You don’t possess your possessions, they possess you

image3by Brian Thompson.

I shared the following quote on Facebook yesterday and asked people to leave a comment with their intpretation of its meaning:

“If a thief is shackled by iron handcuffs
and a king by golden handcuffs,
does that mean that the king is not bound?”

—Shri Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

If you read the comments, you’ll notice how every person perceived the teaching quite differently.

The world is no different. We only see our own reflection.

Every one of our perceptions is filtered through our life’s unique conditioning and circumstances, which the mind then projects onto the world.

But… I digress, that’s a bonus teaching.

In the above quote’s metaphor, both the thief and king are shackled and bound. Neither man is free.

Both men are handcuffed by chains they have unknowingly placed upon themselves.

They are imprisoned by their desires. They are victim to their own ignorance.

The thief’s ignorance is obvious. He has taken what wasn’t his, and for this, his freedom has been taken away.

The king’s ignorance is no different. He surrounded himself with opulence, wealth, power, and prestige, and unknowingly bound himself by the very same thing as the thief—by attaching his happiness onto something external, to things that were outside of him, and that weren’t truly his.

If someone offered to unlock the thief’s iron chains, he would gladly accept, and he would be free. But, if someone offered to unlock the king’s golden chains, he would certainly resist. He would refuse to let go of the perceived wealth that he finds himself chained to.




Time & Attention – An Intro To Mindfulness

time-machine-1-384x253Time and energy are the fundamental resources we have in this existence. We spend our time acquiring energy to exist, and we spend our energy to experience what time can give us. We spend our time surviving, providing for ourselves, our loved ones, and improving the quality of our experience in this reality. Time is the currency we will focus on in this segment, as it is a more valuable asset than money.

Many of us in our fast-paced modern world feel as though we never have enough time to get everything done. We find we do not have the quality of time to spend with our loved ones and we often feel there’s also not enough time to fulfill our goals and deepest desires.

Time is not only life’s inherent currency, but it is also the space in which we live out our experiences. Our experiences then, are products of our choices we make and when we make the choice to invest (or waste) time on an activity, we are ‘spending’ that currency, thus perpetually altering our account balance of life.

Ultimately, the balance in our account is the result of our life choices, which reflects whether we have invested our time wisely or wasted it frivolously. At the end of the day, regardless of circumstance, we still remain ultimately accountable for what and who, we have spent our time on, and then must live with the results we are left with.

In reality though, time is only an illusion, created by our physical experience and interpretation of reality. The truth is, there is only this present moment. Being fully mindful of this present moment, while both gaining wisdom from the past, and planning to apply this wisdom to our future choices, is the best utilization of time. Unfortunately we often waste the present moment on things that steal our attention and focus, such as sorrows, traumas, and regrets of the past, as well as the stresses, worries, and anxieties of the future. All the while missing the opportunities that pass us by in the present moment. Other things that waste our time are the many meaningless distractions that add no value to our account’s bottom line, diverting us away from our goals and decreasing the quality of our experience and the potential possibilities of banking on one’s wisest use of time. These can take the form of time wasting activities like types of entertainment that dull the mind and distract us in our personal life, as well as the ever common destructive habit of over-thinking. These are examples of a general lack of awareness.

We all need fun and entertainment to feel alive but the question I beg you to ask yourself is, what kind of entertainment are you engaged in and how much time do you spend on it? I am not one to judge other people’s tastes, as a former musician I enjoy indulging in various forms of entertainment, I’m just trying to get you to analyze what you spend your time and attention on and to ask yourself if those things bring true value to your life.




The Third Eye – The Sixth Sense

the-third-eyeby Dylan Harper

The third eye in reality is the pineal gland. It is the spiritual third eye, our Inner vision and it is considered the seat of the soul.

It is located in the geometric center of the cranium. The third eye, an inner eye is a mystical and esoteric concept referring in part to the ajna chakra in certain Eastern and Western spiritual traditions. It is also spoken of as the gate that leads within to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness.

The third eye is a natural part of every person but it is a meta organ. It consists of all the senses and mind working together as a larger more powerful sensory organ.

The third eye as a sense can be used in many different ways. It opens up our senses to patterns around us. It’s used by seers to make connections and answer questions. It’s used by energy workers to feel the energy and then manipulate that energy. It’s part of empathy where a person can touch and feel the emotions of others. Many other applications exist for how people have used the third eye.

