Been watching Steven Greer on YouTube a bunch. Things are picking up inertia in the hierarchical realm...

Wish there was a way to converse with him regarding WingMakers materials. Seems it might help him streamline his agenda.

And he doesn't seem to realize (yet) that, not only does technology and belief systems and the war regime face the threat of proper disclosure, but MONEY in and of itself would become unnecessary.

The WHOLE pack of cards will crumble.

I'm SO excited if we can gently pull the rug out from under the global control agenda.

    And I ALSO agree with you, Fred, that it's all a big play and dance and there's nothing to WORRY about. I'm just interested in being effective in shifting the dominant paradigm to something more peaceful.

    Brotherly love and all that. Away with clubs and cliques. Let's GET DOWN!

    Yes, Christopher. Things seem to be accelerating. And I'm finding as they do, it's the personal work that each of us are doing that is becoming even more important. Take care and enjoy the ride! With much love and joy, Fred

    I'm so ready for this. It's been a long time coming. I feel like I'm on the front line sometimes, but I'm loving it. Pass me a beer and a joint and I'll watch it go down with you.

    I feel like if we're going to partake, we need to be Drunken Fist style. Still capable. And the super powers I want to have are FLYING (obviously) and the ability to transform and shift energies as well as transmute elements (like breaking down trash, garbage and other pollution to readily usable and beneficial substances). Able to halt war and purposeless fighting. Alter the milieu...

Hey beautiful friends, Below is a collection of quotes I've written over the years about the important role in intention in life. Take what works and leave the rest. And have a great one! With abundant love and joy, Fred The Power of Intention The clearer our intentions are as we move through this eternally unfolding moment of now, the more smoothly and delightfully we can invite transformation to continually unfold for all of us. Intention is a consciousness choice which gives clear direction and meaning to life in every moment without attachment to future outcome.

    Wonderful, Fred! Stupendous! I'm there with ya, buddy! And for ya! Should you "need" it...

    The Neverending Story!

    It IS a beautiful world. And with more and more "right" intention, WE can transform it and send ripples through the omniverse healing past and future THROUGH the present (presence).

    ALL about it! One for all and all for one!

    Curious if you've ever studied Tantra or read the book Tantra Illuminated by Christopher D. Wallis. My wife and I are really enjoying it as an interface for our belief systems. She's a Yoga practitioner (more than i) and instructor, so its basis in that philosophy is good for her to explore. It's universality is immediately recognized by me. Great read, and not at all limited or specifically focused on sex, as a lot of derivatives and deviations from that school are.

    Dancing through realities,

    Brother Christopher

    Hey Christopher,


    I haven't read Tantra Illuminated, but I actually teach tantra and have great passion about healing the huge sexual wound on our planet. I'll make a note of that book. I only wish I had a sabbatical to read all of the awesome books I already have waiting to be read. Take care.


    With love and warm wishes,

    Fred

Hey beautiful friends, Below are some of my favorite quotes on the transformative power of love. Enjoy! With abundant love and joy, Fred Sacred Love: An open, timeless connection through which those involved feel naturally drawn to support and nurture each other's highest and deepest essence and intentions. Whenever I hug someone, I want to consciously focus on sending the energy of "Hey beautiful being! Thank you for being with me in this precious moment together." On the deepest levels every one of us is always held in sacred embrace by the collective love of all of us.

    Beautiful, Fred.

    Love is our greatest teacher. Each time our hearts break open wide, we have the ability to emerge stronger and ever more loving. As the cocoon moves from chrysalis to butterfly, so with our heart and soul growth. We strengthen our 'wings' and we learn to fly even higher.

    May love be what you are met with in each Holy instant.

    In connection, love and light. Peace be and so it is.

Hi,

 

So I've been struggling for a while to come up with a name to call my religion.  Everyone else has one picked out it seems and I'm still trying to figure mine out.  I never know quite what to call myself.  I usually say something like "I love all religions...but at the same time hate them all too..."

 

  • 4 months ago

    P.S. I am not starting a new religion or anything. I just reread my post.


    What I meant is in discussions with friends and such. I hope that clears it up a bit.


  • fredburks's picture

    I can't think of a good name, Nick. But if someone asks you about your views on religion, you might respond by saying "Be careful or my carma will run over your dogma!" Enjoy!


  • Starmonkey's picture

    Good for you, bro.

    Since it seems somewhat "fickle" (in a good way), you could refer to YOUR p.o.v. as Nickisms... Just first thing off my head.

    Robert Brezsny said something about our collective humanity eventually achieving 7+ billion different religions. And THEN we'll be free...

    Sort of hearkens back to your former post regarding spiritual evolution of humans.

    Words are particular. I prefer spiritual over religious. Uninstitutionalized. Less political.

    Old-fashioned but untraditional. Ritual over tradition. Subject to CHANGE, modification or adaptation.

