time machine

i can`t state this any more clearly. i have discovered a time machine. one that we can all use. it`s a complex electrochemical device that comes with no instruction manual but for the ideas of those who realise that they are in possession of one.
the device i`m talking about is your mind.
we travel back and forward in time, in our minds, all the time. most of us don`t recognise the journey so much as the effect it has on our emotions. we come back from the trip with reactions in the form of feelings. these feelings create our present moments.
so really what is going on is a constant journey through time, merely touching down in the present for periods and then flying back and forth in what we have learned to call time.
calling this experience time travel is maybe a bit misleading but studies have shown that the brain reacts precisely the same way to remembered feeling than to a feeling experienced due to present events.
the hypothalamus is a structure in the brain that creates chemicals that we experience as emotion. when we remember events, the hypothalamus releases peptides that go into the blood stream and make us feel the same feelings as we felt the first time that we experienced the event. there are thousands of different emotions that we have the potential to experience and there are thousands of peptides that the brain can create to give us these feelings.
are the emotions seperate from the peptides?
the brain can`t tell.
the consciousness can`t tell.
when we go back, in our minds, to a past event and re-experience it our mind cannot tell the difference between the memory and the first time we experienced the event.
we are time travellers.
we also have control over how we remember what it was we remember, we`ve just forgotten how.
it`s my job to remind you.....................
stay tuned.

smile test.

here`s a test to see if you can tell if a smile is genuine or not.
let me know how you did. it`s a lot of fun. the test is made up of 20 short videos of people smiling. you have to figure out which of the people are smiling genuinely.
once i get the results from you, i`ll let you know how the guru did.;-)

a cult.

in the new year i am going to found a new cult. not a cult where a person has to give me all thier possessions and live in a commune on an old farm, or wear orange robes and sing songs and bang drums at the airport, unless they really want to. i`m not into stopping people doing what they want.
the cult that i have in mind is one of happiness. a cult of smiles. a cult of the individual acting out of a sense of wanting to be happy and doing what it takes to create the state of happiness in thier lives.
i believe that happiness is a state that we have to go out and create. i believe we are masters of creating states of consciousness. we create every experience that we feel in our bodies and minds, whether we realise it or not. this is a great responsibility that is rewarded a thousand-fold when we take it on in a purposeful way.
the cult is one of smiles. smiles of our inner self and smiles of our face and body. smiles of ourself and smiles of others as a feedback mechanism. once we are in that loop of smiles then the resonace is extraordiary. it is so strong and pervasive that one smile from a stranger can last all day.
pass it on.
in the cult of smiles i will be the guru. i will wear the white robe, if you like and i will smile because i know that these words are allowing you to smile too and pretty soon that smile will infect the next person that you meet and so on and so on.
i will wear the white robe of smiles as long as you promise to smile sufficiently to trigger the response in others.
i will sit cross-legged on a mat of smiles and smile at you as you read these words............and you will visualise this and smile too.
isn`t my cult nice?
with all the smiles we will make, we will smile forever.
one less asshole in the world.

here`s the antidote. do this at least once an hour. trust me, i`m a doctor. Posted by Picasa


there are many ways of describing chaos. entropy, disorganisation, bureaucracy, hostility, war. however you describe it, it still represents the same thing. an inability for things to go well.
we want things to go right in our lives. we are optimistic about outcomes and we set our sail in the morning toward the far shores of success.
what happens?
we succeed for the most part, but we notice that the more people conspire to organise, administrate and predict and control, the more things become chaotic.
all of the wars are started by organisations, all the strikes, all the unrest, all the poverty, decline and bancrupcy.
all in the name of organisation, administration and control.
why is this true?
i think it`s because all the inspiration, creativity and positive will is a function of one person`s vision, seperate from that of another person`s will and the more that groups of people try to reproduce the single-mindedness of the individual then the chaos emerges.
we have all played the game where we sit in a circle and whisper a sentence in the next person`s ear.
as the whisper goes around the circle each person adds a little something to the meaning of the words as they see fit. this editing, deleting and adding process results in the words emerging out the other end of the chain transformed and totally different from the original.
the bigger the circle of people in the chain the more distorted the message becomes.
this is in a game situation where there is little pressure to do anything but whisper in the next person`s ear.
imagine if there is a situation where the chain is the same but the pressure of a business environment is critical or in a battle or in a conflict situation such as a strike at a car plant.
what kind of distortion, editing, deleting and adding to messages goes on in these environments?
the larger administrations and bureaucracies get the more these distortions of messages become.
what is the answer.
smaller groups and simpler message packets is one answer. letting the pressure off is another.
we live in a society where we want to get it right and we also want to catch the next guy being wrong. this is a highly profitable arrangement for industries such as the judicial system, where they win when someone else loses. the those best suited to working in this kind of industry are those feel good when others feel bad.
where does internal structure come from?
a psychological theorist in the sixties said that people have a voice in thier heads that basically says that we are "useless little shits". this internal voice makes us want to make others feel worse than we do so that the voice wont bother us so much.......until the next time.
i think the desire for "spiritual enlightenment" is a desire to shut the voice off.
you can shut the voice off by telling it to shut the fuck up.
or you can go looking for victims.

