Age (or the Aquarian Age) & World Government
The famous song about the
Aquarian Age states:
It is generally believed that the Aquarian Age started in the year 2000, 2160 years roughly being the Age of a Sign. The Piscean age started at around 200 BCE (Before Common Era). Let us study the symbolisms of the Piscean and the Aquarian Ages. As the Earth's precession is 72 degrees per degree, 2160 years is an Age Cycle. 25,920 years (12 x 2160) is a Processional Cycle, a Great Plato Year or an Aeon.
Pisces means Fish, and Jesus was the Redeemer of the Piscean Age. The Piscean Age emphasized Faith. The two fish of Pisces indicate dualism, and during this time the conflict between religion & science intensified as science rose against blind faith. The belief in an external God was rejected by science. Aquarius is ruled by two planets in astrology, Uranus & Saturn. Uranus represents independence and Saturn represents universal humanism. Humanism postulates that no dogma or political doctrine can save you; only you can save yourself. If you save yourself, you save society, you save the nation and the planet Earth! In other words, universal humanism will be the hallmark of the Aquarian Age.
The astrologic scholar Jeff Jawer remarks that the Aquarian Age has not arrived in his article "On The Cusp between Pisces and Aquarius." The first Venus Transit occurred in 2004 and the next one will be in 2012. These next 8 years will be like the Dark Night of the Soul, a chaotic period of purgatorial suffering as the Earth goes through a dark phase. Dr Jose Arguelles, the scholar who brought the concept of Harmonic Convergence, also thinks that the enlightening Age of Aquarius will dawn on the eve of 2012.
All freethinkers are excited about the New Aquarian Age where wisdom will blossom and importance will be on self development, self transformation, self realization and self actualization. Gone are the days of dogma and blind faith. Personal transformation will result in planetary transformation.
Dante, Bernard Shaw & Alice Bailey had highlighted in their writings that a World Government is the only solution to achieve permanent world peace. Mahesh Yogi inaugurated the World Government in 1975 in Seelisberg, Switzerland. He said, “In response to the call of time, a global organization has been structured, the non-political, the non-religious World Government which has the knowledge and expertise to create an ideal society.”
Foster Bailey, the husband of Alice Bailey, said that "Free Masonry is the descendent of a United World Religion, a divinely imparted religion. Then came separativeness and religions. Now we are striving for a United World Order." Dr. Wilhmhurst saw the dawning of the Aquarian Age as the fulfillment of the plan and said that Free Masonry may be the vehicle for that fulfillment. Wise people point out that the New Age Movement is the Universal Religion which H. G. Wells predicted would one day take over mankind. There is also a move to create a world stock market and control all governments in the world so that they can operate as one unit rather than many struggling for dominance over each other. The foundations behind the United Nations are spiritual. The Global Oneness Movement is gaining momentum and a Council of Global Governance has been constituted with Maurice Strong as the President.
The hand of the Mysteries controlled the establishment of the United States Government and the signature of the Mysteries may still be seen on the Great Seal of the United States of America. The Seal discloses a mass of Masonic symbols, chiefly amongst them the American Eagle, which is a conventionalized phoenix. The USA is not a perfect government, but it was an attempt to create a compassionate government. It has fallen far short of the true heart of compassion, but it is a lot closer to a compassionate government than many of the governments in the world. What has happened is that a few unknown but powerful people have corrupted the US government to serve their own purposes. Otherwise, the US government would not be so bad. The US Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter said, “The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise power from behind the scenes.”
The Third Testament
The New Age has been referred to as the Third Testament. While the Old and New Testaments emphasized that Truth is Freedom (Veritas vos Liberabit), New Age philosophy avers that self knowledge or knowledge of the absolute self alone can make you free! Global oneness can save the world. Globalists can bring a planetary transformation and not those who champion the cause of a Nation or a particular civilization over others. Some prominent globalists are Jeremy Rifkin, Norman Cousins, Elizabeth Clare Prophet, John Denver, George Lucas, Norman Lear, Alice Bailey, Alvin Toffler, Dr. Barbara Ray, Benjamin Creme, Levi Dowling, George Trevelyan, Fritjof Capra, Abraham Maslow, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Ruth Montgomery, Shirley MacLaine, J.Z. Knight, Marilyn Ferguson, David Spangler, Nelson Mandela & Gorbachev.
Marilyn Ferguson in her book “The Aquarian Conspiracy” remarks that the New Age Revolution is a movement characterized by “no political doctrines, no manifesto.” It is a movement “more universal than reform” and “more profound than a revolution.” The main characteristic of the New Aquarian Age will be spiritual democracy. Global integration has been achieved via the internet, which implements the global village concept. The World Wide Web is the true World Encyclopedia!
Pisces is characterized by two fish, the Eastern Fish and the Western Fish. The Eastern Fish represents the positive aspect of man and the Western Fish, the negative aspect. It indicates the fierce conflict between science and theology and conflicting ideologies, Marxism versus Mysticism, Existentialism versus Essentialism, and so on. The lower energies, such as greed, jealousy, ego and ignorance were expressed during the Piscean Age and higher energies like peace, love and truth will be exhibited in the Aquarian Age.
The internet is an Aquarian concept. This is the first step in global communication and connection. Everyone’s voice can be heard on the internet. The internet is not censored, and there are no real rules on the internet. It is a free for all for expression, whether on is in a third world country, or an affluent country, whether one agrees with the government’s policy’s or not.
The 9/11 World Trade Center attack and embassy bombings around the world are indicators that it is time for us, as a global community, to evolve to a higher level of consciousness and usher in a New Age. The main reason for the 9/11 disaster and other such events was our lack of global unity and the separativeness that is so predominant in this era.
As it is a syncretic sovement (Syncretism holds that all religions are essentially One), it will bring forth global integration and spiritual democracy. During the Taurean Age (4000 BCE), worship of the Golden Calf was common in the Middle East. During the Arian Age (circa 2000 BCE), the Jews indulged in widespread ritual sacrifice of sheep and other animals in the Temple. During the Picean Age (160 BC - 2000 ACE), many Jews walked away from animal sacrifice and embraced Christianity, symbolized by the fish.
A Paradigm Shift To Global Order?
Dr Thomas Kuhn in his book “Structure of Scientific Revolutions” defined a paradigm (pattern) thus: "Science is a series of peaceful interludes, punctuated by intellectually violent revolutions.” After such revolutions, one conceptual world view is replaced by another. The New World View is Monism (All is One), Holism (Reality is organically One) and Pantheism (The Universe is divine and earth is sacred). All regressive thinking and negative tendencies will fade away and enlightenment will dawn. The Aquarian Age will usher in a major shift in intellectual thinking, as it is the Shift of the Ages!
The World Plan has been in motion for centuries. A New World Order cannot happen overnight. Many people are becoming aware that something serious is going on and a World Plan to unite global currencies, trade boundaries and Nation States is in the process of happening. The principle of Global Economic Interdependence will unite all the economies of the world. There exists a benign and benevolent secret power behind the scenes whose aim is to control all the governments of the world and cause them to act benignly as well. This is a blessing for all of us, and it can be a relief that you know that you are not alone in your wishes for a peaceful and harmonious world.
Let us conclude this article with the Great Invocation, the World Prayer, which belongs to all humanity:
