Meditation... The Gateway to the YOUniverse

Here, Neville elucidates the true purpose of meditation. Meditation is traditionally taught as a way to "Quiet" the mind thus driving out thought, and the resulting experience can be nice. But of what use it this quietness and emptiness? Krishnamurti describes most meditation as putting a mis-behaving child (aka the intellect) in the corner for a "time-out". But as soon as the meditation is over, the mind is right back to its mischief. Now, the mental discipline acquired in taming an out-of-control mind is certainly useful for relief, AND it is EXCELLENT preparation for Man's ultimate endeavor... creating as a God. The Awakening of the Imagination reveals the usefulness of meditation in preparing the mind to create visions of the infinite and giving them human parentage.

Neville Goddard
(July 1951)
Many people tell me they cannot meditate. This seems to me a bit like saying they cannot play the piano after one attempt. Meditation, as in every art or expression, requires constant practice for perfect results. A truly great pianist, for instance, would feel he could not play his best if he missed one day of practice. If he missed a week or a month of practice he would know that even his most uninitiated audience would recognize his defects. So it is with meditation....

Life is the Offspring of Love...

"We were born by a natural miracle of love and for a brief space of time our needs were all another's care. In that simple truth lies the secret of life. Except by love, we cannot truly live at all. Our parents in their separate individualities have no power to transmit life. So, back we come to the basic truth that life is the offspring of love. Therefore, no love, no life. Thus, it is rational to say that, "God is Love."

Love is our birthright. Love is the fundamental necessity of our life. "Do not go seeking for that which you are. Those who go seeking for love only make manifest their own lovelessness and the loveless never find love. Only the loving find love and they never have to seek for it."

The Music to THRIVE...


In a vibrational universe, alignment is key. The body is a projection and reflection of mind. When the mind is in alignment and finely-tuned, the body will naturally be drawn to that which is in harmony with that alignment. Yoga is the bodies dancing partner to the song of alignment. The THRIVE Trans-Dermal Nutrition system is the music for the dance.

Ode to Terrance McKenna...

Here to share with you an email we received from from Bill Donahue which we feel is poignant for the situation we all find ourselves in. We are not that familiar with Terrance's work, but like what Bill Has Shared with us/you. You can also watch Bill on YouTube on his page listed above,  Bill Donahue 

...One of the great minds of the true life invisible realm was 
the late Terence McKenna.

Terence said this which I feel really sums up the lunacy that we all tend to follow as if we were drawn magically to the Pied Piper of Washington.

Terence said:

"We have wandered into a state of prolonged neurosis because of the absence 
of a direct pipeline to the unconscious, and we have then fallen victim to priestcraft 
of every conceivable sort."

Terrence McKenna was not the type of person that the system could ever deal with.

Terence McKenna (1946-2000) was a student and teacher of  the foundations of

The Only Truth That Saves...

Take care your hands of passion
They mold your clay-like state...
Trim the hangnails of your reason...
They snag your shedding fate

The hardened world of Caesar...
The callous skin of logic
To the senses they are slaves
What truth be in Imagination?
The only truth that saves

Release your notion of the past...
The clipped wings of desire...
Stretch your mind... leave thought behind
Of this world you will not tire

The Search for Truth is Born of Ignorance...

"Is God to be found by seeking him out? Can you search after the unknowable? To find, you must know what you are seeking. If you seek to find, what you find will be a self-projection; it will be what you desire, and the creation of desire is not truth. To seek truth is to deny it.Truth has no fixed abode; there is no path, no guide to it, and the word is not truth. Is truth to be found in a particular setting, in a special climate, among certain people? Is it here and not there? Is that one the guide to truth and not another? Is there a guide at all? When truth is sought, what is found can only come out of ignorance, for the search itself is born of ignorance. You cannot search out reality: you must cease for reality to be." - Krishnamurti, Commentaries on Living, Series I

UFO's, Aliens & Understanding the Architecture of Human Consciousness

UFO's and Aliens are the modern icons of the mysterious and the fantastic. I don't know about you, but I have always wanted to see a UFO. It just seemed so out-of-this-world... and a little scary and unnerving. As an adult I still think it would be neat, as I have not seen one yet... Some interesting lights in the sky here and there, but nothing that would suggest a craft powered by beings from another planet. Whether you believe in them or not, its hard not to listen to the incredible stories of people who encounter them. And it begs the question...

 ...what is REALLY going on?

