Madeness Watching Madeness

I was enjoying reading people's reactions about last night's so-called presidential debate, and that's not capitalized.

For the most part, people were sad and turned off by both. I am happy to see that. An out of touch person and a stale biscuit never make for serious talks.

I am still puzzled as to why anyone would have a strong reaction watching this farce? Was it not obvious before?

In any case, this child feels freer than ever before. I am happy I barely drank the Kool-Aid. It took me not as long to stare reality in the face :)

Connecting With Fall/Autmun, Wherever You Are

It is difficult to imagine for some that we can feel seasons changing in southern California. But you can if you are open to being in tune with nature, even in one of the most populated and sadly polluted places on Earth.
 
A week or so ago, I began to feel Fall's presence approaching. Like an old wise man or a Crone, she comes slowly walking in, deliberate in her footstep ushering a special quietness.

 

Neither This Nor That, Just Be

The day man will stand on his own two feet and just be, neither man nor woman, straight or gay, religious or political, then man will become more whole. Then can we go pass the continual state of subservient slavery we have locked ourselves in.

When I came to this country where I live, people did not show who they voted for nor did they proclaim their religion as if it was a badge of honor. They did not talk about their sexual preferences either. They were just neighbors and went to work every day.

Thirty years later I came back and saw a very different country. The unruly children proclaimed clan affiliations. They were not Americans anymore but Irish-Americans, Italian-Americans, African-Americans. I felt strange. I was just an incarnated human being.

They proudly displayed stickers on their ancient and inefficient opposing piston internal combustion cars showing who they would vote for. Today, they even hold signs in front of their dwellings telling the world who they are voting vote. Maybe it is an ancient relic of hurd mentality, but seriously now, who cares who you vote for...

Back then, people voted according to what they believed. Over the decades, they were convinced to vote for the "lesser of evils". Fancy living in a world where you vote for the lesser of evils? I would hope for better than evil. Not my world, at least.

Looking around me, I see more people who are neither religious, political nor talk about their sexuality. Can you imagine an alien watching an Earthling proud of using its genitalia a certain way? Or who they have been persuaded to vote for and what religion they feel they belong to. As if you could be proud of having won some sort of genetic gene pool. Strange concepts. It must hide more than meets the eye.

Standing at the Gateway of Perception

If you are feeling overwhelmed, take a step back. If that is not enough, take a few more steps back. If that is not possible, stop and recenter to your deepest, stillest. Eventually, you find yourself at the gateway of perception. Just an entity observing, watching, experiencing this passage on this plane.  There, everything falls into focus even if not always understood. At the very least, there peace can be found as you experience the totality of the experience.

If society has a hold on us it is through keeping us busy and away from calming ourselves down long enough to stop, breathe, and take scope. At a young age, we are taught to control our bodies but not our minds. We are told to have faith and trust in the unknown, unseen, and not-experienced.

One of the most positive things you can do for yourself and the environment around you is to meditate. But that word is loosely associated with many activities and not always well understood. In short, it means many things to many people. A more simple thing is to do away with any of the things we were taught. Simply go within, wait for a little, and see what happens. There you will find a far more potent teacher than any of the teachers on this Earth. There you will find the uneducated teacher, freed from schools of thoughts and systems taught on our planet. There you can find that gateway of perception with that teacher. And it is the sweetest place to be, even in the middle of a storm.

Together we can offload the weight from the world as we take on our inner work.

 

When the storm blows, stay inside

It might seem simplistic to say something like this but as we watch the civil unrest taking over most of the western world one thought becomes clear. When the storm hits, stay safe inside.

Taken on a more wholistic level, we should interpret this as civil fury unleashes -- sadly manipulated by nefarious interests -- withdraw and do the inner work.

Take a Load Off the World -- Do the Inner Work

What a more perfect time as now to take on the inner work to better ourselves? To ground us in Light as the world is torn fighting a seemingly good versus evil war where only a few win?

When the storm brews is when we take our provisions and go within our shelters. Then we sit quietly going within, anchoring in the Light.

That's all. Simple, safe, and effective.

When Intelligent Quotient Mixes with Emotion and Mind

33Nicolas's picture

As children, we are taught to clean our bodies but not do the same with our minds. We live in societies that insist on the mental and learning to control our body but not as much when it comes to our minds.

Intelligent quotient or IQ is highly regarded. Over the past few decades, the emotional counterpart -- EQ -- has also been highlighted. It's now time to wrap the last piece of the holly cocktail, the mind, or spiritual quotient.

Fans of the original Star Trek (TOS) the famous dilemmas presented by Spock and Bones on the Enterprise as Kirk would ultimately have the last word. Ever logical Spock represents our left brain, the rational side, the logical part of us. Bones, the Enterprise doctor Mc Coy was the passionate human, the right side of the brain. It is the side that understands the emotional, sees the harmony. Their legendary arguments were about what course of action to be taken. It included logical and emotional point was the right thing to do. Captain Kirk was ultimately the one making the final choice. He incarnated wisdom, reason, or the mind part of the equation, the spiritual quotient. Or should we call it the mind quotient? It really does not matter much at this stage.

This holy trinity was not anything new. It is as old as life itself.

