The Light in the Darkness

November 25, 2014

The Light in the Darkness

(Excerpts)

It is startling how human beings rarely if ever achieve a lasting enlightenment. We may catch a glimpse of illumination, yet it is a fleeting epiphany that fades as the speeding luminosity of a falling star. It is lost and forgotten amidst the relentless shower of diversions our society provides. We allow the distractions to consume the quality and power of our lives. We surrender to our personalized confusion with our lack of interest in creating them. This is the ultimate darkness. Not one that waits for its perfect moment to influence, command, embezzle and seize our energy. It is one that we enable with our attitude, behavior, entitlement and emotional drama. We sustain our own darkness with the conditions and restrictions we apply to our lives. Our darkness is the measure of our human potential unattained and unexpressed.

Soul Persuasion:

We have been conditioned to live almost exclusively from our mind and body. We exist within a social paradigm commonly adopted as “reality,” primarily steeped in left-brain activity and interaction. Much as the fish that swims in water not seeing the limitations of its existence, we too are chained to the invisible boundaries of a manufactured lifestyle. This is one way we align ourselves with negative energy. We allow the darkness into our lives with our silence, selfishness, disinterest and the anesthetizing of our sensibilities. We become vulnerable to the chaotic, lower frequencies we tend to perceive as “evil.” These dark forces attempt to transmute our energetic signatures into a form easier to control, conquer and consume.

We witness the evidence of evil in society on a daily basis. It is reflected in human behavior with war, destruction, genocide, inequality and injustice. Darkness thrives in the malevolence of murder, rape, domestic violence, character assassination and the tradition of competition found primarily in politics, business and sports. These attributes of human existence run rampant around the globe. They bombard us with such frequency, impact and effect that we become desensitized to their horrors. Yet, evil is not the monster under the bed or the demon in the darkness. It is not an existential entity that preys upon our apathy, unconsciousness and fear. It is we who sacrifice our personal power by the quality of our thoughts, behaviors, actions and emotional and energetic expression. These traits expose us to negative energies that become hate, anger, vengeance, selfishness and cruelty. Eventually, we render ourselves susceptible to these dark influences and they become our nature. We become a conduit of darkness

Darkness is so clever; it uses our own effort, energy and life force against us to further its agenda. It exploits our ego as a channel to silently and constantly influence us toward choices and actions that go against our reason, free will, common sense and intuition. The more we are aware of our darkness and its impression upon us, the more we are able to utilize it instead of the contrary. After all, it is a powerful facet of our being. It is ever present, no matter how much we attempt to avoid or deny its existence. We can transform this expression of our being into a positive force that benefits our lives. It is simply our perceptual fear of the raw, unknown power of our darkness that intimidates, weakens and immobilizes us. We hand our power over to what may be, not what is. With every fearful breath we draw, our connection with darkness strengthens and the fulfillment of our destiny wanes.

We are incapable of sustaining a capacity of being-ness for enlightenment. Our lives are lived ever striving to become something that we can only be in spirit. Perhaps this is the great mystery of life. It has been said that the most powerful light is harvested from the greatest darkness. Within this darkness there is only one thing that awaits us, our fear with which we react to the unknown. Fear is the demon we all must face. When we do, what once looked like a monster suddenly becomes a masterpiece of being when we see it for what it really is. An illusion of existential authority enabled subconsciously by the power of our own fear. It is an opportunity to draw strength from the deepest recesses of our being. The meaning of life isn’t to become enlightened. It is to free ourselves from the devices of our own darkness. It is to face and transform the only darkness that truly exists, our own.

Lots of Solar flares

October 22, 2014

What’s up in space

During the past 48 hours, monster sunspot AR2192 has unleashed seven M-class solar flares. The most powerful of the bunch (Oct 22nd at 0159 UT) was an M9-class eruption that almost crossed the threshold into X-territory. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the extreme ultraviolet flash:

m9_strip2

UV radiation from the flare ionized Earth’s upper atmosphere, causing a brief blackout of HF radio communications on the dayside of Earth (e.g., parts of Asia and Australia). In addition, the explosion might have hurled a CME into space. Confirmation awaits the arrival of coronagraph data from the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO). Stay tuned for updates.

More flares are in the offing. AR2192 has an unstable ‘beta-gamma-delta’ magnetic field that harbors energy for powerful explosions. NOAA forecasters estimate at 65% chance of M-class flares and a 20% chance of X-flares on Oct. 22nd.

