Sunset of Wispy Clouds (4)

“The Way is not in the sky. The Way is in the Heart.”  — ancient Buddhist axiom

NOTE:  Best to play the following YouTube music compilation video while reading this, in order to groove with its vibe more easily, as the music in this compilation represents even more viscerally the feeling, the transcendent rapture, I am trying to convey in this post via my words:

A few months ago, I posted a short article about what I had begun to experience, namely a deep and unshakeable inner peace, combined with a soaring joy that was, and still is, completely indescribable.  These amazing sensations and experiences were coming to me only sporadically at that time, sudden spontaneous infusions of ethereal bliss moving wonderfully into and through my entire body, and surrounding me with what felt like the warmest loving embrace a human being could ever imagine or experience.  Well, that’s all changed now.

Towards the end of June, just after the northern Summer Solstice, these overwhelming sensations stopped.  Well, they stopped being sporadic, that is!  I felt this Sunset Cloud from house (2)ineffable state of BE-ing sort of ‘lock in’.  Something fundamental shifted in my . . . Deepest Core, I guess you could term it.  And the spiritual ecstasy became permanent.  Of course, it ebbs and flows like anything else in this life, sometimes flowing subtly just under the surface of my ‘normal’ daily activities, where I am barely conscious of it at all; and other times sending chills and other delightful physical sensations rolling through my body, preventing me from doing anything outside of simply reveling in it until the heavenly moment passes.  It’s pretty awesome, to say the least.

So how can I better describe this now-constant experience/sensation, make it easier for others to get a ‘taste’ of what I’m attempting to convey?  It’s not easy!  Well, this question was exactly what I was thinking about the other morning as I woke up from another night of other-worldly adventures.  I stretched long and powerfully, like a big cat after a long nap, felt the blood flowing a bit more vigorously through my veins and arteries, and enjoyed the little rush of endorphins my muscles were treated to.  And, of course, I bathed myself in the ‘ocean of bliss’ that I am now accustomed to swimming in continuously.  Then it hit me:  Afterglow!  YES, that’s IT!!!

Unless you’re still a virgin, or unless you’re one of the unfortunate few (or many? I hope not!) who’ve never made love in a really vigorous, passionate, deeply satisfying manner, in a way which sates not only the body – sometimes to the point of exhaustion — but even your very soul when it’s exceptionally . . . powerful — then you know what I’m getting at here.  For those of you who are also familiar with tantric ecstasy, or who have learned to weave non-physical (higher-vibrational) energies into your lovemaking, this is what I’m talking about.  The after-effects.  Nothing quite like it – and nowhere else in the cosmos you would ever want to ‘be’ when you’re there.  Vibrant, whole, and perfectly content. . . .

I have been floating in a sea of profound inner peace and imperturbable bliss, enjoying deep physical relaxation, and finally trusting fully in the Reality that whispers to me constantly in its still, small Voice, ‘All that transpires, both Within and without, is part of the Divine PlanKeep the faith, we are always with you!’.  I no longer possess any personal agenda, make no long-term plans (at this point ‘next week’ would be long-term for me!), feel no materialistic desires, nor experience any type of stress.  I literally don’t have a single care in the world – despite several people in my lifMan-Woman orgasmic space-chakra imagee who keep trying to impose them on me.  Just so you know, I do still have a family to support, apartments and homes to maintain and manage, and a car that is actually starting to get eaten alive by rust (I live near the ocean) and hasn’t had a tune-up in at least two years.  But nothing of the material world concerns me anymore.  Nothing.  Not in the least.  (Outside of my children’s immediate needs, of course).  I take care of what needs taking care of, but I am no longer emotionally attached to my physical circumstances and material world ‘obligations’.  I hope you can see the difference?  (Non-attachment does not mean ‘neglect’, by the way, as many still stuck in the old 3D mind-set may try to convince you – so you don’t uncouple yourself from them and their little dramas, you see.).  Regardless, I have now stopped giving any emotion (power) to the ‘negative’ events unfolding in our world, as I have come to the knowing that all happens for a Go(o)d reason, despite the fact that we may not always be able to discern or decipher that reason.  Instead, I am focusing exclusively on simply BEing in the moment, in every single moment, while calmly and confidently gazing forward into our glorious emerging lives in the New Earth we are now co-creating together.

