Covering the Bases on August Total Solar Eclipse – 2017

corona

INTRODUCTION

In 999 AD there was a total solar eclipse in Southern Europe. The combination of the ellipse with the calendar – the upcoming 1000 AD produced interesting effects. Many people believed the world was going to end. Farmers stopped tilling their fields. Many people gave property and “worldly possessions” to The Roman Catholic Church.

There was a famine

On New Year’s Eve 999 many huddled in churches waiting for the end. When nothing happened many demanded what they had given to the church back. The Church Fathers said no. There was a famine and the middle/business class collapsed. It took Middle Class took ten years to rebuild.

Many succumbed to a similar hysteria around the Y2K virus. A friend never recovered from going into debt in preparation for the collapse and has been looking into conspiracy theories for new collapses.

Endings and beginnings are based on the invention of language that feed ego.

Astrologers and the current eclipse are predicting big changes and transformation. There is a need in a culture based in capitalism for events and a cellular desire / fear-aversion for endings (also built into Judaeo-Christian and Islamic philosophy). Endings and beginnings are based on the invention of time and language that feed ego functions in us all. While eclipses occur four to seven times per year – both solar and lunar. Solar and lunar eclipses are approximately two weeks apart from one another.

A Solar Eclipse both total and partial are positions of the Moon in front of the Sun casting a shadow on Earth. A Lunar Eclipse is the shadow of Earth that blocks the Sun from illuminating the Moon. The symbology of eclipses or metaphors  in Solar Eclipses – unconscious or “the dark side” of personality / inner self comes to light and in Lunar Eclipses – unconscious or “the dark side” of emotions come to light – because we observe the process.

The Astrologers I have read so far regarding the eclipse event do NOT predict exact events. It’s all rather vague, claiming transformation. There are some reasons for this:

  • Modern Astrology doesn’t predict events
  • Astrological transits (planets, the Sun and Moon in relationships with one another and/or with natal – or birth charts or progressed charts of persons, entities – the USA for example) are parameters of possibility.
  • Parameters of possibility don’t predict events per se. Parameters are about limits and a way of prescribing sets of variables within a set, in a formal manner.
  • Parameters of possibility can fall High, Medium or Low probabilities
  • Parameters of possibility can be interpreted from a Transcendental Perspective, from a Conscious Perspective or an Unconscious Perspective.
  • Whether our experience falls within the parameters of possibilities depends on too many factors, but if we were to list the salient factors they might be:
  • Choice, will, and decision
  • Soul age
  • Hazard / luck
  • If an astrologer were to predict a specific “fearful” event and they proved to be correct then is a self-fulfilling prophecy dictating the process may have occurred. No person or astrologer would want this responsibility.
  • If an astrologer were to predict a specific “positive” event and it proved to be correct then others would look to this astrologer for past and future replication of this “educated guess”. And /or consider them “psychic”.
  • If an astrologer predicts a “positive” but vague and seemingly magical future event then there is usually no way to determine whether it actually happened or not from a common perspective.

BUT

According to astrological cycles the new moon / solar eclipse (August 21, 2017 at 18:30 UT, 2:30 pm EDT, 11:30 am PDT) are about new beginnings having to do with revealing the shadows of the emboldened ego /self. (Trump’s chart relates strongly to this eclipse – more later on that.)

a new world could be opening into a shared power base

Astrologically the obvious major influences are the release of shadow elements regarding authority and a revolution. This could portend a shift of power in the world – ie the USA being dethroned as the top of the heap of the Superpowers and / or a healing of that power.

Communication will be intense (as in negotiation – perhaps) – Mercury in retrograde and fraught with possible deceptions and/or lofty ideals as a one-world government etc. – Neptune (ideals / spirituality, illusions and delusions) opposite Mercury.

Regulus – a “fixed” star has been in Leo for the last 2,000 years and has recently enter Virgo. Regulus – meaning royalty and those that serve royalty (the patriarchy) has moved into Virgo – innocence and healing bounded by a spiritual community.

