CAITLIN JOHNSTONE: “Fight The Establishment’s Narratives — By Getting Clear On Your Own”

“Scientific research has found that astronauts suffer problems with coordination, perception and cognition when they are unable to determine ‘which way is up’ in space. There is no ‘up’ or ‘down’ when you’re outside the gravitational pull that our bodies are adapted to, so its absence sends our whole system out of whack. Navigating a society that is made of mental narrative is very much the same; if you don’t know which way’s up, you’ll get lost and confused.”

~Caitlin Johnstone

 

Anti-establishment movements are a mess. Whether they’re left-wing or right-wing, whether they’re statist or anarchist, whether they’re organized or decentralized, whether they place emphasis on official or unofficial narratives, any circle of people who are interested in opposing the status quo on a deep, meaningful level almost invariably find themselves significantly bogged down by confusion, paranoia, infighting, and misdirected use of energy.

Every day, for example, I get people in my inbox and social media notifications telling me I shouldn’t quote or share anything from this or that lefty journalist or anti-establishment figure because they’ve said something “problematic” at some point or have some kind of association with some aspect of the establishment. Rather than simply using narrative-disrupting tools wherever they come from to fight the establishment narrative control machine, I’m encouraged to isolate myself to the extremely narrow spectrum of voices which agree with my exact worldview perfectly. This kind of paranoid, self-cannibalizing mentality is rife throughout most anti-establishment circles.

This happens for a number of reasons, including the fact that the ruling power establishment will infiltrate dissident movements that it perceives as a threat with the intent of sowing confusion and division. But the underlying reason anti-establishment circles so often find themselves getting crushed by their own weight is ultimately because life itself is confusing and difficult to understand.

Hardly anyone holds a lucid and steady awareness of just how much of society is comprised of mental narrative. Most people live their lives under the unquestioned assumption that when they are moving around in the world, speaking, acting, forming opinions, having ideas etc, they are interacting with something that resembles objective reality. The truth of the matter is that most of the things which draw people’s attention in their day-to-day experience, whether it’s names, titles, news stories, political parties, economics, history, philosophy, religion or what have you, consist entirely of mental noises firing off inside human skulls.

You might think it’s a big jump to go from chatting about the sociopolitical dynamics within dissident movements to making vaguely Buddhist-sounding observations about human thought, but it’s really not. The reason our species is in a mess right now, and thus the reason movements exist which seek to change the status quo, is because so much of life is dictated entirely by made-up mental narratives which can be easily controlled by the powerful, and hardly anyone fully grasps this. If they did, the revolution against the establishment would very smoothly and quickly succeed.

Scientific research has found that astronauts suffer problems with coordination, perception and cognition when they are unable to determine which way is up in space. There is no “up” or “down” when you’re outside the gravitational pull that our bodies are adapted to, so its absence sends our whole system out of whack. Navigating a society that is made of mental narrative is very much the same; if you don’t know which way’s up, you’ll get lost and confused. Before you can see the narrative matrix clearly, you might be aware that some narratives serve power and swat at them while you’re spinning through space, but you won’t have any solid ground on which to orient yourself for the purpose of forming a clear path forward toward a healthy and harmonious world.

Your first and foremost task as a revolutionary, therefore, is to find solid ground on which to plant your feet while operating within a swirling sea of narratives and counter-narratives. Without this you’ll find yourself expending energy on ineffectual agendas, chasing shadows, attacking friends and advancing the interests of the enemy as you stumble around trying to fight a threat you can’t even see clearly. You’ve got to figure out for yourself which way’s up.

The only way to do this is to turn inward and sort out your own mental narratives in your own experience. This takes a lot of dedicated work, because there are many layers of tightly believed narratives which dictate one’s perception of the world that most people aren’t even aware of.

As soon as we’re born we are given a name which has nothing to do with the nature of the slimy, screaming naked creature which came roaring thunderously alive out of the womb. We spend our childhood being told who we are in various ways by our family, then we go to school to get taught how to think like everyone else and get labeled good/smart or bad/stupid for the rest of our lives based on how well we dance that dance. Along the ride we pick up coping mechanisms to deal with the stress of this whole unnatural ordeal, many of which become extremely counterproductive unconscious habits in later years. We pick up likes and dislikes, interests and aversions, life philosophies, religious beliefs, societal beliefs, political beliefs, all of which come together to form our worldview.

Because the foundations of our entire worldview are formed in early childhood long before we’re mature enough to decide for ourselves what a useful foundation might look like, we wind up interfacing with life through this muddled, inefficient network of mostly unconscious mental and perceptual habits which don’t serve us very well. It is with this warped, endarkened tool that we interact with the vast sea of official and unofficial narratives we are presented with in our attempts to decipher what’s wrong with the world and how to fix it.

The path, then, is to unwind this whole confused, unconscious muddle of mental and perceptual habits until we get to the untarnished blank canvass of that powerful screaming baby who first met this wild world, and inhabit it consciously. That right there is our solid ground.

Who are you? Underneath the mental narratives about who you are? Underneath all the stories, labels and beliefs? Underneath the field of consciousness full of thoughts, sensory impressions and feelings? This is the most important inquiry that anyone can possibly engage in, and it is worthy of the entirety of your focus until it’s resolved.

All of these swirling, babbling thought stories have dictated our lives for as long as we can remember, but rarely does anyone sit down and start sorting out where they come from and if they’re useful. We lug around ancient mental narratives about life, about how we should be, about how other people should be, about the best ways to find happiness, about the best ways to avoid unhappiness, and we rarely consider the possibility that we can interact with life unencumbered by that heavy load.

If you want to find solid ground beneath your feet so that you can push effectively for a healthy world, you’ve got to question every assumption you’ve ever made about yourself and the nature of the world, even your very most fundamental assumptions, because it’s all narrative. As you turn your attention toward your essential nature and away from your churning, babbling mental habits, interest and attention will move away from mental narratives and toward the solid ground upon which they appear. The mind will relax and mental narrative will take on its proper role as a tool that can be used when it’s useful and set down when it isn’t, rather than the dominating feature of every minute of waking existence. Unhelpful mental habits can be discarded, and all attempts at narrative manipulation will stand out like a black fly on a white sheet of paper.

