Being Crazy in a Sick Society Is Actually Healthy

f70a9891-bb7b-451b-9dc5-2499f409fca6To be normal is to be sick

By Sofo Archon / theunboundedspirit.com

Krishnamurti once said that “it is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” However, being born and brought up in such a society, most people can’t realize that it is sick, let alone that they are part of this sickness, just like fish, which, living in water, cannot realize that they are in water and part of the sea life.

What does it mean to live a normal life? In the modern world, especially in the West, it means to be brainwashed at a very young age for over a decade by what we call schooling, to later on work as a wage slave for almost the rest of your life competing with others so as to merely survive, to mindlessly consume products without end because manipulative advertising convinced you to do so, while at the same time you unconsciously harm the planet we inhabit, to slowly poison your physical organism by feeding it with disease causing foods, to obey to the rules and believe in the dogmas handed down to you by those in authority, to be passive and uncreative, suppressing yourself in countless of ways, living in suffering yet doing nothing to overcome it.

If you stop for a moment and think, you might realize that this kind of living is absolutely sick, yet it is accepted by almost everyone as healthy and is actually rewarded by society. In fact, those of us who are better at living this way are considered to be the most successful and respected, while those who are different, more sensitive and intelligent, desiring to create a different path in life, are ridiculed and looked down upon, being considered as stupid, weird, or even crazy.

But what is the point of living the way most people live? Life can be lived so much better — we can live playfully, filled with laughter and love, with a desire to be creative, at peace with ourselves and others, savoring the gifts of existence. Unfortunately, only a few people manage to think outside the mental box that society has provided us with and escape from the matrixthey’ve been unconsciously living in since they were born. Those are the rebellious ones who at some point in their lives felt the need to break free from the chains of tradition and help create a more beautiful world for all beings on earth.

Rebelling against normalcy

To rebel against normalcy is the most difficult thing you can do because you need the guts to be honest with yourself and others. To voice the truth in a world where almost everyone is living in lies is quite a risky thing to do. Speaking the truth means going against the current of tradition, which in turn means confronting the herd mentality and having the strength to keep on going your way regardless the hardships you might face.

Lucid-Dreaming Quantum Physics

image1by Paul Lvey

The following is excerpted from from Paul Levy’s upcoming book, The Quantum Revelation: A Modern-Day Spiritual Treasure, and was originally published on Paul’s website Awaken the Dream.

The observer effect, the central pillar of quantum physics, reveals that the act of observation is not merely a passive reception of information, but rather, is a creative act that we are all—knowingly or unknowingly—participating in every moment of our lives. This process is tantamount to the same kind of dynamic creativity that we engage with in our night dreams. In a dream, the un-manifest potentialities (the wavefunction of dream possibilities) within the unconscious, depending upon the psyche of the dreamer, are actualized or “dreamed up” into specific appearances through and as the fabric of the dream. In a typical non-lucid dream, the dreamer relates to the forms of the dream as if they exist objectively, separate from themselves (which is to say, just like most of us relate to waking life), and then reacts to, and becomes conditioned by the appearances within the dream as if they are other than their own mind, which further conjures up the dream to manifest as if it is objectively real and other than themselves, in a self-perpetuating feedback loop whose generative source is our own mind.

When we become lucid in a dream, the idea is not to control the dream—which would be an expression of our non-lucidity (i.e., the spell of the separate self)—for in trying to control the dream, we are still relating to it as something other than ourselves. Rather, when we become lucid in a dream, we become naturally “in control” of ourselves, which is to say in touch with our own sovereign power of co-creating reality. When we become lucid, our relationship to the forms of the dream changes, for once we recognize that the dream is our own energy appearing seemingly outside of ourselves, we are able to creatively flow with the manifestations of the dream in a different way than when we were entranced by its forms.

When quantum physics was first formulated in the early part of the twentieth century, it was during a time of great collective asleep-ness. Quantum physics’ creation/discovery can be seen as an inkling of a burgeoning awakening in the collective unconscious, expressed through the realm of science. The process that quantum physics is articulating regarding how an observer/participant evokes (i.e., “dreams up”) reality is generally unfolding unconsciously in most humans, which is to say most of us in the waking dream of life are dreaming non-lucidly. A question that naturally arises is what would happen as more of us become increasingly aware of the world-shaping creative power that we are wielding, which is to say how would things change as we wake up to our powers of quantum creation? How would an amplification of our awareness of our powers of quantum creation affect these very powers as we are more and more consciously using them? Like quantum physics reflects back to us, oftentimes asking the right question is more important than finding the right answer.

