How Can We Survive?

Well, here it is 3:00 AM again with me still wide awake; four nights in a row, unable to sleep, or to command my mind to stop thrashing about seeking some clarity amid the chaos of mankind's dark night of the soul. 

I light up another cigarette with bemused disgust, knowing it's bad for my health, knowing it probably makes no difference, considering.

When this Ebola outbreak began I told myself that it was just more of the same old fear pandering we are so accustomed to, tried to pass it off as just that; despite knowing better.

For most of my life I've been prone to psychic flashes, even full-on visions every so often.  The strongest visions have always happened during dream states, but occasionally when I think I'm drifting off for a nap it will blossom into a kind of mini-vision, or lucid daydream.  It is something like what my friend Soren Dreier calls going into the morph.  While he has mastered the technique, I have mostly been content to just take what comes. 

It was back in 1979 when I had one of those afternoon mini-visions.  I was living in the Alaska wilderness with my family at the time; and the news was all abuzz about an Ebola outbreak, I think it was in Sudan.  Sitting down to take a break following my afternoon chores; I quickly "nodded off" into one of those visions from the morph, whereupon I "saw" a map of the world showing the Ebola virus spreading from country to country like a wildfire.  I "heard" a voice saying that this is how they will do it - not now, but many years in the future." The vision played on a bit longer, showing the virus covering the earth, and a speeding clicker showing millions of deaths. 

When I saw Soren's recent post Tales from the morph VI ** I knew that this wasn't just another minor Ebola scare.  This may well be the beginning of what I saw in my vision 35 years ago!

I remember back when Henry Kissinger referred to the masses of world population as "Nothing but useless eaters."  You'd think we'd take the hint and get rid of everyone in power who thinks like that, but no, not us, we just kept grazing away contentedly.  

Back in 1995 we became aware of the aerial spraying program.  Collectively we did nothing about it, left it for someone else to stop and now our skies are filled every day with the poisonous toxic chemtrails.  They tell the school kids the planes are re-building the ozone layer to protect us; but to everyone else they deny everything, and we let them, every damn time

I want to know why?

With the emerging news that there may well be a second, airborne Ebola strain I guess it's safe to say that "Airborne Toxic Event" isn't just a rock group anymore.  Coming soon to a paradigm near you!

We have known for some time now that the Neocons of the NWO fully intend to reduce the human population of Earth to about one fifth it's current number.  One of Kissinger's pals recently even said that it is now cheaper and easier to kill large groups of people than it is to control them.  Still wondering what they have planned?  Naturally, they knew going in there would be mass resistance & protest; which is why they have softened us up with pacification technologies such as chemtrails, HAARP, GWEN towers, fluoridated water, & GMO foods just as appetizers.

The main course is now being served up across the planet: Fukushima/Ebola/Chemtrail cocktail with a Corexit chaser...this is a catered affair with more than enough for everyone; ensuring horrific nightmares for generations to come and a future where genetic mutation will be the norm rather than the exception. 

I hope you like the future they are now implementing, you voted for it with your silence.

TV and media have become the slave master's oracle; telling us how we should feel, and when to feel it, and of course what to think.  Because these ghouls actually feed off the fear they generate, they like to whip us into a frenzy with TV shows like Helix, & The Strain and ads for new movies like Mad Max: Fury Road, and the latest installment in the Hobbit franchise: Battle of the 5 Armies; as preview of the coming attractions they have planned for us in real time.

How can we survive?

We cannot.  But we can transcend it!

Argue in favor of your limitations and you get to keep them.  If you believe that you are your body and there is no way to survive that which I speak of; then the universe will create that reality for you because it thinks that's what you want.  If that isn't what you want, quit thinking it!

Of the steps involved with transcending this genocide of madness, the first is the most important because it requires an expansive adjustment in thinking, and a top down reassessment of your picture of reality.

The Lakota people have within their traditional culture a specialized type of shaman known as Heyoka, the contrarian who speaks and acts in ways opposite of what would be normally expected.  The Heyoka may speak backwards, wear clothing inside out, complain about the heat at night; all as ways to point out the obvious thru satire and wit.  I encountered a little Heyoka spirit in  a recent post I read which talked about the practicing of "crazy wisdom"* in our grappling with emerging planetary disaster; and I found it quite refreshing, even helpful.

For those who still don't believe despite what they see, I suggest you review the track record of the responding government authority to mega-disasters such as Katrina, BP's gulf oil spill, Fukushima, etc.  What they want you to see as merely cosmic level incompetence is actually a planned agenda of allowing, if not creating such disasters to further their goal of depopulation.

