The 12 Dimensions

The Twelve Dimensions.


by Sufian Chaudhary – 

Life begins by entering the First Dimension, which is a very rudimentary existence that serves as the energetic building blocks for all higher forms of consciousness. A First Dimensional existence is generally in the form of a mineral or rock and is completely unaware that it is indeed alive. Very little is accomplished in the First Dimension other than purely existing within the present. After a very long period of time, a First Dimensional existence will undergo what is called a Dimensional evolvement or Ascension, in order to advance to exist within the next Dimension. This evolvement marks the very first Ascension that an individualized consciousness attains within a complete Universal cycle. The need to come into Life sparks the first Ascension and this is coordinated with the naturally shifting Ascension energies of the planet that it exists upon. When a planet ascends its body, everything there is rebirthed into a new state of existence. This new state of existence is known as the Second Dimension. 

The Second Dimension. 

Our souls have experienced the simplicity of plant life, been as passive or as aggressive as any of the members of the animal kingdom and found ourselves completely submersed in the art of nature. Second Dimensional existence comes forth in the form of plants, animals, insects and everything that is considered part of wildlife or nature. Basic processes and functions are now available where movement sets the stage for a definable life. The soul will now reincarnate as many species of plants, animals and insects and gradually start increasing its consciousness one life at a time. 

The Second Dimension also allows for the introduction of male and female energies that first exposes consciousness to the nature of dual forces working with each other. Second Dimensional philosophy was touched upon in Buddhism where the belief that the human soul also entailed multiple lifetimes throughout the plant and animal kingdoms before incarnating into a human body. Living things therefore deserve respect for they are also in the process of learning to be alive. You should never kill living things such as trees or wild animals or hurt nature in any way because we were once in their very same position. This teaching is also a fundamental law for Unconditional Love. We are the Earth we live on. 

Consciousness overlaps multiple Dimensions as a result of the Collective Unconscious housing multiple frequencies of existences together. Cats and dogs often bridge both the Second and Third Dimensions as their human caretakers operate in a higher form of consciousness. The higher vibratory energies inevitably funnel down and help their acceleration into the Third Dimension as well. The same can be said to be occurring with Archangels in relation to human beings. An overlapping of Dimensions occurs in order to tailor for constantly evolving consciousness. Rather than experiencing sudden jumps, the introduction of a higher level of consciousness gradually transitions Ascensions seamlessly. 

The Third Dimension. 

Human beings currently exist within the Third Dimension where our consciousness is now aware that we are in fact alive. This momentum of self-awareness moves our focus out of the Collective Unconscious and more deeply into the Conscious mind. Psychological patterns often spur a construct where physical, spiritual and egotistical needs graph a new behavioral complex. This new behavioral complex allows for the comprehension of much more profound spiritual concepts; however this newfound analytical function has a tendency to completely ignore what it cannot physically grasp. The realization that there exists an ethereal world with Beings who have much greater influence and power is often what initiates spiritual growth. However, so many disharmonies ensue from conflicting psychological behaviors that spiritual growth is often brought to a complete standstill in favour of physical gratification. Nevertheless, the spiritual world still persists. 

The Third Dimension is the first time consciousness is not only made aware of the Duality, but also heavily influenced into aligning with one or the other side. The Third Dimension often establishes the bedrock for major spiritual upheavals due to its spiritual immaturity. This state no longer represents a perfect symbiotic relationship with Mother Earth and is not self-realized enough to embrace Oneness as a whole, so conscious spiritual development often enters into an ethereal war. Beings of the Light and Dark constantly influence souls to polarize and are often only ever embraced because of their heavy involvement in the physical world. Very few people truly embrace the notions of spirituality or reincarnation, let alone whole sequences of lives in non-human forms. If perception and understanding is limited to a singular life, then the continuation of the soul is not understood and Dimensional evolvements become meaningless. Nothing substantial can ever truly be accomplished if you still believe nothing exists beyond that of a singular life. 

The Fourth Dimension. 

Earth is currently transitioning into the Fourth Dimension. The climax of the upcoming Ascension will be felt towards the end of 2012 as the Year of the Dragon spreads its wings, all the way for the next seven years until 2019. Although the Third Dimension is focused upon the physical world, the Fourth Dimension has a primary focus on the spiritual world. In order to accept this new state of existence, profound elements of the Fourth Dimension were introduced into our Third Dimensional society to lessen the sudden impact of Ascension. Profound spiritual concepts such as Enlightenment and aspects of Unconditional Love must be understood as the next steps to progress from the Third Dimension. These seeds were planted and allowed to grow in individuals who have accepted that it is time to open the doors to the spiritual world. As human beings are the most complex forms of embodied consciousness on the planet, we will still retain our current shape and forms. What will change is the importance we place on achieving such profound spiritual objectives. The 2012-2019 Ascension will mark a turning point leading to spirituality playing a much more dominant role in society with less fixation on a solely material world. The Fourth Dimension follows the Third Dimension in its way of life; the difference is what is placed upon the core belief structures of those living within it. 

