 I just watched a great, great movie about the climate change pickle we're in by Jeff Bridges called Living in the Future's Past.  I think I saw it as a paid movie on YouTube Premium.
This non-blaming movie was very helpful to me to sort some stuff out.
For the first time since I was a teen I could see the modern world as a fragile and temporary energy system. He spells it out-it's a world built on "fossilized Sunlight". Everything (this email) is built on this cheap energy.
It was a gentle movie-I needed that.

    Hey Brian - haven't had a chance to follow up on this yet, but thanks for flagging this up.

    What did spring to mind, however, was a comment that's been made on a couple of other posts - no change without resistance - perhaps that's relevant here as well?

    I've spent a fair number of years remote viewing and met and "trained with" people like Joe McMoneagle and I wouldn't say that RV is reliable for things like:

    "How do I attain inner peace, no matter what unsettling situation is "thrown" at me? " (per probablefuture.com...I smell a salesman)

    It also isn't usually useful for seeing future events as a kind of looking glass you can just switch on either. Sometimes things come to you because you are open and they are IMPORTANT for you to know. Like where the tribe can find game to hunt or where clean water may be. Or that you're aboiut to get fired. Hah.

    How cool that you trained with Joe McMoneagle, Brian! I met him twice and was quite impressed. Are you still doing RV? I've haven't put any real time into it myself. Much love!

    Thanks Fred.  You did an amazing job with this community.  I am forever grateful for all the work you put into this.  It has really changed my life.  I think it has served its purpose for now.  Maybe one day it will come back strong.  Who know?

    Yes it is a little sad especially since the content is extraordinary and full of Love! Not to mention Fred being such a beautiful soul! Life is funny sometimes. I was shocked to see it's been three years for me as well. I do continue to support this monetarily but it needs more of our time than anything else right now. I am going start checking in again. Loving Blessings!

    Hi Mario - pleased to meet you - it's always good to get some new connection on the site. As you can see, I'm still checking in from time to time to see what's happening here!


    In recent weeks I've been on the site looking at the Law of One info. I've just read Don Elkins' first volume of the Ra Contact, got sidelined into some stuff by David Wilcock, and just in the last few days my attention has been highjacked by a brand new release from Asil Toksal (I hadn't heard of him before) - Transmission - certainly worth a look, not least because it's very very current and relates to what's going down now cosmically.


    With much love and blessings

    It is sad because the site helped me cope with a very dark time and it elevated my life unexpectedly. I wish I could help. I stopped checking in when I felt there was too much serious interest in conspiracies that I knew were not real or rational and because I had work distractions pulling me away from my earlier spiritual interests. I hope all is well for y'all.

  • 8 months ago

    Sometimes I get so caught up in what the world needs that I forget all it has to offer. I get trapped in this mentality that the Earth is broken and needs my help to fix it. It's true we can all work to make this a better place, but the resistance is what makes it fun.


    The Earth is wonderfully fantastic the way it is. It is all unfolding as it should. How do I know that? Because it is happening!!


    That's all the proof I need. Let's not get so caught up in the shadow side that we can't bask in the light.

    Book post gone... Comments all over the place anyway... Frayed thread...

    Toward the end of OPoC PDF book I've constantly mentioned a relevance.

    Asking the Nine about broken leylines. Said the Serpent line had been broken in GB. Like the beams in the DT.

    Then they co-opt that energy, in this case SEXUALITY. Which mirrors our psychic centers and provides the energies for "higher powers".

    Glad the WingMakers straighten all that out. What's what...

    And some of the more daring and less confused schools of Tantra and magick...

    Quite the unique (and Monique) situation we're in here! ODD to think most of the rest of the beings not in human form can't even fathom what it is we're experiencing, since only we can sense it! The matrix within the matrix. The hologram of separation.

    SPECIAL.

    Now we just need to convince "8 billion" "other" "people".

    EASY. How about a REAL challenge!!

    Most profound words ever out of my mouth during my '98 mushroom trip...

    Well, it's already here, always has been. Just takes some REFOCUSING.

    I've been watching many videos on WWI and WWII. The unimaginable loss of life by horrifying experience has hit me once or twice. The "shadow" or polarity wasn't fun for people getting gassed in German death camps where you can still see their fingernail scratches in the concrete walls. The sensless suffering makes me worry that thinking it's a game is a disservice. I can still hold that thought but I understand people not finding it exceptable.

    ...that I am 4 years late to this party but I must thank Fred for jumping in here and bringing this to the front page. I have been kind of taking a break as of late and reading pulp just for entertainment. It looks as though I now have a structured bit of study to do and 4 years worth of posts to catch up on. Off to see if I can get these PDFs straight onto my Kindle Fire.


    Thanks for your work in starting this group.


    Kevin


    Edit: I have found that the link to book one in the first post is broken. Also, in the post where Chris put the other 4 books, the link is not there. Also, nowhere in this site can I find a button called "Groups". Are these just the hazards of working from a 4 year old discussion or did we run into trouble with distributing copyrighted material? I was able to download the Council of Nine material (thanks Berry). If anyone knows where I can obtain the LOO material please let me know.