I can’t tell you how to do this. Everyone’s path to the heart of the fundamental matter is unique, and you can only travel it on your own. I can tell you that the answer does not exist in the realm of thought, and that it is closer to you than your own breath. Sincere, dedicated inquiry into your own true nature, on your own and in your own way, will lead you to the ground on which you must take your stand in order to fight the establishment narrative machine effectively.

NEZEL PADAYHAG: “6 Ways To Tap Into Your Heart’s Intelligence And Wisdom”

In life, you may have certainly been in a situation where you need to decide between the contradictory opinions of your heart and your mind.

Things become more difficult when people remind you that your head is where your brain is because it’s higher. Though your heart is protesting, you follow what looks logical and correct.

For decisions involving the most correct choice, like whether or not you should dump a narcissist partner, it’s only wiser to decide with the mind.

However, the function of your heart goes far beyond supporting life.

The heart is also an intelligent organ that interferes with your decision making process, the reason why it wants to be given due consideration at times.

How To Tap Into Your Heart’s Intelligence And Wisdom:

The heart as Hridaya

Researcher Gregg Braden has dug into the ancient technique of using the heart as an intelligent organ.

The functions of the heart go far beyond supporting life and sending blood all throughout the body. It has a wisdom that’s not influenced by the ego.

As such, it gives you information from a neutral place. Your heart knows your past, present, and future. Since it does not have any egoic tendencies, it always has your best interest at heart.

The Sanskrit word Hridaya, which comes from ‘Hrid’ meaning ‘center’, and ‘Ayam’ meaning ‘this’, describes the heart’s intellect as the energy that is contained within the heart chakra.

More than a physical heart, it also is a spiritual heart that contains the intelligence of God or the transcendental mind.

This spiritual heart sees to it that you perceive things from your center and not stray away from your Highest Self.

The yogi Bhagavan describes the heart center as a seat of Pure Consciousness, realized Existence, Knowledge, and Bliss.

The mind of your brain operates from your past experiences and past erroneous beliefs assigned to those experiences. In short, it creates false perceptions just to arrive what for you is the ‘right’ answer, even topping those false concepts with emotional investment.

The Heart’s Neurobiology

The neurobiology of the heart has these significant points:

– The heart has more fibers leading to the brain than from the brain to the heart, making more communication to take place in the heart.

– The heart of an unborn fetus beats before the brain has been formed. And humans form an emotional brain before a rational one.

– The heart has an independent complex nervous system known as the ‘brain of the heart.’

– The heart can create coherence in the body through its rhythm.

– The heart’s electromagnetic field is greater than that of the brain, which can be detected several feet away.

– The heart has wisdom.

The wisdom of the heart is what provides us with clear decisions that are being governed by our highest self. Gregg Braden suggests the following tips to tap into the heart’s intelligence.

6 Tips On Tapping Into The Heart’s Intelligence

1. Focus on your heart with the intention of seeking its intelligence.

2. Breathe slowly to calm your nerves and silence your brain.

3. Have a deep sense of gratitude, compassion, and love to activate the heart’s energy.

4. Ask a brief and accurate question to your heart.

5. Notice the different feelings or bodily sensations.

6. Keep this practice regularly.

The heart’s intelligence is subjective and wouldn’t be the same for everyone. You may feel butterflies in the gut, a warm sensation throughout your body, or tingling in the fingertips. Or, you might even receive a clear, short and kind answer in your mind.

Establishing this deeper connection with your heart takes time. Persist with the practice and listen to your heart more.

There’s no reward as great as listening to your heart that’s leading you to your purpose.

CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “Activation Of The Powerful 8/8 Lionsgate Portal”

Use Gateway of 8-8 to awaken the Celestial Light Codes!

Each year the Earth, the Galactic Centre (Sagittarius in 27 degrees) and Sirius, the star, are aligned. This happens on 8th August and is called the “Lion’s Gateway”. On this day, the spiritual and physical energies are directly controlled by the cosmoses.

This day is named so because Lion according to astrology is the sign of the Leo. This zodiac is linked with heart and also represents the Divine. And since Leo is associated with grandeur, an alignment like this can stir similar energies in us.

On the day of the Galactic Centre, the circulation of energy in human beings increases and the DNA awakens. Moreover, the moment at which Sirius, the star, and the Sun is in direct alignment the transmission of energy to the Earth intensifies. The scope for progression and ascension thus increases too.

This year the Lion’s Gate has arrived! What is it all about?

There is ascension of energy on the planet as the combination of intense light waves and stimulated consciousness is passing by the Spirit and the Sun. This cosmic change can lead to significant life changes for everyone. Life essentials like relationships, finances, career, health, family, travel, possessions are all under its scanner. The question in everyone’s mind is how does it affect our life? How will it alter the relationship between love and soul? These thoughts can’t be stopped at the moment and everything may seem to be in a state of flux.

However, these changes ultimately lead us to higher truth. And even though changes are not easy to adjust with, it will result in eventual happiness.

The divine message during this phase is to stay motivated. Trust your instincts, focus on love, and believe in your spiritual self. Remember that you have spiritual powers in you and these changes are for an ultimate goal of happiness and opportunities.

Meditation:

Do not forget to meditate on 8th August! On this day, your energy is highest and it is the best time to align your chakras. Concentrate on the divine light to enlighten your inner self.

At this time you can generate Love at both personal and collective level. It will help you rise above the material world and enter a spiritual realm of awareness. The mind, heart, and the spirit are thus aligned at this moment. You need to realize the path of your life and see if it is in alignment. What do you truly desire and what is the ultimate destination you wish to reach?

Accept yourself truly. Loving oneself without any fear and doubt will help you face the divine Truth. The process of this meditation is to gain ascension over material world and unite with the spiritual one. You can channelize you energy to become what you want to be. You can be the source of Infinite Love and Radiant Light.

