Mental Diets

 

Mental Diets...

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


Neville Goddard  1955


MENTAL DIETS

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:


This may seem far-fetched, but it is a matter which lends itself to research and experiment. The formula the chemist illustrates is not more certainly provable than the formula of this science by which words are clothed in objective reality.

One day a girl told me of her difficulties in working with her employer. She was convinced that he unjustly criticized and rejected her very best efforts. Upon hearing her story, I explained that if she thought him unfair, it was a sure sign that she herself was in need of a new conversation piece. There was no doubt but that she was mentally arguing with her employer, for others only echo that which we whisper to them in secret.

She confessed that she argued mentally with him all day long. When she realized what she had been doing, she agreed to change her inner conversations with her employer. She imagined that he had congratulated her on her fine work, and that she in turn had thanked him for his praise and kindness. To her great delight, she soon discovered that her own attitude was the cause of all that befell her.

What...Is...Love?

Our 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.

I WANTED TO KNOW!

...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?

Food for Thought?

What are YOU feeding your mind?
 Let us talk about mental nutrition.
'You are what you eat' with the body.
'You become what you consume' with the mind. 
It's pretty obvious that this is true for the body. But isn't it interesting that have not applied this rule to the mind? The mind wants to be fed compulsively 'More'. 

More information, more drama, more excitement, more violence, more knowledge, more sex, the absolute latest breaking news… as if it would make a difference in the world if we heard about it 2 hours later. This blind and ravenous consumption of media has made our minds heavy, dull and obese... fattening up on the idea that what is going on 'out there' is more important than what is right in front of you 'right now'.

The highly processed and cleverly crafted messages we consume are clogging up the digestive system of the mind, making it nearly impossible to extract what little nutrition is hidden there.  

A high-fat diet of: traumatic television, nasty newsprint and pathological periodicals contributes to the 'heart' disease of the mind, keeping us internally in conflict and judgment, thus leading to an emotional cardiac arrest and a heartless world.

 Mental nutrition high with the cholesterol of conflict, conspiracy and creative consumerism, hardens up the arteries of freethinking. Mind-foods full of behavioral preservatives subversively sell us everything from chocolate-chip cookies, to national propaganda, to what a human being is supposed to look like and behave like, thus cementing un-asked-for belief systems to an unaware consumer. These are just a few of the external hazards of this kind of mental nutrition.

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

The Map is not the Territory...

By Tim Che'

I don't know about you, but I have always been fascinated by maps. Maps are handy things to have when you want to get somewhere that you have not been before.  I love getting a sense of the spatial relationship of where I am to my surroundings. I have spent an inordinate amount of time looking at maps and things like Google Earth. And, even as detailed as Google Earth can be, I am ALWAYS astonished to discover that the actual place is not at all like the map, or Google Earth with the street view! It is always MUCH more in depth, and full of life, and overwhelming to the senses... a profound level of awareness and presence in an eternal moment that no map could ever come close to.

There are many kinds of maps... not just about locations and roads or paths. Religions are a map to
God, supposedly. Science is the modern map of  the material world. Pharmaceuticals and surgeries are a popular map to health.

There are mind-maps, star maps, and even a map of human consciousness. And all maps are created through someone's remembered and recorded perceptions and/or analysis of hopefully accurate data. Hopefully, of course, for anyone who wishes to follow the map and get to a particular destination.

So, maps attempt to lay out the territory and build paths to destinations. Then we discover...


And what does that say about "destinations" as it relates to "truth"? Let us address that later as we continue to explore "maps".

What's the "Matter" with You?

by Tim Che'

For some time now, I have been suspicious about science and it's limitations, particularly when it comes to the mind and ideas like "Transhumanism" and "The Singularity". I am reminded by Neville that... "The creator is always greater than the created" AND:

"Facts always follow, they never precede" 

In other words, something caused everything that exists. Something preceded the fact. It was before the fact. That something is Consciousness.
Science is ill-equipped to explore the cause
of matter. The only thing that "matters" to science is matter. As a matter of fact, facts are the only thing that matters to the logical mind of reason. But something "caused" the matter. To discover this cause, you must quiet the part of the mind that is only concerned with matter, with facts, with the results of the cause. If you are successful in your quest to find the "cause", the rest of the world will look at you and say;

"What's the matter with you!?"

They can only translate what you have discovered in terms of the matter that they are lost in. It is the story of the narcissist, who does not know that the world is his own reflection, and he loses himself in his own image, his own projection.

There is no way to "know"-your-way out of this current reality... 

