7 Omens That Herald the Dark Night of the Soul(Included Are Some Comments From Timothy Frappier)

I dedicate this post to all those who have, are and will experience the Dark Night Of The Soul. I know from experience how it feels and the amount of pain, suffering and misery that it can bring forth. Know this though, your darkness will become an asset. My Dark Night Of The Soul experiences have been very tough, taxing and extreme. Many times I wanted to kill myself or cease to exist. I would see all the darkness in this world and really ask myself what is the purpose to this or I would ask myself why I should tolerate and accept life as is?

I cannot speak of anyone else’s experiences with the Dark Night Of The Soul; I can only speak from mine and what I’ve discovered is life becomes a roller-coaster. Constantly oscillating between being positive and negative is what I’ve experienced. To the point where it’s very taxing on my spirit, mind and body. When I experience the Dark Night Of The Soul I feel very weak, drained, confused and I lack motivation to really do much. It literally makes me feel very tired and it’s not uncommon for me to sleep 10-12 hours a day when experiencing it.

The Dark Night Of The Soul inhibits me from thinking clearly, prevents me from reasoning through my life and making changes that would benefit me. I react in such a negative manner that if people were to witness it they would all say I was having a nervous breakdown. That’s what it seems like to me as well; the emotions, feelings, sensations and so much other stimuli can be overwhelming. It’s not uncommon for me to have a ‘mental rant’ for like hours about something. I literally will for hours be angry, frustrated and upset with something. It’s extremely taxing on my well-being and then on top of it I feel ashamed and guilty about it.

What I’ve learned is that the Dark Night Of The Soul is not something to be ashamed of. It’s something to be embraced, as Carl Jung has said:

5ad1e5ef78cfaafb190dd9aef836464d

I trust that my experiences with the Dark Night Of The Soul will result in a positive harvest. There is something behind all this darkness; there is a source of wisdom and knowledge that is rich beyond my wildest dreams. I know my experiences with it will help liberate myself from this false reality. This is what I’ve been seeing slowly; life is transforming for the better. I’m on the threshold and this last obstacle is all that stands before me.

I haven’t told many people before, but I’ve encountered what many would call a demon. The entity’s name was Choronzon and that experience was at the time very traumatic and terrifying. What I’ve come to understand is that my confrontation with this seemingly separate entity was actually the heralder of the Dark Night Of The Soul. Choronzon has had many names throughout our history, but the role he/she/it fulfills is called The Guardian Of The Threshold or The Dweller On The Threshold.

I’ve come to understand that my encounter with this entity wasn’t some kind of external event; it was an manifestation of my unconscious darkness within. All the character defects, darkness and negativity that I have not integrated came to the surface so that remedy and resolve could be achieved. This is a very good sign for me; it’s not something to look at with dread and despair, because of my encounter with this entity it was a defining moment that will forever be remembered on my part as the beginning of the dissolution of my ego. Which ironically describes what Choronzon is, which is a spirit of dissolution.

That’s the function of the Guardian Of The Threshold and The Dark Night Of The Soul. It is with the very act of making the Darkness conscious that we achieve ascension. I’ve been playing around with the idea of ascension for quite some time, but it wasn’t until I fully understand my life experiences that I discovered that I am on the path of ascension; but not only that it’s been revealed to me that I have already ascended and it’s just a matter of time until this manifest into my conscious life. I’ve included an song below this paragraph that enbodies the Dweller On The Threshold in a very beautiful and artistic manner.

I’ve been receiving messages from my ascended self(Higher Self) for quite some time now and it’s increased dramatically. I’ve also been receiving guidance to start sharing some of my personal writings that I wrote during and after an episode of The Dark Night Of The Soul and also my encounter with the Dweller On The Threshold. I’ve been extremely hesitant to share such information; in fact there have been many times I was about to share my story and writings but decided not to because I was afraid how people would perceive them. 

What I’ve discovered is that I am very much in contact and aware of what Cobra calls the Darkness which is a force that was generated by a angel(this angel is called Yaldabaoth) when he interacted with the Primary Anomaly. I’ve had dreams of where I was interacting with the entity called Yaldabaoth; whom cobra describes as being the angelic being that descended into the plasma plane and basically created The Darkness as we understand it.

I’ve been so afraid and worried about how people would react to my experiences, ideas, beliefs and dreams that I actually thought not sharing would be best. Yet there has been this soft and gentle voice that is urging me to start stepping out of my comfort zone and share what is within me. I will be sharing much more personal stories, experiences and beliefs with you all in the near future. I wont be revealing all of it in one big ‘data dump’, but I will share a story, article here and there. 

I’m being guided to share a story though that represents our future and what is in store for us. This is one of the stories that I wrote that when I read it I couldn’t remember doing so. I’ve had many stories that I’ve written in which I’ve come across and didn’t remember writing them. When I first read it I was brought to tears because in resonated so deeply with me that in those moments of reading every word in it I could FEEL the reality of this future. It’s THERE already; this future, this Golden Age is actually a livning reality in this very MOMENT! It’s the embodiment of what many of us will experience in the near future. I call it Our World:

 

Our World

                Our world is one filled with wonder and beauty. Where every living being realizes the divinity within themselves. The sky is riddled with our brothers and sisters who soar above and create dazzling colors and lights as they glide upon god’s living tapestry on high.

                The cities are made of such awe-inspiring substances that look as if they are crystals. The colors reflect the moods and thoughts of the people. Pouring more love, light and compassion into our surroundings. This type of reflection allows us to see how our mood affects ourselves and those around us. With this interconnectedness we utilize this tool to help those who are displaying colors that are signs of erroneous thought-processes. Erroneous only in the sense that we as a collective and individual level have decided to live by the ways of the Law of the One. When the awareness that one of us is struggling, we band together to bring healing, light and love upon this individual.

                This being becomes the center vocal point and we as a collective consciously determine the course of action that is needed. We act as a tribe, all contribute to the helping of those who struggle, until we see that they are back on their desired path. This form of assistance is ever-present, but occurrences of this type of help is diminishing as we reach a higher understanding both collectively and individually.

                We assist the cosmos in the upliftment and enlightenment of beings who we share a natural affinity towards. This affinity being forged between the similarities of both our experiences. Thus, we are attracted and magnetized to those whom we can identify with. We seek to free them from the same forms of bondages we experienced so long ago. We consult with the Higher Order in finding a common ground between us and these people.

                We’ve mastered our abilities to manifest. Telepathy and Empathy are as common as the spoken language was to us during 21st century. Our cities resemble small communities that reflect the magnificence of ourselves and the cosmos. Everything is designed to be in alignment with our understanding of the universe. The uniformity of buildings is undeniable across the whole globe. We no longer have the desire to promote separation, hence the uniformity of everything.

                We realized in our past that buildings were constructed with the intent to be different. Cities would construct monuments to stand out from the crowd. To be different and to attract people to them. People would build skyscrapers in order to be seen and known. We eventually understood that this was a mental sickness. This externalized need for identity was the workings of our carnal mind. Everything we created was done to be “different” and “Separate” from other creations.

                This created a atmosphere of competition and separation. The Council of Elders established by the Divine Hierarchy decided long ago to reformat the structure and layout of communities. They used intelligent designs to inspire certain ideas and impressions upon humanity. This intelligent design relieved the strain on Gaia. The early stages of colonialism were riddled with abuse and destruction of Gaia through the archetypes of Greed and Desire.

                Our world, reflects the interconnectedness of we the people. Our creations no longer emphasize the individual consciousness, but instead the collective consciousness. Our education models are one and the same, when new methods of learning are discovered to be more beneficial, it is universally applied. We no longer have phones, planes, cars, or automobiles. We travel with consciousness. We’ve mastered the art of traveling within our light vessel. What many called the Merkaba in times long ago on Earth. We communicate via telepathy and there is no need for any device to do something that we can do with our consciousness.

                We no longer identify each other with names. No such label is placed upon a individual because when we look at one another, we see the creator and all of humanity. We know that we are all one and we treat and love everyone as if they are ourselves. Names were discovered to be a apparatus of the separation mentality. This separatist mentality was very detrimental to our overall wellbeing.

                The world we currently reside upon looks nothing like it did in 21st century. When “The Event” occurred the process of Evolution happened so quickly that it literally was mind boggling to the generation that was alive during that shift. Those who lived their first 30-40 years in duality saw before the end of their time on earth a world that resembled nothing of the old. The transformation was so beautiful and marvelous that the children of those parents who experienced the polarized reality could not understand how the world was like that. They could not fathom it, because it went against so much of the beingness that they were brought into.

                The world we live in is governed by our Creator. We no longer have a separation of religion and science or religion and government. It is all one and the same. We see the interconnectedness in everything. We also don’t have the same form of government that existed during the beginning years of nation states. There is no police force, no violence, no starvation, everything is provided for. We came to understand that the world is abundant and more then capable to provide to everyone.

                The Prime Creator is in the center of everything we do. We for the first time recognized the mistakes of the past. Not in the sense that they were “Wrong” but in the sense that they were needed to happen in the past, but no longer were needed in the present. So we decided to dedicate much of our effort to the education and reformulation of our individual consciousness. We created a system that allowed the past to be remembered for eternity and never forgotten. So that no generation would forget the patterns of the old. We didn’t bog ourselves down with the times of the past, but instead learned from them as much as we could.

                The revelation of our true history awoken a renaissance unlike anything that has ever happened. The story of humanity upon Gaia touched the heart of every human being. We all banded together in order to create a more perfect union. People became motivated to find the best way to move forward. Technology was utilized at the beginning, but eventually we learned to harness the power of our consciousness. Thus, consciousness replaced technology. Technology was seen to be a separation by our people, this was very hard at first because the comfort of the individual overpowered the mass.

                The self-seeking tendencies of the people during the transformation was a huge hurdle. It took awhile for the people to see the need to remove technology in our lives as much as possible. This was done by redefining and understanding technology. Technology as was known to the 21st century was, shall we say removed and replaced with a more suited technology. This technology can be termed Consciousness Technology if one were to need to place a label upon it. We replaced much of the technologies we had with new understandings and abilities. We merely had to learn to use them.

