Technology Similes to Better Understand Life

The last few decades of technological achievements have provided numerous chipforbrainblue77.jpginnovations to ponder.  New information and new ways of living our lives are now aspects of current cultural and social advancements that previously were only considered as the subject matter of science fiction novels.

And likewise, we have new ways of ‘understanding something completely new’ by comparing it to something vaguely familiar—something already existing.  In writing that ‘understanding a subject better by comparing the unfamiliar to that which is familiar’ using the words “as” or “like,” is called using a “simile.”

This matters WHY?

Well I’ve been reading Paul Selig’s trilogy Book of Mastery (Book I), Book of Truth (Book II), Book of Freedom (Book III); and I find that the subject matter described within is seligbooksandvibrationtextmore easily comprehended because of my existing beliefs in multi-dimensions, multiple-lives, energy work, etc, along with my minuscule knowledge of computer-related technology.  It is the last consideration that I’m using for this ‘simile material.’

Prior to perhaps three decades ago when average households began their meteoric acquisitions of personal computers, most of us had no concept of such things as virtual realities or databases, and especially no comprehension of electronic communications systems.  (Hard to imagine, I know.)

But way back then, multi-function calculators were considered “high-tech” devices, and everyone owned a land-line or had to use a public phone booth to call anywhere.  How many of those are still around?

So now that these relatively NEWER electronic marvels are considered common fare and the latest and greatest innovations are often conversation fodder in daily office banter, our personal understanding of “all things possible” has risen sharply over the last three decades primarily because of how fast our electronic technology is advancing, and with that advancement our understanding what was once incomprehensible, becomes blasé faire.   bookofmasteryselig5.jpg

However, back to Selig’s book series and how this all relates.

The subject matter described in Selig’s trilogy is actually what I have been blogging about for the last few years: The ability to shift our frequencies higher to tune into a higher reality—a higher consciousness, and live a more loving and compassionate life in the process.

With the rise of Virtual Reality games and movies, that mind-stretching has allowed most of us a glimpse into considering the possibility that the life we are presently living is as illusionary as the VR game that we are playing with our electronic devices.

And with this consideration in mind, that also means that this life we actually do live is changeable in a positive way if the “collective consciousness” of our time can shift all our attention out of the ‘fear and hatred frequencies’ and into the higher frequencies of lovingness often called Christ Consciousness or Buddha Consciousness, or even simply called enlightenment.

We use those well known and well documented human comparisons of Christ- and Buddha-behavior to help the masses comprehend that softer/gentler attitude and mode of behavior necessary to achieve a higher frequency collective shift.  We refer to those known masters who highercomnsciousnessblue55best demonstrated what that loving kindness attitude and behavior is, was, or could be. We use them as examples—similes for depicting the highest standards of loving kindness because it’s pretty hard to relate to a non-descript ‘something’ called a “frequency.”

The importance to consider here is far less about the personage—the myth—the story of the teacher or human model (like Jesus or Buddha), and more about the higher FREQUENCY of consciousness that those models attained and adopted to reach that level of loving kindness for everyone and everything.  Once those consciousness masters successfully shifted their own personal awareness, they shifted everyone and everything around them as well by simply holding that higher frequency within themselves, because when your direct connection to SOURCE is that strong, you simply radiate that higher frequency to all around you.

And when the frequency that we personally hold rises to that higher level of lovingnesss then the world around us begins to shift higher because it has to match the frequency that we collectively hold.  I think the point of the Selig series is in learning how to shift your own thinking and behavior into that higher frequency Christ-/Buddha-consciousness range.

(For more on the frequency levels of consciousness subject, eyeoftheeyehawkinsyou might want to read Dr. David R. Hawkins’ The EYE of the I, from Which Nothing Is Hidden. Hawkins focuses on tying all awareness into light frequencies and calibrating the consciousness levels between the general masses and the great avatars/teachers who reached that state of extreme expanded awareness. I’m not certain I agree with everything he says, but he gives a thorough explanation of the multiple levels of light frequency consciousness per his theory.)