How We Create Our Own Spiritual Growth

001by Frank M Wanderer

During our spiritual Journey we accumulate a vast amount of knowledge of the world. From the books read, lectures heard and conversations we try to pick the useful and interesting bits of information, ideas, thoughts and theories.

We attempt to make an image of reality from the accumulated spiritual knowledge and experience, trying to create the mosaic image of Truth.

Our mosaic image of “Truth” is realized as a spiritual scenario in our daily life. There may be a number of selfish motivations behind the hunger for experience and quest for completeness, but the spiritual scenarios are rather standard, so they contain lots of similar elements. Let us see a few of these:

  1. Every spiritual seeker finds himself or herself a philosophy, a study, a Master, who is very close to him/her. This is the starting point. Some of the spiritual seekers believe that the starting point for them is the teachings of Eckhart Tolle: e. g. the endeavour for finding the Now, the Present. Others are attracted to the teachings of Osho, Mooji, or Krishnamurti, and so on.
  1. The second important common element of spiritual scenarios is based upon this. The mind creates an image about the philosophy for itself, trying to comprehend it and weave from it the clothes for the spiritual seeker.
  1. The clothes vary to a great extent, depending on the chosen starting philosophy and Master. But the fabric always consists of the expectations; how I am supposed to behave, what methods I should use in order to see the spiritual experience offered by the philosophy chosen. For instance: how can I be present in the Now in accordance with the teachings of my master?

Resistance to Fears: Laurie Huston Interviews Tom Campbell

Laurie Huston from News the Heart is talking with physicist Tom Campbell on our Reality. This is a deep conversation about how we resist our fears. It is always about Choice, however our fears are often unconscious. We discuss that Tom’s work on News for the Heart is how to apply his theories. We talk about how we often are concerned about our symptoms and not the cause of the problem. We tend to focus on the goal, where life is a process. Generally, we are focused, and our intent is looking at what is wrong and how to fix, change and manipulate the situation. We focus on what to do, vs how we can BE and who we are from a BEing level. The whole point of this physical reality is to make choices and to evolve the quality of our consciousness towards love through making ‘loving & caring decisions’; choices about others not just yourself.

We have to own our problems, take responsibility for our choices and own our triggers. However, this process isn’t easy and it takes a level of courage to deeply make changes from this BEing level. We have to want to stop being a victim, blaming others or our situations on something outside ourselves and take full responsibility. To authentically look at how our fears continue to add to our story and keep us from evolving in a loving inner BEingness. We shared that when we are focused on our fears, our story, it is all about ME and our Ego; it’s all about YOU! And that’s the problem, as long as you stay unconscious of your fears, you will continue to choose your fears. However, if you can become conscious of your choices you will get an opportunity to make another choice, one of Love! Join us for this fascinating discussion! We’re Getting to the Heart of what Matters!’

A Knowing that is beyond the mind

image1by Brian Thompson

There is a light that is beyond the mind, and you are That.

You are That which illuminates—the inner-knowing essence. You are That which allows you to know that you exist. You are not any experience, for you are the experiencing itself—an invisible, formless, and nameless presence of intimate understanding.

You are the Knowing.

You are the field of infinite awareness in which all things flicker into temporary being. But these “things” that we experience are all momentary happenings, and, therefore, are fundamentally unreal and cannot be said even to exist.

All observed things are a pulsation within awareness—a brief appearance whose perceived existence is due only to the duration of its pulse.

Does a spark exist? It can be said to be a fact, but it doesn’t exist. It has no reality outside of the precise moment of its observation. It does not “exist” outside of the mind that perceives it. It is only the mind that gives a spark its apparent existence, an existence which is entirely conceptual and has no independent reality of its own.

The human manifestation is no different—we don’t really exist, and yet, we seem to. It is only the duration of our physical body’s apparent flicker in time that gives the impression of temporal existence. But, and here’s the kicker—time doesn’t exist either since it is just a concept of the human mind. So, even the perceived duration of a “thing” is unreal.

All “things” are unreal, no matter how you look at it. All things, in truth, are no-thing at all. Everything is nothing.

A “thing” (including a person) is nothing but a concept, a projection of the human mind attempting to give an impression of reality to all that it perceives. While in actuality, all things have no independent existence. Nothing has reality but you. You lend your reality to whatever you perceive.

