If Your Thoughts And Intentions Can Do This To An Apple, Imagine What They Can Do To Your Body — EWAO

Following is proof to what many of us have been saying about the connection of all things and the power of our thoughts over them, individually as well as corporately. Talking kindly to your plants, hugging a tree, sharing only good thoughts . . . this is not silly stuff. This is absolutely essential stuff that we should ALL be doing, and BETTER be doing if we desire any actual change in the direction this country is going.

If I were given the opportunity to teach my grown kids one thing over. I would teach them at the earliest age about the building blocks of their own abilities and I would lighten up on the religious stuff. I would teach all three of them that they are powerful spiritual entities bearing great responsibility towards the workings on this planet. I would teach them that their lives will be a direct result of their everyday thoughts and that there is no excuse or way out for them. When they choose evil thinking they suffer evil things. When they choose good, they receive good things. It is really that simple.

I must remind myself every morning during my meditation time of this very truth, and I must do all I can to remember NOT to strike back and think evil against anybody. Though I often fail I must continually remind myself every moment of every day, to be kind in every circumstance. . . and so should you.

You might already know that your thoughts are powerful. But one thing is to hear about it, and another is to understand how your thoughts actually create your reality! An excellent documentary called What the Bleep Do We Know!? explains the power behind our thoughts. It explores how matter is not solid in the way…

The After Life . . .

the afterlife

After having a conversation on the internet with a couple of born again Christians about the afterlife I began to wonder how many people there are on this planet who believe the party line when it comes to Heaven and Hell and the afterlife. I figure there are probably zillions, but I’m not one of them. Even during my ‘balls to the wall’ Christian days I never believed a lot of the mainline Christian doctrine. So, what am I saying? Simply that from the very beginning of my search for reality, the Christian religion has led me down a steep and winding trail.  

I came impulsively into religion because I was seeking meaning and safety in a life that was quite frankly steam rolling out of control. I was an American therefore I chose Christianity. Had I been born and bred in Afghanistan I would have chosen the Muslim religion. Born elsewhere I may have become Hindu . . . Buddhist . . . etc.

Now, on the social level I have no doubt the church is an important charitable organization. It does many worthy things such as feeding the poor and homeless. It instills hope in depressed and dependant people. It is a beacon of light to the drunk, the druggy, the true believer . . . and so on. I honor her for that, but . . . by taking an exclusivity stance on truth and reality . . . by saying it’s her way or the highway to Hell she’s turned a lot of people off, especially the young, and us old folks who have enough experience under our belts can see the fallacies in that kind of belief system.

On the spiritual level I believe the church to be a revolving door. A door  that forces you all the days of your life, to move endlessly within her small and exclusive circle. If you have a question that deserves a deeper look and that question is outside church doctrine, you are silenced by the ‘you must have faith’ or the ‘God moves in mysterious ways’ clause. I had too many questions and it didn’t take long to find out there was no room for me at the inn.

 One of my questions was this fairy tale story on the afterlife . . . Hell is a lake of fire, your eternal destination if you are a sinner. Heaven is a perfect place where you sit with Jesus, eat all day and walk on streets paved in gold for exercise.  

That’s what we have been taught right? Yeah, but maybe that ain’t the way it is at all, maybe death and the afterlife is entirely different than any of that, maybe you haven’t escaped the curse of Hell just by saying “I believe” . . .  maybe instead, you will find yourself quietly screaming as you awaken to the afterlife in a dark and dreary place you cannot escape, no matter how hard you cry out for Jesus and Joel Olsteen, or the pope, or pastor Bob. Maybe the dark place, no matter how hard you try, will remain quiet to your fervent prayers. . . maybe, Who really knows?

Well actually there have been thousands of people who have had an out of body experience and some who have actually gone into the other dimensions and returned to tell about it. What they have to say is astounding in it’s clarity. Warning notice: . . .  If your glass is already filled or you are sitting comfortably within a religious bubble. . .  you might want to stop here because you may get offended if you don’t.          

I think when it comes to the afterlife, the bible is close in its assumption, but it leaves a lot to interpretive imagination, and the church has pretty much made up the rest of it. The sad part is that all these assumptions could be very dangerous for you as they will keep you from the realization that after we depart the death bed we are totally responsible for where we end up.

(My) reality is that I am in essence a multidimensional spiritual being that has chosen to abide upon this planet for a period of time so that I can experience/learn something. When my borrowed earth body wears out and begins its return back to the natural elements, I will revert back to my soul body and I become just like I was before my incursion. I will return to the astral plane and take up residency upon the same vibrational frequency I was on when my flesh body died away.

