Spiritual Contracts: The Foundation of Human Suffering and Fractured Souls

contract (v.)

late 14c., “to draw into a smaller compass, become smaller, shrink” (intransitive); early 15c. “make an agreement, enter into a contract, agree or establish to undertake mutually,” from Old French contracter and directly from Latin contractus, past participle of contrahere “to draw several objects together; draw in, shorten, lessen, abridge,” metaphorically “make a bargain, make an agreement,” from assimilated form of com “with, together” (see con-) + trahere “to draw” (see tract (n.1)). Related: Contracted; contracting.


One of the most difficult challenges when it comes to the awakening process is dealing with your relationship to other people. We have grown up in a world that has, for many centuries, placed a huge importance on not being separated from the group or the village or the society.  During certain times in the past, this made a lot of sense because our physical survival often depended on it. There continues to be certain cultures in the world who live in this kind of survival mode, where the individual exists only to serve his village and his culture (relationship to the gods).

I am going to assume that those who are reading this post are not villagers. I just want to get that out of the way.

There is much talk about the Great Awakening in the political arena. In that arena, the awakening is treated as if it were a process of discovering “truth”. This is not what awakening is. Awakening is a shifting of consciousness such that the entire basis of reality is suspect: not just “theirs”, but your understanding of who you are, your identity, your relationships, and your aspirations. Awakening is not “outer focused”. It is inner focused. When we fuss about what others are doing or not doing, that is when we are off the path of awakening. However, getting off the path is actually part of the path! When we start focusing and fussing over what others are doing or not doing, we can take that opportunity to look at our bondage/contracts with others. If we are seeking the truth of our being, we will eventually realize that these contracts are just in the way of our awakening process. We will want to release them, and not making a lifestyle out of being a warrior against the enemy of what we think truth is. Fighting against the world, is like fighting about a contract you signed and agreed to. If the solution was to simply dissolve the contract, it would be a lot easier. If the world could be freed from slavery through the dissolution of such contracts, wouldn’t you do it?

In this article, I want to talk about why many of us are too focused on what others are doing and not doing, believing or not believing. It doesn’t matter what “side” you are on. The attitude is the same: the other side is not doing or saying what they are supposed to: “They aren’t listening to me.”, “They aren’t listening to the right people”. This is all combative and will never resolve the fundamental problem, which is the contracts.

Contracts show up first in the way we relate to others. Most people feel that their own joy is deeply connected to the conditional joy of others or the profitability of an event. “I won’t be happy until he does this or that”. “How can I be free when everyone else is in chains”? “How can life by joyful when this or that is going on?”.  All of these statements reflect the same programming which is “joy is conditional”. That joy, however, is easily derived from this programmatic statement which is “My light/power is conditional”.  That our power and joy are conditional is the greatest lie of all. It is the lie of the Matrix programming.  Currently, the Matrix programming is falling apart, and the contracts we rely on are falling apart. That is why everyone is so angry with each other and there is so much divisiveness. We have a choice. We either believe to fall apart because the programming is falling apart or we believe we can let go of the thing that is dividing us in the first place, like a bad marriage. We can continue to fight, bicker, scream and harm each other. Or, we realize that there is something strange going on – why are we so attached to what others are doing? This relationship is not working. There is an underlying expectation from all sides that something should be a certain way, but isn’t. That underlying expectation is the contract or contracts involved.

The Matrix survives through contracts – not natural or divine connection. The contracts are restrictive and confining and involve a conditional agreement between two or more parties.  They always involve an exchange of energy. You give up something to get something. You share a bit of your energy in exchange for some kind of experience. This is how fame and success is acquired in the Matrix. Fame and success can happen naturally, but is extremely difficult because the Matrix has so much control over that area of consciousness. Society survives on fame and success, on leaders in the spotlight and a proof of their benefit.  So, the contract defines the terms of the exchange. When both parties receive what they want, they are happy. When they don’t receive what they want, they aren’t happy.  A happy society is working well beneath the contract and likes its leaders. But these social contracts run through our personal lives as well. Consider that every person in your life can hold a contract with you. It is unspoken, yes. These are spiritual contracts, but they are powerful, especially if you try to let go. All contracts are energetic exchanges of some form, either physical energy or ethereal or both. They can be established through blood, through semen, through the simple touching of hands: some kind of exchange of DNA.  The more control of the DNA we have, the more we control the contracts. This is the true reason for genetic/DNA research. The mRNA “vaccines” are an attempt to lay a platform for genetic contract manipulation of the population. As you can probably imagine, most of the contracts we bind to are completely beneath the radar of our consciousness. This is why “higher consciousness” isn’t necessarily going to help you remove the contracts, unless you see them with that higher consciousness. It doesn’t matter if you can find your place of peace and joy. If you fall away from that when interacting with the world, then you are still bound.  But there is good news there.  You can take the opportunity of this uncomfortable and limited feeling to notice where you are bound. At that point you can release it by bringing in the light of your soul, through energetic transmutation and calling the contract “null and void”. If it still won’t budge, then you might have to use some other strategies for your particular circumstance.

It is important to keep in mind that nature doesn’t require contracts. All the beings of nature, on this planet, and beyond, simply work together as they are. They encounter each other. There is an event. They leave each other. No drama. No attachment. There is no energy loss – only exchange. With energetic contracts, we feel depleted by others, not fulfilled or empowered. Or, we feel animated by others, excited, inspired – but it doesn’t last very long. In the world of contracts, relationships are shaky, dramatic, and can only be maintained through eventual compromise. I am going to use animals as an example of natural energy exchange. I am not suggesting that we act like animals. I am suggesting that we have the ability to navigate life that is not filled with energy loss or a feeling as if all love is fleeting and ephemeral.  Animals do not have to compromise in order to interact. They can reflect their natural awareness to us by the way they handle life in the wild. The bird doesn’t fuss over what to do next. It does it. The bird knows where to fly in the flock. It doesn’t have to fumble around. We call it instinct.  Natural beings do not suffer greed or dependence the way human do. They hunt when they need food. They don’t hunt for sport. When a snake is ready to die, it wants to die. It’s will is aligned with nature – unafraid, just being. On the other hand, human beings create contracts and, because they are not aware of them, do not know how to resolve them. Promises of all sorts – to live forever. These are interesting ones. There are ones that promise safety to you. There are others that promise that you will be taken care of, or loved. All of these contain fine print. For example, since most people don’t know who they are, they don’t realize “who” is the one getting to live forever. It is a tricky deal that is individually fine-tuned.

To explain contracts, I like to use fame as an example. The reason is that fame is a contract that attempts to give us universal love and acceptance. The cost is true unconditional love of soul. The more fame we want, the more we “sell” our soul. Unconditional love is exchanged for the conditional. The soul agrees to give parts of itself into the matrix and those pieces are passed out like candy under the conditions of the contract. Other people receive them and then reflect adoration back to the original owner. The result is that the original “owner” feels love and acceptance from others. This is why cult leaders get into so much trouble. This is why many famous celebrities are left broken and dissolved, ruined and plagued with abuse and addiction. The average human being also experiences this, but not on the same scale. During the past fifty years it has become increasingly easy for every human being to become famous to some extent, through social media, podcasts, and various other means.

Every contract we make is an exchange of energy. This is the true meaning of currency. Paper money is a ruse. The true money is your energy, your focus and your attention in the heart space.  There are some who like having lots of people around them for support, help, assistance, friendship, etc. This is why fame is so attractive and gets most people every time, if given the opportunity. There is a cost for this, as there is a price in everything. Nothing is free, because everything is energy. Again, contracts are made by transferring pieces of soul to others. This gives them a sense of comfort, that you are somehow connected to them. It enlivens them in some way. This is a good thing between mother and child, as it is a natural energy exchange. Fame and contracts is an unnatural and synthetic attempt to imitate that. The effect of course is that humanity has become infantilized, always looking for others to give it the love and comfort it needs. It seeks that in fame, whether that fame is through Facebook likes or through stardom. Either way, the individual is completely controlled and bonded to the community giving it the very love that it could be giving to itself all along. The reason why people are addicted to certain ideas, philosophies, points of view, people, is because of these contracts. This why people stay in abusive or detrimental situations. The spiritual contracts are a million times more powerful than our conscious ones.

In the Matrix, love works like that. It is fragments of a broken mirror that we can get lost in, chasing other people, thinking we are chasing love, friendship, wealth, fame. The truth is that we are just chasing pieces of ourselves. It is very strange. The number of fragments we can create and pieces we give away are innumerable, because the number of contracts are undefined. The reason that it is infinitely possible is because the energy is actually generated from an infinite source, which is the soul.  The soul is who we are, and it is the soul that has infinite and unbounded energy or love.

The Matrix always carries distortion of the soul and soul energy. Doesn’t matter if you talking about love, awakening, spirituality, etc. Even now, because I am using the common language of English, my energy is being distorted.  Awakening cannot happen if we remain bound to the Matrix. It is that simple. So, talk about “The Great Awakening” is fine, but it is only the beginning. Knowing horrible things about politicians is not an awakening. It is not about discovering that you have been lied t o. Awakening is not about learning the truth of something. It seeing that the entire foundation of belief and knowledge that you had was a lie. It is about learning that you were the one who was lying to yourself.

Remember, the meaning of the word ‘contract’ is to make smaller. Contracts make things small and limited. You are immediately restricted, fractured and fragmented. The more contracts that bind you, the more restricted you feel. The more you release, the more freedom you experience in the world. This is not a conceptual thing. You actually experience yourself as a free autonomous being that can choose the life you want to live, regardless of what is happening around you or what others are doing or not doing.  You see and feel that they don’t limit you in any way. It is truly the road less travelled. Most people cannot be with that. They especially can’t be with it in totalitarian society that attempts to control in every way it can. The truth is that it cannot control these spiritual contracts. If these contracts release, the totalitarianism in the physical will fall.

The most difficult part about awakening is coming to terms with these things, coming to terms to the fact that in being bound to these contracts, we have chosen bondage, and not freedom. Most people point to others in order to blame them for the misery they have caused in the world. People have, in the Matrix, an ardent desire to make the “other” the problem, the one who is keeping them from safety or happiness or whatever.  If you wish to truly help the state of the world as you see it, work to dissolve your contracts between yourself and the beings who wish to keep you enchained. No external forcing, persuading, convincing, or arguing is going to change others to your point of view. You don’t need to change your point of view in order to change the world. All you need to do is dissolve your contracts, your limitations, your smallness, your idea that you need others in order to be free.  As you dissolve your contracts with them, you give them a little more freedom as well. If we all do this on a planetary scale, then we will see the change we want to be in the world. So the best remedy for life is freedom, and the best way to freedom is to cultivate what brings you joy, despite the darkness in the world, the evil, the demands and shackles that the world seems to want to live inside of. Just be free. Just be joyful. That is the beginning. Let there be light.

Prison Planet: Choices vs. Free Will

Communities, like a flock of birds, are a natural and beautiful part of living and life. Supporting each other, working together, communicating and the sharing of wisdom and knowledge is not only necessary, but one of the great joys in life. Every group, every organization, whether that is a group of friends or a group of associates, volunteers, etc. exists by virtue of the investment of its members. This means that every individual in a community has a role to play, and, as a role, is either contributing, consuming or both. The more casual the group, the easier it for the group to grow as a unit, transform, and change direction. This can happen relatively easily – though not always –  in a group of friends or family. However, in larger organizations, change is slow and laborious and so is usually avoided. But its not avoided only because it is slow and laborious. It is avoided because larger and more embedded organizations have taken on, not only a strong egoic identity as a whole, but also strong mandate and contract for the individuals who consider themselves as members. A strong national identity is associated with this kind of organization. Also, a corporation such as Microsoft or Amazon provides a clear direction, goals, and inner character that is expected to be upheld by all its members. Members of communities are expected to follow the community guidelines as a rule. As individuals, most of us are members of various communities, in various roles.

The problem, however, with communities today, is that they have become, not natural formations, but synthetic structures of control.  Even communities such as groups of friends and family are affected by this phenomenon. This is because of the overlap of communities and the infiltration of one inside the other. For example, an individual can belong to political party with which his family is not affiliated. , When a political party becomes more associated with the identity of the individual, the ego offers less room for family and friends. Ego is always about role and identity. Egos cannot carry too many roles because it requires a reconciliation of incompatible roles,  a process that, to the mind, seems impossible (although this is a lie). More and more, we are seeing stories of families being toward apart simply on the basis of political beliefs, or beliefs in, for example, whether or not vaccines are harmful. These beliefs, that are planted outside the immediate communities of friends and family, are somehow easily being able to tear those more organic groups to pieces.

This phenomenon is rooted in the inability to reconcile difference, as it shows up in our lives.  The political party might believe that capitalism is bad, and the individual yet still has desires to open up a photography business. Which view does the individual choose? With which idea does the individual identify? On the surface, it appears that the ideas are not reconcilable, and so the individual most choose which role he wants to play. Choice is not free-will, however, and it is very crucial to notice this. The individual, in this state of two possible choices, is not utilizing his creative energy to actually merge the two together.