*Sunset Solar Eclipse

Oct 17, 2014: Sunsets are always pretty. One sunset this month could be out of this world. On Thursday, Oct. 23rd, the setting sun across eastern parts of the USA will be red, beautiful and … crescent-shaped.

“It’s a partial solar eclipse,” explains longtime NASA eclipse expert Fred Espenak. In other words, the New Moon is going to ‘take a bite’ out of the sun.

The Aldrich plan

October 18, 2014

Aldrich-plan-1912

Aldrich Plan (1910)

Also in 1910, Senator Nelson Aldrich, Frank Vanderlip of National City (Citibank), Henry Davison of Morgan Bank, and Paul Warburg of the Kuhn, Loeb Investment House met secretly at Jekyll Island, a resort island off the coast of Georgia, to discuss and formulate banking reform, including plans for a form of central banking. The meeting was held in secret because the participants knew that any plan they generated would be rejected automatically in the House of Representatives if it were associated with Wall Street. Because it was secret and because it involved Wall Street, the Jekyll Island affair has always been a source of conspiracy theories. But the conspiracy theorists overestimate the significance of the meeting. Everyone knew Wall Street wanted reform, and the Aldrich Plan which the meeting produced was, in fact, rejected by the House.

The Aldrich Plan called for a system of fifteen regional central banks, called National Reserve Associations, whose actions would be coordinated by a national board of commercial bankers. The Reserve Association would make emergency loans to member banks, would create money to provide an elastic currency that could be exchanged equally for demand deposits, and would act as a fiscal agent for the federal government. The Aldrich Plan was defeated in the House as expected, but its outline became a model for a bill that eventually was adopted.

The problem with the Aldrich Plan was that the regional banks would be controlled individually and nationally by bankers, a prospect that did not sit well with the populist Democratic party or with Wilson. The Democrats and Wilson were not opposed to banking reform, nor were they opposed to a form of central banking. They were fearful that the reforms would grant more control of the financial system to bankers, particularly to the Wall Street crowd. They also remembered their history: the First and Second Banks of the United States were brought down in part by foreign ownership of the Banks’ stock, a fear of centralized power, and because the Banks competed with the private banks they were regulating. A return to central banking must not be accompanied by those features.

What eventually emerged was the Federal Reserve Act, also known at the time as the Currency Bill, or the Owen-Glass Act. The bill called for a system of eight to twelve mostly autonomous regional Reserve Banks that would be owned by commerical banks and whose actions would be coordinated by a committee appointed by the President. The Federal Reserve System would then become a privately owned banking system that was operated in the public interest. Bankers would run the twelve Banks, but those Banks would be supervised and by the Federal Reserve Board whose members included the Secretary of the Treasury, the Comptroller of the Currency, and other officials appointed by the President to represent public interests.

*Reincarnation, Karma & Destiny

(excerpts)

When not incarnated into the physical realms, each of us exists in an energetic state which many refer to as spirit. Every sovereign soul is kind of a triad being; comprised of three distinct aspects known as the Thinker, the Doer, and the Knower. When it comes time for another incarnation on earth, only the thinker & doer aspects incarnate into the physical body, the Knower aspect remains in the realm of permanence functioning as a sort of guide & lifeguard, and we call this our Higher Self.

Being as this is a universe of free will & destiny rather than that of a fixed fate; we humans often run smack up against the universal law of unintended consequences as the energy connections come back around to bite us in the ass…otherwise known as karma. Let’s say you spent an incarnation as someone who did violence to others, your karma then would be to live another incarnation on the receiving end of violence, so your soul has the experience of both perspectives. If on the other hand you lived a life of always putting the needs of others before your own; in another life, your needs would all be met quite easily. These days we know the same energy by other names, like poetic justice, or what goes around comes around but regardless what label you put on it, karma always prevails.

Orwell, Huxley, and Today’s Reality

September 6, 2014

Mind Control: Orwell, Huxley, and Today’s Reality

(excerpts)

Consider the world of mainstream journalists, in particular TV news anchors. There we have a world with echoes of 1984, where what is said must conform to the party line. Any thoughtcrime – such as an anchor commenting onscreen that he doesn’t buy the official story of 9/11, or he thinks Russia isn’t an aggressor – would be quickly punished by the equivalent of death – expulsion from the world of journalism.