This is not the way it is supposed to go down. 
I never heard the words Ebola or Fukushima in that 60's anthem "Aquarius."

In light of the future awaiting us my successes seem inconsequential
and my failures more profound as I seek higher vibrational ground.

The only way out, is in.

In unguarded moments my thoughts are of my daughter and grandchildren in Alaska, just downwind from Fukushima.  She's well aware of the dangers yet elects to remain; a spiritual decision.  I think if I were asked to, I would return to Alaska & join them for the duration.

These days I find myself thinking often of the one great love of my life, wondering where she is and what things her chosen path have brought her, and wondering what will become of her.

My waking nightmares are filled with the utterly detestable violations of human rights around the globe, and our collective indifference to it. 

Will we still be so indifferent when its our lives being snuffed out?

How can we survive our collective apathy and inaction?

I always wanted to be a lighthouse keeper.

May the Source be With You

Marijuana Enlightenment

I didn't trust the process when it first appeared, so I opted out and have been avoiding it ever since.  Even when those around me, including my best friend embraced it; I kept my distance.  For over five years I've refused to climb on the bandwagon; but recently the universal law of three caught up to me, and I finally went to get my medical marijuana card.  Within less than two weeks, three different sources encouraged me to get the card, including my new primary care physician at the VA.  Yup, the universe was speaking to me in no uncertain terms; time to change.

It isn't that I thought the whole idea was wrong or anything, just the opposite; I've been a supporter of legalized marijuana for years, but I don't feel like the government has any right to register me as a cannabis user, (considering how well that went for native Americans!)  If I sound like a dinosaur it's because I've been smoking the weed for almost fifty years, and for the majority of that time doing so illegally.  Not only did many of America's founding fathers grow hemp, for a time it citizens were required to grow hemp.  You see, over the years the U.S. government has had a love/hate relationship with hemp; they want to tie up the ships without turning on the troops.
Cannabis has long been hailed as a medicinal healing herb, in fact the Sears catalog of 1853 carried several cannabis based medicines you could order.  In 1937 the Marijuana Tax Act essentially made using the weed legal, if you had the right paperwork.  This continued till 1969 when it was thrown out because it violated the fifth amendment.  During WWII; American farmers received draft deferments for themselves and their sons; if  they grew hemp.   Henry Ford once designed and made a car out of hemp.  It was 30% lighter and 10 times as strong as steel.  It was never produced because of pressure from the competition, who couldn't compete with it.  For very similar reasoning, the AMA has led the charge against legalizing marijuana, despite evidence that hemp cures cancer.  The pharmaceutical industry isn't interested in a cure for cancer because their profits come from selling treatment, not cures.

There is of course the nobility of smoking marijuana despite it being illegal; as a way to push back against the matrix; but let me just tell you how quickly that wears off and it becomes a constant hassle to avoid legal entanglements.  I always figured that I'd get my medical marijuana card at some point...when it became a necessity.  I haven't needed to have my card until recently due to my connection with a local grow op, which caters exclusively to the dispensaries and clubs.  In return for my help with getting the crop harvested, and security; I got my medical marijuana at a nice discount before it ever got to the retail outlet.  After two years of law enforcement harassment; and defending against crop robbers breaking in, my friend gave up and shut down the grow op a few months ago.  Several other local grow ops have closed for the same reasons; the underworld is getting more dangerous all the time.  Another good reason to go legal!

My interview with the pot doctor was as thorough and professional as I expected.  Eighty bucks and 20 minutes later I was walking into a marijuana dispensary for the first time, all nice and legal.  Many of my friends have described various "pot clubs" to me but even that doesn't prepare one for the real thing.  As a rogue marijuana user I would have to be good friends with at least 20 dealers to have anywhere close to the array and variety of products available at even a modest dispensary.  Most will have a printed menu of their offerings for smoking or vaporizing; as well as a mind boggling selection of marijuana edibles.  Some dispensaries have "vapor rooms" where one may sample the wares prior to purchase.  The phrase "Kid in a candy store" comes to mind.  Since growing your own is part of being legal, some dispensaries also offer cuttings, and starter plants, as well as seeds.  One stop shopping.  On the drive home from the day's adventures, with a nice assortment of marijuana products in the car; there was the unmistakable feeling of something being missing...oh yeah, the apprehension of being busted for carrying weed!  It really is a stay out of jail free card!  Upon stopping at my friends place, he discovered that one of the items he'd purchased didn't make it into his bag.  No worries!  Just call the place up with receipt in hand, and the problem is solved.  Try that with your underground drug dealer!  And yes, getting a receipt for my weed is a very strange experience, but one I'll get used to quickly enough.

