Why So Much Occult Symbolism in Vanity Fair’s Video “How to Land a Hollywood Agent”?

The first thing we see in the video: the Vanity Code logo. It's an all-seeing eye inside a pyramid. Illuminati right there.

The magazine Vanity Fair created a series of short videos called Vanity Code, quick “how to” guides how to be a douchebag socialite – the “lifestyle” promoted by the magazine. The video entitled “How to Land a Hollywood Agent” humorously instructs small time writers how to become big time in Hollywood. While the humor somewhat caused me to expire air out of a my nose at some point, it is the blatant and flagrant symbolism that caused me to watch it again. Here’s the video.

"Inside view of the entertainment world" + occult symbolism = Get the message.

This the guy giving the instructions. He is dressed in full Masonic attire and around him are EVERY SINGLE Masonic symbol in existence. Left of him is the Masonic square and compass, right of him are the Masonic G with all seeing eye and a skull. In front of him is the seal of Solomon and the pyramid with all seeing eye.

Why is this guy giving advice on Hollywood made to be the most hardcore Freemason ever? Is it a subtle way of hinting at how to REALLY make it in Hollywood?

In another video, the guy gives advice on how to behave in “Eye Wide Shut”-style swingers party.

It is hip to be an occult elite wannabee.

The guy that is receiving the advice is wearing a red devil mask. Weird.
The viewers (you) is represented by the guy wearing a red devil mask. Weird.

Owned by Condé Nast, the mega-corporation that also owns the Illuminati-symbolism-laden Vogue magazine, Vanity Fair subtly yet blatantly telling you who runs the show. As usual, all of that symbolism will swoosh about ten miles above most people’s heads.

Another big thing is Hollywood making men do drag. And who is Americas most beloved actor? Tom Hanks who did a whole tv series dressed in drag. Tyler Perry notice how big he's become since T.V. ing. I guess tv stands for trans vestite.

Wow!…That's like in yo face!!! The masses don't even have a clue. And this is why I've stopped watching television and listening to the radio. I refuse to be programmed from the invisible powers that be. #SadFace 🙁

I'm only 23 years old and I've also come to this state of thinking, and I've been consicously active in doing my part to make the world a better place, and I feel like everyone else should too. Is it really worth it to call it quits and say "Oh the world is a horrible place, the end is near, pray for your sins and await Jesus to take our souls to heaven." ? This is our only home after all, and we only get one life. I'm not saying "YOLO" but I just want to circulate the thought that maybe we should be more proactive in unite each other and just spreading love. Which is what the practice of meditation and yoga (more so meditation) has taught me. I hope to hear your thoughts on this subject. And I figure this would be a good way of introducing myself… Read more »

This is so over the top I can’t tell if it’s really genuine. How much does the average Vanity Fair reader know about Illuminati/freemasonry/conspiracy theories? I mean, do people know enough about these subjects that it could possibly be seen as a joke poking fun at conspiracies, or is the average reader of this magazine completely oblivious to these things?

Then again, this symbolism is so pervasive it cannot possibly be explained as being all just cracking fun at tin-foilers. So, this is real.

Somebody please disprove me – I don’t want to believe what I’m seeing…

I think that the wealthy ruling Elitists are not much interested in the occult symbolism on the dollar, yet they are VERY interested in the purchasing power of the dollar.

Just remember……EVERY SINGLE thing in a commercial, or whatever is put there on purpose (unless it is someone extra standing where they not supposed to be) so everytime (especially in animated things) you see something and you think 'oh that is just coincidence, or maybe it was just filler." umm…..no think again!

*****************************Idk if anyone caught that……he says "w***e presents" instead of "who represents" which is how is appears lower in the screen.!

I can't even close my mouth … :O

It might be more simple. They are picking up on you. It's a new market.

hahaha @ the four people , the one with the black "batman hat" has his hand down his pants and is touching the lady next to him, the lady next to him is touching the other man's ass and his chest, the man has his hands kinda in the crotch area of the lady (in the red dress) next to him and the lady in the red dress is touching him…they are basically having a full on orgy (cartoon style) in front of our face.

Note the ADDERALL packet and pills on the newbie screenwriter's desk too!!!!!

So sublte, but it's there – disgusting

Fast foward to this past May, I moved out, I left my boyfriend and, I just started dating my best friend who has been really supportive throughout my journey in life thus far. I am pretty much happier than I've ever been in my life. My question goes out to all of you basiclly bashing this practice, Am I doing any wrong here? Am I seriously practicing a ritual that summons demons or whatever? Please send me links and educate me on this new shed of light. Because I can't seems to find any concrete evidence or ties to this sentiment that is being stated by a number of you. I am pretty curious and would love to know.