                Much of the technology that people believed in was replaced. There still exists a few artifacts that remind us of times long ago. When we look at these things, we understand things from a whole different level. All of the past technology we had was replaced by our consciousness. We became masters of Technology by being one with the technology. This enabled us the luxury to no longer create separate forms of this being. We understood that the technology of the early days was disempowering, but alluring and seductive.

                Life is beautiful, the animals walk amongst us. The carnivores no longer eat meat. The animals absorb energy from the source. We faeries fly openly, the beings that once hid themselves from humanity walk amongst us. Beings from all across the galaxy come to earth to learn about its history. The blue gem has a special place throughout the universe. It is a love story that many cherish and hold dear.

Out of suffering have emerged the strongest Souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars. – Khalil Gibran

Although we are all born with Souls, not all of us know how to fully embody them and integrate them into our human experience.  The truth is that in our modern world, we live Ego-centrically rather than Soul-centrically.

Mystics, saints, and shamans throughout history have referred to our struggle as humans in different ways – but they all pointed to the need for us to consciously grow into our divine potential.

One of these people was Saint John of the Cross, a Spanish monk who coined the term “Dark Night of the Soul” (“Noche Oscura” the name of one of his poems) based on his own mystical experience.

These days, the concept of the Dark Night of the Soul has come to be used in a much broader way. What was once a term reserved for people actively going through a Spiritual Journey, now has come to easily label anything ranging from a few bad days and a period of depression, to the death of a loved one.

But what really is the Dark Night of the Soul?

Are You Going Through a Dark Night or Depression?

I am a forest, and a night of dark trees: but he who is not afraid of my darkness, will find banks full of roses under my cypresses.
– Friedrich Nietzsche “Thus Spoke Zarathustra

Even back in the 16th century, Saint John of the Cross himself was at great pains to distinguish the Dark Night from mere melancholia (depression).

After all, the symptoms of the Dark Night of the Soul are not that different from depression. But while depression is psychological/neurological/biological, the Dark Night heralds a deeply occurring change within known as spiritual transformation.

Here are 7 “omens” that together signify you might be going through a Dark Night of the Soul:
Remove ads on lonerwolf?

  1. You feel a deep sense of sadness, which often verges on despair (this sadness is often triggered by the state of your life, humanity, and/or the world as a whole)
  2. You feel an acute sense of unworthiness
  3. You have the constant feeling of being lost or “condemned” to a life of suffering or emptiness
  4. You possess a painful feeling of powerlessness and hopelessness
  5. Your will and self-control is weakened, making it difficult for you to act
  6. You lack interest and find no joy in things that once excited you
  7. You crave for the loss of something intangible; a longing for a distant place or to “return home” again

The ultimate difference between depression and the Dark Night of the Soul is that depression is usually self-centric, whereas the Dark Night is philosophical in nature and is accompanied by existential reflections such as “Why am I here?” and “What is my purpose?”

Also, when depression ends, not much changes in your life in terms of your beliefs, values, and habits. However, when the Dark Night of the Soul ends, everything in your life is transformed, and life becomes wondrous again.

The Necessity For Suffering

My desire to live is as intense as ever, and though my heart is broken, hearts are made to be broken: that is why God sends sorrow into the world … To me, suffering seems now a sacramental thing, that makes those whom it touches holy … any materialism in life coarsens the soul. – Oscar Wilde “Letters

Polish psychologist Kazimierz Dąbrowski coined a term Positive disintegrationwhich views tension and anxiety as necessary in the process of spiritual and psychological maturing. In other words, it is the friction within us that causes the mirror of our Souls to be polished enough for us to glimpse our True Nature.

I often hear people speak of the Dark Night as some kind problem they have to “fix,” or something they “went through a long time ago, that is now over, thank God.” But what these people thought was a Dark Night may have just been a glimpse of the darkness within them, especially when they speak egotistically about it as if it were a badge of honor.

A true Dark Night of the Soul leaves a long-lasting impact on you – it changes you completely. When you exit a Dark Night, you will discover that something is always taken away from you (for the better), such as your beliefs, your perceptions, your former meaning in life, or even in rare cases, your ego. The metaphysician Ananda Coomaraswamy put it this way, “No creature can attain a higher grade of nature without ceasing to exist.”

Have you ever seen a butterfly begin to emerge from its cocoon? It must struggle in order to strengthen its wings. If someone frees the butterfly from its cocoon prematurely, it won’t be able to fly because its crucial tempering stage will not have occurred.

The same is true for trees. Trees need wind in order build their structural strength to stay upright.

Your Dark Night of the Soul is your wind, your cocoon; it is the struggle of shedding the Ego Self in order to embody the Soul Self.

If you try to avoid the hard work of, as Ananda put it, “ceasing to exist,” or breaking down your old confining structures, you won’t have what it takes to truly embody your essential nature.

The Spiritual Awakening Process

As humans, the prospect of change is avoided and resisted because it is unknown territory. Therefore, we fear it. For this reason, we require a Spiritual Awakening.

There are three ways that Spiritual Awakenings can occur: the first is at the hands of wise Teachers, the second is through the pursuit of soulfully mature people, and the third is spontaneously due to life experience.

Spontaneous awakenings arrive in a number of ways: a terminal diagnosis, old age, a near-death experience, a physical accident, the loss of a loved one, a romantic breakup, the destruction of your home or homeland, suicidal depression, or the complete loss of your religious faith.

The Dark Night is a herald, an omen, of change. It lets us know that we can’t continue living the way we have been living. There is no growth, no awakening in life, to life, without first seeing and acknowledging our existing disappointment.

Acknowledging our disappointment means becoming aware of the deeply held sense of “incompletion” that we all carry; it means becoming aware that something is desperately missing from our lives. Those that have experienced, or are currently experiencing a Dark Night of the Soul will know that something very fundamental at a core level is out of focus or completely lacking in their lives. Those going through a Dark Night will sense that so much more is possible in their lives, even though they don’t exactly know what that “so much more” is.

One of the common reasons why Dark Nights occur and are prolonged, is due to mystical experiences, or short glimpses of the divine, which spiritual teachers often refer to as “grace” or samādhi. Soon afterwards, the person “loses” this experience, and is plunged into unhappiness again. This is called the “halo effect,” “afterglow” or what the Sufis speak of as the “sobriety of union.”

Why does the “halo effect” happen? It happens because of the stark contrast between one’s rediscovered Divine Self and the return to one’s disconnected and tormented Ego self. To the spiritually mature person, the halo effect sets the stage for a future encounter with the transcendental, with God.

However, for the less prepared seeker, the glimpse into the Divine stirs up even more distress as old habits, obsessions, thoughts, and behaviors reappear. Now, such a person realizes that he has a long, complex, and demanding task of purification and transformation ahead of him.

In Spiritual Alchemy, there is a word for this experience called “solutio”; putting all the hard stuff in the waters of reflection (your ideas, your habits, etc.), where it dissolves and breaks apart, shows itself for what it is, and gives you the opportunity for a fresh start.

The solution to one’s suffering and disconnection from the divine realm can be any method of cutting away, dislodging, disintegrating and clearing old pieces of your life so that you can begin afresh.

Essentially, the Dark night is a process of shedding away your old home and going in search of a new one. Understandably, this process requires a huge leap of faith into the unknown which can come at quite a sudden and frightening pace.

For now, here is my favorite Dark Night of the Soul quote by David Whyte who understood the value of making peace with the darkness:

…Time to go into the dark
where the night has eyes
to recognize its own.

There you can be sure
you are not beyond love.

The dark will be your womb
tonight.

The night will give you a horizon
further than you can see.

You must learn one thing.
The world was made to be free in

Give up all the other worlds
except the one to which you belong.

Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet
confinement of your aloneness
to learn

anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive

is too small for you.

– “Sweet Darkness” by David Whyte

God’s New Series – Heavenletter #6478 Rest in Me, October 21, 2018

God said:

Beloved of My heart, clear the passageways of your heart. Nothing is to get in the way of the free-flow of Our One beautiful heart. Clear the smallest blocks that get in the way of Infinite clear-seeing and clear-hearing. Let Us realize constant comfort and joy in Our Union. Oneness flows, I accept you wholeheartedly. There is no reason for dismay to cover up the Oneness of Infinity.

Seat yourself comfortably in My heart. Be at ease with Me. Be separate from tension. Do not for one moment overlook Oneness.

I welcome you, and the world welcomes you on My behalf and on behalf of Oneness. Do you stymie yourself to the extent of your own resistance to welcoming your perceived Self to life on Earth?

What within your Self do you fight? Are you not good enough for this world and above? Wake up! You are exalted to the High Heavens. Is there any other kind of Heaven but the one on High?

I exalt you. I have never not. I hasten you to My heart. Come close. Come, climb to the top of My message board. I hear you before you hear yourself. I am Yourself as you are Mine. We are not a mixed bag.

No longer think of yourself as some kind of quarry.

Safe are you with Me.

Whatever you deliberate about, let go of it. Come closer. All these worries you parade around like ponies in a circus – they are irrelevant to you. They are insignificant to the whole of life in Heaven on Earth.

When events are irrelevant to Me, they are irrelevant and unnecessary to you. Relieve yourself of these little tics that disturb you. Love My essence, for this is the same essence in which you are blessed. You are here to fill the world with essence of life all the way in excess of Heaven.

Forget the necessities of taxes and all the seeming matters that rub you the wrong way.

Be you on Earth as you are in Heaven.

I, God, penetrate your Soul. I, God in Heaven, the very God Who stands before you and leads you, I find you in Me. Why, here you are. Stay.

Do you think you are a gnat or ant on Earth and, to your mind, of no royal merit? Forget that, for any and everything on Earth has a purpose and fulfills its purpose. You appear in the world for a while. Whether you know the High Purpose of your seemingly illusive Being, deliver it. Have no concerns. I’m taking care of all life. Rest in Me.

