A View from Above – Ch. 2 (Zendor the Barbarian Vol. II*)

A View from Above

evolution-150x150The music of the spheres was the most beautiful ever produced, inspiring the entire population beyond anything they had ever imagined to date. No one knew where it came from, yet they had lived with such bliss and surrender there was no need for anything.

There was no tactile or sensory experience, though, only the feeling of the sensations of vibration; the euphoric sounds of creation – a oneness beyond all description.

Everyone was excited by the sound of this magnificent display of frequency and tones from this Angel of Music, the Most High of the One. This Bearer of Light was celebrating the evo-leap all of them had all been expecting; the journey of lifetimes about to begin.

They had been feeling the new sensation for a while, growing steadily for some time. It was time to experience their creation.

They were able to experience a wide range of frequency and produce tones that, when combined, sounded like a symphony of thousands. This music was different, though. The tones went beyond the accustomed range and heighten their consciousness to a new level they had never experienced. They began to spiral inward and after some time, realized how far away from the One they had journeyed.

A change was happening at the very depths of the pure consciousness within every living thing, now. A conversation was imminent, but no one was sure when it would take place or who would initiate it. Then right on queue, the conversation ignited everywhere, breaching the boundaries of self-imposed exile.

It was rumored that the council had considered advancing to a new level of experience. In this place there was no concern for past or future because of the sense of presence.

Their experience lacked a certain set of sensations, though they weren’t aware of it just yet. The newness of this shift in awareness was just beginning to expand within. It was hoped it would reach the surface soon.

So the conversation happened; One shared that it was time to advance the shores of consciousness to a new place. The steadfast determination of the composer empowered her willingness to sacrifice everything in order to serve All That Is.

She was the best at her craft, allowing the perfect flow to manifest. She was offered an opportunity to help lead those willing to follow to a completely new type of experience.

The excitement this generated within the population literally affected everyone. None was immune to this sensation, even though the journey wasn’t for everyone. The inner and outer spin of the polarized points began to draw others into form, with pitch and tone descending to unknown levels.

This place was different than any other, far removed from the consciousness of nearly every other race of beings because there were no filters on the sharing of information. Thoughts were consistently gracious and supported the thoughtmospheric conditions of freedom as one.

The One was like a primordial soup of consciousness, where all thoughts resided yet were only made available to all once it was reflected by an individuated being. The exchange program was exquisitely designed.

Now when the thought of a shift rippled through the collective, many were drawn to explore the possibility felt deeply within the frequency. The anticipation grew to unimaginable levels and everyone felt like something was going to pop at any moment, yet the flow of the motion already circulating amongst the population was unimpeded, a rush of mobius operandi.

Everyone benefitted from the rise in energy, though, as new thoughtforms were being generated nearly without effort and the universe expanded magnificently.

When the word finally got out that a new vibe had unleashed the creative drive again, the One opened the dialog about differentiation within the holistic systems they were considering. Trust me, the conversation wasn’t as dry, but I had to explain it somehow.

It was like the light had been turned on to reveal an unimaginably beautiful scene that created such a sense of awe so deep that this complete thoughtform was embraced without hesitation. It was the ultimate universal vorticular spin-doctoring that really set the stage.

Everyone had a contribution; a part, a role and a responsibility that engaged their very essence with desire for participation. In order for the plan to work, serious thought had to go into the various components. Quite Sirius it was…

The One already had the plan in mind, but the details had to be shared with the rest of the population so that everyone would be on the same page. The orchestra needed tuning.

This took considerable effort as each of the details encompassed an enormous amount of planning, even though there was awareness that this process would begin a completely new experience for everyone. The condensation would pass through many levels to be integrated later.

No one had embarked on such a journey since the beginning, which none save a few even remembered, so even with intricately woven details in place, the evolution of the plan would be driven by the consciousness of each new world, an order specific to the the planetary purpose.

When the concept of ‘worlds’ was introduced, the flow of information to be transferred from the One to the Many was enormous. The anticipation grew from the increased flow of light as the details of the process were revealed.

Talk about a vortex of love.

In order for the process to be engaged, there were many levels of understanding to be disbursed. The various levels were determined by the variety of frequencies and tones necessary to support the plan, like threads in tapestry.

After all, those chosen to perform the most intricate parts of the plan would leave this existence not knowing when they would return.

Even though their present state encompassed a vastness incomprehensible to human minds now, the plan was to learn how to create and enjoy other worlds of existence.

Several of the original Council of the One were involved in the atomic and etheric measures for creating forms to house consciousness, beginning with creating the environments for those forms to develop naturally. System checks were built in as safe guards for wandering vibrations.

The One understood that for this to work, their creation would use their understanding of music and vibration to create a momentum that would allow the consciousness to condense into various forms as threads within the tapestry in process.

They started with galaxies and gradually worked their way down the scale of tones to create solar systems and planets. It was determined that the progress would be driven by cycles, like stanzas in the music that was their life to date.

As they all learned how to achieve their directives from the Council of One, it became evident that these new creations began to give their consciousness definition. This ‘definition’ went from a universe through galaxies, then solar systems and finally to forms that could inhabit them. Each had a consciousness the other would learn about through their natural evolution.

This was a very precise process, requiring nearly an infinite amount of possibility yet having one goal – the ability to discover and explore their creation from a finite perspective. They had been living in an infinite environment.

They all knew that once any of them became finite there would be a necessary separation from their experience of the infinite. Such was the nature of this process that started when they became aware.

Even the One had a hard time relating the understanding of how they came to be since it had happened as a result of evolution as well.

To suddenly become aware of One, even as the One, was an evo-leap from the previous state of nothingness where no differentiation occurred. Such was the nature of creation and the process of awareness.

The details are what begin the process of condensation, especially when consciousness becomes a highly dexterous form. The intricacies of understanding the return trip home are woven into the self-discovery process in layers, consistent with the frequency ranges that precipitate form.

The complete range from light to material covered twelve layers around Earth, each with a structure of consciousness that allowed a complete experience associated with the frequency scale. Each layer has its own symphony, but when heard across the spectrum from the lower end, it has a nice ring to it. The Hindus call it the ‘sound current,’ the sound of all creation as ONE.

Each tone became twelve across the spectrum until reaching densest of forms, a combination of minerals and fluids designed to evolve along with capacity to complete the circuit home. Still within that form was the point of creator consciousness that surround the last tone, the Void.

Since time was not material, natural cycles were built into the structure of the form. These cycles were designed to ignite the layers of consciousness within the system, a spark to move the process along with style and grace.

As the form, fit and function of each was discovered, the entire civilization would grow to a new level of harmony. The One knew it would not be until they all learned about purpose, the ability to return home, that the notion of oneness would arise. It would more than likely reflect poorly in their early development.

The early worlds and their populations had less of a challenge because they were all one race. Each race began to differentiate over time and, as their psychospiritual and material technology developed in symbiosis, they were able to travel in various dimensions and material forms.