What the frag is that s**t!?

How about the suggested Vanity Code video "How to cheat on your wife." after this one is over.

They may recognize it, but doesn't mean they understand the agenda.

ah Melly, exactly my point

Christians out there, I have started a Twitter to help raise awareness of the truth. Please check it out and follow if you can! God bless that we help renew the mind of those are lost in the world. https://twitter.com/KingdomForGod

augh excuse my spelling errors I hope you got the jist of it.

Also, a few more questions: Do any of you believe that science and religion can be tied? And what is your opinion on raising your conciousness to a higher level of thinking and the like? Is that evil to you?

I read somewhere that there is a theory of our mind and souls being interconnected in a manner that is much more concious than today's society and culture is lead to believe. And right now, were are at a point in time where we as human beings have never been more disconnected, there is so much hate, greed, so much judgement, so much segregation that it is literally inhibiting our growth as a species. We are killing each other and out home, which is earth because of all this. And before we know it, it's gonna get too late to do anything about it.

I was once this lost person, trying to find my piece of mind. Specificlly from really traumatic events that happened to me in my life, alot of which are parallel to programing refrenced hereon this site. About a year ago, I began to take up yoga and meditation as a way of dealing with my abusive boyfriend when he wasn't home. It was literally my haven from my life. Keep in mind I am still a religious person. I wasn't raised as a Christian, I was raised a Roman Catholic, but that hardly says much about who I am a person. I don't actually know if I believe or adhrere to a specific type of religion, but I am quite knoweldgeable and feel like there is a lump of truth to everything thrown out there to us. Bear with me now, this is no literal attack on anyone's religion, the… Read more »

You guys, I do yoga regularly. And I meditate. I am completely confused, is this really bad or something? I have never taken a class. Anything I have done was mostly self taught or from watching videos online. Ever since I introduced this form of excerise and that practice, I have found myself more in tune with the environment, myself, and I am able to better communicate with the people all around me.

The screen writer in the cartoon has a bottle of Adderall next to his computer. The streets on the map are called anorexia blvd. and coke way.

This reminds me of the New Yorker "Talk of the Town" with a winking owl symbol (also owned by Conde Nast) http://www.digitalmediatree.com/library/image/88/… . Talk of the town basically covers current events in an extremely "liberal" or "progressive" or "yuppie" way. Lots of snobby sounding talk about how privacy is "dead," gun control is something we urgently need to instate, pro gay marriage, etc. I like the magazine and articles, but this section of the magazine, particularly the very first "blurb" in the list, always seems to be really, really biased and swaying to what Illuminati supposedly is promoting (but since New Yorker readers are usually intelligent and educated, they promote this stuff in articulate, intelligent "opinion pieces").

soldierj · 2 days ago Amaryllis- You have it all wrong my friend, study the truth, philosophy, zen buddhism, the real bible, pick up a lovely book called " A course in miracles"- the truth is the third eye, the inner self, YOU, , that is GOD, you were created in his image, the true inner self is the white light of the holy spirit, and dont you see every single thing in this physical world is designed by satan to distract and shut your third eye from your truth? They want you to be afraid to meditate, they put flouride in your water to calcify your third eye, they program the masses to be so mushed out and brain dead and distracted from our true reality as God's creatures that if everyone actually woke up spiritually, used and cleansed the third eye, wed all pretty much be in heaven.… Read more »

I am not able to express it better!

get a life instead of another eye

Actually the video is promoting, "how to be an MK lab rat" since all they're going to do is "use" you for their own dark "purposes" anyways.

Yea. There's no point it's become blatant. The Zionist satanists in charge of Hollywood don't care to hide anymore.
Ps that " blurred lines" video with the naked models also like these parties. Even in government they throw private parties and hire naked servers. It's demeaning and its entertainment in a disturbing way.

A cop car that said police on it was another one and a broken heart with a face crying on each half of the heart was another one. One was a jewish star. _All I want to say is what the f**k is going on here and how have no parents noticed this? What the f**k is the NY Dept of ED having schools decorate with? If they think this is some tribute to 911, first of all there were no towers or 911 written anywhere. this was clearly mind-control and abuse symbolism besides the scroll.

