Earthdance Florida 2015 and Spiritual Illness
by Cyrus Azoth Dreifuz
I would like to start out this article about character and illness by first stating and informing you that my Facebook profile character persona is an act. It is as if I am creating a character for a Hollywood or Disney movie. It is a parody of an evil super villainous mastermind bent on one day ruling the world with his devious scheming plots. It is a warning to you all that there are still great evils that exist in this world today and that one should always remain vigilant against the dark forces at work against you within this material world. There exists a person who will do anything to get ahead of you in life with sneaky and shady tactics or take from you what you have worked hard to earn. The powers of darkness run rampant within this material world and those of you who are too blind to see it and too deaf to hear it will be trampled over and destroyed by the dark powers of deception and wickedness in men’s hearts unless one trains oneself to be more vigilant to the truth when some new experience is presented to them.
This year’s Earthdance 2015 was incredible and full of beautiful people. I met many interesting souls. Aupaya, Raja and John stood out the most being the most impactful on my character and catalysts for the change that would occur within me over the course of weekend within the family of light.
Aupaya was a wandering electronic musician with SuitCase Musik – Magick Solar Suitcase’s Wizards Club. He had a solar powered suitcase with 2 kaosolators, a vocoder, a strum drum machine with a sitar scale, and an mp3 mixer. He can’t use a laptop because it takes too much power for the solar power to supply. He told me he is a student of Advaita Vedanta and he was a devotee of Lord Shiva. He came up with good improve music on the spot and was very funny. He at one point allowed us to ask a question and then he would give an answer. I also like playing this game. After everyone asked their question I asked a question. “What is darkness? Is it merely just the absence of light or is it something much deeper than that?” He didn’t say anything. He continued to play his music as he searched for something on his mp3 player. It was a recording of a ranked devotee talking about the infinity of darkness being a never ending part of everything that is in all matter, all existence and pervades everything. It is absolute chaos which everything derives from, the all existing never ending primordial birthplace of all experiences and existence.” It wasn’t quite like this but I have recorded an audio of the performance. Music is derived out of chaos. We order harmonious sounds together in a mathematical measurement to make it pleasing to our ears and minds. He had a pamphlet he was handing out that had the title of 0=1=infinity. I later asked him, “Shouldn’t it say that 0 is > and = to 1 and 1 is > and = to infinity.” He added that, “0 is > and < and= to 1 and 1 is > and < and = to infinity.” I agreed and we laughed.

I have been attending group activities related to Hinduism in a sect dedicated to a form of Vaishnavism called The International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) and the Hare Krishna Movement.
This sect claims that all that is required to reach liberation during this current age of the Kali Yuga one may chant the holy names Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare. Play musical instruments and drums, dance, sing, Read the holy scriptures Bhagavad-Gita and the Vedas, and eat natural organic vegetarian food called prasadam which is first offered to the deity Krishna by being placed upon the alter in front of him and reciting prayers or mantras where the food is then blessed and then becomes known as prasadam. Krishna is the avatar of Lord Vishnu the preservation and maintenance god of Hinduism and the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
Knowledge refers to devotional service, which consists of nine different activities: hearing, chanting, remembering, serving, worshiping, praying, obeying, maintaining friendship and surrendering everything. By the practice of these nine elements of devotional service one is elevated to spiritual consciousness, Krishna consciousness.
Raja was a grand wizard high priest and was promoting a religious and political party called The Light Party which was a union of the left and the right, the democrats and the republicans, the Christians and the Pagans. He pointed out to me a framed picture in front of his tent of a painting of The Count of Saint Germain. We then started talking about the Theosophical Society, Freemasonry, the Illuminati and various other Ascended Masters. Raja is a Djedhi Gnostic Templar Knight and is very experienced in living life.

“A Djedhi Templar Knight is a member of a tradition that has its roots in ancient Egypt. Like his or her ancient Egyptian predecessors, a Djedhi Templar Knight seeks to Master the Dragon Force while being guided by the intuitive Serpent Wisdom that is always coming from within. A Djedhi Knight is one who has moved the Dj, the inner snake or serpent power, up the Djed Pillar, the spinal column, and into the head in order to fully activate the Third Eye of intuitive, Gnostic Wisdom.”
Raja and I walked around the main stage area after going on a deems adventure and some people saw us, 2 wizards walking around and where like, “Wait, WTF is going on?” Many people came up wanting to speak with us and give us hugs. A woman came up to me to tell me how much she enjoyed my sage energy. I thanked everyone for their company and wished them all safe journeys.

I want to point out the darker aspects of these music festivals and the types of things that happen behind the scenes at parties such as Earthdance.
A man came up to me at one point and told me ”thank you.” I said “for what?” He said, “for giving me hope.”
