The Reality Distortion Field

What is the reality distortion field?

I heard the term repeated this morning in relation to the Chaos-maker in Chief, so I checked the online definition against what I youngstevejobs333.jpgthought that it meant, and saw it primarily referred to Steve Jobs (Apple computer fame) ability to create a fantasy so real that others bought into it and helped bring it into reality.

How Jobs did this was through positive visualization, high-energy promotion through marketing savvy, and flat-out lying.

I think the last attribute best applies to our current chaotic situation, BUT…while I was contemplating how each of us tends to “create our own reality” and “see things the way we want to see them” I ran across some contributing thoughts from others on the subject.

Some of these thoughts might more directly apply to my consideration of creating a reality distortion field—‘seeing reality as you wish to see it while convincing others to do the same,’ and other thoughts mentioned are in reference to consciousness in general and how we tend to only focus on those aspects that we choose to be our focus to create the reality that we presently live in.

“To become familiar with your unconscious states drjoepersonalrealityof mind and body takes an act of will, intention, and heighten awareness. If you become more aware, you become more attentive. If you become more attentive, you become more conscious. If you grow to be more conscious, you will notice more. If you notice more, you have a greater ability to observe self and others, both inner and outer elements of your reality. Ultimately, the more you observe, the more you awaken from the states of the unconscious mind into conscious awareness. ⁣

The purpose of becoming self-aware is so that you no longer allow any thought, action, or emotion you don’t want to experience to pass by your awareness. Thus, in time, your ability to consciously inhibit those states of being will stop firing and wiring of the old neural networks that are related to the old personality. And as a result of no longer re-creating the same mind on a daily basis, you prune away the hardware that is related to the old self. In addition, by interrupting the feelings that are associated with those thoughts, you are no longer signaling genes in the same way. You are stopping the body from reaffirming itself as the same mind. This process is whereby you quite simply begin to ‘lose your mind.’ ⁣
As you develop the skill of becoming familiar with all aspects of your old self, you will ultimately become more conscious. Your goal here is to unlearn who you used to be, so that you can free up energy to create a new life, new personality. You can’t create a new personal reality as the same personality. You have to become someone else. Awareness is your first task in moving from your past to creating a new future.”

Process or Product?

Which are we: Process or Product?

I was watching a video of a robotic arm spewing toothpaste-consistency clay from its endpoint nozzle onto a non-revolving turn-table. (Similar to a 3-D printer circling a center point.)

As the robotic arm repeatedly circled the table, revolution by revolution, the clay emitted in the process slowly began to form a tube circle, then build circle upon successive circle until it became vessel-like in appearance.clayextrusionunifornm

After the clay tubing grew to about a foot tall, the engineers must have gotten programming-creative and began to do odd loops and tweaks in the circling process until the vase formed some loopy design anomalies that were pretty interesting.  This was the artistic part of the robotic forming process—artistry through coded engineering.

The end product in this clay extrusion process was the completed vase that was actually quite interesting and ingenious in its own right, but at roboarmclay34.jpgthe same time left me a little unenthusiastic about creating art objects in this manner because it took the potter’s hands out of the process (and I really enjoyed hand-thrown pottery class).

Artificial and engineered-robotic intelligence can create amazing objects, and yes, a programmer had to input the initial coding to make it all happen—that is true. But watching this clay vessel being formed which was meant more for aesthetic appreciation rather than function—created without a human’s personal touch—felt not only impersonal to me; it felt pointless in some ways.claystrudergit42.JPG

Robotic or engineered processes are meant for duplication ease and consistency in creating multiples of a product or the components of that product. That is why it was introduced into industrial settings—to eliminate the human factor and all the financial/actuarial detritus because of that.

But when it comes to considering the ART value of the robotic-product that is created, is it a human-generated, unique artifact reflective of the culture that created it or a mass-produced lump of hardened clay devoid of aspirational intentions other than to make more money? Maybe that is best determined by the ‘creator’ of the product.

So then I thought about the old, Isaac Asimov short-story called “The Last Question” where all of life has long ago passed away leaving only an omniscient AI computer that recreates the basis for restarting the entire LIFE process again with the simple statement to itself of “Let there be light!”