regarding smiling, this is a classic case of how not to do it. Posted by Picasa

a clarification.

there have been those who, for whatever reason, have wanted to have religious or theological discussions here. this is not the place for discussions about gamerules. this is a blog about consciousness and man`s interaction with reality in whatever forms it comes.
religion and it`s handmaidens have, for centuries, demanded control and obedience from it`s adherents. this is cult behaviour. it is useful as the companion to government in that it gives rules, regulations and the threat of penalties to those who don`t obey. it keeps the peace.
religion is absolutely and completely nothing to do with spirituality, divinity and metaphysics. those areas are the domain of spirituality, divinity and metaphysics. see how easy that is? the words themselves describe the field they cover.
there are some religious people who have spiritual, divine and metaphysical experiences in spite of the religious rules denying this should happen. this is bound to happen given the divine, spiritual and metaphysical nature of human consciousness. we are all bound to have these things happen to us, in or outside of a church, for the simple reason that we are alive.
we are to know the divine as we open our eyes in the morning, not filtered through the words in a book of any description, but by merely making observations. it`s all divine. it`s all a miracle. and and it`s boundlessly mysterious. i doubt anyone will ever find out what`s going on and live to tell the tale. the best we can hope for is that we learn from experience and fill our hearts with the joy of being alive every chance we can get.......not because we owe anyone anything, but because it just makes sense to choose good feelings......for whatever reason, or for no reason at all.
there`s a new year coming, boys and girls, and i would like to think we could throw some smiles around in the coming months like grenades that will explode in amongst people you`ve never met and they will be hit with the feeling that they should smile too. and thier lives will be forever ruined for anything but another smile.
or we can fuck off back to being miserable.
let me know what you think. those of you who are reading and thinking about things in response to what i`m a line or two in response and let`s get the party going. i dare you to. ;-)

acting within our highest purpose.

would you like to act within your highest purpose?
do you know what it is?
have you acted that way before?
these questions are the challenge to the spirit that we call being alive.
acting out of the highest purpose means that you must ask what the highest purpose in your action is.
each thing of significance that we do has a hierarchy of purpose. i suppose the mundane things we do have a hierarchy too, but for the purposes of our discussion i`m going to focus on significant actions.
significant actions are those things that are acts of responsibility. those things that will have meaningful outcomes that will effect the lives of yourself and of others.
o.k. so now we can see that there are mundane, or trivial acts and there are more important acts that we perform.
the important acts can be taken on in a noncommittal way or with a focussed purpose. the focussed purpose is where our growth lies and the focus sharpens when we choose to see the highest purpose in what we do.
we can choose to sell products for a living. we can sell stereo equipment in a mall and get the highest commisions possible by way of pressure selling to every person who walks through the door or.........we can learn about communication and the passion people have for music and stereo equipment and find a place where those feelings converge and deliver our skills as a salesman in a different way. a way where people come to discover a passionate enjoyment of audio equipment and music. your role then woud be to share felings about these things and find the best products and provide the best service to accompany the purchase for your client.
this process can be applied to any endevour we undertake in our lives, from making dinner to planning a career.
the highest purpose in anything we do is the thing that has the strongest emotional and spiritual value.
working as a real estate agent can be a chase for commisions or it can be a passionate desire to find homes for families to live thier lives. the choice as to how to frame your role in the activity is what dictates the outcome. now.
who would you want working for you, he commision hound or the person involved in finding a new home for you and your family?