Once you open the gates of your heart and mind to receive the positive energy and divine light. Have faith and let go of the fear within. Follow the instinctual light in front of you.

ARIA BELLA: “Why You Need Meditation”

“The birds chattering, the distant sound of cars. Feeling the sun or breeze on my face, really helping to anchor me in my body as I take in those sensations. Not only does it bring your stress levels down, it allows your body to go into its optimum level for relaxation and healing.”

~Aria Bella

 

Meditation is good for the soul, for the whole body and your mind. Go indulge today!

If you want an all-out activity that is going to soothe every single part of you and your senses — go meditate!!  It doesn’t have to be long, hard or full on.  Meditation comes in all shapes and sizes — you just have to find the ones that fit.

A really easy meditation to do is mindfulness — this can be done anywhere — making dinner, washing the dishes, hanging the clothes out.  All it asks you to do is be fully present in the moment, focusing on what you are doing, listening to the sounds around you and just being in that moment.

If you struggle with mind chatter, then guided meditation or ones where you need to chant may work for you as it helps to keep those natters to the background.  I personally love going outside and focussing on the sounds around me.

The birds chattering, the distant sound of cars.  Feeling the sun or breeze on my face, really helping to anchor me in my body as I take in those sensations.  Not only does it bring your stress levels down, it allows your body to go into its optimum level for relaxation and healing.  It gives your mind permission to take a break — although your mind will still have thoughts, so do not think you are doing it wrong just because it is still carrying on, it is its job.

Just allow them to flow without focussing on them.  It brings your soul to the fore as well.  So it is really the best all round exercise that you can possibly do for your wellbeing.  Even if you think you are not a meditator — and my hand is up on this one.  Keep at it and give yourself a few minutes every day, increasing if you can to get some of that deep AH into your day.

Your heart, body, soul and mind will thank you!

“I allow myself to meditate for the best of me”

Till next time… keep walking your spiritual path xx

JAMIE PARTRIDGE: “Mercury Retrograde April 2017 — Heart or Mind”

12123503 - planet with nebulos filaments

Mercury retrograde April 2017 starts on April 9 at 4° Taurus and ends on May 3 at 24° Aries.

Mercury retrograde April 2017 will cause some confusion and indecision about very serious matters. If problems with love or money are the issue then your options will be severely restricted.

You may be subject to intense pressure to choose between your heart and your mind. Mercury retrograde from April 9 to May 3 is not a good time for final decisions so hold out if you can. Mercury direct from May 3 to 20 brings clear insight and exciting new opportunities.

Before I go into more detail about Mercury retrograde April 2017, I will talk about what it means to have Mercury retrograde in your natal chart then the general meaning of Mercury retrograde in transit.

Mercury Retrograde Meaning

Natal Mercury retrograde means there was a problem with how you thought and communicated in a previous life. Perhaps you gave someone bad advice that had critical repercussions, or were prone to making costly mistakes. Maybe you wrote slanderous material about someone in a book or newspaper, or verbally teased and abused people.

Whatever the circumstances of the previous significant incarnation, you come into this life with those bad memories etched in your soul. You probably don’t recognize them as memories but as déjà vu or unexplained guilt. Especially when young, there can be a repeating theme of challenging events related to your past.

The aim of Mercury retrograde in your birth chart is for you to perfect those areas of thought and communication which once let you down. As your communication skills improve with experience, your karmic debt will be repaid and you can get off the roundabout.

Mercury retrograde in your natal chart can show as learning difficulties, especially with reading, writing and comprehension. You may be a shy, quite person whose thoughts have turned inward. Hesitant to speak up for yourself, you may miss out on many opportunities in life. This difficulty in expressing yourself can make you feel awkward in company and lead to low self-esteem. You may experience teasing or verbal abuse, be nagged and criticized, or fall victim to slander and lies. Contracts may also cause problems and like so many things, lead to complications further down the track.

Mercury retrograde only last for about three weeks so Mercury is going to turn direct at some stage in your progressed chart (where one day equals one year). After a couple of years you will notice that your communication style improves and you can express yourself more freely. However, the opposite can also occur and someone with Mercury direct in their natal chart may experience progressed Mercury retrograde later in life. I experienced this from age 13 to 37 and it was very profound. I even stopped reading books.

If you have Mercury retrograde in your natal or progressed chart then you can expect to make more rapid progress during transits of Mercury retrograde.

Transiting Mercury retrograde is a regular cycle occurring three or four times a year for about 24 days. While this is more frequent than any other planet, Mercury is still only retrograde 19% of the time. This is far less than Jupiter outwards, but more than Venus and Mars.

The Mercury retrograde phase is just one part of the Mercury retrograde cycle. The whole cycle includes Mercury going direct, retrograde, and direct again over the same degrees, or the retrograde zone. The two direct phases are called the shadow periods.

Mercury retrograde is associated with communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays and lost items. There is a feel of a difficult Mercury–Saturn aspect about Mercury retrograde. You can also expect to dwell on things, reminisce about the past, or unexpectedly meet up with people from your past. While the Mercury retrograde period may be good for flicking through old photo albums, it is generally considered more of a nuisance than a benefit.

Mercury retrograde can play havoc with your thoughts, communications, travels and electronics. Take extra care with your words and try not to react too quickly in any arguments or if provoked. Take some time out if you start to feel overwhelmed by the hectic pace. Double-check all of your emails and posts on Facebook before hitting the send button.

Business negotiations will be in a state of flux during Mercury retrograde so avoid signing contracts. Some important details will not yet be available, and other parties may not be reliable or honest. If going on a road trip then make sure you get your car serviced beforehand.

The riskiest times for decision-making, negotiations, communication and transport are the few days either side of the exact retrograde and direct stations. However, care should still be taken during the whole retrograde period.

Mercury Retrograde April 2017

March 27, 2017, Mercury enters shadow zone at 24°15′ Aries.

