The Trump Tower is an inverted pyramid. At the top are the suckers and losers, most prominently, those who serve the country in the military —particularly prisoners of war and casualties — and those who pay taxes.
At the bottom of the pyramid are the smart ones, like the Apprentice in the White House.
The Trump Tower
The most successful part of the Trump business has been his personal brand.
The Times calculates that between 2004 and 2018, Mr. Trump made a combined $427.4 million from selling his image — an image of unapologetic wealth through shrewd business management. The marketing of this image has been a huge success, even if the underlying management of many of the operating Trump companies has not been.
Other firms, especially in real estate, have paid for the right to use the Trump name. The brand made possible the “The Apprentice” — and the show then took the image to another level.
Of course, Mr. Trump’s brand also made possible his election as the first United States president with no prior government experience.David Leonhardt (NYT)
An inverted pyramid defies the law of gravitation by keeping a fragile balance among the forces pulling its heavy top down in opposite directions. If only one of the tension cords keeping it up breaks loose, the entire pyramid crumbles.
The Trump Tower is a mirage created by an Apprentice in the Art of Deception. The Apprentice is adept in keeping opposing forces equilibrated, as he does with his mortgaged cash flow.
Each vote opposing the Apprentice in the White House in the forthcoming U.S. presidential election will be part of the effort to cut loose one of the four major tension cords keeping the Trump Tower up. These four are:
- the corrupt Evangelical movement,
- the corrupt corporate America for unregulated capitalism,
- the (fascist, ethnic cleansing) MAGA Nativists, and
- the tyranny of a minority in power due to a constitutional loophole which, like tax loopholes, claim credits not due.
The planetary Hierarchy of Light — the Great White Lodge — cannot stand neutral in this war. And a war it is, with world-wide repercussions, from climate change to the survival of humanity itself.
It is not a battle between Democrats and Republicans; it is a conflict between the national Angel of the Presence — the Soul of America — forging a future of light and its Dweller in the Threshold pulling us back to a past of darkness.
You see again another reason why the first and second initiations are not regarded by the Lodge of Masters as major initiations. Only the third is so regarded, because at that initiation the entire personality life is flooded with energy coming from the Spiritual Triad, via the “sacrifice petals” of the will and purpose aspect of the soul. To this type of energy the black magician is not responsive. He can and does respond to the knowledge—most ancient and hardly won—stored up in the “knowledge petals” of the souls he can appropriate and utilise the energy of attraction (erroneously called love by some students) stored up in the “love petals” of the soul, but he cannot respond to and use the energy of divine love, working out in the divine Plan which controls all knowledge and converts it into wisdom, and which actuates and clarifies the motive which brings loving magnetic attraction into action and which we call true group consciousness and group cohesion. It is at this point that the two ways—of darkness and of light—become widely divergent. Until the third initiation is taken, glamour may condition the attitude of those seeking to understand the life of a man upon the Path, and they may mistake the spurious for the real. The black magician leads a disciplined life, analogous to that of the spiritual aspirant; he practices purity for his own safeguarding and not in order that he may become a channel for the energy of light; he works with power (the power of magnetic attraction) with and in groups, but he does this for his own selfish ends and for the fulfillment of his own ambitious purposes. But at the third initiation there comes to the true spiritual initiate the revelation which is the reward of perseverance and purity rightly motivated—the revelation of the divine purpose, as the soul records it in terms of the hierarchical plan, though not yet in terms of the Monad. To this purpose and [Page 350] to the loving Will of God (to use a trite Christian phrase) the black brother cannot respond; his aims are different. You have here the true meaning of the oft-used and misunderstood phrase, “the parting of the ways.”
But both groups of aspirants (the black and the white) stand before the door of initiation and take the needed steps to open it on two similar occasions. Both overcome glamour after the second initiation, and see their way clearly ahead; but their goals emerge as widely different; one treads the broad way which leads ever deeper into matter and materialism, into darkness and “black power”; the other leads to the straight and narrow way, to the razor-edged path which leads into light and life. One group has never freed itself from the principles which governed the first solar system. They were principles entirely related to matter and substance, and were at that time and in that period (so remote that the number of years of distance can be stated only in super-astronomical figures) the conditioning factors for the initiation of the time. Certain units of humanity—then existent—were so completely conditioned by these material principles and so deliberately unready for moving on to the comprehension of another set of principles (more expressive of the divine nature) that they remained of “fixed and selfish material purpose” and a planned distortion of the divine will was intelligently created by them. You have here a hint as to the nature of evil and a clue to a part (though only a part) of the mystery to be noted in the statement that evil and good are reverse aspects of the same one reality, and evil is that good which we should have left behind, passing on to greater and more inclusive good. Forget not that the black magicians of today were the initiates of a previous solar system. When the door of initiation is ready to open for the third time, the parting of the ways takes place. Some follow selfish intention and the fixed determination to remain with the separative condition of matter; and to others, the divine will is clearly impressed upon them and becomes the motivating power in their lives. It was under instructions from the Great White Lodge on Sirius that the door remains [Page 351] closed the third time to the dark brothers. Evil, as we understand it, has absolutely no place on Sirius.
To the black magician, at this third opportunity, the door of initiation presents an insuperable barrier and obstacle; to the true spiritual neophyte, the door connotes “overcoming.” We shall not consider further the approach of the black brothers to that door but shall confine ourselves to a consideration of the initiations of the Great White Lodge.-excerpt from the book The Rays and the Initiations by Alice A. Bailey.
May Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
“The power of our united light prevents the appearance of the glamour [of the Trump Tower]. The power of our united light negates the quality of the glamour from affecting men. The power of our united light destroys the life behind the glamour.”excerpt from the Technique of the Light in the book Glamour: A World Problem by Alice A. Bailey.
Excerpts from Google searches
Eye of Sauron
Throughout The Lord of the Rings, “the Eye” (the Red Eye, the Evil Eye, the Lidless Eye, the Great Eye) is the image most often associated with Sauron.
Sauron bred immense armies of Orcs and allied with or enslaved Men from the east and south. He adopted the symbol of a lidless eye, and he was able at that time to send out his will over Middle-earth, so that the Eye of Sauron was a symbol of power and fear.
Barad-dûr was built by Sauron in the land of Mordor, not far from the volcano known as Mount Doom. The construction of the tower began around the SA 1000, and took six hundred years to complete. It was the greatest fortress built since the fall of Angband during the War of Wrath.
Sauron is considered evil because he served Morgoth (Melkor) he then went to Numenor and did a great deal of evil and trickery upon the men living there, corrupting them and lying to them all in the pursuit of his own means of power.
Sauron made The One Ring to help him exercise power over all other people who wore Rings of Power. He made it so powerful by imbuing a part of his soul into the ring. This decisions made the ring a conduit that made Sauron even stronger than before.
Gandalf can’t touch the One ring because it would corrupt him and he would become a terrifying wizard like Saruman. It’s the same reason Galadriel refused the One ring. The One ring can only be worn by Sauron. Anyone else who wields it would be under his control, even Gandalf the grey/ white.
The Hobbits represent small, humble, ordinary people. They don’t lust for power or fame, or aspire to do great deeds. Thus the Ring can’t corrupt them in the way that it would corrupt Boromir or Galadriel, although it can make them covet it as a possession. Dwarves were even more resistant to rings.