Ascension utilizes two primary methods in order for a successful transition to take place: Deconstruction followed by Reconstruction. This Ascension is currently moving through the process of a powerful Deconstruction phase absolutely tearing apart what we once considered normal life. What is truly remarkable is how the Deconstruction phase tailors itself to the individual’s needs. Each negative habit, self-limiting belief, fixation upon the physical world and destructive tendency has been or will be uprooted in the most personalized way. There will be personal bankruptcies, corporate liquidations, divorces, tax problems, health concerns and all types of emotional issues. The world needs to embrace Deconstruction as something perfectly acceptable, comparable to the movements of Mother Nature. In the same way that a tree sheds old leaves and grows new shoots, the human being must shed limiting beliefs and replace them with Unconditional Love. What constrains us and shackles us upon this Earth is our egotistical behavior. However, once the dust settles and you realize how little of the physical world there is left to grasp, you will inevitably venture into the spiritual world, and there is no turning back when this happens. 

The Fifth Dimension. 

The Fifth Dimension is the home of the Ascended Masters. It is a very powerful frequency, compared to the Third Dimension. Physicality is now an option where a world of high frequency energy becomes the primary way of life. The human body becomes far too constraining for a high frequency Being who likes to constantly exert its energy and power. It therefore undergoes a substantial vibrational raising until it completely detaches itself from the physical world. There are ethereal planets that house such Fifth Dimensional existences as they still need an ascending planet to give them Ascension jumps into the next Dimension. 

The planetary relationship with its inhabitants is a very crucial one that operates on many levels. One of the most important functions is to initiate a natural curve of shifting energies in a direct incline, or what is known as a “jump.” It would be very difficult for a planet’s inhabitants to Ascend without it following suit and vice versa. Enough time is usually given for everybody to prepare themselves. Many Ascended Masters who operate in this higher frequency have to severely decrease their vibration in order to make an appearance on Earth. This often warrants brief encounters unless they choose to temporarily incarnate here. 

The Sixth Dimension. 

Sixth Dimensional existences welcome consciousness into a state where Godlike powers are expressed. The Sixth Dimension is the highest point of individualization within the first Universal cycle that still identifies and communicates with itself from all of its past lives. If I told you that you currently already exist in the Sixth Dimension as a Higher Self, you would probably be confused because the concept of linear time has defined physical life itself. However the notion of all the past, present and future being One as a Higher Self is an important hierarchy that establishes a route for intuition to take place. Very few Beings maintain a human-like appearance in the Sixth Dimension. 

Most resemble large masses of white energy, have animal-like characteristics or completely manipulate the way they look depending on what emotional experiences they would like to portray. Sixth Dimensional Beings often roam around lower vibrational planets in hopes of exerting influence upon them. This is done to sway entire populations into believing in significantly more powerful Beings or Gods. It is a Sixth Dimensional teaching to sway the masses into their favor to initiate a stronger hierarchy of power. The greater the number believing in them, the greater their powerful presence will be. Famous Sixth Dimensional Beings include Zeus and the Greek Gods and Thoth of Ancient Egypt. 
The Seventh Dimension. 

The Seventh Dimension looks like a magnificent white tunnel of energy that explodes consciousness into a state of existence with the Creator. This large upward flow of energy removes the soul from Creation itself and allows it to exist within a field of Unconditional Love. The Seventh Dimension acts as the last Dimension most forms of consciousness will experience in their Universal cycle. This limitless Dimension appears as an endless field of white energy where everything enjoys heightened ecstasy. Many Beings have never progressed beyond this point and therefore don’t understand that there is a continuing path to further develop their consciousness. 

Those who continue onward have a very powerful destiny to become Creators. Dimensions Eight to Twelve would be considered advanced Creator School, which is experienced by a much smaller percentage of Beings. In order for consciousness to progress beyond the first Seven Dimensions, they are initiated back into the Creation in the Eighth Dimension to take one of two paths–the Masculine progression as a Sun/Star or the Feminine progression as a Planet. The Masculine progression uses the Eighth Dimension to keep propelling forward up to the 12th Dimension, while the Feminine progression moves backward out of the Eighth Dimension and into an alternate existence as a Seventh Dimensional Planet. 

Seventh Dimensional Beings choose to allow their bodies to evolve into Planets to act as a home for other Dimensional existences; from Dimensions One through Five. This is performed to create a stable environment and encourage the relevant self-realizations of other Dimensional Beings. It is important to establish the symbiotic relationship between all the Dimensional Beings on Earth and the soul of the Planet itself (often referred to as Gaia). Without Gaia, life would not exist. A thriving Planet must have a Seventh Dimensional soul in the same way a human body must have a Third Dimensional soul. Without her inhabitants, Gaia would not have reason to create Earth because her spiritual realizations involve sustaining other Dimensional existences. 