Imagine a guitar that consists of six strings with each one tuned to a certain vibration. Each vibration is on a different level high to low. We too, exist on a vibrational scale. Back in the hippie days when a person was an asshole he/she was said to give off bad vibes and those bad vibes made people wary while a person who gave off good vibes made people feel comfortable.

Did you ever walk into a room where a marital battle was taking place and feel the charged atmosphere even though both parties were now faking marital bliss? Bad vibes. Or meet a person that even though he was smiling and gracious, gave off bad vibes you could feel two feet away?

Sure you have, we all have. Fact is it is impossible for a person vibrating on a higher, or lower frequency NOT to subsciously manifest the reality of that frequency.     

Bottom line is that as we live on this planet we are now in the process of creating our after life. We are creators . . . we create our tomorrows by the thoughts and actions that we take today. Nobody gets away free and clear from their creative actions . . . no body.

And when we die? We go exactly to the vibrational frequency  we have created while here on Earth. . . . If we were self serving and evil we end up vibrating on a dark and lonely frequency for as long as it takes to raise ourselves up and out onto a higher plane of existence . . . the higher you go the more profound and wonderful your existence will become. That, in my opinion, is the reality behind the false promises religion has for us.

As we raise our vibration good things happen to us . . . if we follow Christian teaching good things also happen to us . . . BUT if we follow church doctrine only and become a chosen one full of self righteousness and harshly judgemental? Guess what?

I’ll stop here and introduce you to a little old man who has a great story to tell about consciousness and the Astral plane and the many dimensional levels of life upon it. . . .  J

This is only one part of a four part interview . . . the others are on YouTube if you choose to watch them.

The following video is a further explanation to the question . . . Who am I?

What Can I Do? . . .

kindness

Ok, I understand what’s going on in the world. I even somewhat understand what needs to be done to remedy the situation . . . but I am just one person, what in the world can I do about it? How can one person have any affect at all when it comes to real honest to God change in this society?

Well, that’s the question we all ask ourselves when we consider this stuff. Who needs even one more prophet of doom wandering the halls of cyberspace anyways?

Truth is nobody wants your wisdom . . . nobody wants your knowledge . . . nor does anybody particularly need it. (assuming you actually have any to begin with)

They have all spent a vast amount of time building up the particular facade you are now attempting to destroy, and are actually quite annoyed when you begin chopping away at it. Truth is most people find it much easier to blame others for their problems anyways, so forget about it.

People in this country crave diversion, they flock to it like beetles running to a freshly laid dog turd. You want popularity? You want a large readership on your blog? Stick to the simple stuff, throw in as much sex as you can, and you will someday become king of blog hill. (more…)

Free Your Mind . . .

free mind

This blog has two goals. One is to lay out a personal plan for meaningful change and what it will take for us to do it. The other is to reveal, in as simple a way as possible, the reality of just what sort of fix we, as well as this entire planet are in.

We all want to raise our families in peace and freedom. We should all realize by now that relying on a governmental system, regardless of what it is called, or a religion, regardless of what it is called, or anything else, regardless of what it is called, will not do the trick for us.

These entities are not even capable of creating a just and lasting change in the human condition. They just can’t do it. God knows they have been trying and promising change throughout modern history, and none of them have yet to succeed to any measured degree that I can see.

Don’t you think it’s about time to shift gears and realize that any lasting change MUST come from within us? That we are personally responsible for our actions and are the only ones with the power to change ourselves? (more…)

Open Your Heart . . .

OpenHeart

Everybody at some time in their life has a moment of truth, a life changing experience where they begin to see things differently than before it happened. Sometimes it is a huge catastrophic event, while others it may result from the simplest of things.

I have had a few monster awakenings in my rather chaotic life, but the following is way strange for a guy like me, at least for the guy that I perhaps pretended to be. . . .

who

Recently I read a story about a women who had a near death experience. She died of cancer, went over, came back healed and now tells her story about it. She says above all else just be yourself. You are perfect just the way you are . . . the only judgement from the other side is that which you lay upon yourself . . . that’s it . . . just be yourself. Her name is Anita Moorjani if you’re interested.

I want to be myself. . . but

Who am I?

