"It is . . . the showing of a force that calls its complement. It is the energy of measure for measure, given and received."

Betty White and Stewart Edward White, The Betty Book, 1937


      The Perennial Tradition consists of a Treasure Trove of Immemorial Wisdom. Perennialist Teachers attain esoteric knowledge concerning how to assist selected students to earn discernment of Perennial Wisdom and entry into a Higher Life of communion with Advanced Beings.

      Access to and discernment of Perennialist Wisdom is not a right but a privilege earned by those who prove through appropriate, discerning action that they merit it, feel a deep respect and need for it, understanding that their present character contains flaws which must be transformed into one of greater worth.


  This essay will be of interest--and use--only to those persons who understand the value of the discernment of Perennial Wisdom and are eager to begin to earn discernment in the manner the essay makes possible.

  Specific Perennialist teachings will be presented within the essay for your study and contemplation. At the end of the essay, a test over its contents will be made available to you. The results of this specially designed test will make evident your understanding or lack of understanding of the essay's meaning. The results of the test will be emailed to you. If you desire to pursue further efforts to gain discernment of Perennial Wisdom, you can reply to that email.


Personal Worth


Nothing for Man Except What He Has Earned


   The superior experience and knowledge will be made available to a man or woman in exact accordance with his capacity and earning of it. Hence, if a donkey sees a melon he will eat its rind; ants will eat whatever they can get hold of; man will consume without knowing that he has consumed.

    Our objective is to achieve, by the understanding of the Origin, the Knowledge which comes through experience.

    This is done, as with a journey, only with those who already know the Way.

    The justice of this state is the greatest justice of all; because, while this knowledge cannot be withheld from him who deserves, it cannot be given to him who does not deserve it.

    It is the only substance with a discriminating faculty of its own, inherent justice.

Yusuf Hamadani, Perennialist Teacher


  Hamadani makes it clear that humans do not have a natural right to Higher experience and knowledge, that these must be earned. Discernment of Perennial Wisdom is made available to a person in exact accordance to his earning of it. Discernment of Perennial Wisdom cannot be withheld from persons who deserve it, and cannot be given to persons who do not deserve it. Perennial Wisdom is the only substance with a discriminating faculty of its own, able to determine if a person has earned it or not, and to what precise amount that person has earned it.


"You can be told no new knowledge. You can be told the words, but you will not understand them. Action is all of development. . . Any new knowledge must be acquired by experience, by action before it can be told, either by you to yourself or to you by someone else. . . You must first confront knowledge, become aware that it exists. Knowledge is something - a specific something. You cannot understand new knowledge if you have no experience of it, no active involvement with it. If you want to gain discernment of new knowledge, then you must act; and from the act and its result you attain knowledge."

Betty White, Gaelic Manuscripts, 1928


  Betty White suggests that we cannot understand new knowledge simply by being given the words of that new knowledge. She is saying that discernment of Perennial Wisdom requires experience of and involvement with this knowledge. She asserts that discernment of new knowledge requires that we become aware of it not merely in general, but in its specific detail. She says that if we want to gain discernment of new knowledge we must act in reference to it, and from this action we gain understanding.


Perennialist Wisdom Concerning the Terrestrial Domain

  Perennialist teachers also make available to the general public the hidden understanding of the terrestrial world and how discerning persons can save themselves in times of cultural cataclysm, when evil and ignorance appear to overwhelm the world. In eras of cultural destruction in all areas of human life, such as we are now experiencing, humankind's fate often seems hopeless. The low level of intelligence to which most American and world citizens have now devolved is revealed by the proliferation of mindless human savages who not only cannot understand themselves or what is happening in the world, but have lost even the desire to understand or struggle against those who are destroying them.

  From the beginning of human history, certain sub-humans have tyrannized over other humans, through physical force and through mental manipulation. The Perennial Tradition has made available to genuine humans 1 the Wisdom with which to comprehend their situation and how to overcome murderous tyrants who seek to destroy them. This Wisdom has been presented in the form of teachings, allegories, and images. We'll study these elements of Perennialist Wisdom, gaining awareness of our situation and how to overcome the tyranny which threatens our very existence.

