A child of Earth? And a time to grow up...

by Tim Che'

We recently had the opportunity to join a spiritual gathering in the Embudu Caves in northern New Mexico. We had no idea what to expect, and meditating in a cave always sounds good to us, so off we went. There was exactly 12 who showed up, 10 women, 1 man(me, as usual), and a young boy. After a very slow drive down a narrow dirt road along the Rio Grande river, we all met together and walked up to the cave and entered. I was not prepared for what I witnessed.

We walked into a cave of.... Light! Smooth, shaped walls guided us to a larger chamber that reached up to an opening that allowed the light to stream in and fill the cavern. There were several levels and randomly placed cut-outs in the walls for sitting and meditating. It is stunning, warm and inviting womb-space to get grounded or go galactic. This video is about the man who created the cave we were in, but shows some of his more advanced work. We did get a chance to walk into the home shown in the video and that really blew us away! An award nominated short documentary was created about his life and work... you can Google search for that:

This post is not so much about the caves or the beautiful, spiritual ceremony that Karen led us through. It is about the revelation that came as a result of blind, meditative, journaling that percolated something to the surface for me that had been nagging at me from within, yet unsure of its identity and its expression....

Taming the Wild Ass...

You will be transformed by a renewal of your mind. 
The Renewal of the mind is the Awakening of your Imagination. 

by Tim Che'

You know... that part of your brain that can see things even with the eyes closed? That can hear the good news from a friend that is thousands of miles away... that can Feel the health of a loved one from anywhere in the world. The same part of the mind that can create something out of nothing. The Imagination. It's awakening comes to you as a "wild ass"... something that is raw, unbridled, difficult to tame and seemingly impossible to ride.  

But that is exactly what you are called upon to do. Tame the "wild ass" and ride your Imagination triumphantly to the expression of your desires.

Your awakening happens at the crossroads... always at the crossroads, where the past and the future intersect with the rising dimensions of your entire, eternal being.

When you first attempt to mount this wild animal, this untamed imagination, you will be captivated and exhilarated by its power and possibilities. AND it will easily throw you off like trying to break a
thoroughbred stallion. This is where you will learn the focus, the intention, the humility, and the importance of controlling your meandering mental moods, emotions, patterns and distractions. Until you triumphantly ride that 'wild ass' into your imagined outcome... your Jerusalem.

You will naturally relinquish your previous concepts of truth and dismantle the ideas that you formerly championed, for you will Pass-Over to a new state of consciousness. Then the "New Man" can ride that wild beast into the glory of a high mood, for you must hold a high mood if you are to walk with those who dwell in such a place.

You will do this, unaided by any "other". No religious men, no "New Age" system or guru can help or is necessary. When the Imagination awakes, it will seem obvious to you.

And as you wipe the sleep from your eyes, the brotherhood of awakened humanity will applaud, from the unseen realms, for the return of their prodigal brother and for your riches of experience and contrast, which is a tide that

The Abraham-Hicks video that would not play you can find on Lifestyle Luminaries YouTube channel as well as the presentation video The presentation got lengthy and rushed toward the end where we glossed over some pretty big topics. Because of that and the video problems, we decided to break this up into 3 presentations, soon to be released.

Needy Relationships Breed Conflict...

In a culture that has developed into a 'Needs-Based' society, this quote from J Krishnamurti points out the absurdity:

"...Relationship based on mutual need brings only conflict. However interdependent we are on each other, we are using each other for a purpose, for an end. With an end in view, relationship is not. You may use me and I may use you. In this usage, we lose contact. A society based on mutual usage is the foundation of violence. When we use another, we have only the picture of the end to be gained. The end, the gain, prevents relationship, communion. In the usage of another, however gratifying and comforting it may be, there is always fear. To avoid this fear, we must possess. From this possession there arises envy, suspicion, and constant conflict. Such a relationship can never bring about happiness. A society whose structure is based on mere need, whether physiological or psychological, must breed conflict, confusion, and misery. Society is the projection of yourself in relation with another, in which the need and the use are predominant. When you use another for your need, physically or psychologically, in actuality there is no relationship at all; you really have no contact with the other, no communion with the other. How can you have communion with the other when the other is used as a piece of furniture, for
your convenience and comfort? So, it is essential to understand the significance of relationship in daily life." - Krishnamurti, The Book of Life

To Live With Effort is Evil...