Interstellar travel was not accessible until the understanding of universal order and structure allowed the planetary civilization to manage resources and weather appropriately. The science was part of understanding vorticular forces.

Although the messengers between dimensions or octaves of frequencies were able to seed concepts and ideas when certain levels of consciousness evolved, the veils were kept thin in order to qualify the individual’s evolution.

In the early stages it was learned that when consciousness arose too quickly, the sudden bursts of light often caused spontaneous combustion of not only the forms, but the spheres the forms inhabited. The events always coincided with the cyclical patterns the Council implemented at the beginning, so the adjustments were a constant conversation for them.

Each cycle brought each dimension closer to full alignment with the highway home, the universal order as proposed and understood by demonstration. The self-actualizing and self-realization of life forms learn embracing the One.

By the time humans came into the picture, the myths of the creation story got confused with the cycles of the sun, light and darkness. It was known by each preceding dimension that in such finite forms the access to infinite consciousness, from where they came, would be severely diminished for some cycles, yet there would be representatives able to nurture the evo-leapers.

The magnificently mobile forms were great for getting around on the surface of the planet, but they were not able to contain any thoughtforms beyond their survival at first. In time they would learn not only of their capacity for differentiation on the surface, but of their forms throughout the realms as part of the process of returning home.

The capacity of the Council to keep track of all the perturbations within the structure of the plan was sublimely consistent with the orchestration of the music. Each frequency was monitored and adjusted according to the master plan of the One. When the frequency was first heard by the finite forms, it was only a ringing in their ears.

Only through disciplined listening, which didn’t come for some time, were the forms able to begin to hear their individual tones. The listening took the longest to develop because there was another world to integrate, one with challenges that kept the consciousness focused outside of the body.

As the listening deepened, worlds evolved.

In the beginning there was only one view, infinitely inward and infinitely outward. When the finite forms developed, their vision was divided and the outer view took precedence until the consciousness began to understand trust.

The simple focus of the finite consciousness was to learn about its environment and how to integrate with it in harmony.

Along the way, though, there would need to be signposts or validation points for the ordering. So many points of view that each one needs a logic path that leads to the reunification of them all.

Initially there would be a noticeable increase in information looking at the same theory of everything from different points of view. Just like divisions of labor on this project, there are also divisions of thought and experience.

The challenge for the finite bodies and minds will be to step out of their specific point of view and engage others. Circular and spherical thinking expand the linear path to incorporate a multidimensional reality, nonlinear quantum entanglement. Finite beings come full circle with their infinite consciousness.

The methodology for the process was developed long before the experience; many obstacles purposely put in the way to get the finite beings to question their own nature. It was well known that the most challenging transitions would be from dualistic thinking back to the view of One.

Because of the focus on the outer realities, through the sight, the inner realities would go unnoticed until the finites begin to question their sensory capacity. Feely safe and secure made a difference too, and that was a challenge for many. Certain experiences would cause them to question the nature of their experience and its congruence with their concept of creation, latent within.

On Earth, for example, there would be mass confusion regarding the natural cycles and the nature of the personalities toward domination of their environment. The understanding of how they came to be would be overshadowed by the concept of dark and light being confused for some kind of war in the heavens and translated into a dualistic drama saga.

Lucifer, the Most High Angel chosen to lead the way in to finite forms, would be hidden from true view for millennia. Misunderstandings would lead to massive miscommunication and creation of unnecessary belief systems that controlled thought through maligned intention.

Even after the roadmap for the return trip home was delivered on numerous occasions there was a confabulation of truth.  The memory was still filtered through faulty belief systems. Physical examples of rising above the constraints of this perceived birth-death cycle were provided on many occasions.

But it was misinterpreted because it threatened the outer awareness of the population in most cases. A few were able to step aside from the dualistic belief systems and, through much effort and turmoil, turn the focus back toward the One.

What often happens in planetary civilizations is that the One gets separated into many threads, each being spun into different stories to the detriment of the rest. Finite beings are like that. They tend to separate for a while, even though they come from the same family origins.

This is the nature of the process of incarnation, conscious condensation to such a degree that the original thread of consciousness from the One is so thin it goes unrecognized until the physical challenges are mitigated. Survival becomes a non-issue and exploration begins as a result of feeling disturbance within.

Now because of the growing individuality in many finite beings, there is a need for definition. Finite beings often become obsessive with compartmentalization, the onset of advancing consciousness and self-aggrandizement. They separate and dominate their environments to protect some unknown secret of life.

In the realms of frequency and vibration, where they all came from, there was no need for any type of compartmentalization because the sensations all flowed together in harmony.

Through the process of condensation the perception of duality, inner and outer realities, developed as part of unfolding plan. As awareness grew in the finite beings’ consciousness, the longing for reunion developed.

The One knew that various threads would appear to be separate until such a time when several points of view would shift simultaneously. As if by magic, the awareness of a few would begin to recognize the possibility of all things being connected once again, and facilitate it.

Although the focus and language of each would continue to appear separative, the notion of a singularity would emerge across many fields of study. Finite beings would begin to access the One Mind directly again, promoting the possibility to the population in various ways.

The One’s sense of humor would begin to emerge as the urge to merge increased.

Eventually, as with all planetary civilization development protocols, the recognition of the singularity from seemingly divergent areas of consciousness would begin to change the activities of the finite beings.

What once was seen as necessary for the growth and prosperity of a few transforms into a unified front for the sustainability of the planet and survival of the population, a new world order emerges as an act of evolution.

This growth in awareness happens throughout the solar systems and planetary civilizations across the galaxy. They all reach a place of understanding the One and the need for reunification… One in Many.

Zendor was dispatched to Earth from the Council to initiate a self-reflective process in answer to the longing for a return to harmony.

The universal laws of creation began with the expansion of consciousness, preceded with the condensation of consciousness and then return to the understanding of the cycle.

Certain understanding evolves as the process continues and consciousness diversifies into finite recognition and transportation.

Once the bridges are under construction, the extended family begins to appear. The short-sighted historical view of each planetary society is exposed during the process of the galactic reunion. It’s the best party you’ll ever attend.

The One’s view is necessarily expressed throughout the various aspects of the development of the planetary civilization and, despite the apparent conflicts within the seemingly opposing views, surfaces as the purposeful actions toward establishing harmony among people and planet.

It was proposed that One would become present in some individuals who become aware of this possibility and their collective efforts would eventually unite to express a viable operation of planetary administration that mirrors the One as a holistic system for continued development of the civilization’s progress.

The development of such a system is resident in the multidimensional genetic material, yet not until certain revelations occur would the concept be open for discussion amongst the masses. Early adopters and innovators would also experience the resistance of those less experiential or thoughtfully considerate of such notions.

The challenge would be for those individuals to reach consensus beyond the messianic complex associated with early recognition of the One through inner exploration. One is present in Many, so they have to learn to play together.

