Scientists have now discovered that the heart sends approx 100 times more messages to the brain than the reverse, and thus it is the heart that is the primary driving mechanism of what we call conscious thought.
Furthermore, that based on thirty years of clinical trials, and electrical signal measurements, the heart has the capacity to perceive events in a person’s future three to five seconds before the event occurs. Ever have that happen? We dismiss it NOW, because we’ve been wrongly taught to. But science is speeding along faster than most people realize, coming closer to agreeing with many of the basic tenets of ancient spiritual traditions than most so-called, scientifically minded people, yet understand.
One day the atheists/humanists/logical pragmatists of the world are going to wake up and discover that science doesn’t agree with them, and that it is they who now live in the dark ages, not because they subscribe to (what they categorize as) supernatural spiritual fluff, but because they don’t yet recognize that it was never fluff to begin with. It just took science a while to catch up to what others “knew” all along. To really get your mind blown check out the theory of Quantum Entanglment next time you find yourself wondering if or doubting that ESP, psychicism, telekinesis and the like exist. It’s in the science now. No longer theoretical. And no longer is “faith” needed. Just more understanding of the mechanisms behind these heretofore mysteries and phenomena. Getting there faster than I’d see in my lifetime. Exciting stuff.
Watched the doc ZEITGEIST. See it as soon as you can. Netflix it or watch it online. We’re at a place now where these kinds of “wake up and see whats happening” conspiracy documentaries no longer offer any new information for me. Just different retellings of the usual data. The Jesus story was plagiarized from the Egyptian Horace myth and the Persian Mithra legend, 9/11 was an inside job,
At this point we need to DO more than merely watch these films. The same goes for making them. We’ve got enough of them now, what with I AM and THRIVE and all of David Icke’s works.
I’m starting to realize something. Getting something. Slowly appearing. Popping it’s head in and out of my awareness …. One of those major ones. Where what you think you know and say you know becones experientially clearer to you theough real world events in real time in your life and you suddenly realize that though you may have repeated it a thousand times in your life as a truism, you never really got the full magnitude of it until right now in this very minute. One of those. Multi layered and impactful on a multitude of layers… What is it? Slowly… Dont lose it. Ok.. We are where we are because of who we are what we do and what we believe ie where we expect to be. In each moment. We already know this. At least we think we do. But it foes deeper. The oart about we are where we are because of where we subconsciously (so to speak) believe we should be. There’s a master blue print we are following that has it’s foundation, that is composed of better put, of the thousand or tens of thousands of beliefs that we carry around with us, especially the ones pertaining to who we are how we show up where we are and where we are going… But the key is that sometimes we aren’t necessarily where we truly believe we believe we should be.. There is an incongruence sometimes –as if our fate is being controlled by chance or fate or some other mysterious force that we aren’t fully in control of or even aware of…. We know that too. The phenomenon. It happens to us all at one point or another in our lives.
But what if the key was to tackle the things we most fear or resist…? If there were an invisible door that when opened led to a place that looked exactly like where we’ve always wanted to be and where we always knew we were suppose to be, what if all that stood between us and walking thru that door were a few keys? Or one key? The key that unloks that door appears to be deliberately doing the things that we intuitively know we should be doing but consciously feel major resistance to or fear of. THISE things.
And deeper. What if once done they turned out to be not half as horrible or scary or chakengin or difficult as we imagined them to be? And more importantly once done they magically transform our life in a way that in the moment we could hardly even fathom. Making the doing of it …
Of course his “Holiness” didn’t actually say “fuck it” — he said “forget” in an accent that the audience perhaps deliberately misunderstood in this era where the majority of humanity has now evolved out of our once primitive need to defend the rightness of any one race or religion. People in general on a global scale have become more than tired of the small factions left around the world who are still making the rest of our lives’ hell on earth due to their righteous refusal to allow that we are all equal regardless of our religious beliefs. The Dalai Lama himself may have not said “fuck it”, but one perceives that humanity itself is clearly at that point.