The only knowledge that is possible, is self knowledge. It is not possible to know any more than self, and that is true on every level of creation and every dimension of the Imagination. This includes ascended masters and etheric beings, and Aliens, who seem to be greater than what we believe that we are. We make ourselves  'Grasshoppers in a land of Giants' but at the end of the day, only one thing is actually happening and that is that consciousness is seeking its own self-definition.

I found this video the other day and I like the way this topic is presented here. I think you will as well.... and you can't beat the presenter's credentials.

The Real Cause of Cancer...

Every page of this web/blog is dedicated to the expression of a revolution in human consciousness, revealed in the Awakened Imagination, as the cause of all phenomenon. Clearly, health or disease is caused by the "inner" life of the individual more than the "outer".  Here, Andreas Moritz, explains the true cause of cancer and eloquently shows us that disease is fundamentally psycho-somatic and comes from our state of mind... Which is exactly what we have been teaching about the relationship between the Human Imagination and reality. As a close friend and contemporary of Che's, that she befriended while living in Minnesota, we thank you with all our heart! Andreas Moritz... R. I. P.

The Garden of Eden is the Mind of Man

You are the Gardener of your mind. 
You have been given the responsibility to, "Dress it and to keep it". 

Perhaps you have been taking a nap... and weeds have begun to grow in your mind during your slumber. Take a look around and what do you see? If you see the weeds of anger, or violence, or despair, disease, poverty, etc, etc,... you can immediately begin to prune them with your mind.

The Law of Reversibility...

Consciousness and Matter are One phenomenon. All transformations of force are reversible.
Electricity can produce magnetism... and magnetism can be used to produce electricity.
Heat can produce mechanical motion... and mechanical motion can be used to produce heat.
Cause and effect, matter and energy, action and reaction are the same and inter-convertible.
When you fully understand this law, you will begin to tame and master your mind and shape your world into your ideal.

Beyond the Consciousness of Healing

 Beyond the Consciousness of Healing


Published by Edge Life, A Holistic Journal, March 2006 
by Tim Che'


What lies beyond the consciousness of healing is a topic to ponder, not one to debate.  It is a perspective about what you believe and how you manifest your world.  It is your choice what to believe is true, a choice that nobody can take away from you.  But once you have chosen what is true for you, will you realize that the circumstances you will meet have been pre-arranged from your preconceived notions of what is true and your only choice from then on is how you will react to these circumstances?  What comes your way is predetermined from your choice, your selection —whether intentional or not—of a state of consciousness.  The following is a dialog about choice from the broadest perspective: the choice of what you believe to be true about the world and you. You have but one choice to make that will determine the course of everything in your world and your role in it:

Do you believe that your inner conversations and mental activity are a result of your life-circumstances? 

Or, do you believe that your life-circumstances are a result of your inner conversations and mental activity?
  

Your Only Choice

If you believe the former—that your inner conversations and mental activity are a result of your
external life-circumstances—then your only choice from now on is in how you will react to the circumstances prepared for you by the chosen state of consciousness you occupy, and you might even be quite unaware of your choice altogether.  You will be a “re-actor” reacting to the facts your chosen state of consciousness presents to you.  You might even feel successful or an expert in your reactions.  Others might admire the results of your reactions, but you are still limited by your chosen field of reaction. Since we are discussing going beyond healing consciousness, if you are a “healer” and are comfortably identified with that state you may save yourself the energy of any conflict that could arise from reading further by stopping now and continuing in the world—the consciousness—of your choosing.  No one can deny you that anyway.

If, however, after careful consideration you decide to believe the latter—that your life-circumstances are a result of your inner conversations and mental activity— you can begin to understand you are God, a Creator. This will be the premise for the rest of the dialog and by agreeing, if you notice any arguments creeping into your mind, it may be that you have changed your mind about the premise.



Command and Control

So, as a creator, do you have command over your inner conversations and mental activity?  Do you have control over the direction of your creation?  Is your habitual state of mind predominant in defining your world?  Do you run over the same old patterns of likes, dislikes, agitations, addictions, and desires for knowledge?  These patterns are representative of the state of consciousness you have wittingly or unwittingly chosen and are reflected in your reality, which is projected onto the screen of space to become your experience.