In order to create a physical Planet, Gaia needed to learn how to control the elements (Earth, Wind, Fire, Water) and then manipulate them into self-sustaining cycles. Energetic structures such as the process of reincarnation are created well before the physical environment ever materializes. A Seventh Dimensional Being undergoes four Ascensions before reconnecting with the Seventh Dimensional tunnel of energy back into the field of Unconditional Love; Second Dimension to Third Dimension, Third Dimension to Fourth Dimension, Fourth Dimension to Fifth Dimension, and Fifth Dimension into a pure energetic existence capable of moving back into a state of Unconditional Love. 

The Eighth Dimension. 

We were created from the stars and we shall return to the stars. Eighth Dimensional existence within a Masculine progression is when consciousness takes the form of a Sun. The Sun in our Solar System has a gravitational pull strong enough to revolve around multiple Seventh Dimensional Planets and therefore, all manner of lower Dimensional inhabitants living on those Planets. Its primary function is to provide a stable Solar System for lower Dimensional Beings to undergo their relevant self-realizations. 

The Sun’s light actually consists of multiple colors with a visual predominance of white, even though it may look yellow from Earth due to the blue atmospheric contrast. The Sun is literally burning thoughts into the Manifested Creation on such a powerful level that it produces an extreme amount of light and heat. These thoughts are also referred to as the overriding archetypes that govern a Solar System’s precise rules of governance. The Sun anchors the Collective Unconscious. The Collective Unconscious connects these overriding archetypes with the individual’s Subconscious mind. In such a way, we are born with set rules that determine the construct of the physical world. We feel the effects of gravity because the overriding archetype subconsciously details how our bodies must abide by the Law of Gravity. The Sun is creating and sustaining life as the alpha Being of this Solar System. If you understand the inner-workings of this concept, you can easily see why many ancient cultures such as the Mayans, Egyptians and Greeks chose the Sun as their supreme Deity. 

The Ninth Dimension. 

The Ninth Dimension is entered by exploding your elements outward into a powerful ball of churning energy as a Supernova. The Ninth Dimension signals the first of two complete Dimensional existences that sustain Deconstructive cycles. A Sun dies down into what is known as a Red Giant after it runs out of hydrogen to convert into helium via nuclear fusion. Nuclear fusion is what generates heat for the Sun. When the Sun stops producing heat, it starts collapsing in on itself until the helium atoms join with carbon atoms expanding its outer layer, causing it to cool off and eventually casts this outer layer off as a planetary nebula. This Deconstruction phase allows for essential building blocks in the planetary nebula to be ejected out of the Sun into the surrounding Galaxy. 

The planetary nebula is a product of Deconstruction that has been recycled out of the Sun and allows for new stars and planets to be created. Gravity continues to pull carbon atoms together until the Red Giant’s core is solely composed of iron. At this point, fusion ceases and the iron atoms are crushed together causing the Red Giant to explode out a shockwave and form a Supernova. Another path occurs when a Sun gradually dies down into a White Dwarf and attracts another Star into its orbit. Matter is gradually stripped off the smaller Star, which causes enough volatility to then also explode into a Supernova. The Ninth Dimension is about embracing the element of Deconstruction. 

The Tenth Dimension. 

The Tenth Dimension is entered when a Supernova continues its Deconstructive phase and forms a Black Hole. A Supernova undergoes a gravitational collapse directly into a Black Hole after running out of materials to fuel its existence. A second path exists where the Supernova dies down into a Neutron Star, only then to undergo gravitational collapse once the Neutron Star dies and also forms into a Black Hole. Black Holes are one of the most sacred and powerful Universal mechanisms in existence. They are the epitome of the Deconstruction phase, consuming surrounding materials, dust, stars, planets and even light into its energetic core. 

The observable power of a Black Hole comes forth when it joins two separate points in the Universe together. This bridging action creates implicit ties with both sides as energies are now within proximity of each other. A Tenth Dimensional Being understands that to exist within this Universe is to just consume resources in order to experience growth. Growth of a Black Hole occurs as it continues consuming extremely large quantities of surrounding materials. It therefore releases anything other than what it truly means to exist as a consuming mechanism so it can propel into the next Dimension without hesitation. 

The Eleventh Dimension. 

The 11th Dimension can only be entered once multiple Black Holes have conjoined together to form into what is known as a Supermassive Black Hole. This compilation of resources becomes extremely vital for a sustainable Ascension into the 11th Dimension. A Supermassive Black Hole entering the 11th Dimension starts to emit a powerful torrent of energy outwards from its stockpile of resources into what is known as a Quasar. A Quasar is a ring of bright fiery light that sits above the Supermassive Black Hole and illuminates the entire Galaxy. The amount of energy in a Quasar is so powerful that the entire Galaxy clusters and moves within a singular spiralling formation. Supermassive Black Holes are like giant power generators keeping a Galaxy alive by reverse thrusting out all of its previously stored energy. 

