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...
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...


The motion picture Love explains what needs to be understood about the human condition: we are designed to be part of our planet. We are attached to the planet in multiple dimensions which traverse the space/time matrix. Our “books” of memories (data banks) are imprints of all the aspects of our being, all the relationships we forge; all the history we write: past/present/future; that ultimately, LOVE is a force that binds us cohesively to all these aspects which are mirrors of our own consciousness. “You only have to remember that what you have done in your life may change what someone else is doing in their life and so therefore, your life continues in their eyes. ”— The Story Teller In the film, Lee Miller, the astronaut who is abandoned/isolated on the International Space Station (IS(i)S) in 2039, confronts the ultimate enigma of SELF…that the past collides with the present; the future wrote the NOW, and that love triumphs over isolation, even physical death.