the mind/body split.

a favorite of the psychiatric profession is the idea of the mind/body split. a concept that forever gives them permission to create mental disorders at will.
ever wonder where multiple personalities come from?
the psychiatrist`s office.
our minds have thoughts. that`s how we know we are alive. interestingly enough, the resergent interest in yoga and meditation is looking at stopping thoughts. how does one know that we are alive then?
anyway, i digress.
our minds have thoughts and our bodies follow.
does this happen in reverse?
we recieve sensations in our bodies that make us think things but the sensations are due to actions that our minds initiated.
sit quietly with your hands on your thighs and now concentrate on trying to lift your hands.
you can`t do it.
the act of trying is the negation of action and you fail.
now lift your hands.
up they come, naturally and easily.
where is the seperation between the mind and the body here?
there isn`t one.
we picture things in our minds and our bodies comply immediately.
picture a lemon. fresh, cool yellow fruit lifted by hand from the fruit drawer of the refridgerator. you know how it smells and feel the texture of the skin as you take the lemon and place it on a chopping block. take a sharp knife and cut the fruit in half. see the juice run and smell the lemoniness hit your nose.
what happens when you bite the slice of lemon?
does the mind/body split evaporate for a split second for the purposes of this example only form again for future effect?
we create our internal states as one entity of mind and body together. we live our lives in health and in sickness as one device. psychiatry needed to seperate the system in two so that drugs could be given to treat the symptoms of thinking.
the drugs effect the bodies reaction to thoughts but the thoughts remain.
the more persistant the thoughts, the more drugs need to be taken.
the mind is a pretty determined device. it has created all that we have surrounding us. to knock it out with drugs will damage the body long before the mind will switch off.
does that sound like good medicine to you?

the day before christmas.

so here we are, the day before christmas, already hung over from too many trips to the mall and dinners with friends and friends of friends. christ, i don`t usually eat this much in a month.
what`s it all about?
well, it seems to be about consuming at a rapid pace so that more will be produced to consume. i can`t see any other point to it all. we aren`t any happier, or more enlightened, or richer or healthier because of it all. but more stuff has been produced.
an economist friend of mine once said to a room full of people that if everyone just bought stuff everything would be o.k.
he has a point, in a perverse sort of a way. we live in a society based on consumption of material goods. as long as the stores are doing well then we will be happy.
retailers are banking on a good pre-christmas spend for a large portion of thier years income. we are the ones held responsible for this outcome. we are the ones who are trying to reduce our debts on the one hand and on the other we are the ones holding up the economy by buying more than we need. the indiscriminant spending that we do "for the children" is keeping the factories in production for another year.
how the hell did we get to this point?
do i feel guilty because i didn`t do quite enough this year by not buying my children everything they wanted?
when people ask me what the true meaning of christmas is i have to say that it`s to keep the economy going.
thankfully we have 364 days left to celebrate our life.

the secret of the shaman`s spell.

the shaman is a healer, a creator, a destroyer and traveler in time and space to gain insight and knowledge unavailable to the person rooted in the material world. the shaman is a person to be revered and feared at the same time.
he is a man who knows.
we have forgotten how to begin to know what the shaman lives with each day.
that`s why there are so few in existance and even fewer amongst the concrete and glass towers of the city.
when a shaman comes to the city he is as out of place as a lawyer in armani suit would be in the dirt of the jungle. equally powerful in thier palce but equally lost when not.
the secret that the shaman holds is that he can adapt to the new place that he finds himself but reaching out will certainty into the dreamtime and allowing the next thing to happen and knowing with certainty that he will be right.
when the drought hits the land the shaman is asked to make it rain.
the shaman prepares and goes out into dust and sees himself in his dream standing in the downpour. the rain pouring down nd soaking his hair, his clothes and his skin. the rain washes over him nd into the soil. he can smell the soil turning from dust to mud. he can feel the mud between his toes. he can feel the sensation of the mud between his fingers and on his skin as he rubs it across his arms and legs and chest and back, as the rain continues to belt down in torrents.
the shaman is so certain of this experience that he can feel the slight chill of the cooling water as it washes over him and down into the soil. this certainty draws the storm to him.
the shaman does this when there are no fish in the sea beneath the fishing boats. he calls them to him. the rain comes to the shaman in the same way.
the lawyer does this too. he brings clients and judgements by acting out of absolute certainty regarding his outcomes.
we all do it in one way or another. we may not have noticed,but we are surrounded by what we are most certain about in our lives.
what we let wash over ourselves, what we feel in our bones, what we can hear, see, taste and touch, in our dreams is summoned to the material plane.
we are just like the shaman.

