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.

~ Destiny ~

"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?

The Earth Uplift Legend


So here we all are, witness and perhaps even midwife to this new born age of Aquarius arising from the greed & decay of the dying Piscean paradigm.  Halcyon days to be sure; in fact with everything currently boiling over in so many places... things are right now at about the same fever pitch as the 1960's; and the great awakening is adding millions of souls to the spiritual path.  Increasingly we are feeling more like lobsters in the pot every day as chaos rampages unopposed across planet earth; and collectively we wonder is this all there is?...or does something stir un-noticed in the background as we struggle to keep our wits?  Is all this evil truly unopposed?  Things aren't always as they seem!

There's a reason we're called seekers.

The spiritual path is a funny thing, it isn't the same for everyone in some ways, and yet in other ways it is.  For instance there are a great number of different things that may activate a spiritual awakening in a person, and indeed many ways to walk that path once we have our bearings; but the process of getting our bearings is somewhat universal.  We ask similar questions and seek similar answers in our effort to regain both balance and perspective, and it ain't easy - if it was everyone would be doing it.

This modern age of wireless internet is like a double edged sword for the recently awakened initiate seeking answers and truth.  On the one hand you have access to virtually all information in human knowledge at your fingertips; which those of us who've been doing this awhile really envy.  On the other hand there is such a huge amount of information available that some folks are drowning in it.  There is a lot to take in.

For us early bloomers it was a very different world; not only was there far less information readily accessible, but very often there were few others to discuss spiritual subjects with.  It's often called the great mystery, and so gave rise to the various mystery schools over time.  I can't say I've ever been terribly drawn to any of those oracles of occult learning; nothing in particular against them, just not my vibe.  Likewise, I've never felt the urge to go study at the knee of this guru or that mystic; but rather just to follow my own heart, and that still, small voice within.  Libraries and old book stores, that's my vibe.
"When the student is ready, the teacher will appear"

Even though you may eschew gurus and teachers, rest assured that when you least expect it one may show up in your life anyway, to walk the path with you a while and share some wisdom.  That is exactly how it happened for me.  It was back in 1984 and I was freshly returned to the Seattle area after living in Alaska the previous 12 years.  I was working as a counselor back then, and in my free time I hung around the various metaphysical bookstores & new age centers throughout the area.  After a while I noticed I kept seeing this one native American fellow at almost every bookstore or function I attended; and on one such encounter he walks over to me and said; "Hi, I'm Markus, why are you following me?"  His face was so friendly, and his eyes so kind, I could only reply that  I was thinking the same exact thing about him.  At 6'2" he was an imposing figure but those kind eyes said he was not only peaceful, but at peace as well. 

There was an instant kismet, a mutual recognition that we had some work to do together, and had maybe even done so before.  We became friends so quickly I never really noticed much when he also became a spiritual mentor.  Markus and his wife Jen were also new to the Seattle area, having recently arrived from California.  His primary occupation was that of being a crystal smuggler.  They would travel down to Arkansas, and sometimes to Columbia to dig crystals and semi-precious stones; then bring them back to the west coast to sell them.  It turned out that Markus and I had several areas of common interest which acted like a cement to the friendship.   It was very nice having someone to discuss spiritual matters with, especially when that interchange often expanded my understanding of the great mystery.   

"An ego weary of the pleasures of this world is ready
 to take on spirit, in a meaningful, healthy and well grounded way."
                                                                           ~ Soren Dreier ~

The following summer Markus and his wife Jen were planning their annual sabbatical retreat to Mt. Shasta; and took me totally off guard when they asked if I'd like to join them!!  No phones, no schedules or workshops; just a week up on the mountain with mother nature.  considering I'd never been to the famous mystic mountain before, there was no way I could decline the invitation.  Because their work included a lot of traveling; they drove a rather nice van conversion which we used for the Shasta trip.  We arrived in the town of Mt. Shasta about 2:00 PM, giving us plenty of time to hit the store for last minute provisions and ice.  It was late in June, with the last vestige of winter being the snow up on the summit, and everything below that was in full bloom.  We followed the road from town as it wound its way up the mountain.  The scenery was both breathtaking and somewhat dangerous, as guard rails were few & far between; and one could rather easily go sailing right off into empty air while admiring the view.  Markus drove the van all the way to the highest, and last campground; Panther Meadows, at about 7500 ft. elevation.  Pulling into the small parking area we saw just two other vehicles, the place was virtually empty!

Jen busied herself setting up the kitchen area next to the large picnic table as Markus & I set up both tents and gathered firewood.  There was just one other campsite occupied, the one closest to the parking area, which we couldn't even see from where we were located.  As the afternoon melted away a group of hikers returned from the mountain and drove off downhill; except for the other campers we had the place to ourselves.  My friend & mentor was always a mysterious sort of fellow, and I was looking forward to spending this time with him, even knowing as I did that school was still in session, and this was a field trip!