There are infinite states of consciousness and mankind is continually moving in and out of these states, mostly unaware.  You are always in a “state” and it is useful to realize that you are separate from the

Movie Pics: Don Juan Demarco

Depp, Brando, Dunaway... This all-star combo combined with the Great Francis Ford Coppola, have created a masterpiece lesson of Imagination and Love. This is truly a story of an Awakened Imagination and not about a narcissistic womanizer. If you take the character, and the words that he speaks, and direct them to yourself... Ahhhhh, what a love affair will begin! It makes you ask the question,"What kind of mind is it that could say these things and see the world in this way?" And that is a VERY powerful question! One of our new Favorite movies! Here are some teasers:

  1. “There are only four questions of value in life, Don Octavio. What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same: only love.”
  2. “Have you never met a woman who inspires you to love? Until your every sense is filled with her? You inhale her. You taste her. You see your unborn children in her eyes and know that your heart has at last found a home.”
  3. “What do you know of great love? Have you ever loved a woman until milk leaked from her as though she had just given birth to love itself, and now must feed it or burst? Have you ever tasted a woman until she believed that she could be satisfied only by consuming the tongue that had devoured her? Have you ever loved a woman so completely that the sound of your voice in her ear could cause her body to shudder and explode with such intense pleasure that only weeping could bring her full release?”
  4. “I give women pleasure, if they desire, it is of course the greatest pleasure they will ever experience. No woman has ever left my arms unsatisfied.”
  5. “Every true lover knows that the moment of greatest satisfaction comes when ecstasy is long over and he beholds before him the flower which has blossomed beneath his touch.”
  6. “By seeing beyond what is visible to the eye. Now there are those, of course, who do not share my perceptions, it’s true. When I say that all my woman are dazzling beauties, they object. The nose of this one is too large; the hips of another, they are too wide; perhaps the breasts of a third, they are too small. But I see these women for how they truly are… glorious, radiant, spectacular, and perfect, because, I am not limited by my eyesight. Women react to me the way that they do, Don Octavio, because they sense that I search out the beauty that dwells within until it overwhelms everything else. And then they cannot avoid their desire, to release that beauty and envelope me in it.”
  7. “Every woman is a mystery to be solved.”
  8. "I would say that he has a rather limited and un-creative way of looking at the situation. Look, you want to know if I understand that this is a mental hospital? Yes, I understand that, but then how can I say that you are Don Octavio and I am a guest at your villa? Correct?"

Would You Choose to be Free?

A question for a generation at the precipice of awakening:


Some time ago, we were In-Joying some time in the beautiful outside patio of a nice coffee shop in Orange County, CA, and were engaged in conversation with our server, a young man in his mid 20's, with a lovely personality. He was living with his parents and enjoying a very comfortable life, by any standard. I asked him,  "Would you rather be taken care of? Or would you choose to be Free?".

He thought about it for a bit and replied,   "I want both"!!!!    I assured him that the 2 were mutually exclusive, at which point he indicated that he was currently quite satisfied with his present situation. And who could blame him?
The question is really about 
"Spiritual Adulthood"
 which implies an unconditional responsibility for EVERYTHING, for
everything is a child of your consciousness
born into existence by you... the you that now plays the spiritual role of "Parent".

In that state of consciousness, you do not choose freedom... it is an inherent part of the state. It is not the freedom "From" something. That is how our culture generally discusses freedom and it is not possible to be free "From" a "Thing". Your awareness of the "Thing" makes it active in your vibration and alive in your world. And, you do not need freedom from something that you have dominion over, so there is no need to discard anything. If you had the power to create it, you have the power to re-make it into something you decide is "good" to you. This "Adulthood" is "Inclusive", not "Exclusive"

In this spiritual adulthood, there is no room for the childish toys of religions, authorities, experts, higher-powers, atoms, aliens, dimensions, fears and protections. It's only YOU and your intricate connection to all of "It".

It is the normal progression for the "child" to spiritually "grow up" and become a spiritual adult. Every life you have ever lived is the "childhood" that prepares us for the final "right of passage" where... "It did not seem strange for him to do the works of God".

So, just meditate on the question, "What is Spiritual Adulthood?" or, "How would I know if I am there?"  Then see what happens!

One Creative Moment

 "There is a moment in each day that Satan cannot find nor can his watch fiends find it; but the industrious find this moment and multiply it... And when it once is found, it renovates every moment of the day if rightly placed."
(William Blake)

Whenever we imagine things as they ought to be, rather than as they seem to be... that is
"The Moment" Blake is referring to and the moment that will be illuminated in this writing. For in that moment the spiritual man's work is done and all the great events of time start forth to mould a world in harmony with that moment's altered pattern. 

Satan, Blake writes, is a "reactor". He never acts, he only reacts. And if our attitude to the happenings of the day is  "reactionary", are we not playing Satan's part? Man is only "reacting" when in his natural or Satan state... he never acts or creates, he only reacts or re-creates. 