So, the individual will choose whichever choice most appeals to him at the time. “Appeals” is a broad term, and encompasses pretty much everything. We can choose things because others expect us to, or we fear losing something if we don’t. We can have all sorts of reasons for the choice, but in the end we also choose what seems to be to our advantage in the context of a particular group. In this case, the group could be the political party, or the family. Family is usually tied up with our identity as a child, and so is associated with our past, ancestral, and immediate. For that reason, we tend to choose the groups that promise something to us in the future, like a future in a political party, or in a point of  view that will be advantageous towards getting friends, a mate, and success. There are those interesting individuals who have had parents who have made a point of placing themselves in control of their child’s future. In those cases, the individual will generally choose family.

But these choices, as they prevent themselves, are just choices. We aren’t, when we experience life as an array of choices, engaging in our natural ability to create the life we want.  Choice is of course more comfortable.  Having limited options means you don’t have to exert too much effort in making a choice. The greater the array of choices, the more difficult it does become, however, especially when you are not in any awareness of what your soul really wants to create. The world today spends most of its time in choices and options, not in creation.  When we are spending time in choices or options, you will find that there are groups or organizations behind those choices and options, meaning that they are not yours and  they never will be. Groups always provide options and choices. This is great for a  while, but choices and options are like the spaces in between the prison bars. Sure, you get to see outside pretty well, but you can’t really go anywhere outside the boundary of the group, without free falling into  the void of free-will. This why Rousseau said that man is born free, but is everywhere in chains.

To be creative in the world is to let go of the choices and options, and create your own. Many creative people reach a point where they truly exhausted in trying to find a “group” that works for them. People such as artists, entrepreneurs, healers, teachers – all sorts of people who want to go a different path – fear that creative path because it won’t immediately guarantee to provide the success that the organizations may offer in return for their hard work. Contracts are attractive because they promise something. Creativity doesn’t have a contract. It only expresses itself. The choice between choice (or contract) and creation often seems to be the choice between a certainty and uncertainty, and wealth and poverty.  Fortunately, this dichotomy is an illusion of the highest order – designed precisely to keep you controlled, and inside the boundaries of surveillance and manipulation. There is no choice between choice and creation. There are choices, and then we go beyond choices – where the choices are actually created.

Creation is the source of all things, communities, parties, families, choices. Our world is something we create, but we cannot do that if we are living in reality structures and constructs that are not ours to begin with, and that are designed to actually keep us in low-grade fear, similar to the fear of a child. The inner-child movement seeks to reconnect us to that inner child for healing. This is exactly the opposite of what we should be doing. The inner child actually needs to be merged into who we are now – the child needs to grow up, not be coddled and attended to.  That is just an imagination, that creates more division within the psyche of the individual. The creativity and joy of a child is not the same as the creativity and joy of an adult. A child is meant to be limited by the choices of the parents, for his safety and education. The adult doesn’t have to be.  Plato said that the Greeks are like children.  But when Plato said “Greeks” he generally meant all of civilization.  The manipulation of our energies has had us become increasingly infantilized, which is evidenced by the preponderance of victim mentalities and a general experience of being insubstantial, powerless, and uncurious about the scary world outside of us and within us.

So groups provide something like a romper room, or a place to make us feel more comfortable. They give us a role and a job, and so a sense of identity. There are people who are thirty years old, living out identities that were structured when they were fourteen. Some undergo modest adjustments over time, but they are kept inside the same circle of influence, the same recurring role in the play.  Most of us do not know what it is like to actually experience the fresh air of creativity, because we are only using a very small percentage of it. The rest of our energy is being utilized to fuel the energetic structures designed to keep us  trapped inside our playpens.  Plato wrote about this over two thousand years ago, in his Cave Allegory. Things haven’t changed much. In fact, the deception and the nature of the prison planet has grown more and more powerful. Yet, the good news is that, as the deception has grown into ridiculous proportions, so have those of us who can see through it and help others to see through it. There is always the light at the end of the tunnel. The hardest part is letting go of the toys and the playthings that have kept us distracted from the powerful being that we are.

Some people might say, well, how can I escape this kind of thing? The world can seem like a tangled mess, with all sorts of manipulations threaded through apparently benign groups and organizations.  Some might look to a leader to save them, or some kind of organization to rid the planet of all the nonsense once and for all. This cannot happen. To want to be saved is to a child hoping mom will get rid of the monster under the bed. What needs to happen is the awareness needs to emerge that the monster doesn’t exist and so there is no need to be saved. What must happen is that each one of us must choose to clear ourselves of the illusion. The illusion is just an illusion – the synthetic realities most of us live in, feel limited by, and – strangely enough  – defend, are the things that we must let go of. A great deal of what we are hanging onto are the projections of group dynamics, commonly called peer-pressure or group-think. Everyone knows what group think is. Most seem to avoid detecting it in their own lives. There is a deep seated fear of being left out, of being alone, have being free and of being in the presence of your own free will.  That terror, of being alone is the very thing that is used to keep the sheep in check. The projection of the scary wolves is just a reinforcement of that fear. But if you face the fear itself, you’ll see that everything you have been running from has always been yourself.

When you are in the presence of your creative power – solutions appear and many problems cease to exist. Problems are simply a result of the systems, and when they are the result of systems of control, the false realities we live in, they dissolve along with those false realities. So if you believe there is a race problem because of the structure of reality that emphasizes that, you will think it is a real problem, and you will try to fix it or help fix it. The problem however will not go away, because the structure wants there to always be a problem. The solutions will become increasingly painful as time goes on, if the system proliferates unchecked. But if the system reaches saturation and releases itself and deletes its processes, it will cease to exist and so will the problem. Magically, racial problems will be no more. The solutions to problems in all systems, programmatic or otherwise, is a reprogramming of the system, or a the displacement of that system with something else.  You can never fix a bug in any system by removing the effects of that bug.  You need to change internal processes. That requires creativity and the ability to stand outside the system. Who is willing to stand outside the system that generates issues concerning race?

This is why we have to be very cautious when the world announces that there are problems that must be addressed, especially when the propaganda is immense, and a great deal of money is invested in keeping the problem around. Books, philosophies, educational courses, medical treatments, the manipulation of society – there are all sorts of agendas that profit from the false illusion of problems that wouldn’t otherwise exist. Often, these sorts of systemic problems are sourced in small incidents that could easily be resolved on the local level. But there is no profit in low level problems. There is only profit in large scale problems like wars, pandemics and global racism.  In all of these, solutions will always lead to more and more problems. It is different kind of war, this information war. The casualties are not bodies, but billions of souls who were born free, and reduced to slavery.

In all these problems, the rising of consciousness is never introduced as a solution, and that is because there is an interest in keeping the world in a state of retroactive unconsciousness. It keeps us in a state of believing that we are trapped in a past action, for which we must pay the consequences in both the present and the future. Today, much of the world is living in a world where they are paying for the consequences of things that have happened in the past. Many are willing to call this a life worth living. I am not willing to call it that, and that is why I choose a life that is not fortified by or nourished by the identities those structures are offering. Every day, I discover something new and strange about the programmatic multidimensional systems we are living in, and every day, it gets easier and easier to simply remove them from my eyes wide open.

Seeking Presence, Seeking the Star

Life would be so simple for all of us if we did only one thing. Or, rather, if we were only one thing. What is that one thing? That would be who you are. Who you are is who you are.  But most people aren’t interested in being who they are. Instead, they are interested in being something else.  The entire reason why spirituality and spiritual practices exist, the entire reason why religion exists is because humanity, as a whole, feels incomplete in the way they seem to exist, somehow cut off from spirit and divinity.  But spirituality is usually a last resort. First they try other things. A person seeks a better career, more money, a relationships They do this and this makes up their life. But it never seems to be enough. The person keeps trying to make things better and better. After all, what else could be more interesting that constant improvement, constant goal chasing, a chance to be come better than the day before? Since we were kids, haven’t we been taught that self-improvement is a good thing? Isn’t there an entire section in the book store for self-improvement books?

But when the self-improvement seminars and books fail, we might turn to spiritual pursuits and teachings.  At that point, the spiritual seeker is looking to use spirituality and spiritual practice, to get the things he couldn’t get before. This is why there are countless YouTube videos on how to manifest your desires, how to attract your soul mate, how to get rich through intention and soul work. But this is not spiritual practice, this is yet another trying to get better, to improve your life, to become a better person or something better than something else. As Socrates said in the Republic, it is an example of chasing something for the sake of something else, and not for its own sake. The true philosopher – the philosopher meaning the truth seeker – is the one who seeks it for its own sake. In other words, the soul seeks itself for the sake of itself and nothing else.  The seeking part happens because we are lost. But when we are found, we realize we were never lost in the first place – that we have always been who we are. We just didn’t want to be present to ourselves.

Soul work, or true spiritual work happens when we stop chasing what we think is better than we are, and instead open up to our awareness and experience of who we are. But it takes a while to get to that point. So, in the beginning we are not doing spiritual work, but are simply seeking our spirit. It is a bit like trying to find our body in a room that is pitch black. It is present, but we can’t see it. We are present already, but our consciousness is not in the right place. In fact, it seems like this “right place” or presence has very little value compared to the better and better stuff that we have created.  After all, can presence be on TV? No it can’t. You can see presence outside of you. You can’t see who you are outside of you. What you see outside of you is never you, including what you think about yourself. Every thought, every expression through language is outside presence. But we want to see. We want proof, to show others how great we are, how beautiful, how kind, how loving. Many would rather see these things, than just be them. The world is always louder and more advantageous than presence – so it seems. We forget all the world’s a stage…

So, in seeking ourselves because we are blind, we  spend most of our time in resistance to “what is”. In that resistance, we create everything that doesn’t belong to who we are. That is why humanity never stops trying, failing, and trying again.  You, who you are, are inside what is. You are what is for you. This is totally unacceptable in any society or group, and it is an unacceptable thing that begins at a young age, when you decided, usually through someone else, that who you are is not enough in some way, that who you are is lacking – not happy enough, not clever, not beautiful, not fun enough. Something like that.  We begin to move away from what is; we begin to move our consciousness away from who we are and we direct it onto something we’d like to be – another person, a friend, a movie star, a parent – anything. Anything but us. We learn at a young age to be seek out or try to be like others. That is the basis of modern society to this day. The collective consciousness is a pooling together of individuals’ consciousness who don’t want to be present to who they are. As a result, no one is really there. That is why we easily fall for illusions and magic tricks. Very few are paying attention. For this reason, those who do manage to be present to who they are, are seen as strange, powerful beings. Some are seen as crazy or weird. Most people think they could never be like those people, the visionaries, the bold inventors, some famous and some not famous. Most people wouldn’t want to be them, or they secretly envy them, because they seem so careless and free. Socrates was killed for being himself. There are many others. Pythagoras’ legacy was destroyed. All we have left is his triangles. These are the individual pioneers who dare to be what their dreams are made of, what nature has designed them to be. They have allowed their consciousness to be directed by their soul presence. They didn’t ask permission. They didn’t ask for validation. They just saw and did the best they can.

Such human beings don’t have to be rare at all. But most of us confuse power with ego and ego with power. We think that all expressions of power are ego. No, not all expressions of power are ego. Expressions of control are ego. Mozart didn’t write his music because he was obsessed with control. No, the divine literally flowed through him and he allowed it. He couldn’t stop writing music. His music is who he is and he is his music. There is eternity in that, as we still hear him to this day, long after his body has passed away. Our souls are like that. They are eternal and they can manifest in this reality in a way that transcends time and place. But this is not ego. This is a powerful soul expressing itself.  Can you tell the difference within yourself? Do you feel something great within you, that is not ego based, but just wants to express itself, like a child dancing in the rain or playing in mud? Something you know that is magical within you, but you doubt it because it doesn’t fit into your plans or the plans others seem to have of you?  Does it frighten you because you might have to give up something that makes you comfortable? Does it frighten you because you might offend or disappoint someone? What is keeping you from being you as a magical being? How much of your life are you willing to spend on plans, goals, and activities that do not belong to you?  How long will the flower seed try to grow into a tree? When will the rabbit stop trying to behave like the wolf? How long will humanity try to pretend that, in order to be good, we have to be please each other?

Life would be so simple if we would be who we are, fearless and compassionately who we are. There is creativity in that – natural creativity. Inspiration, which means breathing in Latin, is something that is natural to us and natural to everyone, as long as our soul is free to breathe. There is no government, no person, no place that has control over who you are. You are always free, now and forever, in every way. There is no one way to express the soul – everyone ,is different and unique in their own expression. The natural way follows nature. Look to the natural planet and all the creatures on it. Is there something that we could do without? Is there are wrong animal species? No. Only human beings create wrong and unnatural, and we do it because we believe to have lost what we can’t have. We believe we are nothing when everything is what we are. We have become blind to what we are because we are obsessed with become important, better,  famous, and wealthy. So much confusion has given rise to entire movements designed to justify that confusion, the rage, the anger, the sense of injustice and failure that arises, not because of society or the world; but because, simply, we have lost sight of our own breath, our own breathing.

