2 Killed at Venezuela Border as Aid Standoff Heads to Critical Moment
The showdown turned deadly when security forces fired on protesters near the country’s Brazilian border.
A confrontation loomed on Saturday, when Venezuela’s opposition, led by Juan Guaidó, vowed to deliver tons of humanitarian aid against the orders of President Nicolás Maduro.
Today is an important day for Venezuela and for the Americas. Many have been waiting for this Day of Liberation for quite some time.
All conflicts have two sides, so they say. Not so when the Allied Forces defeated the Axis Nations in WWII. Not so when the Berlin Wall fell. It was not a partisan conflict then, and it is not now in Venezuela, but a decision between the liberating good and the enslaving evil.
Today another wall may begin to crack: the Havana Wall of Totalitarianism in Latin America. The humanitarian crisis, acute as it is, is the outer expression of a deeper cleavage dividing the Americas in an ideological conflict, remnant of the Cold War.
It’s quite unfortunate that the corrupt Trump administration has been allowed to take the lead in forcing a resolution of the Venezuelan political crisis. Neither the Church nor the political left in Latin America have been able to face the challenge. Still, do not believe the propaganda coming from Russia, even if advocated by esoteric students, particularly those supporting Assad in Syria.
The truth is quite simple: the people of Venezuela expressed their will at the latest parliamentary election and it has been thwarted by the authoritarian Maduro regime, backed by China and Russia. In 2015, the opposition won a 2/3 majority in the National Assembly. It was subsequently nullified by a corrupt judiciary controlled by Maduro. Having finished his presidential term in office without holding free and fair election, the National Assembly, acting in accordance to the Constitution, appointed an acting President to enable a fair election validated by the international community. It is as simple as that.
The vast majority of the Venezuelan people, and almost all the democratic countries of the world, support the restitution of democracy in Venezuela. The corrupt Venezuelan military leadership is the only remaining impediment for a peaceful transition to democracy in Venezuela. They are the ones holding the key to prevent a bloody outcome to this conflict.
Do not believe the hypocritical calls for peace and dialogue from Maduro.
These two words have been abused and devalued by the Maduro regime, remotely controlled from Havana to protect its oil interests in Venezuela. Once Venezuela falls, Cuba will follow suit.
The esoteric community must not be divided over issues amenable to spiritual discernment. It’s not a matter of partisan politics, left (Maduro) or right (Trump); it’s about discerning the good that should be left behind as humanity strives toward its freedom: the freedom of speech, the freedom of religion, freedom from want and freedom from fear.
A new era of peace for the Americas is possible. The externalization of the planetary spiritual Hierarchy and the reappearance of the Christ would not be possible until a minimum of social justice, freedom and peace is restored in Venezuela, in the Americas and throughout the whole world.

Trump, May and Maduro comprise a Triangle of Unreason in current world affairs. Putin is implicated in each vertex of the triangle fostering disunity as part of a renewed cold war attempting to disintegrate Europe and the Americas (the Pan American ideal).
The other Lodge also works in triangles, triangles of darkness and hatred. They must be neutralized. Only the Will-to-Good emanating from Shamballa can accomplish this.
The humanitarian crises, looming in the UK and already factual in Venezuela, are just the effect of deeper causes. We must work to mitigate the effects, and also work to negate, prevent and destroy the root causes of the problems of humanity, among them the underlying root cause: self-interest, individual and national, the original sin of humankind.
The Leo Aquarius axis is the perfect time to address the transition from mass to individual to group consciousness. JB
