Electro-magna- May 25th 2020

The electric nature of Man is often misunderstood with the electricity that powers the magnetic forces within the world. And although in appearance they co-parallel each other - interact and respond - this is coincidence only.
For the electrical nature of the being of Man - relating to his health in the physical world, and his etherial composition - is of a completely different vitality and energetic substance, which up until now has not been able to be measured, or quantified, or seen by scientists or their instruments, to date.

Electro-magna is the plasma of all activity. If one were to try to imagine this plasma, it could be similar to a sunrise in miniature, which is by all appearances is quite gradual, and yet pronounced. Its activity is fluid, and its constancy is measured.

Electro-magna has this same property whereupon every living interplay is fluid, graduated, cyclical but with a pulse of light entering into its sequence. And this pulse is of sunrise to sundown, to night and to the new day - in miniature - over and over and over again, in any given sequence.

The original concept of electrons is of a short stranded motion, and it does not take into account this melody of sequence.

And, the only appearance of sharp activity is limited to the perceived time.
Why is this important? It could be that relative to any given time one a motion appears to be sharp or fluid, this is true ... however, this distinction is vital to understand the etheric electrical forces that are life giving, life promoting and distinct, from the subterranean electricity, which is not.

Science can only tell you one of two things: either it can document that which it observes and draw conclusions from that which it can measure, or, it can hypothesise. But it obviously cannot understand what it cannot measure, and it cannot comprehend or take into account that which is completely outside its parameters of such obviousness that it works with.

Medical science has managed to narrow its perspective according to foundations of archaic ideologies. Its presumptive methods of observation and practice relate to mistakes perpetrated a century or so ago with habitual repetition.

The same cartographers who mapped the globe sought to map the anatomy and its geography, separating each organ and system as though they were distinct from one another, rather than as the cordial whole.

Ten miles to Nowhere- 19th May 2020

Every species of design on this planet works with purpose, and has inherent within its very fabric mapped points of desire and outcome.

Worms shall be worm, and eat as worm does, and live as worm does, and die as worm does. Worms shall think as worm does, seek as worm does, procreate as worm does, and move as worm does.

And the organisation of cells incorporated in worm will conform and cooperate according to worm also.

Coherently, magnificently, worm will not only appear as worm, but will act and operate, and be as worm, completely.

And this can be said for every form and feature there is.

The word freedom has taken on many meanings: generally speaking in relation to Man it regards freedom as the right of anarchy to be whatever he would like to be ... however, we would suggest that freedom in its pure sense is that which allows one to be as they are destined to be - that worm may be free to be worm, that he may live his life as is his want to do, and is his nature to do - that is freedom.

And by no means comparing Man to worm, but to say that freedom is simply to ask that we may subscribe to our own patents and destiny, and purposes - and not to correlate to another.

Yet there is also and the favourable associative accordance with that great family and propriety of Man concurrently. In other words: for a bee to be bee, he works within a community, and partly his purpose is conviviality with other enterprising coworkers who employ the interests of each other etc.

Socialism is most often thwarted in one key aspect: and that is where the vision and purpose and will of the whole has been hijacked by pirates who no longer work for the good of the whole, save by deception and pretence only, that they do.

And this anomaly may occur in ignorance, but most likely is rooted in self interest, where the structure has therefore deteriorated, and those incorporated become enslaved thereby - especially when man being man, woman being woman, child being child, is no longer possible.

And so one can see from this simple description that freedom itself is not anarchy, but rather the freedom to be true to one’s own purpose and plan and limitations.

It is of course the nature of thoughts to outreach capabilities, especially when it comes to social and physical engineering. Academics and specialists will firstly work from a semi-awareness of their own predicament, their own purpose, and design, and project these parameters into whatever larger plan they may be forecasting. This again is a fundamental principle of being able to work with what we have, and what we know.

And so, whether consciously or not, it can be that the town planner organises a population and its amenities, and ability to move and dwell, in accordance with that of his own digestive system, which may or may not be convivial to the people he is working for - depending on the condition of his digestive system at the time.

Although this is humorous, it is something to watch for, as time and time again, well meaning people, or not so well meaning people broadcast their own predicaments onto others, using positions that empower them to do so.

Or perhaps they may do this by opinion only, as to what another may or may not do.

It is a complex problem in relation to the freedom of the individual, in order that he or she live as they need to be - rather than in the shadow and control of any other.

Things that go bump in the Night- 10th May, 2020

When fear comes upon us all other thoughts just prior, evacuate; and the very gift that fear brings, becomes that of being and enabling; bringing with it a complete reset, so to speak, in the moment - which is no ordinary thing at all.

Fear invokes the experience of stopping, of ceasing, of freezing, of reviewing, of being able to cease - to bring to a halt, whether temporary, or as a catalyst to permanent change.