As consciousness matures and the Imagination begins to awaken, you will find a new context for how these
phenomena fit within the framework of our shared reality. Have you noticed that people who have experienced alien abductions never have any witnesses? Nobody sees them being abducted or being
returned. This seems kind of scary and mysterious but it becomes clear that these are all psychic phenomena, taking place deep in the psyche of the individual, in another dimension of reality. And as such,  they must be part of the collective human psyche because so many people have described very similar experiences and describe similar beings from ancient to modern times. This is a real phenomena, and even though it is not taking place in the physical reality, they are just as important and significant... "As within, so without". Because we live in a "Mind-Created" reality, these phenomena can manifest as "real" to those who are tuned into that mental vibration. They unveil hidden truths that are reflective of consciousness unfolding. Graham Hancock's video down the page will nicely tie together some of these concepts.

It is useful to separate UFO's that may be from another world and those that are terrestrial... or man-made. It is clear that their is man-made technology, that currently exists, that is FAR beyond what the

Barabbas or Jesus...The Trial of Your Mind

Here we will share with you a mystical version of the trial of Jesus. This trial takes place in the mind, not in the pages of history. Pontious Pilate is the personification of Logic and Reasoning. He asks Jesus, who is the personification of Truth, "What is the Truth?"  Jesus does not answer because he knows that there is no way for Logic and Reasoning to understand the Truth. Pilate gives up and turns him over to the crowd who clamour to release Barabbas, the robber, and crucify Jesus. Barabbas is the personification of that which denies, or robs, you of your desires... and he has been turned loose on the crowd ever since. Jesus is also synonomous with the Imagination and it is your Imagination that creates your salvation.

Here it is in this transcribed lecture of Neville Goddard. You can also read our last year's Good Friday post with this link http://lifestyleluminaries.blogspot.com/2014/04/good-friday-easter.html

BARABBAS OR JESUS

Tonight's subject is "Barabbas or Jesus." This is the greatest trial that ever took place in eternity. You have read of trials in countries where billions are involved. It means nothing compared to this trial. This is the greatest of all trials. When we read the scriptures we find things like the raising of Lazarus, which is the most fantastic thing you can imagine. A man who was dead for four days and his sister said: "By this time there is an odor" and he raises Lazarus, and yet only one Evangelist records it - only John tells the story. Matthew, Mark, and Luke do not mention the story of Lazarus. How could you tell the story of a man in this world who could raise someone who had decayed and bring him back to life, as we understand life, and not tell it as part of his biography? I could take you through the many stories and show you that one story is told by two, and sometimes three, and only by one, but here, in this story of the trial, all mention it. It has tremendous significance. The story of the greatest trial that ever took place in eternity.

May I tell you: it is taking place here tonight and you are the witnesses. You are the ones who will

Movie Pics... Kumare

Sometimes, people pay us a sincere compliment (which is nice) and we always respond by pointing out that fact that whatever it is that they see in us, is only possible because it is alive and awake in them.
  It is only possible to see the contents of your own consciousness. 
Good, bad or indifferent, what you are witnessing is alive in you. We, at that moment, just happen to be good mirrors for them. We are able to reflect this for them because our mirror is less distorted than most and we spend a lot of time cleaning it which is a benefit to us all.

This brings us to one of our new favorite movies, Kumare. A beautiful experiment in transformation and revealing the power within.  Kumare is about a young man's attempt to expose the phoniness that he sees in the Guru business by play-acting one himself. It starts out as a sort-of spoof and it turns into a trans-formative journey for the new Guru and the followers who joined him. On the surface, it seems to poke fun at the 'gullible-ness' of humanity but the truth is that it exposes a crucial fact that all Gurus, real and phony alike, play a role as a catalyst to awaken what is stirring inside of them. That is why we love the acronym, G.U.R.U... Gee, You Are You.

To us, the movie is proof-positive that all people are projecting their own life-movie on their own screen of space. People are sincerely seeing wonderous things in Kumare, which the movie-viewer might be inclined to laugh at as an inside joke. But, again, they are REALLY seeing it... and since the movie viewer knows its not actually from Kumare... It has to be in the student. This is a real revelation and will not spoil any of the drama in the film for you, but we think some people might miss its importance as the final scene plays out!
BTW... we saw it on Netflix

Become Love...

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. This activity is VERY limited because thought is all built upon the past and, typically, in response to the 5 senses. Thought cannot come upon anything that is new... just different and usually more complex arrangements of what already exists.


To know something spiritually, Man must BECOME it. 


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."

Understanding the final scene in the movie "Frequencies"

We recommended the movie, "Frequencies" in a recent post
and after some discussion about it with friends, it seems that it would be useful to give some background info to help better understand just how powerful the final scene is. If you will recall in that scene, Theo, (who really is the main character in my opinion), is chatting with his father who leaves in disappointment after he discovers that Theo has discovered the proverbial, "Theory of Everything" and now knows everything that is going to happen. Theo's quest for understanding came early in life which is what the early scenes in the movie are about. Theo tells his father that just because he knows the "score" of the play, he can still enjoy the performance. Theo does not yet fully know who he is until that final scene in which he stops time. Then he nonchalantly claims, "So... that's it then".