Thus is maintained the Matrix, the story we are told about US benevolence, the existence of democracy, the sacredness of market forces, and all the rest. With control of major media in just a few hands, the party line can be always maintained, and current (or past) events can be interpreted within that framework. To do otherwise, for a news anchor, would be literally unthinkable. Huxley’s Ministry of Truth is at work in our world, but it is invisible, hiding away in the boardrooms of media conglomerates, and behind the doors of the White House press office.

The same kind thoughtcrime regime is operating in other arenas as well, where socially-sensitive topics are concerned. The peer-review process, and the editorial boards of the relevant journals, ensure that thoughtcrimes are suppressed, when it comes to concerns regarding genetic manipulation, pesticides, fracking, pharmaceuticals, radiation levels, etc. Again, the Ministry of Truth is invisible, residing high up in the chain of corporate boardrooms.

US Government research into scientific mind control began at least in the 1960’s, and has been ongoing. The first approach – the CIA’s Operation Mind Control – was heavy handed, reminiscent of 1984. This research involved giving people psychotropic drugs, along with post-hypnotic suggestions. Quite a bit could be (and has been) accomplished with these kinds of methods, along the lines of The Manchurian Candidate, but it didn’t provide a general solution: two much work was required to program people on an individual basis.

Research then shifted to cult creation. If people can be herded into cults of various kinds, cult dynamics themselves would serve the programming function. This provides a more wholesale approach to mind control, than the individual methods tried earlier. The CIA has never publicly claimed credit for this later research, but the experiments were very successful, including Reverend Jim Jones and the People’s Temple, and David Koresh and Waco.

In this kind of research, the first step is to identify a natural cult leader, who has already shown some success in gathering followers. Then the cult is given support of various kinds. Covert agents are sent in to join the cult, not only to observe and report, but also to provide organizational skills. Funds are channeled to the cult, and local police are warned off, so that the cult can grow unhampered.

In this way, researchers have been able to study how a skilled cult leader operates, how people are drawn into a cult, how loyalty is maintained, and how people can be pushed into extreme beliefs and actions. When everything had been learned that could be learned from a cult, the cult’s leader and members were then killed, so as to hide the evidence of what had really been going on in the experiment.

The ‘conspiracy theory’ meme was launched by the CIA in the wake of the JFK assassination. The official story was so full of holes that more and more people were beginning to doubt it. While the Warren Commission was busy writing its cover-up document, the public began to learn about the existence of ‘conspiracy theorists’. These are people, the story goes, who suffer from paranoid delusions, and sane people should pay no attention to anything they say. If someone even looks at any of those ideas, their own mental stability comes into question.

This mind-control tactic was very effective in marginalizing research into the truth behind the JFK assassination. Anyone who presented evidence contrary to the official story was automatically seen as ‘conspiracy theorist’. By scoffing at such evidence, without looking at it, you could demonstrate that you were mentally balanced. Thus logic and reasoning are banished from the scenario. Either you believe the official story, or your mental health is called into question.

Since then, the conspiracy-theory meme has been carefully nurtured and expanded by the mainstream party lines. This mind-control campaign has been very successful in immunizing the majority of the population against the revelations available on the Internet. Any story not appearing in the mainstream media must by definition be a conspiracy theory, and anything that sounds like a conspiracy theory should be scoffed at and ignored.

Full Supermoon in Aquarius

August 8, 2014

Aquarius Full Moon is a SuperMoon

(excerpt)

The Aquarius Full Moon on August 10 is a SuperMoon. It is one in a series of five SuperMoons this year. This makes the Full Moon extra potent and powerful being so close to the Earth. Full Moons bring to your conscious awareness what has laid hidden. What we may have overlooked or not known can become crystal clear. This Full Moon could be an emotional roller coaster ride. It is an opportunity to stand in your truth and rise above the drama. Ground yourself daily. Do what balances you. Step back and do not react when curve balls are thrown at you. Be proactive and not reactive. This will empower you to be effective. You have no control over what other people say or do. Your point of power lies in what you think and do. Own you power. Your power is in the present in this moment.

