Ramtha Knows Best

Okay, guys, I wasn't going to post anything until after this weekend in order to high-light this weekend's events and I realize I've been posting a lot but I found this last night and DANG, it's just too good. You need to see this. This is why I have a blog.

A little preface: The Ramtha School of Enlightenment is a cult that operates out of Yelm, Washington, about 20 minutes outside of my hometown of Olympia. Don't balk at the term cult, it's a cult, watch the video and...it's a cult. I could write or talk about the Ramtha School of Enlightenment for pages or hours or hours worth of pages. It's one of my very favorite subjects. If we're ever talking and there's an awkward lull in the conversation, just ask me about Ramtha and we'll be set for at least the next half hour. So, Ramtha is a 30,000 year old male warrior spirit and JZ Knight is a woman from Oklahoma or somewhere's who channels Ramtha. Ramtha inhabits JZ so that, as a more highly evolved being, he can teach us about quantum mechanics. He wants us to learn how to "create our own realities". Has anyone seen the movie "What the #@$! Do We Know?"? That was all Ramtha and Co.'s doing. Now watch the clip. Here's Part 2 of Ramtha on "Emotional Addiction". Who the dumbass interviewing Ramtha/JZ is, I have no idea.



Usually seing JZ/Ramtha in action makes me want to cleave my face in twain with an axe. Part 1, definitely had that effect. I really had to struggle through that one; there was a lot of wailing and groaning. Part 2 though is something else all together, it transcends their usual platitudinous pseudo-science to a level of absurdity that nears the sublime. The pipe, the pipe, the pipe, the pipe, THE PIPE. (I can't get over it). I felt actual joy watching this, okay maybe it was just overwhelming disbelief and amusement, but nonetheless I had to share it with you. Honestly, you can't really argue with them a) because the bullshit is so thick that it's next to impossible to discern what the FUCK they're talking about and b) because it's all blanket self-empowerment stuff that you could glean from any self-help book just with a little 30,000 year old wicka-wicka-hoo-hoo and some qunatum mechanics thrown in. Self-empowerment is hands down a good thing, no argument there. Plus if you sign up for one of Ramtha/JZ's seminars (first one is free!) you might learn how to: see through time! develop 360 degree vision! talk to aliens! or cover your ceiling in copper plating because some lady/some warrior spirit says it's a good idea!

Really, there's so much to discuss here that I'll have to come back to it soon. I have some great Ramtha stories. Hit me up, my "beloved entities" and create yourselves a beautiful day.

p.s. I love a cult headed up by a woman. I sincerely do. JZ Knight is a lot of things and one of them is a marketing genius. I will give her that. My feelings are mixed. I have questions; some of which include: Why a male warrior spirit? Why oh why the British accent? and How much money do I have to pay before I can see through time?

Hi St. Clare,

I'm so glad to hear that you're aware of Ramtha and JZ. That is surely good news for the universe. I have not personally met JZ or Ramtha but they did speak at my college. I'm pretty sure both of them were present though it was difficult to tell because the accents kept well, changing. Mostly I have stories about ramsters (followers of Ramtha) with some good inside info from someone who used to work for her/them. More soon!

OK, that's simultaneously yes totally insane and totally compelling.

Would love to hear your ramtha stories as well. For more inside info, you may want to check out enlightenmefree.com, a forum of former 'ramsters'.

Thank you for confirming my first impression and continued perception that this is complete and utter ego-inflating bs. Particularly when it tries to pass for quantum theory. At best, the messages come across as condescending, assuming the audience knows nothing about that which "Ramtha" speaks. There is nothing unique in the words. It sounds like a soup of various superficial phrases about much more profound topics like quantum mechanics, physiological and psychological concepts in various psychologies, philosophies,etc.

who ever wrote this is an emotionally addicted idiot,and for your information i was at the event when ramtha named the movie" what the bleep do you know" and i see he was thinking of you and shallow minded people like you ..its pretty easy to say anything about a great mind, but really what do you really know? its obvious by your words ,nothing.you should stick to Opra winphry she's more your speed.

When people criticize someone, as with everyone here, it is an attempt to make them feel better about themselves. Not understanding the core message that Ramtha speaks of is an individuality....you need to experience life more, to own an experience....and that is when you become wise...that is when you will understand. All will understand sooner or later....you just need to get to a better viewing area...*sigh*

Yeah, her little zealots hit me up when I went to go shooting with my Platoon SGT in Yelm. Sheesh, they are all but loonie-tunes! Glad I'm not the only that thinks they are crazy. You should hear the voluminous radio commercials right now. Must be hurting financially...