This leads me to another thought that perhaps we are not so much a product of life as we are more of a continuing life process, along with the popular mythology image playing in my mind of God creating the first human from a lump of clay and breathing LIFE into it. Did S/He do it through a clay-extrusion tube?

adamcreatemichaelangelo356.jpg

For us as humans, our life process is imperfect and constantly changing, but we are still yearning for our own, as well as our species, continuation on this planet.

But to follow up on that thought, if we are instead life products, then there are billions of us on this earth doing what we do in our own good interests and bad. And we are fast filling up our earth’s warehouse with human vessels—some of which are more functional than others.

However, if we are life processes and all billions of us are in motion toward change of some sort—then we represent LIFE itself in process as an evolution of intentions and cause/effect actions taken toward both short-term goals and long-term results, personally and as a collective consciousness.

The true intention of our origins is a puzzle we haven’t yet solved, even though we frequently speculate on origin possibilities.

For the most part, I know we tend to think of ourselves as the creator and determiner of our own fates and ai circuits56.jpgdestinies, but are we really in charge of our lives here or are we just mass-produced products of some AI-designed extrusion process that “peoples” this particular planet for some enigmatic reason?

I don’t really know which we are, but if we are created by an omniscient AI, perhaps it is time for a program change to a smarter, less self-destructive vessel.

Just a suggestion.

 

Elevation

leeharrisenergy765.jpg

“Higher harmonics, elevated love, and abundance shifts.” That is the Lee Harris energy message for February. (If you want to hear it: https://www.leeharrisenergy.com/february-2019-energy-update )

Here’s a short paraphrase of the content: He claims greater quantities of light are pouring into the earthplane now—higher frequencies of light saturating us and every experience that we all share.  When we as individuals can match these higher frequencies penetrating all aspects of our life, we will feel more aligned to lovefrequency34.jpgour life’s purpose, more naturally in the flow of all that transpires to us and around us, and will notice more positive transformation magically occurring in our life on a more permanent basis.

He said this last seven years has been a resolution time for old planetary karma, and now many new people being born at this time are not coming into this life burdened with old ancestral karma because much of it has been resolved and shed.

This is a time for new beginnings, new awakenings, and new intentions for a better life for all.

Sounds great, eh?  What’s the catch?

Well, you have to be willing to let go of your old non-productive habits, relationships, and modes of thinking to allow the higher frequencies to shift your life for the better.

Hmmm.  Being creatures of ingrained habit and all, how likely is it that we can do this?  That’s a very good question.

What I’ve personally noticed is that lately I seem to be changing—how I look at people, situations, and relationships has changed from even a year or so ago. I just SEE things differently now—I just FEEL differently about being around people in general or participating in the emotional roller coaster of hearing someone else’s life-drama replayed on the phone.  If you call me and that’s what you want to talk about—all your trials and tribulations, quite honestly…I just don’t want to hear it.

Is that selfish of me?  Maybe.  Or maybe it’s more real than I’ve ever been in my life.  Maybe I am seeing with greater clarity now knowing that I can’t really solve anyone else’s dilemma other than my own. Their drama is THEIR drama—please don’t try to make it mine.

williamsonshiftinperceptionsIf they called, I would only suggest that they shift their perceptions of the situation to better see what they are not presently seeing; and I doubt that would go over well anyway, so why bother with my listening to all of it?

Even worse than this isolationist’s attitude I now seem to exhibit, I also notice feeling irritation seeing someone on Facebook lecture others on how to live their lives or interpreting for them what some incident means in the greater scope of things. Have I done that same thing myself at earlier times?  Very likely I have …but I can’t do it now.  I can’t even stand to see others do it.  One of our greatest misperceptions as adult humans is that we think we know more than we actually do.  And we are darn proud of that acquired ignorance because we’ve invested all these years cultivating it. I mean, age has to count for something besides grey hair and wrinkles, doesn’t it?  Exactly!