The Beginning Is Now - yoga at sunrise

Fortunately (for my sanity), I have heard of others in the global spiritual community having very similar, or even identical, transformations in their BEING-ness lately.  Sandra Walter is one.  Bill Ballard is another.  And the supportive, inspiring messages from and through Aisha North, Ron Head, John Smallman, Méline Lafont (two sites), Sophia LoveUte Posegga-Rudel, more recently Brenda Hoffman, and many other remarkable and courageous souls out there have been pivotal in helping to keep my head together through these Inner changes, since most people in this crazy world in the midst of radical change — those just now starting to undo their disagreeable Old Earth programming, find and cleanse old traumas and inner darkness, and wrestle their tyrannical little egos out of the driver’s seat of their planetary vehicle — still insist on questioning and resisting (or even fighting) these monumental shifts within their own selves.

My fondest hope is that you reading this, and ideally the rest of humanity, quickly join us here on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge to dwell in the Sacred Land that was promised to us long, long ago.  Right here and now in this momentous calendar year of 2013, it appears (and feels) like we are being gently and lovingly summoned back Home.   Weary travelers trudging through alien wilderness, tired and confused by our protracted journey that has lasted so long now that we’ve completely forgotten why we departed in the first place, we finally spot the beckoning light of a nighttime campfire in a nearby forest clearing.  The flames leap and dance to greet us as we approach, inviting us joyfully to return to its ancient circle of warmth, comfort and camaraderie, offering the rest and succor we long for so desperately after our horribly exhausting journey into the previously uncharted wilds of God’s Material Creation.

So who’s got the marshmallows???. . . .

DREAM YOURSELF AWAKE! or Matrix Disassembly In Progress

(Note:  I just today read this article by John McIntosh, and saw how it related directly to some info that came to me yesterday and this morning that was meant for my next post.  So now, I’ll just repost his article and preface it with a few thoughts . . . .)

 

Our shared ‘reality’, the illusional matrix that we have co-created together for eons, is NOW being completely disassembled.  Our individuated consciousness is being ‘extracted’ from this dream world (many consider it a ‘nightmare world’ no doubt) – whether every individual is aware of this process or not.

Wouldn’t this concept very neatly account for the ‘what the heck is going on here?’ question in many people’s minds, explain the unprecedented levels of confusion, mayhem, strife, bewilderment, doubt, self-doubt, conflict, seeking, and just general chaos – mental, emotional and spiritual — of most of the world’s population in these crazy times we find ourselves experiencing as a Collective?

Here is my ‘take’ on the matter:  We are returning to our true Home, folks!  However, when a) one doesn’t even know that one is not ‘home’ in the first place, and b) one has no clue as to what one’s True Home ‘looks like’, and c) one is being bombarded by the MSM every single moment of one’s waking dream with messages, both overt and subtle, that tell you that ‘No, THIS is the ONLY reality, people!’ and ‘FEAR the unknown, don’t trust anybody who preaches positive, uplifting news!  The world/universe really does suck, and we are nothing but fleeting life forms evolved from ancient slime molds, living only for competing and even fighting to survive and breed!’ (even screaming it in your face every day from all angles) . . . . . . Well, I can see how challenging this may appear as a concept to most of the lost souls out there!

Anyway, I strongly recommend that you embrace, and enjoy, this sacred disassembly and quantum perceptual shift (or extraction if you prefer) as much as you can possibly manage to — bit by bit, step by step, day by challenging day.  The veil is lifting on our small but very influential world, as simultaneously the curtain is being lowered on the Grand Theater we have been acting out for untold millennia.  The horror show is over, my fellow players.  Time to take off our masks and costumes, take a nice long bath or hot shower to wash all the sweat and grit off our tired and somewhat mistreated Selves – and get ready for the magnificent after-party!  It is my fervent hope that the following article by John McIntosh will help you all do just that . . . . . IF you put the recommended spiritual technology into passionate action, connecting your naturally brilliant minds with your love-portal hearts, and putting them both to the epic task of your own Grand Awakening.

Dream Yourself Awake by John McIntosh

17 August 2012

While in the dream – the 3D world of opposites, of separation of limitation – nothing you have learned, none of your history is True except … as you believe it to be. Even then, it is still not True but seems True to you while you give it Life through your belief.

When you come to the Moment when you finally see you are dreaming and choose to Wake from the dream all you have is what you have learned within the dream to use to Wake from it … call it your history.

This means you are using a dream to Wake from the dream.

There are a multitude of choices from the various religions and philosophies to the more esoteric spiritual belief systems … many ancient and several relatively new.