Change is often initialised with the experience of fear. And this mostly unpleasant experience can be brief, perhaps appearing momentarily before the mind’s eye, presenting itself in microform, thousands of times a day.

It offers cautioning, with its silent but commanding voice, that we be careful in certain circumstances where we have been told, or have learnt firsthand to be apprehensive of something earlier.

Equally, fear may bring a completely new revelation instantaneously that is pertinent to an unusual or freshly viewed situation. And this can be a great gift.

Alarm or panic can follow, however these two are separately distinct from the fear itself, and this is something that can be discussed in a later paper. But today we are examining fear in its application of usefulness.

When the gods gave fear to Man (the Fairy Godmothers) it was indeed held to be a fine talent, and one of the most useful prized gifts of all.

There is a saying: “There is nothing to fear, but fear itself” - which could not be more incorrect as there is nothing fearful about fear whatsoever, and when the experience is understood as it is meant to be, we may simply perceive it as a gift from divinity that is enabling us other experiences in contrast to those having gone before - of full warning, of attracting energy, of summoning new thought, and of changing perspective.

Fear may also draw to itself many other emotions that follow in quite quickly, but these are not to be confused with its element either.

Fear is often a precursor to unpleasant, dangerous or terminal events - and for this reason by association alone it has been held with an unpopular view - and yet it can also be said, that of all the talents an individual may hold, fear is first and foremostly the Guardian Angel that enables and protects us throughout our lives relentlessly.

Early Christian symbology incorporated imagery that particularly was fear provoking. It has only been of recent years where the focus of piety has shifted to happier and more peaceful portrayals.

However the purpose of contemplating, or being confronted with something most fearful, was to invoke the very change that it might bring to enable a deeper reflection - to pause from one’s life and thoughts, and divine a great cause. And the fear itself was not regarded therefore as being worrisome or troublesome, but appreciated for that which it did incur.

One may well ask about the tortured depictions of our Christ in suffering as opposed to the resurrected God, for not only was this a reminder of His sacrifice, it proved such a portrait that overwhelmingly invokes fear to the extreme - especially in consideration that if even a God may suffer, we likewise may suffer too.

There became a movement in the Western World to eradicate unpleasantness from the consciousness, and to aim to incorporate a meditative quietude, believing this to be the healthiest outcome for mental stability and spiritual wellbeing. It is upon this premise that pop experts and psychiatrists measure success and failure with impossible standards, that of themselves, are unhelpful to the organised thinking of an ever evolving and adapting individual.

Imagine floating in the water at the beach and trying to move against the rhythm of the waves as you are lifted up and down with their motion and their weight - believing that you can control the experience encompassing the entire bay.

The circuit of frustration is a false belief that it is in any way possible, or desirable, to establish an equilibrium amongst the currents, the rises and the troughs, in our own time, as we would choose.

In order for one to obtain a measure of peace and equilibrium, the objective is to become more conscious, and therefore more capable - and not less able.

There will be those who seek annihilation of mindfulness i.e. intoxication - and drunkedness is a perfect example of how the emotions and talents still remain irrespective of the suppressed consciousness.

If an individual is seeking a quietude we can prove through drunkedness it is not achieved by this suppression of the consciousness, even with sleep. For the very difficult emotions and experiences continually rise up within the inebriated and are not only ever present, they are exaggerated in this state. Fear will be ever before them, all the more, until heard.

There is a fable about a little ant who carried a bead of sugar upon his back, and dutifully followed his companions on a path to the nest with great pride and purpose carrying his load. The little ant continued on until he was stepped upon by the great paw of a passing dog. With this he dropped his sugar bead and was flung far from the group he had been following. The tiny ant wriggled out from the grooves of the dog’s paw and clung to a blade of grass, until the creature had gone. A moment later he was magically turned into a tree frog - one that could spend his days at the side of the pond, sunning himself, socialising with other tree frogs, enjoying his days. That was until he ventured out onto the side of the road where a truck came through, and ran him over.

This story is a wonderful example of that which lacks fear - for fear and the premonition of fear, was absent from the text. Conversely, dramatic depictions in novels, or film, are more savoury when fear is imbibed as a prelude to the action about to fall.

If we are at the theatre and have been introduced to the idea itself of fear without knowing the outcome, the preliminary experience of fear is preparing us for change - and we find this appealing to any story - most enjoyable - and people come back for more and more of this experience ... sometimes to such degrees that are hyper-emotive such as horror or murder, genres.

Returning to this point: fear in its anticipatory element, in this context, can be perceived as exciting and invigorating: and is often sought after at the carnival, the poker game, with the extreme sports, and so it goes.

Although it may sound simple, it is extraordinarily helpful when one experiences fear of any kind to recognise it, and stop and ask oneself “what is it in this moment that I need to change? What do I need to do to take action? Is there anything I can do? Or am I just experiencing that something needs to be reformed or removed from me”.