The most telling aspect of this video of course – despite the pedestrian obsession with the “egads!” possibility of the Dalai Lama saying “fuck it” – is actually the fact that after decades of taking it in the rear, and thus encouraging/obligating his people to do the same, from the Chinese – who have now all but wiped out the Tibetan culture on earth, the robed one looks as though he is finally willing to speak up to the murderous barbarism that is modern day China as it relates to Tibet and other smaller countries around the world. Good on him.
News reports are flying in from all over the United States that Apple Computer has instituted a new “rule” in its fine print that does not allow its employees to sell its products to people from a variety of different countries — even if they are American citizens. Some of the countries include Iran, Cuba, Iraq, and of course North Korea. Even if you are an American born and bred, but just happen to speak a language other than English as your native or second language that Apple deems “threatening” (is there such a thing?), they have the right to decline selling products to you. Best not to walk into an Apple retailer speaking Spanish. They might think you’re Cuban God forbid.
The Transcendence Diaries have covered a lot of territory over the last ten years. Fishy has seen and heard just about anything, everything and more than a human should be allowed in one blessed lifetime. But this is one of the most shocking things I have heard to date. From a simple civil liberties and human rights perspective it is an abominable discovery. It is an outlandish rule that Apple has imposed. Unfairly discriminatory unnecessary and unwarranted.
Apple Computer once stood for something. Something very special. One still gets teary eyed recalling images of the two Steves in their parent’s garage building their new machines. At times we may even blush with pride at the thought of the once renegade Steve Jobs trying to buck the system to uphold his own uniquely admirable brand of integrity, honor and aesthetics. Getting fired from his position as CEO from his own company for doing so. But those days have long since passed. The company that was once known for being independent, somewhat hip cool and rogue has slowly grown into the typical greedy faceless corporate behemoth; bought in, sold out pandering kiss ups.
Where the ever admirable Google — who’s corporate slogan is the noble “do no evil” — tries to help people in foreign countries battling strict controlling governments or even lend a hand to a people’s revolution or two, Apple is more interested in strictly profits and won’t sell an iPhone to American citizens if they don’t happen to approve of their native language. Just flat out discrimination.
Occasionally we encounter resistance from others when we profess to not believe what they believe. Especially regarding religious, spiritual, metaphysical, philosophical or even psychological matters. Those who possess certain religious beliefs not only have the usual sorts of inherent needs to feel “right” in believing what they do, but actually have it built into their belief systems that they’re obligated to help others convert to their belief systems In order to save their very soul. The problem is that we don’t even know if there is such a thing as a soul. In fact in philosophy the matter is considered one of the unsolvable arguments of the field that all students must at least once defend one side or the other either orally or in a paper. If forced to prove the existence of a soul as material evidence in a court of law in an important case of life or death no one would be able to do it. No judge or court would buy it. It would be a useless effort. No ones ever seen one. And we’ve never seen or heard of any proof of anything even close to something like it. And yet billions of people on earth for thousands of years claim to believe that human beings “have souls”. I reckon this has more to do with humanity’s deep seated resistance to mortality than it does to any sort of rational thought or evidence or even logic. After all, contemplating the death of ourselves is tough. It stings. It is so counter intuitive to and hurts our ego’s built in survival
Instincts so much that it’s damn close to being unimaginable. Us being here ine minite wirh all of our thoufhts and feelings and memories and in the next not existing at all ever again. And yet all known evidence and knowledge collected thus far in our evolutionary journey as a species here in earth clearly points to the idea of a soul being not much more than a very nice and comforting idea but rather implausible.
Of course this is just one example out of hundreds, thousands maybe, of the types of things we read about and hear about once we venture into studying these subjects of religion and spirituality and psychology and the like. Metaphysics is filled with them. Even psychology , as allegedly scientific as it it’s taken to be is filled with conjectured theories that are entirely unprovable. Ideas like the ego or the id or the subconscious aren’t really anything more than man made ideas created to try to help explain matters more complex than our current knowledge base allows us to really understand very well.