What do Bruce Lee, Abraham-Hicks and J. Krisnamurti have in common?

Here, J, Krishnamurti sets us all straight and dismantles our illusions around Effort. The Abraham-Hicks video, at the bottom of the article, is all about the law of attraction as it relates to MONEY, and the only, so called, ACTION that is needed is an internal, imaginative alignment which leads one to ALLOWANCE... the action of rest. We think this quote and the video go well together.

"As I was saying, if we do not understand the nature of effort, all action is limiting. Effort creates its own frontiers, its own objectives, its own limitations. Effort has the time-binding quality. You say, 'I must meditate, I must make an effort to control my mind'. 

 That very effort to control puts a limit on your mind. 

Do watch this, do think it out with me. To live with effort is evil; to me it is an abomination, if I may use a strong word. And if you observe, you will realize that from childhood on we are conditioned to make an effort. In our so-called education, in all the work we do, we struggle to improve ourselves, to become something. Everything we undertake is based on effort; and the more effort we make, the duller the mind becomes.Where there is effort, there is an objective; where there is effort, there is a limitation on attention and on action. To do good in the wrong direction is to do evil. Do you understand? For centuries we have done 'good' in the wrong direction by assuming that we must be this, we must not be that, and so on, which only creates further conflict."
 Krishnamurti, Collected Works, Vol. XI,229,Action

Lately, we have had a lot of discussion around the misconception that says that you only have value if

The Mind and Motion Universe

Probably the greatest mind of the 20th century, Walter Russell is one of those rare individuals who mastered all the arts; music, painting, sculpture, architecture, swimming, horsmanship and finally... what we call "science" and he refers to his 'cosmogony of the universe'.
All of this without any formal education!

A book called, "The Man Who Tapped the Secrets of the Universe" gives a condensed account of his life and is worthy of your attention.

I was recently toying with the idea of getting Water Russell's book, The Secret of Light, and thought I would ask for it for Christmas. Well, I never got around to asking any "People" for it, but the Universe heard me! As I stumbled upon the book, now in the public domain, and downloaded it from the online library

The following is an excerpt from Walter Russell's book, Atomic Suicide which we have just recently dug into. The beginning of the book is fantastic and then he gets into lots of evidence details about why nuclear energy will end humankind, possibly forever... but you can skip ahead to chapter 4. Here in chapter 4, he gets into some juicy explanations of The Zero Universe of Cause, which is stillness... and the Universe of Effect, which is motion. You can download the book here  This is some of the most important understandings of the nature of everything that we have come across. You can also support his work by purchasing the books from the foundation charged with keeping the Russell's work alive, or making a donation


The True Nature of This Mind and Motion Universe

In the heart of every man is the desire for love--for happiness, peace and prosperity. In the hearts of nations of men is the One-World desire for international unity. Universal Brotherhood is the ultimate world-goal. How far are we from that goal? The distance is far ahead for the human race. Its distance is

The Battle of Armageddon...

The Conflict Between the Intellect and the Awakened Imagination. 
 by Tim Che'

The book of Revelation is not about the end of the world. It is about the end of a state of consciousness.

It is a colorful description of the end of the era dominated by the intellectual, sense oriented man...  The birth of the Imagination in Man... And the conflict between these 2 great armies.

That conflict is called Armageddon.

In the beginning it is said the Man (Adam) fell... into a profound sleep... and nowhere in the bible does it say he woke up. That awakening is recorded in the New Testament, which is the description of the birth of the Imagination and its expression as allegorical picture-lessons.

In Man's sojourn here on "Earth", he must first enter "The Red Sea" of emotions. This emotional man looks at the world and reacts with emotion. He does not yet realize that his reactions are creations of future events. These are the "Dark Ages" where emotional-man suffers in his ignorance. Until the Intellect begins to develop.

Man then enters "The Land of Egypt"... the Adolescence of consciousness. The intellect that develops out of the emotional Man seeks its foundation in the factually oriented and relates everything to his 5 senses, ie; "I'll believe it if I can see it". Man at this level sees problems as a challenge to the mind, and learns to first understand the problem in order formulate a solution. The problems are seen as external and the mind looks for external causes and external solutions.