You are not a passing fancy. You are a remarkable presence. You, the Essence of God, pass this way. Even when no one on Earth yet remains to hold conscious memory of you this time around, your mark is made. You are longed for. You are a unique quality that passes through the Earth just the way a star passed through the sky. Every single cell on Earth fulfills its purpose, and you are essential to the Light of the World. And so is everyone.

I bow to every seeming particle of life. Our Oneness is not exactly a partnership. Rather, it is a Oneness, and Oneness is far-flung, which means it is everywhere. Hearts are exponents of Oneness. Hark, the herald angels sing.

Every bird that flies and every sound and chirp are wonders of the world. The world may not be everything you want it to be, yet the world shares the firmament along with you.

Note, I do not figure out Our Oneness. Am-ness I am. Equally, you are the same Am-ness I AM. I AM is the whole story of creation as it streams along in full fiddle.

The Galactic Federation

Source: SANGIETA G HANDA

The “Galactic Federation of Light” was founded over 4.5 million years ago to prevent inter-dimensional dark forces from creating galactic wars and conquering different star systems that were dominating and exploiting our Milky Way Galaxy. The members of the Galactic Federation of Light act as Physical Angels and radiate Light and Love into areas of darkness, and oversee the evolution of all its star planetary systems in order to carry out the eventual ‘Divine Fate’ prophesied for our Milky Way Galaxy.

The Galactic Federation of Light, for our galaxy, is located on the star planetary system Sirius. And many on Earth are liaison officers or honorary members to the Galactic Federation of Light.

Millions of years ago, we became part of a vast rebellion between the Light and the dark forces in this galaxy. The uprisings began in the constellations of Lyra, Cancer, Gemini and Orion, as well as in many other lesser-known star groupings. And at the very core of this battle were the Star Leagues of the Pleiades, the Andromedan Confederation, the Lyra Light League and the Sirian star-nations. It was this rebellion that eventually led to the formation of the “Galactic Federation of Light”, some 4.5 million years ago.

However, of all the star nations in our galaxy Sirius is most sacred, the place where the sacred ‘Great Blue Lodge of the Blue-Light of Divine Creation’ has been anchored. Lord Siraya, the Carrier of God’s Blue Light to all His Mansion Worlds, chose Sirius (B) as the place to enter this galaxy and establish the ‘Great Oracle Temple’ of Blue Light of Divine Creation to illuminate the Creator’s Light to all other star systems in the Milky Way Galaxy. This sacred Blue Lodge of Sirius is defended by the race of the ‘Lion people’ who are the settlers on Sirius (A) star system. This is the race of people who descended upon Earth to create and activate the Great Pyramid of Egypt and oversaw the design and architecture of all pyramids on Earth. They were headed by the Atlantean and Egyptian High Priest from Venus – ‘Thoth’, and by the High Priestess ‘Seshat’ who is a descendent of the ‘Feline Beings’, a race also from Sirius (A). The Lion Beings live in the ‘non-physical’ reality that transcends time and space; whereas the Feline Beings are of the physical dimension and live even amongst the human race on Earth. Whilst the Lion Beings were the architect or the blueprint designers of the pyramids, the actual builders were the Feline Beings who physically constructed the Great Pyramid. This is the multi-dimensional perspective of the Great Pyramid of Egypt. Moreover, the Lion and Feline Beings are members of the Galactic Federation of Light.

At present, there are just over 200,000 members of the Galactic Federation that stem from many star nations and systems within our galaxy, as well as from other various galaxies and vast orders, confederations and unions from the Creator’s many Mansion Worlds and Universes. Of the total member species approximately 40% are humanoids and the rest are varied forms of sentient beings. However, the members of the Galactic Federation are fully awakened Beings of Light.

 


“You are not of this world. You are all extraterrestrial in nature, and have travelled some 26 Light Years to reach Earth, your present home, to bravely partake in a complicated and challenging experiment of ‘total spiritual amnesia’. Lady Gaia Earth volunteered to become a laboratory to harbour a daring ‘experiment’ and become the playground for a dangerous game from which there was no expectation of success, or even sheer survival. This experiment was labelled ’Deathwish’. And to say the least, you courageously volunteered to participate in this risky business of ‘no-returns’. We were assisting, so far, only to prevent any irreversible damage to your soul. However, you managed to astound us where we least expected! Despite the total spiritual loss of memory, which is the ‘Blueprint of Non-Remembrance’ adopted by Earth, you found the ‘doorway’ to exit from this complex, full-proof, inextricable labyrinth of sheer darkness. Consequently, we have had to change the pre-determined result of this experiment! A change we embrace and welcome with much pleasure and celebration. We indeed salute you!

“And so we have now come to give you “THE ASCENSION KEY” to open the doorwayand end this long evolutionary experiment of spiritual amnesia. Please note there are 2 Ascension Keys: one is for individual human evolution and the other is for the ascension of the planet and all its inhabitants together. This Key shall not yet be revealed. Only when the collective consciousness has reached the level of critical mass required for a shift, will the 2nd Ascension Key manifest in the hands of the most deserving soul on Earth, who then shall open the Stargate to Freedom for all.


The Golden Ascension Key

 

With the 1st Ascension Key you shall remove the ‘Adamic Curse’; a curse that has imprisoned you within the illusionary walls of division/separation/dualism/discrimination; and transmute your lower light template of Adam Man into the Higher Intelligence Template of the ‘Adam Kadmon Man’ (the original mould from which the pure man was conceived).

“We have come to “SHIFT YOUR ENERGY AND RAISE YOUR FREQUENCY”. You must insert the Ascension Key into your soul consciousness to enter the Golden Age. This Key shall open the doorway that lies within you. In order to get the outside door to open, you must first open the inner door. The Ascension Key when inserted within shall magically or alchemically change your internal landscape of individual workings and cause huge personal implosions that shall set-off a rippling effect on the physical/ psychological/ economical/and emotional richter scale. But know that you are not alone when this huge evolutionary transmutation takes place. We are here to tell you –  lean on us; you are being looked after; you are not by yourself; this is not about death but a re-birth of body and mind; do not fear nor hesitate to allow the change to take place; call out to us and know that we are here!


“We have come to re-establish the “ONE MIND”, which shall replace all divisions and separations created by religion and politics across the many cultures of Earth. We have come to end all religion that used ‘divisive deviation’ to serve The Lie! This created the patriarchal system, the racial discrimination, the gender bias, the yin-yang imbalance, which in turn served the self-ish purpose of the ‘service-to-self types’, who are the evil masterminded beings amongst you.  

“We have now come “TO REVEAL THE HIDDEN MYSTERIES OF ALL THINGS”. To start with you must know the sum of 1+1 does not equal to 2, but totals to a 0 (zero).  This is the unifying of the ‘Yin-Yang’ energy through an inner synthesis. Here we reveal to you the ‘ancient hidden mystery’ that became ‘The Secret’ when buried by Thoth at the end times of the Ancient Egyptian Civilization. This Secret was taught by Thoth and Seshat in the ‘Ancient Mystery School’ of Khem.  It is the alchemical breaking of the ‘Cosmic Egg’.

The Ancient Mystery School of Egypt


“Based upon the theory that ‘yang’ or electro-energy is the positive polarity, or the (+) Plus Time, and the ‘yin’ or magnetic-energy is the negative charge, the (-) Minus Time. You are at present living in the Patriarchal Era of yang domination, in other words, moving forward with the yang flow of + Time, that moves in the direction of East to West. Now for the yin-yang unity to take place, you must start by moving backwards, in the reverse direction, into the – Time flow of yin energy that flows from North to South. As the yin energy of the –Time clashes against the forward flux of the yang energy of + Time a collision of energy particles take place. This is the ‘Shiva Dance of Destruction’, wherein, the positive battles with the negative destroying in its path the existence of all polarity or duality, forever. This colossal explosion will finally come to a rest at a point of perfect balance when the (+) positive and the (-) negative conjoin to make a whole = 0. Therefore, a +1-1=0. In other words, when the yin energy intersects the yang energy at a ‘cross’ (+), it then folds into the ‘cube’ (0) crossing out all duality forever.

“This is the hidden meaning behind the Da Vinci Code. This is the Zero-Point of all creation. This is the breaking of the Cosmic Egg, the alchemical transmutation that takes place within one self, transporting one into the cosmic core of the “I AM”, the “ONE”. This mutative Shiva Dance of Destruction is what opens the ‘Third-Eye’, the ‘Singular Eye’, or the ‘Cosmic Eye of God’.

“Holding steady at the Zero-Point of perfect equilibrium awakens the Kundalini which then begins to rise from the first chakra up through the chakric column pushing then outward at the Third-Eye center, which in turn impels the Spiritual Eye to burst open, effecting rapidly thereafter the total awakening to complete ‘Enlightenment’.

“This is how, by inserting the Ascension Key within your soul space, you can open the inner door and enter the New Golden Age. The Ascension Key is symbolically represented as the ‘Egyptian Ankh’ that breaks the cosmic egg, and ushers in the “New Age”. This is the right understanding of the ‘SECOND COMING OF CHRIST’. Please understand Christ is ‘Christ Consciousness’, which is the 33rd degree frequency of Light energy. The ‘Second Coming Of Christ’ is your returning to the Light once again, by ending all duality/polarity/separation/and divisions, through the unifying of the Yin-Yang/ God-Goddess Energy of the Light within.

The fusion of the Yin & Yang Energies

“We are here to “RE-ESTABLISH TRUE-LOVE”. It is at this moment of fusion of the yin-yang energies when the union of Twin-Rays, on Earth, shall take place. This coming together of Cosmic Lovers shall edit the old version of love (the doubting Thomas) and re-boot the human pattern of love, establishing the eternal concept of True-Love. The sacred love and sacred sex shared between Twin-Rays shall not only booster their evolution but create a chain-effect that shall amplify and farther spread the Light of Love.

