In 1980 a book The Aquarian Conspiracy, made its debut upon the American scene. It quickly became a hit, especially with a special group of people with similar beliefs and worldview, yet they were little known to each other. Author, Marilyn Ferguson, was the publisher of a bi-monthly journal—Brain/Mind Bulletin (circulation 10,000) which encompassed research, theory, innovation relating to learning, health, psychiatry, psychology, states of consciousness, dreams, meditation, and similar related subjects. Her position as editor and publisher brought her into contact with voluminous information that had not previously been collected and brought together to be shared with those interested.
She had contact with people from many various professions and vocations. As she received, filtered, analyzed, and published information in her bi-monthly bulletin a mental picture began to slowly form in her mind as she observed a change, a transformation taking place in the core belief system of many people. This change was occurring in individuals and in society at large. It was slow at first, starting in the 60’s but picked up momentum in an accelerating manner with
each decade. The movement was without hierarchical leadership, organization, or funding. It seemed to be arising everywhere spontaneously by small net-working individuals and groups. This change was seen in medicine, education, social sciences, hard science, and even the government.
This change appeared to follow the aftermath of the social activism of the 1960’s and 1970’s, and was moving toward a “historical synthesis,” i.e., a social transformation coming from a personal transformation—a “heart change,” then forming into a worldwide society change. With the publishing of The Aquarian Conspiracy the massed information Marilyn had collected, now organized and placed out into the open for all to see, stimulated with even greater speed widespread acceptance and promulgation of these changes of worldview and trans-formation.
I am sure the reader by this time is asking “What is changing in individuals and society as a whole?” Answer: a change in a person’s core belief system—one’s worldview! Such as Where did we come from? What are we doing here? What is the future? A change from a Western worldview formed mostly from Judaeo-Christian concepts of our origin, purpose, and destiny, toward an Eastern pantheistic perspective of “divinity within”— “the godhood of man.”
Ferguson proceeded to bring out into the open the methods by which transformation within an individual is initiated, then more fully developed. Health and healing is a dominant avenue, and a vast array of techniques has been developed to “heal body and mind.” The Christian believes that choosing to follow the Eastern pantheistic pathway separates him from his Savior, Jesus Christ the Divine Son of God. Pantheistic healing techniques are presented with an exceedingly deceptive philosophy and explanation as to how they are believed to effect healing. To accept Satan’s counterfeit healing modalities gives him homage and worship.
The purpose of this book is to present information which facilitates making an intelligent choice as to whether or not the reader would choose to participate in a particular healing therapy. Many different methods of healing are promoted as being of true value, but are founded on pagan doctrines originating from a counterfeit story of creation. This book further explains why these different therapies that carry occult or pagan principles in the explanation as to their power
to heal, cannot be separated from their attachment to such religions.