A Supermassive Black Hole does not connect two separate points of the Universe together, but acts to connect the Universe to the Unmanifest (also referred to as Nothingness). The Unmanifest is the polar opposite of Unconditional Love. The Unmanifest is where Creators initiate a Universe; it is the place where nothing exists, nothing transpires and nothing can do anything. Supermassive Black Holes are the centers of Galaxies that tie together the Manifested Creation with the Unmanifest, and in doing so anchors the Universe in place. 

As a Galaxy, the 11th Dimension marks the final Dimension of existence in the Manifested Creation. The final realization comes forth when an 11th Dimensional Being discovers the true nature of the limitless state that Creators exist in, rather than the outdated need to mimic Creation by consuming and burning resources to sustain itself and others around it. When an 11th Dimensional Being comes upon its final realization, the flow of resources from the Supermassive Black Hole is allowed to run out and the Galaxy ceases to exist. Remnant particles and materials allow for the formation of new Galaxies; however, the original entity is no longer within the Creation. It moves out of Creation and into a truly beautiful and limitless state, or what is known as Unconditional Love. 

In the beginning, there was only Unconditional Love followed by a seed of light that sparked the first Creator School. Unconditional Love is completely self-sustainable and the absolute highest form of energy known to existence. Creators are obsessed with the field of Unconditional Love. It’s almost like finding a partner you view as absolutely perfect in every possible way. It sparked an incredible curiosity to discover where this field of Unconditional Love came from and what unique characteristics attracted them so much. Creations were brought to life to observe the nature of this energy in the most rudimentary of forms and went so far as to even allow Dark energies into their Creations to observe its reactions further. The fact that souls are still floating upwards towards Unconditional Love despite the Dark influences is what makes Creation truly remarkable. 

The Twelfth Dimension. 

The 12th Dimension is one of Creators. It is the Graduation ceremony of Creator School. The Universal cycle comes completely around and existence itself becomes voluntary. Limitless potential is expressed and you now have the capability to exist as One with Unconditional Love or go on to create other Universes. Mastering the 12th Dimension may take multiple Universal cycles to achieve; we therefore enter Creation many times over. There are 12th Dimensional Masters who have been able to maintain an individualized presence within the Manifested Creation even though their main body of consciousness no longer has a need for it. These Beings are known as the Master complex as they provide a hierarchy for other Beings to follow them out of Creation. 

Nothingness is where the initial idea of a Universe is conceived. From this initial thought, a series of complex inter-weaving energy patterns are replicated into the blueprints of the Universe. This initial design is powerful enough to create a self-sustainable Creation that draws upon Unconditional Love to experience growth. A Supermassive Black Hole is then used to bridge Nothingness to the Universe in order to stabilize the Universe’s existence. This process indicates an illogical jump from Nothingness to suddenly creating the Universe and then bridging the two. The Universal Bridge only appears once both extremes of polarity are created. It explains why an 11th Dimensional Being may not just Ascend out of Creation, it must exit Creation through the extreme realization as a Creator. It also explains why we may not perceive anything before the Creation of this Universe; Nothingness prevents us conceivably moving back out of Creation. The most accepted pathway for any Being is to therefore Ascend forwards and graduate from Creator School. By then, all of this will feel rudimentary in comparison to the amount of Unconditional Love you will be feeling.

What is the Matrix?

by Keith Varnum – 
The question alone invites intrigue and wonder. The Morphogenic Unified Field. The space-time continuum. The Wave. Oneness. Grace. Home. There are no barriers to the expression of this energy and there are no limitations for it. The limitations are in your own mind and with practice you transcend these limitations.

The Matrix goes by many names.

Some scientific. Some mystical. All magical. Why? Because the mere mention of the word opens doorways! Doorways that can’t be easily shut once cracked ajar. Not because you aren’t able to re-seal the portal. You just don’t want to. Once someone’s glimpsed the City of Light, you can’t get ’em back to the farm! The game is too exciting. The adventure too electric. The journey too enticing.

The Matrix is the master blueprint of the Universe.

The energetic infrastructure of the world we live in. Our human structures aren’t built with wood and nails. Our physical world is created with energy and beliefs. Condensed energy is the basic construction material. Our beliefs nail this energy in place. The result is the Matrix.

Find a way to enter the Matrix and you can re-construct your world!

Why would you want to do that? Well, your daily existence may not be all that you want it to be. You might want more abundance, ease, health or joy in some aspect of your life.

How do you enter the Matrix to change your world?

This is the main purpose of all scientific and spiritual endeavor. This is the focus of every complex experiment and ancient ritual. Cracking the entry code of the construction of the Universe is the goal of all modern technology and of all sacred tradition.

Eureka!

The scientist has found a break-in point via quantum physics! The mystic has discovered an entrance via deep meditation! And guess what, Dorothy? We aren’t in Kansas anymore!

These two vastly different approaches to the same goal bump into each other in the “middle distance.” Strangers in the night. Lovers in the Light. What a surprise. Dare I say shock! In fact, only recently have the two exploratory missions begun to recognize their similarities—in method and in result.