*Full Supermoon in Aquarius Horoscopes

(excerpt)

When the friendly and cooperative Aquarius Moon opposes the Sun in regal Leo, we start to see the difference between satisfying ourselves (Leo) and collaborating with others (Aquarius). But both of these signs like to play, which is why this Full Moon, happening on August 10 at 2:09pm EDT, usually puts people into a fun and fiesty mood. Not to mention, this Full Moon is also the biggest, closest of this year’s Supermoons. But beware: stern Saturn’s constraining square to the Full Moon could dampen the party spirit, reminding us that fulfilling obligations should come before having fun.

Oh my goodness, are you ready for the full Moon in Aquarius this Sunday? Or are you pooped out and tired of the effort necessary to carry on the task of evolution (your own as well as the planet)? Yup, got some tests in endurance happening here, but the rewards (illumination of past/present dynamics) will be exhilarating for those that hang in there! Don’t back down or give up just yet…

From Templars to Freemasonry

The symbol shown above is used in Masonic lodges, and is a Rosicrucian symbol (the rose and the cross) combined with a Masonic symbol (the compass and square).

FROM TEMPLARS TO FREEMASONRY

(excerpts)

Even a quick examination of the Templars’ history reveals the major transformations they underwent along the way. They first appear under a Christian façade, but soon enter a darker phase in which un-christian and perverse philosophies and teachings show through. This doesn’t happen all at once, however, and many events are responsible for the changes that occurred.

These changes first came about during the Templars’ sojourn in the Holy Land: During this phase, they became acquainted with the Cabala and learned the mysterious teachings of various other Jewish sects. The Assassins’ mysticism and perverse practices were also incorporated into their system; and the emerging picture reveals that their Christian faith had given way to secret occultist rituals and Black Magic rites. Needless to say, their ideals and mission changed accordingly.

The second cause of their transformation can be explained when we consider that the poor knights of the Templar Order acquired incredible wealth over a relatively short period of time. Given their hopes of attaining mystical powers over the material world through their newly-acquired dark beliefs and practices, it’s no surprise that they began to set their sights on much grander goals.

…the Templars never ceased to exist. Instead, they infiltrated the lodges of the weak and passive Masons, founded the Rosicrucians, organized and strengthened the order, and turned it into an effective tool. The Templars are not a branch or aspect of Masonry. Nor, as the Masons claim, are they “a little influenced by them.” Masonry, along with its symbols, history and ideals, has become a den for the Templars, albeit under a different name.

The Masons’ history being linked to the Temple of Solomon, their basic use of Hiram’s name as a symbol and the profession of stonemasonry, their use of mystic symbols from the Cabbala, their adoption of the Templars’ organizational structure, their ceremonies, oath, dress and rules of promotion being prepared according to the Templars’ rule-all prove that the Templars and Freemasons are one and the same.

As mentioned the Templars encountered no difficulties in penetrating the workers guilds and in Germany, England and Portugal brought these lodges under their control and with this they had found an ideal front and a new, strong organization suitable to be adapted to their purposes.

In short, we have three sister organizations, operating under different names – Templars, Masons and Rosicrucians – but with one single common aim. As the next chapter documents, they continued to increase in power and influence and actively tried to alter the face of the Earth to suit their purposes and still continue to do so, using every means at their disposal.

* TEMPLARS, REVOLUTIONS, MURDERS, AND THE MAFIA

(excerpt)

For a long time the P-2 had been channeling CIA and Vatican funds to fascist groups in Europe and Latin America. Lodge Member Michele Sindona was later arrested on charges of the murder of an Italian lawyer, and died in prison after drinking a cup of poisoned coffee. He was not only the treasurer of the P-2, but also the investment advisor to the Vatican. Sindona was responsible for selling the Vatican’s Italian assets and investing the proceeds in the US. He was working for the Mafia as well as the CIA and had previously channeled funds to his Yugoslavian “friends” and to the Greek military junta that came to power in 1967.

