Achieving Perfect Health

  I love Bashar.  I relate to him, his perspective and energy, very strongly.  I do not doubt that we are connected in some way, especially now.  So when I ran across this video of him (an audio recording actually, put on YouTube as a video) laying out how to achieve and maintain perfect health (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xguRyNtAy5s), I was stoked.

Now, I myself have accomplished this.  I achieved consistent, robust, vibrant health several years ago, and it has only increased since.  I do not get sick anymore.  I do not suffer aches and pains.  I sleep soundly every single night.  Most days I have more energy than I know what to do with (and the few days I don’t it’s only because of the transmutations happening on this planet at this particular time).  The people I interact with – my much younger wife included – are often baffled, and sometimes even uncomfortable, about this state of affairs.

I only mention this for one simple reason:  I AM living proof of what Bashar states in his talk. Basically, starting almost 20 years ago, I partly intentionally and partly by necessity launched myself into the simple multi-pronged process that he describes.  At the time, I had never heard of this entity, nor had I read or heard any material on health that laid things out so succinctly and effectively.  I just pieced it together somewhat haphazardly from various sources and personal experiences, and then did it.  I immediately started benefitting from the program, though it took me a while experimenting with different aspects to really get it down.  As a result, I can only recall being actually ‘sick’ (not being able to perform my daily activities normally due to fever or diarrhea or some such other ailment, and having to rest often – that’s my personal definition of ‘sick’, as being ‘bed-ridden’ is a situation I have not experienced for at least two decades) two times in the past 18 years, and having two very annoying (but not serious or debilitating) allergies.  I was hospitalized once, but that was caused by a nasty infection caused by my not properly taking care of a small open wound – an injury that I failed to deal with, and so paid the consequences – but that is not ‘sickness’, or lack of health; it is considered a ‘trauma’ in the medical field, which was aggravated by personal stupidity leading to infection.  Physical trauma (ie. accidents, like pulled muscles, cuts, car accidents, burns, broken bones, etc.) is a completely different animal, and is only indirectly related to one’s general state of ‘health’ and vibrancy.

Anyway, please take the 12 minutes to find out exactly and precisely how YOU can achieve ‘perfect health’, and maintain it, by the time the leaves turn their beautiful autumn colors in the state of Vermont this year.  By the way, you now have been provided with the best general information available on the subject – in less time that it takes to do a single yoga session – so you can no longer claim to simply ‘not know’ how to achieve this (and Yes, since I have proven this system myself, I KNOW that it works – the so-called ‘experts’ on health have very different agendas, you see, as a perfectly healthy populace would mean financial ruin for them, of course).  I mean, why would you WANT to continue to live in an unhealthy manner anyway???  I just don’t ‘get’ that self-defeating mentality, nor do I really ‘want’ to either.  That is one perplexing enigma (people refusing to act in ways to maximize their health and enjoyment of life), which after 30 years of deep and intensive personal research, I still haven’t been able to comprehend about most of my fellow human beings. . . . .

Regardless. . . . . .   Once again — as it was, is, and always shall be — every single condition and circumstance that you manifest (experience) in life comes down to one pivotal element:  conscious or unconscious personal CHOICE.  May you choose well!

BUILD YOUR SKYSCRAPER!

Around the time I was in university, taking a class called Ancient Myths And Modern Meaning, I read an old adage:  ‘In order to scale to great heights, you must first plumb the depths.’  Something like that.  I feel it might be related to that other saying about the consciousness-expanding process, ‘You gotta go through hell in order to get to Heaven!’.