And if anyone out there has ALL the answers to every person’s life questions, please step forward because I don’t think that you DO exist.  I think that YOU think you exist for whatever reason your ego tells you is valid. But I think people have to figure these things out for themselves, and THAT is the main reason that they are here in this incarnation, so the less that I interfere with them, the better they are and the farther they go toward figuring out their own situations.  That is my present opinion of personal interactions and relationships.  In other words, if you want to talk to me, don’t whine about your life!vibratehighfreq87.jpg

So do I agree with Lee Harris that the energies are shifting higher and everyone is changing? In a sense, yes.  And he also said in the video that change doesn’t come easily or without some blowback or fallout in our lives. And to that I would also agree.

Is it going to be all ‘hearts and flowers’ with these new, higher-frequency energies?

Only if the greater light that brings increased clarity to all aspects of our life means that we can truly become the higher beings we were once put here to be: with no more pronounced victimhood, no more resentments, no more jealousies and fear of others.

Can we elevate ourselves to be better people for each other and to be better, more conscientious residents of the Earth?

I truly hope that we can. And it may be that very HOPE that leads to our elevation.

Synchronous Sources

Not a surprise that much of my blog-material inspiration comes from information sources that I follow on Facebook.  I do recognize that Facebook represents different things to different people, but to me I like the thought-provoking and more inspirational stuff that I follow on there, along with the beautiful images.

Also not a surprise is that sometimes with the many sources that I do follow, they seem to line up down the scrolling page in an uncanny, synchronous fashion to make a case for or to substantiate my opinions on many aspects of what we refer to as this life or this reality experience that we share.

So this morning by the third posting, I recognized the pattern of information being explored, and simply took note of it here. This is how it presented itself in this exact order on my homepage:

On Being Positive

If folks think that maintaining a positive attitude in today’s world comes easily, I can posemotibunch.jpgassure them that it isn’t.

When we are enveloped in such blatant cruelty to other human beings—strafed daily with offensive, verbal assaults on our person and our differing ideas—staying positive through all of THAT is quite a trick.

Every morning we have to armor up and set our defense shields to “DEFLECT” just tosupersademotri.png make it through the day. That’s a little sad, don’t you think? (Insert SAD- face emoji here for emphasis.)

Yesterday I watched a lovely, gentle person I know try to defend her immigration/child separation Facebook posts against cruel, heartless comments that countered her message.  I offered my simple “HEART-LIKE” (insert HEART emoji here) to her just to let her know that I stand hearteoti9with her, if only from a distance; but at the same time I know that when we engage on social media with people who strongly disagree with us and disagree with who we are as loving individuals, then they are NOT really our friends, even though they might be on our FRIENDS list.

And if we can’t handle their unkind comments, then we must either remove them as our FRIENDS or stay off the PUBLIC airwaves—it’s that simple.  But then it isn’t really simple, is it?  In fact, it’s a large, complex issue that isn’t going away anytime soon.

Unfortunately the level of venom in today’s public discussion has reached such fever ick emoti8.pngpitch that it’s like watching a foot-long hotdog being torn apart by two ravenous dogs. Something’s gonna give there—and within seconds that once-whole hotdog will never be seen again—at least in the same form that it previously was. (Insert “ICK!” emoji here.)

How can we be positive about the present state of our declining human condition?

A couple days ago I heard someone on a news show discussing what was happening to our sense of civility in general; and this person said something that I agree with: We are in an unmasking period in human interaction where the “shadow-side” of human nature is dislikeemoti84.jpgrising to the surface for all to view and assess.  No more pretending to “tolerate” others. (Never did like that word “tolerate”)

I agree.  Clearly we don’t tolerate dissension now. We don’t tolerate views that differ from our own. We don’t tolerate people who do not look like us or act like us, or talk like us. We don’t rise above our prejudices or biases—we embrace them, right? We remove the mask and say “Hey those of YOU who do not look or think, or act like me, … I hate you! And I’m proud of hating you!  So there!  Deal with it!”

As we now look closely at that unmasking of our deepest and darkest human natures, we say, “Yes, bigotry and prejudice, and racism, and homophobia, and xenophobia, etc….YES, …these all exist in our present world society and in each of us to some degree; and we are not as culturally and consciously advanced as the civilized people that we once believed our nation and the people who compose it, were thought to be.  We are barbarians still—pure and simple—we are still immersed in our primal fears of scarcity and fears of personal annihilation, and we are incapable of rising above those fears!”