    Maybe you can just scramble or mix up letters from your name. Shouldn't matter as there's no right or wrong. It's your thing.

    Unless you're trying to get others to join? Careful! Read Rogue Messiahs by Colin Wilson before starting your own cult!

    ;)

    Just keep looking,,,but don't name it! That's the point!


  • onesong's picture

    So here's my go at it Nick...

    I am first and foremost a Spiritual being in a physical body. The physical body is the 'garment' I wear in this embodiment-it is not the "I" that I AM. In Spirit, I AM totally healed, healthy and whole.

    On the physical level I may or may not seem that to those I meet and that isn't the important part.

    That I understand the importance of my own Spiritual growth and self mastery while in this incarnation is the important part imo.

    I was raised in an Episcopal church, by parents that would leave it when it no longer resonated with their beliefs. My grandmother exposed me to every church and theology/theosophy she could find as a pre-teen and adolescent, as an adult I realize it was because her 'beliefs' were never adequately met by any of those 'religions'.

    One of my mentors talked about the word 'religion' as a way to Re-Legion the masses-and for centuries it seems religion has been that...but not as a means to affirm our Oneness, rather to separate, divide and conquer those who do not share the same 'beliefs'. That's still happening today.

    In the very center of the word belief you'll find the word 'lie'...not that our beliefs are all lies...but as you have said, as we change and grow it is natural that our 'beliefs' do as well.

    If I had to label what or how I believe, I'd have to say I most resonate with the Gnostic, the Essene and the Christian Mystics of old, but I also find Buddhism, the Tao and many Holy books to be of great value to my education in this lifetime.

    So I tell others, I believe in a Holistic Theology/Theosophy.

    God/Source/the energy of ALL CREATION, is bigger than we humans can even begin to fathom. No one religion is less or more important, many have the same basic tenents at the heart of them. Mine would be the religion of LOVE. Pretty simple: Love one another. Even when it seems difficult.

    For many years I looked outside myself thinking I was somehow separate from "God-ness" for the lack of a better word. What I find, is it isn't something found outside myself, Spirit lives and moves through the very center of my being, something that I acknowledge and accept as I move through daily practices, ritual and routines. When I honor that connection, no matter the circumstance, I am moving in faith with hope and beyond fear. It doesn't mean I always understand why the things in our lives happen the way they do, but at least in my life as I look back, I see how each experience has brought me to who I AM right now. Stronger, wiser, more loving, more patient and releasing fear.

    Love and LIght to you Nick.

I'll start this by saying I watch TOO MUCH YouTube. It would probably be my spirit animal if it weren't for my dog, Georgia. Just kidding. Not.

Abby Martin, ancient civilisations, global cataclysms, Nibiru and ufo stuff, SHARKS... It's too easy and addictive. And there are a bunch of freaks constantly posting THEIR wacky perspectives on things. Some are entertaining. Some are downright misinformation.

Now I noticed these "doomsday ranches" and the stupid "doomsday clock" at two minutes til midnight. What the hell?!

    Sounds like you are ready for a change, Christopher. So many people with so much paranoia, I can understand you wanting more solitude. And if California slides off into the ocean, I'm ready for the ride of my life. It would be a wild and exciting way to go. Good luck and many blessings in all you are planning to do.


    With love and joy,

    Star monkey. Maybe a general thought practice or prayer could be found to help you with your newly found sensitivity. I feel like you can create calm for your body in a few moments a day. An example: I say to myself in the morning, "this is a good day" or "this is going to be a good day". It usually is and it seems to make things less stressful for me. It's like a promise has been made so I can relax knowing things aren't going to go south.

    Thanks, Fred. Good thoughts, big and deep perspective. This seems true as far as words can express truth. Relating to one aspect of what you said: Sometimes I use the analogy of a mainstream computer and its many individual stations. Individually we're like these stations (monitor, keyboard, bells & whistles) and we tend to think of ourselves as having completely separate individual existences. But we forget that we're really conscious outposts of the central computer, which is the Consciousness in which we all take part. I think the new physics posits that there's only one Consciousness in the universe -- and it follows there's one Love. So our individual vantage point (focal point) is just a detail in the vast unborn, undying Awareness in which everything exists (or seems to; do hologram's actually exist?).


    Anyway, I love what you said near the beginning of your post: "The more I open to all of this, the more I realize it is silly to get so serious about it." ...and yet it seems natural to help wherever we can, since we all "inter-are" (using Thich Nhat Hahn's expression).


  • fredburks's picture

    Cool, Bob. I like the computer analogy, even if it is a bit impersonal. Enjoy!


  • Bob07's picture

    Of course, by "mainstream computer" I meant "mainframe computer." Yeah, it's a little impersonal. Analogies are always inadequate by their nature.

