Where Are We?

wherearewequote55.jpg

The “WE” here refers to ALL of us as humans; and we are a diverse group.

We are gender-determined for species propagation purposes, but not limited by gender for all other purposes.

We are perpetual social studies in dichotomies: We are darkness and light, cruel and kind, selfish and selfless.

And right now at this moment in time, we are here—wherever that actually is in our human consciousness evolution.wherearewestopsign45.jpg

But WHERE exactly is that here?  Where on this evolutional consciousness-progression are we?

With all the vocalized hatred spewing throughout the airwaves, I’m finding it hard to determine the exact location of that group consciousness “WHERE” we might be.

I mean it should be pretty simple to determine, shouldn’t it, just by answering a few key question, like:

  • How do we want our world to be…for ourselves, for our families, for our neighbors, and for our brothers and sisters throughout the world?
  • How do we personally want to live—in loving acceptance of others or in constant fear of them?
  • How do we really want to consider others—as friends and comrades in this large group endeavor or as enemies competing for every earthly resource and every inch of ground?
  • And how do we ourselves wish to be viewed—as reliable, good people and trustworthy associates to others, or as unscrupulous, conniving predators eyeing any opportunity to advance our own agenda?

I could easily rant and rage here about our present state of world chaos but it’s senseless to do so, because unless each of us determines for ourselves the best possible solution to those “HOW” questions above, nothing in our lives will change for the better.

camefromwombquote.jpg

Are we simply WHERE we are meant to be both individually and as a group collective as determined by fate alone?

Or are we merely hiding our heads behind multiple daily distractions allowing others to make those necessary world changes for us—allowing others to make the key life choices for us?

Are we really that apathetic or deluded to believe “others”—particularly power-hungry, political others with their own personal agendas—really have our best interests at heart, so we will let them determine our lives for us?

We, as a species and a world culture, have such potential for greater overall heightened awareness and better understanding of each other’s unique attributes, gifts, and educational value to the larger human group.

And at the same time we have such innate tendencies toward shallowness, self-interest, and pettiness.

The chaotic world we know at present is the result of choices we have previously made; and the world of tomorrow will be the result of choices we have yet to make.

betterpersonquote67.png

 

Be present.  Be here NOW.

Be aware that the choice you make today to BE the better person in your own life and in the lives of those around you makes the difference tomorrow in our every earthly endeavor.

When you allow darkness to perpetuate through hate language or fear mongering, and you say nothing against it—when you say nothing to STOP IT—you are allowing it to spread like cancer throughout your own life and the lives of those you most love.

At some point where we are will no longer be an unanswered question due to the present inclination for so many of us to avoid those hard decisions to prevent hatred from consuming us.

It will likely remain unanswered because we as a species will no longer exist to ask it.

“Ultimate Manifestation”

What on earth is Ultimate Manifestation?

I’m alluding to a blurb in the book jacket of Paul Selig’s newest book soon to be released, called: Beyond the Known: Realization. seligbookcovrealization.jpg

Here’s the description:

“Expanding on and transcending his previous work, Realization, the first volume in the Beyond the Known trilogy, is composed of the pure, unedited words of the Guides as they share their wisdom and knowledge through Selig. It serves as a psychological-spiritual guide to take readers beyond the perceived limitations of accepted reality and open their minds to ultimate manifestation.

 

Maybe the erroneous words in my previous question were “What on earth…” because the book jacket interior mentions hypnotically ascending into what shamans would term “Upper World”—the higher dimension from earthly life where our energy bodies (spirits) go when the physical body dies.

Christians call it Heaven or the Kingdom.  Shamans simply call it Upper World.  I often upperworldshaman.jpgrefer to it as Spirit-world to avoid any religious associations.

So my next question would then be, if this blurb is referring to something called: the “Ultimate Manifestation,” does that mean that we are manifesting the Upper World dimension into this present earthly dimension, or are we somewhat “materializing/manifesting” some aspects of ourselves into Upper World?  Or is it a hybrid of both possibilities that is created when we actually shift our collective dimension into a somewhat higher-frequency plane than earth is, but not actually reaching the Upper World dimension?  Like a newer version of our reality, such as “Earth Reality 2.1.”  Maybe we are being upgraded?

I really don’t know.  Hard to say what it means especially since the book isn’t yet available to read—and I’m sure to some it’s hard to even imagine the possibilities of any of those options occurring.

Had I not visited Upper World myself a few times during my own shamanic journeys, I would have no idea to what he was referring.  But I have seen some aspects of Upper World—although my visits allowed into it were limited.

