The strug·gle is over

strug·gle  /ˈstrəgəl/   Verb- Make forceful or violent efforts to get free of restraint or constriction. Noun- A forceful or violent effort to get free of restraint or resist attack. Synonyms: verb.  fight – wrestle – strive – combat – contend – battlenoun.  fight – battle – combat – conflict – contest – wrestle Everyone has been conditioned to the mindset of struggle. conflict, war and endless pushing against…whatever. We had a war on crime; and got more crime (in fact, the criminals took over the war on itself). The war on drugs—produced MORE “illegal” drugs. We fight cancer…in 1900 cancer accounted for less than 3% of known mortality, today, in the prime age groups for death by disease, it accounts for close to 40%. We have cancer “awareness”, cancer fund drives, entire segments of the non-profit industry focus on charitable giving to “eradicate cancer”.  How about the war on terrorism? We could go on but the point is this: investing energy in struggle simply forms an endless looping of the conflict, investing it with increasing power until it becomes malignant, self-perpetuating, and consumes all reason from the initial focus. “Banish the word ‘struggle’ from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. We are the ones we have been waiting for.” — Hopi...

Living without money?

 Radical concepts break established patterns. To even begin to conceptualize such a radical concept as living without the normal means of monetary investment…viewing money and possessions as transient means of exchange, and defying the cultural imperative that one must toil, horde, and covet opens the collective neural pathways to innovative new ways to imagine life outside our artificial value systems. At a time in history when the concepts of money, materialism, and western-style consumerism are being upturned, it worth pondering: http://livingwithoutmoney.org/ I had everything I needed, I had a house and I had raised two children. I gave it all away.” The documentary Living Without Money portraits the life of 68 year old Heidemarie Schwermer, a German woman who made a deliberate choice to stop using money 14 years ago. She cancelled her apartment, gave away all of her belongings and kept nothing but a suitcase full of clothes. This was a decision that changed the entire outlook on her life dramatically. Today, after 14 years, she is still living almost without money and claims she is feeling more free and independent than ever.  The film follows Heidemarie in her day to day life and shows the challenges she meets by living an alternative lifestyle.

Side visioning

Side visioning

Slowing down the perceptual time stream opens up new dimensions between the vectors of space-time. Slow the breath to slow the mind…see the flickers at the edges of perception of the mirror world. I am nothing but the empty net which has gone on ahead of human eyes, dead in those darknesses, of fingers accustomed to the triangle, longitudes on the timid globe of an orange. I walked around as you do, investigating the endless star, and in my net, during the night, I woke up naked, the only thing caught, a fish trapped inside the wind. -Enigmas, Pablo Neruda “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.” – Jesus (Matthew 6:22) Look deeper, but look with the “eyes” that can see. Your frontal (or fovial) vision, the straight-on gaze, is the vision you were entrained to use…the flat space of 3-D. Shift your vision to your periphery…breathe,,,watch faint glimmers appear. Breathe…avoid the straight-on vistas of your lying eyes. Shift to your side view, called “peripheral vision”. Peripheral vision of the human eye. Wikipedia: Peripheral vision Flicker fusion threshold is higher for peripheral than foveal vision. Peripheral vision is good at detecting motion (a feature of rod cells). Peripheral vision is hard to study in an objective manner, because there is no way to separate the visual detection of the eye from the neural processing of the brain. While the eye can be dissected and examined under a microscope, even if the entirety of the retina is capable of detecting light, that capacity may not...

the un·real·ity of time

Removing the concept of “time” from  our ontological processes is a radical step towards large scale consciousness. For the more one studies the very assertion that time is “real”, the more difficult it becomes to actually substantiate what constitutes an absolute value.  The best minds of the pioneering field of quantum physics were daunted by this oblique concept—a concept which we humans insist is “real”. John Wheeler (1911-2008), the physicist who coined the terms, “black hole” and “wormhole”, framed it in entirely subjective terms: “Time Is What Prevents Everything From Happening At Once…Space is what prevents everything from happening to me!” Metaphysician and philosopher, John Ellis Taggart (1866-1929), wrote in “The Unreality of Time” (1908), that our perception of time is an illusion. The article, published in the 1908 Mind: A Quarterly Review of Psychology and Philosophy , opens with this statement:“It doubtless seems highly paradoxical to assert that Time is unreal, and that all statements which involve its reality are erroneous. Such an assertion involves a far greater departure from the natural position of mankind than is involved in the assertion of the unreality of Space or of the unreality of Matter. So decisive a breach with that natural position is not to be lightly accepted. And yet in all ages the belief in the unreality of time has proved singularly attractive.” ““I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all...

beyond time?

Consciousness is not a single state, but a reflective “snap shot” of a now-ness observed and realized. The clockwork effect is a focus point of perception, not an absolute as most quantum physicists readily agree, Past, present, and future—so-called—all exist at once, as fractals of the process of unfolding creation. It is, from the perspective of consciousness, that phenomena such as time dilation is affected by gravity and velocity: Time speeds up and slows down under variable conditions: “Gravitational time dilation is at play for ISS (International Space Station) astronauts too, and it has the opposite effect of the relative velocity time dilation. To simplify, velocity and gravity each slow down time as they increase. Velocity has increased for the astronauts, slowing down their time, whereas gravity has decreased, speeding up time (the astronauts are experiencing less gravity than on Earth). Nevertheless, the ISS astronaut crew ultimately end up with “slower” time because the two opposing effects are not equally strong. The velocity time dilation (explained above) is making a bigger difference, and slowing down time. The (time-speeding up) effects of low-gravity would not cancel out these (time-slowing down) effects of velocity unless the ISS orbited much farther from Earth.” – Wikipedia article, Time dilation The question becomes: what IS gravity? What is velocity? Beyond all the mathematics and physics equations, we do not comprehend the source of gravity. No, not the definition of these forces—The Source. If consciousness is a fractal of the wholeness of creation, does it not also fully contain gravity within its totality? What if—humans, who are greater than their mere physicality—are, in fact the source of...