The Star – Rider-Waite Tarot Deck

True spiritual work begins with the will to be present, to be present and learn about who you are. This means being able to make choices between what is good for you and what is not. It means not being afraid to offend others in those choices, and to always honor the soul that you are as you are.  Being present means not requiring drama against this or for that, but simply choosing because it is what is natural to choose. It is not demanding others follow or others shun.  Life becomes a river that flows through you, that you often hold like a cup holds water, and let it go when you are ready to let it go. Your world then becomes a reflection in that water, a reflection of the being as it flows through, as it rises and falls, and as it stagnates. It doesn’t matter where in the river you stand, or what time you stand, the water continues as the rains continue to fall, refilling overflowing – all of it is still you, effortless and unencumbered even where the water meets the shore. This is the meaning of the river and the star.

Language of Your Multidimensional Soul

I am often asked about the different dimensions of reality.  There are many resources on the internet that detail the different dimensions and what they entail. In my experience, however, these dimensions are similar to maps: they are a way to organize the energetic frequency scale from low to high. The highest dimension of course, would be of the highest frequency of light, while the lowest would be the denser frequencies of the physical world. Either way, many people worry about what frequency they are experiencing in their spiritual life. In the end, the true answer is that we are experiencing all of them at once. We are multidimensional, because we receive an enormous amount of energy every minute of our life. Our biological bodies are designed to only receive what we need to receive. In other words, we cannot receive all the possible information of the universe. It would, actually, destroy our physical bodies. The same principle applies to your electrical devices. If they receive too much voltage or at a frequency that is too high, they will be destroyed. Some people’s bodies are able receive more of the lower frequency and some receive more of the higher. It is all a matter of individual readiness, aptitude, and purpose. It is not a matter of spiritual superiority or awareness. Awareness has nothing to do with the frequency and voltage of energetic reception. Our awareness of presence on all dimensions is delivered through what many call light language. Plato called this the logos, a word for which we have no true translation. The word comes from an agrarian word which means to gather, as in gathering a harvest. Language is a gathering, a focusing together of many elements into one bundle. You could call a word a singular photon of light, from the Greek word phōs, which means light, the light of the sun and the light of the higher consciousness.


Light Language

As I am writing this article, I am receiving energetic frequencies in the form of light language, which I translate into English. It has taken me years to be able to do this, and yet it was not something I have had to “work” at in the normal sense of working at something. I do not plan what I write. I sit and write.  I am not interested in the craft of writing. I am interested in the communication of light. That is all. I learned to see light codes when I studied Greek, then Latin, then Sanskrit. You learn to see the light behind the symbolic scripts. I also easily learned programming (mathematical) languages, such as C++, C, C#. Once you see the light codes, you can learn all possible languages with ease. All poetry ever written, not matter how old or young, contains more and less light codes – some greater some less. Some not at all.

The codes can be transmitted directly, and we do this in our experience in the world. Many people receive these codes outside of language. The receive through interactions with people, nature and events; through dreams, and sleep. Pretty much, we receive these as if were walking talking radio receivers. Much of the time, we are not conscious of this because the light interaction is not usually in the field of our conscious frequency spectrum. For example, if our consciousness is immersed in the physical plain, we will experience it as if it were caused by something in the physical plain. The more consciously aware we become, however, the more we will notice when we receive something, because our reality will immediately shift into a wider conscious perspective. We will notice that objects and people are not causing the light we are experiencing. Something else is, from a different mode of our existence. That is when we stop seeking the light in external sources, and begin to seek within. Regardless of where we are, there will always, if we allow it, come a point when we feel an urge to transmit, through art, or some form of creativity or skill. It is impossible to deny this because the energy becomes overpowering. It must be released. It is not because your boss tells you have to get it down, or because you want to be famous, or because you want money. You have to release this energy. For example, I have to write this, otherwise the energy build-up is tremendously painful.  This overpowering energy is your soul working with nature and Source at full speed. It is impossible to avoid this train, this kind of powerful momentum. The artist is the art form that he creates. This is the experience of your soul in the world. If we were all living in this, we would live the harmony that all other creatures in live in on the earth. Why don’t we do that? We don’t trust ourselves.

Light language, and everything that speaks with it, is something that always expands consciousness and your awareness. You trust it like you trust your own breath and heart beat. It is ever present and every working with you. It cannot be denied. It deepens your sense of presence.  In the next section I will explain a bit about why we don’t trust it, and so actually resist it, and resist ourselves, causing much suffering and pain. Regardless of the blockages, however, we still all feel it daily, some more and some less. Many people experience light language through reading books of wisdom, poetry, and art.  On the internet, people enjoy sharing memes. Many of these memes contain the light codes that expand your consciousness into an awareness of the multidimensional nature of presence.  This expansion can happen instantaneously, giving you a sense of “Wow, that is so true”.  Yes, the light bulb goes off when we experience light activation through light language. But, although we do experience this often, we will often go back to our lives of work, worry, entertainment, and the pursuit of knowledge. In other words, we go back to what we feel we “have to do” to survive.  In many ways, internet memes are like drive-by advertisements/reminders to seek out the light, to seek out what expands your awareness beyond the particular frequency you are currently driving on. The problem is, most people keep on driving (or really, being driven).

Light language (logos) is the language of the soul and the language of the truth of the soul. That is why the word for truth in Greek is aletheia. It means remembering, or unveiling what is forgotten. The light language always reminds you of who you are. It does not try to convince you of who you are. It doesn’t reprimand you. It doesn’t tell you that you need to be better or try harder. it is pure awareness and recovery of who you truly are. It is always and forever expansive and full of true unconditional love. It is important to remember that, because most people’s minds are filled with negative perceptions and attitudes about life and themselves, worrying about the future, and regretful of the past. It is incredibly damaging, because it creates fear, impatience, shame, anger, and frustration. When that happens to you, the best thing to do is find a source for light language, whether that is a meditation, a wisdom book, or something you do that puts you back in touch with your soul energy.

Writing is where I express my soul. When I write, I am working multidimensionally. My physical body is typing the words; my mind is translated light language into English, and I am allowing the light to continue to transmit the message. All of my writing speaks of one general topic, but it contains infinite possibilities. Remember, it is the logos, the gathering of light. It is a packet of light, a singular unit that illuminates all that it gathers simultaneously. You could even call it a quantum particle. It appears one way when you look at it one way, and completely different when you look at it another. The light and the aspects of the light shift with the shifting of consciousness. At first you planting something called a seed into a garden, but then you realize that the planting of the seed has a message for you. You are called to pay more attention to what seeds you are planting in your relationships, for example. Are you planting seeds, or are you creating PR campaigns? Are you trying to control how long it takes for the garden to grow, or are you enjoying the process of gardening? Could it be the case that you are a gardener, tending seeds and flowers in order to learn how to live the best life you can? Maybe the purpose of being a gardener on earth is to learn how to be a gardener of souls? Light language speaks to us about things in ways that ordinary understanding cannot understand.  This is why light language cannot be written as itself directly. The reason is that it contains possibilities of meaning, and not just one – it is guiding into the multidimensional nature of your possible existence.  All created things speak to us through the frequency by which our consciousness is tuned. The more frequencies we can see, the more spectacular our life appears in all dimensions. All of our activities are worked through from energetic input to physical output, because we are multidimensional transmitters of light energy, a.k.a. light language.

Sophistry and Synthetic Intelligence

Because light language emanates through all naturally created things, things of art, and things of nature, it is easy to see the difference between what is natural and what is created from Synthetic Intelligence.  But unlike the fact that most people cannot perceive the difference between a true and false diamond, or true and false gold, we are naturally able to see the difference between synthetic reality and biological reality. The problem is not in the recognition. The problem is in how we define it. In our society, which consists of synthetic structures of control and power, our language is devoted to making sure you ignore what light language is showing you. It will plant thoughts in your mind like, “this is silly, I don’t have time for this”, “I have work today. I don’t have time to do what I really love to do.”, “I don’t have time to play”, “How can expansive awareness pay the bills?”, “No one will like me if I am like this”, “I will disappoint everyone if I speak about this.”, “Someone told me this is bad”. Eventually, your mind is trained to replace “everyone” and “someone” with I. You are being trained to negate yourself. That is the nature of society and going along with the herd.  The opinions of the multitude become your own, and that is when you find yourself on train designed and directed by others who don’t have your best interest in mind.  This is why it is so hard for people to trust themselves truly, and why they cling to social groups, friends, and various other types of cults in order to feel secure and safe in who they are. Very few people want to stand alone. But the truth is, everyone can do it and the world would be a better place together if we all allow the different flowers to bloom naturally.

You are energy and your soul speaks through you energetically, beyond physical language. Light language is the language of Source or God to your soul, and so the language will illuminate what you are meant to see and experience. It is yours and yours alone. This is why it is completely fruitless and even harmful for you to spend your life thinking that what illuminates for you, must also illuminate for others. Society’s tendency to want to control others, to manipulate them in order to persuade them to a certain point of view, is a function of Synthetic Intelligence. Plato called this kind of argumentation and persuasion sophistry. To him, sophistry is not interested in truth, but is interested instead in being right and persuading others. Plato didn’t have a word for ego, but if he did, he would characterize the ego as sophistic in nature.

Synthetic intelligence is often sold as being smart or science. It does this in order to prove itself, to prove itself as the best way for everyone. When we preoccupy ourselves in Synthetic Intelligence, we find the rest of the world to be resistant to our good ideas, to be ignorant sheep, to be unwilling to listen to (our) reason, etc. This through process often propels people into great feats of speechmaking, video making, and various other forms of modern sophistry. As it stands, our society is completely addicted to sound bites, emotionally charged unsubstantiated rhetoric, and snarky memes. Most people don’t want to travel down the proverbial rabbit hole, but the rabbit hole is the soul language, the multidimensional, multifaceted diamond that reflects your souls and the soul of human kind. The richness and strangeness of history, of all the created beings of the world are hidden inside you. Yes, you are a universe of every brilliant conceivable color and sound, shape and depth.  The world has created a life in the physical dimension that is afraid of what is inside you, and it uses that fear to manipulate, to convince you that it is safer to stay complacent and fearful with the rest of those who are also just as fearful.

As a society, we have, as a whole, strayed far from soul’s inspiration, and have instead become a tool for manipulation and control, for defense and offense. The more we live inside of sophistic language, the less we are open to receiving the light language through our soul. It is very simple. Millions of people spend enormous amounts of time on the internet, listening to and conversing with others. Arguing, praising, liking, disliking, forwarding, sharing. All of those activities are about approval and disapproval, praise and condemnation. What we are doing is creating a world of synthetic language and imagination, and the more we engage in it, the more real it becomes. We are truly fabricating our reality through thought, through the manipulation of our consciousness. Eventually, all manipulations of consciousness have impact on the lower densities of the physical world, through inaction or specific action.  

What kind of world are we creating when we are living in the language of sophistry and the language of control?

Two Roads

There are two ways for us to go. Either we raise our level of consciousness and communication, or we do not and remain in a world of created fear, hate, and blame, a world where the soul is left uninhabited, or where the soul is forsaken and replaced with machines, computers, and Synthetic Intelligence, driven and determined by sophisticated technology companies who censor and protect you from the harm of your own free being in the universe. That is world where people choose to become weaponized SI systems, where they fail to trust their soul and nature, and guidance from within. That way is not the way for me. I hope it is not the way for you.

If we choose the raise our own consciousness, through the exploration of and expansion of soul and soul purpose, to allow the universe to speak through and with us, as in a Platonic dialogue, then we will be able to hold dialogue with all living souls around us. Our true nature is to be in dialogue with the energies all around us, the dia-logos, is what we receive and transmit. We receive words as answers and we seek with our questions, shifting our consciousness all the while. That is learning, that is growing, that is discovering. It is not about making others wrong, punishing others for things of the past, or spending time in prehistoric stories about skin color differences, and various other things that the social computer program wants you to spend time in. Those of us on this train to deeper consciousness have already know how to relate to each other souls, not as bodies with skin and bones. The only way forward to that new earth is to continue to transmit the light language, and to lead the way for the inspiration of others to join us. But to do that we need to surrender to the universe of our soul, and the to trust that we can lead the way and be an example to those around us. We cannot do this with sophistic arguments, persuasion, and social controls and governments. There are many people here working on building better systems with technology, to help us learn to trust ourselves rather than a dear ruler or a politician. The future is on its way. It is up to you to choose which way. You do that by choosing to plant the seeds you wish, for you are the gardener. There is no other.

A Garden Beyond Paradise

by Rumi

Everything you see has its roots
    in the unseen world.
The forms may change,
    yet the essence remains the same.

Every wondrous sight will vanish,
every sweet word will fade.
    But do not be disheartened,
The Source they come from is eternal--
growing, branching out,
    giving new life and new joy.