The really hilarious side to all this, is even though the mainstream is embracing legalized marijuana, they still want to change all the street lingo to more antiseptic & politically correct terms.  Some folks get downright puffy about using only approved terminology within the establishment of a "club."  You ought not call it Marijuana any longer, the correct term is now Cannabis; likewise weed, bud, & dope is magically transformed to medicine!  It isn't a "pot club" but rather a cannabis collective, or dispensary, and you aren't buying from a dealer but rather donating to a provider/vendor.  Hash is now properly referred to as concentrated cannabis in polite society and when you take your medicine you aren't stoned, baked or fried; your medicated & relaxed.  Don't be requesting Dank, Chronic or Phatt when what you really mean is High Grade Medicine, and remember employees are now volunteers and instead of a manager, the place has a spokesperson.  If you can keep all that straight you should be fine. 

Now that more states are legalizing marijuana, and dispensaries are popping up everywhere, those businesses must be competitive to stay in business; and because of this the dispensaries are becoming better and better every month.  I will admit to laughing a bit when the news came out of Colorado recently about folks having trouble with the marijuana edibles; the chocolates, cookies & brownies.  Some users thought they'd been slipped something like LSD, while others reported they thought they were dying!  Somebody should have told those folks what they were getting into and to go easy at first with any of the edibles, because when eaten marijuana is like five times more potent than if smoked.  Some of us have known this for a while now; and it certainly wouldn't be funny if an unsuspecting child ate an entire medicated candy bar, so, show some responsibility and keep all edible marijuana products away from children of all ages!

I must say that Friday's trip to the pot club made Sunday's 49er game more enjoyable to watch.  Not only were they up against the very quarterback they just traded away, but ya just gotta appreciate a running back named Gore going up against a defensive center named Kilgore.  Then there's the running back named Carrier and the fact that the shadow of the NFL Spider-Cam looks just like a giant ass insect buzzing the players!  Reminds me of something someone once said about fighting in the Vietnam war: "When flying men kill elephants for sport people are just naturally going want to get stoned."  Like many people of my generation, I began smoking marijuana because it seemed a sane response to an increasingly insane world.  Half a century later I am still smoking it for all the same reasons, as well as a few new ones.  Not only does marijuana help me cope with nightmares & memories from Vietnam; it also relieves some symptoms of other health issues folks my age generally have.

Cannabis contains over 80 active compounds known as cannabinoids; the two most important are the THC, and CBD types.  THC is the main psychoactive euphoric ingredient in cannabis.  Medical effects include relief of pain, depression and nausea.  The CBD cannabinoid compound by itself lacks the noticeable effect of "getting high" yet is very good for treating inflammation, muscle spasms, insomnia and anxiety, as well as a wide range of other illnesses.  We are learning important things about marijuana that weren't known even ten years ago, which perhaps is why it has been called the miracle plant.

The legalization of marijuana is possibly the most progressive and enlightened thing modern society has attempted, and is long overdue, if not too late.  Getting the card and going legal is by no means an indication I believe the current social system & government will survive; but rather an indication I want access to the very best pot products available until everything goes mad max on us.  Now all I have to do is get the VA to pay for all my new medicine.

I'm Just Sayin...

The deeper we wander into this unknown country of the future, the more it resembles a battlefield.  This is part of the design, and a major indication that the architects endgame looms close now.

It hasn't gotten to this point overnight; the design is a generational plan; of death by a thousand cuts and where ever we look we see the final pieces falling together for the architects, and falling apart for the rest of us.

There is a generalized and spreading malaise growing in the underbelly of civilized society; a kind of anxiety psychosis which results in people becoming rude, hostile and aggressive for no reason at all.  It's a subconscious reaction to feeling helpless as the wheels come off and the architects drag us all towards Armageddon.

People who were already sketchy or borderline are now going full-goose-bozo; and the rest of us aren't far behind them on any given day thanks to pacification technologies like chemtrails, GMO food-like-products, HAARP, GWEN, fluoride...see the list!!  It seems half the NFL is up on domestic violence charges with new offenders named nearly every day, some with their own video. 
We've seen it pop up here & there in the news, but now it has trickled down to our neighborhoods and is coming home to roost.  A week ago a friend of mine was driving with his family on a narrow country dirt road.  He pulled over to let another car go by, but instead the other driver exited his vehicle, dragged my friend out of his car, then gave him a near fatal beat-down...for no reason whatsoever!   A neighborhood near San Jose  has had over 87 home invasion burglaries already this year!  A wildfire of hostility and pent up rage; and tonight there is a massive manhunt in Pennsylvania for accused cop killer Eric Frein with a thousand pissed cops searching the woods for him.  Didn't we just have one of these a while ago??  What is really going on with all these manhunts?