Might be some over-active-would-be-mason? Trying to nicely do artistic thingies with coworkers to brighten up the school, while certainly knowing that the ones who regonize it's symbolic value, are the ones with the power. (money, jobs, funding) If i were a concerned parent i would make a point of it during meetings and suggest re-muralling the whole place 🙂

don't know where to post this but I went to a school as company to someone who voted (I for one no longer vote) and as I waited in the cafeteria of this public school I am very disturbed to be saying what I just saw.._a cluster of drawings on the wall which I hope to G-d were not made from kids but I am thinking the board of ed sent this creepy mural-ish drawings there. There was a drawing on each of several letter-sized papers clustered together. First of all, 2 of them were big black penises. One had "fbi" written across it and one looked like it was sleeping. 2 were American flags that looked like a 5 year old drew them which is fine. But then1 was a woman who seemed to be on a wall with someone holding a candle next to her flat surface to… Read more »

Should have taken a picture with your phone.

yoga is def spiritual and opening of the soul to the devil just like hypnosis, for those who are really into it and not just for exercise. and I have noticed in my own family circle the great selfishness and self absorption of people who are really into yoga. a higher level of self- attainment is most def comparable to so called modern satanists who are about the power of man and that every man is godly. This may sound like a far fetched comparison but some yogis really don't realize the nature of what they are doing.

true dat. despite them saying how "open-minded" they are, they end up being the most judgemental hypocrites!! i can't tell you how many times during yoga teacher training, the other students would harass me about my meat-eating (i'm anemic), caffeine consumption, moderate alcohol drinking, church-attending, and gun-toting. you should hear how robotic they become when they chant stuff like "ong namo guru dev namo." creepshow!

It all depends on who you're talking about… it's very bad to make sweeping generalizations about people. Aren't sweeping generalizations, and the divide and conquer attitude, exactly what the elites are doing to society? Not all people who practice yoga are super liberal yuppies. A lot of them just care about maintaining good health. I practice yoga for the health benefits, especially mental health. I read the Bible and try to practice what Jesus taught. Practicing what Jesus taught is not always easy, and it takes sound health and a sound mind to really go out there and show compassion to others and love unconditionally. Yoga and meditation help me be a better Christian. There is no doctrine to yoga that tells you how to act or think, it simply puts you in better control of your mind and body so that you can go out in to the world… Read more »
I practice yoga because my weight has a tendency to balloon with it and I hate hardcore work outs. I've been doing it for five years, ever since I was 16 and I look pretty dang nice. I think that's a broad generalization. I am pretty sure I am not possessed by satan himself you know. I think the higher people who practice yoga at the top are demonic, not the girl who saw a yoga mat at target and decided she could go lose 5 pounds. Geez, that's a huge rude generalization, I could say the same about video gamers. Plus the yoga thing is a stereotype by Hollywood and I think there must be a story to it they are trying to hide. Apparently they scared lots of people from yoga lol. It actually relaxes you and you can do some inner thinking, like on how not to… Read more »

actually I found another vanity fair episode and it also had the same man with the same freemason symbols showing that the series itself and that man are all a freemasonic message.

You think media is capitalizing off the illuminati fad, at this point? Seems like it's becoming an endorsement for legitimacy. After all, a lot of people actually do recognize the common symbols (I.e. all seeing eye)

did you see the james franco roast? they said who is in charge of us all, and the said, 'the president of hollywood' like from tom and jerry he was dressed up as jerry sandusky too

status update : I just love this one. The comment that is.

Huh?

If there is so much power already tied down in this whole NWO scheme, why would they need a stunt like Miley Cyrus VMAs to distract us from Syria and Fukishima?

Because unfortunately, many people enjoy being distracted than worry about the horrors of the real world

they're recruiting……. hollywood stalkers!

They can recruit C Stodden lol. Or they can attach her to a spaceship and let her make circles around planet earth.

Maybe we're supposed to be diverted by the blatant /overt masonic symbolism while the real danger stays covert. You never know. Could also be a well orchestrated blame game. magicians distract us by keeping our attention focused on one thing while using sleight of hand to hide what they're really up to.

Not a bad idea. Reading your post, the term "casting couch" popped into my head.

Has the format of this website changed, or is it just me?

i thought the format changed too. but i left the website and came back to it and now its norman again. Weird.

Oh it's back to normal again 🙂 Weirddddd 🙂

Yes, I noticed the change earlier this year. The old format had each of our answers numbered, whereas the new format lets us give each other a thumbs up!