Time to Lift the Veil

We haven’t recognized the common elements between the scientific and the spiritual methods because of the core secret nature of the Matrix itself. The Matrix is veiled! Concealed. Hidden behind centuries of dusty and rusty beliefs! A Matrix explorer has to see through the misleading surface appearance of the way the Matrix shows up in the explorer’s world!
Once you can sense the true inner nature of life beneath the outer forms, you see the commonality of every effort to penetrate the Matrix. You feel the unity of all approaches to understanding life. You realize the oneness of all attempts to find human happiness, health and harmony. And you see that not only is everyone actually using the same fishing line, they’re catching the same fish! No matter how different the surface appearance of the catch.
You see all parties crossing the same finish line. No matter how distant the location in space. You see that they all value the same bottom line. No matter how divergent their expression of success.

You see Einstein and the Elders eating the same bagel. A round symbol of the movement of all life. A representation of the essential nature of the Matrix. – A spiral of free-flowing energy! Our intention to have a bagel focuses free-flowing life energy into condensed physical matter with the label “bagel.”

The Key to Unlock Miracles

The key to merging with the Matrix is becoming fluid enough to flow into the Matrix energy field. Once there, your experience is transformed into whatever your current harmony is. You can become this flexible and malleable by many means, modern and ancient. Your inner guidance or intuition can lead you to the perfect portal for you!

Do You React or Respond to Life?

by Paul Coutinho, SJ –

Stephen Covey, in ‘The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People’, shares an experience that he once had while traveling on the New York subway. Imagine you are riding the subway early one morning, and everybody appears to be comfortable — people are drinking their coffee, reading their newspapers and magazines, working on their laptops, talking on their cell phones. Everything is normal and peaceful. 
At each station, a few people get off, a few people get on, everything is calm and sedate, until the train stops at a particular station and a man walks onto your train car with his little children. He finds seats for them and then sits down in a reflective mood. While he is in deep meditation, the children begin to run up and down the aisle, screaming and shouting, running all over the train car.
How do you feel? 
Are you mad at the man? Why are you mad? You are perhaps thinking, This man should take care of his children in public. If he does not know how to take care of children, why did he have them in the first place! Are you mad at the children for making so much noise? Spoiled kids! you might think. You notice there is no mother. Now you might be thinking, I bet the mother left this man with these undisciplined children. 
See yourself going up to this irresponsible father and confronting him, saying, “Excuse me, sir, would you mind tending to your children? They’re being so disruptive and I think everybody is getting a little upset.” The man looks up at you and says, “Two hours ago these children lost their mother in the hospital. She just died and ever since then I have been trying to explain to them the death of their mother and their only reaction is this.”
Now how do you feel? 
The children are still jumping up and down, screaming and shouting but now you feel terrible. You feel guilty. You feel sorry for the man, you feel sorry for the children and you feel bad about their mother. You might even feel upset with yourself for feeling negatively about the father and his children.
I give you this example to demonstrate the power of our beliefs. 

Emotions are not caused by situations. Emotions are caused by our beliefs about situations, beliefs that color our perception and our understanding of events.

In this example, the children are still jumping up and down and shouting but some of us have moved from being upset to feeling sad, compassionate and concerned. Others may still feel angry because they believe that children should always behave in public. Beliefs cause emotions that trigger behavior.

If we feel angry about a situation and react in anger, it is because we have angry beliefs about it. If we feel compassionate, it is because we have compassionate beliefs.


Situations in themselves do not produce feelings. 

It is our perception of the situation that makes us feel good or bad. Just as situations cannot make us happy or sad, another person cannot make us feel happy or sad. We choose to be happy or sad.

If we seek greater freedom in our lives, we need to be objective and rational about the power of our beliefs versus the power of situations. We control our emotions. When we live in freedom, we choose the way we respond rather than let our automatic destructive reactions get the better of us.

Now you might ask, “Okay, but how do I do this? How do I choose to respond when I am under pressure, when I have been taught to fear or fight, when the situation seems ‘bad’ to me?” 
The “PQR formula” can help us live freely in stressful, anxious or depressing situations. 

Pause – Question – Respond
We pause to question how we would like to respond rather than react and live to regret our negative reaction. Let me try to explain what I mean by react: You push; I shove. Without thinking, I shove. This is my reaction. It is immediate and disconnected from my higher Self, the constant “I” and the meaning of my life. My reaction is an imprisoned effect. This is not freedom.
By applying the PQR formula, however, I can respond. I pause (find myself in the situation), question (How does this situation relate to the meaning of my life? How do I wish to respond given a world of infinite possibilities?) and then respond (a freely chosen action — not a reaction). 
Responding rather than reacting helps us live freely and in greater harmony with our true identity in every situation. It helps us grab hold of the freedom we seek in order to enter into the river of divine life.