Planetary systems engaging the self-awareness or personal development stage, by their nature, must go through the process of awakening to the One across a wide variety of frameworks instituted by those who perceived a need for unification. The natural vorticular physics reveal the mobius operandi as a pulse, in and out.

Many stories would evolve that echo this understanding, but because of the narrowly focused outer experience of senses needing satiation, the unification itself would have extremely divergent results.

Not until the mental perturbations would be seen as opportunities for unification could the process evolve. Chaos is crafted into order through the interactions of cosmic comedians, festival facilitators and possibilities coagulators. Imagine your worst nightmare turning into your best party experience in a heartbeat.

 

* Zendor the Barbarian is a fictional book about the quest for identity.

Are we really one?

Are we really one?

Is this a question we ask in our daily deliberations? If we do, what do our answers reflect? How do we respond in our thoughts and actions on a moment to moment basis?

Amidst the daily travails of tending to our relationships on personal and professional levels, the question might never arise. Some years ago, nearly 36 now, I had a near death experience that changed the way I viewed life and set me firmly on the path of inquiry. I became and eduholic in the trust sense, I dug deep within me to bring out the knowledge we are supposed to have access to according to everything I’ve read and studied. Have you found the latter to be true as well?

The more I questioned, the more fun life became and opportunities to explore what I could do continued to knock on my door. I excelled in school and sports when I was young and coagulated possibilities across a number of industries as I continued to develop skills. My early marriage failed, though, and hardened my heart toward money as a result. Twenty three years after the divorce and I’m finally recognizing just how deeply wounded I was, heal myself, and creatively open to ascend from the pit. Honestly, I would not have grown to know the secrets of relationship had I healed earlier.

So, back to the question: Are we really one?

To me, because I am an assimilation of my experiences, I hear that question from a different place than most. Beyond the profound personal and professional relationships I’ve developed over the years, there has been a part of me that has remained an observer. I had a recent experience that might make that a little clearer.

On the morning of Good Friday last, seems so fitting now, I was breaking up the lox to add to the eggs and then pour into the sauteed onions simmering on the stove. I was enjoying the moment when suddenly I felt a wave of depression so deep that it caught all of my attention. I mused for a moment, wondering what the heck that was all about. I turned to the stove to pour the mixture into the skillet and noticed that my body was beginning to go limp. I could feel it slipping away and was completely conscious of it, like we were about to separate.

I called for Robin (I knew I was going to head for the bed and our breakfast needed tending) and headed for the bedroom. I was just able to get to the bed and sprawl upon it. I could hear perfectly and was able to speak as well, yet the rest of my body wasn’t cooperating, nor did I particularly want it to at the time. I was rather enjoying the sensation as I was still fully conscious and not afraid of anything.

As I lay there while Robin was tending to breakfast, my eyes were closed. In my field of sight, I noticed a fuzzy thin circle of light that was pulsing in and out, smaller to larger from a ball of light in the center to the circle that took up about 80% of my screen. I watched it for a number of cycles, checking my breathing rate compared to it (different) and feeling my heart beat as I watched. It was really pretty relaxing and when you’ve lost the need to control your body, it was quite freeing to say the least.

I can only assume that, because of the waves of cosmic energy we’re encountering as we move further into the Photon Belt, we can avail ourselves as open-hearted humans seeking to know more about how to be spiritual; connected to everything in ways we are only beginning to experience. There are myriads of folks around the planet who have congruent views and mobius operandi of sorts. I checked in to see if others had similar experiences that day and, oddly enough, many did. Some even experienced their ‘wave’ at the same time. Interesting….

How did we arrive at being available, let alone aware, of this type of possibility? We began tracing the origins of religion to determine where the incongruous or missing data was located. Certainly what we have today is far from the root of the word ‘religion’ – reunion with God. Isn’t that ‘oneness,’ though? A reunion with God? How does that work?

Since my upbringing was Christian, I’ll proffer the findings that led to an interesting conclusion. How were we created? Before Adam and Eve was Adam and Lilith. The latter was a story of equality; created from the same material, at the same time and with equal power. So that cleared the whole patriarchal nonsense up. Constantine did a great job, uniting religion and politics with harsh punishment for those who didn’t follow the faith. Most of our current data is skewed on purpose, leading us astray rather than home.

Then there was the question of Satan. Where did that come from? A considerable amount of research and time showed that the Greek ‘thetan’ was the culprit. It means ‘thinker.’ So our adversary is our mind. Now THAT makes sense. Many years later I had a conversation with Jesus (yes, it’s possible) and he verified that he fought with his mind and not some external tempter. His battle and fears are the same as mine, not being quiet enough to hear well and miss the call for fulfilling my divine mission here on Earth.

So what was that all about? Jesus was different. He demonstrated the connection with the divine and encouraged others to do so as well. He called attention to any lack of integrity, liability, limitation or excuse for limiting their relationship with life and love. Ultimately, he led the way for us to understand that death is not inevitable and that we truly can transcend it just as he did, such as his words to Thomas, “Don’t ye know that ye are god as I am god?” I think that qualifies as oneness, eh?

Now that led me to wondering about Lucifer. According to the records, he was the Most High Angel of Light and Music. Knowing the parameters of quality contained in light and music, there seems little to on likelihood that one of that status would abandon their post. I learned that ‘condensed’ was used in place of ‘fallen’ in some of the ancient texts. Wow, the light went off. Every pun intended there. Lucifer led us into form through condensing our celestial consciousness into these bodies. It has been so long ago that no one remembers.

However, Jesus example of taking us back home – returning to the Father – makes wonderful sense when you look at the ‘cycle’ of incarnation and ascension. No doubt it could take many lifetimes for a consciousness to regain the connections to the finer vibrations after being so dense as a carbon-based life-form. In case that raised an eyebrow, 666 is the atomic number… then number of man, revealed through science. Could be arguable, but you’ve got to admit it all makes sense from a perspective of ONE.

Individuality is not threatened by this perspective at all. In fact, it is encourage through free will, yet there are apparently some blueprints on the soul level that manage the operation of each. Astrology gives us a hint of our potential and provides us with parameters that most closely fit our character and personality in alignment with the stars. Since we come from the stars, stardust, it might make sense to have a working knowledge or your arrangement. Even without it, you can notice how you’ve developed knowledge, skill sets and vocational aptitude over time. If you hate your job, then you probably aren’t aligned with your chart. If you love what you are doing, then the opposite is most likely.

What about business, though? How does that work? Most recently, the International Standards Organization came out with the ISO 26000 standards for social responsibility. The more businesses, companies and corporations can align their behavior with these standards, the better chance we have of creating a new world order of harmony among people and planet and creating harmony from the chaos.