I say that Theo is the main character in the story, (not the movie of course) because the main plot centers around him and his awakening. Just like in real life... the drama is played out by other characters while Theo is relatively in the background and not seen much at all, until the end. Theo's father is actually playing the part of Judas, the reveal-er, and has to say goodbye in the final scene and Theo does not seem to upset about it. You see, this story is Theo's mystical revelation to the inheritance of "The Kingdom". If you look at Judas as a state of consciousness that reveals the truth, and Jesus as the consciousness of revealed truth... then you see that Judas must leave or,"commit suicide" in order for the new state of consciousness to remain permanent. One cannot be in two states of consciousness at the same time... You can not be Jesus and Judas, so Judas must go and Judas knows he must.

Below I am introducing you to some quotes by Neville taken from some of his transcribed lectures, which describe the phenomena in final scene and give it some meaning. It is one of the final acts in the play of self-realization... You know... the one when you know you are God. 

Neville From "Who is the Son of Man?"

   .... "Dominion is supremacy in determining and deciding and directing the actions of others. It is really ascendancy over human and unhuman forces, such as assures being obeyed.

Now, let me give you an experience of mine that you may taste of this power that is in store for you.

Holy Mole-y!!!

 This mole on my nose literally FELL OFF my face in less than 48 hours! I just applied a drop of doTERRA essential oil to it and covered it with a customized band-aid that I made. After 24 hrs, it did not look like much was happening... Then I woke up this morning and took the band-aid off and the mole was stuck to the band-aid. The mole showed up a couple of years ago and was only a little annoying. I had heard of people getting rid of moles with essential oils and finally decided to try it. I am impressed!

Harold and the Purple Crayon

A Profound Revelation of Human Imagination and True Causation:


Disguised as a Children's book, Harold tells the ultimate story of every Human's journey through this world of illusion, in a cute and lighthearted way. Harold desires an adventure, so he takes his purple crayon to draw a path and begins walking down it. It's a boring path and he begins feeling lonely so he goes off the path and draws some friends with his purple crayon. You will notice that Harold NEVER loses his purple crayon... it is ALWAYS with him. Harold is causing and creating everything in his adventure. Even when he is frightened by one of his creations, he unwittingly creates a problem with his crayon. But... no problem! He just uses his crayon to create a solution! Harold's purple crayon is the Imagination... with the power to do everything and anything and like your imagination...  is with you always.

Harold is Imagination
 in the act of Imagining.

This is a VERY important concept as we explore the mystical meanings of scripture. You will notice that Harold's discovery and use of the purple crayon takes place in his sleep. Man is in a profound sleep... the sleep of 'Adam'. And isn't it interesting that nowhere in the Bible does it say that 'Adam' ever woke up?

When Harold discovers his creative power... his Imagination... his "Purple Crayon" and begins creating lots of things, good and bad, lovely and dramatic. He draws himself into the Prodigal Journey (Link; The Prodigal Son post) With his creative power, he begins to remember who he is and longs to return home.

Again, he uses his creative power to get back. Harold draws a policeman to ask for the way home... but he was pointing in the direction Harold was going anyway, so he just continued. Then, with his Imagination, he begins to remember his bedroom where the adventure began, and starts drawing all the things that surrounded him in his bed. He draws a window around the moon, draws his bed, climbs in and "draws" up the covers. A perfect ending!


One of our truly favorite books and so simple to understand!

Martin Luther King Jr... An Enlightened Perspective

We had the great privilege and honor of witnessing this dialog with Abraham on a Mexican cruise with them a few years ago. The women was questioning the cultural and educational system that insists on perpetuating the ideas of slavery and injustice, which have nothing to do with her young son. She did not want her son to become identified with those roles and wondered what she could say to her son about it that would be uplifting. Abraham's answer is priceless. If we could all see the world with the understanding described in this video... what a wonderful world it would be!

Holodynamics: Every Problem is Caused by its Solution...

Here we are connecting you to Vernon Woolf and Holodynamics. After watching his full interview on Conscious Media Network many years ago... we were so moved that we decided we had to find him and pay him a visit. He was holding a weekend training in Santa Barbara so we and a couple of friends made the trip and spent the weekend in a very unique and powerful training. We really hit it off with him and he invited us to hang out with him for a couple days after which we all shared in consciousness together. He wanted us to become trainers of Holodynamics which he was just getting restarted back in the U.S. after being in the former Soviet Union for ten years. We liked that idea but are not inclined to rigid "systems" of training. We are certainly not against such things as they are very effective for most people but such things are not harmonious with us. We did, however, dive into his books and find his work to be VERY useful.