Not that I'm aware of. On my machine it looks the same as it always has. Maybe I'm not understanding what you wrote. 😛

Have you seen the movie " Now You See Me?" I just watched it the other night on cable. Despite its strong cast the screenplay is weak but that is all beside the point. It is practically an HOMAGE to the Occult. I mean its just ridiculous. Repleat with the Eye Of Horus, A GPS closup that has a street intersection looking like an upside down satanic cross and get this? The heros are THE FOUR HORSEMEN. Ugh. Its nutz.

And as far as I can tell the moral of the entire story is Do WHat Thy WIll. Basically relax and enjoy the immorality.

Very weird. I'd love to know your take on it.

Thanks

I haven't seen it, but I've just read the synopsis from Wikipedia. You aren't kidding. It seems as though the "feel good" plot of stealing money from the rich and giving to the poor goes along way to draw attention away from all the symbolism. I'm interested in what VC would say, too.

Um, it looks like I may not be checking in for a while, it seems. Keep up the good work Vig!

The other commentors bashed me horribly for my opinion on Ke$ha last week. I know how you feel!

Look guys, I am sorry if I have offended anyone regarding my comments on yoga and the rest. Fact is, I may have come across as sounding judgmental and dogmatic but infact, I am not like that at all and I judge no-one, I have never felt comfortable with organized religion, I am not a religious nut and a great many of the people I have ever grown to love have been lost to illuminati and masonic beliefs and practices… but I still love them and take a thorough look at their beliefs when they ask me to do this and I am most appreciative of their desire to advance my knowledge and gain my confidence. I am sorry to one person in particular whom I really admire a great deal and who came on here upon my recent recommendation and left feeling unwelcome and discouraged because of certain attitudes.… Read more »

No harm, no foul. I suggest that those folks that deny that hard-core spiritual Yoga is a one way road to the demonic harassment have "scales" on their eyes (Acts 9:1-19). Those scales cannot be removed by anyone other than Jesus Christ, Himself.

That being said, it's MY OPINION, after years of research, that genuine, full-blown demonic possession is exceedingly rare. Most of what we experience in others is the first stage of demonic possession, oppression, and the 2nd stage, infestation.

I have no doubt that our Rissa, who posted below, encountered a person in the throes of REAL demonic possession.

Sorry, I meant to say that Rissa posted ABOVE, lol

More than one! I assure you. During our lunchbreaks in the yoga teacher training, I would ride with some students to Whole Foods. My Christianity came up and several of them immediately would become agitated and declare themselves atheists or gnostics. The scariest thing is that the loud-mouth atheist woman in our group is a public school teacher at a county high school who teaches…you guessed it! RELIGION. I read her online syllabus and it propagates mainly hinduism, taoism, buddhism, and wiccan. There was only one week devoted to Christianity. And this same vile woman is the leader of the yoga club at the school. Talk about brainwashing the kids early!!

Little wonder. Yoga is absolutely crucial part of the whole occult indoctrination of the Western world.Job is almost complete. Lucky you to get out of the snakepit on time with useful lessons learned and eyes wide open.

I'm going to keep this simple b/c I comment on yoga all the time:____I'm a Christian and I stupidly went through 6 months of yoga teacher training last year with the hopes of teaching classes to supplement my income. Basically, I like to exercise, ashtanga yoga can be fun, and it helped me to shed my baby weight post-partum. ____Boy was I wrong!! I went through this crazy, topsyturvy teacher training called Birmingham Yoga with this like, false-prophetesque leader who still gives me nightmares. I'm all about stretching before and after a workout, but jeez! This guy was whacked out. I've since distanced myself from the 13 (yes, 13) other students in the class. I have since found faith and become heavily involved in my church (Thank God!). But not everyone can easily distinguish between this kundalini-satanic-inducing cult as I did. No pago-weird chants for this Christian gal. ____My underlying… Read more »

Maybe work out to your favorite Christian music? That would REALLY make any lingering demons turn themselves inside-out with anger! LOL

My first post on this site. Forgive me if i didn't read all the comments on this post but there were so many and i just don't have the time at this time. Although i don't disagree with the writer's premise i would encourage the writer to still find and talk to the artist who created the illustrations for the Vanity Fair piece before the writer get's the full lay of the land. Sometimes illustrators, like myself, are agents of good letting folks know which way the wind blows, just like writers of good minds. This isn't a negative review, it's a call to ask for the artist who made the art to inform the conversation.