I spent a few years working in the security industry as a guard dog trainer.  At the time it was common practice for handlers to put just a touch of gunpowder in the K-9's food before going on patrol; because it caused a slight burning irritation in the dog's bowels, making him nice and irritable.  Now I myself, would never do such a thing to any animal, I only mention it here because I imagine that feeling helpless as the world [seemingly] falls apart around us has a similar effect on us.  Nice & irritable.

People everywhere are flocking to gun stores to arm themselves as these types of incidents keep increasing; and keep in mind that not all of them make the news; just enough to keep us nice and worried, according to plan.  You see; the architects know that putting the human ego into survival mode prevents it from maintaining spiritual perspectives.  As energies go: fearing the future & spirituality don't usually play well together. 

It all goes back to that odd human habit of attaching emotional energy to our belief system.  When that belief system fails along with the illusionary paradigms that support it; the result cannot help but be emotional, and often chaotic.  The more the world suffers from the architects design, the more voices may be heard asking: "Where is the Godforce in all this?  How can this be the divine plan?"  It Isn't.  The architects hijacked the divine plan in favor of their own a very long time ago: and if we now find that we dislike the way things are headed, maybe we shouldn't have ignored the psychopaths when they took control of everything!  I'm just sayin...

As far back as history goes it seems that there has always been this dichotomy of the masters, the overseers and the subservient masses.  Over this enormous expanse of time the masters have always dangled the same carrot from the same stick; by telling the masses the black hearted lie that things will get better, yet they never do, do they?  Things just always seem to drag humanity towards the black hole of oblivion, despite the lies of the architects...without any real change.

Slavery was never abolished - it was just expanded to include everyone.

In contemporary times the architects have taken the art of the great shining lie to never before attained levels of absurdity; with deceptions so lame & transparent they are actually insulting.  Just don't mess with their cable TV... and the human cattle will remain fast asleep in their easy boy recliner until DHS comes groucho walking up their walkway with automatic weapons.

Those who speak for the architects in Washington DC lament to the microphones that the system is broken, but that's just another lie; the system was designed to function exactly as it does.  The game is rigged & the fix is in, to ensure the architects will always win.  This isn't anything new, everybody knows, everyone hates it, we just push it to the back of our minds because cognitive dissonance is overwhelming just now.

The current hubbub over American boots on the ground to fight "Isis" is beyond a great example, it's classic.  As if the same exact gambit hasn't already been used many times; the Oracle at Obama promises no ground troops, even as he's planning to send them in.  The reason the architects keep using it, is because we allow them to.  Believing that no ground troops will be sent back to that mid-east litter box is akin to believing sending 3000 military troops to Africa has anything to do with Ebola, or rescuing kidnapped girls.     I'm just sayin....

"We can bomb the world into pieces but we can't bomb it into peace!"
                                                                             ~ Michael Franti ~

A casual glance at world history shows that every so often the peasants rise up and start slitting throats, but only after the pain of their everyday life becomes unbearable; when there is truly nothing left to be lost.  It is most illuminating to note that the architects always respond to such uprisings & revolutions with a solitary tactic: Violent brute force.  The current crop of architects sought to remedy that pesky rebellion problem; not by embracing freedom & equality, but by implementing the aforementioned pacification technologies to dumb us down, sap our willpower and take us right out of the equation.

The architects grand plan is designed and structured so as to compel the majority to conform to the system of indoctrination (school), productivity (work), and depletion (retirement).  Unfortunately, by the time you learn the system is nothing but socialized slavery you're too wired into it to escape; and mouthing off about it will only worsen your lot in life"

So, believe me, I get it...about why so many of you are so silent for so long now, but I have to ask: at this point are you really still thinking things are getting better?  Yes the architects plan allows for precious little extra time or resource needed to implement an escape from the system.  After all one cannot just go wandering the land with suitcase in hand; planning and preparation are needed, as well as a nice wad of cash.  Keeping you disempowered, disenfranchised, and disillusioned is also part of the architects grand design.  How much worse does it have to get before the silent majority rises up to make known their pent up rage?

Have you noticed over the last few years how the cops now all look like Seal Team 6 and behave like we're all terrorists?  Have you noticed the increased violence used on unarmed citizens without provocation?  This is the architects pushing back against the great awakening now happening, making sure that joe 6-pak gets the message in no uncertain terms. 