From now until when Mercury stations retrograde is called the first shadow period. During this phase you will get an idea of the thinking, communication or transport issues that may be of concern during the retrograde phase. [See Chart]

April 9, 2017, Mercury stations retrograde at 4°50′ Taurus.

Stationary Mercury retrograde at 4°50′ Taurus makes only one significant aspect as shown in the chart below. Moon quincunx Mercury is the major influence on Mercury retrograde April 2017. A weak trine to North Node and a fixed star conjunction add very little to the quincunx.

Moon quincunx Mercury creates some confusion around thinking and decision-making. The problem is knowing whether to trust your heart or your mind. Mercury is the rational mind while Moon is the emotional heart. This can show as hesitation, unreliability, confusion or disinterest.

If you feel balanced and not stressed about making a decision, you will naturally think with your head. An example of this Mercury decision-making process would be chosing between two apples to eat.

If you are emotionally attached to either option or feel pressured in some way, you are more likely to think with your heart. An example of this Moon decision-making process would be chosing a birthday present for your mother.

The trick is to take a little bit of this and a little bit of that. A balanced approach brings the best results. However, that’s easier said than done with Mercury retrograde. The chart below also reveals a number of challenging red aspects and more retrograde planets. These additional challenges reinforce the need to play it safe, especially in relationships.

Mercury Retrograde April 2017

Venus square Saturn reinforces the need to defer major decisions about your love life and finances. It can add stress to intimate relationships due to negative feelings, distance or other relationships problems. Most of these hindrances will stem from your own fears or criticisms, but you may face the same from others.

Venus retrograde means your love life enters a fated period. Giving and receiving love and affection becomes more difficult. Old friends or lovers may reappear or you may relive past life experiences in order to sort out karmic issues.

Saturn retrograde is a double dose of karma. If you have been bad in the past, then at a certain predestined time, an event will occur to teach you a lesson. If you been good in the past, then at a predestined time, an event will occur to reward you for your good deeds.

The T-Square aspect pattern involving Sun, Jupiter and Pluto indicates a lot of pressure being placed on you to make important decisions. Ego’s will be on the line leading to threats, intimidation and ruthless behavior.

Sun opposite Jupiter brings opportunities for success, good fortune and increased happiness. However, letting any good fortune go to your head can result in loss, embarrassment and a lowering of self-esteem.

Sun square Pluto increases your need to be in control, but can also lead to ego conflicts with powerful people or authority figures. A crisis or conflict makes for an intense experience or destructive behavior.

Jupiter square Pluto brings an intense drive to reach the top. Success, power and influence are all possible but without some care there will be a price to pay. Ruthless determination, greed and corruption may get you there quicker or make you richer but at what cost?

Mercury retrograde is already a risky time for making important decisions. The numerous challenges mentioned above increase the risk of making the wrong decision. Playing for extra time during Mercury retrograde April 2017 is advised. At the very least, get a second opinion on any business negotiations, contacts, plans and most especially love relationships.

May 3, 2017, Mercury stations direct at 24°15′ Aries.

This second shadow period lasts until Mercury leaves the retrograde zone on May 20. Areas of life that were a major focus during the Mercury retrograde 2017 phase can now be worked on.

Mercury direct joins Uranus and forms a wonderful grand trine aspect pattern. The depressing life obstacles of Mercury retrograde April 2017 can now be overcome, resolved or left behind.

Mercury conjunct Uranus stimulates your thinking and adds excitement to your daily interacts and routines. The electrifying influence on your brain makes this an ideal time for any mental or creative work requiring originality. Increased open-mindedness and intuition can lead to flashes of insight and breakthroughs.

Mercury Retrograde 2017

Moon trine Saturn gives the patience and emotional strength to handle sensitive or difficult relationship issues. Others may come to you for advice on a personal issue or just for a shoulder to cry on. Traditional values and old habits can bring solutions to new problems.

Moon trine Mercury lets you see things clearly. Your feeling, intuitive side is balanced with your rational thought processes to give acute perceptive skills. You can read others easily and quickly assess any situation. Your are in touch with your own feelings to give sound judgement and decision-making skills.

Mercury trine Saturn is good for studying and catching up on your paperwork and bills. Sustained mental work will not seem so boring at usual. Good concentration and attention to detail means you will not make mistakes. You will get things done neatly and on time.

A grand trine requires conscious effort to unlock the good fortune held within. You cannot rely on lucky breaks to solve your problems. Higher self-awareness of your thought processes is required to let go of karmic baggage. Even if you made wrong choices during Mercury retrograde 2017, you can rapidly turn your life around for the better during Mercury direct.

May 20, 2017, Mercury leaves the shadow zone at 4°50′ Taurus to complete the second cycle of Mercury retrograde 2017. [See Chart]

If Mercury retrograde 2017 affects your decan it will be mentioned in your monthly horoscope. For more detail on how Mercury retrograde aspects your birth chart, see Mercury Transits.

CREATOR COURSE: “The Power Of Thought”

power-of-thoughts

You are responsible for everything you have brought into your life, everything you have left out of your life, and everything that you are currently intending to bring into your life.  Every single relationship, association, difficulty, failure, fear, plan, hope, and success is in your control no matter whether you have been guided there consciously or subconsciously.  Every mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual state of being that you are experiencing right now is completely under your power.  If you think not, then you are giving away your innate power to others.  Everything in your life that I have just spoken about above originated, originates, and will originate from one matter — thought.

Your thoughts harness all your power and you wield this power through your thinking.  What you think about is up to you.  Thoughts trigger every word that comes out of your mouth, every action you go forward with, and every habit you form.  In turn, these self-expressions shape and mold your character and as we all know it, your character determines the destiny that guides you.  Thoughts actually emanate and radiate energy to and from your body.  They directly influence the physical, mental, emotional, social, sexual, and spiritual effort your body, mind, and spirit is willing to produce.  Since your thoughts directly correlate to the frequency of your vibrational being, be mindful of what you express — remember love is that of a high vibration and fear is that of a low one.  Each thought you create sends a vibration through your being and out into the universe.