Anyway, the Selig books may be of interest to some so I’m mentioning them, and I do think I’ve noticed a shift upward in my own thinking since I began reading them—not so much that this subject matter is new territory for me to consider, but that holding that consideration so strongly for longer periods of time, is helping me to stabilize the concepts in my mind and to “think” from those view points and SEE life in a more clear, unbiased manner because of them.  Or that’s just my opinion and/or delusion.

The main simile of importance here is the one on comparing this life to a Virtual Reality game where you choose your scenario and your actions during the game. If you stay in the ‘fighting and killing games,’ it’s pretty hard to raise your frequency into loving kindness.lifeasvrgame58.jpg

 

So maybe it’s time to choose a new Virtual Reality scenario for all of us to explore.  This ‘fighting and killing thing’ is going nowhere good for anyone.

 

 

 

Watching History Burn

Like many others, I was transfixed watching flames consume Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.notredamefire45.jpg

Unlike many others, I was sitting there not so much in tearful grief at the enormous loss, but simply pondering a greater significance—wondering if this was some transformative metaphor for the masses, of an iconic religious structure whose ancient dry timbers were igniting to signify the destruction of the old ways of viewing cultural religious icons to make room for newer spiritual/cultural beliefs.

For certain I do not wish to condemn any faith or belittle the beliefs of others, but back when that cathedral was first designed and construction had begun in 1160 then largely completed by 1260, the intention behind the religious structure was far more than simply worshipping a deity and set of beliefs in a particular way. There was a lot of engineering genius and human grandiosity designed into that structure, especially for that time period in history. And I’m sure it will be rebuilt to closely match the original designs. I have no doubt that it will rise again as the Parisian icon that it truly is. There should be no worries to the contrary.

beforefireapr2019notredame78.JPGBut I want to reconsider WHY that iconic cathedral was created in the first place.

Back in 1160, the 1st set of Holy Crusades had ended and the 2nd set of Holy Crusades were underway (and I use the term HOLY only in the recognition that this warfare was sanctioned by the European Kings of the land and the Popes of that time period who governed the common people using their papal religious authority as reasoning for killing all who were not Christian, and reacquiring land that had previously fallen to those who were not Christian. Lots of unholy deeds were done under the jurisdiction of and sanctioned by the Roman Catholic Church through the ages.

So back in 1160, this massive French cathedral was built to honor God, Jesus and The Virgin Mary in one sense, but also to honor the hubris of men of power during that time, who believed that one religion was superior to others and this cathedral should signify it northrosewindowndc56.jpgby its sheer structural magnificence—the grander, the taller, the more beautiful and amazing, the better.

This religious structure was so significant that the French King and Pope of the time were even in attendance at the foundation setting.

“The chronicler Jean de Saint-Victor [fr] recorded in the Memoriale Historiarum that the construction of Notre-Dame began between 24 March and 25 April 1163 with the laying of the cornerstone in the presence of King Louis VII and Pope Alexander III.[17][18] Four phases of construction took place under bishops Maurice de Sully and Eudes de Sully”  (Wikipedia)

So there are a lot of reasons why Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is historically and spiritually significant.

But in terms of true religiosity, here is another quote from Wikipedia:

“French census data does not contain information about religious affiliation.[168] According to a 2011 survey by IFOP, a French public opinion research organization, 61 percent of residents of the Paris Region (Île-de-France) identified themselves as Roman Catholic, though just 15 percent said they were practicing Catholics, while 46 percent were non-practicing. In the same survey, 7 percent of residents identified themselves as Muslims, 4 percent as Protestants, 2 percent as Jewish, and 25 percent as without religion. [169]

insidenotredamecath345.jpgSo the current significance of the Notre Dame Cathedral is now more cultural and iconic (rather than religious), especially as a well-known Parisian landmark with amazing architectural consequence.  It represents many things to many people, and it should be and WILL BE rebuilt.

But please recognize it for what it truly is in its historical significance as French Gothic architecture rather than the symbol of present day Catholicism.

A lot of folks had deep feelings of loss over the structure fire. In fact while watching it, even to me it felt like a part of our western history was burning to the ground before our eyes. But more than that, to some it felt like the symbolic heart of the Roman Catholic Church was being Divinely purified from within.