“We have now thereby come into your midst to create the “NEW HEAVEN ON NEW EARTH”As it was in the beginning, is now, and shall ever be! Thy Kingdom come, Thy shall be done on Earth as it is in Heaven! As Above so Below! This ‘New Earth’, or ‘New Age’, is not a religion but a ‘New Politics’ based upon the concept of ‘Governmental Excellence of United Nations’.

“We are here to promote your status from a ” ‘ HUMAN BEING ’ (Homo Sapien) TO A‘GALACTIC BEING’ (Homo Galacticus).

“We are here to now prepare for the birth, or the coming of “THE NEW LOGOS” for the New Earth. The ‘New Buddha’ shall take birth through a galactic being, already on Earth, when she shall unite with her Cosmic Lover. The three galactic beings shall then fulfil the already prophesied destiny of Earth – “Three people shall travel to Egypt, in the near future, the newly born Son of Light shall behold the Golden Key (the 2nd Ascension Key) that unlocks the hidden door to a secret chamber in the Great Pyramid of Egypt, and end forever this experiment of darkness on Earth! And then there shall be Light!” Scribed within this chamber are already the names of these three beings.
The opening of the Great Pyramid of Egypt
“Once the Stargate has been opened (by 2012 approx.), the Earth shall be freed from the Law of Gravity and begin to shift out of its axis. The Earth and the human race shall shift together. Mankind will be beamed up into spacecrafts and motherships immediately.

“The human race shall then enter the “COSMIC CLOCK” where all exists in the ‘Now’. At the same time, Earth shall be taken away to a safe place, a separate hangar, for its re-structuring and transmutation into the New Earth.

“You shall move closer to “SIRIUS”, and take your place in its multi-star planetary system. By 2013, you shall join the “LION BEINGS” and “FELINE BEINGS” of Sirius (A)and other humanoid Galactic Beings on Sirius ‘B’ & ‘C’.

“By then life on Mars and Venus shall re-emerge. Maldek too shall re-invent itself. And the Moon shall be the ‘space-station’ for the New Earth.

“You shall then become “FULL MEMBERS OF THE GALACTIC FEDERATION OF LIGHT” and meet your galactic family and enter your inter-dimensional reality.

“The Master in-charge of overseeing the successful completion of this experiment and its transformation into the New Energy is the “ASCENDED MASTER SAINT GERMAIN”, the Hierarch of the New Earth.
Ascended Master Saint Germain
“And finally, we are here to help Mother Earth keep her “APPOINTMENT WITH DESTINY”. It has been prophesied; ”when Earth successfully completes her blueprint she shall inherit the greatest Galactic Civilization!” This Civilization is YOU – the Galactic Society, that shall bring about the end of all galactic wars in the Milky Way and establish peace and unity. You are the Souls of great Beings of Light from far in the galaxy. You have now reached the end of the most challenging and grand ‘genetic experiment’ on Earth, and have survived! We stand in proud appreciation, awaiting your splendid arrival, with badges and trophies to salute you on your unparalled and unwavering courage, bravery, and determination. All of that which has influenced your astounding victory into eternal freedom. We are all so very proud of YOU! You are already walking the Red Carpet; this is your “LAST WALK HOME, ALONE”. Alone it may seem; long it may feel; but nay, we are waiting across the Rainbow Bridge, enthusiastically applauding you. Walk, and do not look back!
The Cosmic Walk back Home

“Keep that speech ready, however long you wish it to be, no bell shall resound to edit your voice, as your Voice is needed to be heard as the “GALACTIC TEACHERS”. You are the finest example to have survived the experiment so doomed to self-destruct right from its conception. You shall impart your experiences and offer your teachings to the star-planetary systems of the lower light. The New Earth shall become the most popular meeting place for the entire Milky Way Galaxy, and YOU, shall behold the Highest Intelligence of Wisdom ever acquired through the toughest tests of time and space. YOU shall be the deserving creators of New Heaven on many Earths, because you have lived the Dream. Lived and worked, and survived, the Dream!

“We await You! We Salute You! We Honour you! We Welcome You back Home!

“We now take our leave and bless you. Blessings, dear Ones: go inside and bring forth your great energies and intentions. Use them with our divine assistance to bring forth a full consciousness and a new golden reality.

”AMEN! SELAMAT JA! (Be in Joy)”

True Revolution is a Transformation in Human Consciousness

Source: The Mind Unleashed

A radical change in human behavior away from its patterns of oppression, exploitation, war and ecocide will necessarily involve a drastic transformation in humanity’s relationship with thought. I’ve been saying this over and over again in different ways for a long time now, and yet I still get criticisms saying that I have useful insights but I don’t provide any plan of action.

The transformation in human consciousness is the plan of action. I really don’t know how to say it any clearer than that. And I will go so far as to say that that it is the only plan of action which will pull us out of our destructive patterns and into a healthy state of collaboration with each other and with our ecosystem. Unless we radically change the way we function above the neck, we will keep killing, consuming and destroying like a bunch of mindless automatons until everything is dead. I really don’t see any other way out of this.

I understand the criticism, though. When people read about the problem of capitalist ecocide and oligarchic strangulation, they don’t want to hear a bunch of stuff about mass ego death and spiritual enlightenment, they want to hear about nationwide demonstrations or organizing the working class or forming a new political party or cryptocurrencies or ending the Federal Reserve, or something along those lines depending on where they believe the problem is localized. In general, they want a fairy tale about people coming together to effect drastic, sweeping changes and turn the status quo on its head, which they will do because something something reasons, cough cough.

Seriously, why do people think revolution happens? Why do they believe their ideas have a chance of winning out over the existing paradigm? There are many who espouse dissident opinions more as a sort of ideological fashion statement than because they actually want to change the world, but presumably a lot of the people promoting Marxism, libertarianism, anarchism etc are doing so because they genuinely would like to see a world in which the status quo is overturned and replaced with something more wholesome. But why would that happen? Why would millions or billions of people overturn existing power structures and replace the current system with something drastically different in a world where plutocrats buy up massive amounts of media influence to convince everyone to keep everything the same?

It doesn’t seem like many proponents of revolution and change have really thought about this very much. They have a good idea, and they can envision a world in which that idea is implemented, but getting from the idea to its manifestation seems like it’s often a jumbled mess in a lot of dissidents’ minds, not unlike the “Phase 1: Collect underpants / Phase 2: ??? / Phase 3: Profit” model of the Underpants Gnomes from South Park. Most dissident voices I see are primarily interested in Phase 1, and to a much lesser extent in Phase 3. Phase 2 is what I’m interested in, and in my opinion it necessarily involves a drastic shift in human consciousness.

People are not going to deviate from their patterns and suddenly begin shrugging off ruling power structures for no reason. Revolutions historically happen for one of two reasons: (1) things get sufficiently bad to make people lash out against their government out of sheer desperation, and/or (2) people are manipulated into revolting by other powerful forces. Historically neither of these things ever lead to the creation of a stable, beneficent government that takes good care of its citizens or the world, so neither will be sufficient for creating a world in which humanity takes good care of itself and its environment, and even if that were not the case it’s unlikely that either will ever be allowed to occur by an establishment so powerful and skillful at manipulation as the US-centralized empire.

So if there is to be a people’s revolution which is effective in both (A) removing our oligarchic oppressors from power and (B) leading to the creation of a healthy, harmonious new paradigm, it will necessarily come from a place that is historically unprecedented. It will involve people rising up against existing power structures not because things got so bad they had no choice, nor because they were manipulated into it by other rival power structures, but because people realized collectively that it is in their best interests to do so.

This would require a level of wisdom and insight that the majority of human beings simply do not possess right now. Right now, most people are very easily manipulated into advancing establishment interests by plutocrat-controlled media, and until that changes there will never be an effective and beneficial revolution. For that to change, humanity is going to have to shed its ubiquitous habit of creating mental egoic patterns which make us susceptible to manipulation via fear, greed, and herd mentality.

How Humanity Could Become Impossible To Propagandize

I’ve been writing a lot about how the ability to control public narratives is the only real power in this world, and how the need of the…

medium.com

This doesn’t mean that the existing systems of capitalism and government aren’t going to have to change; of course they’ll have to change. But they’re not going to change unless we find a way to wake up from the deeply conditioned egoic patterns which are the norm in the world we were born into. We’ll keep repeating and repeating the same old patterns in whatever way we’ve been conditioned to until we either go the way of the dinosaur or find a way to transcend our conditioning.

So yes, true revolution means abandoning the insane strategy of endless economic expansion in a world made up of finite space and resources, but it also means seeing through the illusory nature of our sense of self and ceasing to believe the babbling mental narratives which are premised upon it. Yes, true revolution means ceasing the worldwide frantic, futile scramble to do what ever it takes in order to get the right kind of numbers in our bank account so we don’t starve to death in an arbitrary economic system based on imaginary bureaucratic fiat, but it also means bringing our unconscious coping mechanisms into consciousness and healing our childhood traumas. Yes, true revolution means organizing and engaging in politics and creating new systems together, but it also means learning to really love the most tender, guarded parts of ourselves which we used to leave unattended running on autopilot in our subconscious mental processes.

I firmly believe that we are capable of such a collective awakening, and there are experts in the field of inner transformation who claim to have observed signs that such an awakening may be underway. Teachers like Eckhart TolleAdyashanti and Jac O’Keefe all say something is very different in their field of work, and individuals are now having an easier time awakening from egoic consciousness than they used to. Spontaneous shifts are becoming commonplace to the point where teachers like Tony Parsons now center their entire body of teaching around the possibility of snapping out of one’s old perceptual frame of reference without engaging in any spiritual practices at all.