He went on to tell me that he was John the Baptist and was sent to find me to take me to the Tabolt House so that I could meet a man with Jesus tattooed across his neck and that it was my job as the messenger to convince this man that he was the next coming of CHrist so that John the Baptist could confirm to himself that he was indeed the Ant-Christ. John said that when he tries to do good things something bad always happens as a result of it. He said he didn’t care about morals, hurting people, doing the worst things related to chaos, destruction and violence. He was willing to walk into the white house and kill the president as if that would really change anything. He said that he only strives for sex, pleasure, money, greed, selfishness and violence. He has no love in his heart and truly believed that he was the coming of the Anti-Christ and Satan himself. He highly disturbed me with his strong convictions and was trying to sway me from my path to be like him. He told me that if I went with him that he would do whatever it takes to get money for me to work for me to give me whatever it was that my heart desired. He seemed to desire to make me think that he wanted to be my dirty work goon. I told him that there was nothing in this world I desire but happiness, love, peace and good health. I told him that I didn’t care for great riches, material wealth and power or control through fear tactics. I told him that he was a deceiver and that I would have nothing to do with it. I could not give a ride to a random location for a person I knew I could not trust. Why would I take someone I do not trust to a random location to meet a guy who thinks he needs convincing that he’s the second coming of Jesus. I asked him “What if I’m Jesus?” he said “Then I am the Anti-Christ. There is no way I could ever be like you. I’m lost. I don’t understand or know how to be good.” He said “Look at my feet.” I looked and they were cut, dried out and broken open with bumps and lesions all over them. His face was distorted and I could see expressions of vileness on his face. He had a missing tooth and seemed to be a completely depressed, angry, sad, bitter and miserable being. Anti-Christ told me that I should spend more time going out there trying to get laid instead of spreading the word of God. He said, “Look around you. See how beautiful this world is? You can have anything you want here. Anything you desire you can just go out there and take it for yourself.” I responded, “This world is a land of deceptions and suffering and one may only find temporary comforts of pleasure and sense gratification here. True bliss and pleasure is found within yourself and experienced in the heavenly planets beyond this material world.”
Aupaya noticed him talking to me in the tent as he was sitting in front of his gear on the floor just to the right of Anti-Christ and I was sitting to the right of his gear, as I leaned over to look over at him he noticed me and jumped up in surprise staring back at me. I could tell that the conversation had shocked his consciousness. I looked over at Anti-Christ slightly then back at Aupaya. He could tell we were starting to get uncomfortable.
If I wasn’t sure before I am now 100% convinced that the Devil can manifest himself within human beings and possess their bodies and their minds while attempting to steal and harvest their souls.
I am also 100% convinced that God or Christ can also manifest himself within human beings to lead them and guide them to liberation while helping them to live a good and pure life full of happiness and devotional service to God and devotional service to our fellow brothers and sisters.
The man John the Baptist who was currently engaging me in conversation was literally indeed the Anti-Christ and I was very uncomfortable by his presence as he was trying to deceive me and stray me from my just, righteous and virtuous path.
I did a masonic distress call signal with my hands for help and Raja picked up on it and came over to me to ask me if I would help him with his workshop about The Golden Dolphins. I agreed and said yes. Raja said, “Ok, This priest is going to lead the workshop now until I return.” I agreed I would help him gather and organize the people to hear his message. I asked Anti-Christ if he wanted to stay to hear about the golden dolphins. He handed me a pornographic business card with a naked woman on it and a hotline number and told me “Here… you need this more than I do.” I took the card and put it down with a smile on my face as he got up and walked away giving me a smirk as he looked back.
I then proceeded to speak to the guests introducing myself saying. “Hello, my name is Cyrus. I went to college at HCC and currently have an AA degree. When I first studied chemistry in highschool I learned about how all the atoms of the elements came together to form molecules and those further complex arraignments of chemicals made carbon based life possible such as the human brothers and sisters that we see today. Learning about chemistry was a spiritual experience for me and I consider the teachings and texts about chemistry to be Holy Scriptures of a spiritual teaching of existence and reality. Chemistry evolved from Alchemy which was an ancient form of chemistry at that time in history and was not separate from the mystery teachings of wisdom and philosophy of Hermeticism and Gnosticism and other religious studies.”
I told the students about the Divine and Demoniac natures of men, that I was a devotee of Lord Vishnu and that there are dark forces at work in this world. I proceeded to tell them about what I had just experienced with the Anti-Christ attempting to tempt me into a life of evil. I am a Mono-Polythistic meaning that I believe in the One God and that this God split himself into many personalities or characteristic demi-god architypes. In Hinduism it is believed that there is the One God who split into a trinity known as Brahma the god of creation, Vishnu the god of maintenance and preservation, and Shiva the god of destruction. Each god of this trinity then split themselves into a duality manifesting the feminine counterpart deity to accompany and compliment themselves. Each couple of gods paired up in romantic intimacy to then birth all the lower ranked devas and demi-gods and so on until we fractal down to the human level here on earth. We as humans are halfway from the animal world and halfway taking part in being as the gods are in attempting their pastimes here on earth. It is said that “God made the humans in our image”, “our” meaning that god has a dualistic form while also being androgynous and beyond sex and duality being a monoality. This is related to all beings as all beings have an individual soul and the soul of the Godhead residing within them to animate their bodies. But humans experience self-awareness and consciousness on a level that animals do not and humans have the potential and ability to become very intelligent and cleaver if they apply themselves correctly and can attain a state of liberation from this world through an ascension process of enlightenment known as gnosis.