*Global Freemasonry

(excerpt)

One of these so-called secret societies, responsible for planting the roots of Masonry, was the Rose-Cross (Rosicrucian) order, a sort of meeting point between the Templars and Masons. This order, first heard of in the fifteenth century, created a fury of interest in alchemy, especially in Europe, of which its members were said to possess secret knowledge. But the most important legacy of the Rose Cross order today is the naturalist philosophy, and the idea of evolution, of which it is a part. The Mason declares that the roots of Masonry go back to the Templars and the Rosicrucians, stressing the evolutionist philosophy of the latter:

Speculative Masonry or the contemporary organization of Masonry is founded on Medieval construction guilds we refer to as Operative Masonry. But, those who brought the basic speculative elements to this foundation were members of certain organizations that studied pre-historic esoteric systems and the knowledge they contained. The most important of these organizations were the Templars and the Rosicrucians…

It is unknown where and how the Rosicrucian order was established. The first traces of it come from fifteenth century Europe, but it is clear that the order is much older. As distinct from the Templars, the basic interest of the Rosicrucians was scientific. Its members were widely engaged in alchemy….The most important characteristic of its members was the fact that they believed that every stage of development was a stage in the process of evolution. For this reason, they placed naturalism at the basis of their philosophies and became known the “naturalists.”

Another Masonic organization to have developed the idea of evolution was not in the West but it was another Masonic order founded in the East. Grand Master Selami Isindag provides the following information, in an article entitled “Masonry and Us From Its Foundation Until Today”:

In the Islamic world there was a counterpart of Masonry called the Ikhwan as-Safa’ [The Brethren of Purity]. This society was founded in Basra in the time of the Abbasids and published an encyclopedia composed of 54 large volumes. 17 of these dealt with natural science and it contained scientific explanations that closely resembled those of Darwin. These found their way even to Spain and had an influence on Western thought.

The Power of Intention

June 30, 2014

Intention

What is the power of intention?

(excerpt)

Repetition, Repetition, Repetition

We are not as fixed as we have been led to believe. Biologically or in terms of our personality and potential, in every sense of the word.

We all have magnificent potential, but in order to reach that potential we must change. For if we did not need to change, then we would already be living and expressing our highest potential. We must change our thoughts, emotions, beliefs and habits which are in essence our personality.

Don Juan admonished Carlos Castaneda:

“…not merely to think about what he had told me but to turn his concepts into a viable way of life by a process of repetition. He claimed that everything new in our lives … must be repeated to us to the point of exhaustion before we open ourselves to it. He pointed out that repetition is the way our progenitors socialized us to function in the daily world.” (The Art of Dreaming, p.34)

Repetition is the manner in which we have learned almost every skill which today we take for granted. From language, to motor function. Through repetition we retrain literally our state of being which transforms us into a new person, and thus our life transforms because it is only a reflection of our state of being. Achieve this by training yourself to assume the powerful feeling and “unquestionable bodily knowledge that you are” whatever you desire to be.

While this requires enormous effort, it does not need to be a difficult or daunting task because if we can learn to love this self-discipline we will become truly powerful. For this type of work not only leads to personal transformation, but towards consciousness evolution as well.

Many of us have tried to change our thoughts or to create new habits, or to manifest, and have failed, but that does not mean this process doesn’t work. It only means that we didn’t do it properly. It only means that we did not repeat the new state of being and bodily feeling of our intention to ourselves tirelessly until we were able to “turn these concepts into a viable way of life.”

We must inform the field and our subconscious mind (which are the same thing) tirelessly of our intentions until we resonate on the deepest possible level with the idea which has inspired us as to banish all doubt and all incongruity within us. Then we will start to open up to and embody the power of intention.

Blue eyes crying in the rain

Why Don’t You Cry About It: Unlocking the Power of Tears

(excerpt)

… I allowed myself to stay in my body, letting the feelings build up within me. More breaths, this time from a deeper place within. Suddenly, I felt a drop on my hand and realized that it was a tear.

As I continued to breath, I opened my mouth and started allowing myself to create sound. It felt forced, at first, but soon I couldn’t stop. I was giving voice to the feelings inside. Then I sort of naturally began exhaling sharply from my stomach, mimicking the felt-experience of weeping. Before I knew it, I wasn’t faking it anymore. I was there. Tears flowed down my face as I wept, kneeling in the middle of my living room. And they just kept coming, like waves crashing against the shore. I couldn’t control them, and yet I remained calm and present.

I cried for a long time, before finally opening my eyes and slowing my breath back to a normal rate. My whole body was humming, vibrating with sensation. Grounded. Powerful. I felt alive like never before. And something was lighter. So much of the tension in my chest that I had become accustomed to had lifted. I felt as if I had been holding my breath for years and that now I could finally breathe again. And I remember feeling a sense of absolute fearlessness.
