With the movie “Troy”, by Wolfgang Petersen, playing everywhere, were Brad Pitt plays Achilles, we present comments focusing on a person who was one of the most important figures in the development of events and yet almost unknown, Cassandra.
Helen was extremely beautiful; she had this very attractive type of beauty that could immediately seduce those not on their guard. She was married to the rich and powerful Menelaus. This kind of woman is easily attracted by richness and power. But her life was getting monotonous. How could she feel realized in a marriage driven by self-interest and convenience?
At that point Paris appeared, young and handsome. Helen was never kidnapped; she seduced Paris and induced him to bring her to Troy.
Paris dismissed from his mind the warnings given by his sister Cassandra. With her clairvoyance she was prepared to help to avoid the destruction of Troy, a city beloved by the Elemental Beings, God’s servants, who were connect by love to those brave heroes from Troy.
Paris didn’t want to listen to his intuition, bringing to Troy the attractive and dangerous woman. In doing this, he attracted upon Troy the hate of Menelaus and of the other princes, who took the opportunity as an excuse to rob and vandalize the rich and prosperous city.
Many times Cassandra also warned her father, king Priamos, about the need to take Helena back in order to avoid the destruction of Troy.
About the same time that Moses had undertaken his mission of liberation, Cassandra in ancient Greece, had also prepared herself for the thorny mission of warning Troy of its terrible fate. This became necessary because of the failure of the king's sons, who had caused the disappearance of the proud Troy instead of strengthening the kingdom with wisdom and dignity.
It came to pass that, because of this failure that had been caused by arrogance and vanity, Cassandra, was obliged to foresee nothing but tragic and depressing visions and convey them as a warning to the royal family and the people. But, instead of addressing the cause of their misdeeds in order to avoid misfortune, they rebelled against the clairvoyant and made her mission much more agonizing.
Cassandra announced that the misfortune would happen and that one of the king's sons was to blame for it. Due to his arrogance and vanity, he refused to recognize his fault. Under Helena's spell, he committed one mistake after another and led the whole people to misfortune.
And, nothing but misfortune is left when one thinks about Cassandra. Unfortunately, her name has been often used to represent those who present a pessimistic scenario for humanity.
“A new day brings a new horror! Woe to you, Helena, for you have dared put your foot in the palace. Woe to you, son of Priamos, who will unleash the worst fate upon Troy. Now, everyone is to leave this place - all of those who can still cheer up with the Sun. Gods shall send down misfortune. Zeus himself is angry. You have abandoned a king; someone else shall deprive the sons. Helena, heartless beauty, what do you seek here?”
The wonderful gift Cassandra had been given was not interpreted aright because the human beings of that time found an outlet for their wickedness and took her wrongly when the future that was shown to them was that of misfortune alone. However, due to their stubbornness, the king's sons did not accept responsibility for their acts and allowed misfortune to fall upon Troy, which was completely destroyed in the process.
Too late, Paris recognized his mistakes; he was deeply disappointed with Helena, woman without a soul, beauty without a heart, who had dared to ask him to murder Achilles and to bring her his head. “We cannot dishonor a hero in this way! Forgive me for what my lack of prudence brought upon us. For loving an unworthy woman I’ve caused this war to start.
So, Cassandra’s name was linked to those tragedies which could have been avoided by the acceptance of her warnings. It is in this way her life was recorded in human history and retransmitted through the book “Histórias de Tempos Passados” (History of Past Eras), published by “Ordem do Graal na Terra”, which rescue her image and heroic mission.
But still there are questions: Why Cassandra? Why Troy?
“Troy should have raised itself to be a model to other peoples, to inspire them, to bring them to the recognition of the right way, what would lead their existence, in peace and harmony, through joyous activities to the recognition of the Laws in Creation.”
Answer by Roselis Von Sass in “The Book of the Last Judgment”, pages 233 to 236.
“Again, with reference to Apollo, many spirits that were part of Lucifer's elected group approached human women preferably disguised as Apollo. Once, one of these evil spirits approached young Cassandra (the Trojan King Priamo's daughter). He introduced himself as Apollo several times and pretended to be in love with her. Cassandra, who was closely linked to the Divine Love and also possessed the God-given gift of clairvoyance, was hated by each and every one of Lucifer’s servants.
Lucifer's principle was addressed against God's Love! And, the radiation of Love was anchored within Cassandra! That is why she was dangerous! Soon, she would have to be either withdrawn or annihilated…
The evil spirit disguised as Apollo that approached Cassandra expected to somewhat easily subdue her soul. He had assumed that she would not resist Apollo, the Lord of the solar star, since the solar rays were somehow equally linked to Divine Love…
Cassandra was not an ordinary earthly woman. She was neither conceited nor superficial. As soon as the deceitful Apollo began to court her, she intuitively felt an inexplicable, repulsive feeling and suddenly refused to accept him. Her heart was appalled, and she felt icy contempt whenever he approached her…
In those days, young Cassandra's had already been developing her unusual gift of clairvoyance. The misfortune that was about to strike her people could not remain concealed any longer.There was still enough time to prevent the unfortunate event if measures were taken right away.
