In my waking breath, I start and start again this day’s long pace.

I have a choice to walk it right or throw the day to waste?

Can stay captive to the mind-noise that yesterday I fought,

or carry forth the truth set in unencumbered thought.

 

I can busy [me,] my self, in the ego-sea of [me,]

or journey to a world of those around who’ve been set free.

Can nod to no importance, ignore beauty through my eyes,

or linger in the peacefulness, seeing splendor beyond the skies.

 

If my heart is beyond shallow I won’t hear the crying sound,

I’m destined to the sadness of a horrid day gone down,

and patterns that have made Me [me,]

repeating, reseeding, a lost strategy.

 

This thing we’re all built on, truth and love and willing,

it’s time to set a new stride and keep the dark from killing.

It’s time to offer Gratitude and Loving arms embrace,

it’s time to see our lives are just a wasteland ‘cept for Grace.

“A life without love is of no account. Don’t ask yourself what kind of love you should seek, spiritual or material, divine or mundane, Eastern or Western. Divisions only lead to more divisions. Love has no labels, no definitions. It is what it is, pure and simple. Love is the water of life. And a lover is a soul of fire! The universe turns differently when fire loves water.” – Rumi

[This montage image was produced with a series of photos taken with an iPhone while imagining nothing and beginning with no idea for the outcome. It was spontaneous combustion, through the sheer joy of experimentation and exploration. A photographic doodle of sorts.]

The world of form is enlivened by our senses, without which we would have no response to life. Those senses spark emotions inside us that play with the mind and move us to communicate responses. We are the experience of our perceptions.

With all the shuttering-in we’re a part of now I thought it would be nice to post back our “Journey to 500.” A guided meditation through time, it can be a salve and a calming for our jittered state. So put on the headphones, find a gazing point and get ready for your flight into the future of your mind, your body and your soul.

 

Listen&Learn

The problem with social media is many things, but the one most dangerous is the loss of our ability to listen. In its heyday, it was a source of fun and togetherness and entertainment. Now, the demon that lies within has raised its ugly head and manifested a HATE system that is tearing the very fabric of civil debate apart. It has brought the ego to participate in the world of opinion, even when the knowledge needed to form an opinion is lacking in strength. We have allowed propaganda to seep into our lives, and without any further investigation, we take this propaganda to be the truth. Our emotional bodies, in cahoots with the ego, form a formidable army against the truth that lies in actual facts about a person or subject matter. In short, we’re lost in the jungle of angry beasts.

Most of us can’t keep our mouths shut. We are the purveyors of information. We rely on tidbits we’ve heard from here or there, and even worse, from propaganda mongers that saturate the airwaves. We’ve lost the ability to listen with unbiased ears. The action of righteous thought is lost in the cavern of ego-play. We’ve become cult-like. Remember the infamous Jim Jones and his cyanide-laced punch. They certainly did drink the Kool-Aid, with dire consequences. Are we?

Now we are caught in a Made-For-TV movie of catastrophic proportions. When the global response should be for the betterment of humankind, instead it is one of continued political divisiveness and dystopic personal opinion running rampant. Our goals are skewed, and if we continue on this path of self-righteous arrogance our outcome is bleak.

I’ve tried to bring to this blog ideas that are centered in a place of Soulful attentiveness, and with that, a mix of ideas that will inspire us, to help broaden our views and enhance our lives. Bruce Lipton is one person I feel can bring us some of that light. He is an American developmental biologist who supported the theory that gene expression could be influenced by environmental factors, i.e. environmental factors have a greater impact on health than genetic research has previously determined. If you like what you hear in this YouTube clip you might want to check out more of Dr. Lipton at his website. https://www.brucelipton.com/

And before you jump to conclusions I hope you will start listening.

There is that moment showered in grief and sorrow when the center of your body seems to lose all feeling. Even that pit in your stomach is gone. The emptiness that prevails is both alarming and curious, for within that moment there appears a vibration that creates such a harmonic blend of light that you feel a tremendous sense of aliveness. If you are at all in tune with that vibration you are blessed with a feeling of love that transcends the mind-body experience. For all-at-once, you vibrate into that space where all things and no-things preside. You can feel it so deep in your molecular structure that taking flight is no longer a myth. You are there in that place between all worlds where the Divine touches the physical plane. It is wondrous.

Life is changing as we know it. Even if the ignorance, that lords over this planet, remains somewhat intact, the many who rise above the loneliness of separation from the one will be born into a new life of Gratitude and Grace. If nothing else, we will enjoy a life of empathy and compassion for our fellow humans.

Yesterday I posted a short film of The Tibetan Book of the Dead, narrated by Leonard Cohen. It explained the process by which Tibetan Lamas help the soul cross over into the larger realm of Consciousness and provide a pathway for reincarnation into a new form.

I’ve noticed many visitors to this site read the epilogue to Book One of Letters from 500, “Why Souls Come To Earth.” The internal urging to learn about the voyage from the inner worlds to the physical earth seems obvious and it gives a little more knowledge into the essence of the soul and its movement through conscious evolution. It seems appropriate now to visit the epilogue of Book Two of Letters “Why Soul Leave The Earth.”  Though death is inevitable for all of us, it is the hope of this writer that we all live long and prosper.  In appreciation for all we have and the state of Grace that is blessed upon us.