At their most basic purpose, thoughts are how you creatively express your individuality.  Nurture your thoughts and take intense care after what you feed to your mentality.  Be mindful of what you mentally create as it has a majority of the effect in what you intend and create within your reality.

 

You form about 60,000 thoughts every single day and about 95% of those thoughts get exactly recreated the following day.  That 95%, as you could have guessed, is subconsciously created.  Make sure that those thoughts are what you consciously intend to create within your reality.

If you are unsure how powerful your thoughts and intentions really are, then let me explain to you the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto.  He gathered distilled water and blessed the specimens with a simple thought or intention as well as labeled others with words such as love or gratitude.  He froze the droplet samples and then placed them under a microscope to astonishingly find beautiful crystals react and reflect the initial thought or intention.  The crystals bore symmetrical and hexagonal snowflakes that all remained unique to one another.  It is interesting to think if this is how thoughts affected water, suppose how powerful they could affect you.

THOMAS ALEXANDER: “Are Rapidly Shifting Energies Driving You Mad?”

Going Mad 2.jpg

Sometimes, being yourself means being a bit mad. It’s okay to be a bit mad. All the best people are. Some of the worst may at times appear to be. However, there is a subtle, but distinct difference in being mad, from being insane. The insane person lives (if you can call it that) their entire existence, in abject fear and loathing of it. The slightest thing can send them into a fit of rage. Violent, ‘insane’ behavior, that is repellant to ‘sane’ people. The worst most mad people can be accused of, is being violently happy. Some people find even this, to be a bit too much. That’s okay. The mad person finds the company of ‘sane’ individuals to be a bit of a drag. Doldrums. ‘Keeping it real’. The struggle is real, you know… Bollocks!

The mad person’s behavior is typically repugnant to sane individuals, due to the fact that the sane individual is far too busy worrying about the trivial concerns of daily existence, to engage in such a frivolous and silly emotion as ‘joy’.

The sane person thinks, “Silly mad person… don’t you know there are real things, that must be worried about! Like, where’s the car parked; Where might I have to go next and how to get there, how much is the petrol going to cost, where is the money to pay for it going to come from.”

The ‘sane’ person entertains many such trains of thought simultaneously; Concerning sustenance, shelter, companionship etc… Worry, worry, worry. While it is natural to be occasionally concerned about these important items, it is unnatural to be overly concerned about them. This is, what drives good, hardworking, ordinarily ‘sane’ people; To insanity. Deluged under an inundation of out of control worry trains, roaring and thundering into the mental station of consciousness at a rate beyond which, they cannot continue to cope. And so they don’t; And yet, they do. The affected individual is rendered incapable of action – By caring so much – that they can’t even.

By allowing the equilibrium of your mental state to be overrun with too many thought trains, insanity is likely to ensue. This leads to congestion, angry passengers, lost parcels, and mental breakdown. On the other hand, what good is an empty train station? Find the balance that is right for you. Keep positive thought trains going! Send them forth from your station, full of happy passengers, brimming with valuable cargo. Thought trains, that others will be pleased to entertain in their own mental stations. Stop negative trains at the border, and turn them around. Those trains will go in search of other, more accommodating stations. After all, misery does love company. Joy loves company too. People that are ‘too happy’ for ‘no reason’ are weird. It’s okay to be weird. Existence is reason enough to be happy.

Does a flower question its existence? Does it worry if rain will fall, or if there are enough nutrients in the soil for it to grow? No. It exerts only the very slightest of efforts, growing towards light, water and food. It sends out tendrils, seeking for the right way. If something is found, the plant ceases to exert effort in that direction and begins to absorb the available nutrient. As the nutrient is absorbed, the plant pushes further until it meets resistance. Resistance is not the universe telling you, ‘you cannot’ only that there is perhaps an easier way. Sometimes, there is no easy way. Plants are grown from small vulnerable seeds, easily crushed under foot. But yet, a single blade of grass can crack pavement, which a million trodding feet could not crush. Pursue those things that make you feel strongly; Like a plant in search of sun, and you will achieve what you seek. There will be no resistance.

Resistance can be thought of as ‘negative energy’. Do you wake up in the morning, to some clamorous noise, wishing only to stay abed, hating the very thought of putting your feet on the floor? Wishing, that for once, the cares of the day would just care about themselves, and leave you out of it? Did you know, you can do that? The world, will indeed go on. If the Pope can quit, so can you. Sometimes, ‘doing’ just gets to be too much. Resistance. Perhaps, it is time to be instead of do. It’s hard for a reason. Maybe it’s the universe trying to tell you, you’re cutout for something else. Not a pre-punched cardboard cutout; A special snowflake, made by the hand of a child; That child is you. You shaped yourself by participating in a shared reality, full of other individuals shaping, and being shaped. Your snowflake is unique, there is no other quite as unique as yours. Some people will think it’s weird, misshapen, or tatty. That is okay. If you wanted your snowflake to fit in a mold, you’d have used a die cutter.

Die cut snowflakes are perfect, perfectly uniform; Perfectly the same. Like the ticky-tacky cookie-cutter houses, in a large development conglomerate. There, you must participate in a home owners association, and mustn’t to anything to upset the perfect uniformity of the neighborhood. You’re likely to be brought up on charges, if your front grass is half an inch too long, or… Your undisciplined and irresponsible child left their bicycle in front of the garage door. Some people find such outward displays of conformity to be comforting, and pleasing. I do not. I find places where everything and everyone are nearly identical, a bit like the Twilight Zone. As if, the matrix in an effort to conserve memory, has rendered at the lowest possible complexity. Recycling, and reusing a many textures, and interaction scenarios as possible. Woe betide unto you if your khakis are the wrong shade of tan, in these bastions of uniformity. Or, heaven help you, your skin! If you look closely enough, even at things that appear on the surface to be identical, you will find an infinite number of minute differences; Determined by the resolution at which you are viewing a thing at a given time. Do to the fractal nature of ‘reality’ you can zoom in, or out indefinitely. By zooming in, you can observe the minutest detail. Or by zooming out, have an epiphany about the ‘big picture’; Perhaps, coming to realize that things are the same on every level (more or less). It’s the contrasting minutia that highlights the differences between the very large, and the very small. Only when you cease struggling long enough to observe these details without resistance, do they come in to focus.