Every Problem is Caused by its Solution...

You have to think about that one for a minute or two............ problems appear as the result of a covenant with the desire to experience the solution. You have to think about that for a while as well. Vernon is one of the "Super-Educated" most well read people we have ever known or even heard about. His widely varied background and insatiable desire to understand the "Whole Dynamic" of life, ie; "Holodynamics" allowed him to give a powerful perspective on the earth experience.

The video above is a preview of the entire interview which you can access here  http://www.gaiamtv.com/video/vernon-woolf-holodynamics   You can access the site and the video on a free trial basis and you may find, as we have, that the $9/month is well worth it.

Here are some of his books which we have read: The Therapy Manifesto is an invitation to a higher consciousness of what is called "Therapy" which we really love. The Dance of Life is priceless. Holodynamics explains it ALL!

The Pruning Shears of Re-Vision...

After a wonderful gathering of like-minded individuals and discussing a lot of deeply spiritual concepts... It became apparent that we could all benefit by reviewing one of the most powerful activities that a human being can indulge in... The Art of Re-vision. We have all been given the greatest gift in the Universe... Imagination. This is the 90% of the brain that lies dormant... also known as the Right Side of the brain. Our left brains are sooo overwhelmed with stimulation and intellectual activity that there is no room and no time for Imagination. And just a few simple techniqies that absolutely anyone and everyone can do... FOR FREE!... is described in the lecture that follows. The speaker is a bit cryptic, so stick with it because that kind of speech is addressing the Imagination.

Fundamentally,  a great way to start is to sit or lay quietly in room, close your eyes, and Imagine you are in another room... perhaps your kitchen. You can close your eyes and see your kitchen... Yes? Do not be discouraged if you say you cannot... have you ever had a dream? Did you see people or things in your dream? If you did, then you can see things in your Imagination. Just keep trying. Your inner vision muscle may have atrophied and just need a little coaxing. So, with your eyes closed, in your
Imagination, open some cupboards. Feel the knob on the door to the cupboard. Hear the squeak of the hing. Look at what is inside. Continue exploring different areas. Do this every day and when you have become board with the kitchen, move to another room, or perhaps the house you grew up in. Continue this exercise and keep expanding it. You can go places you have never been before, when you get practiced. And, this will be the launching point to cultivate your power to change the world or the universe... but lets not get ahead of ourselves. Practice!

So, here is the lecture;

THE PRUNING SHEARS OF REVISION

This morning's subject is "The Pruning Shears of Revision". I firmly believe that if you will wisely and daily use the pruning shears of revision that you will find there is no objective beyond your ability to realize. And I mean that seriously, no objective beyond your ability to realize.

Casual Conversations on Consciousness with Jay D. Allen

As an expansion of, and in addition to, LifeStyle Luminaries radio program (link) we thought it would be fun to video some of the conversations. This one takes place while we were staying in Orange County, CA, and were told by our friend, Angel B, of Angel B Productions, that we just had to meet her friend, Jay D. Allen. We knew nothing about him and Angel has a great reputation for connecting "like-minds" so we agreed. It turns out that Jay has been a motivational speaker and author from a very young age and has written several books. You can find out more about him at www.HumansInHealing.com

This is a lively and unedited video covering a lot of topics centered around consciousness, spirituality and causality. The conversation got real deep, real fast... even before the camera got rolling. So, thanks Angel B for being a great facilitator!

Truth is a Pathless Land...

The following speech is, in our opinion, one of the greatest delivery of words to man, from man, that exists in history. Studying the penetrating teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti, one comes to the conclusion that problems created by thought cannot be solved by thought. Thought.... thinking... and the abstractions that result can be a perilous field especially for most of us who do not understand the workings of the mind, the nature of time and the meaning of love. 

Most of us are completely identified with our thinking, our beliefs, values etc... We think we are our thoughts. But who is doing all this thinking? Where does a thought come from? Who is the observer? What is the observed? Can we penetrate the superficial meaning of words to find reality? And if we can, What do we find?



The thinking part of the mind does not like these questions much... because it has been happily in control of our lives for a long time and is not really interested in any truth that would reduce it's grip on controlling what we think is real. Such questioning threatens the very existence of the mind-created self and it will do desperate things to protect itself. This desperation is reflected in the conflict and chaos of today's world.


Truth Is A Pathless Land

What follows is the speech made by Jiddu Krishnamurti in 1929 when he dissolved the Order of the Star. The Order of the Star was the organization built