    Thanks Fred! It seems that I was one click away from there on my search last night. I made my way through the study guide which was quite interesting. I think I know where Nassim Haramein got the ideas for his research now. RA was using all the terms that Nassim espouses these days, curious.


  • ChrisBowers's picture
    7 years ago

    One of the most intriguing things RA said in the Law of One sessions is that 4th & 5th Density, the densities primarily of Love and Wisdom, are the most difficult of all to integrate prior to entering the almost thoroughly complete non polarized Union of 6th Density.


    This came to mind Fred (given the discussion of late) when you brought the subject of the Law of One to the fore.  It is such an interesting subject to ponder, the integration of Love and Wisdom...


    Thank you for prompting me to think of this subject again...

    I have in the past come across references to Ra and the Law of One but so far hadn't taken the time to dive deeper into it until just recently Keith, my husband, downloaded 'The Ra Contact: Teaching the Law of One" by Don Elkins which I've just started reading.  This afternoon, for no particular reason, Keith drew my attention to the possible re-incarnational connection between Edgar Cayce and David Wilcox which I thought was interesting but wasn't aware of any relation to Ra.  This afternoon I also started going through this thread but was called away and left the page open on my browser.  When I just came back to it now, I was amazed by the post which was sitting right in front of me:



    Joyanna, I do think you have a pleasant surprise in store for you as we move more into the Law of One, and, Davids' ensightful commentary.  Edgar Cayce was not in touch with Ra as far as anyone knows, but, David Wilcock is.  And all evidences and circumstances indicate that David is the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce."'


    I'm already a true believer in the power of synchronicity, but REALLY, how weird is that???


    Could be the Universe wants me to be aware of this connection ...

Hi all!

 

I am currently in Vietnam, but am planning to take a trip to India soon to find a monastery to study at for a while.  I was wondering if anyone knows anywhere to start.  I don't have much of a plan at the moment.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Hey Nick,


    I spent 10 weeks in India and five weeks in Nepal back in 1994. In Nepal (which I highly recommend), I loved Kopan, which is less than an hour outside of Kathmandu. In India, I didn't find any great monastaries, though I spent some excellent time at Mother Theresa's place in Calcutta, and I've heard RIshikesh is great for spiritual journeys. Have an awesome time!


    With much love and warm wishes,

    Fred

    Thanks for your wise thoughts, Chris. I also find it's much better to get clear on the work within before taking action out in the world. And like you, I still regularly go back and look at the WingMakers philosophy and am amazed at its continual clarity and profound depth. Enjoy!

    What you're saying here totally resonates with me, right down to the yoga and meditation - thanks for taking the time to share! I'm about 10% into Tantra Illuminated and so far I'm impressed with the clarity and precision of expression - plenty of time yet to get bogged down in the dense bits ;-)

    Just thought I'd tack my post in here as it relates to JUDGEMENT and COMPASSION - the idea that these were two faces of the same coin was not an obvious concept for me ...


    Anyway, came across this further comment on the essence of compassion on Masters of the Spirit World website which I found interesting and quite thought provoking - and having our thoughts PROVOKED is never a bad thing ...


    "ANSWER: Compassion is a third-dimensional concept since it has a corollary negative aspect. Society says to understand another human you need to put yourself in their shoes. It is a very important part of many religions, normally talked about as “it is more blessed to give than to receive” or “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” These precepts indicate that you have a responsibility to take care of others in order for them to receive their due, for you to be a good person, and so that society doesn’t have to take care of them.


    Compassion is not a spiritual concept because its completion requires people on two sides of an issue – the giver and the receiver. It involves the giver’s issuing a judgment on the receiver by saying they do not have something which they need and the giver therefore will provide it – whether the receiver thinks they need it or not."

In the French motel that we stayed at last night there was the phrase written on the walls - stencilled in quite a large script as part of the decor, not grafitti - "la meilleure façon de réaliser ses rêves est de se réveiller" (the best way to realise our dreams is to wake up).  Quite surprising to find such a profound pronouncement in such mundane a context!

    Just now, whilst re-reading Seth Speaks (thank you again, Chris, for that nudge), it sorta dawned on me that the above idea is intimately tied up with one of my own key life lessons - that despite all signs to the contrary, with life becoming more and more challenging on all sorts of levels, I have to hold the faith that EVERYTHING IS HAPPENING PERFECTLY.  This is obviously easy enough when life is smooth and pleasant, but more recently I have to tell myself again and again that everything happens for a reason, it's all part of the divine plan, all is well - and that's why I keep getting these reminders popping up.  WOW, I'd never thought of this being a personal lesson before, but it does make sense ...


    Just felt the need to share ;-)

    That's powerful, Julie! I find that the more I open to taking personal responsibility for literally everything happens, the more aligned I become with All That Is. And at the same time, I know that we are all co-creating this together, so it's not just me, but everyone who is co-responsible for everything that happens. Thanks for sharing your realization!

    THE RULES FOR BEING HUMAN


    HANDED DOWN FROM ANCIENT SANSKRIT


     


    1.  YOU WILL RECEIVE A BODY


    You may like it or not, but it will be yours for the entire period round.