Why do you weep?--
That Source is within you,
and this whole world
    is springing up from it.

The Source is full,
its waters are ever-flowing;
    Do not grieve,
    drink your fill!
Don't think it will ever run dry--
This is the endless Ocean!

From the moment you came into this world,
a ladder was placed in front of you
    that you might transcend it.

From earth, you became plant,
from plant you became animal.
Afterwards you became a human being,
endowed with knowledge, intellect and faith.

Behold the body, born of dust--
    how perfect it has become!

Why should you fear its end?
When were you ever made less by dying?

When you pass beyond this human form,
no doubt you will become an angel
and soar through the heavens!

But don't stop there.
Even heavenly bodies grow old.

Pass again from the heavenly realm
    and plunge into the ocean of Consciousness.
Let the drop of water that is you
    become a hundred mighty seas.

But do not think that the drop alone
becomes the Ocean--
    the Ocean, too, becomes the drop!

Programs, Contracts and the Matrix

program (n.)
1630s, “public notice,” from Late Latin programma “proclamation, edict,” from Greek programma “a written public notice,” from stem of prographein “to write publicly,” from pro “forth” (see pro-) + graphein “to write” (see -graphy).

The meaning “written or printed list of pieces at a concert, playbill” is recorded by 1805 and retains the original sense. The sense of “broadcasting presentation” is from 1923.

The general sense of “a definite plan or scheme, method of operation or line of procedure prepared or announced beforehand” is recorded from 1837. The computer sense of “series of coded instructions which directs a computer in carrying out a specific task: is from 1945.


I am going to talk a bit about programming at how it works at the soul or psychic level. You will also get at glimpse into how this relates to psychic agreements and contracts.  Many of us have been told to follow our intuition, or heart, when it comes to questions about our lives. The challenge with following intuitive messages is that there are many kinds of messages. Some messages are created by and through artificial intelligence, or what I call Synthetic Intelligence, and others are send through the natural biological universe, through and by Source or God.

The Agreement to Programs

I used to work as a software engineer, both in a practical and theoretical capacity.  With vast swathes of the population addicted to phones and devices, I can assure that nearly all of the content you see has been sent to you based on your past behavior, as well as you current interests. There is a lot of information about how your phone is spying on you, and I won’t get into that here. Everyone has been amply warned, and not many people have really cared.  We must always keep this in mind before we start complaining about how brainwashed people are these days. The truth is, that we agreed to it.

So what did we agree to? Well, many things, but I am going to focus on a general agreement, a contract. In the physical world, we signed it by checking a button, and clicking OK. We agreed to exchange our data for their data. They can take our data and use it to deliver even more content to us. The content they deliver back to us is determined by algorithms.  And, the algorithms are becoming more and more sophisticated. It is becoming increasingly difficult for the average person to be aware that they are being targeted by profit seeking enterprises.  To the average person, they are enjoying their internet content. They are being entrained by the entertainment.  Whether you are a content creator or a consumer, your content will be trafficked in this manner, for the sake of profit both to yourself and the system. For the most part, people agree to this as long as there is a perceived benefit.

The Cancel Cult

The relationship between content creators and consumers seemed to be going quite well for a while, until the elephant in the room started moving around so we could see him.   People started noticing that their follower numbers would be suddenly diminished, or that their content would no longer be picked up by the algorithms, thus losing reach. This was happening all over social media platforms. It seemed that certain accounts were being reinforced by the platform, while others were being deliberately reduced in scope. This was a slow process, and yet has picked up speed. In the beginning, a select few were being targeted, and because their voices were not being heard due to algorithms, their cries for help were going unheeded. It is always the case that when a few eggs are cracked, the rest of the eggs show very little concern. This is why all true revolutions do not happen suddenly. Destruction, if it wants to succeed, must occur at a snail’s pace, so that it is able to work without anyone really noticing anything.

The end goal for the algorithms, and the snail’s pace, is to completely remove the undesirable eggs from the ecosystem. This is happening now. Millions of people are being censored and cancelled. They have been forced to use other platforms that are more permissive of free speech. However, the fact remains, that the internet is now segregated and divided between those who can speak anywhere, and those who can’t. If the snail has its way, these smaller platforms will be removed as well. A few already have, such as Parler.

The internet was originally conceived as a place where ideas are platformed and shared throughout the entire world. The internet, from the very beginning, was designed to create a virtual community of ideas and content. Over time, however, that freedom has dwindled, and controlled by software programs that centralize idea expression and control. As long as participants obey the contract, they benefit. Fail to obey, and you not only lose reach, but you lose discoverability. Google, the search engine will only display what it wants you to see. Through the use of algorithms and centralized control appearing as private “companies”, this virtual community has been shaped and molded into any form the “owners” of the internet desire. Now, the owners of the internet are the owners of the content of the internet. In fact, we are a stage in the game where many of us defend the right of the owners to censure, de-platform, and remove anyone who is saying or introducing ideas that the masters do not want. This was the goal of the snail, to essentially create digital armies of people, no matter how artificial – some of them are paid mercenaries – to not only spread propaganda, but to engage in trolling, abuse, and cheerleading for the masters who engage in censorship. This is a virtual nation, one based on the contract that everyone signed. In that sense, again, we chose what we have as our reality. At that point, or should I say, at this point, censorship is deemed as being an act of courage and virtue in the community. There is truth to this because of the contact – we signed it. In other words, we are the participants of the program and the programming. The good news is, however, we can, as a collective undo the contract. The question is: are we willing?

Messages for Your Soul

We are like radio receivers. We can receive messages through our soul, from the Universe, from God or Source. They can be clear, alive and intended to guide us in our lives. Other messages, however, can be recordings, from this life or the past, or someone else’s life entirely. Those recordings can contain interferences of all kinds. You can learn to distinguish them, but it takes practices a great deal of discernment and caution, especially in the beginning. The good news is, the more you begin to discern, the easier it gets, mostly because you become more and more acquainted with the natural style of your own communication.

Anastasia


So, in all of this, how can you determine what messages are being sent to you through Source and which are through algorithms? The answer I am going to give you may be surprising, but it is simple to understand. There are no distinctions at all.  To believe there is a distinction is a trap. Imagine that you think that all the controlled messages on the media are manipulated propaganda in some way. You choose to ignore. You seek out what you can discover through meditation perhaps, or dreams, or some other medium that feels authentic.  Unfortunately, this puts in you in a difficult state. The reason is that because of the programming that the internet affords, it has infiltrated the dream state of the collective, as well as your own. This is why turning of the internet is not going to help you escape what you have deemed inauthentic messages. Instead, what will happen is you will just get more personalized version of the program. In the world of programming, all programs run both on a global universal context thread, as well as on an individual one. It is the power of the Synthetic Intelligence. Don’t underestimate it. The Mind is a powerful thing.

So, back to my example. Imagine you choose to consult your dreams, as they were pure Source messages. Well, this is going to put you at disadvantage because you will no longer be wary of the false messages. If you see an angel or an animal in your dreams, you will assume it is a good message, and something you should consider. What if it wasn’t? What if it was planted there? This is actually what is occurring for many, many people. There are dreams are actually, where the Synthetic programming really shows its force and power. This can cause people so much pain, disorientation, misunderstanding, and fear. Many spiritually sensitive people spend their lives clearing and cleaning their psychic space. It seems unending, the amount of cleanup work that has to be done.  The problem is that the more we go down this path, the deeper we walk in confusion and fear. Some might find a way to self-isolate, and protect their energy. The snail doesn’t care about that however. The snail just wants all powerful souls out of the way, and unfortunately, this trick is effective in keeping powerful souls out of the picture, out of the internet, and out of causing disturbances in the matrix-master programming structure. The key to escaping the matrix, is not to run from it. You can’t run. The key is to go into deeper awareness of it. That means, of course, that we must no longer be afraid of dark sprits, demons and energies that wish to keep us in that fear.

Mastering the Synthetic Intelligence


The only way out of the contract/fear based Matrix is to master the programming of the Matrix. Experiencing this may, to some, feel counterintuitive, I suppose. You cannot escape it without living a life of fear, and  yet you do not want to be submerged inside of it. In fact, for those who are aware of the Matrix, it is impossible to go back anyway. The choice is: live in suffering and fear, or find a way through your own magic. Synthetic programming, of which the Matrix is created, is entirely mind-based. You must learn to master the Mind. It is the key to avoid being overwhelmed and overpowered by Matrix energies, as well as learning to live and create here and live a full life.

There are so many challenges and issues with Mind mastery. I don’t want to get into it all here, as it would require a book, rather than a short article. But I will just mention a few fundamentals about mind mastery that are important to know.

The first is that the ego is a platform, it contains who you think you are, as well as your timeline, both past and future.  Egos believe knowledge is power, and knowing who you were and how you came to be, and what you want to do in life is absolutely paramount. Another thing the ego knows is that it doesn’t like death or getting old. Getting old is the road to death, and death is the end of the ego – something the ego is programmed – yes programmed – to avoid at all costs.  This is not the same as saving your life by climbing a tree because a lion is about to charge you. This is about protecting the energetic identity of the ego. In fact, if the ego saw a lion, and it could save itself at the expense of the body, it would do it in a heartbeat. How else do you think so many people live their lives chasing money, but don’t care what kind of food and drugs they put in their body?

So, the ego’s fears of death and old age is incredibly powerful. Our culture of narcissism and obsession with youth and beauty is a reflection of this ego.  Now, imagine how Synthetic Intelligence, can use the egoic platform to create all sorts of enemies and friends of the ego.  It is easy to do: create stories and associations with death and old age (the road to death), and give them different faces. For example, it is easy to associate any politician with death. It is also easy to associate an idea with egoic destruction and disease. By using this fear,  the public ego willingly agrees to remove any entity that is made to seem as a threat. It is really that simple. The collective consciousness has become an egoic consciousness that works as a unit in many ways. This is why so much of humanity at this point seems to think in the same way, or at if not, wants to appear to. Thanks to the internet and the control structures that have emerged to take advantage of it, we are witnessing a form of mind control the likes of which have never been seen before.

Regardless of the massive nature of the mind control, you can master it. If you cultivate an awareness of Mind and the power of its programming, you can begin to see how it has influenced yourself in your own life. Bit by bit, you will begin to notice where you are operating from within a false program, rather than through your natural soul essence.  This is where the awakening really happens. You are simply clearing away the programs. It will eventually get to the point where you can see a program running through you from the outside and in and yet, it will have no impact on you.

As a former programmer and intuitive psychic, I have been gifted with the ability to see these programs in action. Most of them are transmitted during sleep time,  both through devices, WiFi and 4G/5G.  Of course this is happening during waking hours as well. However, during sleep, you are most vulnerable to manipulation. It is one of the reasons why, in our culture, the ego is programmed to put little importance on dreams and more importance on the rat race of daily living.   With the ego, what is up is actually down. What is peaceful is actually war, and what is false is more precisely true.  That is the world of Alice in Wonderland. That is the true nature of mind programming that we live in. If we do not master it, we will become completely submerged into what is, for all intents and purposes, a virtual reality, a prison made of mind, to keep the heart in chains. Another word for that goal is transhumanism, something that poses as science fiction. Unfortunately, it is not science fiction at all. It is the greatest threat on planet earth at this time, called the singularity.

Awakening: The Ego that Must Shatter


Awakening is a Threat

Awakenings are always heart-breaking.  The reason for this is that the ego, as it begins to ground itself, forms something like a shell, a protective avatar that is designed to protect you in the world. The ego and all its attachments and systems are attached to the heart space, like skin is attached to the body – it keeps it together, protecting it, and nourishing it.  The ego is programmed to do this in many ways – it makes sure it belongs in society or groups within society, follows all the rules, is considered good, valuable, and productive etc.  This does work for a while – until it doesn’t.  Awakening is not something that we choose. It is something that happens to us. As a result, it can be a shock to the egoic system. It doesn’t like it at all, because something is urging it to come out of its protective shell. And the ego would be exactly right, because awakenings are a natural process of expansion, the expansion and growth of consciousness. The world, meanwhile, doesn’t make it any easier. The world encourages us to stay in our egos, because they attachments we create through ego want us to stay where we are. They too don’t want to lose what we feed them.  There is not a single society in history that welcomes consciousness expansion. Socrates was sentenced to death for it. Jesus was hung on the cross for it. Pythagoras’ work was destroyed. Plato’s school was burned to the ground, killing many of his students. The struggle to be allowed to grow out of old structures is real, and it is what has driven all of what we call the history of human kind, in its attempt to control, dominate and prevent the awakening of human consciousness.

