Learning from the past — Hitler as a great deceiver…(M4B*)

My reply to a thread at the Now the End Begins Blog:

What we don’t hear about so much now, as, in hindsight, everyone can see what a monster Hitler was, is that he was first a great deceiver. He had no intention of going to war with Western Europe, and hoped to take over that land through pretending that he wanted peace. His eyes were set on Russia, to which he wanted to expand to give the German people more room.

Hitler was very charming and charismatic in his early years. He even captivated the Prince of Wales, who briefly became Edward VIII and his wife-to-be Wallis Simpson. He also gained the support of Charles Lindbergh, Henry Ford, and Joseph P. Kennedy, who was called back from the Court of St. James by FDR as a Hitler appeaser. Whomever will end up on the world stage at the Anti-Christ will also at first be a great deceiver, coming in with what look like good credentials, great charm and an ability to motivate others. We must always be ready for that…

MinnegeddonPartDeux — an important lesson learned from the untimely death of Mozart, M4B*

Most of what we read about Mozart is slanted to some extent and some of it is completely false.  Some who write about him have little or no actual understanding of what he was really about, so they have to guess.  Others are deliberately trying to cover up what happened to him so that they can benefit from this disaster as did those who were alive in 1791.  I could be wrong.  I could be mistaken.  But I don’t think so.  I will let you read my words and decide for yourself what to think.

It seems to me that Mozart had an unusual gift of ‘shalom’ that nobody confirmed to him,  It was this gift that gave his music something extra — a spark of brilliance unheard in the compositions of others — a profound sense of excitement — a promise of something wonderful.  When Mozart’s music is played by others (even those who while pretending to ‘love’ Mozart actually despise him and try to pretend they are him) it has what has been called the “Mozart Effect.”  But that is really rather lame compared to the reality that you would experience if you were in the same room with him, hearing him perform his beautiful pieces for the first and perhaps the only time as he didn’t seem to like performing the same thing twice.  People were bowled over by him — not only by his music, but by his character and his personality.  In general, they tended to look for something to despise — especially when he was no longer a cute little kid.  Some went out of their way to sandbag him out of envy and jealousy.  You see, he was just ‘too’ — too smart, too talented, too arrogant, too politically incorrect.  Such tumult surrounded him wherever he went that he was continually locked out of appointments, steady work, commissions and other sources of income.  He became, in fact, a marked man.

It is my thinking that those close to him for the most part befriended him with ill-intent — flattering him to his face and slandering him behind his back.  They were all in agreement that ‘he had to go’.  So they consistently and deliberately ignored this extra gift of ‘shalom’ and did their best to take him down with dirty tricks.  He may, as he said, even have been poisoned (whether that is actually what killed him or it was done as a matter of control I cannot yet say).  They, in effect, treated him as though he was already dead and then waited for something to happen.  It was what I call the Vortex of the Evil Eye.

I am greatly blessed by the lessons of Mozart’s life, and this is perhaps the most important.  Because of what happened to him, I make sure to loose the blessed Holy Spirit of this gift of ‘shalom’ that is die zauberflote continually, to bring everyone into the light — especially those whom I know personally, for some of those have apparently tried to do the same thing to me that they did to him.  It is for that reason that so many know of me, and yet nothing is said at the level of the press.  Apparently, I’m not supposed to make it that far.

But I know die zauberflote, and it performs miracles whether there is resistance or acceptance.  I believe that by making sure to examine every relationship and bring all to the light that nobody will be able to use this gift of shalom against Gd’s will — not even a group such as the one I call “Monostatos’ Orchestra”…

Putting a square peg into a round hole? How not to evaluate Mozart…M4B*

One of the more annoying things I hear and read said about Wolfgang Mozart is that he was ‘not good with money.’  That he dealt with significant issues having to do with money is not the issue — it is that Mozart tends to be judged as a spendthrift.  Some have claimed he was a gambler.  All of this tends to color his achievements with something flagrantly negative.  And let’s not forget that usually those who knew him personally and then claimed he was ‘not good with money’ frequently did little or nothing to help him.  Even worse, some of them deliberately sandbagged him.

All of Wolf’s issues about ‘money’ started with his overbearing father Leopold, who claimed responsibility for creating the Mozart legend.  That he used a young child in a manner that nowadays might have (or at least should have) gotten him in trouble for exploiting a child was never an issue when it came to feeling comfortable in berating Mozart’s use of money.  We can say, in fact, hindsight being perfect, that his father may have conditioned Mozart to believe he was ‘not good with money.’

Let’s also take into account that Wolf was the first classical music superstar.  His credentials were impeccable — performing for the crowned heads of Europe at a very young age, no one in their right mind could call anything he did ‘insignificant’.  The royals, however, did not find it necessary to pay fairly for their entertainment, so, usually, the Mozarts were stuck eating in the kitchen with the servants and given tokens, such as watches and snuffboxes, for their efforts, instead of cold hard cash.  And so, in a sense, dealing with royalty from a young age may have contributed to convincing Mozart that he was not good at generating money.