How To Wake Up

“I’ve been putting off writing this article all year, but readers keep asking for it, and since I’ve been writing about mass enlightenment a lot lately I figure I might as well slip it in now.” https://medium.com/@caityjohnstone/how-to-wake-up-f49cfa6266af 

How To Wake Up – Caitlin Johnstone – Medium

I’ve been putting off writing this article all year, but readers keep asking for it, and since I’ve been writing about mass enlightenment…

medium.com

Of this potential for large scale awakening, Tolle says the following:

“I see signs that it is already happening. For the first time there is a large scale awakening on our planet. Why now? Because if there is no change in human consciousness now, we will destroy ourselves and perhaps the planet. The insanity of the collective egoic mind, amplified by science and technology, is rapidly taking our species to the brink of disaster. Evolve or die: that is our only choice now. Without considering the Eastern world, my estimate is that at this time about ten percent of people in North America are already awakening. That makes thirty million Americans alone, and in addition to those people in other North American countries, about ten percent of the population of Western European countries are also awakening. This is probably enough of a critical mass to bring about a new earth. So the transformation of consciousness is truly happening even though they won’t be reporting it on tonight’s news. Is it happening fast enough? I am hopeful about humanity’s future, much more so now than when I wrote The Power of Now. In fact that is why I wrote that book. I really wasn’t sure that humanity was going to survive. Now I feel differently. I see many reasons to be hopeful.”

There aren’t many people who’d be in a position to say if human consciousness has been making a marked shift over the last few years, but Tolle, who interfaces with that information constantly as an essential part of his work as a spiritual teacher, is certainly one of them.

So there are reasons to believe it is possible for us to pull up from our omnicidal, ecocidal, exploitative trajectory and create something new together. We may pass this test yet. But even if I’m wrong about that, what the hell else are we going to do? What better chance do we have, and what more productive way is there to spend one’s time on this earth than coming to a deep and abiding insight into your true nature? From my point of view, the front lines of the revolution are in our own consciousness here and now, not as some intriguing marginal facet of the battle for humanity, but as its source, its heart, and its apex.

Know thyself, oh rebel. Know thyself and save the world.

Spiritless Humans

Source: Montalk

Empty people. Puppet people. Cardboard cutouts. Drones. Organic Portals. Background characters. Why do these terms even exist? Because out of necessity they had to be invented by those who independently noticed the same puzzling phenomenon, one for which there is no official name: some people seem to be missing something very important inside. While they are not necessarily any less intelligent, successful, or physically healthy as anyone else, they nevertheless show no indication of having any higher components to their consciousness.

Over the years I have received emails from readers who came to this same conclusion. They noticed that some people were strangely one dimensional and hollow inside. This observation is not hard to miss, but it is easy to rationalize away, especially with modern society being so heavily brainwashed with the politically correct but unrealistic concept that everyone is completely equal in every way, which ignores functional differences due to environmental, genetic, and most importantly, metaphysical factors.

Background

The idea of empty people first dawned on me in 1999 after having done much research into sociopaths and psychopaths, their condition being medically known as APD or “Antisocial Personality Disorder.” My interest in the subject grew out of having been forced for many years to suffer under someone whom I later learned had all the signs of being a sociopath. Heartless and soulless were descriptive terms, but little did I know just how literally true they were. I had noticed in this person an emptiness behind the eyes and a very shallow conscious essence, which seemed to be at the root of the behaviors I observed.

Eventually I realized that this same root condition was present in some others who were not outwardly sociopathic, but whose lack of heart was masked by a well-adapted social exterior. In other words, what psychiatry would diagnose as APD was only the more extreme, criminal, sloppy manifestation of a condition that otherwise expressed itself more widely in a socially acceptable and less incriminating manner. The latter is what may account for the body of empty people present in the population.

But what exactly is missing in them? The answer is clear if we look at their common behaviors and qualities of consciousness.

Behavioral and Psychic Characteristics

Their behavior tends toward being glib, shallow, egotistical, narcissistic, mundane, predatory, and materialistic. Sometimes these traits are camouflaged by a polished social exterior, but anyone with a discerning eye can see through the disguise. They lack individuality, independent thinking, and are strongly biased toward holding a herd mentality. They lack comprehension of anything beyond the material sphere of the five senses, and have no interest in such metaphysical matters except as flashy accessories to boost their social image. They also appear entirely incapable of empathy, soul-searching, and willful self-sacrifice. Nevertheless, in the presence of others they can put on a flashy show of concern, distress, or altruism for purposes of social manipulation; for example, crocodile tears to elicit sympathy, or doing something nice for another solely to guilt trip them later and extort a favor.

Psychically scanning their consciousness reveals something interesting. There is a certain simplicity, flatness, and inertness to their essence, even if their intellects are highly developed. Unlike other people, their conscious energy is more diffuse, dull, impermanent, and amorphous rather than solid, sparkling, crystallized, and concentrated. Put another way, their minds are like sand castles instead of real castles. There is something animalistic and rudimentary piloting their bodies. It seems they have conscious awareness just as plants and animals do, but not conscious self-awareness as humans are supposed to have. There is an important difference between awareness and self-awareness.

Spirit: The Missing Component

The missing factor must be something that endows a being with self-awareness, volition, and the capacity to value transcendental ideals. This goes beyond mere physical factors like missing portions of the brain, defective genetics, or a poor upbringing, because the latter are just defects in the hardware and programming of the biological machine, whereas the problem here involves the consciousness operating the machine. What intuitive or clairvoyant perception picks up about their consciousness involves metaphysical factors instead.

What to call this higher component of consciousness absent in some people? Usually it would be called the soul, but that has caused too much confusion in the past. For example, casual readers unfamiliar with the proper definition of “soulless” thought it meant “completely devoid of consciousness” when in reality it meant “devoid of individualized consciousness.” No, they do have some kind of soul energy by virtue of being alive, but the soul is not imbued with a higher spark of true sentience and self-awareness.

Therefore I will call this higher spark “spirit” and define it as follows: spirit is the core of individualized consciousness, that permanent aspect of one’s being representing the true Self, which accumulates experiences and spiritual wisdom throughout life, survives physical death, and remains intact upon reincarnating to continue growing toward the fulfillment of its potential. It is the divine god-spark, the seat of freewill, the holographic fragment of the Creator residing at the very center of your being, the “I” that is you, the inner conscious observer capable of observing even its own self-observation.

It seems not all humans have spirit. Therefore they have no self-awareness, individuality, wisdom, empathy, creative intelligence, or conscience. What further confirms this hypothesis is that, as will be discussed below, one may observe a total absence of destiny, synchronicity, symbolic dreams, spiritual lessons, soul growth, and karma in their lives. This is to be expected if they have nothing permanent in them that survives death and reincarnates, because only spirit can gain from such things. Without spirit, they are temporary beings whose awareness forms shortly before birth and dissolves shortly after death. And if so, then for them, spiritual life lessons serve no purpose, karma from past lives does not exist, there is no higher Self acting as chaperone, nor would they have genuine interest in anything that serves a purpose beyond their current mortal existence. Therefore it is to be expected that they be particularly materialistic, worldly, and mundane in their ambitions; observation confirms this as well.

Other Components

How can we better understand all this? By understanding the various components and how they combine to make the whole of a being, we can grasp the numerous differences and similarities between spirited and spiritless humans1.

Aside from spirit, the other components are body and soul. Soul is the nonphysical energetic interface between body and spirit. Occultists divide the soul into the etheric and astral bodies. The aforementioned “empty” people have bodies and souls, but not spirits. In this way it is clear that they have some kind of conscious energy, but not the permanent core that retains continuity through incarnations.

The soul consists of two components, the etheric and astral. The etheric component is a quantum biasing field that keeps the physical body from entropic disintegration. Or to put it more simply, it is life-force energy that keeps the body from decaying. The astral component is more abstract and intangible. It functions as the seat of consciously experienced feelings and passions. Feelings are not just chemical reactions in the brain, nor are they abstract thoughts in the mind. Rather they are vivid energies residing somewhere in between, and that buffer zone between the completely physical and completely metaphysical is the astral component of the soul.

Body and Ego

The body is the biological instrument through which we interact with our physical environment. The body comes with its own hereditary dispositions, biological drives and instincts, and behavioral algorithms stamped into it through social programming. These deterministic influences converge to create an artificial intelligence in a person that, by default, runs the body like an autopilot computer running an airplane.

This artificial intelligence is hereby termed “ego.” Its fundamental purpose is to ensure survival of the body by optimizing its behavior for the surrounding physical and social environment. In other words, external conditioning programs the ego to achieve survival in the environment from which that conditioning originates.

But the ego has no true consciousness of its own. It is just a computer running on neural (and by proxy, etheric) hardware that simulates a living identity. Its main advantage is that, being just a computer, it only has to mechanically calculate and react to situations instead of deeply and consciously reflecting, therefore it can respond much quicker to external situations.

For the spirit, the ego functions as a software device that automates interactions with other humans and provides a mask of identity, programmed from birth, appropriate to the local environment. Somewhat like a player’s avatar in the Sims game, which looks and acts like a person and seems to do its own thing when not directed by the player.

The problem is that the ego is entirely a product of the past, and spirit entirely outside linear time. The first is completely deterministic, the second is completely nondeterministic. The first is an emergent property of matter, the second a permanent condensation of consciousness. The two have impulses that are often diametrically opposed, one pulling toward materiality, the other toward spirituality. Our daily consciousness, also known as the lower self, is a blending of both, namely the portion of spirit that shines through the mask of ego and identifies with it, analogous to a driver so absorbed in the act of driving that for him the car has become an extension of his body2.

Physical or Spiritual Influences Upon the Soul

Now the soul, in residing between body and spirit and mediating between them, is influenced by both. It takes on its organization and function according to impulses from both spirit and the body. For instance, the astral body would respond both to a chemical drug inducing a feeling of euphoria through the body, and the spirit volitionally invoking a lofty feeling of spiritual joy, although the effects on the astral are not identical.

Likewise, the etheric body could have its structure altered by some injury to the physical body, or from some blockage or abnormality in the astral body percolating its influence down to the etheric level. Whatever influences are exerted upon the soul by body and spirit, their effects continue to linger in the soul, like tea continuing to circulate after having been stirred. This is why I said the ego runs on both neural and etheric hardware. Despite originating in the physical, the ego imparts the momentum of its conditioning upon the etheric3.