depression and anxiety.

depression and anxiety are the two polarised aspects of the consciousness outside of the moment. they are created states. depression is the loss of something in the past and anxiety is fear of something happening in the future.
when we are fully in the moment, that is absorbed in comfortable existance, then we don`t behave depressed of anxious.
so how do we find ourselves either depressed of anxious?
i am not going to pretend to have answers as to the cause of depression and anxiety and there may be a genetic component to these states that give someone a greater potential for manifesting these traits as a rsponse to situations, but the fact remains that they are reactions to situations and as such we can train ourselves to react differently.
the medical industry wants to give us pills for everything. they have triumphed over diseases and surgeries have repaired broken and damaged bodies. these are true miracles, but when it comes to anxiety and depression the medical industry has provided cures that are at least as bad as the simptoms themselves.
so what does the anxious or depressed person do?
the cause of the state is created and promoted by the environment externally and internally and continues to reinstall the state in an emotional inertia.
the only way to break the inertia is to exert force upon it from an external source. physically speaking, inertia is defined as a body in motion continues in motion in a straight line unless acted on by an external force.
this is true of the mind also.
the external force is a thought or action that inflicts force upon the thoughts creating the state of depression or anxiety.
the anxious person paces up and down, chews thier lip and obsseses on what could happen next.
the depressed person lies in bed, drinks and eats too much and wishes things could have worked out differently.
these behaviours are changed instantly if the place where they are occuring catches on fire.
a house fire is a cure for all mental illnesses..........temporarily.
the housefire we need to create is the ability to switch on our thinking processes to jump start our internal ability to imagine new possibities in our minds.
in our minds. this is where we are doing anxiety or depression.
we think the sky is falling. we see it happening in clear and vivid detail. we even see the buildings containing our loved ones flattened. this causes our brains to release chemicals into our bloodstream that make us feel as if the sky did actually fall on our children.
don`t do this to yourself..
try looking in the mirror and grinning like an idiot. an idiot will smile back!
smile again and you will feel like smiling more. the sky`s not falling if you`re smiling. (look outside if you don`t believe me.)
then go and do what ever you need to do.
be anxious for a moment but keep remembering to smile like you smiled and felt good.
it`s what people who feel good do.
they may have been doing it for longer. selfish, grinning bastards!
there isn`t any magical secret to it. it`s just a matter of what you`ve been doing for a while. smile more for a while and you`ll remember to smile first.
it`s sophisticated brain chemistry.
we are all experts at it .
that`s good news.
good enough to smile about. now.

darwin vs. god vs. ??????????????

o.k. so a judge just made it law that creationism cannot be taught in school science class. the intelligent design position has been found, by the judge, to be creationism in diguise.evolution_debate;
what i don`t understand is why there are only two sides being adressed in this arguement. if one visits for a moment and looks at the list of questions about human dna and the suppositions of evolution from apes, it becomes obvious to those with a mind focused on answers, that niether creationism or evolution explain the human species.
a third hypothesis is needed here, on which is examined at the above website. it is called interventionism and it works like this;
for whatever reason, an advanced species came here from space and genetically engineered us. i don`t know why and don`t feel the need to speculate. what i see from all the data and supposition from the dawinists is that we couldn`t have become what we are from what ever else is here now or was in the past. there are no missing links and no way to show that sophisticated biological devices like the human eye could have evolved.....
lloyd pye does the arguement well at his site, which i linked above, and i highly recommend more that a cursory glance at his work. he is a pioneer and gets little support in the sea of academia and clergy because his evidence doesn`t support thier position.
it`s not evolution or creationism in the bilical sense that made us. it was the hand of a technological mechanism. a mechanism in the hands of a species, not more intellegent than us, but able to bring a superior technology to bear on living tissue.

seing it happen and feeling it like it is happening now.

