This is what knowledge looks like. Alluring, tempting, deadly. 

" The shamanic path is the path of the heart and the soul. It is a path of beauty, wholeness, sacred living, oneness and connectedness with all things and nothings, awareness, mindfulness, respect, honor and gratitude. It’s a path of extraordinary moments when nature and Spirit speak more clearly than the racket of our mental chatter and we stop everything and take notice, listening and feeling the message. It is a path where central focus of life is creating balance, harmony, impeccability, and wholeness. It is a path that requires integrity and honesty - with one’s self and others. The shamanic path is loving, healing path that invites all, yet it is also a truth - revealing path, turning away initiates not yet ready to face the awesome truth of reality. "

Are you ready ? I was born ready. Many lives ago.

" The world is changing.

Environmentally, we are seeing increases in the frequency and magnitude of storms ; earthquakes are prevalent and devastating worldwide ; the ice caps are melting, ocean levels are rising, and more arable land each year either disappears or becomes barren.

Sociologically and culturally, we are seeing an increase in extremes and a shrinking of the middle. Wealth is concentrating in the hands of the very few, and poverty is increasing among the masses. We are experiencing a social divide in opportunity, which further stratifies the division between the haves and have-nots.

Technologically, we have automated ourselves to the point where very few know how to manufacture or produce the vast majority of what we consume. It is significant that we have a new generation of computer technology every three months, while most of us would be stymied should we be required to manufacture a paper clip from raw materials. We don’t understand our own technology.

We have also become a species who hast lost its inclination for self - determination. We allow ourselves to be told how to act, what to do, what to want, and even who, what, and how to love. The mainstream religious practices are FUNDAMENTALLY exclusive, rather than inclusive - that is, they posit an idea that if you do not believe as they do, your soul will be denied reward of any kind, because theirs is the only way.

In essence we are tribal species who have just enough out - of - control technology and little enough wisdom so that we are capable of doing some real damage.

And we are.  ” 

Original text by Coleen Deatsman, an intro from “Seeing In The Dark 

One cannot choose what to accept and what to ignore. It’s either acceptance or ignorance. So be careful of all the flowers and butterflies you’re enthralling yourselves with, for there are many, if not too many poisonous species out there. Honesty 1st. Reality is Totality. All included. Just like a wave, all the highs, all the lows, all the turbulence, and all the serenity …

Limits of human perspectives ? Imagination included ? Let’s got further, beyond, far out, gate gate pāragate pārasaṃgate bodhi svāhā, hahaha !!!

" Although relaxation and recreation are important parts of a balanced life, they are different activities and have different effects on meditation. Meditation seeks increased awareness, and that awareness brings intuitive wisdom and liberation from habitual reactions. Similarly, meditation is not the same as positive thinking, or going into an altered state of mind. It can instead be thought of as the practice of purposefully paying attention to thoughts. Rather than a technique for escaping reality, it is a practice of being available for reality and staying present for whatever is current. Meditation is not a way of avoiding responsibilities, duties, and agreements. It is a practice that leads to responding to our life with resiliency and accountability. “

Edward Viljoen, “The Power Of Meditation”

I just love these contemporary, fresh blends suited for the western mindset caught in shifting tides of awakening consciousness. We are who we are, we wear skins that we wear, and the road to the Universal Unity must go through merging with one’s local spiritual flora and fauna … Trans this and trans that, same old story ! So, with all due respect to all the Ancient Truths and the doctrines that popped out of the same, and the only Source, I’d stick to what’s natural for my own path, and steal the best from all worlds … Peace on, share, serve and plunder !

What You Reap, Is What You Sow

" All mistakes as to the laws of life are bad sowing which yields bad reaping. Bad sowings are, above all, expressions of hatred and egoism. Not only our manifest violations of the rights of others are included here, the visible suffering we inflict on others. But also what we, in our ignorance, believe does not hurt anybody. All gossip, all moralism, all curiosity of the private lives of others belong there. We hurt with our thoughts and feelings, not only if they are directly hateful and malevolent, but also if we in an unkindly manner attend to other people’s faults, failings, defects, personal problems. “Energy follows thought” is a "source axiom" . Everything that consciousness observes is affected. And the energy involved reaches its defenseless target.


