see who gets better results – Mr. Blow-Dry with his maps, or the simple Esoteric Pendulum. Maybe we can all get jobs in TV predicting the weather!

THIS IS IMPORTANT
Has it occurred to you yet that, ideologies aside, ALL the troubles of humanity since the dawn of what we call civilization have been caused by people trying to improve things? We hate the dark, so we invent candles, which lead to the improvement called electric lights, which pollute the air and surround us with magnetic radiation and then nuclear plants and THREE MILE ISLAND! FUKUSHIMA! Why? All because we are the ONLY ANIMALS ON EARTH who refuse to accept that the world gets dark at night. So now we have 24 hour light. Was it worth it?
Why does the human animal have to improve the world when all other animals live in it the way it is, not the way they think it should be? I agree with those who say that civilization is a HUGE mistake. There is nothing that is wrong with the world now that PEOPLE didn’t cause in an attempt to improve the world. Think about it. No other animals have screwed things up making life “better” or wasted any time arguing about how to do it. Only humanity.
All our troubles have come from people who honestly thought they were making things better. That is the basis of all political arguments: who has the BEST way to make things better. We had things in perfect order and harmony, like all other creatures on the earth! Only WE had to improve things….
I don’t care a whit if you are RIGHT or LEFT or CENTER. All your proposals to improve things ever since the dawn of time have resulted in the world the way it is now. So why should we turn to the very process which screwed things up… to fix things? We had life very good before the improvements. We had food growing out of the ground. We lived together. But then people invented money and then greed took over. Even Chimps, as new studies show, share what they have with other chimps. Why are we not as smart as a chimp? All the talk about equitable distribution of wealth, pro and con, misses the point: WE DON’T NEED ANY WEALTH! We had everything, just as the lion or the hippo or the dolphin has everything. We did live in the same world as they. Do they slave away at a job they hate? Do they envy people who amass more THINGS than they do? No! So why do we? BECAUSE PEOPLE TRIED TO IMPROVE THINGS. Now we waste time and energy repairing the improvements. Every situation that politicians talk about fixing is something that people broke in the first place. What did the Rabbi Jesus say? “Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
Old Jesus was describing the natural order of things. We had everything we needed at the dawn of humanity. But along come people with ways to MAKE THINGS EASIER and they screwed it all up. I have met people who worked their asses off trying to find an easy way to get what they want. But they don’t even know WHY THEY WANTED THAT in the first place?
The GARDEN OF EDEN is a symbol of the perfection we lived in before we tried to improve things. Humanity collapses once we OPEN OUR EYES TO IMPROVEMENTS. “I cannot eat from this tree? Ok. I WILL eat from it and see what happens.” Modern civilization is what happened. The myth of the Hebrews bears a strikingly important message about improving things. Do the improvements EVER whorl out? Look at the world around you and answer that for yourself. It has nothing to do with CONSERVATIVE or PROGRESSIVE. Both positions are fighting over who has the best way to improve things when… WE SHOULD NOT HAVE IMPROVED THINGS IN THE FIRST PLACE! It is the improvements that we now fight over improving. This is what Stanley Kubrick meant with his famous JUMP CUT in 2001: A Space Odyssey:
We have NOT changed, just our technology has changed. We are STILL AT THE DAWN OF MAN, even today. All that has actually changed are the tools. And the problems those tools gave us. Such as… WAR.
It is worth noting that in 2001: ASO, technology – that is, improvement – is intimately linked with death and murder. So much so that the first “machine” is used by the proto-human not just to kill for food, but to commit the first murder (Cain/Abel), and by the end of the film a machine turns to murdering people. The machine, like Pinocchio before him, has indeed “become” human.
We do not need to fix the problems caused by all the improvements in the world, we need to get AROUND the problems to return to a form of existence without the things we did to rectify things. Try letting your home get dark at night. Try living in harmony with nature. This is hard when you have to commute 2 hours a day, or pay out thousands of dollars a month just to survive. I know. HERE IS A TRUE STORY:
A close friend of mine was THE BIGGEST STAR IN SHOW BUSINESS in the early 1960s. He had everything that people claim to desire. He was young, not yet 25, rich, had millions of dollars, and he was quite famous. Then something happened in the world and his career ended LITERALLY OVER NIGHT. Soon he descended into drugs and self-destruction. Knowing this was killing him, he GAVE AWAY ALL HIS MONEY and MOST OF HIS BELONGINGS. He kept a VW mini-bus (it WAS the Sixties, after all) and a HUGE tent. He was going to drive from Los Angeles to Maine and live in the tent. He would finance the drive across country by playing music in bars and restaurants across the country. He used the name Johnny Sunday. So before he did this, he said farewell to friends. One friend, a fabulously wealthy Hollywood producer, listened to his plans and said, “Wow. Just drive off and live in a tent in the woods… I sure wish I could afford to do that.” AFFORD TO DO THAT?!?!?! My friend did that because he HAD NO DAMN MONEY AT ALL! He had stripped his life down to the bare essentials and went off to experience existence as naturally as he could in this insane world. But his friend COULD NOT AFFORD TO DO THAT! So I ask you, did they live in the same world? Apparently not. My friend’s eyes opened and he saw that the artificial life we have created is what was killing him. His producer buddy did not. And never did. My friend was later considered a mystic, at best, a fucking nut at worst. But the people who had so much, and so deeply bought into the civilized world ENVIED HIM. Tom Hanks paid him enough to buy a house in Florida just for the rights to his story, which Hanks never filmed. I was with him when actor John Goodman said he simply had to learn the “secret” of life from him – Goodman never ever spoke to him about anything after that meeting. We get what we are trained to want and then what do we have? Nothing half as good as the lion or the hippo or the dolphin. Don’t worry about “which side” has the best ideas for fixing things. NONE OF THEM DO. Malcolm Forbes was just as wrong as Karl Marx.
