'Any Fool Can Know. The Point Is To Understand"

The Realm Of The Gods

When you reach beyond the veils, into the 'realm of the gods', your perception changes. It can no longer be judged in earthly, limited sensory, terms. It cannot be perceived by a conscious mind. If your awareness explains it in human terms, with human phraseology, then it is the mind of your ego that you explore.

In the worlds beyond the veils there are no ascended masters, no gods, no angels, no guides ... there is nothing to see, nothing to hear, nothing to feel, nothing to taste, no contrasts - yet everything is there. It is omnipresent awareness. A comprehension of all things happening simultaneously.

Nothing human. Nothing contrasted. Nothing of the five sensory world. It is a nothing. A stillness. Yet a constant awareness. Bringing back an understanding from there to here enables the mind of the ego to shape its version of what was seen. Quite often based on misguided perceptions that rule you on earth, so the ego still assumes control as the teacher, the hero, the god, the angel ... whatever it needs to be to keep the human locked in its misguided five sensory reality.

Growth is accepting this fact. Accepting there is nothing out there that can be a saviour or a demon or an angel. It is but one thing. One energy. One source. It is all things. It is beyond time, and it contains all that there is in simultaneous play back. It is not the astral plane. It is beyond the astral plane. If there are distortions and challengers and so called supernatural forces, then your vision is of the astral world. The realm of the gods is a whiteness, a realm of nothing but of everything. It is infinite and undefinable. Anything else you see is a false hood created by the ego to prevent you from seeing what is really out there, beyond the veil - Matthew James

Thoughts to get you Thinking #96

"Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him." -- Aldous Huxley

What was your peak experience of this past week?
What was your most challenging experience?

Stepping back to review your week can offer many insights. Normally we can't see the forest for the trees. Now back away and see the whole forest. Review your week. Now write a short summary -- whatever comes to mind for you. If action is required, plan how you will accomplish it in the next week.

"Ask the experienced rather than the learned."-- Arabic proverb

"Experience is that marvellous thing that enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again."-- Franklin P. Jones

Pavey Ark, Langdale, UK


Wounded I hung on a wind-swept gallows
For nine long nights,
Pierced by a spear, pledged to Odin,
Offered, myself to myself
The wisest know not from whence spring
The roots of that ancient rood.

They gave me no bread,
They gave me no mead,
I looked down;
With a loud cry
I took up runes;
From that tree I fell.

Nine lays of power
I learned from the famous Bolthor, Bestla' s father:
He poured me a draught of precious mead,
Mixed with magic Odrerir.

Waxed and throve well;
Word from word gave words to me,
Deed from deed gave deeds to me.

Runes you will find, and readable staves,
Very strong staves,
Very stout staves,
Staves that Bolthor stained,
Made by mighty powers,
Graven by the prophetic God.

For the Gods by Odin, for the Elves by Dain,
By Dvalin, too, for the Dwarves,
By Asvid for the hateful Giants,
And some I carved myself:
Thund, before man was made, scratched them,
Who rose first, fell thereafter. more>>>>...

A Life of Learning

Daily OM: Life is the province of learning, and the wisdom we acquire throughout our lives is the reward of existence. As we traverse the winding roads that lead from birth to death, experience is our patient teacher. We exist, bound to human bodies as we are, to evolve, enrolled by the universe in earth school, an informal and individualized academy of living, being, and changing. Life's lessons can take many forms and present us with many challenges. There are scores of mundane lessons that help us learn to navigate with grace, poise, and tolerance in this world. And there are those once-in-a-lifetime lessons that touch us so deeply that they change the course of our lives. The latter can be heartrending, and we may wander through life as unwilling students for a time. But the quality of our lives is based almost entirely on what we derive from our experiences.

Earth school provides us with an education of the heart and the soul, as well as the intellect. The scope of our instruction is dependent on our ability and readiness to accept the lesson laid out before us in the circumstances we more>>>....

'Existence is the end of endless eternity without a beginning or an end'

Cell Phones Are About To Become More Powerful Than You Could Imagine

Activist Post: Many people don’t realize that some of the most significant technological breakthroughs in recent years, like voice and facial recognition software, autonomous driving systems, and image recognition software, have not actually been designed by humans, but by computers. All of these advanced software programs have been the result of neural networks, popularly referred to as “deep learning.”

Neural networks are modeled loosely after the human brain and learn like them in similar ways by processing large amounts of data, along with algorithms fed to the networks by programmers. A neural net is then able to teach itself to perform tasks by analyzing the training data. “You essentially have software writing software,” says Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO of graphics processing leader Nvidia.