Abuse of power is a serious mistake as to the law of freedom and the law of unity. The law of reaping regulates this, too. The consequence is that you will be the victim of the humiliation and injustice of impotence. And you will lose the possibility of wielding power for a very long time. Knowledge is power, too. Abuse of knowledge results in the loss of knowledge. If in this life you have received knowledge that has afforded a sovereign explanation of the riddle of life so that you may rest from your seeking, then you have a duty to spread the knowledge to others in a similar situation. Otherwise the knowledge will be lost to you in future lives. That does not necessarily mean that you will never get into contact with the knowledge in your next life. It may so happen that you with your new brain do not comprehend the knowledge you nevertheless receive and think to be correct.


To speak and act against your better judgement, to side with the majority when you see that it is in the wrong, to be silent when you should speak out, is all very common in the age of mass man. The knowledge that this is wrong makes the bad sowing much worse. Suicide is a serious mistake. It extends its effects over several incarnations, does not solve any problems (that must be solved), only complicates them. The worst possible sowing is to inflict suffering on other beings, to avenge oneself, to play the part of punishing providence. Those who do evil that good may come thereof expect good reaping from bad sowing. The suffering we have inflicted on others is returned to us regardless of our motives.


Bad reaping is most things in life and everything that cannot be regarded as happiness ; everything that harms us and displeases us and thus not just obvious misfortunes and sufferings. The law of reaping works individually, with extraordinary adaptation to everybody’s individual character and conditions. It takes the law of unity and the law of freedom into particular consideration. It works in everything and utilizes all opportunities to make it possible for us to pay off from the debt account. The higher the level a man reaches, the more the law considers the possibilities of modifying the effects of the law, dividing them over time, allowing him to make good in other ways. However, all sowing must be reaped.


You are born into the race, nation, and family that you deserve. You have the schoolfellows, teachers, later on work, colleagues and chiefs that you shall have according to the law of reaping. The same is true of your life partner and friends. If these influences work so as to lower your level, then they are the outcomes of bad reaping; in the opposite case, of good reaping. All kinds of sufferings, defects, sorrows, disappointments, adversities, hindrances, losses and so on ad infinitum are bad reaping as are lacking possibilities of acquiring knowledge and understanding, qualities and abilities.


Good sowing is to apply the laws of life without friction. Man becomes the lord of nature by applying the laws of nature. By obeying the laws of life he will become the lord of life. Good sowing is to cultivate the will to unity, to work to acquire noble emotions and qualities, to gain knowledge and understanding, to strive after self-realization. Good sowing is to work to abolish social evils, to enhance understanding between people, to spread knowledge of the laws of life, to lessen suffering in the world, to defend freedom and right and the just cause of the weaker man. Good sowing is to bring children up in love, to bear your suffering heroically, to be indifferent to the hatred people direct at you and not hate them back, to counteract illusionism, lies, and hatred in the community.


Very good sowing and the quickest liberation from egoism and illusions is to do the right just for its own sake, without any thought of personal advantage or disadvantage, gratitude or good sowing, and to assist The Great Ones Who work for evolution instead of counteracting Them as most people do. Good sowing is to systematically cultivate the sense of joy and happiness and to think good of everyone as a matter of principle. In so doing you strengthen what is best in everyone and make life easier to live for everybody.


It is a proof of our ignorance of the laws of life that we do not comprehend that the advantages that life affords us are good reaping. We think they are our natural rights. Then we accuse life when losing them. It is bad sowing not to use the good reaping according to the laws of life. To be born into a civilized nation, into a family where people understand you, to be brought up with love and have friends who ennoble you, to have opportunities of gaining knowledge and of acquiring good qualities, all these things are examples of good reaping to which we have won the right by sowing a good sowing in previous lives.


