Mayan Calendar

Last night I went to a presentation by Dr. Carl Calleman on the Mayan Calendar. He is one of the foremost authorities on the subject and many in the field count him as their mentor. He explained the nature and function of the calendar as a map of the energy of time and the changes taking place.

He places the completion of the calendar at Oct 23, 2011. Not based on the older understanding but on scientific research. Its also the date the Mayan elders subscribe to. But he also observes that the end date is not the most important … Continue Reading…

Morphic Fields

Rupert Sheldrake summarizes the concept of Morphic fields and their consequences.

“memory is inherent in nature”
“Most of the so-called laws of nature are more like habits.”
“How are these fields inherited? I propose that that they are transmitted from past members of the species through a kind of non-local resonance, called morphic resonance.”
“The fields organizing the activity of the nervous system are likewise inherited through morphic resonance, conveying a collective, instinctive memory. Each individual both draws upon and contributes to the collective memory of the species.”
“The resonance of a brain … Continue Reading…

What to Do?

Nirmala talks about What to Do?

“The question of what is going on here, what is this experience of doing, can be a rich experience in and of itself. The question can put us more in touch with our experience than any answer can. The question invites a direct sensing of all of these various levels of our experience. As the broom moves across the floor, is it possible to simultaneously experience the emptiness within, the richness and oneness of all things and the personal actions of our particular body? Why do we have to choose one?

And what about … Continue Reading…

Love Is

“Is this love – is this love – is this love – Is this love that I’m feelin’?”

Well – maybe… Probably not really. We are surrounded by messages of love in our culture. Most of the songs we hear are about love gained or lost. Talk of dating and relationships. Most magazines, whatever the subject or market, feature beautiful women on the cover. Confused messages about what love is or isn’t, what we want and don’t want.

The basic issue is that we have an innate sense of what real Love is but no consistent way to experience it. … Continue Reading…

The past

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…