Research in the area of deep learning is advancing so quickly that neural networks are now able to
dream and can even communicate with each other using inhuman cryptographic language indecipherable to humans and other computers. The only drawback to the technology is that the networks require a lot of memory and power to operate, but MIT associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science Vivienne Sze and her colleagues have been working on a solution that could enable the powerful software to operate on cell more>>>...

Archons, Gnosticism & The Reptilian Agenda - David Icke

Moving from Stuck to Flow

Daily Om: For some, it's a job. For others, it's a relationship, family situation, where they live, how they spend their time, habits they've developed. It could even be a pattern of thinking.

They're stuck, and they don't even know it.

The funny thing is, stuckness can happen even in situations that we've consciously chosen.

For example, you may have decided four years ago to create your own business; it was a conscious choice, you went through a lot of soul searching and listening to the Universe to get there. Now, for some reason, it doesn't feel good any more. It feels flat, boring, meaningless.

Or perhaps you entered a relationship years ago: you committed to that relationship, you were certain you'd found true love. Maybe you even got married. And now... it doesn't feel good any more. You've outgrown it, or it's outgrown you, or... it's hard to know why it's not more>>>...

Self-transcendence: The art of achieving seemingly impossible goals by focusing on a purpose greater than yourself

S.O.T.T: Stulberg and Magness refer to this paradigm shift as "ego minimization." They point to a recent study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, where researchers used fMRI scans to see what happens inside the brain of people presented with threatening messages.

Prior to their evaluation, each participant was asked to first reflect on their core values. What the scientists discovered is somewhat surprising: The part of the brain associated with "positive valuations" showed heightened neural activity when participants read the threatening messages. Though it sounds counterintuitive, instead of shutting down, their brains actually moved toward a challenge when faced with a threat.

A wide body of research suggests that minimizing our focus on the self increases our motivation in less heroic, mundane activities as well. An earlier study published in The Academy of Management Review found that hospital janitors who cleaned bedpans and mopped floors derived more meaning from their work when it was framed as helping patients heal. By keeping the hospital clean, they were preventing vulnerable patients from getting sicker.

When we recognize that our actions are inextricably tied to the greater good, even unpleasant chores like taking out the trash or washing dishes become acts of mindfulness. Zen monks have long internalized this lesson; they seek to achieve detachment through a spirit of selflessness. In their daily Zen practice, activities like cooking and cleaning become their own form of meditation. Thich Nhat Hanh explains that mindful living is an art: "You do not have to be a monk or living in a monastery to practice mindfulness. You can practice it anytime, while driving your car or doing housework." more>>>...

Paranormal journalist claims to have "scientific evidence" that aliens lived alongside humans on Earth

S.O.T.T: The paranormal journalist who claims to have discovered alien remains near the Nazca lines of Peru says the extraterrestrial beings once lived in harmony among humans. At a press conference last week, Mexican paranormal journalist Jamie Maussan claimed the five mummified bodies discovered over the last two months appear "closer to reptiles than humans."

Now, Maussan, who has devoted much of his life to investigating extraterrestrial phenomenons, says x-ray, DNA and carbon 14 analysis of the remains further points to the presence of intelligent life.

"We confirmed with scientific evidence the existence of beings from another world," said Maussan to RT en Español. "Before it was a possibility, now it is a reality," he added when speaking about the existence of aliens on Earth.

The mummified burial of the bodies also suggests the 'aliens' once coexisted with our ancestors, according to more>>>...

We're All In The Same Boat

Daily Om: We're all in the same boat. We just have different paddles, and perhaps we find ourselves on different rivers. We all live in human bodies. These are the vehicles in which we move through our world. We are all made of flesh, blood, and bone, with brains, hearts, and lungs to power us. Our paddles--the tools we use to move through the world--vary, as do the bodies of water--the environments--in which we find ourselves.

Some of us use our high IQs to get where we want to go. Some of use our smiles, others use kindness, a gift with language, or athletic more>>>...

Blaming Others

Daily Om: As we begin to truly understand that the world outside of us is a reflection of the world inside of us, we may feel confused about who is to blame for the problems in our lives. If we had a difficult childhood, we may wonder how we can take responsibility for that, and in our current relationships, the same question arises. We all know that blaming others is the opposite of taking responsibility, but we may not understand how to take responsibility for things that we don't truly feel responsible for. We may blame our parents for our low self-esteem, and we may blame our current partner for exacerbating it with their unconscious behavior. Objectively, this seems to make sense. After all, it is not our fault if our parents were irresponsible or unkind, and we are not to blame for our partner's bad behavior.

Perhaps the problem lies with the activity of blaming. Whether we blame others or blame ourselves, there is something aggressive and unkind about more>>>...