the power of visualisation is boundless. we create our reality this way and it goes on forever.
you may not realise that it does until you think about stopping it.
you can`t because it`s boundless.
in the material, cause and effect reality that we are proving here we need causes to have effects. this id what creates our consumer culture.
other cultures create thier reality in different ways.
there is a tribe of indians that pray for rain. and it rains........
the shaman does his ceremonial dance and seees the rain and feels the rain and feels the mud of the soaking earth between his toes. he holds this image in his mind, deep in the ritual trance until he has done enough and then he goes and has dinner. because he`s hungry from the job he`s done and he is certain that the rain will come.
this isn`t hit and miss. this is technology.
it is the technology of the kinesthetic response. the technology of what we feel effecting our reality.
the implications of this are staggering and put the responsibility on us fro what we allow ourselves to feel.
by getting caught up in all the uptight end-game struggles of ego and power and money we have, as a society, set ourselves up for more of the same struggles by feeling so strongly about conflict and boundaries that we are bound to get more of the same.
just like the shaman knowing it was going to rain.
the solution? choose good, strong, genuine feelings of love, compassion and abundance to upload each day. really feel them with certainty now.
spend the time to fill your bodies cells with unconditional love. smile and spin the molecules of your substance around. you know how to do it. see the good things happening now and see where the feelings go......into your guts and down your legs, up into your arms, across your face and into your scalp and down your spine. the feelings race around all over if you let them. are you letting them now?
are you smiling?
what do you feel like doing next?
the choice is yours.

emotion = reality.

emotion equals reality. really? there are those who believe that reality is fixed and that we arrive at it after it was formed and they experience it in an objective, solid way. that`s how we are raised to see the world, so it operates that way. until one day we become irritated at things early on in the morning. it may be an innocuous little thing like burning the toast or erasing a bunch of important e-mails or stubbing your big toe on the leg of the bed or running out of toilet paper. whatever it is seems to set off a series of events that result in a huge fight with the girlfriend or the boss or crashing the car in the parking garage.
are these seemingly disparate events connected?
well, the common element is you, isn`t it?
could it be that as your day went along you set up a resonance with negative outcomes that attracted more of the same?
physics works on resonance. it works like this. energy has frequency. that is it vibrates up and down as it moves along. this creates the sine wave we`ve all seen in text books when describing electricity or whatever. the hieght of the wave is known as amplitude. the modulation is the time taken for the wave to complete a cycle. together they describe the wave form. this wave form is the physical character of the wave. it likes to find waves that are like it`s self. this is resonance. all things in physical form resonate when coming into contact with something which carries the same waveform.
an opera singer hits the frequencs that matches a crack in a crystal glass and it will shatter.
a violin string will resonate with the body of the violin, creating the familiar sound when plucked or bowed.
earthquakes shake the ground, sending energy through the earth until it hits objects that aren`t designed to withstand the resonance and buildings, bridges and other structures collapse.
people work this way too.
we come together in like-minded groups because thoughts resonate on specific frequencies. we are drawn to people who are at similar stages of learning, interest and developement. these relationships are called life lessons, karma or a variety of other names. the fact remains that we match frequency of thought and spirit with those who are consistantly in our lives.
sometimes a person takes on new learnings or finally picks up with thier life path and it creates a disharmony with those around them and can cause pain, anger and distrust, causing the person to distrust thier path.
this is a challenge to be meditated upon.
our spirit knows the truth and can recognise where we resonate best. as we get older the lessons start to repeat to the point where we really have to work hard to ignore the message.
when we resonate in harmony all things are possible.
from a purely physical, mathmatical standpoint when we set up a resonance with another we create a second frequency which is called an harmonic. this harmonic is a new frequency which is the higher purpose of the union of the first two.
in marriage this is the home, the children and the love. in music it is a new, comlimentary note singing in harmony and adding to the melody.
in thought it is what comes next when we consistantly hold emotion in our bodies and mind long enough.
this is the practice and truth of prayer, of visualisation and of incantation.
they all work equally well when done right.
from the heart.

time travel.