Consciousness Drives the Universe

Consciousness Drives the Universe


So what I hear being a point of perspection in this presentation is the suspension of belief systems for experience systems. Where experience systems are not available, then one might consider anchoring in their thoughtmosphere the knowing …of divine will, universal law or cosmic consciousness that is indeed self-organizing by design. Humans only go so far in their quest for understanding what that self-organization reveals.

When we allow that design to emerge in our consciousness, there seems to be a more resilient experience of ‘now.’ One might even say it is a Newly Ordered World based on following the precepts of the great teachers… from the Void, the Quiet, the Silence, the Stillness comes the Voice of Being. The most challenging thing for humans appears to be developing their ability to simply be quiet, observant without bias.

I think it was agent K who said, “A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it. Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you’ll know tomorrow.”

Humans, myself included, often tend to have a skewed view of the nature of reality and, instead of seeking to learn the truth of it, opt for attempting to rearrange belief systems to fit the picture we think we are getting. There is another part of our being that resides within the fabric of creation, its singular thread as a soular blueprint threaded into the Matrix of universe order. It is beyond the subjective, the participant and even the observer…. it is ONE and yet many.

It seems the social organism, the collective thoughtmosphere, thrives on chaos and mental perturbations that drive the fear-based systems most people engage, even those who say they promote the opposite. In quantum terms, ANY focus (feelings, thoughts, words) offers attention and energy to the target. Yet, those who remain free are often deemed ‘callous’ or ‘insensitive’ by the social organism. Seems an example of cognitive dissonance, but then my awareness is also affected by the swirl of emotion felt within.

Now there is another group folks who have been in direct contact through inner experiences, often so real the dimensional shift is virtually unnoticeable, who have been silent for a long time. Heck, look at what they do to people who question authority still. Most folks rarely have the opportunity to converse with others about their experiences, so when it does happen they sound incredulous and emotionally out of control. I spent several days at the IUFOC engaging others in conversation to see if there is an openness to the conversation beyond the phenomena. I didn’t find much, even with abductees. However, there were others, like me, who were wisely waiting for conversations to evolve.

What I’ve found is that the mind of man can produce incredible and valiant reasons for whatever it chooses to do in the moment, including playing the ‘control’ game to perfection. I don’t think pointing fingers is conducive to growth. People have done the best they could with the knowledge they were given. Few have had such horrific lives that they cannot fathom harmony among people and planet. We’ve simply not had the focus of attention on the subject. Is it possible?

Allowing the emergence of harmony within one’s experience is a discipline, a practice, that requires a certain ability to observe without projection. Suspending whatever belief system that qualifies the observation is the goal. Until that happens, the inner voice can only be silent. Once it does, the door to exploring consciousness opens wide and we learn to ask better questions about how it works.

I’ll leave you with the notion that perhaps the Trinity we find in religions, in the micro-environment, shows up as the proton, electron and neutron. The ‘space’ between the particles is the consciousness that defines their order in the material world. If we think and therefore we are, what can we become with effort? Perhaps dropping the notion that we are manipulated in any way and choosing how to be is prudent.

Cosmic Conundrum: Who Am I?

CosmicConundrum-21st-KindleAuthor Bruce ‘Zen’ Benefiel offers a healthy dose of spiritual wisdom for an “out-of-this-world” reader experience. Some dynamics which make this book a helpful guide are the author’s out-of-body experiences, his education and unique intelligence, combined with (but not limited to) an aptitude for research, diverse content synthesis and organization, complete with workbook opportunities for reflection on the provided material.

Zen embraces psychological, scientific, intuitive and mystical explanations, offering practical exercises for meditation, releasing emotional blockages, mentorship, deepening the experience of “flow,” and more. Where relevant, Zen gives simple and effective definitions of spiritual terms for comprehension, and methodical processes for readers to achieve similar results with the suggested exercises. The author’s knowledge of mental-emotional transformational methodologies makes for well-explored and deeply penetrating lessons on the self-help topics.

Woven by the common thread of his mystical experiences, Zen continually provides insightful logic regarding the ultimately inevitable connections among science and spirituality, connecting within, and galactic citizenry. Meaningful personal stories from the author’s physical life experience are steeped in wisdom. That said; the author’s emotional vulnerability is a great asset to humanizing the mystical experiences he lives out.

Zen’s authentic sharing creates a good foundation for us (the readers) to contemplate and realize the unique reality to which we have embraced and have been exposed. The book reveals compelling evidence that we can each go beyond our normal waking consciousness to connect in higher and finer ways. The material provided ties into an overall cosmic picture, complex enough to stretch our ideas of reality and cosmic responsibility while, at the same time, practical enough to not lose accessibility in the lessons offered.

Ethereal experiences are occasionally scoffed at due to popular misconceptions of an ethereal person’s resulting incongruence with normal reality (aka, “airy-fairy”). However, sound reasoning and pragmatic advice ensure that readers like us can learn from the offerings even if we aren’t able to relate the material in its entirety. For example, Zen offers practical guidance on the most basic and often overlooked necessity of balancing and resolving our emotions. Since such healthy (and practical) behaviors aren’t yet common sense for mankind, we could clearly argue that not only is a person’s reality highly relative to the beholder, but reality is also highly relative to how many people are beholding it. In other words, common sense is relative to what a group considers common. Even then, a high commonality doesn’t necessarily indicate truth.

The book finishes with a long anticipated, full-blown explanation of the author’s involvement with the Ashtar Command and galactic citizenry at large. It completes with thought-provoking inquiries that are artfully designed, not to coerce, but to make the reader ponder their own spiritual and galactic responsibilities. At minimum, the existing platform from which the author invites the reader to make positive considerations for spiritual living is a love-based one. If you are a fan of the Ashtar Command and the Celestial Alliances, you’ll like this book even better. Regardless of what you believe or experience, this versatile book can be of benefit to you.

Discovering Our Sunship?

celest-150x150A sun is still a mystery of spiritual and physical presence, an enigma in the intelligent design scenario. Three suns – thrice the mystery. An a physical level, hydrogen and helium are at work. Hydrogen is the only element bereft of electrons. Just a side note btw… Carbon’s atomic arrangement: 666 (hint.. hint)

The Great Central Sun is a ubiquitous reference in esoteric philosophy. Is our central sun actually three suns? In the summer of 1989, while learning a technique developed by William Swygaard (sp) in the 1950s, I was privileged to enjoy some interesting explorations in the dynamics of human consciousness. Swygaard had written a book describing two techniques for exploring the depths of our psychospiritual composition.

The two techniques are called Multi-level Awareness and Multi-plane Awareness and his book was originally one of two covers and no back, meaning the two were in one, much like ‘Doors of Perception’ and ‘Heaven and Hell’ by Aldous Huxley. These processes, although facilitated by a trained guide, allowed deeper individual experiences to evolve within the framework of the process.

