citizen of the world

"Obama" source: Alex Grey, Dalai Lama with EU Parliament Chef Poettering, source: EPOCH TIMES.

The Dalai Lama presented his speech in conjunction with the European Year of the Intercultural Dialogue event.
Other nation representatives who have addressed the EU during this event have been the Grand Mufti of Syria, Ahmad Bader Hassoun, UN Special Events Reporter Asma Jahangir, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomäus I, Jorge Sampaio, High Representative to the UN for the Alliance of Civilizations, Sir Jonathan Sacks, and the Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth".

This comes together with a lot of NEW AGE HOGWASH from Alex Grey, look how they use the code-words again:

""After hearing Barack Obama's speech in Berlin, and noting the degree of excitement and hope that he generated throughout many countries besides the US, I started to see him as one of the first true "world leaders." This may be partly because of his extraordinary childhood and political life that has bridged many cultures. Obama's restraint and intelligence, exhibited as foes were bating him throughout the campaign, his heartful clarity coming through in his talks are all qualities of a highly evolved person.

We need to consider our planetary citizenship, because solving the world's ecological and economic problems, and creating a culture of peace and reconciliation will require the co-operation of all nations.

Perhaps you can use this symbol of Barack Obama to send him a prayer of support, to send all the loving hopeful healing and creative energy that we can focus on him so that he can perform the task of leadership in the most effective and powerful way for the greatest good, for the greatest number." -- Alex Grey" LINK

Now please have a look at (Solanas friend) Strobe Talbotts interview with Spiegel on Obama!:

SPIEGEL: "Will Obama attempt to shift from an American identity to a global one?"

Talbott: "He has already begun to do so. In his speech in Berlin's Tiergarten, he called himself a citizen of the world. This was sentiment for which Socrates was put to death. In the United States, nobody gets put to death for saying that, but as a self-characterization, it certainly has a radioactive touch. "

Hi Farmer, I'm kinda getting sidetracked here and I know you've blogged about Alex Grey's 'visionary' art here previously BUT after looking at the artwork more closely on Grey's site there's one thing in particular that jumps out and bemuses me ... the 'V' white highlight on the sitter's adam apple. Are you aware of any relevance this might have as it seems to be artistically misplaced and irrelevant.

I don't personally like Grey's art as it has a very dead anatomical feel about it (understandable after reading his bio) however I do highly respect the technical skill the man displays.

This is new to me since I last visited the site - Alex Grey has opened a new art sanctuary.

http://www.alexgrey.com/

"The Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, CoSM, recently acquired a 40 acre interfaith retreat center as a permanent home.

Here artists will join together to build an oasis for spiritual, cultural, and social renewal.

People of all ages, colors and faiths from around the globe will enter into contemplative union with the artwork and with nature."

K,
It looks like a US version of the Italian Damanhur Grey is involved with..not underground of course.. He's "externalizing the hierarchy" to use Alice Bailey's terminology..

If you mouse over the landscape on his site their are the chakras and the star of David, the triangle with the all seeing eye, and perhaps a few other symbols that can be found for those familiar with these things.

By the way, Alex may have some technical dexterity but he admitted that tripping on acid was the real inspiration for his work originally. I wonder how many demonic portals you can open with LSD trips? I suspect many...

Hi Joyce, I had forgotten about Grey's Italian underground grotto! Yes, you are right.

I notice with his new 'temple' that it follows a fractal design.

He sure does/did(?) like to mess his brain up with LSD! Sadly when I was at art school there were a few fine art students who used to seek inspiration this way too!

I thank God that I am not drawn to his work - I find the works dead, lifeless, automaton, bondage type work devoid of any warmth, beauty, freedom and love. A sad and belittling outlook on humanity.

K,
Ah another artist on the blog..

He talks about his drug use somewhere on his website. It's scary to thing all of these "hippy types" from the 60s and 70s are now coming into their own and having so much impact on the culture...What was consider out there is becoming mainstream.

The work is very occult and gives me shivers down my spine when I look at it...

I think Damanhur would like to spread their teaching and philosophy all over the world. They seem to be pretty well connected...Gorbachev, Laszlo, Deepak Chopra..so maybe they'll succeed at making a bizarre "sustainable planet" at least until the Lord comes and puts them under His feet.

Bjorn,
Please go look at CC's new blog. I have some other posts on Kabbalah and HEB. I want you to see the connections...

I know your aware, but I've put some dots together for you. You have to go back and look at the previous blog at CC's after where I show the research on Kabbalah. There's a lot more to uncover here.