This looks to be a time of stand-offs that are painfully entering a new time of healing.

Trump could get a karmic kick in the butt

Looking at this as a key opening a lock: a new world could be opening into a shared power base. In other worlds the patriarchal hierarchy is gone and this new way of a community of shared power is emerging. It could be felt in how all our relationships work – assuming you don’t take the role of the parent or child and instead become a peer.

Trump’s natal chart reflects his impulsivity and his karma. This eclipse could reveal his shadow and end up with a karmic kick in the butt.

Last Mass Extinction Scenarios and the Best Alternative

earth grids1Background

About 25,000 years ago life on Earth was substantially very different. People had a natural ability to connect to nature, to communicate with animals and plants as well as each other in a way that was telepathic and empathic (emotional) woven together. A Guardian of the Planet due to races on the other side of the galaxy seeking to mine higher functions of humans – basically to eat the light that humans generated shut off this ability. A buffer was put in place for about 200 to 300 years. When it was removed the ability did not return for the majority of humans though the danger had passed.

Aliens and humans from the future orchestrated a mass extinction event that instigated a thermonuclear war between two major powers and Atlantis. The war and the testing of a crystalline communications and power transfer system totally destroyed almost all the people of Earth and decimated Atlantis through massive floods and sinking islands and sub-continents. The Toltec described the end of the 3rd world as a thermonuclear war.

 

The era of the 3rd World of Atlantis and Lemuria were a time of clans and guilds. Lemuria pioneered genetically produced human beings to augment and replace the Servant Clans towards the end times of the third world. Many of the new servant class were clairvoyant and knew of the impending end and went into caves. The Bible mentions Giants. The servant class was short in stature 4 to 5 feet tall. The “Giants” were easily six feet or taller. They emerged from Shambhalla (also know as the Hidden Directorate, Shangri-La, Beldovia) to assist the humans of that time to cleanse from radiation poisoning and to provide seed stock and grains. The Shambhallans traveled as couples man-woman pairs taught populations how to cleanse from excessive radiation and then they perished.

 

The servant peoples evolved into the Matriarchy and survived for 5 to 6,000 years before being overcome by the Huns. There was no single Mass Extinction Event between the Matriarchy (the 4th world) and the 5th world, the Patriarchy. The Matriarchy survived the longest in North American before the influence of Europeans and other influences destroyed their way of life through genocide.

 

Jeffery Wolf Green astrologer and author of many books – Pluto being one of them (Pluto – death brings new life) says that we, meaning all of us alive today- born in the mid 1930s to present time were alive during the matriarchy. And those awakened are the leaders into the sixth world.

 

Moving into the Sixth World: Three Scenarios

 Moving from worst to best. Each of the three scenarios listed below in terms of maximizing economics and limiting human suffering is the last choice.

Continue with Climate-Denier Policy

Droughts, floods, super-storms, wildfires, famines, water-wars and other resource wars are just the beginning. Species of plants, animals – gone.

Result – Human Species wiped out.

Preventative measures – life underground for 1,000 to 3,000 years – only the rich will be able to access this. Underground seed banks and genome banks to clone animals when humanity returns to the surface.

A Thermonuclear Holocaust

 A small amount of humans survive – in underground bunkers and space stations. Well space stations are unsustainable. Population reduced to about one million or less. There may be places where radiation may be lower, but due to radiation cloud cover for about 1,000 years it won’t make a difference.

Some may build domes in advance of the war(s) and this could be viable with orbital solar panels.

Underground seed banks and genome banks to clone animals when humanity returns to the surface.

Common Sense

images

In the early 1980s I lived in the Central Valley of California in the city of Stockton with hot summers – many days of 105 degrees or more and cold damp winters.

Exhaust from cars would bond with the water molecules and give the fog a “stink”

Winters in the Central Valley where we would often experience Tuolumne or Tule Fog (pronounced Toolie). A layer of fog or clouds that would condense after a rain or cool moist conditions that forms a layer of fog beginning at 2,000 feet or lower. Temperatures in the 40s would seem lower due to the increased humidity and it made for bone chilling weather. Tule Fog is known for a constant mist or drizzle that is sometimes freezing when the temperature drops as it occasionally does.