Artists don't get approval to submit their work for a major publication without someone ok'ing it. So Vanity Fair DID sanction this piece.

vampire lestadt. club le vampire. very trendy. till closing time.

… I assumed readers were educated by far, understanding the meaning behind the matter. The videos are the truth disguised as an Illuminati mockery, "hidden in plain sight," bullshit. Rather, it is a joke on you.

If you are a commercial artist you understand quite well that everything in those videos is well thought out prior to execution. Please. The "artists" (yes, I'm using this term very loosely) who produce them are under heavy instruction and guidance. How else would the Creative Directors, Art Directors, Editors, etc. justify their existence if they just handed out projects and let the artists turn in anything they wanted? It's not up to the bean counters. They just count the beans. There are may other highly paid people involved in a process like this series of videos making many, many decisions about the content. There isn't a lot of creative liberty given and if you are engaged in this kind of work, you know this. Please. Commercial artists as subversives. Give me a break. Commercial artists are part of the problem. If they'd stop lending their talents to such drivel… Read more »

Yeah, I doubt they lose much sleep over the spiritual dilemma they are instrumental in creating. They KNOW that if they were so bothered they could quit as there are loads of others waiting in the wings to take their place. They stay in it for the MONEy, same as the MK puppet singers. They don't need to be in on the agenda, just get them worshiping the $$ and the rest looks after itself.

That medium for example has deccenia of experience with the symbolism and the uses of it, aesthetically and generating. So i think one could rule out naivity. But i too would like more information by the artist (and some of other subjects onthis site by the way). Very good idea.

Vanity Fair sancitoned this "art". They wouldn't have approved it if they didn't approve of it.

Outstanding post–a take on all this crap I'd never even considered! Let's hear it for the artists!

Well, I'm afraid that Freemasonary was not built on solid enough ground in the first place and if any of them were well-meaning, they can't just claim back the movement as it belongs to another agenda now. they should rebrand as something else and watch out for hiijackers next time round. I have to say, I was brought up around God-acknowledging (though I would never say believing) freemasons (never knew at the time) and they are generally dispassionate, dead-eyed folk despite shows of generosity and loyalty to their communities. I never did see any great nobility or chivalry shining through or any strong intuitive capacity or emotional intelligence or near-palpable compassion. But my experience of life is limited, so maybe that perspective is flawed somewhat as I'm sure someone will soon come along and point out.

In as much as this is all for public consumption, I think this is really about the Satanic Zionists who have successfully infiltrated, and now control the entire Freemason culture. They are thumbing their noses at the Freemasons; letting them all know that they have been duped, corrupted, taken-over. Many Freemason who are lower down are not completely aware but the Satanic Zionists (who control media, radio, music, fashion, magazines, sports, film, etc.) are now letting everyone know who's in charge.

Let's recall Protocol No. 15 – Secret Societies. This is how they are letting the Freemasons know – they are insulting them by using their sacred symbols and rituals, etc. They have infiltrated and destroyed the Freemasons.

Freemasons need to wake up and put an end to this.

Freemasonry was and is nothing more but a satanic cult. For them to wake up is to die from the hand of their fellows. I am talking about 30+ levels not duped lazy ones.

Interesting that VC mentioned Conde Nast, which is a magazine publisher and a subsidiary/division of Advance Publications, which is owned by Samuel Irving Newhouse Sr./Jr. and Donald Newhouse who are guess what?………None other than Jewish. Do any of you even realize how many newspapers, magazines, journals this company owns? Its crazy man. Oh and that is a factual comment not a racist comment so anyone who says otherwise…..Bring.It.On.

Also Anna Wintour (Editor-in-Chief of American Vogue) cancelled Miley's Vogue cover because of THAT VMA performance, Ha ha ha!

Might be just spin. Maybe they had the 2nd cover sorted out on forehand? In publicity, the whole bunch eats out of the same trough – as in pigs, yes 😉

Gawwd, Here we go again, Its just the same ole, same ole, same ole etc etc etc………They (The Elite) are letting us know once again who controls the behind the scenes….& Hollywood Agent? more like Hollywood Pimp!…..Thanks VC btw.

I don't know what was more annoying…listening to him talk about nothing or all the blatant symbolism. Very frightening and obnoxious all at the same time.

The Vanity Code logo has some remarkable similarities with the logo of the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI).

coz they are all being runned by the elites

So i read in the comments above about "YOGA" and stuff.. Can someone explain or tell me what's so wrong about yoga?? I don't see anything wrong about it other than a way of relaxation… Thanks.

