Stretching The Truth


 This blog reported in 2017 that Jorge Bergoglio ("Pope" Francis) participated in--and continues to promote--pagan "life-force channeling", known as Reiki. He had consulted with, and used, a pagan Taoist monk named Liu Ming (See http://introiboadaltaredei2.blogspot.com/2017/12/francis-and-dark-side-of-force.html). I was castigated in the comments by a Vatican II sect apologist who claimed that I "inferred things," and that Traditionalists "spin everything" against the false pope. Not only have later developments proven me correct, but now His Wickedness is openly involved with yoga and transcendental meditation ("TM").  The Vatican II sect openly promotes yoga, and earlier this year, the Modernist Vatican held a Conference to "unite people without prejudice to stimulate an open dialogue and catalyze an interdisciplinary approach to tackle major health care challenges around the globe." (Remember when the Vatican had a real pope and they were concerned for the health and salvation of souls?).

 Not only did Bergoglio invite the scum of the Earth ( pro-abortion and pro-sodomite former U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden), but he invited Satanic pop-star Katy Perry to talk about TM, and former physician turned occult guru Deepak Chopra to deliver an address. This post will expose the evil embodied in Perry and Chopra, as well as the inherently occult practices of yoga and TM.

Katy Perry

 Katy Perry is an example of perversity on parade. Born Katheryn Hudson on October 25, 1984, she is seen as wholesome because her father was a Pentecostal minister and she grew up on Gospel music. Her first album was Christian music. Then, she claims in an interview, "When I was 15, because I grew up in a household where all I ever did was listen to gospel music…. I swear I wanted to be, like, the Amy Grant of music, but it didn’t work out, and so I sold my soul to the devil."

Her first big hit after selling her soul was I Kissed a Girl, which is about a lesbian encounter.  Later her own father would break down in tears over her choice to serve Satan.  He would later acknowledge, as she did earlier, that Perry is doing Satan’s work, exclaiming, “My girl Katy Perry is a devil child.”  He stated, "I was at a concert of Katy’s where there were 20,000. I’m watching this generation, and they were going at it. It was almost like church,” Keith said. “I stood there and wept and kept on weeping and weeping. They’re loving and worshiping the wrong thing.” (See http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/showbiz/4911473/katy-perry-preacher-father-in-devil-child-rant.html).

Perry received the Human Rights Campaign’s "National Equality Award" for her "LGBT" sodomite-perversion activism in March 2017. "Truth be told, I did more than that," Perry proclaimed as she discussed her song I Kissed a Girl after getting the award. (See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBjN4DgDLCc). She told Glamour Magazine she would re-write the 2008 pro-lesbian song to make it even more perverse, "We've really changed, conversationally, in the past 10 years...We've come a long way. Bisexuality wasn't as talked about back then, or any type of fluidity. If I had to write that song again, I probably would make an edit on it. Lyrically, it has a couple of stereotypes in it. Your mind changes so much in 10 years, and you grow so much. What's true for you can evolve."(See https://www.glamour.com/story/katy-perry-would-rewrite-i-kissed-a-girl-video).

An ardent supporter of murdering unborn children, Perry donated $10,000 to Planned Parenthood. In the video "Bon Appétit," Perry is cooked by chefs and offered as a meal to a party of elite guests as the main course. The video ends with Perry about to eat a pie containing body parts of the guests. It is a gruesome tribute to cannibalism, another occult/pagan practice. Katy Perry was invited to speak on the topic of TM; more on that below.

Deepak Chopra

 Born in India (1946), Deepak Chopra completed studies in medicine before coming to the United States to complete his residencies in Internal Medicine and Endocrinology. In 1985, he became involved in the TM movement, studying directly under Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (d. 2008), the founder of the movement. He left medicine to promote occult/New Age alternative medicine and began writing books. After appearing on Oprah in 1993, his career took off. He has written extensively (approx. 50 books), including yoga and meditation. 