But, nothing was done. Her father, Priamos, was willing to take her visions and warnings seriously and act accordingly. However, her mother, Hekuba, who exerted great influence upon her father, did exactly the opposite: she adamantly forbade Cassandra to bother others with her prophecies. And, in case her mother’s orders were not obeyed, Cassandra would be put in prison.
Hekuba was a powerful woman. Cassandra was forced to remain silent while she watched how the enemy subdued Troy and killed the best Trojan heroes in combat.
In fact, there were three women, whose souls were under the influence of Darkness, who became the instruments on Earth which, not only caused the fall of Troy, but also young Cassandra's terrible death…
The first one was the conceited Helena, supposedly the daughter of Zeus. She was the wife of the Spartan King Menelaus. She was responsible for instigating the war against Troy because her vanity had been hurt.
The second woman was Hekuba. If she had listened to her daughter Cassandra’s warnings in time, Troy could have been saved.
The third one was Clytemnestra,the wife of the King Agamemnon of Mycenae . When Cassandra was arrested and taken to Mycenae, this diabolical woman, confined her alive in a tower. Lucifer's victory could not have been more complete. While Cassandra was walled up and awaited death, the real Apollo appeared to her. Neither did he arise in a fictitious halo, nor did he approach her inside a grotto in the garden at her father’s house, as the false Apollo had. This is because none of the enteals (elemental beings) can ever present themselves in this way (). Even without his halo, Apollo has something radiant that enwraps him. All of those who see him intuitively feel a blissful joy for living, which ascends like a prayer of gratitude in praise of the Creator.
Cassandra felt immensely happy to see him. She was, joyful and also grateful. She even forgot about the horrifying prison she was in. At that particular moment, she also realized that Apollo had already been around her many times during her childhood. Furthermore, he had also been one of those who had come to add a little happiness to her lonely upbringing. Not only did Apollo stay near Cassandra until her earthly passing, but so did other enteals (elemental beings). These helpful and comforting elemental beings made her forget the dreadful place she had been put in.
Heroism came to an end when the Trojan War ceased. The countless heroes that still existed at that time in Sparta, Troy, Mycenae, and other domains, had let themselves be seduced by superficial women who had been obscured by power and induced them into unworthy wars. The “beautiful Helena” had instigated the war; likewise, Clytemnestra had coerced Agamemnon to take part in the combat against Troy. She had actually wished to have been left alone with her lover inside Mycenae's palace. As for the Trojan heroes, most of them did not realize that they had allowed themselves to fall under the influence of female worshipers of Lucifer, who always encouraged them to get involved in new romantic adventures.
The gods showed their anger at the softness of the heroes, who had become so base that any fallen woman, no matter whether here or in the beyond, had the power of influencing them. The gods were so infuriated that they completely abandoned their heroes. Formerly, these gods had guided all the heroic earthly men and had strengthened them! When their protected ones had to raise their sword for a fair cause, they were always by their side, leading them to victory. But, heroes who had gained nothing but stupidity and presumption had become repugnant to them. Day by day, humankind became increasingly disgusting to them…
Now and then, the giant Pallas arose in the sky at night. He held a human head at the tip of his extended arm. The head looked like it was entirely formed by serpents. His other hand threatened the Earth with a clenched fist. Those who looked up in dismay at the giant holding the serpent head were frightened, and they trembled in fear at such a sight. But, they were more afraid of his fist than anything else… Other times, as soon as the Sun set in the horizon at dusk, the goddess Athena would also arise. She stood as tall as a tower, between Heaven and Earth, and, just as Pallas did, held a human head with serpents coming out of it…
“Athena is furious,” the human beings would righteously exclaim! Everywhere in Greece, as well as in Asia, women who were overcome by bad premonitions would gather together to ponder over how they could have goddess Athena’s benevolence back…. At the same time, there were many who scoffed at the goddess with threatening fists as they underwent their perverse outburst of rage.
Like many other elemental beings, Athena had turned away from human beings. She had formerly awakened a noble and proud concept of womanhood and had once given women dignity and sovereign greatness… But the time for that had already passed. There was no more interest, neither in legitimate womanhood, nor in charity, kindness, or love for the truth, the sense of beauty, and all other virtues that had once made a woman the resplendent being within Subsequent Creation…
When the Trojan War broke out, one could rarely find a woman upon the whole Earth who still honored Athena's name.”
The modern woman, who sincerely wants to be faithful to womanhood, must develop her abilities to the maximum.
It’s magical when a woman really fulfills her task inside her home; she brings serenity and benefit to her close family first, physically and psychologically and, in spreading around, she promotes global peace. She has the power to create heaven or hell inside the home.
But the man shouldn’t be despotic or messy, he should respect her way of managing the house and, when possible, he should help in every way possible. Also, husbands and wives shouldn’t make one another’s work more difficult.
The wonderful gift Cassandra had been given was not interpreted aright because the human beings of that time found an outlet for their wickedness and misunderstood her when the future that was shown to them was only one of misfortune. However, due to their stubbornness, the king's sons did not act responsibly and allowed misfortune to fall upon Troy, which was completely destroyed in the process.
When Paris refused to take Helena back to the king Menelaus, refusing to listen to Cassandra’s demands, in sorrow she covered up her face with a black veil, because she new that Troy’s fate was sealed.
