LEAVING DISTRACTIONS BEHIND

LEAVING DISTRACTIONS BEHIND

CNN Presenter

Distractions abound

Both inside and out

Why is it so trying, so hard

To ignore them, opt out?

Bombings, wars and earthquakes

Financial crises and chemtrails

The MSM news outlets

Work to keep us biting our nails

The Masters of Mass Control

They have their hands on the knobs

The arrogance of centuries

Makes them unapproachable SOBs

But they suffer, too!

In their lack of love, and of joy

Their ‘priorities’ blind them

To what many of us now know and enjoy

But Oh! how trying it is

To turn away from their noise

When most people around us

Believe them, but not their own Inner Voice

Our family and friends, too

Though ‘meaning well’ I admit

Try to rein in our Light

Get us our ‘craziness’ to quit

Our libidinal urges as well

Ever powerful, most basic

Tempt us down egoic paths

Those physical pleasures — so magnetic!

The glamorous social life of the ‘hip’

We’ve been carefully programmed to follow

Makes the need to disconnect from ‘the show’

Somewhat bitter to swallow

You see, we’ve all been deceived

By so many distractions

To prevent our longings for Freedom and Love

From getting translated into real-world actions

Like building communities on mutual respect

Unity Consciousness, compassion and caring

Leaving behind separation, competition and greed

Embracing universal abundance, joy and bliss-sharing

I myself still often struggle

As you may have noticed in my blog

It’s not easy to turn away completely

Pull your mud-caked feet out of the bog

I apologize for those lapses

When I drew attention to the negative crap

I was just trying to help more sleeping Souls awaken

From their rather unpleasant duality nap

But look! The New Earth awaits us!

She’s emerging right now!

Just got to ignore those pesky distractions

From both within and without

We have lots of help in this venture

As True Masters abound

For those just waking up to the trickery of ages

Lots of assistance can be easily found

If we hold fast to the Truth,

Our New Reality, Divinity Rising

The distractors can’t sway us

From manifesting NOW the Golden Age of Gaia

So buckle up, people

The Great Transition has begun

As we leave the distractions behind

. . . . And dive into the FUN!

REALITY, ILLUSION, and THOUGHTS OF GENIUS

What most people think of ‘reality’ has clearly been proven, by award-winning, professional, mainstream scientists, to be complete illusion.

EVERYTHING IS ENERGY image

Every single physicist, and biologist and medical doctor as well, understands that what we think we see ‘out there’ in the ‘material world’ is, quite simply, a highly-filtered summation of an interpretation of a bewildering stream of electrical signals that come into our brains from the nerve endings in our eyes, our noses, our skin, and our ears.  This is something I learned decades ago in my own university education.  A bit later, I ran across the explosive book The Tao of Physics, a seminal work by the insightful  physicist Fritjof Capra that explains in great detail the similarities between the then-groundbreaking work in modern quantum physics and ancient mystic thought on how our Universe is structured.  So when a person close to me sent me this link the other day (below), a huge smile spread out across my face as I appreciated with joy how those past personal discoveries of mine have been put out even farther into the public domain, where many thousands or millions more can make their own liberating discoveries, and further empower themselves to improve their personal realities, after accepting for themselves how malleable and flexible and shapeable their individual worlds not only can be, but truly ARE.

Isn’t it just beautiful symmetry when the ‘hard-core materialist scientists’ and the ‘airy-fairy ethereal mystics’ completely agree on the fundamental nature of reality???  It is from among THESE erudite luminaries, all acknowledged internationally renowned masters in their respective fields, that I have derived my guidance, my inspiration – and many ‘facts’ – that continue to fuel my ever-deepening understanding of what Life is really about.  This information, though maybe not ‘perfect’ in every single detail, is what should be taught in our educational systems instead of the antique, hopelessly inadequate and inaccurate Newtonian-era science that gets mercilessly pounded into our minds as ‘absolute fact’ (which changes, of course, with each new discovery in physics – so which ‘fact’, from which year and textbook, is the ‘absolute’ one then?).  A proper, more ‘realistic’, more open and more modern curriculum would avoid many, many, many fractious discussions about the true nature of reality that I, unfortunately, have been forced to engage in over the years, defending myself and my ‘crazy ideas’ against what can only be characterized as emotionally-charged ignorance, and even violent denial.  Why do most people feel so deeply threatened when confronted with information that contradicts their delicate, outdated belief systems?