Consequences of Lacking a Spirit

With the preceding in mind, consider what happens when someone has body, ego, and soul, but lacks spirit. First and foremost, their entire makeup would be the result of material influences like genetics and environment. The seat of their apparent intelligence would be the ego. And without the counterweight of spirit, their ego would reign king. Thus, in accordance with the function of ego, such people would be completely dedicated to material and social survival.

Notice that people with spirit who are awake to their spiritual impulses often make willful choices that serve no financial, social, or egotistic gains, that go against the expectations of Darwinian evolutionary principles, and that serve only spiritual ends. Such impulses are absent in spiritless people, thus they are truly optimized for survival in the physical world. Without conscience, empathy, or inner battle between ego and spirit holding them back, they can more quickly and easily succeed in their worldly environments regardless of the cost to others.

To better understand their metaphysical differences, consider what happens to spirited and spiritless people upon physical death.

Spirit and soul nested one inside the other, together leave the physical body. After a while, the etheric component of the soul disintegrates, leaving only spirit nested inside the astral body. The astral body then also disintegrates. The disintegration of etheric and astral bodies, meaning the dissolution or casting away of the soul, is known in Christian Esotericism as the second death4. The liberated spirit then advances into the afterlife before reincarnating.

Reincarnation involves the spirit forming around itself a new soul and then slipping into a new physical body. In sequential reincarnations, what talents, predispositions, and imbalances it has acquired from previous lifetimes influences the new incarnation.

In the case of spiritless people, life begins as follows. As the fetal body gestates in the womb, the soul forms for the first time, like beach sand being gathered into the shape of a castle, and joins to the body. This combination produces rudimentary awareness. After being born, such a person becomes nothing more than a product of genetics and environment due to absence of spirit. Without a spiritual counterweight, biological drives and social programming become their primary impulses in life.

Upon physical death their soul evacuates the body, perhaps containing a lingering imprint of the ego, and after some time it disintegrates and is reabsorbed into the lake of energies from which it originally formed. Nothing of their identity survives. For people without spirit, this life is their only one. They form upon entering and dissolve upon leaving. It cannot be otherwise if they lack a core of individualized consciousness.

Thus everything that a spirited person has due to the continuity of his or her incarnations, is missing in the life of a spiritless person. For example, the spiritless would have no need for life lessons or spiritual learning experiences. What would be the purpose if whatever is gained disappears after death? Therefore spiritless people are ones who cannot learn spiritual lessons, who cannot profit spiritually from the trials of life, who cannot pass what is gained onto their successive incarnations. And so they have no concern for lessons of humility, empathy, compassion, understanding, or forgiveness. Instead of changing as people through spiritual maturation in life, they only change in the sense of better adapting to life through conditioning. For instance, whereas a spirited person may see the error of his ways and grow humble, a spiritless person would simply learn to not get caught next time.

Karma is another metaphysical factor absent in the life of spiritless people. There are many misconceptions about karma, so I will first explain my understanding of it, before showing how its absence affects the life of a spiritless person.

Karma (the negative type) is simply a spiritual debt or imbalance acquired upon violating the freewill of oneself or another. Violating your own freewill happens when you make a choice during an ignorant state, like when identifying with the ego and acting upon its impulses, that violates a choice made during a more spiritually sober state.

Upon committing a freewill violation, the higher spirit-associated aspect of consciousness regrets the error and makes a commitment to redress it, even if the lower ego-associated aspect tries to ignore this. The karmic imbalance then attracts experiences that teach a lesson correcting that ignorance, whether in this life or the next. The lesson learned is universal and does not require memory of the original choice that provoked it, just understanding of the lesson. The karmic experience itself is not what is fated, rather the lesson learned, therefore karma can sometimes be mitigated through pre-emptive understanding and forgiveness without necessarily needing to learn it the hard way through experience.

But without spirit, there is no true freewill and no true lessons that can be learned. Therefore the spiritless have no karma and instead live completely under the laws of chance and the law of the jungle. Whereas a spirited individual might be born with karmic handicaps, for the spiritless these handicaps would strictly be a matter of chance or heredity and serve no higher metaphysical purpose. Same with the timing and manner of their death; whereas spirited people may have loosely planned out their life before incarnating, including the way they will die, spiritless people die according to random circumstances without purpose or meaning, unless their death somehow plays an important part in the pre-incarnation script of a spirited individual.

Other missing factors include meaningful symbolic dreams, synchronicities, higher intuitive guidance, and their personal hand of destiny. Spiritless people experience none of these because they neither can nor need to. This should be obvious from understanding the role of spirit, but I will elaborate for the sake of clarity.

Meaningful dreams primarily serve to alert a person to spiritual imbalances that need to be corrected, but a spiritless person has no need for such messages. They also have nothing higher to send such messages. Without a permanent core of individuality, they have no “Higher Self”, which is the perfected future manifestation of spirit reaching back through time to help out extensions of itself still in the linear past. And without a Higher Self, they have no inner intuitive guidance to provide certain nudges and protection in life. Thus, whereas a spirited person might experience freak synchronicities and bending of the laws of reality to save them from untimely death, a spiritless person lacking such direction and protection would perish according to chance.

Chakra Differences between Spirited and the Spiritless

There is also a difference between spirited and spiritless in what chakras they have. Chakras are vortical energy centers linking soul with body, and linking spirit and body through the soul. Each center coincides positionally with the major glands of the physical body, and each serves a different behavioral function.

The lower chakras are associated with such behavioral facets as physical instinct, sexual impulses, base emotions, personal power, and intellectual activity. Everyone possesses these. The spiritless, however, have no need for the higher chakras, namely the heart, crown, and third eye chakras because these are the ones that exclusively link to spirit.

The heart chakra, the center of higher emotions like compassion, empathy, spiritual jubilance, is missing in the spiritless because there is no spirit present to associate with these emotions. The crown chakra, through which higher intuitive understanding, originality and creativity, and a connection with objective truth manifests, is likewise missing. The third eye chakra, located between the brows, is normally used for the perception of phenomena and concepts beyond the material realm, and spiritless people confined to the world of the five senses have no need for it either.

Consequently, another difference between the spirited and spiritless is that the first have all seven chakras while the latter are missing the three higher ones, the heart, crown, and third eye chakras5. This further contributes to the intuitive or clairvoyant perception that spiritless people are flat and inert inside regardless of how animated they are on the outside, because the spectrum of their etheric or auric vibrations are missing certain colors and are therefore of a lower overall resolution.

All the above follows from one simple postulate: that some people lack spirit, and that they therefore also lack the higher chakras. If you deeply contemplate what this entails, you will understand how this postulate explains the full gamut of observations we have concerning so-called “empty” people.

Difference between Spiritless and Spiritually Asleep People

At this point you might be wondering what is the difference between spiritless people, and spirited ones who are spiritually asleep in life or simply immature. After all, both may be worldly in their goals and thoroughly caught up in the illusion of the “Matrix.” Both may not be cognizant of dreams or synchronicities, nor display much empathy. For example, there are negative people who are completely under the influence of their egos and external negative forces, who can commit violent crimes and even mass murder without blinking an eye. Not all of them are spiritless. But all of them are indeed void of the influence of spirit when it comes to engaging in such inhuman behaviors. Some lack spirit, others are asleep to spirit.

The difference is that a spirited but infantile/asleep person still has latent spiritual potential. So they still have, even in small amounts, the presence of those spiritual factors and dynamics mentioned above. They may still suffer the consequences of karmic debt brought on by dumb choices, they may still receive symbolic dreams attempting to alert them to spiritual imbalances in life even if they ignore it, they may still experience synchronistic help in shaping their lives against the odds even if they cannot see it.

Spiritless people lack that potential completely. They cannot grow spiritually. This is not a theoretical declaration, but a painful lesson learned from having dealt with too many such persons who never showed any signs of growth or evolution no matter how much help and opportunity for improvement was given to them. At best they adapt, but more out of conditioning and calculation than actual understanding.

There is another important difference. The spirited have lives appropriate to their spiritual needs. So there is a correspondence between their spiritual maturity and type of life. Infant spirits will lead crude lives, because a basic existence is all they need, and anything more would be too much for them to handle or gain from. Meanwhile, the spiritless live whatever life they are driven into by circumstance and their own cunning, which can mean being a beggar, corporate executive, or famous author all the same. Without constraints established by spiritual needs, the spiritless have no spiritual limits or curriculums structuring their lives. And this is why “empty” people are not all just spiritually asleep or infantile, because there exists a class of people who share the same inertness behind their eyes regardless of their type of life, their social standing, their intellectual prowess, and their physical appearance.

Psychopaths, Sociopaths, and Narcissists

The more extreme manifestations of an absence of spirit is known in psychology as psychopathic, sociopathic, or narcissistic personality disorders. Spirited people who fit this condition are misguided and held hostage by their egos, but they can be rehabilitated. Instead of lacking empathy, their empathy is either suppressed or displaced. These are not true psychopaths, but spirited people with personality disorders.

True psychopathy and sociopathy, however, cannot be cured because something is fundamentally flawed at the core of such persons. They lack empathy and remorse altogether, and these qualities cannot be recovered because they were never there to begin with. The incurable nature of psychopathy is an accepted fact in psychology. The cause is believed to be an abnormality in the pain and fear centers of the brain. Even so, without the balancing influence of spirit, such abnormalities would introduce unchecked errors into the programming of the ego, which then runs rampant to the point of coming to the attention of the legal and medical systems. What the medical system can diagnose is only the extreme and sloppy manifestation of a condition that is more widespread throughout the population. Other spiritless people with properly functioning egos are better at keeping their lack of empathy and remorse camouflaged under more refined social programming.

Why Spiritless? What Others Say

Theories abound about why some people lack a higher component to their consciousness and what purpose they serve in the bigger scheme of things. Since I am not the first to make this observation, I will now briefly discuss what others have said so that you can weigh the available options.