We fear “otherness” in general, and in today’s permissive environment we act out those fears in the most putrefying and nauseating ways imaginable.horrifying emoti5

And that’s not just emoji “SAD-face” folks—that is emoji horrifying!    (Insert that nasty thing here.)

 

But yet, ….the POSITIVE from this great unmasking is that people can no longer hide behind who they once pretended to be—because they have been unmasked–unmasked by themselves in all their acrimonious glory–they have all exposed themselves for their true feelings on just about every imaginable subject—whether you wanted to know them or not.

“Grasping the ‘Process of Becoming’”

This morning I was listening to my favorite layperson’s astrologer, Kaypacha Lescher, on kaypachalescher5.jpgthis week’s energy influences affecting us (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKSKz3d03eI&feature=share ) and he said a few things that resonated with me that I wanted to pass along to anyone else who might be interested.

We, as all our ancestors before us have done,  are trudging the path of evolution; and no matter how essential it is that we all do this, it’s not an easy trek, especially in these latest energies flooding our lives at present.

During that somewhat difficult evolutionary life-journey, he said we must realize that taking life’s final bow while expelling one last breath isn’t the major achievement of a life well lived: “It’s not about reaching processofbecquote.pngthe goal, but grasping the “process of becoming” (that matters), so we can share, teach, and make it happen for us all together.”

I considered that statement: “Grasping the ‘process of becoming’.”   What does that really mean?

He elaborated on the importance of being here NOW: That this moment is where we presently are—being stretched thin between who we were in our past and who we will become in our future.  And the only place you can make any course adjustments for your journey, is in the NOW.

NOW—this moment—this time period, affects your path forward in every possible way.

NOW can make a course correction in your life by taking that first simple step in a completely different direction.

anisninquoteproofbec“In fact,” as Kaypacha further explained, “The key point between the sameness of your past and an entirely different future is your NOW.”

Meaning that if you aren’t happy about where your life presently is or what baggage your past actions have accumulated and you want to find deeper meaning to your life—to your reason(s) for being here, then do so right NOW because this moment is the gateway to the person you are next becoming.

The “becoming” itself is the most important part of the entire consideration here because it implies you/we are mid soul-state change. We are “evolving” into something other than what we presently are.

Evolution is one of those words we think only applies to Darwinian beasties who farwin quote6.jpglaboriously crawled from the ocean on leg-like fins, or swung from the trees supported by long tails that no longer exist.

But evolution simply means a process of changing from one mode of operation to another that is more productive and likely more survival-oriented for the species.

Personal evolution can also be both more productive and survival focused, but it can also apply to living a life that is more meaningful to us.

It is important for us to fully realize that we, as individuals and as a self-aware species, are “in the process of becoming”—but that we aren’t already there.  Legs on that fish didn’t appear mid-crawl, nor did chimps walk upright after a revelatory dream in the night.

We need to give ourselves the space and time to spiritually/mentally/emotionally evolve probecbutteryfly.jpgand recognize that the person we are right now will likely not be the same person that we are soon going to be.

Our forward movement just depends on that conscious choice to maximize this very moment by stepping boldly in the direction we NOW wish to travel.

Grasp the evolutionary process itself, but more importantly, grasp the opportunity to make course corrections in the NOW that you are being provided.

Rather than wasting time in regret of your unpleasant past or speculation on a too-distant future, use NOW as the forward action toward your dreams.

You are “becoming” whomever it is that you wish to be.

Metacognition with Dr. Dispenza on Ted Talk

Joe tedtalk.jpgThis morning I saw Dr. Joe Dispenza’s Ted Talk presentation on neuroplasticity and rewiring our brains (cortical remapping) to change our behaviors. I think it was called “Thinking to Doing to Being.” (The location is: https://www.facebook.com/DrJoeDispenzaOfficialNewsFanPage/videos/2122965437728839/  )

Because I have previously commented on this aspect of “Whatever you think, IS—so change your thinking to reflect what you want” I’ll include the link if anyone wants to see it, and I’ll make a few more comments per Dr. Dispenza’s TT advice.