The fuse is burning it's way to the powder keg as cognitive dissonance and double-think collide within minds across the planet, giving all of us that gunpowder in the gut feeling the guard dog knows.  All those things we refuse to think about, such as Fukushima, are building up to a critical mass in our collective unconscious, the pressures building with each new affront to humanity.

"It's not enough to be alive when your future's been deferred."
                                                                       ~ Harry Chapin ~

 I think that a great many people nowadays are doing all they can to conceal just how much these building pressures are affecting them.  Start paying attention to peoples faces, the strangers you pass everyday; and you'll see what I'm talking about.  You'll see that thousand yard stare on their faces; which comes from psychic numbing and cognitive dissonance.  Wondering how to keep everything together as the world falls into bloody chaos & anarchy will sure enough give ya the thousand yard stare. 

Every creature in nature has a built in response encodement called the discount rate; which relates to how quickly it reacts to that which is life threatening.  Creatures having a low discount rate, such as rabbits, survive because to them nearly everything is a threat.  Humans however, have an amazingly high discount rate [off the chart!] evidenced by the almost total lack of concern over the fukushima disaster as just one example.  This is where double-think and cognitive dissonance hook up and completely take over the psyche.  No wonder people are becoming more confrontational and hostile.  It's a survival mechanism, which makes it much harder to deal with.  If you think people are rude, hostile and aggressive now, wait till they've gone a few weeks without food and power.   I'm just sayin...
Last night I watched California governor Jerry Brown sign a bill giving the government complete regulatory control over all groundwater.  I want you to think on that for a moment...all groundwater is now "owned" by the state.  Not only do we have the worlds largest pesticide manufacturers making our food; now the government owns all the water.  Just like always, nary a whimper of protest will be heard [or tolerated] in the land of the free and the home of the brave.  Humanity seems to be waiting for someone or something to swoop in and save us at the last minute as it remains immobilized by fear and unwilling to act in it's own collective best interest.  We are not the descendants of those fearless Neolithic cave dwellers who ventured forth to tame a primordial world...they all died out or were killed in misadventure.  We are the descendants of those terrified ones who refused to leave the cave, this is who we are.  The architects have bred out of humanity, those troublesome traits like bravery, courage, and the willingness to defend ourselves from them.   Slaves.

"Once you've heard the truth, everything else is just cheap whiskey"

As an example of what I'm talking about, to all who wear a necktie every day.  Do you know the origin and purpose of the necktie?  Do you inwardly hate the thing, yet wear it anyway because your boss [overseer] demands it?  Have you ever thought of what would happen if you one day refused to ever wear it again?  The necktie is nothing but a vestigial bib used to keep baby's clothes free from vomit.  The architects use it as a kind of symbol of ownership & conformity.  When they say you are free, what they mean is you are free to wear any necktie you like; buy whatever car you want.  If you truly think you are free, try not paying your taxes and see how that works out! Should you elect to cast off your necktie, rest assured a thrilling career as an internet blogger awaits you!

A word now to those awaiting deliverance from this dystopian nightmare; quit waiting and take action, any action short of beating down perfect strangers to vent your frustrated rage.  I say to you, act on your own behalf and in your best interest, because nobody else is coming.  The architects operate on the concept of highly orchestrated negligence with a feedback loop of stupidity; and believe me when I say, the shit filter is full and things are about to get hotter than Pahoehoe lava!  That 14 million dollar island for sale in the Maldives is starting to look really good right about now!

I continue to watch in astonished disbelief as ever greater horrors are given birth at the hands of the architects without any significant protest by the great unwashed masses.  Trying to understand why an entire planet's civilization refuses to fight for their very survival is harder than making a left turn in LA, and has me searching for a reset button for the universe.  This issue became a real H2IK sort of thing until I finally stumbled into the answer.  Nobody responds to what the architects do because humanity has a terminal case of depression addiction, and everyone has joined the itty bitty pity committee.  The more horrendous things become, the more we dig it because we are hooked on being depressed.  Oh yeah, one last thing...What's up with this civilization-wide obsession about touching others where they go to the bathroom?   I'm just saying maybe we need to resist the conditioning and evolve.

May the Source be with You!

Reincarnation, Karma & Destiny

As above - So below.  It is one of the first spiritual maxims many encounter upon awakening from the dream world of consensus reality; and is intended to highlight the connections between the macrocosm and microcosm.  We all have a good enough grasp of the microcosm, that's us, here in this place where getting a grasp of the macrocosm is what the spiritual journey is all about.

