Cognitive Dissonance and Heart Integrity

February 5, 2017

We always recommend that folks adopt as many different Perspectives as they possibly can, in order to see the World through many different Eyes.  This is very difficult for the mind, which thinks in Either/Ors, and often difficult for the Emotions, which thrive on Validation.  But it is the True Nature of the Heart, because the Heart is much more multi-dimensional than either the mind or the Emotions.

Also, by far the greatest driver of our Lives is the Unconscious, and in the Unconscious, as in Nature, there are no Contradictions, only apparent Paradoxes.  Getting the mind accustomed to Paradox facilitates its Acceptance of the Unconscious and its Cooperation with Nature.  If we Want Ease and Grace in our Life, there’s no better path toward it than Befriending the Unconscious and Nature.

Paradox is the nature of the Yin Gate like the one we’re in this month, where we’re Witnessing the Paradoxical Relationship between Unconscious Fear and Self-Love.  When Fear inhabits the Unconscious and we don’t know it, then we Create what we Fear.  Fear is the Absence of Love.  We need to pursue Fear with the Vigor that we pursue our Soulmate, or Money, so we can make Embracing Fear the hallmark of our Life.  Then we can Create Love, and Create from Love.

Fear is a Trickster and a Master of Disguise.  As you pursue your Fears, the Theta Healing technique, https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/theta/ , is Powerful, because it can show us what we’ve overlooked in our PIAVAs and what Disguises remain for us to Embrace.

The Universe itself is inherently Unknowable, because the mind can’t grasp Infinity in any meaningful way, and the Universe – or at least, the Multiverse, is Limitless.  So the more we get stuck on one Perspective, the less we See of the Universe and the greater the Limitations on what we can Create.  Courting multiple Perspectives loosens up the mind’s grasping at Certainty and the Emotions’ desperation for Validation.

Daniel Scranton and the Arcturian Council offer this suggestion, which I completely agree with…

“In your quest for enlightenment, you often seek out a teaching, a guide, a guru, someone who can help you along your way.  This is helpful for you, but you can also be limited by the teachings of the guru or the guide that you are following.  You can find yourself restricted to only accepting that which fits into the beliefs that you are adhering to.

“We include ourselves in the guides that we are talking to you about.  We don’t want to limit you in any way, and so we don’t want people to only listen to us, especially if that means they are not listening to themselves.  What we would much rather see each of you do is take something from what the teachers and the guides and the gurus offer, but we also would like to see you make those teachings your own.

“We would like to see more of you creating your own form of spirituality.  We invite you to develop your own worldview and to take a little bit from what each of us offers, and then apply those teachings.  Use those teachings.  See what works for you and what does not.  Feel into what resonates with you and let go of the rest.”

And I recommend the rest.

January, Week 3, Start 2A

January 16, 2017

A regular reader writes…

“I have a thought that I’ve had many times.  Is thought random, or pre-planned?  And, when we experience a ‘negative’ thought, why does no one question the origin?  Are there etheric Lizards hurling thoughtforms into our awareness?  The Gnostics said so, that the seed of human error was ‘the mind parasite’ or the ‘foreign installation’ that Don Juan described to Carlos Castenada.  

This is also Buddhism’s biggest oversight (in my humble opinion)…it seeks to end suffering via various concepts, disciplines of the mind, and actions, but never asks about the origin or causes of the “why” of the human condition.  It ignores the deeper mystery in other words.”

Good points all, though I see the World differently.

I certainly agree that the mind is a (useful) parasite, but I don’t think we need to project our Xenophobia on it and make it foreign.  I believe we need to “own” its machinations as we need to “own” all of our Projections and Introjections.  

I’d say that not only are there the equivalent of etheric Lizards hurling all manner of thoughtforms at us, but there are also etheric Amphibians hurling all manner of Emotions at us, all of which are impersonal.  We glom onto and Personalize the ones that resonate with our Unfinished Business.  However, I’d regard all these images as metaphors.  I don’t believe anything coming out of our minds or mouths is ever anything but metaphor.  

There are so many different layers to, and (legitimate) Perspectives on, the Onion of “Reality” that I believe the Onion itself to be ineffable.  Many consider it Illusion.  I don’t usually think directly in those terms (it’s inconvenient to think of my desk as 99.999…% “empty” space), but I do believe that it’s Energy that’s “Real,” and Matter that’s insubstantial, held together by mass hypnosis and Emotional Energy.  Thought and Emotion are “Real” forms of Energy.