Common sense and logic easily solved this question.

The chief problem of Tule Fog is that it is known not to burn off and thus would stay during the nights and days for weeks and even months on end. After a time the fog would begin to give off an odor. Exhaust from cars would bond with the water molecules and give the fog a “stink”

Common sense and logic easily solved this question. For me it was giving me the beginnings of breathing difficulties and an aversion to being outside due to the stench.

The University of California in Davis did a study of Tule Fog and pollution and “proved” what I already knew.

I didn’t need a scientific study telling me what I had already deduced from my experience.

This is a snapshot of a person living from fear as are others.

Extrapolating the Tule Fog inversion layer containing molecules of carbons and pollutants from cars to an inversion level around the world doesn’t take scientific proof.

Ninety seven percent of climate scientists have confirmed that human beings have produced enough carbon emissions to change the climate and trigger the beginnings of a mass extinction event that will end in the elimination of the human species unless we stop it.

Three percent of the scientists that disagree with the evidence have had their premises obscured through a variety of filters as well as others:

  • Fear and a desire to live in a past environment of the 1940s and 50s where growth was unchecked by environmental concerns
  • Suspension of Common Sense in favor of the security of a past reality
  • Under the pay of oil companies and Conservative PACS and Think Tanks that have a heavy investment in denying human contribution to climate change.

I have a relative that lives under the rubric of this fear and it permeates every aspect of her life. Before inheriting some money from another relative she was less conservation, more joyous and less obsessed with money and subsequent greed. It’s saddens me. Mere logic has no effect on her position. She watches and freely admits to relying on Fox News as an oasis surrounded by the heinous Liberal Media.

,,,doesn’t it make sense to begin to explore and develop alternatives to oil now rather than wait until gasoline reaches $20 per gallon?

Her isolation and refusal to live in the present is sad and disturbing. She won’t watch any recent TV shows or movies with James Spader because she wants to only remember him when he was young and sexy in “Sex, Lies and Videotape”. She won’t watch George Clooney or Sean Penn movies because their liberals and therefore – the enemy. I sent her a Noam Chomsky Interview around the time of the bombing of the World Trade Center in 2001. She said it made sense, but five days later she was shouting death to Muslims. She voted for Trump. At dinners out (around 5 to 6 pm) she can’t understand why families bring their children (screaming infants and toddlers) to dinner at restaurants – why they don’t hire babysitters. Even after a logic explanation of families wanting to be with their children and not being able to afford a sitter. Or she could choose to go to dinner at 8 pm when the likelihood of young children wouldn’t be eating out on a weeknight. She believes Wal-Mart serves a valuable service to communities… Need I go on.

This is a snapshot of a person living from fear as are others. I feel it when I’m around her (not very often). I remember in her before she was infested by money and greed. Not all of her old characteristics are gone – she displays caring at times but couched in denial of human responsibility to climate change.

Life and the changes in our world both technologically, politically and environmentally are overwhelming. Many people cannot tolerate the acceleration and destabilization of modern institutions. Intellectually and/or emotionally they require a simple solution to a problem.

With my relative I steer away from most of the content of my life (as a spiritual – political activist) and focus on the present and the personal. Its a common sense response to an immovable object.

The only way I would consider a debate with a person regarding climate change (like my relative) would be a side step of the issue. Coming from that oil is not a renewable resource – doesn’t it make sense to begin to explore and develop alternatives to oil now rather than wait until gasoline reaches $20 per gallon?

Search for Meaning

 

Curiosity is part of the human condition. Searching is an action of curiosity – “What’s over the next rise?” or “Beyond the next curve of the path deep into the forest?” Curiosity and searching are the exciting facets built for the thrill of learning. Meaning is derived from learning and beliefs. Beliefs are a complex structure that shapes reality (see https://psychesweather.wordpress.com/2016/01/04/the-other-invisible-beliefs/ )

The idea of separating meaning from our selves may be a game that our egos play that could help to promote learning via the locomotion provided in a journey. Since I am positing that our brains project reality out into the world then meaning is projected “out there” too.