Of course macrocosm is just another descriptive for all we seek to know & understand about this experience called life.  There's no shortage of other words, labels, & names for it; and because a good many humans still attach emotional value to their beliefs & labels, I'll just refer to it as the Realm of Permanence, hoping nobody feels offended in any way.  This Realm of Permanence is where we all originate from, and return to; it is Source.

~ Reincarnation ~
Back when time was young, millions of souls agreed to participate in a kind of experiment (which is why earth isn't homeworld for any of us, we're all transplants here).  Source wanted to know if we could be stranded here on this primitive, negative, low-density, low-vibration planet with absolutely no memory ~ and still find our way back home to source.  This transmigration of souls would play out over thousands of generations, with each of the participants having multiple and successive lifetime experiences, called incarnations. 

When not incarnated into the physical realms, each of us exists in an energetic state which many refer to as spirit.  Every sovereign soul is kind of a triad being; comprised of three distinct aspects known as the Thinker, the Doer, and the Knower.  When it comes time for another incarnation on earth, only the thinker & doer aspects incarnate into the physical body, the Knower aspect remains in the realm of permanence functioning as a sort of guide & lifeguard, and we call this our Higher Self.

Because source invented multi-tasking, our various incarnations serve several goals simultaneously; with our advancement as a soul being the primary function.  With each lifetime we have the opportunity to learn more, remember more, to become more.  The reason for all this is of course to attain enlightenment, and then return home, with everyone else, on the homeward leg of this great soul migration.*  Because one cannot attain enlightenment from a single, lone perspective; we're sorta required to experience life from all perspectives before we're done.  This means that in the fullness of time every one of us will experience multiple lives in each gender, from both ends of every polarity, with a generous helping of everything in between.  We will know male & female, wealth & poverty, peace & violence, sickness & health; and when we have experienced life through each of these perspectives, enlightenment will be within our grasp.

We not only reincarnate as individuals, but also within select groups of individuals so as to learn the dynamics of family structure; with each in the group taking turns as mother, father & child.  There are of course others who also travel with us from one incarnation to another; or drop by every other lifetime or so.   I just call them the chorus of unseen friends because kindred spirits tend to travel together.  Some of them you recognize immediately, and may even share memories of previous sojourns together.  Others might not be incarnate just now, but stay close to keep tabs on us, and we call them guides or maybe angels, because we can feel their presence. 
Each of us feels a hollow empty longing deep within our soul.  We know not what this void is, just that we need it filled to become fulfilled somehow; and though we may risk many an addiction to fill this void; nothing comes close until we find our twin soul, or soulmate.  Some become obsessed with the search for their soulmate, even to the detriment of their spiritual progress.  It is best to not become overly obsessed with finding your soulmate, for several reasons.

 First and perhaps most obvious is that for every one of us there any number of potential soulmates in a lifetime, and no guarantee that the perfect one for you is even incarnated just now.  Searching is no way to find your perfect mate; Being, however is!  If you really want the challenge and exhilaration of a soulmate level relationship then you must yourself already possess the same qualities and attributes you seek in a life partner.  Magnetism, it works every time!

Many of us believe that our incarnation at the time of the great shift of the ages is no cosmic accident.  With team light & team dark each vying for the collective souls of humanity I believe that source has marshaled it's most adept spiritual masters & warriors to incarnate at this time.  We didn't come here to be spectators.  We are here to act on behalf of humanity and earth as agents of change; to restore balance and freedom.  We're not born obnoxious, greedy & violent - those things are bred and programmed into us to prevent us from remembering who we really are, and what we're here to accomplish.  Each of us incarnates here with two objectives.  First there are those things we came here to learn on our quest for enlightenment, and then there is something we came here to do, a service to perform; our personal spiritual mission. 

As for the "time" between incarnations; it is divided into twelve different states.  Immediately following the transition called death, the spirit moves sequentially through six after death states.  The first of these is a kind of recess, a time to acclimate to the transition, a time to let the memory begin to recover.  Following the rest period there are five more after death states to traverse, having to do with reviewing the just ended life, and assessing the lessons learned, and so forth.  The next six states are pre-birth states; and as such are geared to assist in preparing for another incarnation.  It is within these six phases that we choose what gender we will be, what race, who our parents will be, and the things we are going back to learn. 