Out of the intellect, glimmers of truth begin to crystallize. Causation becomes less clear and confusing. Physicists are well known for the paradoxes and head-scratching conundrums surrounding their theories. They begin to see evidence

A Mind of Light...

"I don't care that they stole my idea... 
I care that they don't have any of their own"

Think about this quote.

What kind of person would say such a thing? ...Would care more about the quandary of men sound asleep, than the world changing outcomes from the inspirations of his own imaginings?

Such a man, IS Nikola Tesla.

I say IS because to say WAS is to assume that such a man, such a consciousness, is no more, and that would be sad indeed.

That consciousness, would be the mind of light, the enLIGHTened, the Buddha mind, the Christ mind. It is eternal, yet not always "occupied" or expressed. 

It takes a human to express the mind of God. Occupying the mind of light is the highest expression and that expression is one with God and IS God.

Most of the quotes attributed to Tesla (and Einstein) that you find floating around the internet, are unlikely actual. As with anything in the WEB, one must be very discerning and sift through the desert sands of convenient conjecture, and keep that which is in harmony with the light. 

The following is an alleged interview with Tesla. I have no idea if it is actual, but there is enough truth-expanding nuggets of wisdom to make it worth your review.

Here, I have highlighted some quotes from the interview that I find evokes truth to me. The entire interview follows these excerpts:

"What is considered as empty space is just a manifestation of matter that is not awakened...No empty space on this planet, nor in the Universe."

"Matter is an expression of infinite forms of Light, because energy is older than it."

Our Valentine's Day wish for you:

"That you may Become Love"

 To know love you must inquire.
Answers are implied in questions, so ask yourself, "What is Love?"

Asking yourself this one question, over and over and over again, is the most trans-formative activity that an individual can engage in. Years ago, I became obsessed with this question, in a way that is impossible to put into words.


...Was it just a feeling? What was that feeling? Where was I feeling the sensations? What were those sensations? Is it a feeling of possession? of Security? of relief?  Is love pleasure? Is love infatuation? Is it adoration? Is love just an emotion? What is it to "fall" into Love? How does Love work? Are there really different kinds of Love? I love my parents and I love my dog, I love my car, I love certain foods, I love my children and my friends, I love being in nature etc, etc... Is this love all the same? Is love greater for one than another? Are there different levels of Love? What is it to love a country, or maybe a song?

Become Love...

To know something spiritually, you must Become it.

To know something intellectually, man uses his mind to break it down into its parts, observe its
relationships and behaviors, collect information, analyse and relate the data to all previous collected data. Thinking is VERY limited because thought is all built upon the past. Thought can have an idea about something, like 'chocolate', for instance... but until you actually taste it, you really do not know what it is like. Thought cannot come upon anything that is new... just different and usually more complex arrangements of what it has already thought about.

Thought can never Know Love... 
it can only think about it.

 So, to know love we must become it, which is the greatest of mankind's endeavors.

Ah yes... and then there is Valentines Day. In contrast to Man's pinnacle of knowledge (knowing Love), Valentines Day seems a bit childish and silly. But we learn we can love the silliness and embrace the childishness when we grow up our spiritual selves and put away the relationships and so-called love, that is based upon self-gratification.

 Here, Krishnamurti explains it well:

"The process of thought ever denies love. It is thought that has emotional complications, not love. Thought is the greatest hindrance to love. Thought creates a division between what is and 'what should be', and on this division morality is based; but neither the moral nor the immoral know love. This moral structure, created by the mind to hold social relationships together, is not love, but a hardening process like that of cement. Thought does not lead to love, thought does not cultivate love, for love cannot be cultivated as a plant in the garden. The very desire to cultivate love is the action of thought. If you are at all aware, you will see what an important part thought plays in your life. Thought obviously has its place, but it is in no way related to love. What is related to thought can be understood by thought, but that which is not related to thought cannot be caught by the mind. You will ask, then what is love? Love is a state of being in which thought is not; but the very definition of love is a process of thought, and so it is not love. We have to understand thought itself, and not try to capture love by thought. The denial of thought does not bring about love. There is freedom from thought only when its deep significance is fully understood; and, for this, profound self-knowledge is essential, not vain and superficial assertions. Meditation and not repetition, awareness and not definition, reveal the ways of thought. Without being aware and experiencing the ways of thought, love cannot be."