Thanks Anony, I appreciate knowing about your moslem perspective on the matter. I know a lot about Gnostic Islam and I would be unlikely to consider mainstream moslem thinking but your contribution is appreciated

Yesterday, a New York practitioner of yoga admitted that twerking is a form of yoga and goes back much, much further than people believe. So we've come round full circle.

In many cases yoga leads to demonic possession. Do not ask how we got to the point that christian churches are the ones who aggressively propagate yoga. At least on West Coast..

Who is propagating this ignorance? Yoga opens you to demonic possession? give me a f*****g break.

Sounds like I hit the target…

Demonic possession is not Hollywood-style prancing about with red eyes in a frenzied state. It usually happen insidiously – spending more time buying into the dumbed-down agenda, increasing reliance on self (when things come crashing down, of course, self-blame, self-harm and self-loathing follow as you cannot make those smart-a strategies work for you anymore). Impermeability to God and what is good in life. If that happens to you, it is the people of God who will reach out to you to help you. Those like yourself might advocate a quack therapy, drinking, ADs , drugs, more expensive self-discovery, who knows? Occasionally, I have reached out to people that were on the verge of complete self-destruction and through God's grace, helped to build them up again and sent them on their way without taking back or asking for anything in return. Due to my damaged faith system imposed upon me in… Read more »

Wake up – I can help you too.

You said it – my 70 year old uncle has become an over-enthusiastic devotee and he still counts himself as a religious man.

We all are very religious. Even atheism and hedonism are sort of religions. Unless an individual has ongoing mental problems he has something to hold on. As for dark ones it is strong religion with strong beliefs system. Yoga makes me wonder much more than any occult symbolism do.

At first it may seem relaxing and have enormous health benefits. Eventually, depending on the motives of the teacher running the class and what type of Yoga is being practised, this will more than reverse. It is a form of meditation and sitting on a mat making the 3 6 sign repeating mantras over and over is basically a way of opening up your third eye and offering your body up for possession. I loved yoga and I still feel that it is possible to hack out a dozen positions and all the mumbo-jumbo but what is left is pilates, basically. The only reason one would prefer Yoga is the spiritualist aspects of it and the apparent comfort derived from that and that is at the root of the problem. It disconnects us from God and draws us towards self which is intrinsically Luciferian. By allowing this to happen for… Read more »

Wow… that's a load of nonsense. If anything Yoga reconnects one with themselves and God.

yoga makes me think of yogurt. your better off doing stretches and light running/workout then doing 'yoga'

''..and draws us towards self which is intrinsically Luciferian..'' Who told you that? I think connecting with one's self is the best thing there is. Big pharma and media is paying big money to draw us AWAY from ourselves…. Ofcourse, one should be honest to oneself and that is very scary for a lot of people, including religious folks, is my experience. So focussing on mankind as an abstract combination of people is easier. Especially when they believe in common things. But, remember, the one who you see in your mirror is you ..it is really you, body and mind.

Yes but mastery of self does not lead to anything greater, it is a self-indulgent exercise which creates no synergy and does not improve our spiritual worth at all. It cuts us off from the ignorant who cannot arrive at the same level of self-understanding for whatever reason, and makes us want to band with others who are self-absorbed and self-discovered. It creates a very selfish, uninspiring type of secret club.

Amaryllis- You have it all wrong my friend, study the truth, philosophy, zen buddhism, the real bible, pick up a lovely book called " A course in miracles"- the truth is the third eye, the inner self, YOU, , that is GOD, you were created in his image, the true inner self is the white light of the holy spirit, and dont you see every single thing in this physical world is designed by satan to distract and shut your third eye from your truth?

Its really that simple actually.… Read more »

She's not wrong. All the misery and pain is this world is simply due to humanity's rejection of our Creator.

Try as you might with a million yoga positions or philosophies or silly books like "A Course in Miracles" (which you should look into as the people who wrote it claim it was "channeled" to them by Jesus. Jeez…) to compare them to the Holy Bible and you will fail.

God created you, but is not pantheistic. You sound a lot like Shirley McClain. Maybe that's who you are.