Good reaping is health, beauty, intelligence, talents, understanding, good friends, helpers, success: everything that life affords us without our efforts. The best possible reapings are opportunities of rapid development through experiences that awaken our higher abilities, intercourse with highly developed people, for instance. One hour of rational talk with a child can change his entire life. Without good reaping we will never find happiness, however much we pursue it. We are happy in so far as we have made others happy.


Power, glory, and wealth are good reaping only at higher stages. At lower stages, man in his ignorance and impotence can hardly avoid abusing these illusory advantages and thereby sow fresh bad sowing. “

Not mine, but just like my own heart would tell ;)

The noosphere is the planetary sphere of mind or thinking layer of planet Earth. To grasp the idea of the noosphere we must elevate our consciousness and open ourselves to the most general, elemental and cosmic principles of life on Earth.

As the mental sheathe of the planet, the noosphere characterizes mind and consciousness as a unitary phenomenon. This means that the quality and nature of our individual and collective thoughts directly effects the noosphere and creates the quality of our environment—the biosphere.

As the Earth’s “mental sheathe,” the noosphere represents the breakthrough to a new consciousness, a new time and a new reality arising from the biospheric crisis. This is known as the biosphere-noosphere transition.

Just as the biosphere is the unity of all of life and its support system, the noosphere is the unity of all mind and its thinking layers. In this way the noosphere can be understood as the sum of the mental interactions of all life. Within the noosphere exists the evolutionary control panels, known as the psi bank, the storage and retrieval system for all the mental programs.

As the next stage of evolution of the terrestrial biosphere, the noosphere signifies the advent of a qualitative/dimensional shift - the passage from one state to another. This is the main investigative topic of the Noosphere II project.

This perspective of the noosphere, as an evolutionary event, has been scientifically anticipated by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, the noted French paleontologist, as well as his colleague (with whom he jointly coined the word noosphere in 1926), Russian geochemist, Vladimir Vernadsky (see The Theory and History of the Noosphere).

The historic process is changing dramatically before our eyes … Mankind taken as a whole is becoming a powerful geological force. Humanity’s mind and work face the problem of reconstructing the biosphere in the interests of freely thinking mankind as a single entity. This new state of the world we are approaching without noticing it is the ‘Noosphere.’ “  

V.I. Vernadsky

The Internet is the third-dimensional reflection of the noosphere, a form of proto-telepathy. When the noosphere is fully activated, then the human species will experience telepathy as a collective norm.

“It’s only in western civilization that you get this steady focus on this monotheistic ideal, and working out the implications of what is essentially a pathological personality pattern. The pattern of the omniscient, omnipresent, all-knowing, wrathful male deity. No one you would invite to your garden party.”

Taking Digression Into Account. Nothing is for granted.

image

Souls can get lost in lower realms easily, more easily and more often than most of us will ever be able to admit and accept. Nothing comes for granted – eternity being out there is the fact, and it is waiting, it will wait for you – but you won’t be granted the entry until you make it even here and now, and learn what’s meant for you to learn in this mortal, evolutionary experience you’re entitled to live, enjoy, and suffer through.

Also, there IS such thing as the Ultimate Death Of Soul. It’s not death really, just irreversible unconscious depersonalization and merging with the infinite pool of divinity itself. Mostly happens when you are inert, self centered, lazy, ignorant, far from dharma ways … If the only thing you produce is nothing but human waste, it will become your very own destiny. It’s plain physics. Turning shit into a fertilizer, cosmos could waste no substance or energy …

So, careful with your intentions, thoughts, assumptions, youthful enthusiasm, and all the building blocks your own belief system is being founded on. It is no more than a house of cards. Taking ‘free spirit’ for granted might seem at times as ‘going on with the Flow’, but it isn’t. It’s a subtle, but instant change, from honest, detached, totally surrendered dispersion in the divine to falling into an ego pit trap. Contrary to popular belief about reincarnation as conformists and puritans tend to interpret it, the chance for mortal evolutionary conscious life capable of experiencing those brief sparks of enlightenment and go transpersonal, even transhuman, is not something given randomly, easily, and surely not for granted. Cause, effect, karma bills and paychecks. All patterns are intertwined. Anything influences everything. Never stop paying attention to who you are and what you do. Your very own soul might not survive the dire consequences you could cause to yourself without even noticing … 

Old Thoughts On Darkness, phenomenology of The Shift, and the Spirit of the Century.

