USA: Keeping Away From Hatred

Looking at the U.S.A. With Respect:


Carlos Cardoso Aveline


Dear friends,

Before we all get too enthusiastic about criticizing the USA, we should consider that worldwide organized hatred uses to have at least two poles.

Since the end of the Cold War, a new polarization of international and inter-cultural hostilities opposes Western culture and Muslim world.

I do not want to deny here any of the Western mistakes. I acknowledge that they are very clearly described in a text which many consider of great importance, signed by “A Turkish Effendi” and published by H. P. Blavatsky in “The Theosophist”, March 1880. (1)

Yet another text, even more important and by H.P.B. herself, shows the other side of the difficult equation between the Islam and Western nations.

H.P.B. wrote about some secret societies created in the Peshawar region, where now Mr. Osama Bin Laden and the taliban have their strongholds in Afghanistan, a region which includes the border region with Pakistan.

The article is about Mr. Abdul Ghafur (1794-1877), the ruler of a tribe in Swat, in Peshawar, now part of Pakistan. A few months after the death of Mr. Ghafur, H.P.B. wrote:

“If there be truth in the Eastern doctrine that souls, powerful whether for good or bad, who had not time in one existence to work out their plans, are reincarnated, the fierceness of their yearnings to continue on earth thrusting them back into the current of their attractions, then Ghafur was a re-birth of that Felice Peretti, who is is known in history as Pope Sixtus V, of crafty and odious memory.” (2)

Felice Peretti was Pope Sixtus V in Rome from 1585 through 1590. In his “Philosophical Dictionary” (3), Voltaire describes Sixtus V as the most arrogant, cruel and despotic of kings.

As t o HPB, she compares the Pope Sixtus V to the Akhund of Swat:

“Both were born in the lowest class of society, being ignorant peasant boys and beginning life as herdsmen. Both reached the apex of power through craft and stealth and by imposing upon the superstition of the masses. Sixtus, author of mystical books and himself a practitioner of the forbidden sciences to satisfy his lust for power and ensure impunity, became Inquisitor-General. Made Pope, he hurled his anathemas alike against Elizabeth of England, the King of Navarre, and other important personages. Abdul Ghafur, endowed with an iron will, had educated himself without colleges or professors (...). He was well versed in the Arabic and Persian literature of alchemy and astrology, as Sixtus was in Aristotle, and like him knew how to fabricate mesmerized talismans and amulets (....) . Each held millions of devotees under the subjection of their psychological influence, though both were more dreaded than beloved.” (4)

About the Ghafur, the Old Lady writes that in spite the secrecy and mystery he imposed about his life, “the one certain thing is, that he was the founder and chief of nearly every secret society worth speaking of among Mussulmans, and the dominant spirit in the rest.”

She adds that he used false antagonisms, stimulating hatred in both sides of political or social disputes.

This is important for us to understand what may be going on now, behind the surface, in the politics of hatred between the Western world and the Islam.

The very fact that this intensely hating “Soul” was born once in the West and made the Christian Pope; and then was born in a Eastern country to be a top Islamic religious leader, shows that the “disciples of hatred”, so to say, search for contrast and use antagonisms for their own purposes, though usually they disguise their hatred under sweet and religious forms.

Now, if you study the Letter 120 (Chronological Edition) -- which is Letter 85 in the other editions of the “Mahatma Letters” -- you will see that H.P.B.’s Masters wanted the theosophical movement to be open to contrasts while keeping peace in the mind and heart. They wanted the movement not to repress or deny its own paradoxes and contradictions, because this is the way to get rid of occult hatred and psychological violence of all kinds. Looking directly at contrasts with calm and then going beyond them: this is one of the ways for the thesosophical movement to help purify and recover human mind as a whole.

As to the strategical aspect of the presence of Abdul Ghafur (an ex-Pope) , precisely in the Peshawar region, it may well be related to the occult importance of that place.

It is in that region that the sacred Fourth Race Bamian statues, commented by H.P. Blavatsky in “The Secret Doctrine” (5) , were destroyed between March 2 and March 11, 2001, by the Taliban/Al Qaeda “mystical” terrorists.

The Bamian Statues are connected to the complex systems of caves once used by Buddhist Arhats and Ascetics, and now probably used (in that region) by some of the taliban and Al Qaeda members. (A perfect hiding place, by the way.)

The destruction of the Statues concluded in March 11, 2001, and astrologically March 11 and September 11 make a direct opposition.

From the occult point of view, the destruction of the “Twin Towers” in New
York in September 11, 2001, may have concluded a “twin operation” with the March 11 destruction of the Buddhist Statues in Bamian, Afghanistan.

As you know, in New York the theosophical movement was founded, and in New York the United Nations (the outer seed of a future brotherhood of nations) is based. The city is a symbol of the Western world.

As to the March 11 and September 11 opposition, we may also take into consideration that the Madrid train bombings happened precisely in March 11, 2004 (causing some 200 deaths).

These are but a few hints.

There is much to investigate about this, but my main point now is that we should keep away from any intense hatred against the Islam, or against Western Society (USA or Europe), or against anything at all.

The Masters of the Wisdom and the Esoteric Philosophy seem to stimulate universal understanding and unconditional respect, without denying human failures, contrast and contradictions, whose repression only creates hatred.

Western democracies in general may be facing difficult moments, now. Yet democracy, or the art of perceiving and managing unity and diversity as a simultaneous process, is still the great lesson we have to learn, both inside and outside the theosophical movement.

One of the Mahatmas wrote in the famous Letter 120 (Chronological Edition):

“... discord is the harmony of the Universe”.

And Alexander Pope, the English poet of the 18th century, had already thus explained that aphorism of esoteric wisdom:

“All Nature is but art, unknown to thee
All chance, direction, which thout canst not see;
All discord, harmony not understood;
All partial evil, universal good;
And, spite of pride, in erring reason’s spite,
One truth is clear, Whatever is, is right.” (6)

So be it. Om, Shanti.

Peace to all beings, Carlos Cardoso Aveline.