When you achieve focus, everything becomes clear. You will face no resistance in making choices. You can enjoy your journey fully, and if faced with a crossroads, the signs will be clear and you will instinctively select the correct path. If you arrive at a crossroad, and none of the signs seem to be pointing to something you feel strongly about, maybe you aren’t on the correct path. Meandering is okay. It’s an important part of finding the correct path. Like a plant, putting forth many tendrils in all directions, growing more where it finds the good. But, you aren’t a plant. Your place in life is not static. You don’t have to grow where you are planted. If the place in which you are planted, is devoid of joy; If it feels like you’d just be better off not living… By all means, pick yourself up by the roots, and plant yourself somewhere else. Fleeing in the face of adversity isn’t always the best course of action. Just as there is a fine line between bald faced cowardice, and fleeing an over-matched foe – ‘living to fight another day’. There is a difference between a dry spell, and the Sahara desert. It’s up to you to discern that difference.

Polite society is built upon the repression of the self, for the good of the whole. i.e. Don’t be too weird, or other people won’t like you. Don’t be an individual; Be individualistic. It’s quite easy to be driven mad by an inundation of mixed messages. It’s like being a giant centipede of people sewn together arse to mouth, defecating into each other’s faces. Come to think of it, that’s a rather fitting analogy for a certain social media site… Look at me, Look at my FACE. Look at my fodder. Look at my cool stuff. Look at what an ‘amazing’ time I’m having! Look at the other people, who have looked at my stuff. They said it was cool, ’cause I said their stuff was cool too. Look at it… LOOK AT IT! Tell me how much you like it. LIKE IT NOW! It’s a bit silly really. Why?

Because at the end of the day, the only person who has to listen to the voice in your head;  Possibly taunting you with the success of others, or sniggering at their failures, being overly concerned with how many people liked what you said; Or, the things that you have, the things that you do; Or… Only said that you did or have, because you thought other people would think it was cool… That voice is still you. Ergo, the opinions of others are in fact, self-inflicted. Why are you hitting yourself? Why are you hitting yourself? Stop hitting yourself! Except, the proverbial big brother on the other end of your arm, is still you.

A mad person couldn’t care less about societal norms. A mad person is truly themselves, for the sake of being so. The opinions of others are utterly irrelevant to the mad person; Just as irrelevant as if they were instead, insane. The circumstances under which someone may become mad, or insane are quite similar. However, the reaction to the circumstance is what makes the difference. At some point in your life, you will be presented with a very clear choice. Do you choose to be oppressed, or do you choose to be free. Do you choose to love your life, or to hate it. Is your life worth dying for; Is your death worth living for? ‘Till the sheer joy of existence, drives you mad. Perhaps, you choose to hate your very existence, ’till its repugnance drives you insane… Or maybe, you choose to constantly float someplace in the middle; Ever fluctuating between madness, and insanity. Dwelling in a special little place between the two, lovingly called by the poor frightened sheeple who live there, sanity. Dutifully taking care of the worries as they come, and enjoying some occasional joy while floating above the doldrums.

I choose joy. I choose a bit of madness. You may choose as you like, which is why it is called a choice. A choice you get to make a hundred times a day. Will you do what is expected, or will you do what you want to do. Will you say what is customary, or will you say what is really on your mind?

Life is a series of choices, doing or not doing – To be or not to be – Be a round peg in a square hole, fit in… But don’t fit in. A circle has no corners in which shadows may hide. Don’t be a square, don’t fit into a box. When you are ‘square’, aspects of your true self, you hide in the corners. In shadows, that others may not know your true self, because of fear. Fear nothing; Do not fear nothing. A void is but an empty canvas, and a fully laden palette awaiting the artist’s stroke. That artist, is you. Be yourself, and encourage others to do likewise! If everyone spent more time being themselves, there would be a good deal fewer busy bodies.

SONIA BARRETT: “War In The Matrix — How Our Minds Are Programmed To Create This Sick Reality”

salvador-dali-fascinations-10.jpg

Just how much of what we see and think is visual and mind manipulation? This current reflection of the Earth plane — the matrix of our perceived reality — is overshadowed by a projection of war.

For several years now we the inhabitants of this reality have been receiving the programming for war and diseases through movies, television video games and the media.

We receive our programming for every aspect of our lives from love, hate, happiness, clothes, food, mates, careers, cars, insurance, and reminders of our human limitation and so on.

What we fail to remember is the holographic nature of reality based on the human brain.

Everything in our visual path is a holographic composition presented by the brain, as the lens of the eyes reflect tones of light back to the optic enter in the brain, the optic nerves then projects the brains frequency translation through the cones and rods in the eyes, capturing and bringing form to frequency patterns.

Modern day scientists have achieved a level of understanding regarding the manipulation of brain wave patterns. Our weaknesses are understood as we exist as beings operating within fields of emotions. The strongest of which is FEAR.

It is also understood that we are a society of beings struggling to understand who we are spiritually or non physically. Innocence of our spiritual history has made us vulnerable as we continue to seek for a higher power separate from ourselves.

We have been conditioned to accept what has been defined as human limitations combined with the impossibility to reach outside of time and space. We have not been encouraged to educate ourselves on the function of the brain, the nervous system and the energetic construct of thought.

A thought is the activation of a certain group of neurons within the brain transported through the spinal fluid. Spinal fluid is produced in the ventricles of the brain.

In the words of Dr. Stone, founder of Polarity Therapy:

The cerebrospinal fluid seems to act as a storage field and a conveyor for the ultrasonic and the light energies. It bathes the spinal cord and is a reservoir for these finer energies, conducted by the fluidic media through all the fine verve fibres as the first airy mind and life principle in the human body.