Let’s take a step back for a moment. A child learns language from parents / adults and model their behaviors based on these adults both what they say and what they do. The child’s personality develops through socialization with other children and adults through the structures of school, play and family. The young adult begins to have ideas of their own but only in as much as these ideas a generated in a context of socialization. Perception is trained through the development of ego based on language (written, verbal and non-verbal) and its structures, which through further extrapolation becomes a complex society and civilization that becomes reality.

Okay – back to meaning. Our egos follow whims and are drawn by a curiosity impulse to follow whatever is presented in the field of attention. Some of this could be considered play and some titillation or both. Even if one decides what is the meaning of life a search ensues to uncover the facets to support that meaning. So there is a constant projection game underway.

When I worked as an experimental filmmaker I did a piece for a group of artists / sculptors called “A Rock Video”. It was a group of four artists making sculptures from rocks from a dried stream-bed. They piled rocks on top of each other making towers and bridges without any adhesive connecting glue. I cut the piece to their liking – about twenty minutes. I contacted a woman’s drumming group to do the score. One of the sculptors decided he was going to tell the women how to score the piece, wanting them to do a beat when a rock landed. I told him it was a mistake and would never work. But it was tried anyway and it didn’t work. I asked the leader of the group to watch the video with her group and improv to it. When I showed the final piece the artist who was convinced that it was going to be a disaster was amazed.

“How did you do that?”

“I didn’t your brain made it work.”

Any piece of music match to any film our brains make sense of it. For example if you lay the music of “Psycho” over the part of “The Wizard of Oz” when they emerge from the forest and see the Emerald City for the first time. It becomes a different movie but it works because our minds project meaning and structure all the time. You could try this at home.

We make reality.

This article was prompted from Facebook and the offering of quizzes testing things like – “What Native American tribe are you from?” “What country are you a citizen of?” and other questions indicative of the reality projection parameters. These amusing distractions and the rate we play them may be indicative of a collective shame of being Americans under a dictatorial rule circa 2017 or not.

 

 

 

 

Exponential Trump Logic – The bullet list (part one)

images

 

  • Gut Healthcare – screw the poor – tax cut for the rich
  • Gut Environmental Protection Laws – kill people off twice by A. exposing them to higher levels of toxicity and B not offering adequate health care

 

With more air and water pollution comes more illness both acute and chronic and people without enough money and/or pre-existing conditions set in place by Trump more will die. Is this an out-of-sight / out-of-mind brain of the POTUS or a deliberate ploy to kill off people without enough money to buy insurance (I didn’t say the poor here because the working class and/or middle class is included in this picture). This is a nifty circular ploy.

 

The insular mind of Trump focused on WINNING, GETTING EVEN AND MAKING MONEY automatically excludes an awareness of a fair healthcare bill and how repealing environmental protection laws interact to cause bigger health problems. This allows the less moderate and conservative GOP to eliminate the working /middle class from being full citizens of America in favor of the rich in a play-out of the logic.

INTERPRETATION:

Revolution and unpredictability blended with warlike / warrior energy fueled by an intense authoritarian backdrop with an eye towards a bold and perhaps narcissistic future.

Combine this with disembodied emotions in service to a grandiose indecisive expansiveness and connected to trying to hold everything together by doing the impossible.

Planets and Aspects:

Empathic Protection

Originally published May 21, 2015 and updated June 3, 2017

VertexSmalldarkerDone-copy

Most children are empaths. Many people are empaths and sometimes this is a matter of degree. If we begin to think as the empathic ability as a continuum then sometimes people are highly empathic – highly sensitive and sometimes less empathic perhaps due to circumstance and/or better boundaries. However in every social group there may be one or more empaths that may function as checks for both conscious and unconscious emotional patterns within a particular group.