Am I the tough kid who was born in a housing project that learned to fight and to trust nobody except my friends by the time I was tall enough to reach the doorknob and escape from the hellhole called family? . . . no

Am I the kid who grew up wanting to be an athlete but never made it beyond a third place finish? . . . no

Am I the bad student who had a 130 IQ but always had his girlfriend do his homework for him and who loved to cheat on tests? . . . no (more…)

What To Do?

back to the land

What do representatives of the largest corporations and governments in the world talk about when they sit around the conference table? Well, from what I’ve been hearing, these groups that operate outside the boundary of public scrutiny are actually the guys who create national and foreign policy for the country. All those guys you see daily on TV? . . .  including the president himself? . . . are merely front men.

Hillary Clinton, during a recent interview, was saying how happy she was to hear that the Council On Foreign Relations (CFR) had just opened a Washington office . . . “Now I won’t have to go to New York to find out what I am supposed to do.” she said and laughed.

Dumb me, here I thought the president was the guy who told her what to do. But then, if you think about it, he is only in office eight years max while these people have been around since the sixties. . .

Who are they? Check out their website and you’ll find a long ‘whose who’ list of the rich, famous, and powerful members that you will recognize. These guys operate quietly in the shadows, but don’t hide from the fact that they do so. They are the shadow government. (more…)

Vulnerability . . .

vulneable

As a kid growing up in the Projects to be vulnerable meant to be weak, and weakness did not fit our self image any more than a dress or a pair of high heeled shoes would have. Sissies were vulnerable, chicken shits were vulnerable. . . . tough guys like us were born into this world in a defensive position. We laughed at vulnerability.

I remember being on the playground with my friends one day watching my beloved Fritzy run into the highway and get hit by a car. I remember the whole thing, though it was 65 years ago, as if it were yesterday. I remember cursing the dog for being so stupid. I remember leaving my friends, walking back to the apartment, stepping into a closet, closing the door behind me . . . and crying my eyes out.

I loved that damn dog, but tears were not shed in the projects. I never cried in public . . . never. I still have a problem with the vulnerability of crying. I will run out of my fortress to save, to heal, to help, to even get injured or killed . . . but never to reveal my weakness. (more…)

Relationships

rrelationships

In my life I have had many friends of both sexes . . . from my childhood in the housing project, to the military, to the hippy days, to my many years of wandering and wondering, to today where I have few friends at all.

Today I am an old man who spends most of his time alone. If it weren’t for my wife there would be little contact with humanity at all . . . sad I suppose to some, but not so sad to me. People fear getting old and irrelevant like they fear the plague. But I have to say, “Man, I am digging it.” Today I feel more in touch, more connected to the circle of life than ever before.

My friends are still with me, as are my few enemies, but they now live in memory and dreams of past experience . . . and love? . . . well, when love was an emotional experience for me I gave or withheld it at will. It wasn’t until lately, when I found myself alone, that I began to see and to realize that love is not only an emotion, but it is also a state of being. The deeper experience hides from view when constantly being focused by emotion, and only comes to life when one steps back into quiet reflection and gives it the freedom it needs to spread across the entire spectrum of life. This view is a very beautiful place, but can only be experienced out of earshot of the constant babbling of men . . .

And hey, what the hell, if I still need a little bit of emotion I have four dogs, two cats, a wonderful wife, a healthy life, and a whole woods full of critters and creatures surrounding me to bestow my love upon.

So sometime when you’re driving by the old man sitting all alone on his porch staring off into oblivion and you begin to feel sorry for him . . . don’t . . . some of us have actually found what we have been mad dashing across the planet all those years looking for.

 

 

Dreamland

dreamland

There are a few things that all men, rich or poor, black or white, aborigine or modern, have in common. They all have the mental capacity to dream . to imagine . to perceive . to project . and to promote all that dreaming as reality. That’s why we have problems with each other, we all think OUR version of reality is the one true reality. The others? . . . well they are dreamers.

Another thing we all have in common is the fact the we are locked into a universal system that demands movement. Nothing stands still, everything is either growing or decaying. Dreams without action will not work. We can imagine and hope and project and perceive all we want, but without action the fruits of idleness will only create decay and criminality.

We want something free? . . . nothing is free! Anything freely given without the need for hard work is probably going to either be a false religion or a diseased seed, if not immediately, then soon. High flying words are just that . . . in order to land they must be coaxed to the ground and watered and fed daily. That means in order to bear the fruit of your dreams YOU must work for your reality to become anything more than a shell of empty promises emanated from a Pied Piper leader looking to walk you over the cliff. (I could go on a huge rant here about American politics and religion but I will save you the agony) (more…)