His 2008 book, The Third Jesus, exposes his false and blasphemous teachings. He tells us the "first Jesus" is the historical Christ Who is fictitious and Whom we must leave behind. The "second Jesus"  is comprised of interpretations of both Biblical sayings of Christ, and false sayings from the Gnostic gospels which are false and uninspired writings. The "third Jesus" is (no surprise) a New Age guru because, he tells us, Christianity has not only failed to help people follow Christ, it has created a false Christ who keeps Jesus’ true intentions hidden.

What is this "New Age Christ" like? Some of his traits:
  • Jesus is a spiritually advanced being who provides an example for us to achieve our own "spiritual evolution." He is often compared to, or paired with, Buddha. Thus, Chopra insists, "the Christian seeker who wants to reach God is no different from the Buddhist. Both are directed into their own consciousness" (Third Jesus, 87).
  • Jesus death on the cross and his Resurrection are of little or no importance. Thus, a significant part of the Gospels (roughly a quarter of those texts) is simply ignored or dismissed as unimportant.
  • Extra-biblical documents, especially Gnostic texts, are used and regarded as authentic sources for the life of Jesus.
  • Bible passages are given esoteric interpretations that contradict orthodox understandings, as well as historical facts.

What is are pagans/occultists doing with Bergoglio? Pushing TM and yoga!

Yoga and TM

 Millions of Americans (and countless millions more worldwide) practice yoga. Vatican II sect churches promote it, and conduct classes on their property. Yoga is perceived by most people to simply be another form of exercise. Many fool themselves into thinking that you can adopt the physical aspects of yoga divorced from its religious roots. This is simply false. It can be said that there is no Hinduism without yoga and no yoga without Hinduism. Yoga influences and has been influenced by Buddhism and Jainism; that's three pagan religions. These facts strongly suggest that yoga is primarily spiritual in nature, which is the explicit understanding of its Eastern practitioners, and many Western devotees. 

Yoga is synonymous with Eastern meditation and pantheism, the idea that reality is identical with Divinity, and that all-things compose an all-encompassing, immanent "god." The goal of the yoga practitioner is to unify himself/herself with the "Divine-self" or "God-Self." Through yoga meditation, the person tries to lose contact with the conscious mind for an altered state of consciousness. This disassociation is meant to allow a person to become "one" with "the Divine." Even those who do not get to such altered states, have unwittingly opened themselves up to a decidedly pagan worldview and possible demon possession. The idea of being "divine" is the opposite of Christianity which tells us we are sinners in need of Redemption by the God-Man Jesus Christ.

When yoga techniques are labeled as "relaxation techniques" or "ways to reduce stress," it is misleading. Traditionalist Catholic meditation is the conscious, focused, reflective, cognitive attention to God, such as when one meditates on the mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary. Yoga meditation results in an altered state of consciousness; really a form of self-hypnosis. 

The issue still needs to be addressed if yoga can be separated from its pagan aspects and just be used as exercise. Experts in yoga seem to agree that you cannot do so. Swami Prabhupada  states, "Yoga is full of surprises. The first surprise was that it is not simply exercise. Yoga is a moving meditation, a system for developing the mind, the body, and the spirit in unison. This holistic approach makes yoga feel different from Western sports training." (See A.C. Bhaktivendanta Swami Prabhupada, The Quest for Enlightenment, Bhaktivendanta Book Trust , Los Angeles, [1977], pg. 3)

Transcendental Meditation (TM) is a veiled form of Hindu yoga, though it claims to be a religiously neutral method of relaxation and rejuvenation. Initiates to TM receive a mantra (Hindu holy word) to repeat while sitting in yogic postures and engaging in yogic breathing. The goal is to find God within their own beings, since God (Brahman) and the self (Atman) are really one. In the 1960's Maharishi Mahesh Yogi came to the United States, which was then torn by race riots, drug abuse and a rapidly deteriorating youth scene. He began to lecture on the merits of TM as a "scientific" answer to all spiritual and mental ills of humanity. Immediately, he was hailed a "savior" who was bringing the exact answer at the right time. Yoga nad TM caught on. When he died in 2008, his foundation for TM in the U.S. was worth an estimated $300 million. 

