According to David Wilcock’s exhaustive research, which he published in THE SOURCE FIELD INVESTIGATIONS, the history of the “Golden Age” has its roots in ancient Zoroastrian history. Interestingly enough, as Wilcock notes, “the original Zoroastrian concepts about the end of an age do not have the apocalyptic quality that many other prophecies do…. Zoroaster did not espouse the idea of human beings levitating up into the heavens and disappearing.”
From A History of Zoroastrianism, Volume Three: Zoroastrianism Under Macedonian and Roman Rule by Mary Boyce and Franz Grener (1991), we read:
[Zoroaster’s] future expectations were fixed upon this loved and familiar earth. It is on it, restored to its original perfection, that the kingdom of Ahura Mazda is to come; and the blessed are to live here eternally in his presence, solid flesh on solid ground. . . . It was an end of history that he foretold, not an end of the world.
Prophecies of woes and iniquities in the last age are alien to orthodox Zoroastrianism, for Zoroaster’s fundamental message was that the triumph of goodness would come when evil had been progressively weakened through the concerted efforts of the just. . . . Human virtues, such as justice, faith, liberality, joyfulness, will then be increasing throughout the world, and vices such as tyranny, enmity, heresy and injustice will dwindle away. . . .
[Zoroaster] perceived the salvation of the world as dependent both on cosmic striving and on the sum of individual human choices; and these two conjoined aspects of his teachings — emphasis on individual responsibility and concern for the whole cosmos — made his doctrines strikingly relevant to the conditions and problems of the Hellenistic age.
Zoroaster’s teachings go back farthest in time and have been handed down from the Hellenistic age all the way to our present age by way of all religions. Of particular interest to our own age of barbarism, particularly in the Middle East, is Zoroaster’s teaching about evil.
Zoroastrianism taught the Ahura Mazda’s rule over the earth in the beginning had been deliberately brief, since he wished for the invasion of his Adversary, the Evil Spirit, so that he may defeat and annihilate him.
Wilcock concludes: “This, of course, suggests that the real purpose of the negative forces are simply to help us evolve in consciousness; but they were never intended to win — and never can win. They can only adapt to the basic nature of the Universe itself, which is loving kindness.”
Can you hold that thought in your mind and heart as you watch the evening news? Evil cannot and will not win in a world that is populated by seven-billion divine beings, a relatively hand full of whom are here to enact the defeat and annihilation of evil in the world? The rest of us, by far the greater majority of incarnate beings, are here to manifest the Golden Age.
TIME IS RUNNNING OUT
Those words tend to trigger anxiety about the future, when they actually point to a shift in consciousness that is already underway. As we enter the new Golden Age, time simply ceases to exist. More accurately, our consciousness of time changes, as it has already. Time is a linear measurement of space/time. In time/space, there is no linear measurement. Only the vertical reality of now, the present moment. The present moment is already become the safest place in which to be and gather up all one’s senses. If you try to keep up with the the changes going on in space/time as it transitions from third to fourth density — which is where planet Earth has already begun to ascend — your mind will soon become exhausted, confused and crazy.
The sane thing to do is focus your mind on what’s at hand in the present moment as an entry point for love, truth and life into the world, and let the world go its way to transformation — a transformation that is brought about by cosmic events and our living expressions of love, compassion, kindness, truth, integrity, joyfulness, and life itself. It’s what we all want anyway, and it will go in that direction faster and with the least amount of distress to human beings as we take our hands off of it. “Let it go!” as the song from the movie Frozen sings it. I love these lyrics by Robert and Kristen Anderson-Lopez:
It’s funny how some distance – Makes everything seem small – And the fears that once controlled me – Can’t get to me at all!
It’s time to see – What I can do – To test the limits and break through – No right, no wrong – No rules for me – I’m free! – Let it go! Let it go!
I am one with the wind and sky! – Let it go! Let it go! – You’ll never see me cry! – Here I stand and here I’ll stay – Let the storm rage on…
My power flurries through the air into the ground – My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around – And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast – I’m never going back – The past is in the past! – Let it go! Let it go!