And to those who felt this was an amazing Divine Cleansing of original corrupt patriarchal/papal intentions and deceitful practices in the name of religious belief, it was truly quite the sight.

 

 

“The Garden of Forking Paths”

oOA netflix34.jpg

Ah yes, mid Netflix show, that quote caught my attention enough to write it down: “The Garden of Forking Paths.”

The show was “The OA” and it was spoken in an early episode of season 2.  And if anyone follows that particular series, you are open to considering multi-dimensional theory and the eternity of the Soul in its pure-light state that simply “samples” life in many different roles and many different settings throughout collective consciousness timeframes.

I assume the woman they call OA is the Divine Incarnate reference to the Alpha and the Omega, except it is reversed so that she is known as ‘the ending and the beginning’ (the Omega and the Alpha).  She is the Eternal One with self/True Self awareness—she is the aware and intentional traveler between or among all transitory lives.

multidimensionallivinglives56.jpgNow in theory we all travel many journeys and live many diverse lives throughout the created construct of TIME.  We ALL walk ‘the garden of forking paths.’  It’s just that most of us aren’t aware of doing more than one life at a time while staying within the parameters of that life experience.

OA had the option of shifting out of one life and into another but finding “the cast of players” seemed to be similar in those different lives. It’s just that few cast members remembered the others from one life to the next.

But, and it’s an important BUT, … she eventually realizes what happens in one life affects all other lives and affects all other participants in those other dimensions. Which means that whatever issues are resolved in one life, resolve smoothly in the other lives, and whatever issues remain unresolved prior to that person’s death in that life, are left to the other lives to resolve the issue in order to free the ‘karma,’ if you will, of all the original issue’s participants.

I know it seems complicated in a way, but to me who actually guides hypnosis clients through their own “Past-life Explorations,” it makes perfect sense; so I enjoy the interesting theories and subject treatments that this series explores.eternalone456.jpg

“The OA” isn’t a ‘warm and fuzzy’ nighttime tale, but it is a thought-provoking exploration of how we move through life in different situations with diverse and even life-threatening challenges; and how we confront shadow issues in ourselves and in others.

I thought season two of “The OA” took it to an even higher comprehension level.  And I applaud the writers for that.   Good stuff!  Well done!

 

 

The Goal of Wisdom

Been awhile since I’ve quoted Deepak, but here is an abbreviated excerpt from his recent article on self-awakening with the goal of WISDOM as our ultimate life purpose beyond just accumulating knowledge.

“Making Wisdom Your Most Important Goal

 https://www.sfgate.com/opinion/chopra/article/Making-Wisdom-Your-Most-Important-Goal-13713585.php?fbclid=IwAR3mJ0UoAka7mnZuIzfFjozV_tDJtEkT6_adz_xXMgGqwI4irKFjCgQLkto consciouslifebrain.jpg

 “…Waking up is a metaphor for the conscious life, and the conscious life is what wisdom leads to. Every day we are driven by unconscious impulses and desires, and unexamined processes go on beneath the surface of the mind that lead to anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, self-destructive behavior, and every kind of pointless discord, from household tensions to war.

… In one way or another, allowing our unconscious to go unexamined has caused the greatest and longest suffering in human history. It was suffering and finding a way to end it that became the foundation of Buddhism, but any spiritual teaching that will show people how to wake up also aims to bring them out of suffering.

In that sense, wisdom has a definite purpose, but escaping the ills and woes of the unconscious life is secondary to the main purpose of waking up, which is to know who we really are. The answer can be formulated in a few words: humans are a species of consciousness whose special trait is self-awareness. Being self-aware, we have the capacity to access the very source of awareness.

…We are a species of consciousness whose great pitfall isn’t evil but “mind-forg’d manacles,” to borrow a phrase from the poet William Blake. We make up mental constructs, invent stories around them, and tell the next generation that these stories are true. One story says that women are inferior, a complex tale that gave rise to a thousand injustices and false beliefs. Us-versus-them thinking leads to stories about racism and nationalism that caused their own barbarous results.

Waking up allows us to escape all stories and to live free of self-limiting mental constructs. The real question is whether it can be done. Can you and I wake up? If so, how do we go about it?