In 1989, the Modernist Vatican, under Wojtyla, issued a "Letter to the Bishops (sic) of the Catholic (sic) Church on Some Aspects of Meditation." It came from The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (sic) under Ratzinger, and in para. #12 we read:
"With the present diffusion of eastern methods of meditation in the Christian world and in ecclesial communities, we find ourselves faced with a pointed renewal of an attempt, which is not free from dangers and errors, to fuse Christian meditation with that which is non-Christian... These and similar proposals to harmonize Christian meditation with eastern techniques need to have their contents and methods ever subjected to a thorough-going examination so as to avoid the danger of falling into syncretism." 

A "danger of falling into syncretism"? Too late. Syncretism, or the attempt to fuse together different belief systems, already took place at Vatican II. The term "ecclesial communities" belies the false ecclesiology of Vatican II where all religions are more or less good. As stated in the heretical document Nostra Aetate, "Thus in Hinduism, men contemplate the divine mystery and express it through an inexhaustible abundance of myths and through searching philosophical inquiry. They seek freedom from the anguish of our human condition either through ascetical practices or profound meditation or a flight to God with love and trust...The Church, therefore, exhorts her sons, that through dialogue and collaboration with the followers of other religions, carried out with prudence and love and in witness to the Christian faith and life, they recognize, preserve and promote the good things, spiritual and moral, as well as the socio-cultural values found among these men." (para. #2). 

Furthermore, how does something innately pagan get "subjected to a thorough-going examination"? What does that even mean? Telling people yoga and its Eastern meditation (TM) are in any way "Christian" is more than "stretching the truth," it's an outright lie.

Conclusion

 How will "Recognize and Resistors" (R&R) and Vatican II sect apologists spin this one? Bergoglio invited pro-abortion, and pro-sodomite occultists to the Vatican. They were there in order to promote pagan yoga and TM which open people to demonic forces and advances a pagan worldview. Can anyone with a straight face say, "He didn't know?" A couple of years ago, Frankie said that yoga "has no answers." However, his actions speak louder than his nebulous words. Bergoglio is no pope. No Vicar of Christ would do this; he is advancing the revolution of Vatican II. That revolution wants a world devoid of Christ and His One True Church.

  3. Introibo, thank you for another informative blog, and also for your previous blog on the Sacramentals of the Church.

    You noted concerning yoga, " Vatican II sect churches promote it, and conduct classes on their property." Yes, indeed. Sadly what you say is true about them conducting this nonsense and also now "on their property".
    These heretics, strangely like so many of their kind over the ages, are thieves as well as heretics.

    I don't know if the recent royal "marriage" of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle held at St George's Chapel at Windsor in London drew much attention in the U.S.A, but for countries in the Commonwealth of Nations (countries still bound by cultural ties to the English Throne) it dominated news reports for ages both leading up to the event and has continued to do so since. St George's Chapel was begun under King Edward III in 1348 as a religious college which extended the Chapel of St Edward the Confessor at Windsor Castle. This 'chapel' which is the size of a very large church is one of the many splendours of the Age of Faith in England. They were Catholic, but were stolen by the Anglican heretics. Nowadays, they come in handy for ceremonies like the recent officiating of a 'marriage' between a royal playboy and a divorcee.

    The same story has been repeated in our own lifetime, except on a vastly larger scale: the theft by the Modernists of virtually every building in the Catholic world anywhere on earth: cathedrals, basilicas, churches, chapels, monasteries, convents, other religious houses, universities, schools, orphanages, hospices and hospitals. A theft unprecedented in the history of the world, and now, instead of being used to worship and serve God, are centres for practising and propagating the New Age religions.