In ’06 I made my only visit to New York City.  (I wanted to see it ‘while it was still there’ – modern Rome at its infamous zenith – as I was still a bit of a ‘doom-and-gloomer’ back then).  I was walking down to the waterfront in lower Manhattan, not far from the felled towers, and had to skirt around a massive construction site.  The construction was only in its first or second phase – a full square block hole in the ground (remember, I’m in MANHATTAN!), at least 60 feet deep, maybe much more.  There were giant machines and hundreds of workers all over the place looking like so many oversized ants from my ‘heights’ above on the street level.  I was reminded of something I’d read about construction techniques years earlier.  It had said that, when building skyscrapers, most of the critical and delicate and time-consuming work was done in the beginning, when they actually excavated downwards into the Earth in order to build the foundation for the shooting towers of concrete and steel.  It said that almost the same amount of time was spent below the surface, laying the foundation, than was spent above the street level, to construct the actual skyscraper.  Wow.

Now, to put it into perspective:  To build a thousand-foot skyscraper, they spend the first HALF of their time and effort going down 60-100 feet!  (approximately – I’m no engineer, so please don’t hold me precisely to this).  Fascinating.

‘OK, Waverider, wonderful little tidbit for my next game of Trivial Pursuit —  but so what?  What has that got to do with the price of tea in China?’ you might ask (that’s an old saying my mom used on us a lot growing up).  Well, everything, really.  No, not the specific mechanisms whereby the fair-market retail costs of certain dry herbs are determined in the Far East maybe.  But it speaks to what we ALL go through when we engage the challenging process of self-actualization.

We are at the cusp of an historic shift in our realities.  This Grand Paradigm Shift of the Ages is not simply historic in the ‘four score and seven years ago’ sense, but in the ‘. . .and God created Man in His image and likeness’ sense.  For those who have not begun this process yet, or have tried to begin but seem to keep getting stuck – reaching a certain point and hitting wall after wall after wall – I’d like to express this thought:  IT’S TIME TO GET MOVING, FOLKS!  If you truly want to build yourself (and your Self) a ‘skyscraper’ of self-esteem, self-confidence, integrity, peace, love, joy, and fun – in other words, a life of deep satisfaction and fulfillment and dreams-come-true – then NOW is the time to do it.

In regards to the above metaphor, both my deep research and intense experience in this area point to its veracity:  One must delve deeply into one’s murky subconscious depths of beingness (childhood upbringing, adolescent trauma, pivotal emotional events of early adulthood, unhealed/unforgiven ‘injuries’, hidden roots of a low self-image, etc.), dig up any and all the suppressed, obscure ‘dross’ that has been weighing you down like anchors on a speedboat, and heal that stuff once and for all, in whatever way(s) your personal philosophy can handle:  Offer it up to the Light (or an Archangel, Ascended Master, Guide, Love, Divinity, Christ, etc.); talk to a therapist; do energy work; sign up for a cleansing/purging program; go to group therapy sessions; and/or (one of the most effective tools in my personal experience) practice deep meditation (assisted and/or solo).

Build your skyscraper.  Now.  Please.   With determination, with vigor, and with joy.  There is really, truly nothing better you can do at this moment of history for yourself, your loved ones, our beloved planet, and for ALL.  Dream big, dream wide, dream tall, and then go out – and especially IN – and make it happen!

 

WHO TO TRUST???

Lots of confusion these days.  Chaos will shortly ensue.  So, where does one stand in times like these?  Where can a person place their trust, when the two main opposing forces are disseminating completely contradictory ‘versions’ of reality, accusing each other of duplicity and chicanery and the rest of it, and trying to dupe us ‘dumbed down’ 99% into supporting their ‘side’ over the other?

 Traditional Faith

We were all trained – I mean raised — to do at least ONE thing well:  Trust and obey authority.  Though many of us didn’t abide very well with that training, especially during and after our teenage years, its influence is ubiquitous.  First, our parents.  Then, our teachers and school administrators (especially the dean or ‘student counsellor’, right?).  Then, the so-called law enforcement personnel.  Then, our politicians and government beaurocrats.  Along with all those guys, most of us were expected to accept, part and parcel and without question, the ‘divinely inspired’ word of our preachers and priests and rabbis and ministers.  ‘Pillars of civil society’ one and all, right?  Oh, I can’t forget this very influential little group:  The newscasters.