Lennon Quote -- The More Real You Get

But back to the conclusions of the luminaries . . . . .  As one truly great mind put it, ‘Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.’  And from the same mind comes this:  ‘The important thing is not to stop questioning.’  And this:  ‘The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.’ –  Who made these enigmatic statements about ‘reality’ and the most effective and intelligent approaches towards discovering its nature?  Who else but the inimitable genius of Mr. Albert Einstein . . . . .

EINSTEIN, color spectrum, blk bkgrd

I’ll side with him on these ‘touchy’ issues any day.  Period.  Why wouldn’t I?  Why doesn’t everyone? . . . . . .  We may never know the answer to that last question.  No matter (lol).  Regardless, if you happen to run across one of those ‘aggressively ignorant’ types who think they know more about the nature of reality than not only you, but Mr. Einstein, you now have a nice little blurb you can send them – without saying a single word yourself – that may (hopefully) not only set them straight, but also get them to wake up a little bit more to the Grand Illusion that they still so desperately cling to, understand better where you have been ‘coming from’ lately, and maybe even decide to join us ‘airy-fairy types’ in openness and hope and excitement as we transcend, shift and consciously mold our ever-new collective reality, moving rapidly and inexorably towards discovering, finally, what is truly Real.  The more the merrier!

Here are a few more jewels of wisdom from the Einstein treasure trove of enlightened thought, that may open more doors and windows in those stuffy, shut down, horribly stressed minds out there searching desperately for the answer to the simple but pivotal question, ‘What the heck is going on around here?!’:

 There is no logical way to the discovery of these elemental laws. There is only the way of intuition, which is helped by a feeling for the order lying behind the appearance.

 The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.

EINSTEIN - with tongue outWe shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive.

We should take care not to make the intellect our god; it has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality.

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.

To raise new questions, new possibilities; to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.

There comes a time when the mind takes a higher plane of knowledge but can never prove how it got there.

 Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.

We still do not know one thousandth of one percent of what Nature has revealed to us.

Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character.

 The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.

 The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once!EINSTEIN laughing

The high destiny of the individual is to serve rather than to rule.

The process of scientific discovery is, in effect, a continual flight from wonder.

The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.

There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.

True religion is real living; living with all one’s soul, with all one’s goodness and righteousness.

Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.

When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than any talent for abstract, positive thinking.

When the solution is simple, God is answering.

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That’s relativity!

Food For Thought: The Pot IS Boiling!

The ‘temperature’ of our Earthly environment is at ‘full boil’ now.  When a pot of water is boiling, what happens to the molecules of liquid that stubbornly resist their logical transformation into vapor, not only not go with the flow, but deny that there even exists a flow at all?  Why do they not join in the fun, and float effortlessly and peacefully above the roiling maelstrom below, moving happily beyond the pot along with the majority of their fellow water molecules?  What happens to those who continue to claim that ‘nothing major is happening’, cling to the status quo of gravity-restricted pot dwelling, and refuse to allow their natural transmutation into a higher-vibrational state of BE-ing, fighting the process every step of the way?  I don’t know exactly.  Do you?

Food for thought indeed.  A veritable feast for deep thought, ¿verdad?  Well, as I’ve written in what is now the past, each sovereign individual ‘water molecule’ has the right, actually the responsibility, to choose for itself its own unique path, and its timing as well (until the experience of time actually runs out, of course).  No judgment, no blame, no reason to fret.  All is as it should be, and each shall manifest its personal destiny according to its own unique plan – regardless of how strenuously one hopes and wishes and desires that ALL their fellow water molecules just let go and fulfill their ultimate, unavoidable evolution/transmutation into . . . . . . something more peaceful and fulfilling and pleasurable — and MUCH more exciting!