I’ve even guided hypnosis clients into that higher SPIRIT WORLD dimension where they met with their personal guides and discussed the “life lessons” that they had received prior to that particular past-life death that we had just explored from the vantage of a recliner in my hypnosis office on earth. etheralshamanicworld.jpg

One aspect of what I do in hypnosis is to guide a client into a Past-life Exploration or do a more in-depth Spirit-World Exploration.  From my various experiences (both personal and in helping others), I can say that when we all die, we go into Spirit-World (Upper World) where we assess the life just lived for lessons learned and for realizations made through living that previous earthly life.

We are instructed/assisted there (in Spirit World) by a master teacher or guide on better understanding why we just experienced what we did in that earth life; and we assess how those experiences best (or worst) affected us.  In most cases, we are then taken to a healing location in that Spirit World dimension where we are cleansed and purified and revitalized to cleanse our previous-life-lived, energy-body of traumas and emotional wounds (which is basically repairing any residual energy damage to our overall energy field) and to set the stage for what will happen next for us to explore/learn in subsequent incarnations into the earth plane classroom.

The explanation I’m providing on this subject matter may seem more simplified than it actually is in Spirit World; and some aspects spiritworldwebofspirit.jpgof that higher-frequency dimension are truly unrelatable to this earth dimension, so these descriptions often don’t translate well for our present comprehension levels, but… overall, I can readily say that I am personally aware that such a place as Upper World (or Spirit World) does exist, as are a few of my clients who also have experienced their own visits there.

And knowing that a place actually exists is half the battle to aspiring to reach it.

So when Selig says: “…It (the book) serves as a psychological-spiritual guide to take readers beyond the perceived limitations of accepted reality and open their minds to ultimate manifestation.”  …I’m guessing he’s referring to helping readers experience that nearly-incomprehensible, higher-frequency dimension for themselves so they can aspire to create it in their own minds and then make it their own reality.

If that is the case, when the book does come available just sit back and enjoy the journey as you read it.

 

 

The Quantum Field

“Based on my knowledge and experience, I believe there’s a self-organizing intelligence that is energy, and it is observing all the universes joequantum field quotr.jpg and galaxies into order. Sometimes people say to me that this idea seems a bit unscientific. I always answer with the same question: What happens after an explosion-order or disorder? Their answer is always that that disorder results. Then I ask: so why after the Big Bang, which was the biggest explosion ever, has so much order been created? Some intelligence must be organizing its energy and matter into form and unifying all the forces of nature to create such a masterpiece. The intelligence, the energy, is the quantum or unified field.”  Dr. Joe Dispenza

“Transformation of Consciousness”

Excerpt from the Worldview Dimension of Gaia Education’s online course in Design for Sustainability
(https://blog.usejournal.com/transformation-of-consciousness-6a911712da62?fbclid=IwAR0hcR0RHCpngi9uFt1o3sgWGsN_8o1W4HESxWTGKFStNtyIlFFI7UJW65I)

“The materialistic consciousness of our culture is the root cause of the global crisis.. Our whole civilization is unsustainable. And the reason that it is unsustainable is that our value system, the consciousness with which we approach the world, is an unsustainable mode of consciousness.” —Peter Russell

ionsconsciousnesstransformationmodel

“Both individuals and the western ‘financial success driven’ society as a whole seem to find themselves in a situation described by Joseph Campbell as “getting to the top of the ladder and finding that it stands against the wrong wall…” Our very nature is far more caring, loving, and empathic than we have been educated to believe.” —Daniel Christian Wahl

“Csikszentmihalyi believes that the next big evolutionary change in human consciousness may simultaneously acknowledge the self as separate from and fundamentally interconnected with the complexity from which it emerges. The individual, its culture, and the natural environment are simultaneously differentiated from each other and united into a larger complexity.”

“We are at the cusp, I believe, of an epic shift into a climax global economy and a fundamental repositioning of human life on the planet. The ‘Age of Reason’ is being eclipsed by the ‘Age of Empathy’. The most important question facing humanity is this: Can we reach global empathy in time to avoid the collapse of civilization and save the Earth?

— Jeremy Rifkin (2010, p.3)

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes … but in having new eyes” – Marcel Proust

Nassimseyeproustquote.jpg

Join Nassim Haramein and an international team of Resonance Science researchers on this voyage of discovery. The Resonance Science Foundation team invites you to explore and engage with us as a whole new phase of our growth and service in the world begins with a new website at a new domain:

resonancescience.org

“The name of the Foundation comes from our fundamental concept of resonance, a physics term in which energy (in the form of waves or vibrations) both reflects from and causes other objects to take on the same energy. For example, if you hit a large gong, other similarly resonant objects will also pick up that energy and start to ring. Similarly, if we resonate in our beliefs together, we will each share and grow that energy. And taking the concept even deeper, unified science shows that the concept of resonance is intertwined throughout our entire universe, and that these interconnections can be harnessed to uplift humanity, our planet and our universe.”