This then is twofold in its blessing: for it will quieten the fear, because the fear has been heard; and secondly, energetically the thoughts will have begun to come in, and the will has begun to initiate action of another course.

All conditions eventually change and although we may be restrained in a fearful compromise by our will and our want, we can begin to effect the change into our future with our consciousness. Over time this has been misconstrued into thinking that we may completely create our own world instantaneously - which of course we cannot. But the truth in it is that our very future conditions in the spiritual worlds to come, and future lives (if not in this life) are certainly constructed with our desires, and our conduct, and our creative thoughts we have today.

For both ourselves and Humanity we are in the present fabricating our futures to be, continuously. And it is with reinvention and creativity, we shall outlive our fears and continue on - not despite of them, but with the great assistance these Angels of Change do bring.

Calamities & Calm- 3rd May 2020

Out from a solitary window cries the voice of Man interred...

Walls and floors and ceilings, boxes, caves with stone doors, containers, duplex, multiplex, prisons, confines ... there is a significant psycho-spiritual complication that arises when a man, or a woman, is no longer free.

There are two considerations in this: in the first part to ask what it is, how it is, that the soul of a man is fundamentally altered in captivity.

The second part is simply to state that all of Humanity is the veritable sum total of many many lifetimes - and that the individual comes to this very moment born of the preceding lifetime’s experience, from which in many of these lifetimes the soul had encountered periods of confinement and captivity.

Now of course we are all captive by circumstance - whether as free men or not, whether in open air or, free to go about where we may - there are restrictions; a lot we can and cannot do, both lawfully and karmically, and realistically - this is true. But what is to be measured here today is when the will has been thwarted and the individual has been interred - constrained in ways that are not of his own choosing, and, to whit, internally he cannot reconcile this happening.

The anguish that comes from this is magnified almost always because of former suffering having been recalled from within the deep recesses of the soul - added to which it is also directly contrary to our beings to be held captive, as all naturally seek the freedom that is God-given.

This is not to say that ever are men in any way entitled to take liberty over another with hurt or harm, but it is rather to go to the very heart of freedom itself - for example: of the spirit journey that nightly rises up and out into the starry plains of discovery and flies its courses.

And it is that the former memories of internment can somewhat accumulate and exaggerate in a pictorial representation that is invisibly kept, but nonetheless apparent, for example: being locked in a lift or in any small space, for a child or an adult, claustrophobia is more or less past experience being relived in the present. Ghosts come in many forms, and the most frightening of all is that of our own - our own astral spectres that have remained and carried over into subsequent lives.

Added to this is that the measure of suffering relates to both will and to choosing - not necessarily to conditions at all. Such as: whether it be womb or the shelter and protection of a bedroom, a home, a hotel or a guest house, or anywhere that supplies warmth and keeps out strangers, predators, noises, and the world at large. Any area we can call our own, any space that becomes defined and lockable to our choosing, any place that is warm, comfortable where we are content that it is safe. This then is of course a most pleasurable and happy environment for which we seek ordinarily. Conversely, the same surroundings may become repulsive if we cannot leave. And with this then the will will want to challenge its captivity.

Our wills are extraordinarily powerful and even though we equate them with our consciousness, they are also in part the driving engine of our physical wellbeing; motivating the fiery forces throughout the limbs, the heart, the pulsing heart, the firing sparking brain, the digestive forces, the eliminative forces, the ambient forces, that of going forward, that of standing up, that of using our eyes to see, waking up and out from our thoughts into the world, divining truth, calling the consciousness forth, amidst an orchestrated harmony of health, deliberating the perfect fit of subtle body into animal self, and collaborating the two.

These forces of will are strong in healthy individuals and it needs to be to motivate all of that fantastic collaboration, which is life within the world particularly.

Cosmically, of all the places in this Cosmos, the organisation of the will in Man, shines its brightest within the physical world, because it is there that it is required the most.

Therefore it is no small matter to restrain, constrain or chemically compel an individual in ways that challenge a will into madness.

The word ‘madness’ is not meant lightly, and it may be but a temporary affliction, momentary, or chronic. What is meant by ‘madness’ is that there are those things that make sense, those things which follow predictable roads of healthy design and then there is the chaos where life is fractured and becomes undone, or thwarted or contained, and from this, energetic rebound and confusion becomes madness understandably.

Illness, all illness is in fact a form of madness. The sane become insane. It may not reflect in the consciousness, but it is a madness in the organ it afflicts. Its tune is of discord and its palette is a muddy complexion, however, any tangle of complication - almost any tangle of complication - can be righted in the physical constitution, for there is the blueprint which keeps the madness from the ordinary.