  This allegory of Rousseau's explains how certain sub-humans ("the rich"), from the beginning of human history, have bamboozled the working poor into believing the phantasy of "constitutional democratic government," thereby tryannizing over workers.

"The rich man . . . devised plausible arguments to make them [his enemies, the working class] close with his design. 'Let us join,' said he, 'to guard the weak from oppression, to restrain the ambitious, and secure to every man the possession of what belongs to him: let us institute rules of justice and peace, to which all without exception may be obliged to conform; rules that may in some measure make amends for the caprices of fortune, by subjecting equally the powerful and the weak to the observance of reciprocal obligations. Let us, in a word, instead of turning our forces against ourselves, collect them in a supreme power which may govern us by wise laws, protect and defend all the members of the association, repulse their common enemies, and maintain eternal harmony among us."

Jean Jacques Rousseau, Discourse on Inequality, 1754


Specialized, Esoteric Knowledge

   Throughout the long centuries of human history, the Perennial Tradition has transmitted esoteric knowledge of the terrestrial and supersensible worlds to select persons who work assiduously to earn discernment of the knowledge. This Higher Knowledge contains hidden elements which transform these select persons into a new type of human. This esoteric knowledge is of the nature that a person may come into contact with it (see, read, or hear it), without comprehending its meaning; a person can apprehend this knowledge without being effected by it in the least. It appears to the person to be mere theories, perhaps misinformation, without any special meaning. Each individual, if they are to earn the discernment of this knowledge, must work assiduously to earn it.

   This specialized, esoteric understanding of terrestrial existence is presented by each Perennialist teacher during his or her era. The political-economic-social aspects of this understanding were first revealed by Plato (428- 348 B.C.E) in his Allegory of the Cave.

  The contemporary expression of the allegory of the cave is contained in the specialized, esoteric knowledge of the capitalist cabal and its destruction of all civilization. If a person is incapable of attaining (earning) discerning understanding of the truth of Plato's allegory of the cave and the truth of the current explication of the capitalist cabal, that person would have no chance of gaining sufficient understanding of themselves and their world to save themselves from annihilation.


"As men grow more civilized, and the subdivision of occupations and services is carried out, a complex mutual dependence becomes the universal rule. Every man, however solitary may seem his occupation, is a member of a vast industrial partnership, as large as the nation, as large as humanity. The necessity of mutual dependence should imply the duty and guarantee of mutual support; and that it did not in your day constituted the essential cruelty and unreason of your system."

Edward Bellamy, Looking Backward, 1888


The Perennial Wisdom


  Those among humankind who can understand the enduring importance of the higher knowledge and values embodied in such Forms as Commonwealth, must preserve this priceless heritage and assist humankind to return to the right path. These few (about 5%) will have to carry out cloaked operations to safeguard and disseminate the hidden wisdom. This essay constitutes a call to action in this regard, and will resonate with those who are willing to work to earn advanced powers of discernment.

  The Higher Realm has created the physical universe and has overseen the evolution of humankind. Even the worst destruction of civilizations cannot obliterate the wisdom which humankind has realized (understood and brought to manifestation) from the Higher Realm of eternal values and forms.

     There are always preservers and custodians of the hidden Perennial Wisdom. As humankind advances in terrestrial and spiritual understanding, realized savants make available "prescriptions" for personal transformation. Only those humans who prepare themselves through self-awareness and self-discipline are initiated into these Mysteries.


"Not through any one, or two, or even dozens of brilliant generations, but through age-long struggle has man attained the simple things of the spirit, what we call the homely virtues. The sacredness of a promise; the sense of moral obligation; common ordinary veracity; personal integrity; individual liberty; elementary justice. . . to mention only a few. And in the end--when all else in the world crashes about our lives--they are the things to which we turn; the things that count. The 'homely' virtues. Spiritual values."