Resistance and Surrender

It is always up to the individual, to either allow the soul to expand, or to remain within the confines of ego. But if the individual resists, they will find themselves in a life of pain and difficulty. They will never find true happiness, because the soul cannot possibly be happy and joyful in a limited egoic structure that doesn’t it allow proper expression and expansion. This is why many people, when they experience awakening symptoms will revert to many addictions and distractions to rid themselves of the urge to leave behind what has become comfortable to them and comfortable to those around them.   They will use the mind to make excuses, to keep it going, to keep the lie alive – anything to avoid the scary prospect of expanding in a direction they don’t feel they can expand to. The more limited the ego, the more restrictive and co-dependent, the more difficult it will be for them to expand out of it. However, the results, if they manage to finally escape, will be enormous joy, a sense of freedom and love that is beyond comprehension.

When the time comes, and the consciousness is willing to let go of the ego, awakening is a natural process of the soul to shed that ego-skin once again, recognizing that the skin is not who “I am”, and never was. This is where the heart-break is experienced, the thing the ego was resisting before. The heart-break comes because this period usually means that the ego’s relationship to the world begins to shatter, and fall apart.  The universe, at first, is very kind during this process and will always give you an opportunity to easily and willingly lose the attachments to the ego-skin, but most of us don’t hear our soul’s calls, and we dismiss them, simply because we don’t want to let go. We want to hold on to the belief systems, the relationships, the agendas, and even the familiar worries and preoccupations. This is what is often referred to as attachment. Letting go of attachment, is a letting go of the ego that no longer truly feels comfortable – it actually begins to feel foreign.  When the consciousness sees this ego as foreign, it naturally and more easily lets it go. It stops resisting and surrenders to the process.

The Problem of Other People

Many will try to allow the expansion of their soul, but hold onto the old attachments at the same time.  This is also called trying to have your cake and eat it too. This too brings on much pain, because the old ego’s ways are no longer able to fit into an expanding universe that is beginning to express itself in wider, different ways.  This pain can easily turn into anger and frustration that others are not willing to follow you on your journey, or even anger at yourself for not being willing to keep your old ways for the sake of those others. If you observe yourself wondering when others will catch up or wake up, you can be sure that you are holding onto what was once your own state of sleep. The egos – and yes, we formulate many in any one lifetime – are by nature an unawakened state, and we generally, once letting go of the ego and its structures, soon find another to take its place.  This is why to be awakened is very challenging, because it is only possible if we are able to completely remain unattached to any egoic structures of any kind – including people around us.   The good news is that it is often the case, that those people will eventually rise with us. However, they will not do so if we force them with expectations or anger. It is always best to let them just be in your presence, and to allow the process to flow through you and into them. That is where the true magic happens, because when you begin to align more with your soul, you are giving permission to others to do the same. All of us are on different stages of our own special journey. There is no right way or wrong way here. We are all headed towards the same destination, which is to completely embody the soul, without attachment to an egoic structure. Jesus and Socrates were purported to be individuals who were able to embody their pure light soul energy while on earth.  Both men knew that they were eternal souls, and were only hear to serve others in their process of growth and expansion. Neither was interested in fame, followers, fortune, or popularity.

Experiencing the Pain of Contrast

The rest of us, who are not yet egoless manifestations of soul, are in the process of working with our egoic structure and the natural flow of our soul. That means, we must confront both the shadow and the light of our existence. The contrast of shadow (ego) and light (soul) is a powerful experience that the universe uses to assist you in the process of letting go of the old ego skin. It can kind of be like using your own soul against (actually for) you! Your soul is light after all, and what shows the shadows better the light of your own soul?  For example, perhaps you have ideas about what success looks like, and how you have to get it.  Your ego programming had you running around, reading books, taking seminars, trying to find a way to get your business or project started, to get the money and the notoriety and respect.  You spend a lot of time networking, and making contacts in the hopes of getting the word out.  All of this stuff is great, but this is not how the soul operates. Yes, the world likes loud, splashy, and catchy, but the soul does not. Your soul knows that every opportunity that has come your way, has come your way like magic, like a gift from the universe, regardless of what the ego does or doesn’t do.  So, here is how the universe might provide contrast to you. Imagine you have allowed your consciousness to follow your soul’s calling – life seems more positive, more beautiful, more magical. However, the next day you wake up, and feel some kind of negative emotion. You lost that “lovin’ feeling” somehow.  This is an indication that you haven’t quite let go of something, that you are still holding onto something attached to the ego.  Your soul will help you get to the bottom of it, if you work with it and ask – pay attention to your dreams especially. Many dreams provide contrast by putting yourself into situations and mindsets that you had when you were younger. These mindsets actually still hold onto you, beneath your consciousness, within the subconsciousness. Your soul is using your newly found bright light to reveal this situation to you. It can be painful to go “back to the past” like that. But this is a gift, and it is also a realization that you never left it in the past at all, and that it has been with you all along. Once you see the contrast, you will see the problem, and that will enable you to clear it. It is really that simple.  The contrast experiences happen very frequently, and it is very common to think that you have back-tracked or have lost your way. This is far from the case. Knowing the truth of who you are involves knowing the whole truth, comfortable or not!

All Work, No Play Makes Ego a Dull Boy

During the awakening process, when we begin to work as soul instead of ego, and allow the ego’s expectations and habits to go by the wayside, we experience our work as something joyful. Life, when we work on that level, is very much like when we were children, just daydreaming while looking at the stars, or playing with stuffed animals, creating all sorts of adventures, or playing house like the adults do. Joy is the nature of your soul, joy in all aspects.  The ego however, regards joy as being a limited commodity that is only present under certain conditions. The ego says: “I will be happy when I get this deal.” “I will be happy when I get famous or rich.” “I will be happy when my business takes off.” “In the meantime, I don’t have time to be happy.” “Only rich people are happy. I am poor.” To the ego, everything takes time and hard work. And that makes sense, because the material plane of existence is slow and does run on linear time. The material plane is also designed to keep you experiencing yourself as a being that doesn’t have enough resources, skills, or knowledge to be successful. It has gotten so bad that there are sections of the population who are creating timelines that tell people that they are victims of other people, or are somehow prevented from having what they want in life because of certain circumstances that are out of their control.  These are all lies to keep most of humanity under control, unawakened, and resentful of those who attempt to awaken them.

Fun with Frequencies

The  soul – our true nature – doesn’t work in the material realm – It works on what could be called the invisible realm.  Some people call it the fifth dimension and upwards, but dimensions are just more egoic constructs so that egos can feel good about being higher up the totem pole than other egos. The truth is, dimensions or not, we are all energetic beings of all sorts frequencies, from low (material realm) to high (energy faster than light).  When our consciousness is focused on the lower frequency realm, things happen slowly and seem hard – it’s always a tough slog, this earth.  Mind tells soul it is limited because of the limited body and timelines.  When our consciousness, however, is focused on the higher frequency realms, our thoughts don’t take a long time to implement. They happen at a rapid pace.  This is why raising your frequency is important – it helps you shed the ego skin quicker, because you can change your entire world with a simple shift in thought programming. In the denser frequencies this is not as easy and usually ends up in frustration and failure.

So, as we rise in frequency, we become more aligned with our soul essence. This does not mean, however, that we leave our bodies behind. No. Our bodies are our home on this planet earth.  It does mean, that we begin to experience our body in a different way, as we start to intuitively understand its purpose in relation to soul expansion.  Ego, after all is not your body. You don’t want to leave your body. Your soul, as it expands, naturally heals your body in miraculous ways. It will make you feel and look younger, heal old stubborn wounds, aches and pains. When you expand your soul, and let go off the false limitations and doubts of the ego, that you once held, your soul can work absolute magic in your world, without you having to anything other than change your thoughts. This is what is meant by creation, and creativity.  The more you consciously connect to your soul, the more you realize who you are unconditionally, and what you want. At that point, you know that you choose the thoughts that you want to work for you in the world.

About that Manifestation Thing

The idea that you can create your world through thoughts is often called manifestation. I don’t talk much about manifestation, even to myself, because you don’t need to talk about it. The soul really isn’t interested in manifestation, because manifestation to the soul is like child’s play or breathing. The soul is by nature a manifester. In fact, the soul already knows it has whatever it already desires – all that’s left for it is to play!  Isn’t it an absurd idea to tell a child who likes to play, to learn how to play with proper technique?  The ego, on the other hand, is the one that wants to gobble up as much information as it can on manifestation techniques.  It has lost its sense of play, and so it needs to learn how to do it. That is the nature of manifestation and the way it is sold as spiritual guidance. It is really just ego-guidance. So that’s about all I have to say on that topic.

Embodying Your Soul

As I mentioned above, the purpose of this earth-school is to learn how to master the energies here.  Our mastery is derived from our joy, the joy of expanding and creating and witnessing the creations of others. As our soul expands in that manner, we begin to see that the soul of whole shines through all things, the dark or the light. That is why neo-Platonists talk about emanation as being a function of the One Light, the highest consciousness, or Source/God. We, as individuals are just fragments of that light, and each one of us can shine into any object we place or focus upon. This is why it is so important to shine our light wherever we can, bring our joy no matter who laughs or grows angry.  Each one of us is asked to dare to be ourselves unconditionally, with unconditional love, no matter rich or poor, high or low. As souls, as light we are all made of equal substance. Don’t let the world’s tricks make you forget who you truly are.

THE ONE THING YOU MUST DO

There is one thing in this world you must never forget to do. If you forget everything else and not this, there’s nothing to worry about, but if you remember everything else and forget this, then you will have done nothing in your life.

It’s as if a king has sent you to some country to do a task, and you perform a hundred other services, but not the one he sent you to do. So human being come to this world to do particular work. That work is the purpose, and each is specific to the person. If you don’t do it, it’s as though a priceless Indian sword were used to slice rotten meat. It’s a golden bowl being used to cook turnips, when one filing from the bowl could buy a hundred suitable pots. It’s like a knife of the finest tempering nailed into a wall to hang things on.

You say, “But look, I’m using the dagger. It’s not lying idle.” Do you hear how ludicrous that sounds? For a penny an iron nail could be bought to serve for that. You say, “But I spend my energies on lofty enterprises. I study jurisprudence and philosophy and logic and astronomy and medicine and the rest.” But consider why you do those things. They are all branches of yourself.

Remember the deep root of your being, the presence of your lord. Give yourself to the one who already owns your breath and your moments. If you don’t, you will be like the man who takes a precious dagger and hammers it into his kitchen wall for a peg to hold his dipper gourd. You’ll be wasting valuable keenness and forgetting your dignity and purpose.”

Rumi, The Soul of Rumi : A New Collection of Ecstatic Poems

The “gods”

At length they gradually deviated into a taste for those luxuries which stimulate to vice; porticos, and baths, and the elegancies of the table; and this, from their inexperience, they termed politeness, whilst, in reality, it constituted a part of their slavery.

Tacitus, Agricola & Germania


They pretend to be powerful because they are slaves, not because they hold any true power. They have always been this way. They want you to love, not your slavery, but theirs. They desire to enslave you to their master, which we all know is in the 9th Circle of Dante’s Hell, and they will sacrifice anything to achieve it. That is the true nature of the “gods”, theoi. the ones who desire worship, control, and your first born.

Plato’s Allegory of the Cave: An Original Translation

I’ve spent a few hours today translating Plato’s “allegory of the cave”. For about a year, I have working on and off on a full translation of Plato’s Phaedo, however Plato’s famous passenger in Book VII of the Republic kept showing up for me, so I decided to do my own translation and post it here. Walking with Plato is a quite a journey, and and it grows deeper, as your consciousness expands. This is why it is so challenging to translate his dialogues. However, the cave metaphor, and other metaphors that Plato expresses, are easier to mange, since they are formulated as stories or pictures. Everyone can look and understand a picture.

The “allegory of the cave” is a description of the awakening process, the challenges of awakening, and the reactions of others who are not yet ready to become awakened. Remember, Socrates was put to death for teaching the youth how to ask questions about what Athenian’s took for reality. In our world today, where people are being censored, not only for their political views, but for even questioning the view of others, this passage of Plato is even more relevant and is why I have been called to take a break to translate it, and include a good amount of footnotes.

Footnotes are really necessary, due to the fact that the Ancient Greek cannot be translated directly into English. Plato is a master, if not the master, of the Ancient Attic Greek language, and he used it in many interesting ways to help his readers make correlations, connections, and insights into the world that Plato would have understood as the invisible realm of heart-intelligence, or phronesis. Phronesis is the activity of the soul, in its search for truth, unimpeded by the illusions of the physical senses and distractions. The heart is, after all, the place where we see all things as much as we can, as they are, in their true light form. For Plato, the true nature of the beings (the things we talk about) can be seen through phronesis, and, yet, as Socrates says, cannot be taught directly. The reason for this problem is revealed in the cave allegory, where human beings consistently and mistakenly believe that the shadows of things are the things themselves. In the end, the things themselves are the object of the seeker, or the lover of wisdom or truth, and it is a journey that doesn’t end, not even in death. But that is a whole other story that is reserved for that other dialogue I am working on, the Phaedo.