John Baines writes in his book The Stellar Man that humans, like all animal species, have a collective soul unique to their species. This collective unconscious exerts a de-individualizing influence on humans, nudging them toward mob mentality, herd mentality, and following the crowd. Rupert Sheldrake would call this the human morphogenetic field. People who have not developed their own conscious individuality are mere automatons following the soporific influence of the collective unconscious, as though they were extensions of a hive mind. The goal of esoteric training is to split away from the herd, to develop one’s own volition and thereby become a free being.

Rudolf Steiner voiced similar sentiments. His foundational work, The Philosophy of Freedom addressed this problem. Steiner said that as long as humans obey external authority, their own biological instincts, or the animalistic parts of themselves in common with the rest of humanity, they are not free beings. Freedom comes from choosing based on intuitive understanding of what each option entails and what it means. This act of freewill requires introspection and spiritual acumen to act from a place of true understanding. Steiner acknowledged that not everyone introspects to the degree necessary to make intelligent freewill choices. In private discussions, Steiner went even further:

Dr. Steiner: That little girl L.K. in the first grade must have something really very wrong inside. There is not much we can do. Such cases are increasing in which children are born with a human form, but are not really human beings in relation to their highest I; instead, they are filled with beings that do not belong to the human class. Quite a number of people have been born since the nineties without an I, that is, they are not reincarnated, but are human forms filled with a sort of natural demon. There are quite a large number of older people going around who are actually not human beings, but are only natural; they are human beings only in regard to their form. We cannot, however, create a school for demons.

A teacher: How is that possible?

Dr. Steiner: Cosmic error is certainly not impossible. The relationships of individuals coming into earthly existence have long been determined. There are also generations in which individuals have no desire to come into earthly existence and be connected with physicality, or immediately leave at the very beginning. In such cases, other beings that are not quite suited step in. This is something that is now quite common, that human beings go around without an I; they are actually not human beings, but have only a human form. They are beings like nature spirits, which we do not recognize as such because they go around in a human form. They are also quite different from human beings in regard to everything spiritual. They can, for example, never remember such things as sentences; they have a memory only for words, not for sentences.

The riddle of life is not so simple. When such a being dies, it returns to nature from which it came. The corpse decays, but there is no real dissolution of the etheric body, and the natural being returns to nature. It is also possible that something like an automaton could occur. The entire human organism exists, and it might be possible to automate the brain and develop a kind of pseudomorality.

I do not like to talk about such things since we have often been attacked even without them. Imagine what people would say if they heard that we say there are people who are not human beings. Nevertheless, these are facts. Our culture would not be in such a decline if people felt more strongly that a number of people are going around who, because they are completely ruthless, have become something that is not human, but instead are demons in human form.

(Faculty Meetings With Rudolf Steiner Vol. 2, 3 July 1923, p. 649-650)

G. I. Gurdjieff spoke along the same lines. His lectures in Views from the Real World summarize his position. Humans are born as blank slates, as biological machines without self-awareness. At some point in life, a person either develops an “I” or branches onto the opposite path toward further mechanization and decay. So according to Gurdjieff, “empty” people are those who have never developed their self-awareness as they should have, but we all start out on equal footing. I don’t believe this to be true because there are infants and children who clearly have high sentience behind their eyes and expected behaviors of self-awareness, while other infants and children lack it, which suggests the factor of reincarnation in some people and complete absence of spirit including the potential for spirit in other people.

Boris Mouravieff has written on the subject of spiritless people most extensively. See his three volumes of the Gnosis series, particularly the second and third volumes. His approach is based on Esoteric Christianity, and thus it quotes heavily from scripture while bearing much in common with the Fourth Way tradition of Gurdjieff, which itself seems to trace back to Sufistic teachings. According to Mouravieff’s interpretation of the Book of Genesis, there existed humans before Adam and Eve, but that only Adam and by proxy Eve and her descendants received the breath of spirit from God. Thus nowadays there exists two mingling sub-races of humans, the pre-Adamics without spirit, and the Adamics who have it. Mouravieff explains that pre-Adamics serve the purpose of harvesting energy from Adamics as part of the cosmic food chain. He also explores the metaphysical differences between the two, in regards to pre-Adamics missing certain “centers”, which are analogous to chakras. Mouravieff believes the pre-Adamics have a group soul unique to their collective, and that only after further aeons of evolution will their collective soul differentiate into individual spirits like what the Adamics already have.

The Corpus Hermeticum, a famous hermetic and gnostic text written almost two thousand years ago, likewise states that not all humans have the spark of divine reason (termed Nous) active within them, and that without Nous a human is more like an “irrational creature” (animal) in his motivations, limited perception, and way of life. One would have to read the entire text to understand this in proper context. See the english translation titled The Way of Hermes: New Translations of the Corpus Hermeticum (Inner Traditions, 2000).

Lastly, the Cassiopaean Transcripts addresses the works of Mouravieff and provides some key insights on the matter at hand. The channelling source claims that some people are empty portals for other intelligences to work through, that they have uniform auras among them, lack the higher chakras, can be very skilled at mimicking “souled” (spirited) people by reflecting back their own soul energy, and that ultimately they serve as conduits from which our energy can be siphoned for collection by negative hyper-dimensional beings. All this is in line with my observations and the writings of Mouravieff and Gurdjieff, except a bit more realistic than the viewpoints of those two traditionalists. Whereas John Baines says some humans are extensions of the human collective soul, the Cassiopaeans say they are instead extensions of particular animal group souls. They say such so-called “organic portals” serve as a bridge between the human and animal kingdom, helping to transfer higher human energies to these animal group souls to accelerate their evolution, but that their function has been hijacked by higher negative forces for their own energy harvesting use.

So what I am saying in this article is not without precedent. I merely made the observation of “empty” people independently in 1999-2001 and then cycled through various personal speculations and existing theories before settling on the current one explained in this article.

I believe there are several ways in which people end up spiritless. Some are born that way because no spirit ever took root, just like theater seats that remain empty because no one bought tickets for them. Others may have started out with spirit but had it depart at some point in life. It could have evacuated through abuse or sudden extreme trauma, or evaporated gradually from decades of soul-killing routine. Not everyone who dies necessarily drops dead. People can go on existing as hollow shells, as echoes of their former selves, now void of the spirit that once gave them spark. There are other darker phenomena like dead people getting reanimated by aliens with advanced technology, human clones, and other types of artificial humanoids that would lack spirit, but these are relatively rare and therefore not worth discussing in this article (see instead my article on Human Simulacra).

Here I speak mainly of a larger sector of the population who naturally lack spirit, who always have throughout history, and who by virtue of their predatory and worldly natures have gravitated toward the top of the social, economic, and political hierarchies and made the world antagonistic toward spiritual impulses.

The Benefits of Understanding

As you can see, this idea that some people lack spirit explains much about the robotic, animalistic, predatory side of humanity. So many of us are under the false assumption that we are all the same inside, that if we walked in another’s shoes we would fully understand their motivations. But not all inhuman acts trace back to mere environmental variables. There are cases where, even if we put ourselves in their place, we would not act the same. That is because the cause of their motivations is not environmental, but metaphysical: the absence of spirit, and the supreme reign of ego.

Those who ignore the possibility of spiritless people will continue to shake their heads in frustration at behaviors they simply cannot compute and must either ignore or rationalize away. When dealing with a spiritless psychopath, for instance, such individuals are easily deceived and manipulated.

Only after getting burned again and again do they realize some humans are a different kind of animal, that some humans are not remediable because they are acting fully and healthily in accordance with their spiritless predatory nature. This is especially true of the psychopathic elite who run this prison planet; they cannot be rehabilitated, made to see the error of their ways, or convinced through appeals to empathy.

Caution and Conclusion

It would be unwise, however, to look down upon the spiritless with contempt. They are what they are, living their lives in accordance with their makeup. They should be handled no differently from how one handles a wild animal that acts according to its feral nature. It is only by trying to hold the spiritless up to higher spiritual standards that frustration sets in. Without expecting too much of them, and by understanding why they behave as they do, frustration gives way to calm insight.

Nor is it worth going out of your way to try and spot who is spiritless, because in ambiguous cases you will likely err on the side of paranoia. Since spiritless behaviors form a subset of the behaviors of spirited people, only the behaviors unique to spirited people can allow quick and certain identification, and then only of who is definitely spirited. Spotting only works for picking out who is truly spirited, which happens most easily with a spirited individual on your wavelength. You will sense the life in their eyes, the clear and unique energy behind their words, and the originality and independence behind their thought processes.


Appendix I: Common Questions

How do I know I’m not a spiritless person? – If you have experienced even one trait unique to spirit, then you are not spiritless. The very fact that you have wondered this, that you are uncertain and wish to know for sure, shows self-awareness and introspection, which is another trait of having spirit. Regardless, it is better to assume that you do have spirit and work on developing its qualities like intuition, empathy, and lucidity, all the while being aware of your lower egotistical impulses and keeping from acting on them.

I suspect that my (friend, spouse, parent) is a spiritless person, what do I do? – Set aside for a moment the question of whether they are spirited or not, and focus solely on whether you can continue being with them. Are they so manipulative, draining, abusive, or otherwise harmful to your well-being that you have to get away? If so, then it doesn’t matter whether they have spirit or not. Are they so friendly and easy going that you are doing quite fine having them in your life? If so, then it doesn’t matter whether they have spirit or not. So from a practical perspective, you only have to be concerned with whether you can deal with having them in your life. Where the distinction between spirited and spiritless does come into play is in dealing with psychopathic people, where even after promising to change they keep returning to their abusive ways; then at some point, instead of rationalizing that they are just misguided and need even more time and attention, it is better to conclude that maybe they are acting perfectly in line with who they really are. Naive people who think everyone is equally good inside will keep rationalizing and taking the abuse, but those with higher understanding will recognize the warning signs of futility sooner and save themselves the trouble.