    I dig, Fred!

    I'm switching tracks!

    I share sentiments with an analogy I recently watched again on Lost when Kate says to Jack "kind of unlike you, the whole glass half-full thing." And Jack replies "there's a glass?"

    "The goal is not to merge back into oneness, but rather for each part of the whole to explore the richness and variety of being,"

    I heard a Hindu mystic say that the Buddha got it wrong about trying to get back to essential oneness and that Hindu faith or advanced ideas therein was superior because it was about the many...

    You said a lot and deep too. Man.

    " I know that this understanding exists on some deep level within others, but most have unconsciously chosen to block it off."

    That's me in spades. I'm like the poster child for that


  • fredburks's picture
    6 months ago

    Yes. When I hear people say "we are one," I find myself saying "and we are many." If we were truly all one, you wouldn't be reading this and we wouldn't have anyone to interact with. I love that you are there and I am here and we get to explore with each other the uniqueness of each of our beings. The way I like to express that sentiment is by saying we are all divine. We are all interconnected in the same cosmic dance. And we all come from the same divine source. Much love and warm wishes to you all!

Brian posted a new Video in General Discussion:

  I have watched several fascinating videos by a woman who appears to know how to analyze peoples body language. Listening to her is addictive. The video below analyzes two people who are said to be victims of abuse-Fred, I wanted you to see this...I feel it is a validation of the victims and it helps me to understand the odd parts of their expressions. Something she said about world leaders being in on it rings freshly true and appalling. ADMISSION: I find it hard personally to hear their testimony because I don't want the world to have such evil in it.

    Exciting stuff! I've been intrigued by Damanhur for years. I occasionally use the Synchronicity method of divination he developed. Sometimes the language is a bit challenging. I guess English and Italian are a BIT different, eh? Curious about above mentioned history of humanity. I'll read of your adventures there next...

    Thanks for this Nick, it's nice to hear from you here! I haven't felt moved to post or comment here for a long while; it feels strange. :-)


    I challenge that our future hinges on someone becoming "the enlightened one", and that if there are any (and I suspect there are many currently alive), that they will appear to be any different than any other human being, save perhaps for an amused twinkle in their eyes. What determines that, of course, is what one's definition and criteria for enlightenment is.


    If you ask yourself, "what would it mean for me to be enlightened?", and you come up with a list of criteria of how you would feel differently on the inside, how you would behave, how you would look even, what kinds of special powers you would have, etc. - in my humble opinion, that is the extent of which you do not accept your current state as it is. What if the very imperfect, humble, and ordinary experience of being that has been with you always is what you have been seeking your whole life? How could someone tell you how to get it when you already have it, when you already ARE it?


    I was intrigued by Jim Carrey for a while, but I see that he has been playing with quite a lot of polarity in his artwork and seems to be fixated on anger and politics at the moment; just look at his Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/JimCarrey


    Take care Nick, I hope you are doing well. :-)


  • Starmonkey's picture

    Nice spew of words there, Nick.

    100th monkey business was in there, thankfully...

    There's also the possibility it keeps happening individually, and there's not many options except to leave. Dominant paradigm and all that...

    Transit to another dimension to affect this one corporeally. Since you can't change others belief systems by force. Obviously.

    Blowing minds and realities...

    When enough people BELIEVE something else is not only possible, but PROBABLE, things will shift very quickly. As it stands now, there are way to many confusions and distractions and preoccupations for most to FOCUS on any one thing. Sadly, many more will have to die to their earthly forms to free up that energy.

    Another hindrance, and it recently (like yesterday when I saw Ready Player One) clicked with me, is that way too many people are paying too much attention to what's "wrong" or what doesn't work instead of what IS working. Myself included. I posted a content devoid mention of Abby Martin, and I love how she's peeling some caps back, but she's pretty much always focused on the negative business going on. Same energy, different angle. We all need to stop perpetuating that energy cause it just keeps that scrappy ball rolling.

    And most of the games are fixed. Hold all the cards, change the rules, can't win at those games.

    Politics, religion, science, even sociology because of the sexism, racism, ageism, or what have you.

    Spirituality however, is a different matter entirely. Because you can explore and experiment with whatever attracts you. Find your own relationship to it ALL.

    So, yes, it is inevitable, but we probably won't see it on this planet in our currently defined lifetimes.

    I've found it best, for myself, to stop worrying about other people and just focus on doing it for me and my Family. That includes EVERYONE, but not until they realize it.

    And it's not about right or wrong, true or false. Those are more like guidelines, not rules. It's about what inspires a person. It takes millions of tons of pressure to turn coal into a diamond!

    Can't be forced, though. Many will choose against it because they don't think they can change. Old dogs, old tricks...

    Luckily, this isn't the ONLY reality.

    I applaud that dream.

    Gonna be awhile.