we are all time travellers. we are all travelling in time together. we move at 60 minutes per hour 24 hours a day forever. the funny thing is that we all experience the same time differently. try standing in line for a coffee while the person in front of you hunts for exact change or sit and listen to the teacher go on and on while the clock hovers between the seconds as your head rests on your desk. or go to a show and barely get comfortable in your seat and the lights come on and you are in the street again heading for your car. or realise that it`s been ten years since you thought a similar thought about something or someone and it seems like just yeaterday.
when i`m waiting for a coffee and i`m really fortunate i will have an enjoyable conversation with someone, or i will go through an enjoyable scenario in my mind and anchor it to a touch on my arm and then keep firing off the anchor until it`s my turn to order. there`s nothing more painful than impatience and so simple to cure.
i travel back in time or forward in time, inmy mind, and my body doesn`t know the difference. i just travel.
but remember, anchor to positive feelings and the travel will be effortless.

lucifer and christ.

there is a lot of talk these days about the identity of the anti-christ. well, we are human after all and so we think in terms of the anti-christ or lucifer as a person. we think of christ this way too and historically the man probably existed as a rabbi 2000 years ago in jeruselem and caused enough problems for the romans that they tacked him to a cross like a common criminal. he was just a man though.
the concept of lucifer , the angel of light, comes from the underpinnings of what went before christianity. before christianity men worshipped many gods and spirits, meeting the needs of his daily life. there were gods for crops, for his family and for his future and he needed to pray to these gods to ensure his prosperity.
the element with the most effect on the lives of men in those times, as now is the sun. men worshipped the sun as a matter of simple efficiency. the sun gives and the sun taketh away. so make your relationship with the sun first and everything else falls in line.
it just makes sense.
jesus, the ressurected, died and was born again. he rose again. the sun comes up in the morning to warm the soil and nurture the crops. it`s that simple.
jesus and lucifer are the same thing in this sense. two sides of the same coin. religion has become industrialised as we have come in from the fields and we have forgotten that we need the sun still, just like those who prayed that the sun would rise in the morning.
to call this new age is patronising and protects a bureaucracy of bishops and cardinals who themselves worship the sun purely and efficiently to ensure the radiant beauty of his contenance.
there is no need for a building to sit in and pray when the sun is in the sky. it is above your head. no need to crowd thousands deep into the piazza to see the holy man in the window. the real god is in the sky. it always has been.
blaspemy? sure. from a bureacratic standpoint. will we burn in hell because of it? no idea.
do we want to grow tall and live our lives? be strong and heathy and be certain in our decisions? o.k., go ahead. the sun will come up in the morning until, for some reason it doesn`t and there`s not a thing we can do about it.
jesus didn`t die for your sins. he pissed the bureaucracy off by teaching hope and love in a time of an invading army of romans in judea 2000 years ago. the only sins we commit are personal and known. don`t do it again, and realise that we may just be alone but for the decisions we make with certainty in our lives.
and the knowledge that the sun will come up in the east in the morning, full of glory.
and don`t look into his eyes..................

because i feel like it.

i just finished listening to an interview with gregg braden on the art bell show. gregg said that the feelings we have are the things that create our reality. he said that a russian physicist took a pipe and pumped the air out of it creating a vacuum. then he mapped the photons in the tube and established that they were random. he then introduced human dna into the pipe and remeasured the photons. the photon patterned themselves after the dna strands. he then removed the dna and the photons held the pattern.
further experiments show that human emotion can effect the shape and tension on the strands of dna. compassion, love and forgiveness allow the strands to relax and unwind, yet anger, hostility and hate make the strands wind up tightly.
he went on to say that the teachings of ancient prophets such as isiah from the bible and a great many others from history have taught that emotions create our reality. we love we get love surrounding us, we hate and it manifests it`s self in our world.
in my postings here i have talked about the precise ways in which we see and hear images and movies and hear voices and sounds in our minds that create feelings in our bodies. i have talked about how we can precisely create specific images and sounds by using our memories and creative abilities to make our bodies experience the most powerful and positive feelings to access the most resourceful states imaginable to live our lives.
gregg braden allows me to scientifically back up all that i`ve known intuitively since i was a small child.