“O, I’ve been thinking about this series of letters we’ve just finished.”

“And you have a question?” your response is quick.

“How did you guess?”

“Go ahead. I’ve been expecting you.”

“It seems all our talk about portals could be looked upon as a form of escapism, like getting away from the old Earth. Why do we want so bad to leave this place? After all, we’ve chosen to be here, haven’t we?”

“Yes, of course,” you reply. “But it is only natural to feel like it’s all too much. Tell me what you think humans want to escape from.”

I muse, “Well, we have a frantic, dangerous, toxic world right now. It seems to be rapidly overheating and unraveling. But the bigger issue behind it all is obviously ‘the ego’. We want to escape it! And yet, now that I think about it, the ego itself probably wants to escape too. It could see escaping as another means to create separation and stress. There’s a lot of stress around this planet these days.”

“And?”

“I guess I’d have to say it’s egos creating the stress that egos want to escape from.”

“Good one.”

“A world full of egos is a horrendous place,” I continue. “It’s crazy. You know that. I feel it even more acutely now that I’ve had the glimpse of awakening you gave me.”

“Tell me what you remember of that.”

My mind goes quiet at your suggestion. I feel energy streaming in. “You know, I’d have to say awakening is really not all that far beyond us. You said it from the start, of course.”

“Yes?”

“It’s basically appreciation, isn’t it. What was so wonderful about being vigilan-for-a-day, was the continuous state of appreciation I felt. We humans are capable of something like that even now—just not the ‘continuous’ part. What serenity and oneness and…!” Suddenly words fail me; I’m back in the vigilan awareness. Warmth and peace flood through my mind in a vigorous stillness.

You ask, “What is it?”

“It’s the feeling of Oneness, of being at one with the moment. Thats what I learned. What appreciation really gives you is the presence of Now. Or maybe it’s the other way around. Having that sense of Now gives you appreciation.”

“Just so. I’d say you’ve got it,” I feel you grinning. You say, “Vigilans do not rely on time to feel appreciation. Through your eyes, I’m seeing more clearly what vigilans do. Appreciation is a timeless quality that we stream into time. Indeed, you have made a breakthrough in understanding the Now. If you would be in the moment, simply appreciate what is. If you want to appreciate, then be in the moment. They are one and the same.”

“OK. That sounds good.” My brow wrinkles. “But ‘what is’ includes everything that is, right? Good and bad both? How can you appreciate unpleasant—or worse—harmful or evil things? Can you actually value that?”

“Yes, we can. For appreciation to work the way it does, it must link us with Source, with the origin of every manifested form. In the ego world, there are many forms that are unhealthy and unconscious—and yes, evil. We can appreciate these forms as necessary elements in the parade of evolving consciousness. We do not have to condone or engage them to appreciate their place in creation.” (more…)

It’s difficult for some to accept news from various outlets based on the bias brought on by hate-mongers and circus-like barkers. It’s important to remember that most journalists pride themselves on accurate reporting, based on facts not fictional tales conjured up to spread dissent. If the facts meet the criteria of truth then let them be spoken by those who have the integrity and courage to make them known.

At present, we are faced with something more than political fodder, we are faced with an enemy that takes no political side. This enemy doesn’t get to lobby those in Washington for favors on who gets taken down or not. This enemy will take down anyone in its grasp.

If you’re of a mind to discount anything but what you’re told from outliers of the truth then don’t waste your time reading this. It will only make you mad. If you have an open mind and can make judgments based on what has actually happened, rather than what you have been told, then please read on. And I wish everyone good health and long life.

The Lost Month_ How a Failure to Test Blinded the U.S. to Covid-19 – The New York Times

I’m in Hunker Mode. Hunkered down for the remainder of this life chapter until the powers that be let me know it’s safe again to go back into the water, or the streets, and the stores and the restaurants. Watching the news you’d think that your favorite apocalypse movie had become like a flash-mob suddenly breaking in on our every-day.

How many conspiracies have you read about, or heard about over the past week? It seems everyone has one or is fast to pass on someone else’s. Depending upon your level of cynicism, or not, you are led to believe there is something sinister in the wings. The noise is deafening and the brain reacts by absorbing it all, confused and dazed by the onslaught of opinions and delusions. When will it end? What is real, or  What IS real?

Perhaps the illusion of this Earth Consciousness is such an overwhelming concept that to understand it we must pierce the subtle veil that covers our physical form. We approach this life with our personal perception of what is real. That perception is individuated to each soul and our experience here works through the veil of that perception. Those who have pierced the veil, through intense meditation practices or other esoteric modalities understand the illusion and are not directed by it. Rather, they sit in the larger cosmic consciousness and are one with all that is. Conspiracies have been the engine of change for millennia. [Who knows the truth] is a thought, an idea, dictated through the mind, a mind veiled in the illusion of this realm of consciousness. Perhaps we should trust nothing but the true barometer that lies deep inside our divine heart, where the soul connection is made and the animation of our being begins. The silence that resides deep there holds the truth beyond the veil, and once sensed will make this life a matter of conscious evolution, not a matter of fact. Of course, there is always the idea that the Law of Karma has reacted to this dark period of self-serving greed and the apathetic lack of empathy, and is our ever-loving reboot.