Seeing Through Defeat and Discouragement

by Guy Finley – 

The more you know, the farther you can see, so take as long as you need with the following Higher Lesson and allow yourself to see something new about the true nature of discouragement. Then watch how a new and greater personal freedom dawns in your life.
The only purpose discouraged feelings serve is to keep your thoughts on what you can’t do. And with your attention fixed in this fashion on the impossible, there’s no room for discovering what is possible — for what you can do.
Let’s cover this important discovery one more time.
The only thing that discouraged feelings do is to keep you busy doing nothing except feeling sorry for yourself, which is the perfect guarantee that your sorry situation will remain hopelessly the same. Enough is enough! You don’t have to put up with one more discouraged day. That’s right.

There is another choice you can learn to make besides falling into those familiar feelings of failure. Use this next Higher Idea to help you start thinking about those old discouragements in a new way.

Whenever we suffer over what we aren’t able to do, have, win, grasp, or work through, our attention in these moments is always riveted on our own thoughts — thoughts that are busy telling us we’re somehow stuck. Maybe you can recognize some of these heavy-hearted inner voices?

They say in one way or another . . .

  • “I’ll never get out of this mess.” 
  • “I’m too stupid to learn these things.” 
  • “I must have done something terrible to deserve this!” 
  • “There’s no point in going any farther.” 
  • “This is definitely hopeless.”
Now on the surface of things, these all-too-familiar whispers of defeat — these voices that reach our inner ears, speaking to us with our own voice — seem to be genuinely concerned with our unfortunate condition. But a deeper look into their covert operation reveals something totally different. Follow the next four new ideas closely and see something that is both shocking and self-liberating.
1. The more these gloomy voices talk to us, the more discouraged we feel.
2. The more discouraged we feel, the more certain we are that we have no other choice but to feel that way.
3. And the more convinced we are that we have no choice, the less choice we have.
4. These unconscious inner dialogues actually produce the very dead-end we fear!

We end up being able to go no farther with our wish for broader personal horizons because, unbeknownst to ourselves, we now unconsciously believe that there’s no way to get past where it is we perceive ourselves to be limited or tied down.

The key idea in this part of our investigation lies within the word “perceive.”

For the purposes of this study, always remember that the word “perceive” rhymes with deceive. And that’s precisely what this faulty perception is: a self-deception. Here’s proof.
There are no dead ends in Real Life. That’s right. Now here’s why this is true.
There are no dead ends in Real Life because — in any given moment — there is always something Higher to do with your life besides suffering over what you think you can’t have or do or be. Here’s just one example of a Higher Action you can learn to take when faced with the presence of any discouraging inner state.
See that the size of the discouragement you feel is directly proportionate to the size of your insistence that life conform to your demands. Then, having verified this truth for yourself, dare to quietly drop that self-defeating demand.
Now watch in amazement as your discouraged feelings fade away, leaving you with fresh new energies that allow you to not only see a brand new way to proceed with your wish, but which also grant you the strength to begin that next new leg of your quest.
For instance, maybe you’ve felt discouraged because you wanted to learn something new — a higher skill or a difficult lesson — but felt sure that it was beyond your abilities. And so you just resigned yourself to feeling discouraged. While this kind of self-defeating behavior is commonly accepted as natural, it’s totally unnecessary. You can learn to do something Higher.

Instead of falling into those familiar feelings of futility over yourself, try dropping that unconscious demand that you have to be who you think you should be. And then, instead of dwelling in discouragement over who your own thoughts are telling you you’ll never be, get started working on who, and what, you are right now.

In other words, do what’s in your power and refuse to be discouraged about anything else. And keep repeating this new conscious action one step at a time, over and over again. It is in your power to learn whatever it takes — one lesson at a time — and make it all the way to your designated goal.
Here’s one last special thought to help summarize this important life-lesson in liberating ourselves from dark discouragements. Let it reveal a life free of all doubts and despondency:
Any conversation you permit yourself to have with discouraging thoughts guarantees you’ll wind up with a good reason for feeling discouraged. When it comes to any negative thought, the first word you have with it is the same as giving it the last word with you.
Practice these Higher Lessons in self-liberation until you’re free of all feelings of futility. You’ll soon see how this new action gives you the last laugh on discouragement.

The WaySeer Manifesto

ATTENTION: All you rule-breakers, you misfits and troublemakers – all you free spirits and pioneers – all you visionaries and non-conformists … Everything that the establishment has told you is wrong with you – is actually what’s right with you.You see things others don’t. You are hardwired to change the world. Unlike 9 out of 10 people – your mind is irrepressible – and this threatens authority. You were born to be a revolutionary. You can’t stand rules because in your heart you know there’s a better way.