By this I mean only vague prompts were given to direct the consciousness in a particular direction, based on the responses given in answer to the questions of the facilitator. The experience was totally spontaneous from the individual’s perspective from that point onward, allowing a freer exploration of the worlds within. The purpose of the facilitator was more as a prompter and recorder; to maintain a verbal link with the experiencer so that reflections could be made afterward. In this way there was some record for reviewing for the experiencer.

This was definitely a metaphysical experience, yet it seems to correlate to much of the scientific research and referencing of the ‘Holographic Universe’ of Michael Talbot’s discovery and sharing. In fact, this paradigm has been present in several physicist’s and scientist’s exploration and revelatory considerations.

Among them [paradigm shifters] are Alain Aspect, David Bohm, Karl Pribham, and Karl Lashley. Complexologists at the Sante Fe Institute have created yet another theory that the Universe actually seeks to replicate itself, based on their study of the math, physics, and science surrounding cosmology, quantum environments, and thermodynamics to name a few.

Striving to understand how our universe works leads us to better understand how the human enigma works in its interaction and living amongst the stars. Apparently instantaneous ‘faster than light’ communication between individuals, as well as brain cells, is a reality and violates the long-held notion that Einstein fostered: no communication can travel faster than the speed of light.

The information age, along with scientific exploration made possible through discovery and development of new paradigms and technology, brings with it the ability of man to question everything he/she has learned about humans to date. This includes being able to cross-reference, if you will, the scientific and spiritual manifestos of our history on planet Earth. So let me take you on a little journey. You don’t have to believe it was real, although I will do my best to relate it objectively.

On this particular afternoon, I was in process of preparing for one of these multi-level awareness journeys. I began by doing some deep breathing relaxation to prepare for the process. I was feeling my body and mind relax when all of a sudden, Zephyr, a guide I’d known since my late teens, showed up and gave me that look. You know the one, where you know you are about to have something very profound happen and you let go of anything else on your mind. So it was. He simply motioned with his arm and said, “Come.” And so I did.

I exited my body with such ease that I hardly felt the departure. Now the interesting thing is that by practicing this technique, I had the ability to describe what I was seeing and hearing along the way. As soon as Zephyr showed up, I was communicating my experience to the would be facilitator, who was now about to tested in their ability to respond in a much different way. I’m sure it had to have been pretty weird sitting in the chair next to me that day! I had to explain who Zephyr was later, so let me do so now.

I’d met Zephyr while studying metaphysics with a small group of explorers in college in my late teens. We all read many books as well and I was in process of reading Carlos Castaneda’s works. I think I was on Journey to Ixtlan at the time. I remember one of the consistent threads of other spiritual works being the existence of spirit guides or allies, as he called them. I had inquired within, through prayer, regarding the existence of and ability to communicate with a guide or ally or guardian angel if you will that was ‘assigned’ to me.

During a meditation one afternoon about a week later the name Zephyr and a face of an Indian appeared in my mind instantaneously. He appeared as an ancient Indian, with eyes so deep and simultaneously cold and warm, peering into my depths of my soul, yet with respect of my being.

I was able to do some research later, assisted by a friend that was an adept at automatic writing, and found that his incarnation was over 20,000 years ago in what is now the Southwest US. I’ve had numerous occasions to journey with him since. If you’ve had similar experiences you can relate. If you haven’t, well just consider it a great story.

This was a bit different because there was now a witness to record my experience as I related it. As I exited my body, he became a sphere of light with his face as the only feature. I first noticed his profile, with that large Indian nose… rather reminiscent of Jimmy Durante. I found it a bit humorous and told him so. Nothing can be hidden in those realms as even the fleeting thoughts are as apparent as turning a light on in a darkened room. So as I was entertaining myself at his expense he turned and faced me with that look again.

I asked him where we were going and he only responded that I would find out shortly. He began asking questions of my spiritual path to date and what I’d learned since the last time we journeyed. I could see faintly the points of light, elongated, as we were whizzing by at an incredible speed. I suppose the only reference would be the speed of thought?

According to the Urantia Book, an interesting exploration of the structure of creation, the speed of thought is approximately 841 trillion miles per second. I’ve never seen a reference to the speed of thought anywhere else. Whether or not that is correct we can accept that it is indeed quite fast, much faster than the speed of light.

In answer to my question of direction, Zephyr told me just to wait and see. I probed again and his silence was absolute. I then spoke to him of other things that I had experienced lately and he responded with analysis, some sick humor, and engaged me in some great bantering that left me feeling very humble after having some pride in the depth of understanding I thought I’d been expressing to him. I think we probably all feel that way when our bubbles are burst by our elders, bringing us back to a humble reality.

One of the aspects of the Path is to be so rooted in one’s own knowing as they are expressing it, yet being able instantly to let go of the attachment of its truth in order for further depths of understanding to occur. Sometimes the knowing shifts and must be left behind as merely a stone on the path. At other times, the knowing evolves into a much deeper acknowledgment of ‘what is’ in the conundrum of ‘What is reality?’ This bantering lasted for about eight minutes, according to the facilitator, as the arrival at our destination brought it to an abrupt close.

I suppose that the constant recounting of conversation helped to anchor congruent patterns of thought and holographic reality at that point. Very humbling nonetheless. The discussion also had a profound affect on the facilitator’s life as it verified some inklings he’d been entertaining as possible answers to some of his own questions about the nature of creation and reality as we know it.

I noticed a slowing of momentum and as soon as I did, I felt an abrupt halt. We had arrived at a solar system that was beautiful beyond belief. If you’ve seen Contact and Jodie Foster’s character as she witness the beauty of space you can imagine the feeling of awe that overcame me then. We had stopped outside the perimeter of the largest orbit of the dozen or so planets that revolved around three huge suns that appeared to be equidistant in the center of this system.

Again, the sight of this brought up the feeling of awe that came from such an indescribably beautiful display, much like the movie ‘Contact,’ only this was nearly a decade before its making. I only had a moment to take in the beauty before I heard a voice that felt like the combination of the suns speaking as one. I listened intently. The sensation was like a river of energy flowing through me. In response to the natural curiosity and questions I must have been thinking, the voice (s) said, “We are not only your forefathers, we are also the forefathers of your solar system.”

I felt such a deep connection to those words and the resonance of truth that I was speechless for a moment. I wish there was a word to describe it. You get the picture… I was blown away. Zephyr said, “Okay, that’s it, time to go.” It took me a moment to regain composure and I began to want to ask some questions. Zephyr cut me off immediately saying, “No questions now, you’ve got all the information you need. You’ll figure it out.” Rats!

I needed some more feedback. My mind needed more information to process. I argued for a few moments and then gave in to the trip back. He never did respond to those direct questions…damn stoic Indian. He was kind enough to offer some things to ponder, though, which gave me much more than I realized at the time.