    2. The problem is that exact medal of honour had some honourable background.

      Gilbert Keith Chesterton got it by Pope Pius XI.

      No, the feeling is not surprise, more like "not that too!"

      Chesterton was generally very pro-lower class, but he made a clear exception for lower class couples not wanting children (or any couple not wanting them).

  5. Thanks for great article!! This Yoga and New Age paganism has not only infiltrated the Vatican II sect, but the medical profession as well. Recently I had a physician tell me to practice Yoga and Tai Chi as a way to treat blood pressure. (His telling me that raised my blood pressure)!! Another physician had New Age crystals strewn about her office as well as on her person. Ellicott City, Maryland just got flooded for the 2nd time in two years. I live near that City and it is full of New Age shops and Wiccan practitoners. I often wonder if the reason it keeps getting destroyed is because of the New Age paganism in the City?

    1. Joann,
      You are correct that the medical profession has adopted yoga as “treatment” with some insurance companies even covering it! Could flooding and the like be a punishment from God? Yes. I would refrain from saying it definitively however, without special revelation. Therefore it’s ok to believe it and say it as an opinion, but not a proven fact. That’s how I see such things.

  6. Other sad fact about Kate Perry ... she married a Hindoo or sth, and now she seems to be with Orlando Bloom.

    If the first marriage was valid, i e, if the Hindoo and she were both baptised, she lives in adultery.

    Orlando Bloom was welcomed with Kate Perry by Bergoglio. I think he explicitly asked for God's blessing on their love, and I don't think she got a pass from the Vatican II rota to marry him.

  7. Do you think that the Relaxation Response of Dr. Herbert Benson is Transcendental Meditation? The Relaxation Response is similar in practice but does not involve invoking a deity as does Transcendental Meditation; the word repeated in RR can be any word at all. RR seems to be a documentable physiological process whereby the parasympathetic nervous system relaxes the practitioner.

    1. According to John Klimo (who wrote what has been called the definitive book on channeling) millions of people meditating for stress reduction could become “transformed “as a result.

      His optimism was well-founded. When the meditation techniques used in stress reduction are compared to the meditation used in New Age spirituality, it is clear to see they are basically the same. Both use either the breathing or mantra method (it need not be a pagan word—some even use the Most Holy Name Of Jesus—the word is being used in vain) to still the mind. A blank state of mind is all that is necessary for contact to occur with a demon.

      To use the Holy Name with resolve terrifies demons, not so if it’s used as a way to “empty” the mind. Since the premise is the same, I believe the relaxation response is paganism dressed as science.

    2. Would deep breathing and progressive muscle relaxation also be pagan?

      Delete
    3. David,
      To that I would say no, as long as the focus is not on a blank state of mind. In the literature I’ve read on the subject, the focus is on your muscles to take your mind off what’s troubling you and afterwards you have a sense of less stress. Understood in this way, I personally don’t think it’s pagan.

    4. One follow-up question...is merely abstaining from thinking considered a blank state of mind or stilling the mind? Such as when someone is trying to fall asleep? Could someone who deliberately tries not to think but does not do breathing techniques or mantra end up possessed?

      Delete
    5. Not having any citations, my opinion is in the negative. I would have to begin by asking "Why is the person trying not to think?" If it's to fall asleep, I see no problems. The intent of the person plays a big role in whether or not he's allowing evil to enter in his life.

  8. Almost 20 years ago, I started taking my faith seriously and began to practice it as much as I could, daily fake mass (who knew), spiritual reading, and retreats. The first few times werent too bad, but every year more and more of this new age crap like Reiki was introduced. Come 2007 I basically stopped practicing the NO religion and attended Indult Masses. But one quickly realizes that those masses are set up as trad ghettos. The hierarchy has no interest in true Catholicism. We were give our little niche to shut us up. I then read everything I could get my hands on about the SSPX. But after reading Michael Davies and then John Daly's "Evaluation," there was no option but to become a sede. I would have to lie to myself to think a modernist could be Pope.

