The world is governed by a secret power that holds us in bondage to no good end. But the conspirators are not others, they are we - you and I and everyone. A secret agenda of domination and control has existed in nearly everyone, and a world embodying that agenda has congealed around us, attracted to the dark, reptilian energies we have harboured. The good news is that these energies have nearly run their course, as the world of control breaks down, and the campaign to conquer and dominate all other being founders on its own consequences. Just as Voldemort was unable to possess Harry Potter because he couldn’t abide the love within him, so also is the ruling power of the world unable to abide our growing realization of our connectedness. Love, the felt experience of oneness, is spreading as the walls of separation come down. They never were sustainable. Today, even the most deluded – the power elite – are beginning to recognize that. The reign of the Illuminati is nearly over. That it seems to be reaching unprecedented heights only bespeaks the imminence of its demise - the extreme of yang giving birth to yin.

Evil and its expression as the New World Order - or as I would call it, the process of Separation - has, like all other things, its purpose in this universe. We embark on a journey of separation in all its forms - we reach its extreme, and we come back to Union at a higher level of complexity, enriched by our journey. To adopt the vocabulary of the New World Order myth, we might say that the reptilian overlords or the Illuminati have fulfilled their purpose. Though some might try to hold onto it a little longer, sooner or later they will accept that their time is over, and they will bow out of service.

The Illuminati - the Reptilians - are you and I... Can you not feel the obsolescence of that part of you - the part that endlessly seeks to control the world, to dominate others, to maximize egoic self-interest? Is it not increasingly evident that its efforts have created only misery? Is it not apparent that, no matter how hard you try to remedy its failure by intensifying its efforts, its ultimate failure is assured? For all of us, the time is coming for that part of ourselves to bow out, so that we can step into service, into trust, and, collectively, into the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.