A client who was an empath asked me how she could keep out “bad energy” or “negative feelings”. How could she protect herself? This is a good question. No one who is an empath stays in a feeling place all the time. We go into our intellect as a way of protecting ourselves from the suffering of the world and from our own suffering.

Emotion is analogous to flowing water.

No one can stay in the heart one hundred percent of the time without breaking down. The best parts of ego allow us to balance emotions with the intellect. It is possible for an empath, stuck in fear for example, to begin to rationalize judge and exclude others shifting themselves from the heart into the mind and using the intellect as a fortress against emotions. A person overwhelmed with emotion could be fearful, defensive and react in anger if they are unaware of the empathic abilities. Other empaths may seem to attract nothing but negative energy from others (see Shadowcatchers below) and this may originate from being scapegoated as a child and accepting the role as an adult. Balancing mind and emotions requires attention and the use of thinking to identify emotions in others and our selves. Once we engage the mind to identify emotions we can develop a plan of action to help us cope with others’ feelings (see example below).

Most people who are empathic sponges would like to keep bad stuff out and let only the good stuff in, that’s only natural.

 

The best defense for empaths is flow.

 

Let it flow through you. A metaphor for flow of emotions is a fast flowing stream, waterfall or river. Emotion is the empaths currency. Emotion appears, we sometimes process it and then it goes. Empaths ability to feel others’ emotions and identify these emotions can be developed into a skill and can trigger responses in empaths that remind us of woundings from the past. As soon as you realize you are triggered remind yourself that you wouldn’t be able to recognize the trigger unless you were ready to deal with it.

If the empath can answer these questions when feeling others’ emotions then protection becomes simplified somewhat:

  1. Does this feeling I’m feeling belong to me? (Does it originate with me?)
  2. If YES, decide whether to deal with it in current time or postpone it until you can deal with it.
  3. If NO, then either let it flow through you quickly and ground it down into Molten Core of Earth, or offer it to be burnt up in the sun, or create a column of light to the left or right of you and put the emotion or set of emotions in the column of light.
  4. If MAYBE, it’s likely that the emotions that you’re feeling are similar emotions than the persons or persons producing them and you have lessons to learn here or you feel triggered. Ask that Spirit separate your feelings from the others and then deal with the feelings from the others as you would in #3 and /or in #1.

Many times the four-question method above may not be possible. When we encounter others’ emotions we may be overwhelmed with their emotions. Their emotions may trigger similar emotions in us. Part of our abilities as empaths is recognizing the common threads of emotion that bond humans together. Two common emotions that humans feel are grief and love. Feeling love in another or in others feels good. Feeling grief can be problematic. Part of the problem is that grief can spawn feelings such as sadness, anger / rage and these can turn into depression sometimes. Recognizing when you are triggered and dealing with the trigger is a first step at diffusing overwhelming emotions.

There can be two kinds of empaths for the purposes of this piece.[1] If you are reading this and feel you are an empath then you are on the path of a Conscious Empath. However there are unconscious empaths. These people become overwhelmed without knowing the reasons and sometimes blame others or become depressed. Their childhood traumas may be so complicated and their self-images so solid with walls instead of boundaries that their empathic abilities overwhelm them and prevent them from seeing triggers. They cannot process the overwhelming emotional onslaught without help. Usually some of these people feel they don’t need help.

You may also be a Shadowcatcher.

You may be a magnet for others shadows. Shadowcatchers may be absorbers of others unconscious projections. Essentially a shadowcatcher feels the shadow of another or shadows from groups. I noticed this when I was a participant in a healing circle. The facilitator asked for loving and healing energies from the group through coming forward – for a laying-on of hands or from our spot in the circle. Immediately I felt a surge of resentment and anger that was overwhelming. It happened many times until I realized what I was feelings was not coming from me. And as soon as I grounded it out I felt the love and was able to participate in the healing circle.