… Where prior generations had little grasp of higher consciousness beyond the precepts of religion, millions of people today can walk their own path to self-awareness, choosing to include God, the soul, organized religion, and scriptures as they see fit, or to avoid them. Even “spirituality” is a term you can adopt or ignore—the real purpose of waking up is about consciousness.

…We have always had the potential to be wise by using self-awareness to explore who we really are. A society driven by consumerism, celebrity worship, video games and social media gossip, and indifference to massive social problems feels like it could never find wisdom, or even the first impulse to wake up. But I’d argue that we are the most fortunate society to wake up in, simply because higher consciousness is open to anyone. I count this as the greatest opportunity facing us, to see that waking up is possible and to hasten toward it as quickly as we can.”

The TRUTH of Perception

What is TRUTH?

truthlightbehind33.jpg

 

TRUTH itself is a vibrational frequency that our bodies recognize at a higher level. There is deep vibrational harmony in TRUTH. The body, especially the heart, feels a sense of deep peace on hearing genuine TRUTH.

With genuine TRUTH there is no feeling of anxiety or fear. There can be a fear of hearing the truth, knowing the implications that TRUTH will bring with it, but TRUTH itself is a harmonious, energetic feeling. Similar to a lie detector registering the galvanic skin responses of a person wired up to it, the heart registers harmonious vibrations as trustworthy for consideration.

So TRUTH is a feeling that we all can recognize at the energy level of our being if we allow our more sensitive systems to register it.

So then what is PERCEPTION?mirror percept33

Perception is quite different than you might expect it to be. Perception utilizes the body’s natural sensing systems (sight, hearing, smell, touch, taste) to increase its awareness of the environment it encounters at any moment. The primary purpose for utilizing the body’s sensing systems is to alert the living being of the potential in any new experience for safety or possible hazards—which can likewise translate to the body’s ultimate survival or extinction.

But for this post, I will focus on SIGHT—how we perceive the world around us as based on what we SEE; and we SEE because the eye is a smart-lens that captures LIGHT in the visible wave-length form.

Our actual ability to SEE is dependent not only on the apparatus of the eye functioning properly, but is also dependent on the coordination between the eye’s ability to focus that 3f734161510233ed217565f592b1def7.jpgoutside light to cell receptors within the back wall of the eye that recognize the raw electromagnetic lightwave data appearing before it, and the brain’s natural computing/assessment skills to then interpret that raw electromagnetic lightwave data into meaningful images that we associate with pleasant or unpleasant feelings we have previously stored in our memory base.

If we are only babies, it takes a few years of daily experiences to build a pleasure/pain “feelings” database to gauge a new experience against a previously seen/felt one; i.e., pleasurable experience you may want to repeat and painful ones you definitely want to avoid. ‘Neutral feeling’ experiences are registered only as known data.electrospec68.jpg

As you can see from the pictures here, the entire electromagnetic lightwave spectrum is far beyond our eye’s ability to receive data from it. We don’t see low-end spectrum microwaves or radio/television waves. Nor do we see the high-end x-rays or gamma rays with our raw eye vision receiver, but we can “perceive” those frequencies using instruments that are capable of receiving and translating those non-visible lightwaves into more recognizable symbols for us. If you use a cell phone, radio, or television, you are utilizing electromagnetic lightwave spectrum translators. It’s just that we tend not to think about it in this manner.

But in considering the entire electromagnetic lightwave spectrum, visiblelightspec56.jpgour visual perception is pretty limited to the visible lightwave range of from 4 – 7.5 x 1014 Hz .

Of course there are night-vision goggles used today that can amplify existing light to see at night; as well as infra-red, heat sensing devices to recognize a heat signature. So we already know how to “see” more of the electromagnetic spectrum than our naked eyes can show us, but this advanced knowledge that we now consider as perceptual daily standards would have been inconceivable a hundred and twenty-five years ago, before the first x-rays were developed in 1895.

From a broader view, if you think there wasn’t some sort of “intelligence” behind designing humans to operate in the manner that we do, look again at the picture of how the visual receptors of the eye recognize specific light frequencies.  Somebody or something had a specific purpose in mind for the human body, because we are just too well designed not to have a higher purpose for existing.