 Now, should we just continue to trust them???  Well, let’s look at the situation, the FACTS (briefly).

Who exactly has gotten us into this current horrible mess?  Who exactly has, intentionally or not, led us down not only the path to perdition not once, not twice, but continually over the last century or so?  Who, after the economic crash of 2008, has not only failed to ‘fix’ things, but continued to make things worse than they were before, creating more wars, more poverty, more strife, more dissatisfaction and discontent – and simultaneously demonstrating less collective abundance, less responsibility, less guidance, and (critically important here) much less enforcement of the laws that were meant to protect us from the greedy and corrupt sociopaths in our society?  At the same time, who has actually taken away many or most of our God-given (and constitutionally-given) rights and privileges as natural human beings on this once-beautiful planet?

OK.  So regarding this group, the ones we have been TOLD to trust all of our lives, only a single question remains:  Who in this world (or any other) could actually be worse than them???

The Other Side

On the other side of the coin, we have what have been traditionally called ‘conspiracy theorists’.  I prefer to call them, especially these days, ‘conspiracy realists’.  Remember that trippy old movie with Mel Gibson, Conspiracy Theory?  In the beginning of that movie, good ‘ol Mel is spouting off all these crazy theories to his clients in the taxi that he drives for a living.  I distinctly remember one of them as being about a huge earthquake in Turkey just barely missing putting the president of the US in mortal danger while he was visiting there.  If he would have stayed just a few minutes longer on the ground, he probably would have been killed.  When I found out recently that Russia, China, and the US have all apparently had many talks about their ‘weather weapons’ over the last few decades – about not using them against each other – I remembered that part of the movie.  It turns out that too many of those theories Mel was going on about in the movie have turned out to be actually real (or very close to it, like the MK Ultra program the CIA ran that he was a victim of in the movie).  I won’t even touch the stuff he was saying about Area 51 and the ET-secret government connections. . . . .  Funny how art reflects Nature so often – and Nature even reflects art sometimes.

Anyway . . . . . those who have been ‘into’ this stuff for years and decades have been putting out a lot of information about ‘what’s going on around here’.  The movies Zeitgeist, Esoteric Agenda, Kymatica, Thrive, Loose Change, Fahrenheit 9/11, etc., have elucidated many, many aspects of ‘how we got here in the first place’ – and backed up their research with easily verifiable FACTS and links to truckloads of reference material that anybody nowadays can quickly and easily go look up themselves on the internet (unlike people such as, say, Rush Limbaugh or certain ex-presidents, who don’t point to any verifiable facts or documents at all, but just say asinine things like ‘You are either with us, or you are against us.’  What hubris, what gall!  Well, their reckoning is soon acomin’ . . . .).  Anyway, should we trust them in these critical times?

Well, maybe.  Personally, I do NOT trust them or any person 100%.  Why not?  Well, while I feel most of those whistleblowers and conspiracy types definitely DO have our collective best interests at heart, some of them may not.  Some of them may actually be agents of DISinformation for the PTW (Powers That Were, the Cabal, the Illuminati, Team Dark, whatever – those guys).  Also, some of their information may have been purposefully (and unknowingly) ‘fed’ to them by those same agents.  On top of that, some of them are definitely motivated primarily not by compassion for their fellow human beings, but by profit.  Look at how many ‘survival’ groups there are out there, urging all of us to ‘stock up’ on certain things as soon as possible, and as much as possible – oh, and here’s a great web site where you can order your products right away, and get a 20% discount if you pay cash!  Shipped in less than 24 hours with your verified credit card purchase – Order Now! . . . .

The Third Group

There IS another group of people out there gently but firmly vying for your attention.  In the mainstream media, these generally kind-hearted souls are termed the ‘new age’ people, ‘spiritual types’, or just plain ‘nut jobs’ (along with the conspiracy realists, right?  Totally different species, but the same treatment by the MSM.).  These are actually, again generally speaking, the ONLY group to be promoting a much more positive outlook on things.