You may choose to try many of these techniques but eventually you will find they all lead to stilling the mind – the false ego self – so that Truth can shine through.

The question arises … who is listening and who is speaking? You may hear suggestions of a ‘still small voice’ or the ‘voice of silence’ or the ‘inner guide’ as the speaker of Truth … but who is listening?

If the ego-mind is to be stilled, what is left to listen with?

Consciousness is the screen on which the play of dreams plays and it is also the Awareness that watches it and the player within it. It goes into the play It creates and ‘plays’ in that creation … a dream.

It is the instrument through which the Unknowable One Knows It Self.

Once Consciousness goes into Its creation to have this experience of Knowing It Self, it loses Awareness of Its True Self … Its Divine Unknowable origin. This is done in order that the experience may ‘seem’ completely Real.

It is not a mistake that IT … which is US … has done this.

The season of this forgetting It Self in order to fully experience It Self has ended and Now we are returning to the full Awareness that we Are that Divine Unknowable One.

BUT HOW?

The listener within the dream IS the Consciousness (the player) that has been sleeping within the dream. For the most part the silent voice has not been heard down through the eons of experience but Now the silent voice ‘seems’ louder.

This is because the veil between full Awareness and full forgetfulness has thinned and we ‘hear’ It more easily … which is to say, we hear the voice of Truth, which is US … calling us Home.

Many still refuse to listen and that is their choice to remain sleeping.

For those who choose to listen and follow the guidance YOU are giving yourself, a new dream is being given to you in order to Awaken you from the old one. It is simply that you Are Free … you Are Peace, you Are Joy.

While in the dream … these are just words but the New dream asks you to shift from the flat, lifeless meaning of words to the Vital Aliveness of the ‘Essence’ within the words. It asks you to FEEL the words rather than hear them. This is a shift from the head-thoughts to the Heart-feelings. This IS the Consciousness you Are and Knows It Self as feelings (not emotions).

As you allow yourself to FEEL everything you are Being your True Self and dreaming your True Self back into full Awareness of your Unknowable Oneness or Being-ness.

LATE ADDITION:  I just read a very timely message posted by John Smallman on his blog (after writing all of the above), which ‘coincidentally’ speaks to the exact same theme as this post of mine, and John McIntosh’s article of the 17th.  Sooooo many synchronicities lately . ….  Anyway, John S’s post (notice the same first names of the writers, and of the ‘other’ author in Smallman’s blog post — hmmmm) dovetails nicely on this one, coming from a more ‘purely spiritual’ perspective (http://johnsmallman.wordpress.com/2012/08/19/not-all-of-you-will-awaken-in-the-same-moment/ ).  Hold on tight to your Inner/Higher Selves as the momentous unraveling of the Collective Dream begins to accelerate . . . .

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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!

ENTERING THE LUCID DREAM . . . . .

Ever see the incredibly creative movie Vanilla Sky? Regardless of what you think of the actors themselves in that movie (Tom Cruise, Penelope Cruz, and Cameron Diaz as the three biggest ‘stars’, while Penelope Cruz also co-starred in the original Spanish version called Abre Tus Ojos), the story was extremely well-scripted, well-acted and well-produced. I highly recommend it, if for nothing more than a really challenging and intense psychological ‘trip’.


Anyway, one of the concepts presented in the movie is that of the Lucid Dream. So as to not ruin the story for you, I won’t go into too much detail. Basically, the Lucid Dream is a state where the dreamer is given the opportunity to live and relive over and over again a more or less fantastic, custom-designed life. Now the trick is this: The dreamer doesn’t know that it’s all just a dream! So when it starts to ‘break down’ for the main character, it gets really, really weird.

Do ever remember your lucid dreams? I do, at least most of the time. At least for a while. By the time I’m done in the bathroom, it’s usually faded from recollection, except for a fragment or impression or two. For a while, I wrote my dreams down on a notebook next to my bed, which definitely did help to develop both dream remembrance, and lucid dreaming abilities. If you’ve never been able to remember your dreams (we all dream, as has been scientifically proven beyond a doubt – it’s the recall that many people often have trouble with is all), that writing-your-dreams-down-as-you-wake-up technique works pretty well. Also, there are many videos on YouTube on this subject, including how to start lucid dreaming and get proficient at it. It’s fun to explore, even if just as a ‘hobby’. Although I’ve never needed it that way, I bet it can help those suffering from insomnia a lot.