Sensitive people always attract less sensitive people to them especially if one or both parties are not conscious of their sensitivities. In psychology this is called Projective Identification.[2] Our culture often brands sensitive people as “weak” when in fact the opposite is true. I grew up in a stiff upper-lip Yankee family where tears were rarely shed. My Mother would shame me for my tearful behaviors by saying – “You’re too sensitive.” Often it was she who was projecting feelings onto me that I could express and then she would shame me for having done so because she did not want to acknowledge the feelings in herself. When sensitive people become aware of their sensitivities and can name their feelings and take responsibility for them with “I feel” statements then merely on the psychological basis feelings can be owned and the blame/shame game can be reduced.

If you are an empath that becomes infected with the shadows of others and these shadows blend with your emotions, then problems can become severely compounded. As a child and survivor of ritual sexual abuse that had been repressed I was severely depressed and passively suicidal for all of my teen years. When the memories of abuse began surfacing in my 40s I was able to begin to deal with the feelings and slowly work through the most arduous territories of the abuse. Every person on the planet has grown-up in a dysfunctional family to one degree or another. If you played the role of an empath in your family and that particular family was highly dysfunctional and negative then its likely that you may be carrying your family shadow and are acting out what had been passed on to you. There are three paths of approach that may help with your healing:

 

  • A daily spiritual practice that includes working on developing a non-judgmental and compassionate observed of your behaviors, thoughts and emotions (feelings)
  • Therapy
  • A visit to a healer to assist in removing possible ancestral beings stuck in your electromagnetic field.

 

I have been engaged in a daily spiritual practice for over 40 years and more intensely during the flashbacks of the abuse.

“Why Traps” – an Affirming Present or a Future Expectation of Negative Outcomes

brain_f2 Psychoanalysis uncovers the genesis of a problem or problems rooted in the unconscious and when understood by the conscious mind there is an occurrence of healing. This is a vast oversimplification and it belongs to a world of mechanistic cause and effect relationships with an assumption that the mind unlocks healing.

Our brains are hardwired for fear and possible negative outcomes.

This myth is perpetuated into logical thought and the some of shortcomings of the scientific method. In other words psychoanalysis has perpetuated an assumption that thought and the will can overcome unconscious traumas of childhood. That would be true if everyone lived in a cause and effect world.

Fears and anxieties based on an expectation of a negative outcome is an urge some people to begin to try and think how to escape the negative outcome. This in-turn encourages more thinking to solve the problem. This is the cycle of worry or obsessive thinking. The pattern of this kind of thinking may soothe the thinker for a nanosecond but then initiates the obsessive pattern again. The worrier doesn’t use fear to attract the negative outcome to themselves but allows them to find situations were the negative pattern manifests. [People come to me and ask about romantic relationships they inevitably say they feel in-love for the person because it feels “right” and “familiar”. The root word of “familiar” is family. After a few dates I suggest some questions. If the person asking me is a woman talking about a man, I ask the woman about her relationship with her father. I suggest that the woman ask the man about his relationship with his mother. You get the idea.] The family we were raised in represented a particular world. Some offspring leave the world of the dysfunction – often cause and effect relationships for a world in the present and they may slip back into the cause and effect world when encountering a parent or two or siblings. The function of expectation for a negative outcome is key and this is often an unconscious process.

When we humans feel joy and happiness expectation falls away.

Our brains are hardwired for fear and possible negative outcomes. This took place over a long period of time probably tens of thousand of years and was based in survival against real danger, such as being attacked and eaten by predators. Eventually the patterns that helped our ancestors cope with dangers were substituted with fears based on anxieties about our negative expectations of a future based on a causal world.

spacewave1

When we humans feel joy and happiness expectation falls away. These are emotions that expand and uplift and belong to a different reality than the expectations of negative outcomes and how to solve them. Expectations of negative outcomes and its solution – obsessional thinking curl us into self-protective loops that create conditions for suffering and breakdowns. Joy and happiness belong to a separate reality divorced from expectation and in the world of the present.

This takes a compassionate neutral place within our Being.