Raja eventually came back with the texts and I told him about what I had encountered with John. He told me that the Anti-Christ was full of it and that I should say, “I rebuke you demon. You are not welcome in my presence.” while making a sign of a cross in front of them with my hand. We then went to go sit down after I talked with the musicians to inform them of the beginning of the workshop.
He said that the man targeted me because he could tell I was on a noble path and a servant of God and that he wanted to lead me astray away from my current path or perspective will.
Raja said I was a wise man and a priest and that people should take the time to listen to what I have to say to the audience. There are a large number of people within our community who never take the time to actually listen to what I’m saying or the message that I have for them. Even if I am talking with them right to their face sometimes everything I say falls upon deaf ears. To these people I remain silent for effort of words to the ears of the deaf is an effort best spent elsewhere.
Raja said a devotional prayer to the women of the audience to lift up the divine feminine spirits and motherly energies within the environment.
He had a book about golden dolphins and another book about extraterrestrials. He asked us to pick a number 1-9 and then he would read a passage with that number from the book. I picked 8 and there were many positive and enlightening wisdom messages in this text. I was impressed. Near the end we went to a tapestry on the floor with a painting of the earth inside a golden hexagram star with a purple spiral coming off of the earth going outward to the edge of the circle. We stood around the outside edge of the outer circle and then did a ritual where we moved our right hand to the right in a clockwise circle motion around the earth visually from where we were standing and imagined golden dolphins swimming and flying around the earth spreading peace, knowledge, wisdom, enlightenment, happiness and good health to the people of the world.
Near the end of his speech one woman had to go but she expressed how much the beauty of his words and his loving peaceful message had moved her and she began crying as she left.
Holding onto hope in the face of darkness will lead to success.
Abandon all hope ye who enter into the Hells.

Bhagavad Gita – Divine and Demoniac Natures
Chapter 16, Verse 1-3
The Blessed Lord said: Fearlessness, purification of one’s existence, cultivation of spiritual knowledge, charity, self-control, performance of sacrifice, study of the Vedas, austerity and simplicity; nonviolence, truthfulness, freedom from anger; renunciation, tranquility, aversion to faultfinding, compassion and freedom from covetousness; gentleness, modesty and steady determination; vigor, forgiveness, fortitude, cleanliness, freedom from envy and the passion for honor-these transcendental qualities, O son of Bharata, belong to godly men endowed with divine nature.
Chapter 16, Verse 4
Arrogance, pride, anger, conceit, harshness and ignorance-these qualities belong to those of demonic nature, O son of Pṛthā.
Throughout the weekend and on the last day Sunday Kamala and I were passing out magazines with information about Lord Krishna the personality of Godhead and copies of the Bhagavad-Gita holy text and collecting donation money for the Hare-Krishna temple in Tampa, FL. She was doing a very good job explaining the faith and the details of the stories and transcendental pastimes of Lord Krishna. While Kamala was talking to people about the religion someone came by and stole from her the donation money she had been collecting for the temple when she wasn’t looking. After she told me this we both had a moment of tears.
Those who steal funds from a virtuous holy consciousness movement do not have a moral sense of justice of right and wrong. They don’t know what is to be done and what is not to be done. Those who sin against a devotee of the Lord commit a serious offense. Those who steal from devotees of the Lord acquire negative karma for themselves and must take time to repent, reflect upon and make up for the bitterness their actions have inflicted upon the world. One should never try to scam, betray, screw over our out do a priest or priestess of God. It will bring what is called by the tribes to be a great shaming.
There is a holy battle between opposites going on upon the earth and it has been going on for thousands of years. You must all realize this by now.
I met many awesome people who were not so crazy but I also met the Anti-Christ and that was an interesting experience indeed.
If you think everything is all good in the scene then you have no eyes to see and no ears to hear. All those who have ears had better listen. All those who have eyes had better be watching. People have forgotten what agape is. Agape is true love. It is a selfless spiritual and unconditional love that is pure without ego, jealousy, envy or lust. This is the type of love that we need to be manifesting and moving towards not the type of love people have been mistaking as true love for which is controlling, dominating, distrusting, bitter, resentful and distant.
There was another workshop I attended at the festival about an alternative currency and labor system where you have an hour bank. You provide a service for an hour for someone and after your work you earn an hour of service dollar. You can spend the dollar to hire another individual for 1 hour who offers a different type of service that you may not be able to do as easily on your own. This system is great for those wishing to start an art or grassroots community off the grid and wish to move away from the modern U.S. dollar currency system.
With that being said I leave you with this quote from the Bible about the Temptation of Jesus Christ by the Devil Satan.
English Standard Version (ESV)
The Temptation of Jesus
4 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 And after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 And the tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.” 4 But he answered, “It is written,
“‘Man shall not live by bread alone,
but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and set him on the pinnacle of the temple 6 and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written,
“‘He will command his angels concerning you,’
“‘On their hands they will bear you up,
lest you strike your foot against a stone.’”
7 Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.’” 8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to him, “All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me.” 10 Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan! For it is written,
“‘You shall worship the Lord your God
and him only shall you serve.’”
11 Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and were ministering to him.