Archangel Michael

Their information does not come from recently released documents via the Freedom of Information Act, nor SEC paperwork that directly implicates deception and collusion among the banksters, nor recently resigned or fired Wall Street big shots, nor deep-seated whistleblowers who have come out of the closet to reveal the once-secret shenanigans of our ‘leadership’, nor even ex-astronauts or military pilots who have revealed their personal experiences with things that officially ‘do not exist’.  No.  Some of that ‘alternative’ info may be discussed or referred to in their writings, but is not THE most important aspect of their messages.  Their information comes from what they claim are ‘non-human’ sources:  Angels, ETs, Ascended Masters, Jesus, Mary (both, Mother and Magdalen), God, or various groups of Higher Dimensional Beings.  Though they are the ones least assertive, and definitely least offensive, of the three groups, these people tend to receive the most hostility from others, especially conservative religious groups (though they often coincide in their ‘beliefs’ and fundamental philosophies).  Interesting, isn’t it?

The Final Authority

Just recently, I ran across something the inimitable Albert Einstein wrote:  ‘The Intuitive Mind is a sacred gift, and the rational mind is a faithful servant.  We have created a society that honors the servant, and has forgotten the Gift.’

Wow.  That is beautiful, isn’t it?  And profoundly accurate, in my humble opinion.  I wrote an article last year about the tragic mistake Western philosophy made when it ‘split’ science from spirituality, a la Descartes (see the wonderful and witty explanation in the science documentary What The Bleep Do We Know?, available to watch free on YouTube.).  It appears that the father of modern physics agreed wholeheartedly with that sentiment.

Yes, the Gift.  THIS is what I personally recommend, after decades of deep thought, reading, reflection, research, and hard-core experience, all under very challenging circumstances.  DISCERNEMENT is the key to wading through the morass of information now being poured into our world from every conceivable source.  Higher Discernment specifically.  Use your Intuitive Mind, folks!  Go within.  This IS ‘The Secret’, you see, the answer we all have sought since time immemorial.  Use your God-given Gift!  NOW is the time to do that, to ‘go there’, OK?

Our world is about to explode into utter chaos and confusion — for those who don’t yet know what is really going on at least (that’s still most of humanity, of course).  Most people will not have a friggin’ clue as to what’s going down or, more importantly, who to listen to for helping to define the ‘new reality’.  So stop looking already!  You have, and have always had, the Final Authority within you, you see.  Use it!  Screw anybody who tells you that the rational mind is King and Savior, and that you shouldn’t consider your Inner Voice as anything more than fantasy or delusion or spiritual mumbo-jumbo (or even clinical insanity).  As kindly and diplomatically as you can, simply inform them that you prefer to side with ALBERT EINSTEIN and JESUS (‘The Kingdom of Heaven is within you’) and THE BUDDHA (see quote below), rather than go with what their very materialistic and negative and fearful ‘rational mind’ is telling them is ‘best’.

If you’ve never gone within, never meditated deeply, do it now.  Please.  If not for yourself, for your friends, associates and loved ones.  It will not only calm you down, and reduce your fear and anxiety, and make you feel better about things, and get you in touch with your True Self (hopefully – that may take a few tries) – it may even save your life.  And your Life.  I mean, if Jesus, Mahatma Gandhi, the billions of devout Hindus and Buddhists, martial arts masters, adepts, monks of all creeds (including Christians, of course), and every single yoga instructor on the planet swear by it, shouldn’t you at least give it a try??? 

Take care, strive to remain calm and centered, be discerning, and above all try to en-JOY this Great Awakening we are all experiencing together.  Namaste.

