This title and subtitle (abstract) were noted by me within the last couple days with the intention of blogging about this at some time however the general theme is featured in a Jon Rappoport article that I immediately wished to note consequentially this now prompts me to start the posting without further delay!
This is also a potential research project as may become obvious with the following notes:
First example of the "spellbinding, enchantment" of Hollywood possibly starts with L. Frank Baumm, Theosophist (occultist) and author famously known via "The Wizard of Oz". Once one knows the spiritual orientation of the author they can only wonder what hidden secrets lie along "the yellow brick road". I'm inspired to seek these secrets out!
"Heroes and villains in movies: images for the soul" - By Jon Rappoport -
—Yes, movies are made to install predictive programming in the audience, and to plant values and behaviors, and to debase the culture, and so forth and so on. But in many movies, something much simpler is going on…
Whether it’s the good cop capturing the bad criminal, or the warrior in outer space defending the home planet against evil marauders, heroes and villains in movies spark deep resonance in the viewing audience. A link is forged.
“I want this hero. I want this hero to win. I want the good to triumph. I want evil to be vanquished.”
And why not?
These heroes, in their fictional worlds, are keeping the future open. They’re guarding their civilization. They’re keeping The Individual free—free to pursue happiness and fulfillment according to his own dictates, dreams, visions, and plans.
At bottom, this is what thousands of movies are about. The audience may not be able to drill down to the core of meaning, but they absorb the message on an emotional level. They feel a moment of inspiration. A flame of hope is lit.
The urge to tear down all heroes and dismantle the best ideas and principles of society is, for an hour or two, put on the back burner. Instead, the viewer sees his own possible advance toward manifesting what he truly desires in life.
No movie has ever produced this salutary effect by portraying a group as an amorphous mass—it’s always the individual hero who stands out and carries the plot line. This is vital. The audience responds to this.
The audience member sees his own victory mirrored in the individual hero’s victory.
And then, in “real” life, it all changes. At that point, we are supposed to accept something decidedly different: the winning of the future by and for a Collective.
A delusion happened. Is happening. It’s called utopian programming. It’s called propaganda.
All of a sudden, a big vague WE takes center stage. WE are going to curtail our best individual visions and join “everybody else” in creating a better world.
Who is promoting this?

Artists who painted angels, archangels and divinities, often depicted them in magnificent clothes and adorned with gold and precious stones. They intuitively knew there was a correspondence between spiritual wealth and material wealth. The tradition of sacerdotal vestments adorned with precious stones, still present to this day, has the same meaning: an officiating priest's spiritual wealth must be shown by the external wealth of their clothing.
And if you too wear jewellery adorned with precious stones, know that you must also possess these stones within you: sapphires symbolize peace;
the topaz, wisdom;
diamonds, strength of spirit.
There is endless wealth in the symbolism of precious stones and their full power is yet unknown.
Comment: If L. Frank Baumm was a full-fledged Theosophist when he wrote: "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" (in Chicago BTW) then surely he knew the symbolism of the emerald and possibly (like Omraam says) as hope. IMO hope fits the story of the four main characters who were hoping for what each of them lacked individually.
However he wasn't quite yet a "full-fledged" member of the society when the "Wizard" was published - yet possibly still a Theosophist at heart:
"... L. Frank Baum and his wife Maud Gage joined the Theosophical Society in Chicago. The archives of the Theosophical Society in Pasadena, California recorded the start of their membership on September 4th, 1892. In 1890, the Wizard of Oz was published."
"... the entire story of the Wizard of Oz is an allegorical tale of the soul’s path to illumination – the Yellow Brick Road. In Buddhism (an important part of Theosophical teachings) the same concept is referred to as the 'Golden Path'.
Comment: Interesting to read "the 'Golden Path'" as that's the term used by Gene Keys author Richard Rudd for his Gene Keys course. And I have called our Gene Keys group: "Golden Paths in San Diego."
Although the nature of this "allegorical tale" holds some interest for me I am more interested in the Human Design of the author and how that influenced the course of his life. I generated the author's Human Design BodyGraph and immediately looked at the gates that were activated in his Throat Center as the quintessential "channel" for his Expression, Communication and Manifestation. This center can act when it is connected to another center that is a "motor" which was the case with Frank Baum who had a defined channel to his Solar Plexus center. One his Throat Gates was activated by his natal Sun which carries approximately 70% of the neutrino stream as an activation imprint when he was born. The activation was at the first Hexagram Line: "Honesty - Knowing that creative expression must be honestly communicated and shared." I find this insight into what made Frank "tick" on the inside most fascinating!
January 20, 2019 - Another "Yellow Brick Road"? -
"Spiritual life is a long walk towards a promised land that is first and foremost within us, and we must set off again each day to draw closer to it. Just like nomads in the desert continually search for wells and oases, we must constantly keep moving. ..."
Omraam has a different Human Design than L Frank Baum and hence a different expression of what may essentially be the same eternal truth. I appreciate the explanation that Omraam includes along with his analogies. L. Frank Baum let the analogies stand with other explanation and subsequently made the "promised land" more vivid which certainly made for great stories for so many people!