Betty White, The Unobstructed Universe


   American and world citizens must now prepare for the likelihood that during their lifetime the world will be made to fall apart. When the cataclysm arrives, most of those who have not prepared will be utterly destroyed. Such utter cultural devastation has occurred numerous times during the earth's 4.54 billion year history.

  Overall, the direction of human evolution has been an upward helical path with each new cycle achieving a higher advance:

  • Savagery: a pre-cultural level marked by total absence of restraint; untamed and bestial

    Boticelli's painting of Athena overcoming the satyr--civilization triumphant over barbarism
  • Barbarism: a cultural level marked by violence and minimal restraint more complex than primitive savagery but less sophisticated than advanced civilization

  • The preservation and dissemination of the knowledge and values of civilized society by Perennialist savants

  • The re-awakening of the people to the knowledge and values of world culture through Perennialist teaching

  • Civilization: the level of human development characterized by civility (self-disciplined behavior), literacy (ability to read and understand what you read), appreciation for art, the rule of law not men, constitutionally guaranteed rights

  • Decadence: decline and decay of civilized factors, leading to the demise of the culture

  • Renaissance through re-infusion of the Perennial Tradition

Hidden Perennial Wisdom


   In 2017, the demonic capitalist cabal initiated two new global operations by putting a depraved thug into the U.S. presidency:
  1. Creating a new world-wide political-economic-social collapse

  2. Creating a new world war

"So rather than being a nationalist 'insurgency' against the corporate globalist 'Deep State', 2 the Trump regime represents a white nationalist coup by a disgruntled cross-section within the Deep State itself. Rather than coming into conflict with the Deep State, we are seeing a powerful military-corporate nexus within the American Deep State come to the fore. Trump, in this context, is a tool to re-organize and restructure the Deep State in reaction to what this faction believe to be an escalating crisis in the global Deep System."

Nafeez Ahmed, "How the Trump regime was
manufactured by a war inside the Deep State," popularresistance.org


Capitalists Creating a New World-Wide Political-Economic-Social Collapse

   You might think that collapsing the American and world culture would be counter-productive for the capitalist world rulers. But total cultural collapse and war are two of the most lucrative tactics for capitalists. Political-economic-social collapse never touches capitalists, immunized as they are by their obscene wealth. Cultural collapse only really affects the poor working class in all nations.

   The 2008 economic collapse, brought on by the capitalist con-job of offering poor and middle-class workers worthless, illegal sub-prime mortgages was directed only at the working class.

   When the criminal sub-prime mortgage scam by the capitalists blew up in their faces, the Bush II administration did the unthinkable: made the worker-victims pay for the failure of the capitalist enterprises that had perpetrated these crimes. Tax-money from the working class (capitalists pay no, or little taxes) was given to the capitalists as a bailout.

Imposing capitalism on nations (globalization) was "responsible for violently killing 12 to 15 million people since WW II and causing the death of hundreds of millions more as their economies were destroyed or those countries were denied the right to restructure to care for their people . . . That is the record of the Western imperial centers of capital from 1945 to 1990."

J. W. Smith, Economic Democracy, 2005


   The capitalist cabal traditionally puts persons chosen by the CFR faction 3 into the American Presidency and other top ruling positions, e.g. the British Prime Minister post, the German Chancellor post, etc.

    However, when the cabal wants to start a new world war (between European and Asian nations and the United States), as in the leadup to World Wars I and II, it puts into power in the combatant nations criminals selected by the gangster faction (e.g. Hitler, Stalin, Franco, Mussolini, Tojo, Truman, Nixon, Bush I, Clinton, Bush II, Trump). This is for the purpose of placing in power sub-humans who have no moral compass and bring destruction to the nation through their total criminality, mass murder, and megalomania.

   Each ruling group centered around the U.S. president that the capitalist cabal puts into power identifies its domestic and foreign "enemies," then puts into operation tactics to destroy these groupings.


    "The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I'm saying? We knew we couldn't make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did."