It is possible to use the third eye to learn how to sense and visually interpret energy around us. This helps people work with the process of Motion, Activity and Interchange more easily and completely. Energy instead of being abstract concept then becomes a tangible property of life to work with once people learn how to sense it and interact with it.

Some facts about the third eye are as follows:

Location: At the base of the skull, at the medulla oblongata.

It´s location at the front of the head is between the eyebrows at the third eye.

Color: Indigo. A combination of blue and red.

Tone: OM (O represents the Sun or the third eye) (M represents the Moon or medulla.)

Element: Electrical or telepathic energy.

Sense: Though

Deficient energy: Non assertive, undisciplined, oversensitive to the feelings of others, afraid of success, schitzophrenic (unable to distinguish between Ego self and Higher self).

Excessive energy: Egomaniac, proud, manipulative, religiously dogmatic, authoritarian.




Decoding Imperial Control Words & The Sacred Nature of Race, Gender & Sexuality ~ Neil Kramer on Veritas Radio

S y n o p s i s

Kramer is back, and even though there is nothing new under the sun, his fresh perspective on important topics is always refreshing.

1. Decode imperial control words . Has our language been manipulated to cause control? Every word carries energy and energy can be transmuted into action. Could it be that the present vernacular is to enslave us via language?

2. The sacred nature of race, gender & sexuality. We are told that we are equal even though differences prevail in nature. Why do we keep focusing on race? As many wise have pondered, perhaps to eradicate racism we should stop using labels. For millennia, tribes coexisted in harmony with other tribes without being pushed to merge. Why are the powers that want to be so interested in eradicating sovereignty, individual cultures, and the will of the people to preserve their own identity? What is behind all of this?

3. Deconstructing new age and parapolitical paradigms. Is new age a new religion. What is really behind this movement? Are its followers willing or unwilling participants because the practices seem benign, foreign, and even exotic? What are the current political paradigms?

All and much more with Neil Kramer.



The Earth’s Magnetic Field And Consciousness

earths-magneticby Tom Kenyon

The magnetic field of earth is involved in a perturbation or morphing. This is taking place interdimensionally, and the net effect is incremental surges in amplitude or strength of the magnetic field. This morphing of earth’s magnetic field is like a wave that rises and falls very quickly, and the oscillations are minute, but distinct. This is having a very strange effect upon human consciousness, specifically your biological experience. Many people are experiencing an increase of exhaustion and weariness. (these symptoms are also caused by movements of energies from deep space as they pass through your galaxy and your solar system.)

But this (perturbation) is of a different category. This is caused by the magnetic field itself, which is responding to the deep energies from space. It is a response of the molten core of your earth itself; and the magnetic field is having a conversation with the cosmos, if you wish to think of it in this metaphorical way. Now, your science does not view things in this manner, but from our perspective the magnetic field is having a conversation with these cosmic visitors, the energies from deep space, which are, by nature, catalysts for spiritual evolution.

Another set of symptoms directly related to the perturbations of your magnetic field are distinct changes in how you hold short term memory—because memory is a function of the magnetics of your own nervous system and that of earth. Your brain processes information through the minute gravitational and non-gravitational fields of it’s own structure and it is affected directly by fluctuations in the earth’s magnetic field. And so you can expect an increase in short term memory anomalies. You may find yourself speaking a sentence and suddenly the words do not come to you or you mix up the words from their normal syntax. While in some cases this is the sign of a brain disorder, you will find this happening within the general populace at an increasing rate. Escalations in collective short-term memory glitches will lead humanity to a most novel situation. This situation is an opportunity or a curse, depending on how you work with it.

The opportunity is to see through the mental matrix of your own creation. What we mean by this is when your mind is unable to continue its story line in the ways it is used to, you have an opportunity to glimpse the realities behind the curtain (of perception). You are the ones who have created the curtain, and you have done this to keep yourselves separated from things you do not wish to see or experience directly, or in some cases what others do not wish you to see or experience directly. We refer here to the unseen manipulators of your collective reality—those who hold the economic and political reins of power.




The Baltic Sea Object is an Atlantean Monument Cast in Magnetic Basalt ‘Firestone’

The stunning and highly controversial find made by marine treasure hunters using side-scanning sonar to detect shipwrecks in the Baltic Sea has finally been identified as a submerged monumental construction from the Paleolithic era. The giant circular seafloor promontory measuring ~60m in diameter is actually a terraced monument built by the highly advanced Atlantean civilization over 14,000 years ago.