One real creative moment... one real feeling of the wish full-filled... is worth more than the whole natural life of your reaction to facts. In such a moment you could say, "God's work is done".Once more we may say with Blake:

"God only acts and Is, in existing beings or men."

There is an imaginal past and an imaginal future. When you are reacting, the past is re-created into the present. When you act out your dreams of fancy, with your Imagination, you bring the future into the present.

 "I feel NOW the future in the instant."  

The spiritual man acts: for him, anything that he wants to do, he can do and do immediately in his imagination, and his motto is always, "The Moment is Now".

What You Can Plan is Too Small for You to Live


Power Through Experience...

“a veritable San Andreas Fault in the American psyche: the personality’s wish to have power over experience, to control all events and consequences, and the soul’s wish to have power through experience, no matter what that may be.”

Whyte, David. The Heart Aroused: Poetry and the Preservation of the Soul in Corporate America. New York: Doubleday, 1994. 1-30.

"What would our days be like if we came out of hiding and brought our fears, loves, and dreams directly into the workplace?

In The Heart Aroused, poet David Whyte shows that the best way to respond to the current call for creativity in organizational life is to overcome our habitual fear and reticence and bring our full passionate, creative human souls, with all their urgencies and unnamed longings, right inside the office with us. When Whyte, who often consults for corporate clients, walks into an organization, it is not just to advise, strategize, and make recommendations. Instead, he clarifies our personal--not organizational--difficulties at work by placing them in the age-old context of poetry and story. To follow Whyte through his brilliant, soulful discussion is to raft the turbulent stream of conflicting currents that make up our lives in American organizations.


Whyte uses poetry to bring to life the experience of change itself. When he retells the story of Beowulf, he shows us how to face the nightmares that intrude into even the most organized workplace, nightmares we face in the demands, conversations, and relationships that make up our work life. He shows how to say what we mean and stand by it, even in the face of hostile authority--based on how poets William Blake, Rainer Maria Rilke, and T. S. Eliot lived their beliefs--in the simplest of words. He reveals how power must be built on vulnerability, how innocence cannot be sacrificed to experience, how creativity is the art of wedding simplicity and clarity with chaos.

Now available in paperback with an all new user's guide, The Heart Aroused shows how to use the language of prophecy, poetry, and enlightenment to give voice and strength to our most creative but most hidden desires.

Born in England, David Whyte is one of the few poets to have taken his perspectives on creativity into the field of organizational development, where he works with many American and international companies. He has published several audio collections and three books of poetry.

SOUL

But what is soul, and what is meant by the preservation of the soul? By definition, soul evades the cage of definition. It is the indefinable essence of a person's spirit and being. It can never be touched and yet the merest hint of its absence causes immediate distress. In a work situation, its lack can be sensed intuitively, though a person may, at the same moment, be powerless to know what has caused the loss. It may be the transfer of a well-loved colleague to another department, a change of rooms to a less appealing office, or, more seriously, the inner intuitions of a path not taken. Though the Oxford English Dictionary's lofty attempt at soul is the principle of life in man or animals, depth-psychologist James Hillman describes it in far more eloquent terms in his provocative book of selected writings, A Blue Fire:

To understand soul we cannot turn to science for a description. Its meaning is best given by its context...words long associated with the soul amplify it further: mind, spirit, heart, life, warmth, humanness, personality, individuality, intentionality, essence, innermost purpose, emotion, quality, virtue, morality, sin, wisdom, death, God. A soul is said to be "troubled," "old," "disembodied," "immortal," "lost," "innocent," "inspired." Eyes are said to be "soulless" by showing no mercy. The soul has been imaged as...given by God and thus divine, as conscience, as a multiplicity and as a unity in diversity, as a harmony, as a fluid, as fire, as dynamic energy, and so on...the search for the soul leads always into the "depths."

The above quote is very revealing and explains a lot about the 'Why are we here?' question. It is easy to see the truth of this quote in all aspects of life, modern or ancient. This, again, outlines the prodigal purpose of life. Read our earlier post on 

The Prodigal Son 

Our personality/intellect/thinking-mind loves the idea of controlling everything but the overriding and overpowering desire of the soul always seems to get its way. We may think we want something but the soul wants the greater power, through experience, that may have nothing to do with what we think. Ever notice that in your life?

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




These words from Krishnamurti were prophetically written over 60 years ago:

"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

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....

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."

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."

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

Consigned Disobedience...

If I commanded you to NOT think of a blue elephant... It is too late because you have already had the thought. You cannot "NOT" something without first identifying it with your thought and thereby including it in your experience.

And so it is with the biblical Ten Commandments...