Mozart seemed to be on a schedule.  It is almost as though he could hear the grim reaper (or was it, for example, the dark angel I call Lermontov) breathing down his neck, waiting to claim him and silence him forever.  So he worked at a feverish pace, using the gifts Gd had given him, whether he fully understood them or not.

But in all the demands made on Mozart during his relatively short life of just less than 36 years, there is not one person who said, ‘Wait a moment, do I even really understand Mozart?”  Had they done this, they might have found that his worldview was completely different in some significant ways, from their own.  How he thought, how he worked, everything was different.  Some seemed to grab a clue as to the extraordinary quality of his mind, but those seemed to simply want to steal what he had, and silence him so that he would be unable to point them out and hold them accountable.

What they might have found is that Mozart was not accountable to men, but to Gd, for his use of substance.  The gifts that had been given him did not work according to the standards of the world, but of the Atonement.  Only by digging into the Word could Mozart understand how Gd wanted to provide for him.  But Wolf was a Catholic, and most at that time were encouraged to let the church do their thinking and Bible reading for them.

With that understanding, we can then approach the issues of Mozart’s use and problems with money in an enlightened manner.  We can see that the lack of tithing and emphasis on giving would have tended to quench the gifts he had been given.  We can see that not putting Gd first in all things can have terrible consequences to our supply — such as his becoming a member of the Masons.  We can see that rushing ahead blindly rather than waiting on the Lrd can only lead to debt, no matter how great the gifts we have been given.  And perhaps we can even sympathize with Mozart’s desire to put the food on the table and provide for his wife and children — something that was always a challenge for him to do — because he was doing it on his own.

And perhaps we can determine not to repeat his mistakes…:-0

A few of the lessons to be learned from Mozart’s mistakes…M4B*

I can honestly say that were it not for all the information we have available about Wolfgang Mozart, and, most particularly, his own letters, I doubt that I would be here today.  It is said that those who do not learn from the past are condemned to repeat it.  In my case, it seemed as though nothing made sense in my life until I looked at it from the perspective of Wolf and what had happened to him.  I vowed that I would not repeat his mistakes.

Hindsight is perfect, and, when I began to research Wolf’s life in depth, some time ago, I discovered early-on, as had just about everyone else, that Wolf made a lot of mistakes.  He was considered arrogant and selfish.  He was often politically-incorrect.  He was obnoxious.  He enjoyed making others squirm as he exercised his superior musical powers, correcting their mistakes and chiding them for their superficiality.  Wolf was always engaged in life — he composed non-stop, working even while he was appearing to be relaxing.  He was a veritable dynamo of composition, and yet, his fame and masterpieces hardly gave him the success and quality of life that he anticipated.  Why was that, I wondered?  Had he been outside of Gd’s will for him in some way?  I made it a point of asking Gd’s blessing over all my endeavors, and not moving forward unless it felt right.

To some, Mozart met with a just, fair, and timely death.  He was, after all, not a child, and had written a great number of works, so why make a big deal out of the fact that he died at (almost) age 36?  To others, he had been mistreated during his life and his death came far too early as a result.  The Word tells us that Gd wants us to be healthy and live a long life.  I decided to claim my health and refuse to consider other influences.

Wolf was born a Catholic — this alone was neither a good nor a bad thing, but it seemed to make him careless about all-things-religious, assuming that the church held everything he needed to know, and then, pretty much, dismissing it.  At that time, Catholics were not encouraged to read the Bible — and I doubt that he did.  Had he dug into the Word, I do think his life would have been quite different.  I make daily Bible study and meditation a priority, doing that first thing in the morning.

Wolf was also a family man — he relied on his birth family to care for him and protect him — and I don’t think that was the case.  As a result of the handling of Wolf’s genius, the family was pretty much torn apart.  Wolf’s mother died tragically in Paris, and his father blamed him.  His sister refused to share their father’s estate with him.  There were a lot of bitter feelings underneath all the flattering words of their letters.  Again, Wolf could have found guidance in the words of Jesus, who insisted that we must put Him before family in all circumstances. I have done my best to put Gd first in all my relationships, even though doing so has caused considerable tumult at times in my family.

Then, Wolf became a Mason.  This was a very bad choice, though, at the time, it probably seemed pragmatic and intriguing.  Those whom he anticipated would reach out to help him there with financial support and opportunities did not, and he found himself in serious debt to one of their members.  Wolf did not seem to realize, nor was he told, that he had a gift different from those of his musical colleagues — a gift of the Holy Spirit, that could only be used correctly by putting Gd first at all times.  Masonry is an idol, and perhaps a dead-end for Wolf.  I decided to steer clear of anything having to do with the occult, even seemingly ‘harmless’ things, such as astrology as tarot.

And so I plod along, on not an easy road, but a road made more simple by taking to heart Wolf’s mistakes.  I am so grateful to him…:-)

#MinnegeddonPartDeux…What do Mssrs. Schrickel, Vanska, Henson and Sprenger have in common?

Answer? They all have first-hand information about or have personally experienced die zauberflote, which was born, musically speaking, on the stage at Orchestra Hall, and also, not incidentally, recorded there.  As virtually every music professional in the world claims to ‘love’ Mozart, I am sure it can’t be long before they are jumping up and down with excitement and unable to remain silent…:-0