Lucid dreams can be really wonderful. Being fully conscious while in the dream state, knowing that you are in a dream state but feeling exactly like your ‘regular’ self (though predictably much ‘lighter’ and more relaxed and joyful and adventurous), is quite the fun experience. No rules! No consequences! No restrictions whatsoever on what you’d like to experience! Go anywhere. Do anything. Be with anybody you want, in any way you want. Wow!

Well, get ready, folks! Based on what I’ve been feeling, reading, and intuiting lately, it appears that we may all actually be on the brink of entering that ‘lucid’ state real soon now. Do you think you could handle instant satisfaction of your desires? Do you feel comfortable with every single thought manifesting itself into your reality immediately – ‘good’ or ‘bad’? Does that much freedom appeal to you? Does that much POWER appeal to you? Does having a perfect youthful body sound nice? How about a billion dollars? Yachts, race cars, jets, mansions? Clean, free energy for life? A huge organic farm in an intentional holistic community? What exactly would your ‘ideal lifestyle’ look like? What would you do with your time if you didn’t have to work to ‘earn a living’, or do the dishes, or feed the cat? Where would you live? Who would you want to ‘be’ with? What do you love to do? And would you do only that, or try to join with other people, co-create a fantasy world to share? Deep, serious questions no doubt – but critically important if you become the Grand Creator of your own life, right? It kinda cuts right to the very core of each person’s beliefs and ‘way of being’, no?

Well, all I can say about this challenge is this: After decades of consciously working on controlling my thoughts, shaping my attitudes, and transforming my entire mental and emotional landscape, there is only one absolute certainty that I have come away with – IT AINT AS EASY AS IT SOUNDS! I have strived to create and live this reality consciously to an exceptionally large degree over the past 15+ years — haphazardly at first, then with increasing ‘control’, and never quite precisely (too much detail to deal with, some of which can really go astray). And although there was always a significant time delay, and I was rarely able to maintain the ‘right’ level of vibration long enough to manifest something quite in the manner I had imagined it to come into being (or I changed my mind mid-stream and so messed it all up, the timing and such especially), I have had at least a small taste of what it’s like to consciously manifest one’s own dream-reality. It can be very cool for sure! Fantastagorical and megasuperblissful actually, believe me! But maintaining it that way over long periods of time – like, say, a whole week? Virtually impossible. Even a single day of pure joy and fun and ecstasy is pretty darn tough to keep up without some nasty little thought or negative emotion slithering its way back into the ‘rational mind’ (ego) to mess it up again! (No slight on our wonderful legless brethren the serpents, mind you). Yeah, those monkey wrenches (sorry, furry dudes) are really hard to keep from flying unexpectedly and unwelcomed into even the best-manifested dream lifestyles. .. . . .

Regardless, people, gear up and get ready for action, ‘cause I think we’re in for some pretty shocking ‘near-immediate manifestation of the collective thought-forms’ type experiences. The lids are coming off Pandora’s infamous box, the revelations will come so fast it’ll make most people dizzy (some even suicidal perhaps), and all our closets are gonna get ripped open to give those nefarious old skeletons equal and free reign on our planetary playground. ‘Interesting’ times, indeed!!!

Just remember one basic thing that I have learned from first-hand experience, and you should be just fine: Focusing on LOVE is, always was, and always will be much wiser — and more pragmatic and intelligent and enjoyable as well — than giving in to fear. I guarantee it.

Lucid Dreamin’, here we come . . . . . . . .

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!

MOVING FROM HEAD TO HEART

I know that a lot has been written on this particular topic of late. However, I think that maybe my personal perspective, and experience, might reveal a slightly different aspect of the issue, illuminate a heretofore unseen angle, and help some of you who have not yet quite grasped how significant, and critical, this pivotal shift in SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) really IS right now for all of us to make – given the assumed goal of maximum spiritual evolution and expansion and growth, of course.

In these ‘change times’, at the cusp of the massive paradigm shift that is now taking place in our world, things can get quite confusing. Most of us, because of our ‘conditioning’ to not just go with the flow and feel our way through events, strive in vain with our mental faculties to make some kind of logical sense out what is happening both around us and within us. For the most part, however, it’s an exercise in futility. Why??? Because our ‘logic’ is based primarily on a linear, cause-and-effect, conservative, fear-based, and woefully misinformed perspective.