The Difference Between Magical North and Magical South

There is a distinct difference in spiritual energy vibration between the southern hemisphere and the northern hemisphere. The energy here in the UK feels more ancient, more potent in someway ... but is much harder to access and raise. I say this, because in Australia, the energies are closer to hand, appear to be easier to summon, but are not as obviously potent.

Polarities are different. When you raise energy in the UK it is moved in a clockwise direction. In Australia, a clockwise motion is not a positive movement. This is the confusing aspect. Energy directions are opposites between the two hemispheres. Raising energy in Australia, and in New Zealand, is done in a counter-clockwise direction.

They say that the forces in the southern hemisphere are more ancient, and been along longer. I dispute this. I would comment the energy in the southern hemisphere is much easier to be corrupted by. It is not necessarily evil, or dark, it just has a tendency to deceive and portray itself as something it is not. I find you know where you are with northern hemisphere energy. After 15 years of energy working in New Zealand and Australia, I do prefer the ancestral connections in the northern hemisphere. It is harder to work energetically in the UK, in truth. Australia has some sensational energy pockets, I will say. The UK energy is raw and heavy in comparison. But the Australian vibration is far more punishing ...

Thoughts to get you Thinking #95

"Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force. You can see that when you think how the friends that really listen to us are the ones we move toward, and we want to sit in their radius as though it did us good, like ultraviolet rays."-- Brenda Ueland

How well do we communicate with others? Often, when we are interacting with others, our attention in both speaking and listening is focused on meeting our own needs.

Our communication skills improve when we can open to be aware of the needs of the other person. When we listen, we can release the filters that serve our own needs for security and receive the message with our compassionate heart. And when we speak, we can choose words that the listener is able to receive. True communication happens when we harmonize with the other individual.

"So when you are listening to somebody, completely, attentively, then you are listening not only to the words, but also to the feeling of what is being conveyed, to the whole of it, not part of it."-- Jiddu Krishnamurti

"The first duty of love is to listen."-- Paul Tillich

Questioning Everything

Daily OM: A lot of people feel threatened if they feel they are being asked to question their cherished beliefs or their perception of reality. Yet questioning is what keeps our minds supple and strong. Simply settling on one way of seeing things and refusing to be open to other possibilities makes the mind rigid and generally creates a restrictive and uncomfortable atmosphere. We all know someone who refuses to budge on one or more issues, and we may have our own sacred cows that could use a little prodding. Being open-minded means that we are willing to question everything, including those things we take for granted.

A willingness to question everything, even things we are sure we are right about, can shake us out of complacency and reinvigorate our minds, opening us up to understanding people and perspectives that were alien to us more>>>...

It's been described in A Light In The Darkness, as 'The Shaking of the Tree'. Indeed it is ... and still will be. It is a cleansing process that has been understood as a necessary process to rid the physical plane of the false claims and the false practices, that are not spirituality or proper communication with the other worlds.

It is the ways and means to protect those who are the true purveyors of these ancient arts, by forcing them onto pathways that lead them away from the harmful rays of ridicule at this time. It places them safe in the light. It enables those who are of the 'plastic' variety ... the charlatans, the inexperienced and the misinformed ... to shine fully with their Emperor's Clothes so they can be seen for what they truly are ... they are NOT what they claim to be. or even what they think they are.

Alone in their ego forged glory they will most surely see themselves in the mirror when they venture out of Yesod and see the truth ... they have been deceiving others and more importantly, themselves.

The true purveyors may, or may not, venture back into the public eye ... they may practice their arts in the shadows ... working for the good of the one, not for the self glory that the plastic variety carry around them ... their emperor's clothes shine a light that attracts the make believe theories that the new age caravan so readily creates for the gullible ...

The truth is so far away from the shaking tree that so many find themselves on at this time .... the truth is protected from the plastic ones ... it is something they can only find within themselves ... it is not taught or offered in the myriad of courses and workshops that are out there at this time.

Trusting Spiritual Assistance

Daily OM: We may have become accustomed to asking for help from the unseen world but sometimes we may forget to close our connection afterwards with a thank you. When we connect to these energies for assistance, it is much like a phone connection. Forgetting to close the conversation with a proper "goodbye" is like not hanging up. While that line is still connected, others can have trouble getting through, while in the meantime, batteries are being drained. Saying "thank you" is a way of releasing our concerns into trusted hands and getting out of the way so that the universe's divine order can work on our behalf.

As spiritual beings, we may talk about "staying connected," but our connection needs to be with our more>>>...

LONG MEG stone, Cumbria, UK
A favourite haunt of mine for so many years prior to living 15 years in the Southern Hemisphere. It took from July 2002 to March 2016 to get back to Long Meg & Her Daughters stone circle near Penrith in Cumbria. An absence of nearly 14 years. I recently returned in May 2017, and plan more trips to this 'last druid working circle' ... it is indeed a very powerful place.