From JOY I come.  In JOY I live.  To JOY I now surrender all that I do, all that I feel, all that I AM. . . . . .  EnJOY the feast!

IDENTITY CRISIS

Ever hear the phrase, ‘We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, but spiritual BEings having a human experience’?  Still wonder what that really means?  What IS a so-called ‘human being’ anyway?

Statue w Light, Lotus Woman

Maybe this will help. . . .  Here on Earth/Gaia, we are ‘made up of’ two fundamental aspects:  Spirit (also Soul or Divine Essence, which we share in Oneness with All That Is), and Ego (body/lower mind/personality — our ‘vehicle’ here in the lower material realms).  No body = no ego = no 3D ‘personality’.  In other words, these ‘lower aspects’ form an inextricable complex together so that we can ‘navigate’ through time and space in the lower dimensions.  Without going into detail, I’ll just say that Yes, we do carry over from one life to another to another (in ‘time’ of course, which doesn’t actually exist) the heaviest ‘imprints’ from our 3D experiences, the deepest psycho-emotional traumas and ecstasies.  Some people call them ‘lessons’ as well, which we can then retain on a Soul level as a ‘knowing’.  But those deep impressions, or ‘issues’, are ephemeral, and are now being ‘resolved’ (or not) as the process we are immersed in races on at breakneck speed through a collapsing space-time bottleneck.  Regardless, they are not part of our Eternal Divine Aspect.  So much for keeping it simple, lol . . . . .

Sooooo . . . . . .  Which aspect of being ‘human’ do you claim as your Primary Identity???  Spirit or Matter?  Love and Unity Consciousness — OR the transient illusions of the material world and its strictly time-and-space-dependent Separation Consciousness?  It makes ALL the difference, you see, in every single aspect of life.  No exceptions.  Why?  Because, based on which part of your human be-ing you identify with, you determine which aspect you are going to ‘work for’ and ‘cater to’ in your day to day life – the physical, separate ego-self; or the grander, eternal, All-inclusive Higher Self.  Pretty simple, no?

I hope this helped shed some Light on this very sensitive, confusing subject.  BE well!  Oh, and when in doubt about what to do, or how to be,  I give you the most successful tool I learned to utilize in my life (though not the easiest to use, no way):  Follow your bliss. . . . .

Just Be LOVE . . . .

Ah, the deep, fundamental, pivotal questions we are grappling with these days. . . . .  What do we ‘do’ now, given that the Big Shift at the end of last year did not immediately ‘save’ us from the Cabal/Illuminati/Controllers, and our space brethren didn’t whisk us away on fancy lightships to our Galactic family reunions in 5D?  Should we demonstrate and rally in the streets, or just meditate and visualize ourselves into freedom?  Do we only work on and in our Inner World, or also act assertively in the ‘outer world’ as well in order to break the chains that bind us in Illusion and economic slavery?  What to do, what not to do. . . .. To be or not to be. . . .

Well, I personally am going to do my best – ie., put forth my best effort, re-Mind myself as often as possible, etc. — to stick to the simplest and highest vibrational mantra I’ve ever run across, one that sooooo many have mentioned over the last century in myriad forms:  All we need is Love!

All You Need Is Love

‘But wait a sec, Waverider, I agree wholeheartedly’, you say.  ‘But what do we then DO with our lives???’  Well. . . . just BE that.  BE Love!  It IS What We Are at our Core, is It not?  Holographic Sparks of Divinity with only a small part of our Infinite Consciousness immersed in the illusion of separation and duality . . . . . right?

LoveCreatedMeLikeItself

So how does this concept translate into ‘action’, you ask?  Well, according to what I’ve found in my research, here is my best answer:  In every hour of every day, strive as best you can (and this IS very challenging, I admit), when making decisions about things in the course of your daily life, to answer this very fundamental question:  ‘What would Love do?’  I mean, can it get any simpler than that???