You have strengths dangerous to the establishment – and it wants them eliminated, So your whole life you’ve been told your strengths were weaknesses – Now I’m telling you otherwise.Your impulsivity is a gift – impulses are your key to the miraculous, Your distractibility – is an artifact of your inspired creativity, Your mood swings – reflect the natural pulse of life, they give you unstoppable energy when you’re high and deep soulful insight when you’re low,
Been diagnosed with a “disorder”? That’s society’s latest way to deny it’s own illness by pointing the finger at you. Your addictive personality is just a symptom of your vast underused capacity for heroic, creative expression and spiritual connection. your utter lack of repression, your wide eyed idealism, your unmitigated open mind – didn’t anyone ever tell you?! these are the traits shared by the greatest pioneers and visionaries and innovators, revolutionaries, procrastinators and drama queens, activists on the social scene, space cadets and mavericks, philosophers and derelicts, business suits flying fighter jets, football stars and sex addicts, celebrities with ADD, alcoholics who seek novelty, first responders – prophets and saints, mystics and change agents.
We are – all – the same – you know ‘cuz we’re all affected by the way – We are – all – the same – you know ‘cuz we’re all attracted to the flame – You know in your heart that there’s a natural order to life, something more sovereign than any man-made rules or laws could ever express.

This natural order is called “the Way.”
The Way is the eternal substrate of the cosmos. It guides the very current of time and space. 

The Way is known by some as the Will of God, Divine Providence, the Holy Spirit, the implicate order, the Tao, reverse-entropy, life-force, but for now we’ll simply call it “the Way.” The Way is reflected in you as the source of your inspiration, the source of your passions, your wisdom, your enthusiasm, your intuition, your spiritual fire – love. The Way takes the chaos out of the Universe and breathes life into it by reflecting divine order. The Way, when experienced by the mind, is genius, when perceived through the eyes is beauty, when felt with the senses is grace, when allowed into the heart … is love.
Most people cannot sense the Way directly. … But then there are the Wayseers. The keepers of the flame. Wayseers have an unexplainable knack for just knowing the Way. They sense it in their very being. They can’t tell you why or how they arrived at the right answer. They just know it in their core. They can’t show their work. So don’t ask. Their minds simply resonate with the Way. When the Way is present, so are they.
While others are blind to it and society begs you to ignore it, “the Way” stirs you inside. 

Neurological repression blocks most people’s awareness of the Way – censoring all thoughts and impulses from the unconscious is their prefrontal cortex – the gestapo of the brain –  nothing which violates its socialized programming even gets through; but your mind is different. your mind has been cracked wide open to the Way – by some miraculous genetic trait, some psychotropic chemical or maybe even by the will of your very soul, your brain’s reward pathways have been hijacked – dopamine employed to overthrow the fascist dictatorship of your prefrontal cortex – now your brain is free of repression, your mind free of censorship, your awareness exposed to the turbulent seas of the unconscious – through this open doorway divine light shines into your consciousness showing you the Way. This is what makes you a Wayseer.
90% of human civilization is populated with those who’s brains are blocked to the Way.  Their brains are hardwired to enforce the social programming indoctrinated since birth. Unlike you they cannot break out of this programming, because they have not yet experienced the necessary revolution of mind. These programmed people take social institutions and rules very seriously.

 Society is full of games programmed to keep peoples’ minds occupied so they will not revolt. These games often cause sick fixations on peculiar protocols, power structures, taboos and domination – all subtle forms of human bondage – This distinct form of madness is not only tolerated by the masses but insisted upon. The programmed ones believe in rules so forcefully they become willing to destroy anyone who violates them.

Wayseers are the ones who call their bluff.  

Since Wayseer minds are free to reject social programming, Wayseers readily see social institutions for what they are – imaginary games.  Wayseers comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable. Helping those who are lost in these games and refuse to help themselves is a calling of many Wayseers. Since Wayseers are the ones who keep contact with the original source of reality – they are able to disrupt societal conventions and even governments to realign humanity with the Way.
The Wayseers are an ancient lineage. 

A kind of priesthood – carriers of the flame – ones “in the know.”  There must always be Wayseers to reform the dizzying psychotic spinning gears of society – giant mindless hamster wheels obscuring the pure blue sky, keeping humanity shackled in a darkened cage – so Wayseers are called – to shed light on the madness of society – to continually resurrect the timeless transcendent Spirit of Truth –
Wayseers reveal this divine truth by devoting themselves to the birth of some creative or disruptive act expressed through art or philosophy, innovations to shake up industry, revolutions for democracy, coups that topple hypocrisy, movements of solidarity, changes that leave a legacy, rebellions against policy, spirit infused technology, moments of clarity, things that challenge barbarity, watersheds of sincerity, momentous drives for charity.
We are – all – the same – you know
‘cuz we’re all affected by the way –
We are – all – the same – you know

This is your calling, Wayseer. You’ve found your tribe.

The Mysticism and Mystery of Life

by Dennis Merritt Jones – 

The deepest mystery and perhaps the one for which there will never be an answer that will completely satisfy the itch of the intellect is the miracle of Life itself. In his book The Living Universe, Duane Elgin writes, “American Indian lore speaks of three miracles. The first miracle is that anything exists at all. The second miracle is that living things exist. The third miracle is that living things exist that know they exist. As human beings conscious of ourselves, we represent the third miracle.”
In the normal course of our daily life, these three miracles are all mysteries we seldom take time to contemplate, if ever. We expend much of our time and energy navigating over, under, around, and through the uncertainties of everyday life, relating to the events, conditions and circumstances that come with the territory of living in a human skin.
People travel to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars and they pass by themselves without wondering. –St. Augustine

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change. –Buddha

Witness & Observe Yourself: You Are A Miracle!
The idea that we can be conscious of ourselves as human beings has profound implications. It means that we can become observers of the miracle of our own minds at work. It also means that we can consciously experience that mystical point in space and time when and where our doing merges with our Being.
Stop right now, take a deep intentional breath and then take a peek into your own mind. Simply witness yourself, observe yourself.
When was the last time you paused to do this? Watch your thinking mind process your thoughts and the ideas being presented here, as you read these words.