 

 

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 VERB

seemtobeaverb45

“I live on Earth at present, and I don’t know what I am. I know that I am not a category. I am not a thing — a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process – an integral function of the universe.” – R. Buckminster Fuller – I Seem to Be a Verb

 

I’ve been a R. Buckminster Fuller fan since college. One of my art professors was a huge “Bucky” fan and brought the entire spectrum of Fuller’s genius to our budding awareness.

In class we made mock-up, walk-in domes and read many of his books.  I Seem to Be a Verb was even required reading for our Art Aesthetics class. It was my first realization of Fuller’s intellectual scope and cultural affectation at the height of his career fame.fulleranddome55

After all these years, and long after his death in 1983, I’m still a fan.  He is one of my all-time heroes for many reasons.

 

Another great quote, was the “trim-tab” comment:

Something hit me very hard once, thinking about what one little man could do. Think of the Queen Mary — the whole ship goes by and then comes the rudder. And there’s a tiny thing at the edge of the rudder called a trimtab. boat

It’s a miniature rudder. Just moving the little trim tab builds a low pressure that pulls the rudder around. Takes almost no effort at all. So I said that the little individual can be a trimtab. Society thinks it’s going right by you, that it’s left you altogether. But if you’re doing dynamic things mentally, the fact is that you can just put your foot out like that and the whole big ship of state is going to go.

So I said, call me Trimtab.”

In fact, there are so many excellent Bucky Fuller quotes, I’ll just list a few for this post.

“You cannot change how someone thinks, but you can give them a tool to use which will lead them to think differently.”   Buckminster Fullerdont changebyfighting it34.png

 

“You do not belong to you. You belong to the universe. The significance of you will remain forever obscure to you, but you may assume you are fulfilling your significance if you apply yourself to converting all you experience to highest advantage to others. Make the world work, for 100% of humanity, in the shortest possible time, through spontaneous cooperation, without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone.”   Buckminster Fuller

fullerbanner554

“We are not going to be able to operate our Spaceship Earth successfully nor for much longer unless we see it as a whole spaceship and our fate as common. It has to be everybody or nobody.   Buckminster Fuller

“Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren’t any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn’t be here in the first place. buckytombstone trimtab.jpgAnd never forget, no matter how overwhelming life’s challenges and problems seem to be, that one person can make a difference in the world. In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matter in the world come about. So be that one person.”   Buckminster Fuller

 

“Quite clearly, our task is predominantly metaphysical, for it is how to get all of humanity to educate itself swiftly enough to generate spontaneous social behaviors that will avoid extinction.”  Buckminster Fuller

“We are now synergetically forcedcomprehensive-design-science-55-728.jpg to conclude that all phenomena are metaphysical; wherefore, as many have long suspected — like it or not — “life is but a dream.”    Buckminster Fuller

 

And if you are really into a challenge, read Fuller’s two tomes on Synergetics: Explorations in the Geometry of Thinking (Vol. 1 & 2).

His overall theory is that LIFE is proven to be well-designed. but by whom and for whom, he doesn’t say.

 

The Act of Living

Living is a process:  Every day a new creation—every moment a choice.

I once thought I could help guide others to find their true purpose in life.  Not that I whatlifepurpose67.jpgwould tell them what that purpose was, only that I could help them to determine that purpose for themselves.

I no longer think that way.

Life, in all its eccentricities and peculiarities, is to be unfettered to some degree— solely sampled by the one living it.

True, there have been others, particularly the words of others found in legacy-holders called “books” that have helped me better understand my sensings on LIFE—my perception of LIFE as it affects me and I in turn, affect it.

But it is only the accumulation of years and personal experiences that have truly helped me understand LIFE not as the interactive environment that I occupy for my brief moment in time, but that LIFE is this enormous vat of fermenting fruit we all add to and drink from.

elenorrooseveltpurposelife.jpgLIFE is our intoxicant. It is our hallucinogen. It is our sustenance that sustains, inspires, and fulfills us during our stay in this plane of existence.

We don’t just imbibe LIFE—we are immersed in it.  We absorb it through every pore, and spew it from us in every way and in every direction.

LIFE oozes from our very essence here. We even generate LIFE.

LIFE is US, and WE are LIFE.  But we are merely a fractional part of the process called “LIFE”.

So when others tell me that they “are tired of living,” I look at them not with sadness or judgment of any kind.

I simply ask them “Tired of living WHAT?—What is it you are living?—What role are you playing that makes you so tired?”  Because LIFE is a process—and it will continue long after we are dust because it started long before any of us arrived.

For those who do tire, I comprehend that we sometimes feel weariness with the process called LIFE.