Lol, actually far from Shirley McClain, more like a very well educated adult who has spent years studying philosophy, multiple versions of the Holy Bible, and attended a religious school for many years whilst also being raised Christian. You are saying the same thing as me however yours is ruled in fear, right where satan wants it to be, where you can do nothing about it. Mine is ruled in truth, the way God intended and only a few are capable of waking up to. Want to know how ? I don't watch TV, I dont listen to the radio, I eat extremely healthy, I pray, I read, I meditate…I have cleared my mind of all nonsense, other than occasional visits to VC. Have you read a course in miracles? If you have read it , even a single page of it, there would be no way for you to… Read more »

You might consider checking out the Right Use of Will series by Ceanne deRohan….it'd be right up your alley (divinely inspired material).

I am so not agreeing with you. But that's okay. To master one's self does not automatically lead to self-indulgency or selfish people. I think it might lead to strong people, who can help themselves when in trouble, AND can help others as well. Why do you take it on the negative side, by the way?

You may not agree or like what I have to say because I assume you guys are Christian and this is coming from a Muslim – but I agree with @amaryllis particularly in that yoga is drawing us towards ourselves and away from God. While not being into yoga per say, I have some exposure to Buddhist meditation rites and to meditation in Islam for the purpose of "Tazkiyah", (i.e. purification of the soul). I completely agree that God-less yoga is self-indulgent, and ends up drowning yourself into your "self". The difference is that Islamic meditation is about focusing on GOD. It's not about being dishonest to oneself or "afraid" of anything (and I fail to see why non-religious types always assume that religious folks' disagreement stems from some kind of "fear" or insecurity). But it's about what you allow yourself to drown into. Islamically, you cannot "know" yourself without… Read more »

I must add that knowing ourselves better than before is not merely about knowing our littleness, but also that whatever goodnesses we have are also gifts from God and are not of our own doing, and this is turn creates a humbleness and gratitude and feeling of being blessed, and a sense of responsibility towards using our blessings in the best ways. Thankfulness. Peace. So much positivity. Which I really don't think can compare to the self-aggrandizement of yoga.

Again, the focus seems to be – do not focus on your own strengths and possibilities, but on god. Why the rejection of individual qualities and the mainlining headlines about abstract creator(s) ?
In my experience, that is a tactic used by repressors, religious and non-religious. No offence meant, but i see it as a result of brainwashing too.

I added the second reply to address exactly this: "knowing ourselves better than before is not merely about knowing our littleness, but also that whatever ***goodnesses*** we have are also gifts from God and are not of our own doing, and this is turn creates a humbleness and gratitude and feeling of being blessed, and a sense of ***responsibility towards using our blessings in the best ways***." You are absolutely *not* rejecting your strengths. You are fully recognizing them, just in their right context and not in a way that can break away into arrogance and self-worship, which in turn creates an attitude of entitlement and "me-first". And is one of the greatest virtues of humanity not altruism, sacrificing for others, loving and preferring others over oneself? When we focus on God Who is the Source of all love, then we cultivate love and humility – the greatest of human… Read more »
I should probably clarify one more thing (this coming from an Islamic perspective): Humans are created to be lovers, by design. And the greatest love comes from God, the Creator of love, and He created us precisely for love, in love. By focusing on God we aren't becoming brainwashed brainless zombies. We are simply remembering Him, loving Him. And He has promised us His Eternal love back, if we live on earth via His designs (i.e. in accordance with nature, and establishing justice, and according to the covenant of life on earth which we took by our own choice). There is no motivation in the human experience greater than love, which is not just the most powerful emotion in existence, but the one that most easily pushes oneself to sacrifice oneself for others. When in love with someone, we naturally want to do whatever we know their pleasure is in.… Read more »

You sure need a lot of words to make your point. Very distracting to me, i am sorry. I get the feeling there are discrepancies in it, but can not name them. Anyway, i was not talking just about love and understanding oneself (or when religious – god). I was talking of coping with life as a human being. Discovering one's talents and strengths, dealing with surviving – not during a crisis, but daily. And the ways to make a living could contribute to ''society'', or your hobby could, or a sideproduct could. Trying to make the best of it does not lead to an extraction of kapitalism by default, in short.

Sorry for the wordiness – I tend to have a problem putting things concisely. Hopefully this will make sense: If we break out of our finite, mortal, limited selves, and rely on God, we have far more possibilities and an infinite Source of love and strength and energy to draw from, which refreshes us and helps improves the rest of our practical lives. We realize our greatness not through our own little selves but through God, because He's the One created us and is the Source of our continued existence, and the greatness that we realize through Him is one without arrogance. There is no dichotomy in Islam between the daily/practical sphere of life and the spiritual side. That's what Islam's daily prayers about – focusing on God and reminding ourselves of the bigger picture throughout the day, helping us cope at all times, communicating directly with God, never losing… Read more »

Maybe not in all people. But certainly in some people.