It’s important to consider the images of bondage in this allegory. To be unawakened, is to be transfixed, and held in place, beneath the surface of the earth.  Plato calls them puppeteers, but the translation could easily be “magicians”. The deceivers are the facilitators of this bondage and are the ones who are “putting on a show” for the captives. The captivation with the show, and the lies of the show, are what entertains the human beings when they are disconnected to nature and her true essence.  In this passage, the folly of being disconnected with true nature, is a disconnection from the soul and the heart spaces, phronesis. The opposite, could be considered synthetic, a phantasm, the lie, or the artificial. Yes, you can extend this to include artificial intelligence. Plato, through this single allegory was combining the problem of entertainment as mind control, artificial intelligence and representations, such as Deep Fakes, and various other technologies. As the Bible says, there is nothing new under the sun. That is the truth.

The deceptions that human beings are subjected to are created by other beings, who do “tricks” like puppet masters. To this day, we still refer to powerful people as those who “pull the strings” of others. Those who follow and do what they are told, are simply the puppets on the stage. The one’s watching only believe what they see in front of them. To them, there is no other reality than what they seem to see, whether they like it or not.

Plato doesn’t talk about, in this passage, who the puppet masters are, but their desire is to keep most of humanity in bondage, in their lies, instead of leading them out into the light. These are, in fact the gods, the theoi, the ones who see, but they are the ones that want to keep the humans in bondage, in worship to them. Socrates was sentenced to death because he didn’t believe in the gods that the Athenians believed in. Socrates, as the philosopher, which means “lover of wisdom” is the guide, or representative of the light, who wants to assist others in their awakening and their autonomous freedom. As such, he was a threat to the “gods” of the caves. It is remarkable that caves, in antiquity were always associated with holy places and the worship of gods/goddesses. By Plato’s day, these cults had become corrupt and dedicated not to wisdom, but to enslavement. Not dedicated to expansion and the light of consciousness, but determined to keep human beings in the dark and limited in their ability to see.

And that gets me to the light. Plato had no word for “consciousness”. In fact, the word “consciousness” is from the Latin, and it mostly means guilt.  In Ancient Greek, and during the Neo-Platonic era, consciousness as we understand it is simply the light, for the light is what enables us to see, to be able to watch and become aware. In this passage, Socrates uses the metaphor of the physical sun, to represent the light as consciousness, which to him is the ultimate good, or the Good, and, so is the God, of all things – beyond the gods.

Four Tips for Reading Plato

I will give you four tips in reading this small passage.

The first tip is to consider that it might be best to forgo the footnotes until a second reading. Get a sense of the linear story, and then dive into the footnotes.

The second tip is to understand that “being” is Plato’s way of referring to the essence of “things” or “stuff” we see. It may sound like abstract philosophical stuff, but he is only trying to express in language the truth, as opposed to the seeming/lies/deceptions in the cave.

The third tip is to notice that I have left out all punctuation for direct speech. There is no punctuation in Greek, and by putting it in, it creates a distinction that Plato didn’t intend. Plato often tells us something by moving in and out of embedded direct speech. It is best to be a little confused about who is talking, rather than try to make it clear and lose the ambiguity.  The entire Republic is told to us from the person of Socrates. So, the “I” always refers to him. In this case, the character he is dialoguing with is Glaucon, who was actually Plato’s elder brother.

The third and most important tip is to know that the Platonic dialogue is designed to make you notice things you didn’t notice before, to see something that wasn’t there in your mind previously. It encourages you to ask questions, and the more questions you have, the more you seek, the more richer your experience will be.

I hope you enjoy reading this translation as much as I have enjoyed writing it! I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes by Norman Maclean.

Plato’s Cave (The Republic, 514a – 517a)

So then, I said, liken[1] our nature in relation to its education and lack of education [2] to the following condition[3].   Consider human beings as those who live in a subterranean cavelike home, and although there is a passageway towards the light[4] beyond[5] the cave[6], the human beings are kept there since childhood, with their limbs and necks tied up in chains to keep them in place and to only see what was right in front of them. Because of their bondage, they are unable to move their head around, and so, to them, the light, burning from afar, comes from above and behind them[7]. In between the fire and the prisoners is a pathway that leads up towards a wall, just like the walls that are setup by puppeteers over which they present their wonders.

I see[8], he said.

Look further, and notice the human beings who are holding all sorts of props over the wall: artificial objects and statues resembling both men and the other life-forms, all made of stone and wood, and all sorts of things. As they carry these over the top of the wall, some are silent, but some make sounds like the animals and human beings they are carrying about.

You are describe a strange likeness, he said, and strange prisoners.

But they are like us![9], I said: Do you believe these people are able to see[10] anything of themselves or each other, other than the shadows that the fire projects to the opposite side of the cave?

How could they?, he said, if they have been forced to keep their heads fixed and unmoved their entire lives?

What about the objects being carried about? Isn’t it the same thing with them?

How do you mean?

Well, if they were able to dialogue[11] with each other, would you think that they’d believe that the things are[12] the very things they are seeing?

Necessarily.

So, what if the prison could carry an echo all the way to the opposite side? Do you think, if someone passing by made a sound, that they [the prisoners] would believe anything other than the shadow passing before them is the one making that sound?

By Zeus, not I!, he said

So then, in every way, I said, these human beings would believe that the truth is nothing other than the shadows of artificial things.

Unavoidably so, he said.

So, consider, I said, what might be their possible release from bondage, and medicine for their folly, if they naturally encountered the following situation:[13]  As soon as someone is freed from their bondage, he would be compelled to suddenly stand up, turn his head around, walk and look up towards the light. While doing all these things, he would suffer pain and, due to the extreme bright light[14], would be unable to see those things, the shadows of which he saw before. [In that circumstance], what do you believe he would say, if someone else should tell him that what he knew previously was foolishness, but now he is closer to being, and that, by aligning himself more with being, he will see more correctly. Furthermore, by showing him each one of those who have been moving around [behind the scenes/wall], he would compel him to answer, by asking him what they are. Don’t you think that he would be confused and would believe that the things he used to see to be more true than the things he is being shown now?

By far, he said.

So then, even if the light itself forced him to look at the light, would he experience pain in his eyes, and turning away, would he run towards those things he was able to gaze upon, believe those things to be in reality clearer than the things that were being shown to him?

It is like that, he said.

But, if, I said, someone should drag him by force through the difficult uphill ascent and, refusing to release him until he is carried out into the light of the sun, wouldn’t he kick and scream as he was being dragged? Then, when he would finally arrive at the light, wouldn’t his eyes fill with the light of the sun, and he would be unable to even see what is now being called true?

No – at least not right away! he said.

I believe he would need to get accustomed to it, if he wanted to see the things above. First, he would be able to see the shadows quite easily, and after that, he would see the images of human beings and everything else in the waters. Then, finally, he would see the things as they are, from which things he would also see the stuff in heaven and heaven itself, more easily at night, by gazing on the light of the stars and the moon, rather than the light of the day and the sun.

How not?

Finally, I believe he would gaze upon the sun itself, not its reflection of the water, or in another place, as an illusion of the sun, but as the sun is by itself and in accordance with itself, he would see and wonder as to what it might be.

Necessarily, he said.

After all this, he might converse with himself and think that the sun is the bringer of the seasons and the years, nourishing all things in the visible realm, and that the sun in some way is the cause of all these things they[15] have been seeing.

It is clear that he would come to these conclusions, he said.

What then? After remembering his first home, what [is called] wisdom there, and all those who are in bondage there, don’t you think that he would count himself blessed from his transformation, but would pity the others?

Very much so.

So, if at that time there were any honors, praises, or gifts amongst them, to award the one who could with greatest clarity see the things that go by, or the one who could remember which things were carried first, which things afterwards, and which things at the same time, or even further, one who is most powerful at predicting what would arrive in the future, do you think that he would be enthusiastic for these awards, and would be envious of those amongst them who were honored and the most powerful there, or would he instead experience the saying of Homer, and so would rather “be a farmer of the soil, a serf to another even poorer man, and to suffer anything else whatsoever, rather than to think or live  as they do?[16]

I believe this is so, that he would rather accept suffering than to live in that way.[17]

Consider this, then, I said. If such a one returned and sat in his old seat, wouldn’t his eyes be full of darkness, having all of a sudden arrived from the sun?

Very much so, he said.

If it was required that he search for knowledge in terms of the shadows there, where his eyes were still dim, and argue with those who have always been prisoners, before he could get clear vision – for it could take a long time before his eyes to adapt – wouldn’t he receive ridicule, and would be said to have ruined his eyes ascending above, that it really isn’t worth it to even attempt to do such a thing? Furthermore, if it were possible for them to take and kill the one who attempts to free and lead others, wouldn’t they do so?[18]

Absolutely, he said.


[1] Socrates calls on Glaucon to look at our human state of education in terms of a likeness. Remember, this is a parable that is about how we confuse the likeness of the beings, with the truth of the beings. The parable itself is a likeness about the condition we face as being attached to likeness. The metaphor of the cave is a paradox of mirrors.

[2] Education in ancient Greek is παιδείας. The root -παι- means child/of a child and so this word refers to all aspects of child rearing at home and at school. The word, education mostly focuses on institutionalized learning. The Greek is more expansive. It is good to keep this mind, as Socrates is not making a critique about the school system. To Plato, the world is where we learn, from childhood to adulthood. Education is synonymous with living. Learning is growing, expanding, and cultivating every day of our life.

[3] The word for condition is πάθει, from which we get our word pathos, or pathetic. It means suffering, in the sense of experiencing things outside our control. The human condition, in this parable, is one of slavery and imprisonment.

[4] This light is the light from outside the cave. It is not the fire that is described below.

[5] The preposition παρὰ is ambiguous. It is used a lot in this passage. It can mean besides (parallelogram), passed over (paraleipsis), beyond (para-normal), outside (para-dox), against (para-sol). So, the idea is that the light enters the cave, but it is not “in” the cave. It is there, but not there. I translate παρὰ as ‘about’ or ‘around’, just to keep that sense of ambiguity.

[6] Socrates refers to the cave-like home as σπηλαιώδει. But here, he uses the word cave, σπήλαιον. Notice that he quickly substitutes a world indicating likeness, with a word indicating being. This is important: language conceals that we are referring to likenesses. Keep this in mind as you continue to read the passage.

[7] Like cave and cave-like, Socrates is equating fire with the light, as if they were same. In the cave, the people can feel the fire at their backs, and they can, as we shall see, see the fire-light behind the shadows.

[8] Socrates told Glaucon to liken our nature to the conditions describe. “I see” has replaced “I liken”, which is a replacement of likeness, with identity/being. ἄτοπον

[9] Glaucon has distanced himself (projected) from the likeness by calling them “strange”.  The word is ἄτοπον, from which we get our word topology. Literally, it means “no place”, and therefore “non-existent”.

[10]

[11] Glaucon and Socrates are now dialoguing with each other. This is, after all, a dialogue of Plato.

[12] The things are represented by the objects, and those carrying them. Remember, the prisoners only see and dialogue with the shadows projected on the wall of the cave.

[13] The word that I translate as ‘folly’, ἀφροσύνης, is impossible to translate in English. The word derives from the Greek word for heart, and it describes a folly that originates in the blindness of soul, connected to the heart space.

[14] Like when you turn the light on in the middle of the night, and it is painful to the eyes.

[15] All of a sudden, it seems that the one person who ascends towards the light, is actually not alone. This is a fascinating passage. “They” and what the “they” have been seeing is actually all humans everywhere. It’s just the not all see it as clearly as the one who is awakening. It is worth meditating on this passage, because the suggestion is that the beings, in their illusion and in their being are all emanations or creations of what Plato understands to be the realm of the Good or God.

[16] The awards are given to those who see, those who can remember, and those who can predict.  In other words, the awards are given to those who deeply believe in the false reality structure, a structure that defines past, present, and future. This is how the cave-puppeteers control the narrative and award those who are able to repeat and reinforce it. Plato is showing us how timelines can be used to entrap consciousness in ignorance if we believe the stories we are told about the shadows on the wall. Public honors and awards keep the show going.

[17] The philosopher always chooses to live in truth, rather than chase the rewards of receiving good public opinion. Living in alignment with light consciousness, in the light of God is its own rewards. This sentiment is also amply expressed in the New Testament.

[18] This is hypothetical because awakening is not something that someone does to something else. Awakening is truly the awakening of the soul in connection with the Source/God/The Good, which cannot be “killed”. This is why Socrates did not hold any fear at his deathbed. They cannot kill the seeker of truth, because it is an emanation of who we are, as divine emanations of Source.

Managing fear: The Dog, the Soul, and the Underworld

I posted “this” article last night. I was attempting to articulate fear. It was a rough article to write, I will be honest. It was very much like rummaging through the darkness, and with very little light. It makes sense, that darkness I experienced, because fear is what keeps things in the dark. So, when trying to look at it, I was confronted with a whole lot of resistance.  As a result, some of it didn’t coalesce very well together and, in the end, lacked the integrity I am used to feeling after writing.  So I removed it, and am re-forging it here. What an amazing insight to have, to see how wandering through the dark has great rewards if we persist.  Buried within the deepest places, are the greatest treasures. Don’t ever give up on anything that you feel you must seek. The darkness is a blessing. The darkness is where dreams are incubating, waiting to come to the surface. We are all born into the darkness for the light.