Once back in the room and relating the journey to fill in the gaps of my description of the scenery, what I found interesting is that each leg of the journey was consistent. According to the facilitator’s watch the journey of going and coming were about 8 minutes long, which was more than just coincidence it seemed. This would indicate that it was indeed a journey that crossed some major distance at the speed of thought or something similar yet to be measured by modern science.

Just how the actual vehicles became ‘real’ or the method of travel was something I didn’t understand as a repeatable process. I suppose, like any form of journeying, it could be practiced and perfected over time. But, I’m not sure Zephyr would be at my beckon call. In a lot of cases, the event is not necessary to repeat as the impact leaves such a profound experience that lifetimes are spent articulating the findings.

I did feel an unusually high resonance with the idea of these suns being the foundation of our Trinity. Just imagine what this could mean to the developmental theories of creation and our scientific explorations into the depths of material structure. I do know this: it was much more that my feeble brain was able to interpret, yet the imagery, voice, and travel were very real.

I’d been on many journeys to date and this was one of the most profound and potentially rewarding in the development of a cognitive model that removes conjecture and superstition regarding the nature of how we got here. To understand the mechanisms of creation from that point requires some intense study of the internal structure of creation. Metaphysics seeks to explain this in my opinion.

Quantum physics and complexologists are moving closer to explaining the next levels of consciousness in mathematical terms that result in patterns encountered in inner space. Methinks we are on the verge of a Cosmic Evolution. Blessings…

The Carbon Atom Signficance

Carbon_02-300x141Carbon Atom Significance

Atomic theory is an ancient science, contrary to what you might think. The earliest record of it can be found in Vedic texts from India which are many thousands of years old. Legend has it that the Vedic civilization was highly advanced. The sages that oversaw its development, through their mystic insight and deep meditation, discovered the ancient symbols of spirituality: Aumkara and Swastika. They also discovered many scientific principles that they applied to develop a highly advanced technology.

They gave the atom its Sanskrit name “Anu.” While the technical achievements of this ancient civilization have been forgotten, the archetypal symbols of spirituality have maintained their eminence in our consciousness. Now, thanks to advances in modern atomic theory, the atomic basis of these divine symbols can be appreciated.

Western theories of the atom took shape in the 18th and 19th century. At the beginning of the 19th century, John Dalton theorized that an atom was an indivisible particle of an element. However, after the electron was discovered in 1897, and then the proton several years later, the atom model was revised. In 1909, Ernest Rutherford showed that atoms were mostly empty space, revising the model of an atom to a tight positive nucleus containing the protons and neutrons with electrons around it; by 1913, Danish physicist Neils Bohr envisioned a planetary arrangement in which the electrons orbited the nucleus at different energy levels.

The current way of describing an electron is a model called the charge cloud model/quantum mechanical model/orbital model. This model is based on the idea of Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle, which states that we do not know the precise location or the velocity of any given electron. The model uses indistinct and overlapping “probability clouds” to approximate the position of an electron. Imagine capturing a particle moving at the speed of light.

Where a cloud is dense, the probability of finding an electron in that vicinity is low. In this model, each electron energy level is denoted by numbers that take concentric shells as suggested by the Bohr model because there are overlaps in the ordering of the energy levels. In the case of the carbon atom the electrons occupy four tear drop shaped clouds in a tetrahedron-like arrangement. These clouds represent the areas in which the electrons spend most of their time. They move so rapidly in this zone that they form a cloud rather than a specific flight path.

Recently a number of researchers have suggested that within these clouds exist specific zones that the electrons favor. These zones form a spiral around the surface of each of the tear drop shaped clouds. This new development came into the attention of a great Indian saint and mystic. Disciples were encouraged to develop the principle as it related to the carbon atom.

In deep meditation one of those disciples, who was a chemist, spontaneously realized the true significance of this theory: The electron’s high probability zone formed spiral standing waves around the carbon atom’s nucleus. When this configuration was viewed from certain angles the physicist was surprised to find that the spirals formed recognizable symbols.

In the first view a 3–dimensional Aumkara could be seen. From a different angle that Aumkara became a flat, 2-dimensional Swastika. The Swastika, he concluded, was actually 2-D representation of the 3-D Aumkara. Rotating the model to another angle shows those symbols change into the Greek Alpha and Omega.

At a cosmic level the symbols of Eastern spirituality (Aumkara and Swastika) are literally and only different aspects of the same spiritual truth that is also represented by the symbols of Western spirituality (Alpha and Omega). All people, objects and even energy itself are expressions of the same divinity that so many religions, cultures and philosophies have tried to claim exclusively as their own. The Carbon atom, by containing within it these universal symbols, demonstrates that matter is a manifestation of the same Divine consciousness experienced by the saints and sages of all history. Matter is innately spiritual.

The Universe does not exist separately from the Universal Consciousness; it is a direct expression of it. Living matter, which is carbon based, must have a unique role in this expression. A saint is one who lives in eternal experience of this all pervading divine purpose. All people, objects and even energy itself are expressions of the same divinity. The alpha and omega are traditionally ascribed to Christ. In India the Deity called Ganesha presides over the Swastika and Aumkara.

There are some remarkable similarities between the two: Both deities demonstrate the value of childlike innocence; Ganesha is himself an eternal child famous for his simple wisdom; while Christ, son of god, often exhorted his disciples to “be as little children.” They both are divine children; both conceived immaculately; both divine sons of a holy trinity (Christ is the son of Yahweh and The Holy Spirit/Mary and Ganesha son of Lord Shiva and Mother Parvati).

Are Ganesha and Christ one and the same deity? Each, like their symbols that exist as different aspects of the carbon atom, represents different aspects of the archetypal cosmic child. Thus the distinction between Eastern and Western spirituality, like any division based on race, culture or belief, is no more than ignorance of the true spiritual nature of the universe and all that exists within it.

Knowledge of Reality Magazine 1996-2006.

Recognizing this sameness allows us to be more tolerant of each other and of our challenges in life as we seek comfort, security and love. Compassionate relationships encourage us to grow in the process of self-development. In these relationships we can make mistakes and know we are still going to be accepted and loved no matter what.

Part of what keeps us afraid, angry, ignorant and immobile are the belief systems we grew up with, their affect on our curiosity and the separation from other belief systems that appeared to be contrary. Religion, in its purest form, is the reunion with God, Creator or Great Spirit. It appears that even at the core of our genes, we have signs that lead us back to the holistic view of oneness – being one people.

A Brighter View of the Morning Star?

toilet1-223x300In lieu of the ‘nefarious’ postulations presented all over the Web now… What are we really here to do? Might it be to learn to transcend all the riff raff and learn how to get along as a planetary society? After all, we are technically one planet and one people.. right? Then why do we continue to allow separative practices? A better question might be, “How do we re-direct all this energy toward creating a better world?”