As previously stated, there is also group reincarnation which essentially is like-minded kindred spirits moving thru time together, usually with a specific agenda in mind.  This differs from the family type group reincarnation primarily because each member of the group seeks the optimal individual factors needed to achieve the group's goal.  Other times groups will group incarnate for the sheer fun and challenge of finding and being with one another time and again.  There is no set, or required number of incarnations we must experience.  Most of us will require a good many incarnations to learn our lessons and reach enlightenment; others will get it sooner, and move on.  You see, it's all about breaking the cycle of reincarnation, and moving on to higher vibes and a better neighborhood. 

For those wondering about past lives, hypnotherapy has been used in a technique called regression.  Now there are a couple snags to be aware of and the first is that not all hypnotherapists are on the up & up, so those seeking regression hypnosis should observe due diligence.  The other snag can be just as bad as a quack; and that is letting your ego go off tripping about who you were in a past life.  Yes, many of us were at one time living much more interesting lives, perhaps some even were people of historical record.   Logic alone insists that we couldn't all have been kings, queens, scholars, artists, and musicians.  Somebody had to also be the criminals, slaves, murderers, and dregs of society, and before we're done, we'll each play all the roles.  Makes no difference today unless the person in question can apply the lessons learned in that past life, to their current incarnation.  That's it in a tiny nutshell, the only true value in knowing of your past lives is if you bring forward the things you learned from them.

~ Karma ~
Being as this is a universe of free will & destiny rather than that of a fixed fate; we humans often run smack up against the universal law of unintended consequences as the energy connections come back around to bite us in the ass...otherwise known as karma.  Let's say you spent an incarnation as someone who did violence to others, your karma then would be to live another incarnation on the receiving end of violence, so your soul has the experience of both perspectives.  If on the other hand you lived a life of always putting the needs of others before your own; in another life, your needs would all be met quite easily.  These days we know the same energy by other names, like poetic justice, or what goes around comes around but regardless what label you put on it, karma always prevails. 

There are naturally several differing types of karma to consider, other than the individual kind.  Beyond simple concepts like good and bad karma there is the kind seemingly dished out by the universe itself; called retributional karma, to ensure that no evil deed goes unpunished.  There is also group karma and planetary karma, as well as my personal favorite, instant karma.   Usually karma takes a while to catch up with us, which is really a pity because often the cause & effect aren't immediately recognized. Sometimes however karma acts more like a mouse trap, and comes smashing down instantly, kind of like instant messaging from the universe.  It's very interesting that instant karma expresses primarily in one of two ways.  One expression is for when the lesson has to be processed & assimilated instantly; and the other happens when your karma is nearly zero.  When a soul has balanced the karmic scales while incarnated, then acquires new karma, it tends to come back around very quickly, which is a good thing.
A lot of folks have the wrong idea about what karma really is; it isn't punishment, but rather feedback from source.  In this world of free will and destiny, when one commits a crime, sin or other wrong-doing the punishment is the act of wrong doing itself.  Source does not concern itself with revenge, or vengeance; we came up with that all on our own.  Seeking revenge upon others for their misdeeds only serves to amplify and extend the karmic cycle.  Revenge is like drinking a bottle of poison thinking it will kill your enemy and never results in a positive outcome. 

There is a good reason why folks on the spiritual path seek to balance out their karma, and that's because like reincarnation; karma is a cycle we need & want to break free from.  It's a merry-go-round of repetitive patterns, behavior & thinking, and no matter how thrilling & entertaining the ride is, eventually we want off.  We are riding the cusp of humanities evolution this very moment, and one of the realities within our grasp is the one where all are liberated from the cycles of reincarnation and karma, forever!  Sound good to you?  Our knower aspects aren't going to just hand this to us on a silver platter, that's not how it works.  Just thinking isn't enough, we must act upon our thoughts, and Do that which is necessary to ensure reaching our desired destination.  That is, after all why the thinker & doer incarnated into physicality.  The problem is that while asleep within consensus reality, we cannot hear the knower aspect of our soul, and are essentially cut off from higher self and spirit.

"I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act;
But I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act."
                                                                     ~ Buddha ~

Those millions of souls who undertook the experiment in separation so long ago all share in a group Noetic destiny.  Likewise each of us activates an individual destiny each time we incarnate in this place.  Only when we understand that we create our reality with our thoughts, can we begin to understand that we also are the masters of our personal destiny. 
The dictionary can be most helpful in understanding destiny; because you find it between destination and destitute!  If you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there; destiny isn't a place you arrive at, it is something you work for and achieve.  Perhaps the idea was expressed best by Sarah Connor in the Terminator franchise; "There is no fate but what we make for ourselves."  This isn't new or even metaphysically based knowledge; philosophers and theologians have always known that the reality we see manifest originates in our very thoughts.  Here is how it works:

The Destiny Formula

Everything is energy
Energy follows thought
Thought becomes belief
Belief determines your reality.
Your reality shapes your destiny.