The cerebrospinal fluid conveys the energies of the mind throughout the body! Mind energy is considered to be the first principle of life. Mind functions in the body as the light of ‘intelligence.’

Here we can see the importance of the thought process as every thought is being processed throughout every cell in the body.

What does this have to do with “war in the matrix”?

As quoted from The Dancing Wu Li Masters:

According to a number of scientists, “What is “out there” apparently depends in a rigorous mathematical sense as well as philosophical one, upon what we decide “in here”.

The new physics tells us that an observer cannot observe without altering what he sees. Observer and observed are interrelated in a real fundamental sense. The exact interrelation is not clear, but there is a growing body of evidence that the distinction between the “in here” and the “out there” is illusion.

Access to the physical world is through experience. The common denominator of all experiences is the “I” that does the experiencing. In short, what we experience is not external reality but our interaction with it.”

We most often forget that we are tied into this reality based on our emotional output. Emotions determine the electromagnetic input and output within the human body and all surrounding energy fields.

Emotions are electromagnetic wave patterns inextricably combined with thought. They form the skeletal structure of our belief system which is reflected in the manner which we live our lives.

Emotional impulses determine the chemical/hormonal production within the ventricles of the brain. Once an acceptable perception of reality is solidified in our minds it becomes the only probability and perception within our minds. Being the observer we solidify reality through emotion expressed through thought.

Thought is energy in motion, solidifying and becoming our reality. Human thoughts are trapped within lower frequency waves resulting in human confinement to this matrix. Perceivable reality is simply a state of consciousness.

It is the field of thought or thought field in which we become entranced. Each moment of reality is being reflected from the field of energy radiating from thought.

Ultimately we exist in our MIND. We exist in an individual mind space while sharing an overall collective space of mind. It is the collective state of mind that holds this holographic/virtual reality in its present existence.

This is a chess game, a scientifically layered design of rulers and subjects, an illusion of power and the battle for your WILL. It is the great deception of the true rulers and subjects.

We exist in an uncertainty of the ownership of ones Will. It is of utmost importance that an understanding of WILL is incorporated into our endless quest for spiritual identity. It is the Will that is the driving force of our descent through time into matter.

WILL is the thrust of Energy that provides the force needed to reach into the VOID to bring forth the essential codes of light to create that which has been born in the imagination, the image-in-action.

There are multiplicities of those known as ascended masters who continue to operate in deception, subtly enforcing and maintaining control over the vulnerable minds of humanity. Each organization or individual may justify such embracement of attachment as different from his/her brother.

Within all religions, occult and new age truths are held numerous predecessors of man who remain GAME keepers of this plane. Man’s need to worship outside of himself has been the signature of approval for on going control of his mind.

Such entities that are no longer apart of this plane are stuck and exist within the planes that surround the playing field of Earth.

They sustain their existence by feeding off of the emotional output of humanity; intercepting human thought field by continued injection of frequency patterns of fear, guilt, shame, pain, doubt, jealousy, lack and attachment.

The deception is of such a heightened nature that such beings create a level of comfort within the human mind by providing a balance of insightful knowledge. This creates continued trust, loyalty and attachment to the parasitic entity that has been providing an illusion of freedom.

The Sovereignty of humanity is a feared occurrence as it will bring an end to the actions of the puppeteers and the smoke and mirrors.

We exist in the age of ENLIGHTENMENT which has been born out the cosmic timer of cycles; cycles representing shifts in frequencies spiraling down from inconceivable cycles, beyond light years in the future, which is our past.

Within our realm of understanding we can catch a glimpse of such unfolding through the four quarters of 26,000 year cycles, the end of which we are now experiencing.

It is because this great time of cosmic graduation that has opened the door to the surrounding planes, bombarding our time, our current reality with numerous entities coming forth through various channels.

The lives of many have become dependent on the instructions of these beings. This becomes an interception of alignment to the ONE.

The confusion of the structure of over souls and the necessity to be identified with figures of prominence identified in human history is of great distraction and deception. The alter ego becomes the target and the driving force of the journey.

The GAME encompasses all things, seeking life through human emotion. The human need to belong and to be accepted drives the ego to find and provide this candy to the human child.

We need only change our mind, our collective perception of this impending war. Humanity collectively holds the key to the release of the illusion of war.

Although this is a planet filled with many warlords from other parts of our galaxy, many have laid down their swords and have transcended the need to participate in probable wars.

The power lies within the minds of humanity. The self appointed officials of this reality are counting on the spiritual ignorance of the planet.

They have developed technology that will now allow numerous holographic projection much of which can be done through the alteration of brain waves through sound and light projection. HARRP is one such technology that is capable of such brain modifications.

It is essential that we educate ourselves on this vessel/ship called a human body. Much of this vessel has been deactivated for quite sometime. Melatonin for example is essential to the harmonic balance of the body.

After mid night melatonin is converted into pinoline. We then enter into a space of amnesia. By 3:00 am we begin to experience what is know a prophetic or lucid dreaming.

As stated by Mantak Chia:

The darkness actualizes successively higher states of divine consciousness, correlating with the synthesis and accumulation of psychedelic chemicals in the brain. Melatonin, a regulatory hormone, quiets the body and mind in preparation for the finer and subtler realities of higher consciousness.

The hormone Pinoline affects the neuro-transmitters of the brain, permits visions and dream-states to emerge in our conscious awareness. Eventually the brain synthesizes the “spirit molecules” 5-MeO-DMT and DMT, facilitating the transcendental experiences of universal love and compassion. — The Prana Program – Effective & Enjoyable Evolution

Belief systems based on the emotional output of fear shuts down the production of these major chemical that were once produced in the womb and in infancy through the age of 7 and 12. These chemical/hormones are known as 5-Meo-DMT and DMT. These are amino acids.

The pharmaceutical and food industry have played a major role in providing suppressive inducement to the human brain.