Darkness is not something to be capitalized. It is just the absence of light, a delicate veil over my perception and reasoning, both on awaken and subconscious levels. That’s why I rarely recollect my dreams, unless my intuition chooses otherwise. She picks important messages. I don’t believe in daydreaming, or wishful thinking. I was always aware of profound and awakening effects my Darkness had on me during the years and years of pain and damage I caused to myself and the others. It is the hint of Death sitting on my left, and the Devil sitting on my right shoulder. Nourishing and nurturing the element of danger, always gambling with my soul, I always believed it was the only possible honest path to walk, subjectively speaking. The only way I ever knew of, the way I believe it must be for me to be able to process and integrate all the contemplative and experiential insights I had, have and yet to acquire from such common perspectives, even those that pushed me way too deep, living through all the blissful dirt of twisted and perverted, primal, total nature of ourselves being stirred and brought back to our awaken states due to our common addiction to laziness, ignorance, and luxury to give ourselves to the perfume soaked mud and sludge of our comfort zones. Fuck me if I’m wrong, but there is nothing to fear out there except the fear of fear itself, which is absurd. We try ever so hard to remain separated, to be not accepted but acknowledged as distinctive individuals, distinguishable and ‘unique’ for whatever the hell that might mean, spending our life in constant terror of losing the image of ourselves that we created for ourselves to suit our own circus of assumptions and projections, all together, yet all alone … So much effort, so much senseless, wasted effort … While all we’re doing and all we can do at all, is to surrender to the Flow. Catch the top of the wave and surf for all it’s worth, or drown, hitting the rock bottom, unable to fill your lungs to their full capacity with the fresh air of Life. Either you’re alive or you’re dead. There are no interstates.  

Darkness being mere absences of light, revealing the infinite realms of deeper, Core Self mirrored in Universal Consciousness, through the path of getting to know, accept, and learn from Natural Intelligence, accessible through our very own breath … Hyper threading, one step at the time. A gentle, not aggressive progression. Commune, not conquer. Universe holds and offers all the knowledge there is, all the knowledge we need, and infinite worlds of further and deeper knowledge beyond possibilities of human comprehension, processing and utilization. Our minds deviated, as species, as we let ourselves evolve externally, into the machine spirit, being arrogant enough to defile all the sacred and eternal concepts of Natural and Universal harmony, neglecting on daily and mundane level obvious presence and benevolence of our progenitors and caretakers, our heavenly Father and our earthly Mother. We left our home, while the home itself never left us. 

The Life, Universe and Everything do not either begin or end on the verges of human intellect, perception and awareness. 

The Shift is all about that. ACCEPTING the good faith that struck us all of a sudden out ‘from nowhere’, since we’re crippled in our ability to turn inward and recognize and liberate what has always been locked and loaded within our tormented hearts. Luckily, The Call Of The Age laughs on the repulsiveness and comfort fueled ignorance of an individual, separate mind, calling for a great congregation, pointing out the ridiculous obviousness of Ancient Truths, incarnated in our newly awakened, elevated common sense, and the realization of false premises, promises and irrational rationalizations such as the concepts of Mythology and psychologically explained Imagination, Altered States, and the nature of madness itself as a ‘deviating and pathogenic state of illness’ as defined formally. 

Ditching all the norms and all the forms, all the limits, all the boundaries, all assumptions, all projections, even the arrogant need for any kind of critical / rational comprehension. Once you zoom out and go abstract, toward pattern recognition instead of zooming in into isolation and analysis of the separate details, you get the gift of knowing without the need to understand. And that’s something I’ll never ditch away.   

“Surrender is to give oneself up to the original cause of one’s being. Do not delude yourself by imagining such a source to be some God outside you. One’s source is within oneself. Give yourself up to it. That means that you should seek the source and merge in it.”
— Ramana Maharshi (via panatmansam)
