It’s not that we awaken within a three-dimensional physical universe, as an ‘enlightened being’—that is, as a space-time entity who has had some shift in her perceptual capabilities—it’s rather that the universe (including one’s body) is finally recognized to be, not a universe at all, but a mixture of sense percepts and conceptualizations – the non-dual nature of which suddenly become readily apparent in that moment of awakening, and makes it abundantly clear that there isn’t anything physical going on.
Physicality is thereby revealed as the mental fabrication it always was – and at last, we’re liberated from an imagined bondage.
‘Imagined’, because the whole problem is that we see everything through this fallacious model wherein we ‘exist’ as objects in space-time, and therefore subjects to a variety of ‘laws’ we have invented; the most prominent of which is the law of causation and, let’s not forget, the law of you-must-inevitably-die-someday.
Upon awakening then, we’re liberated from these constraints. No longer are we confined by such artificial bounds, because we now recognize that both the constraints and whoever is constrained is merely a product of that false physical model of reality; a model now and forever put on the shelf along tooth fairies, unicorns and santa claus.
Let me put this in another way. Every apparent thing, including the so called physical universe, is reducible to our knowing of it. Strip away all the falseness, all the erroneus conceptual structures surrounding our experience of reality and we’re left with just perception.
And perception is nothing but pure knowing.
And there’s nothing physical about knowing.
Knowing does not have width or height. It doesn’t have breadth or depth. There is no start or end to knowing.
What you’re looking at right now is knowing made manifest.

Think you can’t grow much food in an urban area? Think again. One family’s 4,000 square foot farm in Pasadena, California “not only feeds a family but revolutionizes the idea of what can be done in a very unlikely place—the middle of a city.” KCET reporter Val Zavala gives us a glimpse into the Dervaes family’s Path to Freedom Urban Homestead. “I brought the country to the city rather than having to go out to the country,” said Jules Dervaes, who created the farm with his three adult children, Justin, Anais and Jordanne.
They grow almost all of the food they need. Ninety percent of their all-organic, vegetarian dietcomes from their garden. The operation involves 400 varieties of vegetables, fruits and edible flowers, which is 6,000 pounds of food a year. They raise eight chickens, four ducks and two goats, which provide them with eggs and milk. Chefs from high-end restaurants come directly to their house to buy their excess.
When asked if he had any doubts in the beginning, Jules admits he did. “I kept thinking this place was too small. There’s no way that we are going to be able to feed ourselves, plus I never thought we’d be able to grow the vegetables for the market,” he said. Dervaes decided to embark on this endeavor because he was concerned about what was in his and his children’s food. He wanted them to eat organic, GMO-free food, and he knew the best way to ensure that was to grow it himself.
The family has a solar panel on the roof that provides all of their electricity. Not that they use much. Most of their “gizmos,” says Anais, “are hand-powered” like their hand-crank smoothie maker. That puts their electricity bill at about $12 per month. Their car runs on biodiesel, which they make from vegetable waste that restaurants drop off at their house for free. These people have all the hook ups.
Reincarnation is spoken of a lot as something that is a possible outcome for us when our physical bodies die. But rarely do we look at our current lives and wonder in we are a reincarnate.
I recently wrote an article titled “4 signs that this isn’t your first life on earth“, and it seemed to resonate with a lot of people. I was amazed at how many people ended up messaging me saying it made so much sense to them. It’s not a coincidence that you happen to feel as though you have lived here before while simultaneously holding an interest for spirituality. At some point, we have to look within ourselves and wonder if we are currently living as a reincarnate.
Most people don’t read articles like this. They don’t believe in the existence of a soul, let alone reincarnation. Chances are, you are not just another number in the human population. You have special qualities that make you feel different from other people.
I believe this is because you are part of a special group of people that reincarnated here on purpose. Maybe you came here to help others evolve, to alleviate karma, or to develop as a soul. Whatever the reason may be, here are 3 signs that you have reincarnated into this life:
From an early age, your life has been full of lessons. Either you have been through a lot of things emotionally, or you are very reflective by nature and extract lessons from any instance you can. From a young age, you have constantly had experiences which cause to to reflect and evolve. Other people seem to cruise through life on autopilot, but you have experienced a thing or two. And because of this, you have lots of wisdom you can offer to other people.
“Wow, I’m sick of doubt. The servants have the power, dog-men and their mean women pulling poor blankets over our sailors. I’m sick of dour faces Staring at me from the TV Tower, I want roses in my garden bower; dig?” – Jim Morrison; An American prayer
Did we make it to the other side, did we unknowingly cross that reality gap, now finding ourselves somehow lost in a void of reason, where there used to be fences of conformity?
Did we slowly pull the razor-like hooks out of our psychological skin to find us floating where gravity used to reign?
Did we find a safe place to lay our burdens; did we make it to the chapel of an inner certainty?
Did The Matrix become so obvious that we now can see, feel and touch it, and living in it, obeying it suddenly is not an option anymore?
Forgetting to ‘administer’ yourself in the Matrix, forgetting to fill out the forms, ask for permissions, slowly like a skilled dancer we can move ever so smoothly even when it stops the music?
Forgetting the logical things, forgetting to believe in a snowstorm? Instinctively now, hearing the false tune of slow foxtrot in the ballroom, insisting on the Mambo – passion driven we are.
Are we searching for something that’s already found us?
A friend said to me: I can’t find the celestial anymore.
I said to my friend: You’re looking for redemption outside of you.
Is a matriarchal society the solution to our problems?
I’ve just returned from Crete, where I visited the ancient palace of Knossos, and the archaeological museum in Heraklion, where thousands of the artifacts and artworks of ancient Crete are displayed.
The most striking thing about the culture of ancient Crete (or Minoan culture, as it is often called) is how prominent women are. They are everywhere in Minoan artwork, on pottery, frescoes and figurines (small stone statues). They are shown as priestesses, goddesses, dancing and talking at social occasions, in beautiful dresses with their breasts on show. There is a striking fresco of a beautifully dressed woman surrounded by a group of half naked dancing men.
It is clear that – as many archaeologists have agreed – this was a society in which women had very high status; at least as high as men.
Some archaeologists believe that the Minoans worshiped a goddess, and that women were the main religious leaders. Women certainly weren’t oppressed – they obviously took a full and active role in every aspect of life. As a result, some archaeologists have characterised ancient Crete as a matriarchal culture.
What is also striking about the artwork and decorations are the beautiful natural images everywhere – colorful and vibrant images of flowers, birds, fish and other animals, together with beautiful symbols and patterns. These seemed to fill every piece of pottery and every wall space, expressing a deep connection to nature and a sense of its sacredness. The whole culture seemed to have an atmosphere of joy and lightness, a lack of oppression and fear.
