A journey into Alchemy, Consciousness and beyond...

Know Thyself - and thou shall know all the Mysteries of the Gods and of the Universe

Saturday, January 21, 2017

The paradox of consciousness, in the esoteric sense, is that the problem is really with human perspective. From a higher level of understanding there is no "right or wrong" in the world. Morality and Ethics are subjective to human definition and emotional state at the time of acting or reacting without them under the control of the will, while divine law , the law of compensation and exchange, cause and effect are unbreakable. There are lessons, on individual and collective levels that are to be learned or experienced in order to evolve from one level of awareness , the lower realms of consciousness concerning the self, and instinct to a higher awareness of consciousness, beyond the physical, embodying the spiritual nature .

All evil comes from within man himself. From the immersion of consciousness into the dense state of matter forgetting where it emerged from Divinity. The "Fall" as some call it. The Hermetic & Universal Law of Polarity describes this. For one to grasp the spiritual nature of things is to accept full personal responsibility for all thoughts and actions that we act on. We are responsible for our reactions, ruled by emotions or fear, that separate us further from source and from ourselves. The ancient axiom, Know Thyself, was taught throughout the mysteries concerning philosophy and higher consciousness. To know the secrets of the universe one must come to know themselves, fully, this is to know both Good and Evil within themselves. And to transmute those passions, lusts, temptations - the demons that seek control over the material & carnal nature of man. To understand and to act accordingly, in cooperation with divine law, is the way. The Right thing is known because it is the truth, the way and the light, born of agape, divine love. There is one way to do all things, when this is discovered, well the doors once locked are thrown open to he who knows the secret word. The senses expanded beyond what most can imagine within the boxes we humans try to stuff all thought. The Right thing is compassion, peace, truth, oneness. All else is created through separation from source / god, and that ignorance usurps its control over ego, imprisoning the soul within the mortal vessel.

Then there is that truth which sets one free. The holy of holies , knowable only by doing the work all who enter that path must do. The Great Work, to come to understand who and what we are, where we come from and how to unite the 2 as 1, here and now. The Alchemy of the soul, to turn the mirror inward, shed the illusions of self and ego, to seek the mysteries knowable through direct experience only, by the ever calling inward journey and unrelenting trials and tribulations to test ones true self, to become soul conscious and to rise to our destiny.

Let me ask a question, or rather make a final point regarding the state of things in this country / world, an observation that if you stick with it to the end, and apply intuition, well.... and I know so many might, will take offense but here it goes. I did not support Trump or Clinton because I see clearly through the Lies, corruption and hypocrisy of the illusion of the 2 party divide and conquer system. I did not even support Sanders, because that version was not right either. Big money and power bought both parties long ago, and its not a conspiracy, but a reality, of special interests in positions of power abusing both. Neither choice we are ever offered is truly a good person. The man who just left office? Obama, was not a good person either - He was responsible last year alone for dropping 26,000 bombs, but hey give that man a peace prize. The economy "got better" , unemployment "went down" yet we added $10 Trillion to the over all debt this country is in. The Bush war policies were continued , then watered down, but ultimately grew bigger under him. But we had "prosperity" a little more right? People gained more "rights" but the Government does not have the right to make personal freedoms a political issue, unless of course, you are not free..

 Now, with all that corruption in place, so many divided between the party line, drawn in chalk on the playground of the Republic that once was, now a "Democracy" run by 51% telling the rest to accept what is dished out every 4 to 8 years to keep the masses distracted enough to realize they are being played. Everyone is and has been being played for years. While out at Standing Rock in Dakota, we have human beings, peaceful and unarmed against a pipeline of oil, sure to leak as they all, being assaulted with "non lethal" weapons over preserving clean water. Use your brain and think. We have each sold part of our soul if we in the face of all the truth and knowledge available to us, at our fingertips, we have fallen for the make believe differences we use to separate us from ourselves, All the things that make us unique, are used to divide and create fear. Us vs Them, when in fact it is all inclusive, all or none, not just some...

The point is lost on those without the ability to apply critical thinking, personal responsibility and an understanding of consciousness that doesn't neatly fit into the box of personal beliefs sold to us since birth. The pillars of this society built on manipulation to suck the very power out of you like vampires waiting for the night, ready to pass around the collection plate, a list of rules, but for them its do as I say, not as I do.... Illusions sold by a system and by those with stock dividends to collect, a vested interest in the very things we see today, Being the normal chaos humanity has come to expect...the wars, the fear, the huge profits but bigger debts, hourly wages that seem to always stay the same, benefits that keep rising, but go back to sleep, go back to work...everything is under control....be sure to vote and pay your taxes now, all of this of course being the product of progress, business and in this 21st century digital dream that most are lulled so easily asleep..

I do not mean this as a jab in anyway, we were all programmed and brought up within the same system. Some of us see through the separation it causes and seek unity. Peace. Love. Truth. Oneness. I love this planet, this human experience, the possibilities of so many realities yet we stand on the brink of extinction events while most aimlessly walk around, not even looking where they are going, staring at a personal computer screen, vicariously watching the world, or being distracted and entertained by Music, and Movies glorifying the very decay and psychosis of the human spirit in 3D techno color...living life through a haze of reality TV.....

Or we have a choice. The ability to transcend the chaos and find the center. Those who know, well there are no words that will do here. We always have a choice, and that choice is always the ever present now, oneness, the opportunity for change, for peace, for light & love & truth to shine like the sun upon your face.

This is very true, all of it and so much more. Deciphering the metaphors from the past to piece together our story at hand is so important. I have to remind myself at times that I once didn't know anything and still don't know anything. Programming, indoctrination through religious, public education, media, entertainment, music industry and military means are real. I'm utilizing psychedelics and other techniques to snap out of the layers and layers of programming. Embracing the alienation that comes from Gnosis. I already sound c r a z y, but that's how the system is designed, you get outcast. It hasn't been easy, but I must say, I've embraced and Loved every single b a d event in my life, even the t e r r i b l e ones, because I know this isn't "real" anyway, I'm choosing to play the game, ergo I won't play into anyone's or anythings game... unless I actively and Willingly choose to participate. Like the elections, I'm right there with you, I didn't support any of it. I don't want to play. I just want to experience and have many lessons while I stop serving and begin to create my OWN reality and spread Love. I don't want to ruin anyone's game, but we've been suckered for too long and there are, as in old school games, cheat codes and power ups(really just dormant normal "abilities") and we should have access to those secrets. It's 12:13