You Can Choose Love...

You can choose to be right... 
or you can choose to be in love.

The voice of self-righteousness is the
only voice you will hear in hell. 

If you think you are right and you hear righteousness coming out of your mouth, then you know who you are and you know where you are standing.

And justifying your righteousness is just more hell. 

It may be challenging to fully grasp this concept, so lets start with a simple question:

Have you ever met anyone who thought they were wrong? 

Of course not! Everyone has come to conclusions based on ALL their life's experience. If I could possibly know all the things that someone had experienced... all their beliefs, all their education, all their exposure to other's opinions, everything they've read, all the TV they've watched, etc, etc...for their entire life, which led them to their conclusion... I would see how they think they ARE right! The fact that you and I can have radically different conclusions about the same subject is, well... sort of crazy! We both could be looking at a glass on the table and have such different opinions about it that it comes to violence. This is the force and the lunacy behind all

What Happens when the Industry of Entertainment Takes Over...

"When you have been brought up from childhood to amuse yourself and escape from yourself through entertainment, religious or otherwise, and when most of the psychologists say that you must express everything you feel and that any form of holding back or restraint is detrimental, leading to  various forms of neuroticism, you naturally enter more and more into the world of sport, amusement and entertainment...

all helping you to escape from yourself, from what you actually are.

When the industry of entertainment takes over, as it is gradually doing now, when the young people, the students, the children, are constantly instigated to pleasure, to fancy, to romantic sensuality, the words restraint and austerity are pushed away, never even given a thought.

I am not talking about the austerity of the monks, the sannyasis, who deny the world, who clothe their bodies with some kind of uniform or just a cloth—this denial of the material world is surely not austerity.

You probably won’t even listen to this, to what the implications of austerity are.  The understanding of the nature of what you are, without any distortions, without any bias, without any reactions
to what you discover you are, is the beginning of austerity."  - Krishnamurti, Krishnamurti to Himself, pp 47-48

The Facts about Facts...

by Tim Che'

Facts always follow... They never precede. 

In other words, when one looks at a fact, any fact at all, something came before the fact that made it a fact. 

"Things which are seen were not made of things which do appear"(Heb 3:9)

 That thing, the thing that all things come from, is consciousness, aka "light" 
Lesser known, and more accurately defined as the Imagination

"All things were made by it; and without it was not anything made that was made" (John 1:3)

 Here we are establishing causality. You have to decide right here, right now, whether you are a cause, or the effect of a cause. There is no kinda-sorta-maybe about it. To accept yourself as the cause comes with the ultimate responsibility, and goes against EVERYTHING that you have been taught. It opposes the logical, rational mind... and almost EVERYONE will think you are crazy. Stop reading now if you are not open to the possibility that You are the cause.

"Material substance is but the shadow of the Imagination that brought it about."(Neville). 

 When you look at the world around you, what you see has more to do with the arrangement of your
mind and less to do

Is Thinking the Only Way to Use the Mind?

by Tim Che'

"We are what we think. 
All that we are arises with our thoughts. 
With our thoughts, we make the world."
(Allegedly the Buddha)

This quote is generally accepted as a "truth", as it is presented, in the 'New age' movement and it is particularly appealing to the intellectual part of the mind. You know... the part that likes to "think".  Most likely this quote was translated by a thinking mind as it made sense to the thinker.

It is interesting to observe that the Buddha, and Buddhist teachings, clearly advocates, and are associated with, the meditative state of "no thinking". Yet, here he is said to claim that thinking is what we are!? And that "ALL that we are arises with our thoughts". And "with our thoughts we make the world".

Hmmmm... so let me get this straight: Thinking creates my world and it is what I am. Basically it’s everything!  But, we are to go through extraordinary measures and disciplines, for maybe 20 or more years, to learn to,  NOT THINK?