John Ehrlichman, Nixon's chief domestic policy advisor,
in a 1994 quote to writer Dan Baum


The Only Solution to Our Problems

    The only hope there is, therefore, is for the few people worldwide who work to earn discernment of Perennial Wisdom. As we've seen, this wisdom includes understanding of what's really going on in our present world and the necessity to create small groups and communities that will become the basis of a new commonwealth culture.

Hermes, Rumi, Francis of Assisi, Diotima, Boethius, Hypatia, Martin Luther King, Betty White, Stewart Edward White, Shakespeare, Socrates, Plato, Jesus, Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt


      Such destruction of cultures and civilizations has occurred before, and the ultimate victory is always won by progressive and positive persons and forces. Sooner or later, humankind re-awakens to its spiritual heritage--preserved by Perennialist sages 4 during the twilight periods of cultural decline, such as we are now experiencing.

    Building on the immortal wisdom of savants such as those depicted in the image above, a small group of knowledgeable persons is currently working to institute cooperative commonwealth communities. Their long-range strategy is to create successful small cooperative communities and gradually leaven the larger society, helping to raise the intellectual and spiritual level of people worldwide. As persons gain intellectual acuity, they can be included in cooperative communities which the cognoscenti create, spreading these new political-economic configurations over the entire world.

   This essay makes clear the personal and social necessity of working to earn discernment of Perennialist Wisdom. The only way humankind can save itself from the worldwide cataclysm now being perpetrated by demonic political-economic forces is to work to attain discernment and intellectual competence.

  "The idea of an integrated economic system co-ordinating the efforts of all for the common welfare, which is the basis of the modern state, is as old as philosophy. As a theory it dates back to Plato at least, and nobody knows how much further, for it is a conception of the most natural and obvious order. Not, however, until popular government had been made possible by the diffusion of intelligence was the world ripe for the realization of such a form of society. Until that time the idea, like the soul waiting for a fit incarnation, must remain without social embodiment. Selfish rulers thought of the masses only as instruments for their own aggrandizement, and if they had interested themselves in a more exact organization of industry it would only have been with a view of making that organization the means of a more complete tyranny. Not till the masses themselves became competent to rule was a serious agitation possible or desirable for an economic organization on a co-operative basis."

Notes:

1 We must distinguish genuine humans from sub-humans. The word "sub-human" has been used by various groups as a mindless term of rejection: the Nazis depicting other European peoples as sub-human; some cultures referring to women as sub-humans; Hindu society depicting untouchables as sub-human, and so on. I am using the term only in a descriptive manner, referring to certain people as sub-human who have lost the ability to think critically, who possess no desire to understand the truth, and who have no compassion for their fellow-humans. Since those and other qualities are essential in true humans, their absence from these people renders them sub-human.

2 In his book, Deep Politics and the Death of JFK (University of California Press, 1996), Professor Peter Dale Scott coined the term deep politics to designate the study of criminal and extra-legal practices linked to the state. He defined a deep political system or process as one in which institutional and non-institutional bodies, criminal syndicates, politicians, judges, media, corporations and leading government employees, resort to "decision-making and enforcement procedures outside as well as inside those sanctioned by law and society. What makes these supplementary procedures 'deep' is the fact that they are covert or suppressed, outside public awareness as well as outside sanctioned political processes."

3 The two factions of the global cabal are:

  1. The CFR-Trilateral Commission-Bilderberg faction
  2. The CIA-FBI-NSA criminal faction that carries out such operations as the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963

    There is nothing more absurd than Henry Kissinger, John McCain, the late Zbigniew Brzezinski, or a CFR Spokesperson--mandarins of the demonic cabal--pontificating on how the world ought to be run. The supposedly superior groups of foreign policy advisors--Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg group--are farcical in their presumption of knowledge and understanding. The "economic experts" within the cabal--Summers, Geithner, Volcker, Bernanke, etc.--have now been exposed by the 2008 economic crash as idiots who merely manipulate the "market" and have allowed rampant corruption to destroy the American and world economies.