When asked why we don’t all see Psychic Energy, my first teacher relayed the metaphor that as children learning colors, we’d point at our mother’s friend’s Energy Body and say “Red!”  Mom would reply, “No honey, that’s a Blue dress.”  We don’t actually need etheric Lizards if we need to attribute Cause.

As for Buddhism, I’m quite sure that the omission of Why is purposive.  Why is the occupation of Monkey Mind, while Buddhism strives for Beginner’s Mind or “Don’t Know,” which is similar to the state of Awe and Wonder that I often refer to as Perpetual Curiosity.  Prior to making Conclusions, Curiosity like Unconditional Love eschews Judgment, so I consider it “next to Godliness.”  Metaphors are just word pictures; Conclusions, Certainties, Dogmas, and Either/Ors are Judgments.  

Now, I hope everyone notices that this is an Either/Or Judgment.  A better alternative would be…

“When you see someone making a choice that you would not make for yourself, let it go.  Show that person love and compassion, but do not feel the need to correct him or her.  Instead, be the leader that you are and the wayshower that you always intended to be by choosing for yourself the path of love, compassion, and unity.”  — http://danielscranton.com/the-way-of-the-wayshower-∞the-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/ 

But it’s a Discernment I use to differentiate Spirituality from Politics – Spirituality is Both/And; Either/Or is Politics.  I find that this particular Either/Or Judgment is a very useful Heuristic as a bs meter.  A Heuristic is a methodology “that solves a problem quickly but is not certain to arrive at an optimal solution.”

As Michael Roads says, “It Is What It Is.”  Not more nor less.  The rest is just mindstuff.  I often refer to Cause and Effect as The Great God Causan Defect.  It’s a challenge to think in terms other than Cause and Effect.  A heresy even!  It’s merely our Patriarchal Programming, mass hypnosis.  See if you can go a day – or ten minutes – without seeing the World through the Glass Darkly of Cause and Effect.

Jung for one postulated an alternative sort of Relationship between Observations which describes many aspects of “Reality” far better than Causan Defect (Jung and Pauli, The Interpretation of Nature and the Psyche).  We see what we Expect to see.  Seeing the World without Expectations would be hugely Confusing – that is, Growthful!  But not easy.

And there’s no sense in which Buddhism “ignores the deeper mystery,” quite the contrary.  Buddhism believes that the Mystery lies not in the mind but in the Heart.  It sees the mind as Destroyer of Mystery.  The Matriarchy agreed.

Why Are We Doing This Again?

A note from the Arcturians on what all this Shedding is about…

http://danielscranton.com/your-galactic-selves-∞the-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

At the end there they mention Off-Planet folks.  Don’t fall for any mass-media reports about Off-Planet folks.  There are those who Believe that once Epidemics and Vaccinations and four-hour erections no longer Scare enough people, the Lizards will cook up an Alien Invasion to amp up their mass-media advertising revenue.  No Blame, it’s just another potentially useful Perspective.

You can speak directly with Off-Planet folks anytime you want – just Suspend Disbelief, PIAVA it, Change the Subject, and Meditate.  You’ll probably meet your Kin, and maybe even remember how you got here.  After all, we just heard from folks who hail from Arcturus.  Arcturus Lives around 25 Libra; got any natal planets there?  Jupiter just happens to be amplifying Haumea (Rebirth) there as we speak.

I know, Suspending Disbelief may be the hardest part, but it’s a very Powerful Practice, and a Skill that you very much want to develop to increase your Embrace of Paradox – which, as you recall, we’re studying intensely at the moment, Embracing our Unconscious Fears, in our Yin Gates.  

If the Channel for Off-Planet information wasn’t ourself, should we Trust it?  Ask your Heart, your Heart knows your own Truth.  Double-check for Fear – if you’re coming from Fear, you aren’t in Truth.  Tap it Out.  Don’t let commercial television – or the Internet – be your intermediary, and be careful to read or hear Channelings from Off-Planet (or On!) with your Heart, not your Mind.

And a note from Yeshua and Mary about our Brilliance, Gorgeousness, Talent, and Fabulosity…

That’s precisely why we’re doing this.  Thanks to https://eraoflight.com/ for the clues to finding this information.

Another Intense Week IV

November 16, 2016

Astrologically, this week is one of the more prominent with regard to “an increase of chaotic events,” and “objective” Reality has a good share of them to match.  So this is timely…

Here’s a rather fascinating interview with germinal former Findhorn co-director David Spangler, very worth two hours of your time…

An excellent exercise in Cognitive Dissonance – the ability to hold Contradictory Beliefs in Consciousness at the same time without internal Conflict – an essential Skill for the Future and Present.

And an interesting development in the US election…