While we are educated with enough logic to function in society to chase after bigger dreams, bigger TVs, houses, and cars, the emotional has not been well taught, if at all. Mental health is now a hot topic, rightfully so. However, with this new balance, we need a third to counterbalance both. What we need is a Captain who will make the final decision after having weighed both sides for the highest good of all involved.

Choosing the lesser of evils

There is something that horrifies me how people nonchalantly say we have to vote and choose the lesser of evil. What a way to continue to disempower ourselves. What a way to continue the political slavery rigmarole. What a way to protect a few political careerists. What a way to citizens into submission.

When a society becomes reduced to voting for the lesser of evils, you know it has been brought down to its knees. Since when do we, miracles of the Universe, should choose the lesser of evils? On this planet? What a joke. We have so much potential. We are constant miracles in the making. We do not even aware of how many muscles in our feet move to allow us to walk. Yet we do it with ease, at least, for those who can walk. Men were sent to the moon, or not, with as little as a pocket calculator. There are more solutions than obstacles yet the silent majority continues to sheepishly reduce itself to choosing the lesser of evils.

As the US voting circus is unfolding its machiavellian death-spiral, it is fascinating to see that after decades of left and right parties that have held complete control of this country, we still talk of democracy. Democracy was never reduced to only voting for the lesser of evils every four years and supporting a high-flying class of political careerists representing an occult ruling class. Democracy was about you and I stepping up to the plate as citizens of a greater part and then go back home to our families.

We are being asked once again to choose what we want and voice our wants and needs, not to debase our societies by voting for the lesser of evils. Perhaps if people read the constitution, things would be a little clearer?

It is Life and the Silent Majority

This post is going to be rough. It highlights the complacency of the so-called "silent majority".

It is a rough translation from an email I received. It speaks volumes to me because I react, I call in, I write about it, I say something about it when most people around me shrug their shoulders and say it is life. No, it is not life. It is life becoming and we are not disempowered. We can choose to say: "I don't like it. Three is something wrong here. It should not happen." And when more than one person says no, citizens reclaim their disenfranchisement.

Before I translate this, I wanted to explain where I come from. We should always do this. We come to the table fully loaded with previous experiences that shape the way we see life and reason. These are some of mine.

I was molested as a six or seven year-young kid. While the act was traumatizing, what followed was worse. The authorities did nothing. They told the perpetrator that they knew who he was and that he could never come back to the city. That was it. I stepped up to the plate like a good little soldier wand was left behind... It was in the 1970s and things have changed since, but not as much as they should. Ever since,

I grew up to be leery of authorities, adulthood, justice, and what we are taught, how we are raised, and everything that we are told is good and wrong in our society. I have lived in many parts of the world and all societies have their weaknesses. That is why I raise my voice. I say when I see or hear something. I call out bullyism.

This email is from a German who has since passed away. It highlights how the silent majority is responsible for letting things get horribly wrong. Without calling for a rise to arm, an intelligent citizen is one who calls out when there is something wrong and does not just shrug shoulders saying it's life.

What To Do When You're Stuck...

33Nicolas's picture

Just chill out, would you? That's the thought that pops in my head feeling I am stuck not quite knowing where I need to go.

It is strange. I have the perfect opportunities showing up in my career life but not rushing in. In fact, I have no juice for it. Although it feels as if something is coming out of the dark tunnel, it is not quite clear enough to say "I'm home!" I look at my natural talents and my passions to see where they can be best used. But I cannot see very clearly at this moment. I could beat myself up or simply take a step back and wait.

It is scary to take a step back when surrounded with incertitude. And that is basically it. Things are changing and not too many understand where anything is going.

One thing is for sure. I want peace. I want a change. I want something new. I hate to leave behind something I loved and earned my place with, but I feel it is time. I am just not sure what, where, and when. So I will sit on the dock of this bay, watching time go by until the doors open again. And that is one weird feeling of being inactive!

Steady As She Goes

In the midst of the turmoil and world chaos, I see that deep down I am as calm and centered as can be. How could I be anything else?

Maybe it simply boils down to what is made available to us as a whole. I feel it is more about what we chose to concentrate on. Turn on a TV, if you still have one of those things and you can see a constant stream of negative news and entertainment designed to make you want more. The same thing happens on social media. My Facebook wall is so polluted with negative finger-pointing, uni-level points of view, and well-meaning intentions. It is so ugly, I do not read a thing on it. It is hard to not walk away feeling it is the end of the world. And perhaps it is but an end of life, it is not.

I was born in a world where people used rotary phones, did not lock doors and electric magnetic fields (EMF) were few. Today, we are bombarded with the next greatest and "bestest". G5 promises faster connection speeds while many sound the health and environmental alarm.

The tough part is that the vast majority everywhere listen to mainstream news. Considering five companies hold all news outlets in the US, it is hard to imagine we have access to fair, impartial, and unbiased news. Considering how big businesses conduct themselves and looking into their business model, it is not too difficult to see there is a fundamental underlying problem. Between what they say and what they do, there is a world of differences.

Still, within the safety of my "inside", there is calm. It is almost as if there is a wise person sitting, looking. observing, and not getting excited about anything. Neither happy nor sad, this inner entity watches with an anchored confidence. There is a hint of a "make the transition now or wait for a few more decades", but overall, things are going according to divine Universal intention.