I was born an intellectual. It’s just the way I came into this world (a triple Virgo no less) — and pretty much still am, though in a more organic, holistic sense. Anyway, I suffered a bit in my youth because of the somewhat more detached and ‘lofty’ intellectual perspective I came in with, getting quickly labeled in high school and earning a couple of nicknames. Fortunately for me, however, I had started surfing at a tender young age, and so had already learned many things about life — and attitude and knowledge and the relative ‘value’ of the intellect – by the time I reached those challenging times. Thank the Universe for that!

Here’s the thing. . . . . . As all athletes know, trying to use your cerebral mind or normal thought processes (logic, rationalization, weighing pros and cons, etc.) while one is actually engaged in intense activity is basically useless – and can even be downright dangerous in some sports, like surfing big waves or shooting rapids in a kayak or sparring in martial arts, where split-second decisions must be made and executed way, way too quickly for any mental processes to even be called upon, let alone utilized. It’s ALL about so-called ‘instinct’ or ‘second nature’ or ‘feel’, something that can only be developed with hands-on practice and experience, while applying the intellectual information and concepts one has learned in a non-critical environment before one actually does the thing. For those non-athletes out there who may not be able to viscerally relate to the above, just imagine trying to manage a passionate session of love-making with your intellectual mind. Enough said.

According to all that I’ve read over the years, AND also as a conclusion based on my extensive experience in all kinds of radical physical and social and economic situations over the decades, it appears that the most intelligent and successful manner in which to navigate these ‘interesting times’ is to practice something that, at first glance, appears to be somewhat of an oxymoron: THINK WITH YOUR HEART. (Helpful Note: There is a great .net web site by that name!).

Intuition, non-physical/energetic awareness, and feelings now appear to be the most efficient and effective ‘tools’ of information gathering and discernment. Your HEART is where these aspects emanate from, energetically at least (our middle main chakra point, Center of Love and Intuition, with its own scientifically confirmed ‘brain-like’ nervous system no less). So, personally, my greatest transition in this area over the last 20 years or so has been learning to rely primarily on my heart for guidance, forging a direct connection to the infinite pool of information of the Sentient Cosmos, in order to better make my way through this pivotal epoch in human history on Terra. The intellect, or mind, is still a very important and even critical instrument for making our way in 3D life, of course! However, it has now been placed in its natural secondary position in the hierarchy of my personal 3D-navigation toolbox. Once all the intel is collected from the non-physical sources, then I employ my mind, put the ‘higher logic’ of my obedient intellect to work, to sort it all out in this transitioning matrix and make both the most supra-logical AND best-feeling decision possible.

A few weeks ago, I wrote the following to a relative of mine (excerpted and edited for clarity here), responding to his penchant for recommending various books to me despite the fact that I’ve stopped reading them. I began taking a quite different approach to ‘information gathering’ last year, one which has proved very effective (for me at least):

‘Whatever I need to know is provided to me instantly when necessary for me to ‘understand’ the experience I am having, or have just passed through (or that another person has experienced that is related to something I have also, or need to help them with in some way). But the means of transferring the information is never via the language that you and I use. This is why I stopped reading books. For the time being at least, I have no need or use for that type of ‘knowledge’ (which really isn’t true knowledge anyway, right?). Some things are interesting and entertaining, and so I read some material in books that I am guided to from time to time, but only in excerpts.

‘The primary purpose of intellectual ‘understanding’ is to reduce or eliminate fear. If a being is utilizing the lower mind as its primary mechanism to operate within a given reality, then a mental comprehension is necessary for that being to avoid a fear reaction to events or circumstances that are ‘beyond’ their experience or previous understanding of reality. On the other hand, if a being is no longer utilizing their lower mind as the primary ‘tool’ for navigating reality, then ‘studying’ various aspects of the reality they find themselves in so that they can manipulate it more easily, is unnecessary.

‘‘PUL’ (Pure Unconditional Love) is only achieved when one releases the 3D intellect completely, and FEELS ones way through Reality. I’ve been doing that for a while now. As long as one relies on the mind for guidance, one shall remain unsure and confused in the most important situations. Think of martial arts, and you’ll grasp my point here . . . . You need not ‘understand’ ascension in order to achieve it, you see. You must, however, lose your mind in order to do so. That is definitely a non-negotiable prerequisite.

‘That’s just the way it is, and the way it must be. That’s why none of the cabal or their followers can enter the Gates of Heaven, you see (without changing radically, of course). They all live through their minds, not their hearts. It’s THAT simple. PUL is 100% Heart, 0% head/mind/intellect.’

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

So let’s all put our Hearts in the driver’s seat, and race joyfully into the New Earth we are rapidly co-creating together! What’d’ya say???

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!