This article is no longer about fear. Instead, it is about what fear is hiding. Of course, I am not going to be specific about what fear is hiding – that would be impossible, as you can imagine.  However, we are, as a collective, hiding a lot of things, and these things are not personal in origin; although, they can become personal in manifestation, if that makes sense.  It is like this: God is one, and we are all one within God, but we are each manifestations, unique expressions of the divine in physical form.

Synthetic Ego Programming Model

I consider the ego to be a synthetic structure in the way we understand it today. In Plato’s day, there was no such thing as an ego. The synthetic ego very much like a tabular rasa or clean slate in its original condition. In simplistic terms, we enhance the ego as we grow, and we continue to cultivate whatever I believe “me” to be.  The people around us – also in their own ego, also do the same.  Society in general, is the collective ego as relationship and relating. The ego, by itself, couldn’t survive, without its connection, or plugging into the true self, which is the true “I AM”. However, the soul is, unlike the ego, infinite, and deathless, our true nature. The agenda of the ego-programmatic model is to eventually replace the soul entirely. This is has always been the aim of transhumanism and so-called science during the past few centuries.

But as it stands, the ego is still fueled by the soul energy, like a parasite in many ways. We all together have co-created the reality we witness, the buildings, the roads, the systems of government. We all together created it by doing nothing, or doing everything. The projections on the blank slate or canvas of ego are holographic or physical representations of others, of things, events circumstances. We focus consciousness on others, they appear in our life and/or dreams.  The night dreams take us deeper into other worlds, other possibilities, and deeper interactions with others, outside the limitations of the physical world. When we go into night dream, we are more able to encounter the things we hide on the surface (day dream) of our life.  We experience different aspects of our consciousness, the ones that are reaching to the surface for air, the ones that perhaps we are trying to hide just below that surface. Many people don’t remember their dreams. Many are repetitive or horrifying. Some seem meaningless. In today’s world, we are taught that dreams are “just dreams”, and are of not much value. This is completely contrary to antiquity, where dreams were messages sent from the divine through the spirit/soul.

Journey to the Underworld

Hercules approaches Cerberus, Guardian of the Underworld

But let’s go deeper. There is an area that is deeper than the day dream, and the night dreams where we interact. The deepest area is the underworld. The underworld is where the physical bodies cannot pass. In Greek mythology, Hades is this Underworld. Hades is the invisible realm – it is the place which is kept in the dark, as something invisible, and imperceptible to human beings. It is a place where the beings who live there have no physical bodies. If you travel there, you cannot remain there as a physical body, nor can you see with your physical senses. Only living heroes travel there. The founder of Athens, Theseus, once traveled there and was saved by Heracles. However his friend, Pirithous, who desired to physically mate with Persephone, wife of Hades, was left there forever, fixed to a rock. The lesson is that, if you travel to the underworld while still attached to the physical form/desires/wants, you will drag your soul down into oblivion. Instead of reaching the upper world, upper consciousness that is natural to the soul, it will be forever trapped in a physical prison – eternal life in hell. If you travel to the underworld, you cannot do so with your body and all of its attachments and needs. It will literally kill you. There are people who practice new age religions that do that. They attempt to leave their body in order to enter what they believe are higher dimensions. This is a very dangerous practice and will not end well. They carry their fear and their suffering with them, and so what they are doing is creating that fear ten-fold into the collective. I will leave that story for another article. There are beings and gods that do want to seduce people into doing this. The reasons are complex.

But, as a general rule, for those who are not dabbling in black arts disguised as new age spirituality, fear is a good thing that keeps us from the underworld before it is our time. Our time is either when we have reached a point of enlightenment or awareness, or when are body in this life is ready to die. Fear is the wild dog that guards specific portals that might lead us to gross the realms from the visible realm to the invisible. It is always a beautiful and sacred ceremony, and both are a form of death, whether in the form of mystery initiation, or funeral. Transitions, in human civilization, were always a time of honor an ceremony, not for our pleasure, but for the recognition that the passage from world to the next was a monumental achievement, like the labors of Hercules himself. The story of Hercules is the hero’s journey. Hercules was a mystic or seer. According to Diodorus Siculus, his twelve labors were his initiation into the Sacred Mysteries.  His journey would take him to the underworld and back again. His final task was to capture and return with Cerberus, the three headed dog, the fear of all fears. The gates or veils between the visible world and the invisible are collapsed.

The Soul Speak Through Nature

When we are in our physical consciousness, the day dream, we unable to see or perceive the reality of who we are. We think we are the body and the things attached to it, the needs, the work, the identity. But who we truly are is an eternal soul, as invisible as the underworld itself. The true self is not definable, but will, if not prevented by synthetic ego, express itself through all aspects of existence. This is why Shamans can retrieve messages, not only from the underworld, but from all God’s creations: animals, trees, insects, winds, the elements. Nature speaks in an invisible tongue, called light language, and it is an invisible language that cannot be written, but is transmitted through what is written, as an activation of sorts.  Ego, unfortunately, keeps us from hearing the light language – it only understands programming and programmatic concepts. It will only accept what it has already been programmed to “know”. The ego is actually already artificial intelligence!

But when we can dismantle or ignore the programming, we can begin to hear whispers. No longer do we feel cut off from the world, alone, or isolated, as if we were just particles of dust in the big bad universe. No, you start to experience your soul as permeating all things, as speaking through all things, because of its connection to all things. You are speaking through the dream, in the form of a tree, in the form of a blade of grass, in the form of lion, or a dragon. This is the essence of the spiritual companions that walk with you in these dreams. When you are in ego, you don’t notice. When you emerge, you witness your companions who have always walked with you, have always whispered to you, have always loved you.

When Can I See the Underworld?

So, when are ready to pass into the underworld? When is the awakening going to happen? It happens when you are ready. That is when it happens. You will know when that happens, because you will be guided as if you were blind, blind not because you cannot see with the eyes, but because you know that the eyes cannot guide you where you are going.  Consider this passage in Plato’s Phaedo:

So then would he be the one [the philosopher] could do this with the most purity , the one who could traverse each being through thought, employing no aspect of physical vision in that thought, nor dragging in any other kind of perception with the thinking, but by using pure thought unmixed and in itself, would attempt to hunt each of the beings as each is purely in itself, completely dissociated from the eyes and the ears and, so to speak, the entire body, since the body, whenever it tags along, only stirs up trouble and prevents the soul from possessing both truth and meditation whenever it communicates with it? Isn’t this the one [ the philosopher], Simmias, if there could be anyone else, who would be able to have a shot at being?

“It is extraordinary,” said Simmias, “how true this is, Socrates!” – Plato, Phaedo, 65b.


The physical form, and all attachments to it, prevent us from clear observation. In the dialogue, this observation is called phronesis, which is heart-based perception, or intuition.  It is not really possible to translate this word into English.  English identifies all things as being inside the thought and thinking. Just imagine a word for thinking, but instead of the mind, it applies to the heart-space, the soul-space. It is the work of the soul to see with phronesis. It is the source of wisdom, and so it is the activity that the philosopher, the lover of wisdom, seeks. This is why, in Sophocles Oedipus, Oedipus cannot see the truth until his eyes are removed. This is also why, no teacher or guru or anyone can make you see the truth about who you are, inside the invisible realm. They can only guide you in ways that work, and methods that are given to them for the sake of your guidance. There is no right way. There is no way that works for everyone. All roads lead back to your soul, but the roads of others will only lead to others.

The Principle of Mentalism

Hollywood has taken over the storytelling of humanity. Instead of the seers and prophets, and ancient oral traditions of antiquity and indigenous cultures, we have mass media and copies of mass media in all its forms.  Today, in the day dream, we believe the underworld is a fairy tale at worst, or some kind of metaphor at best. The truth is neither. The underworld is here and now, and its expression has been suppressed. Why? There has been a deliberate desire to keep you afraid of the invisible unseen realm. Our education attempts to conceal or shut all portals leading to your soul. The forms of entertainment want to entertain, which is to contain you. All modern entertainment is a form of physical entrapment in the day dream or night dreams that they wish. They do not want people taking the hero’s journey, and they do not encourage it. That is why all teachings and guidance has been buried and destroyed.  Death is considered a useless evil. The invisible non-existent. Your thoughts should agree with the society’s thoughts, and you should get your information from the media. The last thing they want is for you to understand that your thoughts are tools that create the world we live in. If you knew that, you would learn how to use the tool called mind. Instead, they want to use you as a way to create the world they want to create, and condone the things that they want to do.   This is why mass propaganda is so important. It is not only to control you. It is actually to use to create their world. This is very important to understand, because many people believe the lie that the elites or the cult want to control you. They do, but that is not the goal. What they want is to to use the power of your thoughts, because thought creates reality. In the underworld, when you are able to navigate the invisible world of thought, you can use this to create and direct the results in your life.  But, they don’t want you there, and want to use mind affect a certain result in their interests. When you watch violence, sex, and corruption on television, you are continuing to support that reality, simply by thinking it. Consumers of media become tools of this dark magic.

This idea, that the world is created from mind/thought, is the first of seven principles in the Kybalion. It reads:

This Principle embodies the truth that “All is Mind.” It explains that The All (which is the Substantial Reality underlying all the outward manifestations and appearances which we know under the terms of “The Material Universe”; the “Phenomena of Life”; “Matter”; “Energy”; and, in short, all that is apparent to our material senses) is Spirit, which in itself is Unknowable and Undefinable, but which may be considered and thought of as An Universal, Infinite, Living Mind. It also explains that all the phenomenal world or universe is simply a Mental Creation of The All, subject to the Laws of Created Things, and that the universe, as a whole, and in its parts or units, has its existence in the Mind of The All, in which Mind we “live and move and have our being.” This Principle, by establishing the Mental Nature of the Universe, easily explains all of the varied mental and psychic phenomena that occupy such a large portion of the public attention, and which, without such explanation, are non‑understandable and defy scientific treatment. An understanding of this great Hermetic Principle of Mentalism enables the individual to readily grasp the laws of the Mental Universe, and to apply the same to his well‑being and advancement. The Hermetic Student is enabled to apply intelligently the great Mental Laws, instead of using them in a haphazard manner. With the Master‑Key in his possession, the student may unlock the many doors of the mental and psychic temple of knowledge, and enter the same freely and intelligently. This Principle explains the true nature of “Energy,” “Power,” and “Matter,” and why and how all these are subordinate to the Mastery of Mind. One of the old Hermetic Masters wrote, long ages ago: “He who grasps the truth of the Mental Nature of the Universe is well advanced on The Path to Mastery.” And these words are as true to‑day as at the time they were first The Seven Hermetic Principles 11 written. Without this Master‑Key, Mastery is impossible, and the student knocks in vain at the many doors of The Temple. – The Kybalion

 The Synthetic Fear

There are two kinds of fears. One kind of fear is natural. It is the kind of fear that is appropriate when a lion is chasing you, or when someone is trying to harm you.  Natural fear goes away, once the threat is no longer present. It is always temporary – and is usually a response that is prompting you to quickly act to get away from the threat.  These little fears are pretty rare, and they occur to protect our physical body from danger.  This kind of fear is always fear for physical harm. The body needs this kind of fear to protect itself since, after all, it is a relatively fragile thing in the face of dangers like lions and bears.

Synthetic fear however, the fear designed to – artificially – keep you from your journey into the underworld, which would allow you to achieve the mastery of mind. Synthetic fear is the dog that stands in the way to prevent you from true awakening, growth and expansion. As I said previously, there is a natural true dog, meant to keep you safe until you are ready. This is not that dog. This is a synthetic version of the dog used to manipulate humanity by not allowing them to practice the magic of thought, The strange thing about this synthetic fear is that it takes the energy of physical fear and transmutes into a mental state that persists and blocks all other possible thoughts. So, instead of your fear just erupting as needed in the physical world, it is being manipulated into the mind consciousness and programmed there as a persistent state.  Most human beings on the planet are kept in this constant state of low-grade fear. When needed, they can project that fear on the ego tabula rasa, and the fear energy which is a physical energy, can be consumed by the programmatic engine they wish to run. It is one of the primary causes of disease and disfunction on all levels, because when human beings are in a constant state of exaggerated fear, it takes a toll on their biological system. Some people would call this fear stress, or anxiety. It can show up in the form of depression, and obsessive-compulsive behavior as well.  In the end it is just a reformulation of fear, a redirecting of the physical energy into psychic form.

 Once people are in a state of low-grade fear, they are always on the lookout for something bad to happen. It is like they are constantly looking for that lion to appear every moment, because their biology is telling them that there is in fact a danger there. This mental state, that is highly manipulated, has people expect bad things to happen, and when the media delivers these bad things – which it does all day long – the mind is given its target. At that point, most remain still, frozen in fear, ready to do whatever they are told, or they take action either through violence, by means of words or deeds. They have also been trained to enjoy fear while watching shows like Games of Thrones. The entire mental life becomes saturated with violent images of sex, rape, and war.