After over 25 years of studying and researching these subjects I don’t have much patience for people who profess to know things that are unprovable. If there’s one thing we do know it’s that we don’t know much. I’ve always found that to be the most intelligent and therefore safest and even comforting foundation from which to approach the contemplation of life’s greatest mysteries. I have a deeply profound respect for other peoples’ right to believe whatever they want to. And therefore I don’t desire in any way to convince them that anything I believe is something they should. I like most the kind of people who also tend towards this attitude when it comes to permitting that we are all entitled to believe what we want to as long as it doesn’t infringe on the safety or welfare of others. They seem to be the smartest among us. And as seemingly contradictory as it may be, some of these same people sometimes happen to believe the most outlandish and unprovable ideas of their own in the realm of religion or spirituality. And yet they are smart enough to recognize that they may be wrong or that it doesn’t matter whatsoever if someone else believes what they do or not, and brave enough to allow even that there are people out there who think they’re plumb crazy for believing what they do. again it comes down to the “can it be proved in a court of law enough so that it can be used as material evidence” idea. A smart person recognizes this tricky dichotomy, this phenomenon of contradiction in the human psyche.
One of the fastest ways to get to real truth, real knowledge, is to start recognizing that there just isn’t much of it floating around. We look and feel solid and material for example; in fact the whole damn world does. And yet we are also led to believe that we and everything else around us is composed of atoms that are 99.9% space. Empty space. Not very solid nor material. Now obviously there is something very wrong with this picture. Theoretically it may proof out on, at least on paper, but try walking through a brick wall knowing that both you and that brick wall are almost 100% empty space. It shouldn’t be too difficult. And yet let’s face it. It’s damn impossible. So as far as we’ve come in our evolutionary quest for knowledge and to understand, there’s still plenty that just doesn’t add up. And this is just one of them.
The truth is that we just don’t really know much of what the truth is. That’s about the closest thing to truth any of us can utter. As disarming and disillusioning as this realization can be, especially when first realizing it and further starting to apply it to ones personal beliefs about who they are and their spirituality, it can actually be a very liberating revelation. If one starts there, and stays there, as a foundation, rather than filling their head with a bunch of untruths and/or manmade theories without material proof, there can be found an exhilarating power when we do occasionally discover something that seems to ring true. Gravity for instance certainly exists. Although there is plenty about it that we still don’t understand, one thing we can rely on is that the force of gravity exists in varying degrees all over the known universe. Theres comfort in knowing this to be true. It’s such a rare thing to find something truly true about life in our universe that when we do we get a real sense of satisfaction. A confidence about life. And about who we are. Most of our day to day life is still mystery. From who we are to where we came from to why we are in the first place…. This is probably why we’ve created so many myths and legend and theories about so many things. An attempt to fill all these voids. The problem though is that we’ve created so many damn myths and legends and theories that are unfounded and unprovable, over so many thousands of years, and each of them by so many different groups of us through our history, that our collective consciousness is primarily filled with untruths. Many of them in stark contrast to or contradicting others. This has created innumerable problems for us as a species throughout our history. Not only do all these contradictory belief systems about everything confuse us, they keep us further and further from real truth the more of them we take on. And worse yet they create a power struggle not only within our psyches and our collective consciousness as a species but in our physical world as well. As each group possessing one set of beliefs tries to assert the rightness of said beliefs over another group who possesses an opposing or even just a different set of beliefs. It could be a genetically ingrained aspect of our basic survival instincts, or it might just be an elemental byproduct of our ego’s irrational need to be right that creates this passionate lust to believe that what we believe, as compared to what someone else does, is right or truth. Who knows? Thats the funny thing. We don’t even know why we have such a string need to believe what we believe is true compared to what someone else does. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. And yet plenty of people are willing to fight over it argue about it or even kill themselves and others over it. All just to defend the idea that what they believe is true. Try telling someone that they’ve got no soul and see how they react. It’s one in ten million who might agree with you that in the bigger picture they know they have no idea whether or not they’ve got a soul or not. it’s uncommon to find a man who is willing to admit that they don’t really know if anything they’ve tinkered with believing over the years is even remotely true or not or if it’s just fantasy or wishful thinking.