I had a friend that would ask me “Why?” to whatever subject she was grappling with at the time. I would answer that “Why?” questions assume that if one knew the reason for this or that problem then there would be a self-evident solution. “Why” questions belong to the cause and effect world of psychoanalysis. Cause and effect worlds are less complex and predictable. The Higher Worlds predicated in the present are more complex because the emotions of joy, happiness and love open us and make “Why” questions superfluous. The intellect and rational thought is not the answer to everything.

Overcoming worry and causal realities takes time and effort. Awareness is the first step. Awareness must be free of judgment. The spin of worry / obsessional thinking must be observed without judgment. This takes a compassionate neutral place within our Being. This place requires cultivation. Once the force of a witness is sufficiently cultivated we become aware when we are obsessing and have an expectation for a negative outcome.

loveflameEternity-copy2

A conscious breath may be enough to interrupt the pattern for a second. The use of distraction, moving out pattern of thinking to feelings of hope and joy may help us shift out of the pattern. Repeated efforts along these lines are necessary throughout our lives because of the hard-wiring of our brain explained above. For a better habit to replace a bad habit- especially one that is hardwired into our brains must be continually practiced.

I have noticed that breakthroughs into other worlds and even into a “place” beyond time are possible.

 

Embodying The Future

IMG_3104

Preparation

In 1984 I experienced a number of transformative experiences that by ordinary criteria were very odd.

In my dreams over the course of a week and a half I had had experiences of lying down and becoming the surface of the earth. The first was from my home in Northern California to New Orleans, the second to off the east coast of Florida. The third was at the eastern shores of Africa, the fourth was the Arabian Sea near Kenya and the fifth was the Indian Ocean. On the sixth night my head was in Sonoma and my feet off the east coast of Australia near New Zealand. My body was Earth – at least the surface anyway.

Next I felt my feet and ankles in Uranium mines in Utah, New Mexico and Arizona.[1] When my feet and ankles were in Arizona a council of four to seven Navajo Elders appeared to me [at the time of the dream I recognized them as Indigenous peoples of the aforementioned states above]. For three nights of dreams they regarded me without speaking. I didn’t speak either. On the fourth night the asked me if I would help heal the earth where the Uranium mines was – mostly in Arizona. I agreed.

Seven years later the 1984 dreams seem related to one of a number of skin conditions.

The way of Being is a way of understanding future while eliminating “future events” and the need for any future at all.

Initially I pursued Allopathic Medicine (the AMA) for a solution. I tried homeopathic next and it ultimately worked. On the distal side of my right ankle there was a mound about 3.5 inches long and 1.5 inches wide and .5 inches high that resembled Ayers Rock / Uluru in Australia. It wept and itched constantly. At night I’d put band-aides over my fingernails to refrain from scratching. It occurred to me that this might have been a metaphorical result of having my ankles in Uranium mines in the dreamtime of 1984.

The Future is Inside of Me

I don’t even know how to write about this that makes any sense. First I opened myself to remember an experience I had had in November of 2001 see: https://psychesweather.wordpress.com/2017/02/24/remembering-the-future/ “Traveling” to a future to the beginning of the formation of the planet and further “back”.

Presently catalysts have begun to appear to trigger more details of a future I feel is coming into being. Many people are hungry for a future that feels secure – a future based on the security of a known present, events, relationships and experiences transplanted into a utopian reality that is easily recognized as familiar experiences with cool tech. That kind of future is based on what is already knowable and belongs to a finite linear reality that is hard-wired into our prefrontal cortex and limbic systems. It belongs to ego and language. It has a “me” and a “not me”. It has beginnings, middles and ends and is a finite closed loop that our ego finds safe. The future I feel within is vastly different and unrecognizable by our present standards.

Being is not so easy to describe without losing it’s meaning in the linear based reality of language and ego, but it’s a starting place. The way of Being is a way of understanding future while eliminating “future events” and the need for any future at all. Being time is now where the past are memories of pasts existing in our present. Futures are unfulfilled memories (based on content), expectations, probabilities, possibilities, anticipations and the like that are projections that exist in the present. Everything is happening right now.