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.   ~ Buddha ~

What lies ahead of you and what lies behind you is nothing compared to what lies within you. – Mohandas K. Gandhi

DEFINITIONS OF STYLE

I was reading an article the other day, part of a daily collection of interesting and very current offerings put together and e-mailed out by The 2012 Scenario.  It was called The Unknown Lightworker – The Lightwarrior.  The title intrigued me, so I read it.  I’m glad I did, as it spelled something out for me that I could never quite put my finger on, something about myself, and the way I express things to others that I feel are very important for them to understand (for all of us to understand, of course, including myself – and apply in our daily lives as much as possible).  This is especially relevant now, in these exceptionally uncertain and chaotic times.

Here are the most germane excerpts:

* * * * * * * * *

‘Everyone in the new age/spiritual scene is familiar with what a lightworker is….

Lightworkers…. Those who soothe the soul, inspire the masses, heal the mind and/or body, and teach seekers the ways of truth and light. Lightworkers do their functions both in public and private, and are those beautiful souls that are sought when there is another in need. Their methods are mostly gentle, nurturing, encouraging, empowering, or enabling in nature. The lightworker sees the beauty in all things, all the time.

What is unknown though, until now, is the “hidden” lightworker that you may have seen from time to time. . . . . Seeming cold, logical, and often times seeming negative, they are often misunderstood and disliked among the lightworker community.

Lightwarriors… Those who make known all sides of any given issue or topic. Those who defend and fight for light and truth, either in the earth or astral realms. Those who restore, fight for, and keep balance in all things. Lightwarriors can and often do those things that lightworkers do as well, but most often in a closed and one-on-one setting, and methods used may differ than those of most light workers. The lightwarrior methods may include the diplomatic but direct approach, bluntly honest in nature, but offering encouragement and support where needed and warranted. The lightwarrior approach may range from gentle and nurturing to a more intense, empowering “tough love” approach. Lightwarriors are aware of both sides of the coin, and defends the light by making all sides of an issue known, no matter how unpleasant or controversial.

The lightwarrior respects all paths and beliefs, but is quick to jump to the forefront of things if there is something important to be said. Often times the message the lightwarrior brings is against the grain, against the fabric of what most lightworkers believe or hold.

Lightwarriors tend to be intense, often appearing to lack love and compassion, and speak from the viewpoint of blatant honesty, no matter how blunt or controversial.

The Defender of Truth… This is the type of lightwarrior that tends to draw the most fire. The defender of truth knows that truth itself is highly subjective, each having its own meaning to those experiencing it. What is truth for one person might not be truth to another. The highly subjective nature of truth, and the infinite ideas that truth represents, provide a unique challenge to the lightwarrior. The lightwarrior speaks ideas to the masses whenever he/she sees an area of concern that needs to be addressed.

The lightwarrior knows that not all lightworkers have the same level of discernment, and is aware that with the subjective nature of truth, his/her ideas may not resonate with all, and is therefore left open to attack by those of whom his/her words may not resonate. The defender of truth’s style of speaking may vary from lightwarrior to lightwarrior, but often times it is the bold and upfront approach taken by some that tend to inspire one group of lightworkers, while drawing reproach from others. Many times those in support of the lightwarrior will voice their words in private, while those against the lightwarrior will voice their opinions publicly. This tends to give the appearance that the lightwarrior is speaking to an empty room, and sometimes leaves their credibility in question.  This is a risk the lightwarrior is aware of, and is willing to take in the name of the Greater Good for ALL.

Sometimes, there are some perfectly balanced lightworkers who are a perfect balance between the lightworker and lightwarrior, carrying within them traits of both.’

* * * * * * * * *

This last characterization/description is what I strive to BE, incorporating the love and empathy and upbeat attitude of the typical Lightworker, with the distinctly less ‘warm and fuzzy’, more ‘just deal with it’ style of the Lightwarrior – which is what I most definitely AM still best defined as (for now).  Some of those descriptive words and phrases up there in that article have been used to describe me!  (Which is why I highlighted them.).  It’s not always pleasant, believe me, especially if it’s someone you really love and care for.  Both I and my ideas get attacked constantly, more often the former – it’s a lot easier for many less educated/researched/experienced, emotional-driven people to simply attack the messenger than to have a civil, orderly discussion of the concepts it seems.  You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink — especially if it’s trying to kick you in the head!  Sometimes trying to help people can be downright dangerous . . . . .

