2020: More conversations with the Advaitist, Phil Langdon, on his latest video:
ME, Hey, Phil…It’s that time of year again:) All the best to you… In your view, does Advaita mean to you that there is only this existence and an ocean of bliss? Unpacked a bit: that all there is are STATES of consciousness…Compared to the traditional view that there are Loka planes wherein there are those that exist within subtle bodies (astral)…Swamiji just did a video outlining the Dvaita/Advaita distinction (very good)…I’ll link below a video that suggests a multi-dimensional universe (perhaps multiverse)…The query is your view on the State/Dimension issue… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vlOREjaRBo Just a note (and I don’t mean to be picky) Satan in Judaism means Adversary of Man and not the adversary of God…FWIW: the traditional symbol of Yaldabaoth is the Lion Headed Serpent which fuses the Lion of Judaism (Yahweh) with Satan...”I The Lord Create Good And Evil”…
Phil, Hi Andrew, my best to you too! Well, that is a subject! Advaita is: “Advaita Vedānta (/ʌðˈvaɪtə vɛˈðɑːntə/; Sanskrit: अद्वैत वेदान्त, IAST: Advaita Vedānta, literally, “non-duality”) is a school of Hindu philosophy, and is a classic system of spiritual realization in Indian tradition. The term Advaita refers to the idea that Brahman alone is ultimately real, the phenomenal transient world is an illusory appearance (maya) of Brahman, and the true self, atman, is not different from Brahman.” I couldn’t agree more with this definition. Non-duality is “Spirit.” Or 0-Dimension, as in the triple nature I show in the video from my book. Spirit is not a state of consciousness. “States” of consciousness associate with bodies/brains. The filter system. So at the back of the ascension handbook is a section in the Appendices concerning different states of consciousness associating with Samadhi states. There are any number of states of consciousness: Anger is a state. Bliss is a state. Laughing is a state. Any emotional state is a state of consciousness. Being under an illusion is a state of consciousness. Seeing a UFO is a state of consciousness. The list goes on. The foundational “state” (ie: spirit itself) is not a state. These states are only associated with the varying degrees of manifestation in energy. Spirit is not energy. Therefore spirit has no state as such. There are many dimensions. A youtube comment section is not the place to go into that! Definition of Satan: the angel who in Jewish belief is commanded by God to tempt humans to sin, to accuse the sinners, and to carry out God’s punishment. Can you read between the lines? Satan is the opposer of man and God. He tempts man. Do you get it? Think of the fact that the creative principle cannot be any other way. It is fixed like that. Just so. It’s also a thing. It reminds me of business. A company employs someone to do a job. If that person fails, they are brought to justice. The company has a policy. That policy is like the creative principle. It will not change to suit anyone’s particular circumstances. We cannot shout at the devil because no one is listening. It’s a thing, not a person. It’s a principle, not a person. The creative principle generates a tree of good and evil (Cosmos). You can experience both in the cosmos. Can’t you? I have. For sure. The evil comes from the ego and the perceived indifference of the cosmos. God, being love, is VERY personal. The complete opposite. All of this is self-imposed! We are God incarnate into the system we created with our selves to make sure we become God. It’s really foolproof and perfect. It allows us to know truth (Advaita) in a dual system. I hope that’s a good enough answer? There is always more and it’s quite a contemplation to get through this subject clearly.
Thanks, Phil…That’s a very good answer! I won’t dwell on the Judaism/Satan things as I get your definition. This brings up some interesting controversies though! Theoria Apophasis (another Advaita Monist) is saying that modern science is deluded and ignorant. I don’t see how he couldn’t be right if Idealism is true. If this is a dream then modern science is plain wrong. But things still work…I’m typing on a computer, etc… As a Christian Gnostic, I sit in the Dvaita camp and lean towards emergent panpsychism although I agree with your definition of the ultimate source. The problem for me is I don’t dwell on who is right and who is wrong within kosmology and metaphysics: my focus is on the question of How Shall We Live? And I don’t like what I’m seeing at all as Neo-Nonduality gets instantiated into once Christian culture. HOMELESS? Well, that’s your karma juxtaposed to elites declaring that this is their karma to be vacuous and vain and rich (see Trump the Kabbalist as an example) and what is going on in America (and the world) as these practitioners of the non-dual schools take over civilization. My last few blogs in my annual 12-part series are dealing with this issue. I’ve always maintained that the caste system is crap-metaphysics and as western-esotericism (Vedanta/Kabbalism) takes over once Christian culture we are seeing the return and justification for mass-homelessness via more, IMO, crap metaphysics, as it pertains to the question of How Shall We Live? It’s here we’ll likely part ways…

‘Tis the time in this series to talk about E.T.! Well, yes, it does seem like modernity’s preferred explanation for everything strange and unknown. I’ve never seen a UFO and I wandered the boonies all night long for near 7-years…Notta! And I saw many incredible things in the night sky but everything I saw was natural; I’ve never seen E. T. either. I have had many spiritual experiences, though, but I’ve been able to distance myself from them and try to analyze them from a non-biased objective position (as much as this is possible).In 2019 I’m going to mention that I believe humanity is dealing with spiritual archons and not E.T. I’ll link a video below of one of the worlds leading mystics and I’ll add my questions to him.
For me, it’s the ancient megalithic architecture that offers clues to some other intelligence involved on earth because Iron/stone age humans didn’t build these things all over the earth. So whatever E.T. is it was somehow involved in the creation of these structures which all seem to date back to around 12,000 years ago (so much for Biblical historicity). Of course, there is endless anecdotal evidence but I view that as not much different from religious anecdotes: it doesn’t amount to proof of anything; and moreover, the anecdotes couldn’t be more diverse, confusing and contradictory. I’ve quipped in the past that if all this was the work of angels then they are the most confused beings in the universe–E.T. theory doesn’t fare any better.
If it ends up being true it would mean to me that the universe we are in is extraordinarily convoluted; that God doesn’t exist in any conventional sense, and that from humanity’s perspective it’s best to view God as an alien extraterrestrial of some sort–the Starseed theory. There are a few theories I like more than others: the one where an E.T. race got stranded on earth and they were also responsible for human DNA manipulation; this race of E.T’s has one general goal: to get their technology back so they can escape this planet again–the Atlantis/Lemuria theory and concomitant with this theory is the notion of myriad alien races–many of them involved here on earth.
Ancient texts also allude to the Anu…This is another theory I still consider possible. What’s interesting to me as a Christian Gnostic is that newly found texts… The
Either one of these theories points towards a conspiracy of elites who are keeping any truths on this matter hidden to the general population. One aspect I find intriguing is these theories allude to the possibility that the earth’s academies are all coordinated in two primary ways: to hide the truth and to a commitment to re-acquiring lost technology. I have a personal quibble with the earth’s academies in that they are the one group of people I’ll lay blame on if civilization collapses because they should have known and done better! This particular theory is a somewhat coherent theory of why the academies are culpable and endlessly corrupted by the corporate machine and its machinations while debt slaving another generation of students.
I’ll touch on Buddhism and offer what I consider Golden Rule economics as a solution to civilizations woes as I wrap up this series of twelve posts.