We are corrected and dissuaded away from such madnesses continually, and it also is part of life itself; and there is a proper containment, a proper boundary that we experience where physically, mentally or spiritually, we may step out from a boundary and be corrected from a madness that would otherwise ensue.

And so one could say that there are forms of containment and confinement all about us working their ways continuously, that push back in degree against an all too fervent immature will, or perhaps when the forces of will so strongly present there is a containment nonetheless holding all in place.

And so limitation of itself can indeed be helpful to the organisation within and without the individual’s commodity of life.

In times past, and indeed in some cultures still, a malady, a malaise, is said to be spiritual in nature and causality firstly. And yet any practitioner of the past until now understands that the physical world itself can impact the physical body directly without the predisposing substructures being essential to any given problem.

Life itself is a contest of wills in respect to our will pushing back against the forces that would otherwise break down our very substance and being were it not that our driving forces push back. Life erodes life- constantly breaking apart and rebuilding - and so these complex forces have, if nothing else, a subtle balance and finite reparations in their design.

Particularly in relation to the will an individual is an homogenous being, and even though there are so many compartments and references, the will itself leads us, corresponding with this Holy Spirit being essentially the one.

It is coupled to the Divine motivating Spirit - the Greater Spirit without. And our own wills with which we have sovereignty, determine so much about what becomes of us. Not only in capability but enquiry, and in building our futures to come - it is our holy allowance, to determine so much about ourselves.

And so when the will is unduly suppressed there becomes, in part, a tremendous malfeasance within the individual responding to the chaos that ensures.

And of course one will often crosses another, person to person, justly, unjustly in work or in love, in discipline, or in hardship, fairly or unfairly. The human spirit has an intelligence all of its own. Even without the ego or the operating consciousness, the Spirit divines immediately truth from untruth, right from wrong, fairness from unfairness. If this were not the case the ego or its consciousness could not have any appeal or discrimination in such. This knowing goes a long way to the cooperation of the health and balance aside from the madness perceived.

The spiritual nature of an individual operates out from the perspective of truth and goodness with a sunny disposition understanding that the essential motivation to all life is abundantly good.

When an individual becomes disconcerted it can happen that their own very layers of being are called upon to understand the anomaly they are experiencing.

This is our desire and prayer for peace. That in effect disharmony on any level may be reconciled, and that we may refer to the wisdom of the spirit within as to that place that has only essential goodness, and the stability of eternal health.

The physical world is tumultuous and rarely within its singular sphere can such peace be arrived at, for in truth, it is a constant tangle of forces, of change, and, ever evolving conditions with both creative and destructive impulses from without.

Interestingly the Spiritual worlds themselves do not like structure or definition and beings of all kinds incorporate themselves into dwellings and spaces that are defined, and separate for a time, themselves from others. There are countless homes to which they go to that they make their own. There are spaces that have windows and doors - windows to look out from and doors to leave by - and these spaces so defined actually repel the forces from without and accomodate a quietude within.

Such containment in the Spiritual Worlds helps any entity to define themselves. It is a mode of being which offers a favourable place to establish identity separate to the light filled Cosmos, whist at the same time being a part of its community. Any containment affords us a personal space by which we begin to define who we are.

A dispersement of light or of consciousness or of spirit, or of thought, that travels out and onward, that is not contained, affords the experience of great wonder and oneness, and we do have this continuously to refer to. But there are those times necessary where any individual needs to collect themselves and take stock and know themselves separate to the rest in order to go on to develop or to change, or to simply be.

And so it is that our chosen ‘homes’ are not only for shelter and protection, but a space to define ourselves, for which we seek containment.

Megalomaniacs seek to confine, contain, and change other individuals, to purpose them for their own design. And megalomania itself is quite separate to its outcome or desired outcome one should say. This sickness of soul and conduct, is also borne from lifetimes of wilfulness in which the individual has coupled themselves with entities stronger than they who have in fact possessed them as their own.

Alarmingly, and most woefully, there is not one tyrant or would-be dictator that has not this problem of forced compliance themselves. It is the very men who would control the freedoms of other men that do this because they are no longer free - and are so distant from the recollection within their spirit of what it means. Tyrants and persuaders, are given to the will of a complex of beings, who in universal terms are also not ‘free’ and so it goes. The hierarchy of Evil is a most misfortunate corporation of subjugation.

From this very picture alone one can begin to understand the importance of freedom - the freedom of Man - and how exactly it runs counter-current to those forces that seek to manipulate lives and control and disquiet, to terrorise, and to thieve from communities that could otherwise live their lives in simple joy.

And so there are those who essentially would be free, and those who simply are not.

To varying degrees it can be said that when one wishes to control or override the will of another (who is mature and not a child), that wilfulness of itself is misplaced.

Thy Will be done is the ultimate prayer to save our own souls - for deferring our own will to that of God is ultimately safe and fruitful.