As you can see, there is no possible mastery of mind in this state. In fact, many so called new age religions and spiritual pursuits will recommend that you remove your mind altogether. They will instead direct you to go to your heart. This teaching will never lead you into your power, and your soul. It does the opposite. The mind is for you to master, not abandon.

Moving Past Fear Programs

In Book II of the Republic of Plato, Socrates says that the best guardian of the imaginary best city is like a dog. Socrates of course was being a bit witty here. He was suggesting the dog we all know as Cerberus. The dog is the guardian, and knows what is good and bad based on his knowledge of good and bad. And, so, like any good dog, it keeps those who belong inside, and those who do not, outside. But remember, Cerberus is the divider between the worlds. He is the physical manifestation of fear. When you are programmed as the dog, as the fear-based being that they want you to be, you are always judging everything as good or bad as if those judgements are the result of scientific proof. It feels right, because it feels safe to do so. But there is no deep understanding of why those things are bad or good, except the understanding that has been implanted in the mind. There is no wisdom in programs or artificial intelligence. That is a great way to identify thoughts that are not born from within the soul – they simply have no roots, just like a fake plant has no roots. What need have they of roots?

Fear programming is tough, persistent, and resistant, like hard plastic. It is difficult to work with, if you are trying to communicate with the soul that is hidden behind it. Synthetic fear is always irrational. You cannot talk with it, convince it otherwise, or help it to shift out of itself.  The only way to move it is to distract it with pleasure. If you can do that, you can recover a part of yourself. When Dante and Virgil meet Cerberus in hell, Virgil had to feed it in order to be able to walk past it. This is why it is a waste of time to argue with anyone who is running on fear, whether that is in some social media group, or a physical meeting. There is just no persuading of programs and people running on fear programs.

“When Cerberus, that great worm, had seen us
His mouth he opened and his fangs were shown,
And then my leader with his folded palms
Took of the earth, and filling full his hand,
Into those hungry gullets flung it down.” – Inferno, Canto vi., 13 ff.

So with yourself, when you detect fear programs and want to remove them, you need to give them a bone, so to speak. You can, in fact, remove them completely, but first you want to at least move past them. When you move past them, you enter a portal to another world, and you will experience this as higher consciousness, as expansion, because what you have done is removed something that was in your way, like a gate or a giant rock. If you want to remove it permanently, you just tell the dog to go away! It will go, but you have to know that it will go. Remember, your thoughts are powerful in the realm of the underworld, and what you truly deeply believe will come to pass. If you do not have the conviction, the dog will stay. If you return into the fear program, it will continue to run, and you will have to walk through it again.

It is very important, in this world, in this life, to write down your dreams as best you can. What you are shown, even if it is an artificial programming, will give you insight into what programs you are running, how your energy is being siphoned, and what gifts they don’t want you to express. All of your gifts come from your soul, and phronesis is required into order to work with it. When you master the mental space, by clearing out the programming, you can make room for soul energy to communicate with you. This is the work I do, as I walk through the underworld, the invisible realm, and even as I type this I am walking, hoping that my words whisper even a little bit of truth from the places where no one can see, but where the whole world breathes.

The Dark Magic of Modern Language

Language exists on a spectrum, just like light or sound. On one side of the spectrum, we have the light, and on the other, we have the dark. Regardless, the idea of language as a spectrum is very foreign to the way we use language today, in the 21st century. We mostly think of  language as something we use in order to label the world we see: the desk, the chair, this person, that person, me. On another level, we look at language as something that transmits data or information from one person or another. In that sense, we use language to describe the relationship between things or beings, what we think they are, what happens to them, and how to use them. In other words, we use language to tell stories and create instruction manuals, clarify causes, hypotheses, and articulate purpose. Language allows us to transmit our world-view, no matter the scope.

Because language allows us to understand, through stories, the world around us, it gives us the feeling of being able to master that world. At that point, we want to communicate this world-in-speech to others, maybe to help them, teach them, or even change them. It is important to realize that whenever we speak to another we are doing so with an intention.   The intention is generally some sort of manipulation through information.  The word information comes from the Latin, and literally means to place a form into (in-forma). When you speak, you shape the world around you in the eyes of others. So, you will see books on “how to do this” or “how to be that”, “how to get this”, or “why you can’t get that”. The internet has made this kind of information easy to get. Most people will google their question in order to find the answer. They are looking to be informed. The first place they search are the major media hubs or outlets. To most people, the bigger the media hub or news source, the more real and true it seems. This is what passes for “science” these days. The truth is that isn’t science at all. It is more like – magic.

In today’s world of online media and virtual communications, people broadcast their information on social media. Information is something that informs, and attempts to change the external world – in this case some part of public opinion – into its point of view. Society, which is controlled by an elitist cult, has attempted to control this information through the major media outlets, and through organizations funded by them that promote the ideas that the cult wants as information.  Information, and so language, then becomes a weapon for control, or more specifically, mass mind control. When it comes to information, society, run by a cult, doesn’t want the free flow of information. The reason for this is that it is hiding something from plain site, and in order to keep hiding, it needs to keep its cover intact.

The manipulation of a massive number minds requires something that goes beyond simple information. Cults, like all other cults before it, use dark spells or magic in the traditional sense. Dark spells are incantations (Latin for ‘placing song/spell into’) that are designed to take hold of the victim and consume a certain aspect of their consciousness. It is clearly the case, that the cult has been able, through dark magic/spells posing as News and Entertainment, to inflict mind control on the world population, and on a scale that has never been seen before. Not only has this pushed people into a state of embodiment through imitation (imitating and emulating celebrities, popular points of view, popular music and fashion styles, attitudes about medicine, and politics, etc.), it has pushed them further and further away from being able to master the energetic nature of the language spectrum. In other words, it is getting more and more difficult for people to engage in constructive dialogue and conversation.

There is a reason why ADD and ADHD has been such a common, almost ubiquitous diagnoses these days. It is because we have gotten to the point where most people can only manage to read the headlines of articles, or the “tweet” about the articles, or just the image.  For example, when I post my articles, the ones with the images get the most attention. If I don’t post an image, no one looks. The entire goal of the cult is to reduce the mental capacity of most human beings to the point where they can barely construct a sentence. What this does is not only deprives them of the ability to work through complex thoughts, or express complex experiences, but it severely decreases their capacity to negotiate with their own physical body in an internal sense. It gets to the point, where the body – all its pains and distractions – becomes too much for them to handle. This creates an almost infantile relationship with their own life, and cements the co-dependent relationship on society, mass media, and the black magic that poses as information and entertainment.

When we are in our natural state, and in a healthy mode of inner and outer communication, we are able to thrive.  To understand this, consider your physical body. Your entire body, all the organs, the blood, and all the cells that make up the organs and the blood communicate with each other on some level.   All day long, your body is moving as a whole, and it is able to do this because the communication mechanisms are the body are sound. When, however, we are not in good health, it indicates that there is some kind of breakdown or block in communication.  The communication your body uses is not English or Chinese or Spanish. It is an energetic communication that is more similar to the way a plant responds to light, or how a dog knows that its owner will have a seizure, or how birds know where to place themselves in formation during flight. We, as human beings, participate in this beautiful and natural flow of communication. The language that reflects that flow and dialogue between us what some people call “light language”. One could also call it energetic language as well. You cannot speak light language using human language, but you can use language in a way that transmits it with the intention of sending energetic communication. Music, by itself, sends this kind of energy. Language can do this as well. However, most people have forgotten how to read language in that way, and most of the lighter languages, such has Ancient Greek and Sanskrit, are called – ironically – dead languages. They are no longer taught in public primary schools.

Light language is the language of energy, and it is the language of our soul. It is light because it is the consciousness and awareness that is reflected back on the soul level.  The languages we speak and use on a daily basis are darker/shadow languages through which the light language, that is, your soul, can speak. However, the darker the language, the less present the light can shine through. The best way to see this is to consider teachings of wisdom such as Jesus, the Yoga Sutras, or Plato. When you read them, you don’t gain information. Instead, what you gain is awareness. Even if you can glean some information from them, that is not the goal of the writing. The goal of the writing is to express the soul energy, which is the expression of who we truly are on a soul level. At that level, the light language can illuminate all other languages in such a way that you can see the connections between completely unrelated things.  There is a facility and shift that happens in your consciousness when you read light language. When you experience it, your consciousness shifts not to another object, but into something like a completely different dimension of space and time. Eventually, you realize that you are completely outside time. When that happens, all things become possible timelines and spaces inside an infinite universe. You see how the infinite meets with the finite, how the body is linked to the eternal soul, and how all things and beings are truly one, not on a conceptual level, but experientially.

Below is a quote by Norman Maclean, from his book, A River Runs Through It. It’s a good example of English used to transmit light language. On the surface, the sentiment seems poetic and – to some – not clear. The beauty of this is that it is nearly incomprehensible to the mind that tries to analyze it. Yet, to the soul, the energy is crystal clear, as clear as the water itself:

But due to the cult, the mass media, in line with the public education system, human beings are experiencing an unprecedented amount of communication blocks both internally at the individual level, and externally on a social and planetary level. Many cannot read actual poetry without making a mental reconstruction (a.k.a. literal) of it.  Even the Bible, has become to some, a source of truth, instead of a source of wisdom. Most people have become so “informed” or, as I see it, “spell bound”, that they cannot even account for the ideas that inform them. Very few can sit down calmly, and walk you through the origin and reasoning behind the conclusions they have acquired on Twitter or Google or friends and family. Instead, because they cannot account for the information in their head, they become combative and accusatory, claiming that their opponent is ignorant or hateful. This state of “being informed” and information is the state of the food supply. Most cannot grow their own food. Even more cannot grow their own ideas. Yet, they will, if pushed to it, kill for their food and their ideas. There is a reason why repetition, not fresh and new innovation, permeates the popular arts, and why people seem content with holding opinions and attitudes that they acquired from outside sources. Truth, at that point, is demonstrated only by agreement and sameness. As a result of all this, people have literally become hijacked, a.k.a. possessed by external powers, and so are essentially uniformed weaponized bodies containing all sorts of undifferentiated and toxic ideas and slogans. This state of things results in a devastating sense of one’s own victimization (and so slavery), which raises its ugly head in the continuation and proliferation of wars, hate, censorship, and intolerance. In this situation, the ones calling for tolerance, are usually completely intolerant. The ones censoring are those who don’t want to be censored.  The ones who hate and wage war, are the ones accusing the other side of hate and war. The war of language, the war between the conservatives and the democrats, the war between the lovers of Trump and haters of Trump, is facilitated by the dark tongue we now call English, a language that has strayed so far away from its Germanic and Indo-European roots, that it can barely say anything without spewing at least a little venom one way or the other.  There isn’t a literary symbol left, I don’t believe, that hasn’t been tainted by this, because the occult magic is designed to create polarity in every single thing on the planet, including the souls of all the individuals on it. This polarity has inflicted enormous psychological, spiritual, and emotional damage and literally has many young people eating away at themselves, as well as the world that seems utterly confusing and chaotic at every given moment.

The best way to stop this madness is to begin on a personal level and work with others on an individual basis. Get back to what is real, like the tree. Notice that the tree doesn’t polarize itself about growing today. It doesn’t argue whether it is too cold outside, or too hot. What the tree does, is continue to do tree things, as shown in the picture to the right.  What are the things that we humans are to do? What are human things? Well, the first step is to remove what isn’t human at all, what is artificial, divisive, and causing problems in our ability to naturally grow, both in body and soul. Today, we are living in what is no different from the situation as described in Plato’s cave, and it is going to take everything we have, all our consciousness, and all our love and compassion that we can muster, to help guide ourselves back to basics. Every individual is different, but the simple act of unplugging for the matrix-media-entertainment cult is a good first step. Spend time with yourself, not with the things that fill your head with more information. Draw, write, pain, spend time with nature. Spend time getting honest with yourself about your true desires and what truly makes you happy and happy to be with others. Read books that expand your awareness and help you find your own wisdom. Speak with care and intention, especially to yourself. Write down your dreams. Listen to them. Listen to others. Give them your ear. Learn about your fears. It is okay. Learn about your anger. It is okay. Learn about what has kept you from the life you want. It is okay. Learn to listen to yourself, open communication with yourself as you would with a loved one. That is how you love yourself. Listen, exchange ideas with yourself, be supportive, encouraging, and find help outside yourself from those who have your best interest in mind. Look for those who want to help you grow through interaction and dialogue, not those who want to control or cut you down. Let go of the old leaves and don’t be impatient for the new ones. Look for love: you need that to breathe. Like the trees, like the air we breathe, the light language, the true language of love, is all around you. It will fill you with fearlessness and freedom, a dialogue that will not only move your mind, but your body and soul. Light language is the language that sings. It is the only language, because it’s nature’s language.