How is this concept of spiritless people not somehow divisive, racist, persecutory, and antithetical to the idea of human equality, unity, harmony, and brotherhood? – If the theory is true, that some people do in fact lack spirit, then the truth of the matter should not be ignored for the sake of political correctness. When properly applied, knowledge can lead to greater stability and harmony in the long run. For example, every attempted utopian society has failed because it was founded on naive assumptions about the makeup of its citizenry; selfish, psychopathic, predatory individuals end up corrupting the utopia. If the utopia were founded on full understanding of such types, then measures could have been put into place to prevent corruption. Also, a theory should not be blamed for the consequences of its misapplication; those who misapply it use it as a vehicle for the satisfaction of their own egos rather than applying it from a spiritual perspective. Instead of throwing out the theory because of its misapplication, better effort should be made to prevent its misapplication. Lastly, the unity of all life can be recognized without sacrificing awareness of the functional diversity comprising it; and only by properly understanding each part of that unity can the whole be recognized in full clarity instead of mere ignorant bliss.

Notes

1 In case anyone wonders why we even need terms like spirit, soul, astral, and etheric, it is because these constitute the simplest model that explains large body of known observations, in accordance with Occam’s Razor. People who ridicule the necessity of such metaphysical distinctions and believe only in the body, or only in body and soul, are leaving out certain crucial observations, thus their over-simplistic model suffices for their smaller set of givens. However, the model must be expanded to include observations by clairvoyants, the astutely perceptive, and anyone who has experienced the paranormal. In doing so, the additional concepts of spirit, soul, astral, and etheric enter the picture. I believe these are the minimal components necessary to explain spiritless people. But it explains a lot more, just see Appendix III. These terms are also not just ad hoc explanations, however. Instead of just being theoretical, the etheric and astral bodies are directly experienceable through astral projection and viewable by clairvoyants.

2 Amit Goswami explains with great insight how nondeterministic consciousness acquires deterministic traits through conditioning in the physical body, how quantum systems can acquire classical characteristics. See chapters 13 and 14 of his book The Self-Aware Universe.

3 What does it mean that the ego imprints itself upon the etheric component of the soul? For one, it ties into a lot of what Rudolf Steiner wrote concerning the etheric double, the doppelganger, that mysterious shadow side of ourselves that is antagonistic toward our spiritual well-being. It also ties into Steiner mentioning that in Asia where ancestor worship is common, demonic entities can wear the cast-off etheric shells of deceased persons and thereby receive unto themselves all the psychic energy given to that identity during worship. Further, the ego continuing after death in etheric form may explain certain types of ghosts, as well as the problem of astral/etheric impostors in channeling whereby a negative entity can closely mimic a deceased relative. All these phenomena suggest that some portion of a person’s worldly identity (ego) survives death, and since it cannot be via the physical body, it must be the next closest thing: the etheric component of the soul. And lastly, when it comes to true artificial intelligence in quantum computers and cybernetic beings, it should be expected that these will be accompanied by an etheric field, just as plants have an etheric field, which would assist in the artificial intelligence having some level of “life” and not be just a deterministic machine with pseudo-random output.

4 The term “second death” is Biblical. “He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.” Revelation 2:11. “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:14-15. Boris Mouravieff and the Cassiopaeans would have interpreted this approximately as follows: ‘overcometh’ means having developed spirit, ‘second death’ is the dissolution of the etheric and astral components of the soul, and ‘lake of fire’ represents the undifferentiated group soul into which the soul dissolves. What does a fire do other than melt and turn to ashes, removing all trace of former identifiability? Second death happens after the first death. If the first death is death of the physical, then the second has to be death of the nonphysical. I believe this interpretation because it makes sense.

5 “Higher” means higher in function, not positionally higher on the body, so the throat chakra is not a higher chakra since it is associated merely with speech and intellectual functions. In the Fourth Way system it correlates with the “lower intellectual center”. It probably developed or evolved along with human capacity for speech and abstract thinking, something most animals lack. That is why spiritless humans have a throat chakra as well, and why they can be intellectually sharp and have no limits to their speaking abilities. So it’s one of the lower chakras in terms of function.

Infinity and the Nature of Reality

Source: Vibe Shifting

Infinity and the Nature of Reality ImageAll right people – batten down the hatches and hold on tight because today we’re diving headlong into the heavy-duty world of metaphysics and philosophy, and we’re answering a question from one our Vibe Shifters Tribe members about infinity and the nature of reality…

I listened to an Abe Hicks segment and the person in the hot seat described how Source would “see” everything, as a clump of universes connected together by a network of light. But, is it finite, or is there infinity? Or, is Source infinite and its mere expansion creates all this stuff?

Parallel realities and multiverse theory

Is reality finite or is it infinite? This is an excellent, question and one that no one currently has a definitive answer to. One of the theories coming out of the quantum physics field right now tells us that there are infinite parallel realities; every time any one of us makes a decision, or has ever made a decision, or ever will make a decision — no matter how big or how small — a new reality is created.

You get to a stop sign and there is a reality where you turned left and another reality where you turned right. There is a reality where you had fish for dinner and another where you had chicken. A reality where you married Person A; a reality where you married Person B instead; and a reality where you didn’t get married at all.  There is a reality where you will floss your teeth tonight and a reality where you won’t. Every single decision you have ever made in your entire life has spawned new realities.

Most of the decisions are not life-changing and the parallel worlds that are formed are more or less the same. But some decisions are life-altering and the worlds they create are very different. And they are infinite… think of a fractal tree branching off forever. And multiply that by every person on the planet that ever was or ever will be. In this theory, there are infinite parallel realities.

Solipsism: Are you the only thing that’s really real?

There is a philosophical theory known as solipsism, in which you are the only thing that’s really real. In this theory, there are no others, and the individual mind is the only reality. This would mean that, in your reality, I’m not really real… I’m just a construct that your mind has created for its own reasons. As is everyone and everything else in your reality, too.

In some interpretations of LOA, it’s the only possible theory that makes sense, because if we really are all-powerful and have complete control over what happens in our experience, then other people can’t exist because it would lead to too many “exceptions” to the Law. (You create your own reality “except” for when someone else is interfering.) So, in this theory, all those other people out there (including me) are created by YOU – they are like fictional characters that behave exactly the way the script YOU wrote for them tells them to. They ONLY exist at all because you dreamed them up and wanted them there, exactly as they are.

Think of this theory like a sky full of soap bubbles… there may be lots of soap bubbles (i.e. people) out there, but they each exist within their own bubble and what happens in one bubble can’t be affected or controlled by what happens in another bubble. So, each one of us has our own closed reality and all the things and people in it are basically figments of our own imaginations, or constructs of our own minds, created because we believe and expect them to be there. And that reality is constantly shifting and changing as our thoughts change; in every moment, we wrap a brand-new reality around ourselves, or shift from one reality into a new one, with each thought and belief. In this interpretation, there is no outside Source… the individual mind is the ONLY thing that exists

Shared realities: co-creating with others

In other interpretations, this is a shared reality (the other people out there are objectively real and exist outside and independent of our own minds). What we experience of those people is still what we’ve drawn to us through our own beliefs and expectations, but we draw the “real” people rather than just fictional characters that we have created.

And the reality we create when other people are involved is created co-operatively with those other people, regardless of whether we “like” or “dislike” the situation that is created (it is created out of our expectations, not what we want or don’t want).

Think of this one like a great big computer game. You get to create your avatar (your body) and you enter the game as that avatar. You’re here to play. And to learn. And to have fun. And just to experience stuff. But one of the conditions of joining the game is that you have to forget who you really are and become your chosen character. Total immersion. Total amnesia. Not even knowing that you are, in fact, creating the game environment as you play. So is everyone else, of course, but you draw to you what you are a match to, so the co-creations work out.

The divinity within: you’re not OF Source, you ARE source

In still other interpretations, we get into the concept of the divinity within; we are not just OF Source, we ARE Source, seeking new experiences and perspectives to expand itself, and thus becoming billions of individuals with unique identities, thoughts, and experiences to add to the “cosmic database” of All That Is.

Think of it as drops taken out of the ocean and carried away — no matter how far they go, they are chemically indistinguishable from their Source, the ocean. Whether they are taken to a jungle or a desert or a huge concrete city, each and every one of those drops is still Ocean, still Source.

Separated from that source, they are not as powerful (a drop of ocean does not have the same power that the full ocean does), but they are still Source. And eventually, they all return to that Source; all water on this planet returns to the ocean eventually. It might take days, it might take thousands of years, but it all goes back to the ocean. We, essentially, are those drops — temporarily separated from the whole of Source, but still undeniably and just as powerfully… Source.

So, what’s the answer to the question already?

Well, like I said up top; no one knows for certain. Physicists are still arguing over whether multiverse theory is real, philosophers are still arguing over the nature of reality, and theologians are still arguing over the nature of God. And centuries from now, they’ll probably all still be arguing.

When it gets down to the nitty-gritty of all this kind of stuff, my advice to people is that you think about it. Think about what the possible scenarios are, and then think about what makes sense to you, and think about what feels right to you.

There are more things in heaven and earth…

Wait for a clear night and go outside and look up at the stars. Ask yourself how many there are and how far they go. According to astronomers there are about 100 BILLION stars in our galaxy alone and there are, at minimum100 BILLION galaxies in the observable Universe. That’s ten thousand billion stars out there. And that’s just what we can see… imagine what else is out there that we don’t know about yet. And there are still mysteries here on earth – it’s said, for instance, that we know more about the outer reaches of space than we do about the deepest reaches of the oceans.

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy. ~Shakespeare, Hamlet (I:v)

The point I’m trying to make here about this whole question of infinity and the nature of reality is that there is so much that we still don’t know, don’t understand, and can’t even begin to imagine. But I do believe that we create it as we go. It wasn’t until after Gene Roddenberry dreamed up communicators on Star Trek that cell phones were invented, for example. And the X-Prize foundation is currently running a contest to award $10 million to the team that creates a working medical tricorder. There’s no end of evidence out there that we create what we believe we can. And it all starts with someone’s dream. And dreams, my friends, are infinite. I believe that there are more things in heaven and earth than have yet been dreamt of in any of our philosophies…