Yet perhaps the most astounding thing of the whole paradigm Is that truth itself is constantly changing. For millions of years gravity didn’t even exist as far as human beings were concerned. We hadn’t discovered it yet. Hadn’t studied it or given it a name or applied principles to it. And since that time we’ve changed what’s “true” about gravity countless times. In the future we will continue to do so. Just about everything human beings claim to know, anything and everything in the known universe, has gone through radical changes in how we think about it or what we claim to be true or not true about it.
Because of this, I tend to shy away from buying into much in the way of theories and ideologies. I confess I’m more than addicted to learning and studying and research. Probably to a fault. But I’ve never found I’ve been very good at believing much of anything. I find it all interesting. Some of it downright fascinating. But I take it all with a grain of salt. Even the basics. The things in specialized fields we take for granted, such as “I” and “I am” and “I am here” being the “only things we can know for certain” I don’t necessarily believe I’m certain about. Even these, as elementary foundational as they may seem to us now, tend to make me question just how long it will be before we don’t even believe them anymore. After all, they’re made up words. Existing for no other reason than the obligation of necessity at best. And we aren’t entirely sure who the “I” is, nor IF the “I” is. And we certainly don’t know if “I” is “here” or if there even is a “here”. There may be several “heres”. Or hundreds. Or none. Who knows? And again, that’s the truth of it. We don’t.
Still trying to understand this mysterious psychic ability I discovered possessing since I was a child. For the last few years I’ve been referring to it as just advanced intuition. Or an evolved or heightened ability to tap into the intuitive mode of consciousness. Rather than calling it esp or psychic ability. When discussing it i usually make the mistake of saying something like “this voice then said…” referring to these voices in my head that i hear. Which can get you into trouble. The truth of it though is that i don’t usially hear an actual voice, not like an audible voice like we hear with our ears for instance. Its more like thoughts that i hear. Sentenced. Ideas. Sometimes just a yes or a no. But usually more like a whole sentence or a few of them. Basically ideas, or messages.
The simplest way of describing it is to say i hear things in my head — or sometimes just get a knowing without words at all (that’s even harder to explain…) that speak about something that is going to happen in the future. Or something in the present that is happening but is not being revealed in the material world. Or something that has happened in the past that I would have no way of knowing. Sometimes it’s a strong voice. As in it’s message is loud and clear. With words and everything. I can often ask questions of it to gain mor clarity or understanding of what it’s talking about or just to confirm that what Ive translated as hearing is correct. And most of the time it answers back. Other times it’s more subtle. Like just a message without words. It’s a clear message, such as “the thought you had was correct. Go down that path. Do it fast. Do not forget…” something like that. A valid message but not with words as much as just a thought or feeling. It’s happened to me thousands of times now. And I can usually count on it happening at least a few times per day. The only problem is that I cannot as of yet control when it happens and when it doesn’t. It just seems to be on auto-pilot. It comes and goes on its own accord.
Since I’ve written about this here before, or st least in other places, the purpose of this post is not to explain it an all of the different aspects of it or instances of it. But more just to make note that I’ve just recently discovered a new phenomenon in quantum theory that physicists have discovered. They call it Quantum Entanglement.
Quantum Entanglement. The ability for two atomic particles to be connected thru a force still unknown and once connected — even if by hundreds of light years away from each other they do the exact same thing.
Heart Math is also helping to explain the heretofore so called “phenomenon”. Through electrodes in live cultures (like bacteria) or live human beings and other animals they are showing through electric meter readings that simply being in close proximity to another life form (like the aforementioned examples) a person’s feelings have a direct effect on that life form. …. …. It’s fascinating clinical data that proves that life of any kind has the ability to both transmit and receive emotional signals and to be affected by them. It is as if as one scientist commented that all of us, all life forms in fact, are both a satellite transmitor AND a television reciever, sending and receiving emotional signals from ourselves and to others, signlas that can now be picked up by, monitored and measured through using electricity.