Disclaimer: This writer is in no way  claiming to be any kind of expert on the Buddha or Buddhism. The writer is only expressing his own revelation as it has been presented to him. If you are in disagreement with any statements in this article, the writer is agreeable to leave you with them in peace.

I am guessing that the "thinking" minds really love this Buddha translation:
" Look! See how great thinking is!"
 But is this quote true and is it what the Buddha really said and meant? There is clearly a conflict with this quote’s interpretation and the teachings, so let us explore it.

Images in the Mind...

Thinking is a tool. 
Yet, it is a lesser tool than the gift of the Imagination.
You can Imagine something.
That is a creative action.
You can think about what you Imagined and that is a re-action.
Thinking is always in response to something. Either from the "outside" world, or often in response to itself.
As a tool, thinking can enhance or be useful to a creative act of Imagination.
Losing control of the thinking tool can be very destructive.
Proceed with caution! Be patiently aware and assert your mastery of the tools of your mind.

Mental Diets...

 Dare You to Read This Every Night Before You Go to Bed and See What Happens!

Neville Goddard  1955


Talking to oneself is a habit everyone indulges in. We could no more stop talking to ourselves than we could stop eating and drinking. All that we can do is control the nature and the direction of our inner conversations. Most of us are totally unaware of the fact that our inner conversations are the causes of the circumstance of our life.

We are told that "as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." But do we know that man's thinking
follows the tracks laid down in his own inner conversations? To turn the tracks to which he is tied in the direction in which he wants to go, he must put off his former conversation, which is called in the Bible the Old Man, and be renewed in the spirit of his mind. Speech is the image of mind; therefore, to change his mind, he must first change his speech. By 'speech' is meant those mental conversations we carry on with ourselves.

The world is a magic circle of infinite possible mental transformations. For there are an infinite number of possible mental conversations. 

When man discovers the creative power of inner talking, he will realize his function and his mission in life. Then he can act to a purpose. Without such knowledge, he acts unconsciously. Everything is a manifestation of the mental conversations which go on in us without our being aware of them. But as civilized beings, we must become aware of them and act with a purpose.

A man's mental conversations attracts his life. As long as there is no change in his inner talking, the personal history of the man remains the same. To attempt to change the world before we change our inner talking is to struggle against the very nature of things. Man can go round and round in the same circle of disappointments and misfortunes, not seeing them as caused by his own negative inner talking, but as caused by others... Read More:

Love is Not Emotion...

"Obviously love is not sentiment. To be sentimental, to be emotional, is not love, because
sentimentality and emotion are mere sensations. A religious person who weeps about Jesus or Krishna, about his guru and somebody else is merely sentimental, emotional. He is indulging in sensation, which is a process of thought, and thought is not love. Thought is the result of sensation, so the person who is sentimental, who is emotional, cannot possibly know love. Again, aren’t we emotional and sentimental? Sentimentality, emotionalism, is merely a form of self-expansion. To be full of emotion is obviously not love, because a sentimental person can be cruel when his sentiments are not responded to, when his feelings have no outlet. An emotional person can be stirred to hatred, to war, to butchery. A man who is sentimental, full of tears for his religion, surely, has no love."          - Krishnamurti, The First and Last Freedom, pp 232-233

Is Money Really the Root of all Evil?

The following is an exerpt from Ayan Rand's novel,  'Atlas Shrugged". This
monologue is in response to a  character in the book who makes a disparaging remark directed at the speaker, claiming that he is the product of money and that money is the root of all evil. His response is very in-depth and will really make you question all our programming about money. It is a very idealistic viewpoint and it would appear that modern culture has drifted far away from that ideal. The movie is fascinating and the novel is even more controversial today than it was back in 1957. We like this quote because it makes us think and even if we are not quite sure what we think about parts of it... we enjoy the exercise!

“So you think that money is the root of all evil?” said Francisco d’Anconia. “Have you ever asked what is the root of money? Money is a tool of exchange, which can’t exist unless there are goods produced and men able to produce them. Money is the material shape of the principle that men who wish to deal with one another must deal by trade and give value for value. Money is not the tool of the moochers, who claim your product by tears, or of the looters, who take it from you by force. Money is made possible only by the men who produce. Is this what you consider evil?