The View

by Elva Thompson

Let there be many windows in your soul – That all the glory of the universe – may beautify it. Not the narrow pane – Of one poor creed can catch the radiant rays – That shine from countless sources. Ralph Waldo Trine.

31198302_mOne window

Most people have only one view of the world – one window to look through at the ‘whirled’ of all there is – and are unaware that there are other views – other windows to other worlds.(See Folk of the Hollow Hill.)

Undoing the programming

The understanding that the physical world is not solid is a bit of a stretch for most people. After all, for many folk, the security of solidity is all they know. It is hard for them to comprehend that everything alive is an energetic unit, a spark of energy existing in a sea of energy – a pulse vibrating within five bands of power that move at different speeds – speeds that resonate on our chakras and create our five sense world.

The filters

The chakras in our bodies are filters, sensors that decode vibratory information, and are the lens through which we experience ‘the dual whirled’ and play the game of opposites we call life.

21047250_mBecause our sixth and seventh chakras are blocked by genetic engineering and electromagnetic interference, what we receive in terms of awareness is drastically reduced – and therefore our view of reality is skewed. We cannot see into the other worlds that share the same space as our own because our psychic vision has been compromised.

The game of opposites

Duality dictates opposites, and to play the game of life requires two sets of players with opposing views. Perhaps there are two species of humanity living side by side, both groups look the same, but one is ensoulled and in service to others, while the other is the fractal consciousness of service to self. The game of ‘me versus you’ and ‘us versus them’ has been deliberately set up in a controlled environment – the third dimension, and handicapped by our limited awareness we are not equipped to see the whole picture

Man prides himself on being the pinnacle of creation, and yet, he is totally unaware that he is energetic food for an unseen vampiric species. Perhaps this is the answer to the age old question: what am I doing here, and what’s the purpose of life. The truth is, that some of us don’t belong here, and if we had all our faculties intact we would see the conspiracy against our species in a heartbeat. Earth is a farm and just as we farm animals for hamburger on the hoof, we ourselves are farmed – exploited for our energy – the loosh rote.(See my article Meet the Firm)

Frankincense, a powerful cancer fighter

frankincense-plantFrankincense Essential Oil Might Be Superior to Chemotherapy in Destroying Cancer Cells

Frankincense has been around for quite a while. It has long been part of religious ceremonies in the Middle-East and is believed to be one of the 3 gifts offered to baby Jesus. It has been a popular ingredient in ancient cosmetics used by Anglo-Saxons and ancient Egyptians.

Today, this fragrant resin from the Boswellia Carteri tree is transformed into a valuable essential oil used by many aromatherapists and natural health practitioners. It is a great all round essential oil to fight inflammation, infections, and premature aging. It soothes the digestive tract, boosts immunity, and improves oral and mental health.

While all of this is already quite impressive, the best is yet to come. Frankincense has shown to be an excellent cancer fighter, too. Research suggest that it may be more potent than chemotherapy as it doesn’t destroy healthy tissues or cells, doesn’t cause any side-effects, and is able to kill chemotherapy-resistant cancer cells.

Frankincense, a powerful cancer fighter

Researchers from Leicester University found that the resin contains a chemical compound, acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid (AKBA), with the potential to destroy cancer cells at a realistic concentration. They say it may be very successful in treating breast, prostate, ovarian and colon cancer.

They found AKBA to be very effective in the treatment of last stage ovarian cancer which is extremely difficult to treat.

“After a year of studying the AKBA compound with ovarian cancer cell lines in vitro, we have been able to show it is effective at killing cancer cells. Frankincense is taken by many people with no known side effects. This finding has enormous potential to be taken to a clinical trial in the future and developed into an additional treatment for ovarian cancer,” said Kamla Al-Salmani, a Ph.D. student from the University’s Department of Cancer Studies and Molecular Medicine.

They also found frankincense to be effective in killing cancer cells that don’t respond to chemotherapy. While more research is needed to back up these findings, the use of frankincense oil to fight cancer looks very promising.

Dr. Mark Evans, Kamla’s Ph.D. Supervisor and Lecturer in the University’s Department of Cancer Studies and Molecular Medicine added: “We have shown that this frankincense compound is effective at killing ovarian cancer cells at realistic concentrations. What has been most surprising is that the cells we have tested which are resistant to chemotherapy have shown to be more sensitive to this compound, suggesting frankincense may indeed be able to help overcome drug resistance, and lead to an improved survival rate for patients with late-stage ovarian cancer.”