Being is a state of consciousness that has no attachment to relationships, events, possessions and the like. Being is consciousness.

All work is based on community exchange where money does not exist.

Eventually the state of Being gets interpreted by ego which in-turn analyzes associations based on emotion and conjectures something in a linear based future. I believe that taking political actions from a progressive base is a way of co-creating the future with others and that this action has instigated an organic spiritual being of the future to join with my corporeal body to support this future.

We have come to regard the past – beyond written history as primitive because of an assumption based on technology and the threads of human evolution. We live powerlessly in wild hopes or dismal fears of a future due to assumptions we make about “the past” and “the future” instead of learning to grow in our Being in an all encompassing Present. Consciousness when anchored to time evolves through history as a spiral returning to its starting point. Go far enough into the past or the future and arrive at your starting place in the present.[2]

Its not quite the starting place in the present if Being has evolved. Being exists both in the world of time and outside of time. When I work on growing Being in myself time begins to pop-out and Being connects with the Cosmic Consciousness that exists beyond time. The spiral of time enters a higher octave due to an expansion of consciousness.

Impressions of this future (not necessarily based in a linear time-space continuum and could emerge all at once):

~ The seed of oneness returns and as a result the connective tissue being all beings is uncovered and deeply experienced as a positive regard or love between all beings.

~ People think in complete thoughtforms.[3]

~ All work is based on community exchange where money does not exist. [This seems like a nice fantasy but difficult to imagine – no banks, no stock exchange, no cash in my wallet or purse, no credit cards, etc. ] [4]

~ What I do for or to another I do for or to myself with immediate consequences that are reflected positively, neutrally, or negatively. This happens now but not on a global scale not with all communities everywhere. [This makes oppression impossible. Fears diminish significantly.]

~ Work is done for pleasure and the desire to learn and enrich others and our selves.

As technology evolves the future of work as we know it is diminishing. Climate Change requires that we work together in community to resolve a problem that is an imminent threat for the survival of the human species.

This Being of the Future within me is growing and evolving. When I am connected with this Being forces of her/his energy get pumped out through my limbs to the world at large. This is a work in progress with updates to chronicle the Being within me that helps me and us all to embody the future.

A practice of saying “thank-you” from the heart

As a recovering perfectionist I learned how to receive compliments and let go of doubt, low self-esteem and the constant need to be perfect in just a moment.

I was attending a Gurdjieff (Spiritual) School in the early 1980s. We were organized into groups for the first semester based on type. I was in a group of individualists who were creative, inventive loners, not playing well with others and had a cynical / angry / awkward edge to each of us. Our team / cooperation skills weren’t very good and so we were assigned to repair a truck gather wood while other groups worked on construction projects – finishing a greenhouse and building a loafing shed, and working on building a house. Our lack of teamwork and inexperience became evident when cooking a dinner. Our first dinner cooked by the ten of us for ourselves and 30 other students was a disaster. The appointed manager didn’t know what he was doing. But we improved.

After Thanksgiving I was manager for a meal. A woman from a group that made the best dinners approached me just before an evening class and congratulated me on doing a good job. I started to say that it could have been better (or perfect). Her reaction to my self deprecation was disappointment. In that moment I felt her praise, took it into my heart, looked her in the eyes and said:

                                                   Thank-you.



I saw that she was warmed by my acceptance of her compliment. This demonstrated an important principle of energy exchange.
It demonstrated a cycle of giving and receiving. When we work to accept a compliment in a heartfelt way we allow ourselves to receive a gift from another. When we say: “Thank-you” and look the person giving the compliment in the eyes we honor that person and acknowledge their gift with tender loving kindness. They gave us a compliment from a place of love and we have returned that compliment in kind. Giving and receiving is not a closed loop, it opens and allows energy to build.
The logical end of giving and receiving is a new economy based on community, cooperation where all are included…