***

Finally,…this will seem like a long way to get to the ultimate point of this post, but when I suggest that there are other “higher realities” out there in the ethers that we haven’t yet been able to tune into and receive their transmissions, this is what I’m really referring to: Our abilities to perceive reality as we know it and receive transmissions from optional “higher realities” once we are attuned to receive them, is what I believe is happening now.  Our personal receivers are being adjusted now to pull in previously inaccessible frequencies so that our viewing options may shift higher soon.

That is my belief and my hope. But beyond that, I have no proof.

My only suggestion is this: Tune into the frequencies of TRUTH and tune into frequencies of LOVE, and let’s encourage the higher viewing options to appear for all of us.

The First Important Step into NOW

52983613_10156891348016217_2341577759886671872_n.jpg

 

“The first important step into the NOW is to become aware of whatever surrounds you.”  ET

I personally think the second important step into the NOW, is to choose how you react to those surroundings, because it is one thing to comprehend what is happening to you and around you, but it is another thing entirely to remain unaffected by energy-draining surroundings or to fully utilize the energy-enhancing opportunities that they might represent.

So many philosophers have stated that the NOW is the only moment you actually have command of because it is occurring for you in every instant. While the past is long gone and the future is still in the process of becoming, the only control of your life that you actually have is to face the NOW with your highest intentions and the energy to manifest your future as you wish it to be.

No regrets change the past.  No anxiety hastens the future.

All you have for your every life decision is the NOW. That’s why it is so important to recognize it as such.

***

The other consideration for this Tolle quote is in exploring what I think he was more NOWtimeclock33likely referring to, which is that the NOW is the moment that can propel you into infinity. You can energetically expand yourself without boundaries into the NOW and instantly become the ALL. It’s an amazing experience, but one that can be quite disorienting to what we call our consensus reality.

Ah, …a memory just surfaced of an old Carlos Castaneda quote from one of his earlier books pertaining to this same “importance of the NOW” statement:

  “Everything we do, everything we are, rests on our personal power. Iccpicold55f we have enough of it, one word is enough to change the course of our lives. If we don’t, the most magnificent piece of wisdom can be revealed to us and that revelation won’t make a damn bit of difference.

Do you know that at this very moment you are surrounded by talesofpowerbookcceternity? And do you know you can use that eternity, if you so desire? Do you know that you can extend yourself forever in any direction and use it to take the totality of yourself forever in any direction? Do you know that one moment can be eternity?  If you had enough personal power, my words alone would serve as a means to round up the totality of yourself and get the crucial part of it out of the boundaries in which it is contained.”

-Spoken to Carlos by his teacher Don Juan Matus, in C.C.’s Tales of Power

(I think for better or worse what amazes me is that after 30-plus years, I am still quoting Carlos Castaneda.  🙂   But I really do recommend reading the entire set of books on his shaman’s tutelage by Don Juan. I think there are around a dozen of them in the set. Whether or not they are truly fact or fiction-based doesn’t make them less important, because the mental constructs that he creates are invaluable to expanding our concept of what our true energetic capabilities might be.)

As I mentioned in the earlier post “The Collective”:

“I think the increased possibilities of our collectively attuning to higher frequencies of existence are extremely important for everyone to at least consider, because you have to know that they do exist to even try to access them.”

timemagccpic44That’s what Carlos Castaneda did. He said these other realities existed. He said he’d been there. He described what he saw. And while he used hallucinogens to travel through most of those realms, it is possible and recommended to do so without them.

What I most want you to consider from all of this lengthy verbiage is that NOW is a powerful moment. It can be the first breath into a new life. It can be the first step toward a new perspective—a new way of seeing the world around you and seeing yourself interacting with that world.

NOW can also be the gateway to eternity and infinity—seizing this very moment can propel you into true possibilities that exist far beyond your daily comprehension. It is all a choice in how we view our options and how we seize those precious moments of NOW.

So as Eckhardt Tolle reminded us,

“The first important step into the NOW is to become aware of whatever surrounds you.”

And as I then further mentioned, the rest is up to you to take that moment wherever you wish.
