The permeation of The Secret-style bullshit never ceases to amaze me, but we now have it coming from Dr. Shunichi Yamashita, head of a Fukushima health study being conducted to appease concerned Japanese citizens. Yamashita chastises citizens who are taking readings, finding high levels of radioactivity and then demanding answers from government officials, telling people that happy, happy good thoughts are the only things necessary to keep them safe from radiation poisoning.
"The effects of radiation do not come to people that are happy and laughing. They come to people that are weak-spirited, that brood and fret," Yamashita says.
So don't worry, true believers. As per usual, you are immune to any and all problems of the human condition as long as you repeat your New Age idioms religiously and look the other way like good little enlightened ones. You're way too far up the spiritual hierarchy Ladder to Ascension to suffer any of the indignities being brought down on the unenlightened/denser/lower-vibrating on this planet.
Don't worry about those "weak-spirited, brooding, fretting" people you see all around you. They'll stop being such downers soon, as their negative thought patterns create cancer and other radiation-related diseases. Can't say you didn't warn them!
It's amazing to see how this crap is rolled out like clockwork. Every time a purposefully orchestrated disaster is brought down, there it is. Like everything New Age, it's old snake oil, but there is always a new crop of self-important true believers willing to lap it up in times of crisis.
After the American Civil War (also orchestrated), the working poor were languishing in absolutely hideous conditions, working back-breaking jobs 12 to 16 hours a day for not enough money even to feed and clothe themselves and their families.
As Howard Zinn tells it in A People's History of the United States, Yale graduate (ie. certainly not of the working class) minister and best-selling author Russell Conwell (could you even make up a better name?) made the rounds giving a lecture called "Acres of Diamonds." It was all about how everyone could become rich if they tried hard enough - that there were fields of diamonds just waiting for anyone willing to work hard to obtain them and if you were not rich, it was some deficiency in character or work ethic, not, oh, I don't know, a system of economic slavery set up and reinforced by those with power, wealth and resources.
From Conwell's speech:
"I say that you ought to get rich, and it is your duty to get rich...The men who get rich may be the most honest men you find in the community. Let me say here clearly...ninety-eight out of one hundred of the rich men of America are honest. That is why they are rich. That is why they are trusted with money. That is why they carry on great enterprises and find plenty of people to work with them. It is because they are honest men...I sympathize with the poor, but the number of poor who are to be sympathized with is very small. To sympathize with a man whom God has punished for his sins...is to do wrong...Let us remember there is not a poor person in the United States who was not made poor by his own shortcomings."
So this is coming out of the late 1800s when Blavatsky and the New Age doctrine were first getting their legs. You can see the parallels in ideology.
Reads like parody in this Pluto in Capricorn Age, doesn't it?