This sheds much light on what we have been labeling as “supernatural or paranormal” for thousands of years. My prediction is that with these new scientific studies it will not be long before we take our own innate psychic abilities for granted, as fact and not science fiction or religious hokey pokey, just as we now do with our understanding of other previously considered “magical” aspects of reality such as electricity.
Sometimes we just NEED God. It isn’t so much a question of whether there is one or not. Nor how much evidence or proof we can collect for or against in order to convince our rational mind of such a thing. Nor how we were raised. Or what we even believe. Life can be tricky. Unpredictable. Sometimes we are thrown curve balls. It’s an exercise in the unexpected. Even when we think we’ve got it made something can come out of left field and blindside us. Humankind invented the idea of Gods and Goddesses out of a profound need. A desperate need. A need for order, security, safety, guidance, assurance. The best Gods provide a sense of order and predictability to an entirely chaotic and unpredictable world.
A few weeks ago a friend of ours from high school passed away from a random case of cancer that he had battled for over a year. Out of the blue. He was too young to get cancer and too young to die. Not even 40 yet. It was a random act of brutal unfairness. A perfect example of quantum chaos theory at play. Not predicted, unexpected, irrational, unfair, heartless, unjustified. A similar thing happened to Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys last month. This friend of ours had become religious over the last ten years we discovered. I saw him speak in public just weeks before his death. One can only imagine the roller coaster of thoughts and emotions the heart and mind rides when confronting such a journey. No choice. No power. No rules. Just nature taking its course on a whim.
“the key to the gun debate is to get rid of all liberals.” – Marion Hammer, first female president of the NRA
“The key to real evolution of freedom and liberty for all humankind is to get rid of the illusion of political parties and labels.”
When I read the first half of the quote above I thought for a moment that I might be about to read a helpful idea related to a solution to America’s ongoing battle over gun laws. For a split second hope welled up in me. “The key to the gun debate…” as if the next few words might contain an insight no one had ever thought of before. Perhaps I am to be forever guilty of being a wanton optimist, or blind idealist. I confess it. Perhaps it was too early in the morning and the quote caught be off guard. But instead of solution or even subtle insight what I read instead was just the same old divisive partisan rhetoric that seem inexorably attached to certain issues vital to the heart of America, and equally split; so much so that they remain forever stalled and unmoved. Arguments for the sake of argument.
Call it the chicken or the egg debate. No one can know for certain which came first in many of these arguments — the issue itself or the decision to wrap it up and place it in a box labeled either Left or Right. But one thing is certain: real progress is rarely achieved in areas where one is forced to feel as if they are aligning with a group that betrays their most heartfelt values. One can assert that many of the issues that plague the American populace are not strictly American issues, but rather are global evolutionary issues, important to a large majority of humanity and a wide variety of earth’s citizenry. America is only being used here as a symbol of a problem inherent in all societies where people co-habitate in large numbers. Innumerable so-called “issues” that humans have been struggling with for centuries fit into this category. Gun laws being just one. Abortion, contraception and women’s reproductive health is another. Capital punishment another. Immigration. Labor and unions. Big business versus small. Big Oil versus the Environment. The corporatocracy versus the everyday man. Even matters as seemingly small and benign as whether or not to fund education, the arts or humanities have been thrown into one of the boxes either Right or Left.
Thus placed in their “proper place” the issues, even simple ones, are deliberately made to look bigger than they are. No longer as simple as how one feels about the specifics of a particular issue, each takes on a much grander meaning due to this false sense of loyalty or allegiance to a larger cause that’s been indoctrinated into the people. If you believe that “if we outlaw guns then only outlaws will have guns” and therefore support pro-Second Amendment rights then you probably also want to do away with free education and food stamps and would be happy to see children starving in the streets. If you believe that all people have an unalienable right to marry who they choose and raise children of their own regardless of their sexual orientation then you probably want to eradicate big business and corporate profits to fill the pockets of the proletariat with free money instead.
Of course this isn’t usually the case. It is only what we would have each other believe. The issues are unique unto themselves and often don’t rub elbows with any others. It’s an illusion perpetrated on the masses by an intelligent few…