Anyway, I may not like the impressions that people get of me sometimes about the stuff I write, and/or my particular style, but I can’t argue with them either.  I admit I can be ‘blunt’, ‘insensitive’, ‘pushy’, ‘direct’, ‘undiplomatic’, or even ‘asinine’ on occasion with the direct manner in which I present information.  But I can take it, you see.  It used to get to me, but no longer.  I feel, to the very core of my Being, that it is very, very important that people open their minds to a greater understanding of things in our Universe – NOW.  I don’t claim to know all the answers, no way.  But the things I DO ‘know’ have been vetted, proven, demonstrated, and ‘tried by fire’ enough times in my personal direct experience that it would take a professor of many disciplines, AND a veteran of many extreme experiences, to even begin to be able to successfully dissuade me from my conclusions.  It’s happened, of course, enough to let me know that I definitely do NOT have ‘all the answers’.  But not often, and not lately.  Thank the Multiverse I do NOT debate subjects, or even write about those, with which I do not have years of learning and direct experience with.  There is a LOT of stuff that I simply don’t know much about at all – but, unlike many, I have a strong enough self-esteem to readily admit that.

Anyway, I really appreciate this article because it makes clear, as I believe only ‘one of us’ can, that our intentions as ‘Lightwarriors’ are just as ‘pure’ as any other Lightworker’s (if not more than some of them), AND that our deepest motivation comes not from any feelings of ‘arrogance’, or attempts at forceful compliance with our ‘version’ of the very subjective lower realities (yikes!), but from a really, really, really powerful desire to get the information/message through – and/or prevent somebody, or a group of people, from making a tragic, pivotal mistake in their thought process, logic, analysis, or perceptionsThe term ‘tough love’ is precisely accurate.  Whatever works, right?  There just isn’t any time left to mess around.

For future reference, please keep in mind the following advice from the author when dealing with me, and other Lightwarriors out there.  I’d really appreciate it a LOT! . . . .

* * * * * * * * *

‘So the next time you find yourself in a confrontation in someone with a differing opinion, whether it is in a forum, a chatroom, or in a real life situation, take a minute to think before speaking. Is this person worthy of your attack? Their idea may not resonate with yours, or they may be a bit too blunt or arrogant for your taste. Take a minute to absorb what this person says, as sometimes they carry a warning that could save you time and trouble down the line.  Lightwarriors have no less love than lightworkers, they just express it in different ways. Keep this in mind before you pass judgment.’

I’MMMMMMM BACK!

My vacation is over!  EVERYBODY’S vacation is over it appears.  There is a LOT happening on this little blue planet this week, pretty radical and fundamental stuff, and all of us lightworkers (or ‘lightwarriors’ in my case — next post will explain) are being called up into service for our final ‘push’ into . . . . whatever is coming.  It’s ‘GO TIME’, people!

Fortunately, this SHALL be the truly final episode of this multi-millenial drama, the final installment of the Grand Theater of Life on Planet Earth in 3D.  Finally.  I’m glad, because our collective ‘vacation’ after this next few weeks or months — however long the deep purge and ‘reset’ takes to accomplish — shall be so fantastic that I believe the old Star Trek episode of their trip to the ‘vacation planet’ (where all their thoughts — whether fantasies or nightmares — instantly materialized) will pale in comparison!  . . . . . On the positive side, of course.  No worries!.

So grab your etheric surfboards and jump right in, dudes, ’cause this is going to prove to be the ride of a thousand lifetimes. ¡Cowabunga, baby . . . . .!