He began by explaining the functions of the 3 main parts of the brain: the neocortex3 parts of brain.jpg (the thinking brain), the limbic (mammalian/emotions/feeling) brain, and the cerebellum (the subconscious/reptilian) brain.  When all parts are functioning optimally and are in coordination with each other, we are in optimal mental health and can direct the course of our lives as we wish.

However, when what we think and what we feel are out of line with each other—like when a disturbing memory association and corresponding body reaction because of it counters our intentions to better control our present-day actions, then we feel we have no control over our lives—we automatically react to everything around us. We become stressed, we lose our temper, we act fearful for no visible reason, etc., and then we tend to blame others for our inability to control ourselves.

brain neuropla.jpgBut humans have an amazing ability to actually observe our thinking/acting processes. It is called metacognition—we can become consciously aware of ourselves and our reactions to life through observation—by pulling back to watch how our mind and our body are trying to take us in a direction we really don’t want to go, and then tracing the behavior back to the trigger point that created the reaction.  When we go into observation mode we can simply watch ourselves being WHO we are being—watch how we are reacting to the stimuli before us—even observe our thoughts at the moment to see what we are automatically thinking when a trigger subject arises. It is self-observation and reassessment before automatic reaction.

The importance of this is that in the ability to simply observe ourselves through metacognition, we then have the opportunity to change our previously-patterned behavior.

Dr. Dispenza went into depth on when you maintain the observer of how you are reacting stance rather than automatically react, you change the neuron-firing patterns of your brain’s neocortex enough so that you actually disrupt the limbic brain’s emotion-charged, chemical reactions to the same subject matter. By doing this you are diffusing the chemical effect that it would normally have on your endocrine system which controls the specific chemicals released into your blood stream like the hormone cortisol from the adrenal glands that triggers our natural fight-or-flight response.create your future.jpg

Auto-reactions are carefully created neuropathways in the brain established by patterns of reaction and behavior. “Circuits that fire together, wire together,” he says. “So change your thinking, and you can change your body’s reaction to your environment.”

When you can shift to observer/non-reactive mode and choose how you wish to respond to a situation, you begin to biologically breakdown the old circuits earlier created in your brain that were connected to your old way of reacting to life stressors.  This makes your brain neurons start firing in new sequences and new patterns so that what once might have sparked a stress reactor in you, now is recognized as a trigger that you no longer will allow to affect you in the same way. You’ve taken control of how you think about the situation.

I’ll paraphrase him a bit here: “Nerve cells that fire together—wire together. Think new thoughts and you change your brain’s wiring patterns. This is how you change patterns of behavior—you start by thinking new thoughts and recognizing automatic stress triggers that previously might have adversely affected your body. By thinking about the situation in a less-reactive way—less emotional attachment to the situation, you can establish a new pattern of thought and a new pattern of behavior.”

“Knowledge is for the mind, but experience is for the body.  When you change a pattern of thought over time, you change the pattern of your body’s reaction to those thoughts.  The mind is primarily the neocortex of the brain, where as the emotions and body reactions are feelwhatyouthink.jpggoverned by the limbic (mammalian) brain which sends out the signals for the endocrine’s reaction and corresponding chemical release into the bloodstream to provide the body with additional reaction abilities. To change your body’s behavior, you neuro-chemically condition the body to accept the new behavior or new reaction.  With repetition, new circuits are created and the brain creates new pathways for more calmly dealing with a once-stressful situation.”

The third brain, the cerebellum or the reptilian brain, is the automatic reaction for protection and preservation of the body.  When you establish solid connections between the neocortex and the limbic brains, and develop new patterns of established behavior and reactability, then the cerebellum (the seat of your subconscious mind) can adopt it as the natural reactive pattern—it becomes the new habit, the new second-nature, the new go-to skill.  This becomes innate—it becomes your new way of being.”

“The way we transform the world, is to transform ourselves.”joe destiny

And there you have it.

I liked the last statement best, paraphrased as: “If you want a more compassionate world, then train yourself to react with compassion rather than anger to a situation not of your liking.”

He’s worth hearing.