    2.  YOU WILL LEARN LESSONS


    You are enrolled in a full-time, informal school called life.  Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons.  You may like the lessons or think them irrelevant and stupid.


    3.  THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, ONLY LESSONS


    Growth is a process of trial and error, experimentation.  The ‘failed’ experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiment that ultimately works.


    4.  A LESSON IS REPEATED UNTIL IT IS LEARNED


    A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it, then you can go on to the next lesson.


    5.  LEARNING LESSONS DOES NOT END


    There is no part of life that does not contain its lessons.  If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.


    6.  ‘THERE’ IS NO BETTER THAN ‘HERE’.


    When your ‘there’ has become ‘here’, you will simply obtain another ‘there’ that will, again, look better than ‘here’.


    7.  OTHERS ARE MERELY MIRRORS OF YOU


    You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.


    8.  WHAT YOU MAKE OF YOUR LIFE IS UP TO YOU


    You have all the tools and resources you need, what you do with them is up to you.  The choice is yours.


    9.  THE ANSWERS LIE INSIDE YOU


    The answers to life’s questions lie inside you.  All you need to do is look, listen and trust.

    Desiderata


    GO PLACIDLY amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.


    Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.


    Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.


    Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.


    Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.


    Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass.


    Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.


    Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.


    Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.


    And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Hey beautiful friends, It is with some trepidation that I am choosing to share the most vulnerable article I've ever written below. It may change the way you see me, yet I ask as much as you can that you hold what I write with compassion. The topic is disturbing and inappropriate fantasies (mine included) and a call for help for those who are tormented by them. Please note that this article and the website on which it is posted are completely separate from my work with PEERS. May this essay serve to start what I believe is a very important and needed conversation.

    Thanks, Fred. Very courageous of you. I'm not sure there are any "normal" orientations to sexuality anymore. And the isms don't help. Sexism, ageism, etc...

    Also the repressive society we inherited from Victorian days causes many problems.

    Wilhelm Reich studied orgone and how its exchange is free and easy with children. It's why we love them and are attracted to their energy, if we're not controlling or manipulative. They're how we used to be...

    The "native Americans", I gathered, had over 240 different types of sexuality they honored or respected. WOW.

    Anyway, if we had been allowed to grow up more freely and naturally and experiment and experience, things would be much different. As it is, too much is focused on SEX instead of energy.

    No solutions here. But love and understanding. WE can be there for one another, but don't look to psychotherapy for answers.


  • fredburks's picture

    Thanks for your wise words and support, Chris. And yes, there is so much focus on sex in our society, yet most of it is unhealthy. If we were all brought up in a sex positive environment, I suspect we'd live in a much more kind and gentle world. Take care.


  • Wendy's picture

    Thanks so much Fred,


    As I read posts about the ellite paedophilia I know that we all need to heal our own sexual deviations to really heal the world so here goes....I hope what you say about sharing will help with the healing. I also hope that if more people bravely share it will help us all heal.


    I myself have struggled almost all my life about inappropriate sexual fantasies connected to food and over eating / binging. While my binges seem to get more brief as I get older, there are still times that I eat only to get a sexual high. I'm not really sure what has caused this in my life but without going into details that are not really mine to share, I can only say that I'm pretty sure there are other members of my family that had the same issues. The combination of sugar and fat reacts like a powerful drug in my body. Kind of a tough thing to take in a world that is so full of this food. I'm figuring there must be a lot of other folks who react this way or why else would those foods be pushed so much when they are so unhealthy.


    I know how important it is for our spiritual advancement to get over these addictions / sexual deviations. There is a lot of fear in me connected with sharing this but I know logically that this community has been very supportive and so I hope that others will brvely offer their stories. I think the best support / help we could hope for is to know that we are not alone in these problems.


    Wendy

    Thank you so much for your vulnerable, heartfelt sharing, Wendy. And yes, I have no doubt that you are not alone in this. If we all shared our sexual fantasies, I think almost everyone would be shocked at how strange and even twisted many of these fantasies are. And I have no doubt that as we start talking more openly about these very sensitive, yet very important issues, healing and transformation will happen. Thanks again for our courage.

I am going to talk about eternity briefly in a different way than you are probably used to.  Most people usually think of eternity as a large amount of time. Usually it consists of many, many years.  My idea of eternity is a little different than most.

  • juliemartyn's picture

    I've reached a place where I'm comfortable with the concept of the infinite nature of ALL THAT IS.  I don't pretend to understand it, of course.  I still find it mind boggling when I try to get my head around the implications.  This includes the idea that no possible scenario goes undeveloped or unexplored on some level.  The alternative options of every decision that anyone could ever make exist as probabilities on different levels. 


    We each have as many probable selves as there are infinite forks and branching at each decision point.  I've no doubt that a world exists where Hitler wasn't defeated and another where we all enjoy the benefits of Tesla's 'free' energy - and in those worlds there are probable versions of ourselves - we, however, decided to focus our consciousness in this particular version of reality.


    This ties in with idea that there are no 'wrong' decisions because every decision is viable and valuable for the experience it leads to, whatever that may be.