We have become a society obsessed with food, mainly cooked food, fast food and junk food. All of which alter the harmonic function of the brain and the nervous system, both of which are essential in the awakening process.

When heat is applied to food through the process of cooking, this becomes a chemistry experiment as heat immediately destroys essential enzymes and amino acid Tryptamines serotonin, melatonin, pinoline, 5-MeO-DMT and DMT.

Tryotamines and beta-carbolines are known as psychoactive indoles both interacting with the nervous system through the synthesizing of neurotransmitters.

As essential enzymes are destroyed the natural progression or conversion of these hormones are inhibited, lessening the probability of the natural occurrence of transcendental experiences. We become disconnected from the awareness of the connected force of the energies beyond linear time.

We exist purely in an external reality. It is said that the body is addicted to approximately 20 amino acids or more — consisting of the enzymes MAO which destroy our neurotransmitters while stimulating an addiction for foods that encourage the repetition of this cycle.

This is the manner in which the food industry manipulates our existence and or belief system.

Through ignorance we have become the fuel that drives the vehicle of the corporate world. Our minds are controlled through numerous measures. We must however understand that we have allowed it, for we have given our permission even in our defense of ignorance.

This is not about blame, but it is about awakening and recognizing the choices that we have made and to change those choices for the enhancement of our own evolution. No one can save us; no one is coming to save us.

This is an individual journey and we must find our own way back to the state of alignment, the state of Oneness.

To further define reality…

Reality is “I” projected outward as multiple characters, viewed through the window of my mind. From the Apex or point zero, the One has descended down the ladder of time becoming the many.

NAVEEN KUMAR: “Lucid Dreaming… Exploring Inner Dimensions”

astral-projection-erik-jansson-11

“And in dreams the mind beholds its own immensity.

~Naveen Kumar

 

Dreaming is surely be considered the most wonderful mysteries of the sleep; then how much more so must be considered the lucid dream, in which dreamers know that they are dreaming and are in a certain sense awake, and yet are in deep asleep. A very sensitive state of consciousness that differs from the ordinary dream state. And in dreams the mind beholds its own immensity. What has been seen is seen again, and what has been heard is heard again. What has been felt in different places or faraway regions returns to the mind again.  Seen and unseen, heard and unheard, felt and not felt, the mind sees all, since the mind is all.

During sleep the soul moves from one plane of consciousness to another. The soul is like a free bird. If the physical consciousness wants to observe what the soul is doing, it has to allow itself to be molded and guided by the soul’s light. Only then can one expect to be conscious twenty-four hours a day. If you wish to be more conscious of your experiences during sleep, the best thing to do is to spend more time in meditation.

DREAMS vs LUCID DREAMS

In the dream state the doors or windows of the senses are shut. The mind remains alone and plays. It is the subject and it is the object. It projects various sorts of objects like space, mountains, rivers, gardens, etc., from its own body from the material collected during the waking state. It manufactures curious mixtures and marvelous combinations. Sometimes the experiences of the previous births that are lodged in the causal body flash out during the dreaming state. Where as in Lucid dreaming, the dreamer is partly conscious or awake and aware of his dream state and he can also experience the realities of both physical and dream planes.

In lucid dreams, people witness strange sensations and events and that usually does not seem in the material world. These sensations includes, finding yourself in the middle of chaos, flying alone in the space, free-falling, sleep paralysis etc.

The experience of sleep paralysis occurs when your mind partly wakes up, but your body remains asleep. Physically asleep, you stay paralyzed. But mentally conscious, you may start to panic and the half-dreaming mind conjures up nightmarish images to explain what is happening, often based on cultural beliefs.

One more interesting thing about lucid dreaming is, it is possible to be lucid and have little control over dream content, and conversely, to have a great deal of control without being explicitly aware that you are dreaming. Once lucid, dreamers usually choose to do something permitted only by the extraordinary freedom of the dream state. One can have the choice to control on dream events. For example, you could continue with whatever you were doing when you became lucid, with the added knowledge that you are dreaming.

LUCID DREAMS AND OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCE (OBE)

Studies says, OBE is also considered as a type of lucid dream. Both includes the techniques that are virtually identical to Wake Induced Lucid Dreams. They are virtually the same phenomenon. Out of body experiences are personal experiences during which people feel as if they are perceiving the physical world from a location outside of their physical bodies. The human consciousness separating from the human body and traveling in a discorporate form in the physical world. During an OBE, even though you experience your consciousness outside your body, still linked to your physical body (Like Anchoring a boat to the shore). Here comes the difference in OBE vs Astral Projection, where consciousness completely get separated and moves freely out-of-body and receives not commands from physical body. And it’s entirely depends on the person who is experiencing and controlling the process. When the experience is over, you return to your body and merge your consciousness back into it.

With great practice and concentration, one can easily convert OBE to an astral projection. We can say astral projection is a well-controlled lucid dreaming.  However astral projection is also possible without having lucid dreaming. To achieve perfection in Astral projection, one need to have an absolute knowledge about the physical body, controlling the senses and extreme concentration levels.

Benefits of Lucid Dreams

Lucid dreams give the most wonderful experience to the one who is practicing in his/her life.

1 .  The main thing that attracts people to lucid dreaming is the potential for wild adventure and fantasy fulfillment.

2 .  Lucid dreaming may well be the basis of the most effective therapy for nightmares.

3.  By properly practicing and controlling Lucid dreaming, one can expand their limits of consciousness.

4.  As lucid dreaming creates a bridge between unconscious mind and conscious mind, lucid dreaming may well be the basis of the Astral projection.

5.  With Lucid dreaming one can experience limitless freedom from the material world.

6.  With lucid dreaming, one can experience unlimited freedom and can explore the world/realms beyond the physical/material world.

7.  Lucid dreaming breaks the boundaries and incredibly improves your creative potential.

8.  Useful in healing: Healing always starts from a thought that “you are going to heal”. So by training your mind, you are going to heal your mental health and by healing your physical health.