nobody wants to be seen as selfish, yet we all are. i imagine that it is necessary to be selfish to survive. as an individual we can be selfish because we are only responsible for ourselves. this becomes difficult when we are in contact and have relationships with others. the idea of selfishness then becomes seen as mercinary and destructive to the group.
but selfish we remain.
there is something inside all of us that says, me first, and there is a big part inside all of us that nods in agreement.
so how do we reconcile this paradox inside?
we need to understand that co-operation in groups will gain us the best outcome personally.
if we take everything available and leave nothing for anyone else, we have jeopardised the group and this will adversely effect us personally in the near future. if we are antagonistic and competitive we further alienate ourselves and risk future help and resourses at a later time.
i am making a distinction between selfish and greedy here. greedy is the destructive, narrow-minded grab for everything, whereas selfish is an intelligent strategy for optimum personal benifit.
so selfish we remain but greedy at our peril.
co-operation is an investment in our personal survival. we give of our time and resourses as an investment, not with an eye to immediate and measurable return, but with the confidence that, in the medium term, there will be a balance of most benifit personally.

what franklin d. said......................

he said; fear is an illusion, if you us the same energy to be confident, the most wonderful things can happen.
yes. absolutely.
our feelings are the result of our nervous systems communicating, neuron by nueron, throughout the body.
this process is unnoticable most of the time, but imagine a memory of something that thrilled you. doing better than you ever imagined possible, the pretty girl looking and smiling at you, hitting the ball perfectly, watching your friend open the perfect gift that you bought for her.
these scenarios are run in our mind in the form of pictures and movies and sounds and voices that we can amplify now to increase the sense of what we are looking at and hearing.
go inside now and pick your favorite memory and see what you saw and hear what you heard and work with the images and sounds until you feel the feelings inside. recognise the sensations?
now double it.............
where is it spinning?
does it thrill you, if for a split second?
of course it does. you are human.
most of the time we go through our day doing precisely this thing and getting the feelings inside that make us do the next thing and the next thing, but do we ever deliberately choose a good memory or imagined outcome and amplify
i think we have all done it to a degree, but what i`m suggesting is more than that. i`m suggesting going after a black belt in creating unimaginably pleasurable ideas and outcomes in your mind and running them out until you can barely stand it and then doing the stuff you do in your day with a smile on your face.
things are bound to go well with that attitude.
i promise.

everything you know is wrong.

everything you know is wrong.
me too.
certainty makes us stupid.
it`s only uncertainty that makes us resourseful enough to look for answers and solutions. it took me a while to wrap my head around that one. it dawned on you in a few moments. i wish someone had made that clear for me a while ago, but here we are certain enough to be uncertain about things and go in search of answers.
how many times have you known someone was wrong yet they were so sure they were right and refused to look at another way of approaching the situation?
was that you?
the great thing is that we can now take the uncertain approach out into the street and apply it to the next series of situations and smile as we realise that things aren`t set in stone. what seemed like a crisis moments ago or to someone else now appears as an opportunity to exert flexibility and actually assume there is an answer.
you just haven`t uncovered the right stone yet.
you don`t have to turn every stone over either, just keep going until you turn over the one that`s covering your answer.
then go about your day.
look people right in the eyes and smile.
"hello" will be the next thing that comes out of thier mouth.
only the ego needs to be certain. we just need to smile.

things i need for cats to understand.

there a few things i need for cats to understand. firstly, i`d like for them to know that i find them wonderful companions, in spite of thier habits, which is the reason i`m off on a tangent here today.
i live with three of the little (not so little.) buggers, and i wouldn`t change a thing. it`s just that i wish they would understand a thing or two about humans. i believe it would help thier enjoyment of the space we share.
firstly; it`s not a good idea to get under my feet as i`m moving toward your food bowls. if you trip me i will, in all likeleyhood, land on you. this will hurt.
secondly; please refrain from standing on my chest at three in the morning. god knows how long you`ve been standing there, but it`s extremenly disconcerting to see your beady eyes peering at me when i open my eyes from a deep sleep.
thirdly, and most importantly; leave my pens and guitar picks alone. these are two things i need ready access to. i put them in increasingly difficult places to reach with little paws, but you persist. you stubborn little stinkers.
well, i suppose we will just have to put this exercise down to catharsis because i`m pretty sure the cats won`t be reading this.
love them in spite of the issues.
and now back to regularly sheduled programming.

i just realised that i have no idea how to spell concedence properly. is it coincedance, dense, or otherwise? is it important?.....probably yes, somewhere to someone.
anyhow, coincedence is an interesting thing. we`ve all experienced a series of events that are connected in a way that makes us feel that they are happening for some reason.
there`s that word again.
it`s a trap that makes us intellectualise a process.
the flow of energy is our consciousness experiencing things.
reason stops the flow.
the coincedences are the flow of our energy connecting with the flow of the universe.
the signal that this is happening is a similarity of events. a sort of cosmic yoohoo! that lets us recognise the process.
to try to add reason by putting facts together and saying it must mean something is going to happen or whatever misses the point that we are energy flowing together on a ground of awareness.
the critical mind wants to say , well, it must mean something else. no it doesn`t. that`s only a need that the ego has. it doesn`t mean that it must be so.
once you focus on the meaning of all this the energy flow stops. if you want the energy to beging to flow again, merely stop thinking.
how to stop thinking?
hum a tune, cross your eyes and look into the distance or really look hard at things without criticising,and the internal dialog will eventually wind down.
when we learn to allow pure imput without dialog in our minds, then we join the flow. once we join the flow coincedence happen as a byproduct.
roadsigns on the way to connectedness.

we are all part of the same thing.

we are all part of the same thing. one of many sets of eyeballs of consciousness observing and creating the reality we share. we forget that we are all part of the same thing easily because we are only able to focus on one thing at a time in this form. with eyes, ears, a nose and skin and tastebuds to feed information back on one channel it becomes difficult, at times, to get the sense of attachment to everything back again.
meditation, yoga, tai chi, tarot, i ching, time spent deep in nature, doing art, and many other activities bring our attention back to recognising an attachment to knowledge, intuition, peace and gnosis that we forget exists as we rush about our day.
any practice of a consist and meditative nature will bring to the edge of a greater something familiar and loving., where we can charge up for the next round of existance on this plane.

this is for you.

the really cool thing is that this is all about you. every thing you read here will be responded to by you in precisely the measure of your consciousness. you are now naked to yourself as you read these words. the pictures, words and feelings you are experiencing right this second are the precise quantity of your soul upon this earth.
it can be staggeringly frightening to realise that we have this much power ofer reality.
it`s scarier that that though.
it`s simply a fact that the entire universe as you know it is created by you. now.
and now.
and now.
it never stops.
it never becomes someone elses job to keep the ball rolling.
forom the moment you were born you have been creating this entire world all by your self.
well done.
i like the colours.
and the kisses are sublime.
thank you. (me).

echo chamber.

i read somewhere that we live in our own echo chamber. the writer was saying this as a bad thing. i see it as a fact but that we have choices regarding what we allow to rattle around in our chamber. try remembering a joyous moment on the top of a hill or at the opera or seeing the perfect greeting card or seeing your team win the important game and allow that to echo as strongly and a powerfully as you can.
the writer of the observation meant that we are passive to all the noise that echos in our heads.
i know that we are absolutely not.
see a pink elephant.
taste a lemon.
hear a baby cry.
feel a cool breeze.
smell a favorite leather jacket.
see, i told you that you were the master. you just forgot.
you`re welcome........................................

what science doesn`t know.

what science doesn`t know is that we are a living time machine. we are the combined dna of generations of mothers and fathers donating thier genetic material to the process of us becoming born.
what science doesn`t know is that we have a physical connection to the experiences that our ancestors lived. well, they know it, but the scientists refuse to go beyond what they can measure out of the process. what they can`t measure is anything that occurs in the consciousness that connects us to our past. our feelings, desires, and atributes that we share with people that are long dead.
the stories are myriad that directly connect the knowledge of the living with the experiences of the dead.
past life regression is a hypnotic tool that i apply to clients that allow them to have a direct (organic) cellular dialog with thier ancestors. through many incarnations my clients re-experience vivid and meaningful snippets of lives lived in the past that have direct and theraputic effect, sometimes providing profound and life-changing breakthroughs in a persons life.
this cellular memory is contained in the same way that eye colour, hieght, aptitude and a hundred million other traits are contained. in the dna. the dna is an encoding mechanism made of protiens that are so complex as to be virtually infinite. science has found areas in the chains that they refer to junk or spare. why would such a profoundly complex and powerful mechanism contain junk? well, it`s only an opinion brought forth by an analytical tool that has failed to find answers yet, and defending thier position.
what we can gain from this is a tool for inquiring into the history of our species in a remarkable way. by talking to the cells themselves. the so called junk dna is a recepticle for historic memory of the species.
what a concept.
