From Slave to Shaman

How many times have you felt like a hapless onlooker in a world seemingly gone insane?

How many times have you wondered how things ever managed to get into the unprecedented mess they are in today?

How many times have you longed to escape this crazy turmoil?

I’m confident to predict that the answer is ‘many’.

But reflect on this: there must be thousands, if not millions and quite possibly billions, who feel exactly the same way. Let us assume the possibility that the majority of those living on this planet have had such thoughts from time to time. What does this tell us?

It tells us that we see our lives and what goes on ‘out there’, as two separate realities. It suggests that we feel largely removed and alienated from the goings-on of the planet, regardless of the fact that we live off its (unequally) shared resources. (more…)

Immaculate Conception – A Dark Side Deception

…leading to the rise of the Crypto Male

One of the things that might have given sex a bad name here on planet Earth, was the supposed arrival of highly realized beings whose conception (we are informed) did not come about via an act of conjugation between a man and a woman. Nor, one presumes, via an act of in-vitro fertilization.
But by some other means. Something which, as in the case of The Virgin Mary, the bible calls ‘Immaculate Conception’.

Now the word ‘immaculate’ suggests something without a flaw; something pure and perfect. And if the pure and the perfect are directly associated with being ‘sex free’ then – right from the outset – the sexual act is somehow denigrated. Denigrated as being less than pure.

So, does this mean that making progress in spiritual development has been linked, directly or indirectly, with the notion of somehow needing to rise above and beyond the act of sexual union? Beyond the expression of the duality inherent in male and female? In Yin and Yang? And in the process, has duality, as the source of sexual attraction, itself been reduced to that which needs to be ‘overcome’ rather than celebrated? (more…)

The Original Sin – A Myth Whose Time Is Up

Of all the deceptions pulled on humanity over the ages, The Original Sin is probably the most devastating. Yet hugely successful from the perspective of the perpetrators.

Almost everywhere the doctrine of Christianity forged its zealous mission to convert the masses, so the Original Sin accompanied it. Imposing the rationale of guilt on untold millions whose open minds no doubt thought they were receiving a message of emancipation and light.

Not so my friends, you were in fact receiving a message just about as dark as darkness gets!

The extraordinary power of a message, properly formed, packaged and publicized, is something we have all come to learn a lot about in recent decades. ‘The medium is the message’ declared Marshall McLuhan back in 1964. And that edict could easily pass for the moment the first biblical texts let it be known that a man called Adam and a woman called Eve got the whole human race off to a very bad start … from which it appears to have never recovered.

There’s a Seal On The Soul

. . . . . that cannot be removed

None of us who were raised in the orthodox Christian Tradition are likely to remember the moment when the priest placed his index finger on our foreheads and moved it so as to record the shape of the cross on our tiny brows.

Yet this moment becomes a symbolic and strategic ‘freeze frame’ within the wider context of our initiation into the control system called ‘society’.

Some at the receiving end of this ritual have gone on to repeat it with their own children. Holding, or passing to the priest, the little bundle of innocence so that the mark of the cross can be painted onto that beautiful expanse which links the two temples. But there’s one thing one can almost certainly count on, the fact that almost nobody truly understands what they are doing. (more…)

Smart Phones – Stupid People

Surely no one can have failed to notice: engineered electronic intelligence in pocket sized parameters is a formidable little weapon of potential mass destruction.

However, one must not make assumptions, since most of humanity has so far failed to notice that atmospheric aerosol geoengineering is a weapon of mass destruction, I guess it should come as no surprise that ‘smart’ cell phones remain largely unrecognized as the little mind-bombs that they are.

Not the sort of bombs that cause vast explosions – that form of destruction may be close to past its sell-by date for those who would engineer our futures. No need, after all, to blow us all to hell if we are perfectly happy to go there quietly, of our own accord. And many millions seem ready to do just that; led by the Pied Piper of convenience technology. (more…)

The Reengineering of Life – and How to Prevent It

What do atmospheric aerosol geoengineering, the genetic engineering of foods and the reordering of the human genome – have in common?

They are all part of an attempt to alter the fundamental building blocks of life and to put in their place an artificial substitute that is one hundred percent subject to the will of its owner-controllers.

Clearly these owner-controllers fully believe their personal vision of ‘the perfect life’ to be greatly superior to any other. But no megalomaniac knows that he is a megalomaniac, so unless physically removed from their position of influence – much damage can be expected to result.

Many of us today puzzle over the weird, surreal even, diversion that life appears to have taken to have allowed such anti-life authoritarian figureheads to gain any traction at all on this planet. Not just to espouse their insane visions, but to actually garner enough support to set them in motion. (more…)

The Subjugation of the Creator – End Game of Our Tormentors

Have you ever reflected on what might be the ultimate goal of the oppressors of humanity? I have – and this is what emerged.

Those in pursuit of power are seldom satisfied. They always want more. In a seemingly never ending act of compulsive consumption, they seek to dominate or destroy all that stands in the way of their thirst for power.

The forces that currently hold a controlling influence over this world are of this stable. Their goal of ‘full spectrum dominance’ or ‘total domination’ of various aspects of this planet is not the summation of their ambition, it is a mere stepping stone along the way. (more…)

The Appointment With Infinity

Part 2 of ‘The Active Side of Infinity’

The writings of Carlos Castaneda: commentary by Julian Rose

“The practicalities that scientists are interested in are conducive to building more and more machines. They are not geared to reaching the vastness of the universe as a personal, experiential affair.”

“Someday I’ll tell you more about the forces that drive man to act like an ass. Some of us make sense when we talk because we are prepared to use words accurately. But most of us are not prepared to take ourselves seriously as men who are going to die.
Being immortal, we wouldn’t know how to do that. It makes no difference what complex machines scientists can build. The machines can in no way help anyone face the unavoidable appointment: the appointment with infinity.” (more…)

The Active Side of Infinity

Carlos Castaneda and Julian Rose

“Every one of us human beings has two minds. One is totally ours, it is like a faint voice that always brings us order, directness, purpose. The other is a foreign installation. It brings us conflict, self-assertion, doubts, hopelessness: it’s ourselves as the ‘me-me’ centre of the world.”

Thus spoke Carlos Castaneda in ‘The Active Side of infinity’ which is part of the ‘Teachings of Don Juan’ series. And I’m going to give you more excerpts from The Active Side of Infinity. Because I believe that these writings present Shamanic teachings to us in a direct, powerful way – and at a time when we most need them. (more…)

Spinning the Web of Life

Spiders do it. Take a look – oh what an amazing creation! Working their way out from the first circle; filling-in every loop of the circuit; spinning on the outward pull; determined, full of intention, guided by Divine. So my friends, why can’t we?

Look at that final creation on the garden gate on a misty October morning – wow – what a stunner! Stay looking and what do you see? A little universe spun into being, oh so delicate, so strong, so inspired.
So my friends, why can’t we?

Its gossamer threads trembling in anticipation, its architecture resonant with spontaneous beauty, oh so glorious – so my friends, why aren’t we? (more…)