And I’ll rise like the break of dawn! – Let it go! Let it go! – That perfect girl is gone! – Here I stand in the light of day… Let the storm rage on!!! – The cold never bothered me anyway
Power-filled lyrics sung with such passion by Idina Menzel as “Elsa.”
There’s a passage in Boyce and Grener’s book Wilcock spends a couple of pages on that speaks of a “Great Judgement” that I would like to end this series of posts with, mainly because it’s an opportunity to let some clear light shine upon the highly distorted concept religion has constructed. It’s rather a watered down version of what Zoroaster taught. The passage is excerpted from The Book of Enoch (2 Enoch) in the old Zoroastrian scriptures.
Before everything was, before all creation came to pass, the Lord established the Aion of Creation. Thereafter He created all His creation, the visible and the invisible. After all that He created man in His image…. Then for the sake of man, the Lord caused the Aion to come forth, and divided it into times and hours…. When all the creation that was created by the Lord will come to an end, and every man will go to the Great Judgment of the Lord, then the times will perish: there will not be any more years, or months or days, the hours will not be counted anymore, but the Aion will be one. And all the righteous that will escape the Great Judgment of the Lord will join the great Aion, and at the same time the Aion will join the righteous, and they will be eternal….
Wilcock’s comment: “This all sounds very much like a blending together of space-time and time-space so we can function in both worlds at the same time. Boyce and Grenet give valuable context from other sources about the same thing on pages 444-445.”
In another passage (I Corinthians 7:29, 31) Paul, believing that “the appointed time has grown very short,” declared that “the form of this world is passing away.” Some centuries later Augustine … saw this change of the world’s “form.” … The cosmos, too, is to pass out of time into eternity, [and] is to share, according to its capacity, in the eternity of the immutable Truth…. In the final consummation of all things, therefore, time will be no more; all will be eternal-God, man, the world.” This teaching, found by Augustine in Paul, has been characterized as remarkable; but it is in fact what had been taught by Zoroaster, and believed by his followers down the ages.
Wilcock: “On pages 365-366, we hear about how we will have a ‘future body’ that is a ‘return to perfection.'”
Among Zoroaster’s eschatological ideas was his teaching about the” future body,” that at the Last Day the bones of the dead will be clothed again in flesh and reanimated by the soul (which has been existing apart, in heaven, hell or limbo, according to the individual judgment passed on it at death) …. According to him, each created thing, animate or inanimate, possesses its own indwelling force or spirit; and Ahura Mazda created these spirits first and then clothed them in material forms … at the end of time there will be a return to that perfection, with the blessed entering into the kingdom of Ahura Mazda in the ideal form of a just soul clad in an unblemished body, made immortal and undecaying.”
Wilcock: “Bear in mind this is not talking about a single Messianic figure–this is saying that “the blessed” will achieve this feat. This could be many different people.”
“Boyce and Grenet carefully trace how the difficulties of Roman and Macedonian rule affected Zoroastrian prophecies as well — causing later writers to adopt much more of a doom-and-gloom approach, which then seeded into all other Western religions. Nonetheless, what we see in the oldest, least-disturbed accounts is of a world that is transformed — in which time as we know it has come to an end, but not in a cataclysmic fashion. Evil is exposed and dwindles away, and humanity on earth appears to have transformed into an ‘unblemished body, made immortal and undecaying.'”
Here’s a link if you want to read from the Book of Enoch. It’s very fascinating reading. Keep in mind, however, that it is ancient scripture, part of the package of Old Testament scripture that Jesus said he had come to fulfill. He brought a new commandment of Love and opened wide the gates of heaven within the human heart: “…for the kingdom of heaven is within you” (Luke 17:21). Turn around and behold it is at hand, within and all around us.
The Golden Age will materialize out of the heavens, where it awaits its birth through human beings, when The Golden Race wakes up fully from its slumber to manifest it. When we human beings who are on earth now begin to truly love the Lord our God with all of our hearts, and with all of our minds, and with all of our strength – our very life – and when we begin to truly love our neighbor as our Self so that we stop killing one another — with bullets as well as with words. Because our neighbor is our Self.
We ARE the Golden Race.
