The Crippling Nature of a Split Reality

April 8, 2010

We have split what is one into two and have, through our ignorance (i.e. the act of ignoring), discarded a full and complete half of what we are. Since this aspect of reality, or perspective of reality has been ignored and the normal faculties which allow our access to “other,” very specific realities have been unused by us for so long, we are blind, crippled and lacking in the ability that are needed for us to do what it is we need to do as humans, and what we need to do to survive.

From the beginning whence everything comes and goes is where we come from and go. From emptiness we have been placed where we are and know it not – we know not that we are full.

So I speak in parable now, but this will not always be the way. By my own assignment I will guide you from the outer to the inner, and from the Left into the Right.

With our fixed and determined rational we will access our own plastic irrelevance and by doing so will access ALL the worlds and ALL the dimensions. We will discover all things to be one.

We will confound ourselves as we are in the Left until the left surrenders its own hardened ways. We will test twisted logic with clear logic until it collapses in the futility of trying to know what it cannot. It is through this that the Right will become a participant in the dance once again – only this partner values the other, and knows it needs the other. We must place our attention now on something that has never ceased to exist.

I have mentioned the quality of skepticism and the ability to question – I will mention them again. These things must be applied to your situation today and in every moment of every day. You must question your authorities, teachers and experts.

You must question yourself.

There is no way to describe what happens to the hardened neural pathways in your brain when you mind is changed, except that they, too, are changed. Practice changing your mind, and here I mean sincerely and devotedly practice changing. Question everything you can, especially those things that you know – that you are certain of.

Suffice it to say, we must begin with change, and change only begins with change.

Blame – What is it Good For?

April 4, 2010

Blame – what good does it do you? You value it like a rare and glittering prize, and yet you slop it around indiscriminately in your little world like it has value to everyone, but it is actually the refuse and pollution of your own little existence. I know this sounds a little harsh, but some things must be said without mincing words.

You spew blame out of your mouth like a baby spews out food it doesn’t want and vomits that which remains, but you accept it like a profound truth. Nevertheless, blame is vomit, for it comes from within you and is expelled quite easily, even violently. What do you learn from this – how does blame better your life? Think about this – who will clean up the mess you create around you and who will wipe the mess off your face?

You are responsible for all that you think and feel, say and direct – all your responses and reactions to both your inner and outer worlds can be possessed by one hand only, and that hand is yours. You cannot give these things to others in an attempt to be released from them. Thankfully, what cannot be given away can still be released.

Let’s quickly examine this phenomena of blame and begin –

The most peculiar thing is that while you live in a paradigm of blame and pain, you have no clue that it is a deceitful way to live – deceitful to both you and others. Blame is a lie we tell ourselves, and we believe it so deeply we see nothing wrong with it. It is as if it is a universal law required for human survival.

We think blame is normal and natural, but nothing could be further from the truth. IT IS A LIE that can only lessen you – not empower you. You will never know you have another choice until you give this up – until you give up the blame game. However, it seems the human cannot let anything go unless its replacement is within immediate reach.

In our transitional times, humanity is a stumbling adolescent who is focussed on the pain that its baby teeth are being pushed out by some unknown and bizarre force –  its new teeth, its adult teeth. These are the teeth that will take you into the future. There is nothing for you to do but let go of your baby teeth and know they will be replaced with something better, something stronger. Your baby teeth are the teeth of blame, of infancy, of immaturity, but they must come out. They will be replaced by something more suited to the job.

Let me finish with this –

Until you begin to see things as an adult, you will never know how far you have taken your childish games, and how empowered you can really be.

I’m just a little baby
You’re lucky to have me
I’m cute and sweet as candy
As charming as a fable
I’m innocent and disabled
So hug me and kiss me
Then wipe my butt and piss me
I hope you never leave
Cuz who would hear me scream?
Nobody understands
Except the toys in my hands…

Just Step Back, and the World Might be Yours

March 15, 2010

The general agreement among those who entangle themselves in the various practices provided by our world religions, philosophies and spirituality would say this –

“Step by step we climb…”

I would say this –

“Just step back, and the world might be yours.”

There is a fascinating phenomena that occurs within one who steps back from the world. It is in stepping-back that one develops the necessary “traits” that are needed to unify one’s self with the world around them. By stepping back, one becomes an observer of all that surrounds them, and all they are involved with.

But this is not enough.

I have directly addressed the various attitudes, directions and perspectives that are all part of what I will call here the “enlightenment recipe”, which is discussed in various ways in “Dreams of the Magus.” In that book, I have also alluded to many things that follow this personal shift in perception. Those who have already made certain changes in their lives will recognize these things for exactly what they are. Where a blog does not provide the venue for such detailed discussion as books provide, I cover the essentials only at this point. I mention the former for one reason only – we must begin somewhere in this puzzling quandary called reality that we have created for ourselves.

I will elaborate now on what can be a very special moment for one who wishes to awaken, a moment that forever changes you, and lasts with you until the end of all that is.

I have said that stepping back is not enough. It is only half of the formula because it is a passive thing – it must be balanced with something else, something active. This element would best be called an open-minded skepticism that is expressed by a questioning attitude. We must step back, and we must question all we see, feel and think – it is by this we are engaged.

When you have developed this skill, this position and poise, you are there – right where you need to be. You have, however, reached no destination with this act, you have just begun a journey, and have taken but a single step. Your trip will never begin without this step. I must emphasize this – when you step back and question reality, you have only just begun, really ONLY JUST BEGUN, but this is a priceless and precious event.

It is with great value that you will always look back upon this moment of beginning. It will always shine like a light in your heart and mind, and of all the big events in your life, this one will shine most brightly, for here is when you have claimed your independence, individuality and informability.

This is where you stand as a child in awe of all that is, and it is now you can begin to learn. You stand open to higher and greater teachings, for you are humbled now. You are perfectly human, natural, and suddenly more – you are connected. You are Awakening.

Due to the way things unfold in a gradual way in our lives, the cryptic nature of this topic  becomes evident. This I have discussed before, both online and in print, but will make brief mention of it in a different way here. Things are not this way because “spirit” is such a mysterious thing (which it is), and neither I nor the Universe has any intention of limiting your knowledge or experience, and so you must know there are no secrets. There will no longer be just a few special people who “deserve” to know things that others don’t. Knowledge cannot be a commodity any longer, and so all will be revealed.

But as  an example – A professor of mathematics cannot teach his calculus students the details and nuances of physics. This is not because s/he is unable, and not because his students don’t deserve to know, and it is not because the teacher is any better than his students, for the teacher is the student. It is only because certain foundational qualities must be grasped in the development of any craft, and the fact that these foundations must be built for the building to continue upward.

At this moment, I will indicate this much – in your “beginning”, in your becoming a questioning observer, you have begun your prerequisite work, though it should be considered easier than calculus (of course, this could remain to be proven on an individual basis). As any prerequisite work goes, and as it develops, attitudes will change in the activity. Confidence will be gained by experience, and your questioning will change in frequency and detail. Things will broaden and become more general and more fulfilling. Details matter less because your questions are being answered.

Now, just because your questions about the world lessen doesn’t mean you know more, nor does it mean your spiritual pursuits and desires lose their importance – you will not become jaded. The time you used to spend on questioning becomes time spent on enhanced experiencing, and this will never end.

So,  for  now,    enlargen  yourself  through  study  and  meditation,    step  back,    question,  and   the   world   shall   be   yours.