    1. Interesting story Tom! At age 13 I was an “altar boy” (table server) in the V2 sect. At 16,I came across an old Missal belonging to my father. I couldn’t reconcile that the two expressed the same Faith. When I asked one of the priests (validly ordained) he got angry and yelled at me.Searching for answers, I saw an ad in the newspaper for Fr. DePauw’s Ave Maris Chapel. I went and I knew that it was real Catholicism. The V2 priests were liars.

      There was no going back. Shortly thereafter, I doubted the legitimacy of Wojtyla and soon embraced Sedevacantism. Everything since then confirmed my belief—-including the events of this post!

    2. Is there anywhere that a Catholic can safely read about the basic tenets of false religions? My brother, baptized Catholic in 1960, has been a "devout" buddhist for decades. The tragedy is that he never was exposed to the true faith, just the novus ordo. He and I are for the most part estranged, and religion is off the table of discussion topics. I'm just wondering what it is about buddhism that he has found so captivating.

      Thank you for any suggestions.

    3. Barbara,
      I would recommend “The Universe Next Door” by James W Sire available at Amazon for $14.38. Although Sire is Protestant, he is very scholarly and objective in laying out the major worldviews including Eastern monism (Buddhism, etc) and New Age paganism. It is very readable and not too technical for the non-academic.

      I’m praying for your brother’s return to the Faith of his baptism, stolen by Vatican II.

    1. Joann,
      The Jesus Prayer originated with the Eastern Schismatics. It states, “Jesus, have mercy on me, a sinner.” It has been likened to a mantra, but it is not. It is meant to be recited while contemplating the Mystery of the Most Holy Trinity, not to “empty the mind” like pagans.

      That’s not to say it can’t be abused, but anything is subject to misuse.

    2. "It has been likened to a mantra ... 'empty the mind' like pagans."

      Are you sure Hindoos are as much about emptying the mind as Buddhists?

      I thought "bhakti" meant devotion ...

      Obviously, I do endorse your defense of the Jesus prayer, and it was (or at least its words were) the favourite prayer of St Josaphat Kunczevic after he returned from schism.

    4. Kevin,
      I agree that Buddhism and Hinduism are alike, but yoga comes from the Hindus. One of the earliest evidence of yoga practice that is written down, is in the "Upanishads" one of the classical scriptures og the Hindus. The first religious text devoted entirely to yoga was the "Bhagavad-Gita" written circa 200 B.C. Finally, what we may call "modern(or classical)yoga" was systematized by Patanjoli in the text "Yoga Sutra" written circa 150 A.D. Yoga truly stems from Hinduism and is "borrowed" by Buddhism, not vice-versa!

    5. Are you not confusing Yoga with Meditation?

      Bhagavadgita has as far as I can see, very little to do with emptying your mind ... as far as I have read up on its context in Mahabharata it is a false epiphany of Krishna "as god" to his friend Arjuna.

      Delete
    6. Hans,
      As stated in one source, “The Gita serves as both an ancient story of Krishna leading Arjuna into battle and a spiritual text on the inner struggle for self-mastery and the attainment of happiness through yoga.“
      (See http://www.yogabasics.com/learn/bhagavad-gita/)

      And yoga goes hand in glove with pagan meditation.

    7. Your relation between yoga and gita is probably correct, which is a ery good reason not to think your identification between yoga and Buddhist meditation is.

      Those are two different types of expercise, as they belong to two different (both false, but not false same way) religions.

  11. Awesome post!

    My only disagreement is that it is possible to separate yoga as an exercise. The trick is to not get fooled into believing that you must participate in the non-physical or non-exercise related aspects for it to be beneficial. This is completely possible if used as a method for stretching weary or tight muscles.

    In this sense, it's not truly yoga as it's meant to be.

    Benedicamus Domino!