I agree that as long as we continue to focus on that which separates people, we will remain separate. Is that what we truly desire? I find that more than distasteful. I find it [continued focus on separation] appalling and not something I spend time [attention is an investment] on in most of my daily deliberations. However, in order to shift attention away from what comes so easily to many (perceptively negative thoughts and feelings) it is far richer to focus on people, places and things that create a joyful sensation from the relationships, productivity and results of developing harmony among people and planet… one action at a time.

Life can be a series of synchronistic and serendipitous moments when we choose to change [make choices toward unity] at every opportunity. In this, a line from Vanilla Sky comes to mind, “Every moment gives us the opportunity to change the rest of our lives.” A recent zen calendar saying (a gift from my beloved) reminded me of such precious presence/presents…”In the realm of human destiny, the depth of man’s questioning is more important that his answers.” A few days later this one appeared, “If enlightenment is not where you are, where do you look?”

I think it is safe to say that there is an awareness of cosmic consciousness condensed into form.. us. Each one of us has the opportunity to recognize our Origin – and to acknowledge that place of Origin in each other. My signature has reflected this place for several decades. I produced and hosted a television show in the early 90s that reflected this place… How we can share ways to overcome the fears that keep us separate and grow to know the secrets of unity – one plane, one people, one mind. Not that we give up individuality in the process. Quite the opposite – we become who we are as complete individuals, destined to live as contributors to a better world – one that works for everyone.

Some say this kind of thinking is idealist and even unrealistic. Others find the consideration of such a new living awareness to be the crux of the matter as everything that is not in alignment with this consciousness seems to be crumbling in our world as you read these words. Our abstinence in participation and responsible actions that command our leaders and each other to stand up and behave like the adults of spiritual understanding we know we must be continually plague our relationships on the ocean of emotion swirling around us now.

I have no control over what you think and feel. I barely have control over my own swirling emotions, thoughts and actions as I strive for congruence with this new living awareness in my own life. I can only encourage others and help where ever asked. I’ve learned that to attempt to assist when uninvited is like dealing with teenagers who think they know everything. The entanglements exemplify the push/pull of attempts to control others… inappropriately. We need to ask better questions.

Some examples of better questions might be: Why am I here? Who am I really? What am I here to be/do/have? Where do I best belong? How can I best assist and grow? When is the best moment to serve? Will you (Source) show me, with unquestionable impeccability, how to be in the precious present?

Just my two and a half-sense.

Dark Matter… Dark Knight… Shed Light

 Dark Matter… Dark Knight… Shed Light

This video shows scientific proof and logical explanation of how we might ‘see’ our universe from a different perspective, engaging the viagra super active ‘dark side’ of the equation. Einstein predicted such things would occur and now it appears that we have found a new ‘ring’ that isn’t so familiar. Concurrently there are many who seek to balance the world, find a new order that protects and serves humanity. Seems we are caught in duality without a bridge under construction, let alone on the drawing board.

Let’s start off with a premise that we are indeed cosmic consciousness condensed into form. This, of course, is an assumption and only has theoretical, albeit heretical to some, evidence within the exploration of consciousness. So how would we relate to the microcosm within each of us with respect to the macrocosm of Dark Matter and Dark Energy? Is there something somewhere, anywhere, that might give us a clue as to how we can relate and/or live within our own Dark Matter/Energy? It may be simpler than we think.

To understand the paradox of Dark Matter and Dark Energy we can reference the Tao, or even opposing spins of the Swastika in reference to condensing and expanding fields of matter. Dark Matter is inviting structure, creating order from the chaos we experience as gravity or even solar systems, while Dark Energy is inviting expansion, creating chaos we experience as an expanding physical universe. On a more material plane, our planet for instance, we experience a conscious (more often unconscious) ebb and flow of attraction and separation through religion and/or political power structures.

The consideration I’m introducing  is based on John Gardner’s premise in Biocosm, where he posits that the Universe (Creation) likes to replicate itself and is constantly seeking to create little universes. The premise, I find, resembles the notion presented in spiritual texts that we are ‘sons and daughters of God,’ but it is never considered that eventually we do grow up. It is too pompous or preposterous to even conceive that we might be more than we’ve been willing to believe, let alone accept. Yet, it seems that we’ve been informed of our potential from those very ones we hold as sacred teachers. It spans the gamut of religious sects and spiritual paths. For some reason we still create separation and war, though. Rarely do we deal with a discoverable truth.

I realize that the consideration that we are all part of a singular creation made up of the same particles of matter pushes the boundaries of consideration for a spiritual/material connection we may experience as we ‘live’ in some kind of conscious expression. Whether that expression seeks harmony or dissonance is the critical question now, isn’t it? The paradox of questioning the truth is that it is offensive to those who think they now the truth or have the market on it through effective advertising and sales, like what BP and the US Government is doing in the Gulf right now.

This conscious expression can be felt at a distance by some and even demonstrated by an experiment with dowsing rods I’ve witnessed up close.  Some call this an ‘aura.’  It can be measured with distinct differences between past, present and future thoughts and feelings. As you might imagine, past and future are diminished considerably when compared to the measurement of present time. What is really being ‘measured’ by the dowsing rods? Is this ‘dark’ energy? It only means it is invisible to the naked eye, just as the clouds with embedded universes mentioned in the video.

The same ‘energy’ can be felt around those who have personal agendas or professional agendas, either serving themselves, the greater good or both. A ‘presence’ is noted around those who serve beyond personal or professional agendas whereas those who serve with less intentional good often make it up with a louder song and dance routine. How does this apply to Dark Matter or Dark Energy? Without prejudice, the sense of achieving clarity in truth of any situation offers a pronounced sense of order, whether it has been established yet or not. Whereas, blatant denial of facts in an attempt to dissuade chaos or fear-based reactions of the public only serves to create chaos.

In the case of the measurement of ‘auras’ the humans are the embedded features in the dark cloud. We constantly move in these fields of energy and occasionally become aware of them through ‘sensations’ we may or may not understand yet cannot deny that we ‘feel’ them distinctly. Just like the ‘ring’ affect mentioned in the video, we see reflections of refracted light around the dark cloud, a circle of trust if you will. I know this is a stretch, but if we had a mechanism within us to distinguish and then act upon a clearer picture, what change might we affect in the world?

Concurrently in the search for Gamma Rays mentioned in the video to garner better understanding of the ‘darkness’ of space, we also have recent discoveries of Gamma brain waves that are noticeably increased when one is at peak performance or ‘in the zone’ of their activity. As we seek to understand the mysteries of our consciousness and creation, are we not seeking understanding of the mysteries of God? Using ‘God’ as a generic term, I think I recall the invitation across many, if not all, the world’s religious texts, ancient and current. So that we may what? What might we possibly learn?