For a very different, much more assertive, but not totally unrelated perspective, this short video conveys the idea in a more socially impactful manner:

Love as ‘The Silver Bullet’

Best of fortune with whatever you decide works best for YOU, my fellow ascending humans!

Things Learned The Hard Way

I read this humorous and provocative list today, and just couldn’t help posting it on my blog for a slight change of pace.  I hope it gives you a good laugh, lightens up your day a bit, and also provides you with some ‘food for thought’ (an option for that at least).  EnJOY!!!  (Note:  I have shortened the list a little, leaving out a couple of the more serious, not-so-funny admonitions). 

Things Learned The Hard Way

From a weekly newsletter published by http://www.strangecosmos.com/

 1. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

2. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be “meetings.”

3. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.

4. You should not confuse your career with your life.

5. Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance!

6. Never lick a steak knife.

7. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.

8. You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight savings time.

9. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she’s pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.

10. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age eleven.

11. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above-average drivers.

12. A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person.

13. Your real friends love you anyway.

 

STOPPING THE MIND-CHATTER

I’ve been reading a lot lately about how much trouble people are having with their incessant mind-chatter.  It is proving extremely difficult for many of you to stem the constant flow of ‘noise’ that your ego-mind seems to love to generate, keeping you distracted with superficial material concerns and interpersonal dramas, while keeping your attention away from the really important things in life.  Since I was able to stop my own mind-chatter – consciously and completely – many years ago, maybe I can be of some assistance here by sharing my most effective technique with you (mentioned in one of my previous posts back in December, here).

It’s really, really, really simple.  And btw, the original statement actually comes from the Christian Bible, so not even the most conservative among you should have any ‘issues’ with it (though your fear-ridden ego may try to convince you otherwise).  This is what you do:  When the ridiculous chatter has you batty, just make this statement in your head, using as assertive and confident a tone as you can muster . . . .

‘BE STILL, AND KNOW, I AM LOVE!’

That’s it. That’s all you need to do.  In the beginning, you will probably need to repeat this ‘mantra’ several times before it becomes effective.  With time, however, it will succeed in stopping that annoying little voice in your head immediately with the first firm utterance.  Eventually, you’ll find (like I did) that just having the thought of making the statement, or the desire to quiet your mind, will be enough to make it so.  The verbal statement becomes completely internalized and ‘assumed’, you see, and therefore unnecessary.

You can also ‘customize’ this statement for specific situations or purposes.  Try replacing the word ‘Love’ with one of the following, depending on your desired effect or result:   Spirit . . . Joy . . . Worthy . . . Fun . . . Light . . . Confident . . . . Safe . . . . Happy . . . . Good.  Follow your Inner Guidance, and play with it!  Whatever works best, right?

FYI, the original statement (from the Bible, remember) uses the word ‘God’ — which is what I myself used, and very successfully so, for this amazingly effective technique (before my ‘customizing’ began that is).  I understand, however, that many people out there may take serious issue with this Truth, and so will not even try it out.  This is why I have presented it in this manner.  Hopefully you can quickly arrive at the place of Self-knowledge and Self-esteem to be able to utilize this miraculous tool in its original form.

Lastly, don’t be shy about using this mantra, or a modified variation thereof, for the purpose of initiating deep meditation.  It works great!  Again, one of its most appealing qualities IS its flexibility/adaptability.  Above all, though, just do it, and reap the powerful, amazing, and perpetual accumulative benefits!

P.S. – I’d love to get your feedback on this.  Please let me know how things go (let us know really, with the other blog readers included of course), and feel free to post in the comments section below any expansions or helpful hints you may discover/create, plus any positive experiences you may want to share that may help or encourage others.  Thanks!  Also, please feel free to re-post and/or forward this to whomever you think might derive some benefit.  In these crazy times, we all need to band together in true community spirit, and help each other out in any way we can!