I can easily understand the exhaustion of continual pain.

As I can also understand severe disappointment or dashed hopes or the momentary inability to perceive a better future lying ahead, because these are feelings that we all have had at some point during our own process of living.

But LIFE itself is not the problem. The problem is in how we sample LIFE.

twain everyday beautiful33.jpg

So were I to give any advice to “the tired of living” it would be minimal, and it would include a suggestion for sampling LIFE in a different way—making a personal change—shifting a perspective—seeing what you haven’t before seen so that you realize you are not the holder of LIFE.

You only share in LIFE for the time that you are here, because LIFE is a continuing process.

Just as you are.

 

The Pretend Life

Lately there has been a running theme from a variety of info sources that I follow, on the importance of our being able to shift our skewed life perspectives and to welcome positive changes into our lives.positivechangeheats.jpg

During this tumultuous time for our nation and the world, not to mention in our own personal lives, I think it is important to consider what these folks are really saying about how we tend to view events occurring around us, what responsibility we all bear for allowing those events to transpire, and even more importantly, how we can shift our perspectives on any event to not allow it to emotionally affect us.

The only thing we do control in many situations is how we REACT, including how we REACT to difficult personal interactions or how we REACT to group decisions to which we personally disagree.

I will be the first one to say that NOT reacting is hard—at times VERY HARD.  But I also know that powerlessworeact.jpgwhen you can be triggered to lose your cool over any issue, either large or small, you have just given away two key personal-power stances: One, is that you’ve allowed another person or situation to pull you out of your higher-frequency energy posture and down into lower-frequency fear/anger-based thinking; and two, once your triggered reaction is achieved and you are about to explode back at them with an angry retort, you have just shown the other person or group that you are easily manipulated to their bidding simply because you can’t control your own thinking and emotions.

Dr. Joe is taking it a little further here. He is saying that the more you let your reactive emotions control you, the more you tend to believe that outside forces control your life. When this pattern of reactivity to external forces keeps reinforcing itself in your mind and bio-chemically within your physical body, it creates patterns of behavior and reactivity to every aspect of your life.

The more you condition yourself to respond to life in a certain manner, the more you reinforce that personal view where you see yourself as a ‘victim of circumstances IN-Life-is-ten-percent-what-happens-to-you-and-ninety-percent-how-you-respond-to-it..jpgbeyond your control,’ rather than the more accurate view of your having a choice and say in every decision you make that affects your life even if the most important choice is one of NOT REACTING to a stressor or an emotional trigger.

He takes it one step beyond by saying that our present perspective on life is based on past reactivity to any situation, that makes it ‘past-situation tainted’ and also means that perspective is likely untrue to the actual affecting influences of the present so that we cling to a view of our present lives that isn’t even accurate:   “The latest research on memory says that 50% of what we talk about in our past isn’t even the truth. So, we make stuff up about the past. People are reliving a life that they didn’t even have just to reaffirm that they can’t change

For all of us, there are events constantly occurring to us and around us. But what matters most to our personal wellbeing and mental health is how we see ourselves in truthful relation to those events, and our willingness to CHANGE personal behaviors that may skew our existing life perspectives.

Dr Joe Dispenza – OFFICIAL NEWS & FAN PAGE

The stronger the emotion you feel from some event drjoedis456in your life, be it a betrayal, or a trauma.  The more altered you feel inside of you, the more you pay attention to the cause outside of you. The brain takes a snapshot. It freezes an image and embosses that pattern neurologically in the brain. That’s called a memory. We create long term memories from strong emotional events. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Some people have stronger experiences in their life, and it catches all of the brain’s attention. So now they think neurologically within the circuits of the past experience, and they feel chemically within the boundaries of those emotions.
⁣⁣
⁣⁣
How you think and how you feel creates a state of being. The problem is that if you don’t know how to mediate or control your emotional reaction to that event, and you keep that refractory period of chemicals going on for standard periods of time that event produces a chemical change, and the body needs to return back to homeostasis or balance. But if it can’t, then the elongation of that emotional reaction for days or weeks is called the mood. You keep firing and wiring the same circuits, and you keep conditioning the body into the past.
⁣⁣
⁣⁣
So then you wake up in the morning and you look for the emotion. Now, all of a sudden you keep it lingering for weeks or months. That’s called the temperament. You keep it going on for years on end. That’s called the personality trait.
⁣⁣
⁣⁣
So then a person then is memorizing themselves by living in the past. And then you say to them, ‘well, tell me the story.’
⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The latest research on memory says that 50% of what we talk about in our past isn’t even the truth. So, we make stuff up about the past. People are reliving a life that they didn’t even have just to reaffirm that they can’t change