Love for the Season

ArmsOpen-150x150Love is a home for your soul, a spiritual blueprint which allows us to build a life guided purpose and divine light. Love washes over us like raindrops from heaven bathing us in meaning, purpose and joy. Seek the company of souls adrift and let your love wash over them as doing so will awaken humanity to unimaginable bliss. Love is the karmic whole that enables us to live life in a more conscious way. Love always – Love for the Season

The above was shared on Facebook, Gilles Chamboraire the morning of the winter solstice. So many are sharing their perspectives now. It seems humanity is rising up to meet the new millennium with a different energy, focus and presence than in the past. There could be many reasons for this, all of them good, but it is important that we recognize this time as a momentary reunion – a precious present where we pause for just an instant in the true nature of our being. In that place we are ONE. This is a wonderful short video from some folks down under that can help you go there:

For so many years I’ve felt like a stranger in a strange land because of my personal experience and the challenge of finding others who share similar understanding. I happened to have a near-death experience that gave me a perspective about life that few get the opportunity to experience, let alone share. Even at the risk of misunderstanding and rejection, I’ve continued to share what I’ve learned in hopes that even just a portion of it can be understood and applied in the way we conduct business and personal relationships. Many others are voicing the same feelings and thoughts now as we move further into the new millennium. My faith and hope soars as a result.

The reality of a deeper awareness, an access to worlds unseen by most, has taken a sharp rise over the last decade. The movement of a mindset from superstition and fear-based perspectives is exactly what the spiritual texts all indicate is desired by the ‘consciousness’ of our creators yet we, humans, still regard that which is outside our frame of reference as a threat to our survival. The opposite is true in nearly every important discovery to date, yet our belief systems still override the logic and observable truth right in front of our eyes.

Love is the key to transcending our common problems. It sounds so simple. The actions of love are just as simple.

A New Living Awareness

rockinralfI’m no one special. I was adopted at 6 weeks and had a loving family and upbringing in the Midwest. I’m not sure why, but I’ve had many experiences outside the realms of most religious considerations and certainly outside the realms of psychology and psychiatry to date. I don’t expect the reader to believe anything I say, but test it for yourself as best you can.

Deep questions about my life and living prompted me to offer a prayer to my concept of ‘Creators’ as a teen, which at the time was pretty vast as I knew cosmic consciousness as not only a concept but a deep seated awareness and feeling. My prayer was about knowing truth and being willing to die to know it if necessary. I was in my first year of college, living in the honors dorm at BSU.

The following week I had come back from class, put on Journey’s first album and laid across my bed with my head propped up by the wall and my pillow. As I lay on the bed in silence of mind, just after the verse of a song I heard a voice in my head (I’d actually heard it since I was 6) that asked me if I was willing to die for what I believed in. After I got over the shock of the question I thought about what I believed in enough to die for… Christ or cosmic consciousness was my decision and “Yes” was my answer to the voice.

Instantly I felt a slight tug and was out of body, turning to look at my body lying across my bed and then turning back to look where I was going. I was immediately engulfed by White Light, embraced and surrounded in a feeling of being HOME, the ultimate home. I could think, so I knew I wasn’t ‘dead’ but all I could see was white and I had no tactile sensations. As an impetuous teenager, it got boring quickly and I asked, “Is there more?” There was, but it isn’t necessary to go into here now.

After a brief instructional period I felt a rush of energy and was back in my body taking a deep breath as though I’d been without air for some time. The actual time was about 2 minutes. The experienced and information presented seemed much, much longer. It left an indelible imprint as you might imagine. I’ve made it my life’s mission to fulfill as well as understand, and maybe the two will eventually become one.

That was in 1975, when there was very little written and even fewer people to discuss this with openly. I was lucky my parents had me see a psychiatrist that had some awareness about metaphysics and spiritual awakenings. He advised me to keep my mouth shut because people would not understand me, let alone think I was anywhere close to being sane. Silence was not and is not one of my strong points.

So over the years I researched and studied awareness on deeper levels than most can imagine, let alone experience. I have an intimate awareness and experience of what is being presented as theories in quantum mechanics now, so it is absolutely refreshing to see science and spirituality begin to coagulate in similar understandings. However, because I speak from an awareness rather than theory in most cases, I include many descriptions of events that demonstrate the understanding.

Death is indeed a reality for some, because they believe in it so strongly and have never had cause to question its reality. Folks with trauma-initiated NDEs (near-death experiences) have some greater understanding of the continuation of consciousness beyond the physical body, but still have a tough time believing that one might be able to transcend physical reality with their body.

We hear of the ability to bi-locate and even teleportation, but is it a reality. I’ve had experiences of both, but only the bi-location have I been able to repeat. The teleportation happened as a result of an early morning need to go to the bathroom. It was friend’s home and pitch black at the time. I was conscious enough to open the door and begin to proceed to the bathroom that was on the other side of the house, a good hundred or so paces away with a couple of hallways and turns to negotiate.

I took two steps and ran into a wall where an opening to the living room had been when I went to bed. I felt around for a light switch, found one and flipped it on. I was standing in front of the bathroom door. I have no idea how to explain it, only that it happened. So things way beyond our comprehension at this time are possible and maybe even repeatable if we were able to clear our consciousness of the belief that they are not. My belief didn’t matter at the time… it happened.

Now the concept of death has become a nebulous thought in my life at best. I’ve had several friends and others that have been available for conversations after their passing out of the physical bodies as well. Granted, I don’t make a practice of talking with them a lot, but the opportunities do present themselves. I’ve finally found a woman that isn’t freaked out by the experiences I provide, just by being around me. I have a ‘dead council’ that I call together every few years just to check in with them about ‘progress’ here.

One of the more mischievous strafed her body as he came into the room and sat her up in bed with a hrmmmph, literally. She had been sound asleep and my ‘meetings’ are always done in silence to the naked ear. I asked her what happened and she described feeling like someone had just passed through her body, with no malice intent, but undoubtedly an entity capable of sitting her up. It was then that I told her what I was doing.

Now I also, oddly enough, have a personal testimony of Jesus Christ. He explained to me that there is no Devil, only our mind’s capacity to deceive and respond out of fear. However, you can imagine the grief I get when I share these things, or even hint at their possibility, in Christian environments. I’m so baffled that they will use a book to belittle a living experience of what they so animatedly profess to believe. It kind of reminds me of the oxymoron ‘military intelligence.’ I’ve been told I’m full of Satan and even had some well-intentioned folks show up at my home to tell my wife she needed to leave me as soon as possible. She did, and after many years of struggle she chose to divorce me with prejudice.

Now this was originally about the concept of ‘death’ so let me bring it back into the thread. Unless one has a direct experience of its non-existence it is quite a challenge to wrap your mind around the concept, let alone free your mind enough to move beyond the intellectual constraints of the belief systems that lock you up in it. However, there is a capacity for us to know things beyond this; to know a greater truth that engages choice and free will in a whole new spectrum of experience. I’ve been there my entire life… and very alone in the world.

Imagine if we shifted our consciousness, our focus and attention, onto life-friendly possibilities of connectedness and even harmony and unity among people as a result. Might this new living awareness evolve into a new world order?