You may have noticed that each commandment is stated in the negative, "Thou shalt NOT..." Except the one, "Honor thy father and thy mother" 

"You can educate a man out of a state (of consciousness), but you cannot prohibit him from occupying it... Every commandment that is negative will be broken, for 'God has consigned all men to disobedience that he may have mercy on all.' The moment I give you a command that is negatively worthy, I have consigned you to disobedience. There is only one commandment which is not negative. That one is "Love thy father and mother." Every commandment has to be broken, yet man thinks he is so holy." (Neville)
Read Neville's entire lecture at http://lifestyleluminaries.blogspot.com/2016/05/scriptural-language.html


Knowing this, is it possible that this consigned disobedience is responsible for the growth and expansion of the universe? For the education  and cultivation of the individual? Is it a list of the things that you will absolutely do, in the fullness of time to complete the prodigal journey? (click to read The Prodigal Son) No judgement... Just the experience of contrast for educative purposes.

The mystical interpretation of "The Ten Commandments" is well presented in Bill Donahue videos which you can access here http://lifestyleluminaries.blogspot.com/p/bill-donahue.html#commandments

A Brief Summary of the Mystical Interpretation of "The Ten Commandments":
  1. "I Am" is the only God. That means you.
  2. Do not give away your power to external things, events or even Gods ie; "graven images"
  3. You will reap what you claim with your "I AM ________" statements

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

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 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

Thoughtlessness?

Why is one thoughtless?

The thinker thinks his thoughts through habit, through repetition, through copying, which brings ignorance and sorrow. 
Is not habit thoughtlessness?
 Awareness creates order, but it never creates habit. Settled tendencies only bring about thoughtlessness. Why is one thoughtless? 
Because to think is painful, 
it creates disturbances, it brings opposition, it may cause one’s actions to go contrary to the established pattern. To think-feel extensionally, to become choicelessly aware may lead to unknown depths, and 
the mind rebels against the unknown;
 so it moves from the known to the known, from habit to habit, from pattern to pattern. Such a mind never abandons the known to discover the unknown. Realizing the pain of thought, the thinker becomes thoughtless through copying, through habit; being afraid to think, he creates patterns of thoughtlessness. As the thinker is afraid, his actions are born of fear, and then he regards his actions and tries to change them. 
The thinker is afraid of his own creations; but the deed is the doer, 
so the thinker is afraid of himself. 
The thinker is fear itself; the thinker is the cause of ignorance, of sorrow. The thinker may divide himself into many categories of thought, but the thought is still the thinker. The thinker and his efforts to be, to become, are the very cause of conflict and confusion.

Multi-Tasking... Really?

by Tim Che'

We live in a culture that highly values busy-ness (aka business). And multi-tasking is "all the rage" among super-moms and fast-paced executives.

It's like a badge of honor to be juggling endless things... like the clowns in the circus spinning plates or juggling bowling pins.

Todays TV shows are idolizing characters that easily breeze along while answering to an insurmountable amount of decisions in lofty offices of government and business.

I, personally, have never been impressed by such acts of intellectual bravado. And, I have always questioned whether it

is actually possible "multi-task"? 

I saw a Myth Busters TV show, that the kids showed me, that disproved the notion, in their Myth-buster ways, which showed more of a 'Rapid Tasking' than multi-tasking... a kind of quickly jumping back and forth with a high-speed (perhaps over- caffeinated) mind.

But when you watch a mother of 5 little ones feeding the baby, while making lunch, and talking on the phone to her office manager... what is really going on?

The Sad Clown

The inspiration for this article came to mind with the recent passing of Robin Williams, a self-professed sad-clown, who possessed the most extreme examples of this type of  mental hyper-drive.

It would be difficult to find an equal of rapid-fire intellect anywhere on earth. The question that came to mind was... did his extraordinary talent and creativity come from the creative right-brain? Or was it rather an extreme expression of a left-brained intellect that was totally out of control?

The intellect can be VERY clever but is limited to thought and therefor only able to rearrange that which already exists. It is not able to create anything new because all thought is based on language which is only of the past. I ask this question because I read the stories of Mr. William's long struggle with emotional issues and deep depression and I have noticed over the years that some people who struggled with negative emotional states seem to have well developed and over-active intellects.

 ALL emotions expressed are preceded by the programmed mind in response to the stimulus of thought or the environment. If you cannot control your thinking you will not be able to control your emotional responses. I don't pretend to know what his mental state was or is... I just find it interesting and wonder what true creativity is and where it actually comes from.

Neville says that creation is finished, and that creativity is just a greater receptivity to that which