Observing The Mysticism & Mystery of Life
The fact that when we choose to be fully present in the mystery of the moment, we can be the observer of our own minds means that there is more to us than meets the eye, or the brain — who is it that is doing the observing? This is the moment when the human self and the sacred Self commingle as one, and it is also the miracle of all miracles; that is, that in any given moment we can consciously witness the merging of the human with the Divine realizing, as Ernest Holmes wrote, “What we are looking for, we are looking with.”
This is the mystical moment when we know we have fully entered the mystery of life at a level where uncertainty of anything ceases to exist. The idea of certainty and uncertainty is a human invention. If humankind did not exist, certainty and uncertainty wouldn’t exist, either, because both are a human concern.
deepest mysteryThe Universe, which is Infinite Intelligence, just Is, and It has been operating in its Divine “Is-ness” flawlessly for fourteen billion years and it continues to evolve Itself, expanding at the speed of Light, with no apparent attachment to where it is going or what its future may or may not be.
As we deepen our awareness of our oneness with this expanding Life Force, uncertainty will cease holding us hostage to what lies ahead in the mystery of that which is yet to be. Then, coming to the edge of the unknown becomes a natural part of our journey that will happen repeatedly, with grace and ease. This does not mean the mystery of that which is yet to be will cease — it simply means we have become one with it as it unfolds.

You Are A Miracle — The Miracle & Mystery of Life
Life, itself, is the ultimate mystery. It is a miracle that we shall never fully understand, nor should we try: We appear on the planet one day, coming from the apparent ethers of absolute nothingness, entering Earth School with many questions and no answers.
As we grow and evolve, we spend the balance of our time on the journey as soul beings learning how to navigate through the human condition, gathering the necessary information to create a life worth living through curiosity, inquisitiveness, and experiences motivated by either desperation or inspiration. As we awaken to our true nature, we aspire to create experiences that offer purpose and meaning for the journey.
Then one day, when it is our time, we depart once again, back into the apparent ethers of nothingness from which we came. What is not miraculous and mysterious about that? It is what we do with the miracle and the mystery between the coming and the going that matters. Another way to say it might be: The most precious gift we have ever been given by the Infinite One is the miracle of Life, itself; what we choose to do with this Life is our gift back to the Giver.

Set Yourself Free

by Claudette Rowley

What does it mean to be free? How does one become free?
I believe that individual freedom starts from within and that we each would define it differently. What follows are some guideposts on the path to personal freedom.

Let go of judgment. 

Most of us spend a high percentage of our time judging ourselves and other people. We beat ourselves up for the smallest transgressions and have difficulty forgiving ourselves for the large ones. Our inner critics make up stories about what we “should” and “shouldn’t” be doing or being. They sabotage us through judgments like “who do you think you are?” or “you aren’t good enough” or “what a stupid thing to say”, and other equally destructive comments.

We project the same level of judgment on to other people. I know I’ve done it. Judged someone else, and felt just a little better. It’s the old tear-someone-else-down-so-I-can- feel-better syndrome. It’s the root of gossip and it feeds off of itself. We often judge others so we don’t need to look at ourselves.

Release the rules. 

We are all conditioned into maintaining a set of rules of behavior. This socialization begins in our families, continues in school, with our peers and filters in from society at large. We become adults with set of rules for behavior that sometimes hold us back – keep us chained into an existence that doesn’t work for us. It can be challenging to break free of these “rules”, albeit necessary to live a life of personal freedom.

Here are some examples: 

“Don’t brag.” Now I’m not a fan of bragging. The difficulty with “don’t brag” is that it can get translated in our minds into “don’t accept compliments”, “it’s wrong to say something positive about myself”, and for some people it even gets twisted into “It’s wrong to think highly of myself and my skills and abilities.”

“Be nice,” is another favorite conditioning rule. Again, there’s nothing wrong with being nice when nice is the authentic way to be. “Be nice” can morph into “Always be polite” or “Never, under any circumstances, act anything other than nice” or “Don’t ever express or address your true emotions.”

Sometimes we need to state exactly how we think or feel. The truth is that we are free to express ourselves in a way that’s authentic to us. At times, that expression may be assertive or angry or sad or exuberantly happy. 

Other situations call for us to ask for exactly what we need at the risk of someone else feeling uncomfortable. Sometimes, we just need to be truthful and the truth isn’t always nice.
Letting go of judgment and releasing your rules are two important elements of personal freedom.