Thanks, i think i now understand it a little better. I still do not agree with most, but i see your good intentions behind it more clearly. I have different experiences though. I have been in countries with a mixed society, secular and muslim. And i found that the mandatory praying for example had both the effects you seem to describe above, but also – it had a compulsary side of it. At the most peculiar times people were to break up their lives and what they were doing (living it), and were to pray. (The muezzins use a verrrrry loud installation.) The muslims that did not were affraid to show and tell, because their community would judge them and give less bussiness to them. That is not natural way of living to me, and certainly bullheading on my believing in the good of the habit/rule. To me that is… Read more »
I'm glad the explanation made more sense this time!. As for today's Muslims, most people today are just zombies, honestly. The majority of us neither know the language we're praying in, nor do our educational systems include meaningful teachings about them, nor do we care. The materialist rat-race of life and global consumerist mentality has given spirituality a backseat, so those who're swayed away by it only fulfill prayers as a mechanical obligation, or just for show. This is obviously not good. Ideally, the Islamic way of life revolves around focusing on God and our purpose on earth – to establish goodness, where worldly affairs are to be conducted in accordance with goodness as prescribed by God. Therefore depending on which worldview you believe in, the daily prayers can either appear to be distractions, or they can appear to be the highlight of a person's day – the landmarks that… Read more »

What's missing in most Muslims' lives is an understanding of Islam. We're barely taught anything more than the five pillars – and even those pillars, we barely know anything about their meaning, we're just familiar with a superficial crude understanding of the basic external movements. Their purpose is lost to us, and few people are bothered to learn or teach it any more. (Random lament here. I guess this is off-topic).

Well I am troubled by the absence of acknowledgement that it is God's help alone that removes afflictions and makes us strong rather than our own clever strategies. It is the only thing that has helped me.

If God had intended for all of us to have three eyes open, we would have been created with three eyes rather than two. I am afraid that the third eye you are attempting to open is the eye of Horus that keisha is quite keen on, apparently. It is not bringing you closer to God but to Satan and his vast sub ranks. No self-respecting person of faith could do the whole Om and sun-worshipping thing witho0ut rolling up their mat and quitting. The whole concept of repetitive chanting is also demonic in it's very nature. God created man intelligent enough not to have to repeat the same thing a hundred times over with the whole purpose of invoking an altered, transcendental state by the end of it. It is DIY MK. A lot of meditation is the same. Faith is a lucid and inclusive thing – it is… Read more »

This is ignorance. To create fear of the knowledge of self is a form of control. Meditation is deprogramming and deconditioning. You have been made fearful by those who would control you.

Well I am troubled by the absence of acknowledgement that it is God's help alone that removes afflictions and makes us strong rather than our own clever strategies. It is the only thing that will save us.
I am only under the control of God and happy to acknowledge my own shortcomings as a human being in terms of mapping out my own life. You speak with the confidence of someone who has not yet experienced great trials and tribulations or else was helped by God but refused to show gratitude. Perhaps you will still have a chance to redeem yourself.

Moreover, every single secret society type/Masonic/Luciferian belief system I have ever come across relies on meditation as a means of keeping it's devotees brainwashed. The monotheistic faiths, in their uncorrupted state (increasingly hard to find) , do not and prayer to God is enough to bring about those benefits in a wholesome way.

Theres nothing wrong about it. Opening third eye is means opening the eye of.your soul. Remember, the Bible was rewritten and translated from so many languages and its meaning is coded. Just open your minds people, you have your own head on shoulders, dont believe everything you read, I think you should have already learned that or youre no differen than those who read thesemags and watch mainstream news. the God is only one in the end.

I don't read magazines anyway. I don't buy or read any type of magazine. Its a waste of money and paper. Especially trashy magazines, gossip mags or fashion mags. There's nothing of real value in their & no morals/values. They always promote rubbish. The illuminati can do whatever it wants & they may come out as the temporary winners, but they won't be the winners forever & they definitely will be overthrown at some point. Thats when every single one of them will lose more than what they worked for. So really I pity them, becahse they're not as enlightened as they think they are. They're omgoing to lose eventually and when they do, s***s gonna go bad for them.

On a sidenote, Aleister Crowley was a regular contributor to Vanity Fair back in the early 1900's.

No side-note, rather straight to the point!