Co-discoverer and Ocean X team leader Dennis Aasberg describes just a few of the geometric features presented by the gargantuan disc-shaped temple rising above the sea floor, likening it to concrete:

It looks like a round object separated from the bottom. It looks… like concrete. When we brush it off its [surface is] black. The object looks the same underneath as on the upper side. Same color too. Just like a plate on the bottom. And it has something that looks like big stairs… perhaps one meter high each step. Its strange… We have not been able to find more holes besides the 2 meter hole with a [recessed] square [formation] around it.

baltic_sea_monument2Prohibitive conditions severely limit filming of the ancient monumental structure, especially rough seas and the very poor visibility of <1m near the bottom. Animated digital terrain models allow a clearer perspective of the massive proportions and complex geometric configuration of the submerged Atlantean monument (above). The greatest hindrance to the seafloor site investigation is an intense electromagnetic vortex that perpetually interferes with all types of electrical equipment situated on or above the ancient monument –in the vertical water column, onboard ships at the sea surface and even affecting low-flying airplanes.




Transcending the Realms of Duality and Separation

imgby Divine Cosmos

Our physical reality is the embodiment of separation consciousness.  Ours is a reality characterized by competition, conflict, and fear and it is simply a reflection of our state of consciousness.  For we are creating all of it — the good, and the bad, and the ugly with our thoughts and our beliefs.  The physical realms are where we manifest dualistic realities that contain good vs. evil, competition vs. cooperation, conflict vs. harmony, and fear vs. love.  All realities, physical or non-physical, are constructs of thought and we are creating all of it.

Higher Realms and Higher Ideals

None of these things; evil, competition, conflict, or fear, exist in the higher non-physical realms of existence, and that’s because these realms are realms of higher levels of consciousness that long ago left behind the state of separation/duality consciousness and moved into a state of love/unity consciousness.

Truth, Right and Wrong, and Us Against Them

In our current plane of reality people seek for, argue about, and even fight over what is the truth and who is right and wrong, devolving into “us against them” mentalities. And it is so futile because there are no absolute truths, all truth is relative to your perspective and level of consciousness. The only things that are absolute in all of existence are that all is consciousness, the multidimensional structure of consciousness, and the laws and mechanics of reality creation.  Everything else is simply what we bring into existence by what imagine and believe.  Anything and everything in our reality can be erased in an instant and replaced with anything of our choosing.  We are creators and we are creating with our thoughts, beliefs, and feelings.

As we progress as beings through the physical planes of existence, we do so by transcending one level of consciousness and attaining the next which allows us to perceive and experience whole new levels of reality and leave behind the prior levels forever. As we progress through the levels of consciousness, we also progress through the physical planes of reality, and we progressively move away from separation consciousness towards unity consciousness. By the time we progress through all the planes of reality that we would consider physical, we have fully transcended separation consciousness and have no need to incarnate into the physical planes ever again.




Reclaim Your Mind: The Importance of Decoding Your Thoughts

mind-thoughts“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” ~ Aristotle

It is important to take control of your thoughts. For you would be surprised to find how many of them aren’t actually yours. If we aim to de-clutter our lives of the unnecessary, it is paramount to help remove ourselves from the clenching intoxication of adopted thoughts. So go on throw your soul a lifeline and pull it out of the trenches of your mind.

The impermanence of our soul’s relationship with the materialized ego conjures up certain thoughts from the ether around us. Hence we may be in different parts of the world (or walks of life), but may share the same insecurities and perspectives through the whirlpool of collective thoughts.

This beckons the question of what is permanent here and what will pass on through the body into the other realms to converse with our higher selves. Where there is no space for words that speak of compromise, business or politics; only the art of abstracts that do not compromise. For in silence we are unlimited, but in words confined.

“There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.” ~ William Shakespeare

Thoughts have the ability to keep us blindsided by a specific outlook, forever viewing life through its filters. Until a particular perspective is limiting us, we continue to live in our thoughts and remain voyeurs to the mysteries and experiences we chance upon.

The side effects of an uncontrolled mind

If we allow certain thoughts and patterns of thoughts to unhinge us, our lives would forever be devoid of mental peace. It is hardly a compromise that leads us out of a situation that isn’t working out, but our faith in the inexpressible and inexplicable that welcomes miracles into our lives.