Time for visionaries to rise above the bobble-heads. Start the thinking process with clear minds, untainted by mesmerized beliefs. The fools that think they know the world are now finding themselves lost in it. It’s time for the best of the best to take charge. It’s time for change!

Like the Lotus flower, born out of mud, rising up through the muck to the light of the sun, so too is the consciousness of our minds and our belief systems. Out of fear we gather into cult-like groups, unable to see the truth through the confusion of our minds. Protected by ego’s lust for life we stand determined to see only what allays our fears, what does not challenge us, in spite of the truth that lies beyond the muddled veil. For we are held in the embrace of separateness, and cannot imagine the love of Oneness that yearns for our attention.

I chanced upon this excerpt from “Letters – Portal.” Perhaps we should remember that the thing that ties us all together is the divine aspect of our eternal beings.

To the One It Does Concern,

“We speak to you—as you, friends. Our voice comes from the deep Source that lies within us all. It speaks to the Oneness within and around you. It is the wake-up call of the still, small voice that lives beyond all individuation and separation. Our voice is joined into the web of the living word. Why should it be thus? Why is the Oneness speaking to itself through you? Why is it living itself through you?”

“There is no answer to the question ‘why’. But in asking it, we invoke the mystery of our shared being. The question is the presence, stretching out into wakefulness and wonder. Know that the circuit must complete itself through you. The electromagnetic—and electro-magical—forces must use you to come full circle into all the dimensions. Be of use!”

“This is our injunction to you all, to us all. Make the best and clearest use of the portal you have been given. You are that portal, as surely as you have a mind to ask the question ‘why’. Make clear your way into the moment. There is no greater blessing than being the opportunity that you are.”

“Well, well, is that you, O? You sound a little different.”

“This is the voice of our group speaking to the wider group of humans who are coming to their wakefulness now. We begin this way, that there may be a volume of energy poured forth into your presence, and in a way that will not be mistaken for anything less than the urgency of your age. We speak with Oneness, for Oneness, to the Oneness lying within you all. It is time to allow the ways to open, and to know what you know, what you have suspected for ages and kept hidden in your silence.”

“Your group is speaking to humanity?”

“Only to those with ears to hear; that is, with their fields of resonance tuned to our frequency. Many will not hear these words at all. They will receive other words, other voices. But hear you shall—each and every one. You are all hearing now; though not all are yet listening. You are all touching the Apocalypse, but not all are yet feeling what is touching them in return. What is happening now in your time is the ancient, perennial ‘quickening’ of awareness. You can feel it in the waters of your flesh, in the pulse of your breath. It is rattling the molecular foundations of your species.”

“Yes. I think I’m hearing and listening to what you say. Though I never can be quite sure. Sometimes I reread your materials and discover new thoughts I didn’t see before. I think I get it, and yet I still miss so much.”

“Such is natural. These words, from Source, are living. They come from deep down, under all; they move within themselves and vibrate endlessly. They change their form and wavelength in response to the listener and to the outpouring waves of magic and magnetism—in-breath, out-breath, in, out, pause. They are washing you alive. They will naturally transform and increase themselves in your mind, as Life continues to flow within them. Come and be nourished by this tide.”

“May I ask a question?”

“Certainly, brother.”

“What does ‘Oneness’ really mean to you? Why do you use that word so much? How are we to relate to it?”

“Thank you. Oneness is the vehicle for awakening. There is no other way to move beyond your current state of consciousness and your ego-world, than by entering and riding this vehicle. It is the presence of us all, united, sharing and grouping. And yet, it is far beyond that as well. It is union before union, the center before the circle; it is formlessness before the form. Verily, it is the form of formlessness. All radiance comes within its spark. Its fire ignites the passion of our charge. With Oneness, we will cross the great divide and find the passage through the eye of the Storm.”

“Oneness touches everything, feels everything, is everything. Yet it is not just this. It is also the Void and the Source and the Presence and the Voice. There is no concept that it is not. And yet there is no concept for what it truly is. In the meat of paradox it converges, albeit glancingly, with our earthly comprehension. To know it, to experience it, you may fly to the farthest reaches of your imagination and wisdom, or you may dive down into the fibers of your essence, in the moment, the ordinary station of your steps upon this Earth. It is everywhere you would seek to find it. But beware, what seems to be, is not real. Your seeking keeps you from truly seeing.”

“Let go all your preconceptions of what Oneness is. Long have you sought it by not finding it. Find it by not seeking it. Now is the time to know. What a joy to share this time with you all. It is the wonder of the passing of a Great Age. You are, as one, passing into the history of Now. All history lies in the moment of creation. All passages lead into themselves. They are each, Source and destiny.”