We do not consider our thoughts as being so powerful, but they are, especially the negative and hurtful ones we so often strengthen further by speaking them aloud.  When our thoughts are negative or disempowering that energy is programmed into everything that thought touches, and if left unbalanced will also taint the resulting reality.  It is not our nature to think hurtful or diminishing thoughts about ourselves and others; we do so because that is what we have been conditioned and trained to do over countless generations. 

Forces not aligned with the realm of permanence like this world just as it is now and would not willingly see us attain all we came here to do.  By not choosing a destiny for yourself, someone else will be happy to provide one for you, rest assured.  If you change your beliefs, your reality changes accordingly: it has to because it has no choice, but you do.  The universe rearranges itself to accommodate your picture of reality.  If you think you are powerless against "fate" and destined to fail; the universe assumes you must need those lessons to fulfill yourself, and gives them to you. 

It is a surprisingly easy thing to test for non-believers.  Try going a week without finishing a negative thought.  When you catch yourself in the middle of a negative thought, simply vaporize it, then replace it with a similar thought having a positive polarity.  If you do your part you will see tangible results because it works, it has to.  Further more, every time you repeat that little thought exercise you are eroding old negative neural pathways in the brain, and re-wiring it with new, positive polarity thoughts.  When you see how easy it is to change your reality, you'll be doing it all the time.  When that happens, teach it to others.

Thirty something years ago I came across a quite remarkable book in a rather mysterious way.  I was licking my wounds in the wake of a divorce, and living aboard a small, engine-less cabin cruiser down on city float up in Ketchikan Alaska.  My friend who rented me the living space, had a previous agreement with a fellow named Steve from nearby Pennock Island; allowing him to moor his speedboat alongside every day while he was at work in town.  Steve was a boat person, so I was seldom aware when he crossed back & forth to the dock, that was a bonus.  So was the fact that his reserved mooring kept the fishing boats from tying up along side my home.  Kind of a symbiotic relationship.  I happened to be out on the back deck one morning when Steve arrived.  He grins this big smile with about a thousand perfect teeth and tells me he has something for me.  I invited him in for coffee but he declined saying he was running late.  He hands me a bundle wrapped in a single sheet of buckskin leather, saying it was a loan and that he would be back for it before the salt air could harm it.  Wrapped up in this leather was a rather large and obviously old book, titled "Thinking and Destiny" by Harold W. Percival.  The book was subtitled "Being the Science of Man".  At over a thousand pages, and with the first chapter after the introduction being "the purpose and plan of the universe" -  I was hooked!
 I spent that day and all night reading this book.  I just couldn't put it down.  My marathon reading session hadn't even gotten me a third of the way thru because everything I was reading was both new, and difficult to process quickly.  The following day I went to the city library to find the book.  They not only didn't have it, they'd never heard of it.  There was a nice bookstore in town so I tried there as well with the exact same result.  I'd brought all the traditional information on the book, it's publisher, library of congress number, the works and had to settle for ordering a copy.  Before returning home to continue reading, I picked up a couple of notebooks to compile some information in, not knowing how long I'd have the book or if I could find a copy of my own. 

One evening a few weeks later Steve stopped in on his way home to collect his book; which I'd just finished a few days earlier.  By now I had a stack of five notebooks full of my notations.  I learned from Steve that the book was originally published in 1946, but only in limited numbers.  The successive printings occurred every five to eight years thereafter, again each in limited numbers.  The following year there was another printing, and I was able to get my own copy.  Since that time the printings have come more frequently with larger numbers printed; and currently the PDF file is on the publishers website. [link is included below.] **

I've had several collections of books over the years, and it seems I always have to give them away or leave them behind at some point.  So I have this 'core library' consisting of the books I deem too valuable to lose which travels with me...Thinking and Destiny is one of those books.  I pass this along for the same reason the book is now published on the web; there isn't time for you to find it the way I did. 

Your destiny is what you are destined to experience in this life deriving from your chain of choices & decisions as you navigate your way thru the illusion of linear time.  It is decidedly not a pre-determined outcome impossible to alter or avoid.  It's perhaps cosmic irony that very often we end up finding our destiny while traveling the road we took to avoid it!  If you wait to see what your destiny will end up being, I promise, you won't like what you get.  Get up off your spiritual best intentions and start carving your destiny; we must program the picture of our personal and planetary destiny into the unified field before the universe can manifest it for us, so get cracking!! 

What if You're the one that changes everything?