Look at the news: it is filled with people ARGUING about fixing things that people ruined in the first place. True change and peace will not come from fixing society. It will come from inside. It will come when you see that the artificial environment we created is killing you. You say I am wrong? I am using MODERN TECHNOLOGY to communicate with you, so I am a hypocrite? Ha! I would not NEED to use this technology had people not improved things! I am using the very mistake we have made to POINT OUT THE MISTAKES. Most of you will resist this knowledge. Just like the Hollywood producer I mentioned above. Some of you will react violently to what I say. This is what PSYCHIATRISTS (and we are the ONLY animals who need them!) call “A Significant Reaction.” It signifies something about the way you see the world. USE IT! EXAMINE HOW YOU SEE THINGS! You are born into a false reality and trained from childhood to accept it as though it were natural. But it is hurting you. STRESS? ANXIETY? FEAR? WORRY? You were not meant to suffer these ills. CIVILIZATION imposed them upon you. And now the mere attempt to fix these problems CREATES THE STRESS AND FEAR AND WORRY. But we call it POLITICS.
You do not need to fix society to have the real power that awaits you when you see what life REALLY is. You already have the power. Many people do not even know the power they have – NATURALLY! – in their own brain and mind. I know what I can and cannot do AS A HUMAN BEING. I have written about it in this book:
There is nothing that you need from the outside. YOU HAVE THE POWER.

I decided to leave this post up for so long because in the time since I posted it, many hundreds of people have come here to see it. Some have bought the book UNMASKING FEAR and written to me about it. I will have a new post soon, but I think this post is extremely important, especially in the climate of fear deliberately being generated these days. Thank you for your interest.
“I am more afraid of the NSA than I am of terrorists,” said a local morning AM radio talker here in NYC. People called in to say that they to were living in fear of the American/Obama secret police state.
Other New Yorkers have been flooding the NY Times comment sections with statements attesting to their fear that under the new mayor crime will run riot and people will be murdered by the car-load. People in my community have expressed fear that soon crime and violence will be out of control in New York. Why is fear prevalent across the land? Who did this? Why did they do it?
Where does this come from?
It is deliberately implanted in the psyche by the “news” media. Why? To make money. Fear sells. With fear, people tune in to the TV/Radio news shows to see what is going to happen. Fear is the only thing the media has to sell. Look at the flood of TV ads and what they really sell: FEAR that your body stinks. FEAR that you have last year’s automobile/clothing styles/hair style/music and people are laughing at you. FEAR that you will lose your job. FEAR that you are getting older. FEAR that your money will soon be worthless (buy gold!!!!!). FEAR that your kids are on drugs. FEAR that you are too fat. FEAR that you may have a cold (oh, heaven forbid). FEAR of Muslims. FEAR that the stock market is rising and you are not in on it! FEAR that people don’t like you. FEAR that your children are failing in school… At the heart of advertising is always fear. I am sure that you can come up with more examples.
We all know that whole TV channels are dedicated to inciting fear. Usually, they are called “news” channels but take a look at them with this new lens. Look for the fear they promulgate. CRIME! INFLATION! THE FED! CONSERVATIVES! LIBERALS! WELFARE MOTHERS!!!! TERRORISTS (remember when it was COMMUNISTS? Same tune, different generation…)!!! It is what psychiatrists call “crazy-making” and we not only invite it into our homes, WE PAY FOR IT! We put out cold hard cash to watch programs that do nothing but scare us. Why do we do that? It makes no sense. Or… does it? Let’s see…
Fear in human beings triggers the Fight/Flight response. This is a very atavistic sensation and it is cut and dried: you fight or you run. That is it. So it precludes THINKING. When your thinking is shut down, you are a prime target for marketers who will sell you anything they want to sell you. And they know it. Of the several methods use by advertisers, one of the most common used to be called “The Bandwagon.” With this technique, you are told “everyone else is doing it, why aren’t you?” So at the heart of this is the fear that you are left out. That was a subtle approach compared to today’s advertising. How many people do you know who live in an almost constant state of anxiety and fear? And look what they fear: it is almost ALWAYS related to the big news headlines. Then that fear passes and – as if by magic – a new fear arises.
Because so many highly-paid people work full-time at engendering fear in the population, fear must be overcome. By overcoming fear we remove that arrow from their quiver. How do we overcome fear? Here are two things that will help. FIrst is a talk by the brilliant Ajahn Brahm. I urge you to take an hour to listen and absorb his message (of course, one of the biggest fears people have is that they just have no time. Well, make the time. See this instead of a TV show you habitually look at. This will reward you amply.)
In addition to the talk by Ajahn Brahm, I urge you to read this book from 1919, a time of great fear in the land…
UNMASKING FEAR is a short read (with a new set of introductions I wrote) but a powerful book. Only when we, as a society, reject fear will we be free and fully in control of our lives. Stop running from crisis to crisis! Start the new year with the best gift ever: Freedom From Fear!
Remember the words of President Roosevelt:
