The past

hmmm – OK, first thing to touch on is about personalities. From a higher perspective, we discover that the “person” we thought we were is really just a series of personalities, each with their own story. As we move through life, we shift them according to circumstances. We pop up with the dad model, then the worker, then the jock, then lover… Each building on our past.

As we become more self-aware, we may follow the thread back to where these stories originated. Parental experiences. First relationships. Where we had positive or negative feedback, and so forth. But we also … Continue Reading…

The hero-path

“We have not even to risk the adventure alone; for the heroes of all time have gone before us; the labyrinth is thoroughly known; we have only to follow the thread of the hero-path. And where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a God; where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves; where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence; where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world.”

— Joseph Campbell

Whats Goin’ On?

Recently, people have been sending me emails said to be from time travelers, ascended masters, and such. But the words of those “masters” reveals they are not. They have only a partial view of reality and current events. Here is a response to a recent one:
Other parts of time are not other dimensions. Otherwise we’d have to change dimensions to move through time, like remembering something. And if they were different frequencies, we’d run out of frequency space. Or the energy levels required to sustain the illusion would get stupidly high.

Time by itself is a dimension that … Continue Reading…

thoughts on Karma

From another discussion…

Karma is a word that has a lot of noise attached to it. There is nothing to believe about karma. It simply means action. And as we all know for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. So its all about balance of energy.

The principles of action are very simple but the dynamics get very complex very quickly. Everything that “happens” interplays with everything else. Hence it is described as ‘unfathomable’. You can’t figure it out. But if you follow the basic principles, it will help make things smoother.

The function of our mind … Continue Reading…

The Witness

“Your Witness

You may not have ever considered this truth – there is always a part of you that watches how your personality lives life. It’s always noticing! You are aware of this witness when you do something like overreacting to what someone says or you are on a diet and you notice yourself opening the fridge door to finish that piece of cake. Part of you knows you shouldn’t but you do it anyway. There is always this witness, the mind of your higher self that notices how you relate to life.

Perhaps you have watched yourself engaged in … Continue Reading…

Psychoenergetics

ORBS: ARE THEY A PSYCHOENERGETIC PHENOMENON?
By
William A. Tiller, Ph.D.
[Professor Emeritus of Materials Science, Stanford University]

            Psychoenergetic science is traditional science expanded to incorporate human consciousness as a significant experimental variable. This is because today’s quantum mechanical paradigm, as it is presently formalized, is totally incapable of dealing with any psychoenergetic process and humans are all about such processes.
From our past 10 years of psychoenergetic science research, the items relevant to this lecture are the following:

1.      Most importantly, we have discovered that there are … Continue Reading…

Commitment

A few days ago, I wanted to blog about commitment but didn’t get to it. (irony) Then I heard a talk on how such ideas were just the ego, wanting or not wanting to engage. But it does lead to a deeper thought on the concept.

Commitment really speaks to our role in the world and to relationship.

What are we committed to? To ourselves, to our obligations, to the bigger picture?  As Yoda famously said, Do or don’t do, there is no try. Sometimes we have this idea that if we don’t decide, we don’t commit, it may work … Continue Reading…

Memories…

“Memories, like the corners of my mind
Memories
Misty watercolor memories
Of the way we were
Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were”

Gladys Knight & The Pips, The Way we Were

Put another way, memories are the patterns in our mind, put down by our response to our experiences. They are the structure of our individual reality. This is why so many live in the past. Or the dreams of the future, extrapolating those memories.

Note also how they are … Continue Reading…