As darkness descended on panther meadows we had a roaring campfire going, and I found myself lost in the reverie of watching the sparks & tiny embers float skyward till they blended in with the star field above us.  I don't recall how long I was doing that, but was pulled gently back into the moment by Markus' hand on my shoulder.  When I looked over to acknowledge him, Markus chuckles and says: "Pretty cool; every time the fire pops, and sends up those sparklers, stored sunlight is escaping back into the environment...but if you really want to see something cool, grab a lawn chair and follow me."  Moments later, with lawn chair in tow I followed him down the pathway that led out to the meadows.  A few minutes later we left the forest canopy behind us as we entered the meadows.  The area of open space was bigger than several football fields in total, with the milky way providing a glorious vibrant star field overhead.  

When we were more or less in the center of the main meadow Markus plopped down in his folding chair, facing the nearby summit of Mt. Shasta, saying only, "Best seats in the house."  Settling into my chair, I knew we were here to see a show; it was just a matter of waiting for the curtain to go up.  Before long Jen joined us; and then not much later, a few more folks showed up, settling in 20 or so yards from us.  Over the next half hour or so more people wandered in; some with chairs, others with big picnic blankets; and panther meadows began taking on the look of a block party.  Located more than halfway up the mountain, panther meadows affords a truly inspirational panoramic view of Mt. Shasta's snow covered summit, best seats indeed.

The show began perhaps an hour or so later as a pair of blinking red UFO's proceeded to overfly the meadow on their way to where ever they were going.  They were each the size of a Volkswagen beetle and maybe 150 feet directly above us - totally silent.  A while later someone spotted several objects/lights maneuvering high up above the mountain.  We watched these distant lights flutter about like fireflies for a few minutes before they too flew off to parts unknown.  Heads on a swivel, anticipation & adrenalin running high, never knowing what part of the massive expanse of sky to watch for the next arrival.  Somewhere along the way a couple more people joined our little group, so we made like pioneers and circled the lawn chairs to cover the entire sky with eyes.  Over the next four hours we saw so many UFO's in the skies above the mountain we became downright blasé  unless they were low & slow, and we saw several of that sort as well.  It was sometime after midnight when we were treated to the main attraction.  A flight of five disc shaped craft suddenly appeared from behind the mountain.  They were each about thirty feet in diameter, giving off a light bluish glow, & again absolutely silent.  For the next 15 minutes these five craft put on a low level acrobatic air show that had everyone in the meadow on their feet, then they all lined up in formation flying west to east and headed towards the summit.  When the lead craft was near the top, it preformed a flapjack back flip over the summit and disappeared behind the mountain.  One by one the remaining four craft duplicated the maneuver...then they were gone.

As if he had a printed program for the evenings entertainment, Markus gets up, folds up his chair and says; "Well that's it, show's over for tonight - won't be no more."  He was like that a lot, knowing things would happen before they did...always showing up or calling just as I'd think a thought about him, downright spooky.  He always reminded me of a shaman because he knew more about life and living than most folks seem to.  Where nearly everyone in society is preoccupied with getting, Markus was preoccupied with giving, and because of that he was a natural people magnet.  That's why it didn't surprise me to see several of the people from the meadow wander into our campsite, and join us warming up by the fire.  Naturally we all began talking about the awesome air show we'd all witnessed, and the conversation turned to the subject of aliens on other worlds, and what are they doing here.  There were by now maybe eight of us around the fire and of course everyone had their own take on the alien mystery.  As the subject was being tossed around, Markus just sat there taking it all in until someone asked what he thought of it all. 

Sensing that we were all about to hear something equal to what we'd just seen; I switched on my tape recorder and leaned over to toss a couple fresh logs on the fire.  As the growing flames chased some of the shadow from his face, Markus looks at the group of people gathered around our fire; making eye contact with each of us, as if assessing us somehow, then lets loose a half laugh, & says "Sure...why not?  What we saw here tonight is nothing extraordinary...it happens all the time in places like this.  They really don't care if we see them.  Once you see them it's very difficult to un-see it and you must adjust your picture of reality to include them."

"For us to understand what these ships represent, we must see the overall big picture first which is very difficult to do being as we all agree to a mandatory memory wipe previous to each incarnation on this planet. The reason for the memory wipe is simple really because if we incarnated with full knowledge of why we came we would skip over all the mundane stuff and accomplish that mission so we could return home straightaway.  You see...it isn't just about doing the right thing at the right time...we must also do it for the right reasons!  Anyway...back to the big picture...which is the reason for the memory wipe.  To begin with we are all pan-galactic, multi-dimensional star people who don't even come from this planet originally.  This planet, and all experiences and events on it are but a school!"

"Because I already know the first question most of you will have I'll  go ahead and answer it...We are enrolled in this full time school as a kind of experiment in consciousness...to see if we can be isolated away from spirit on a negative polarity 3rd dimensional world...and still find our way back to where we came from.  Everyone here on earth volunteered to do this...it has been going on for a very, very long time and most of us have actually had several incarnations here before this current one.  The universe has a consciousness of its own which is called by many names...I just call it Source, and it is never one to waste effort or resource...so all of these incarnations also serve a higher function at the same time."

"Wanna know why "Star Trek" was cancelled...because it was hitting way too close to the truth.  In this galaxy of billions of stars there are a great many civilizations advanced enough for space travel, with technologies that would appear as magic to us.  We saw some of them tonight right out there in the meadow.  Many of these advanced civilizations have created a Confederation of like-minded races who endeavor to serve as a force for good.  Because Source seeks equanimity and balance there must also exist an opposite polarity seeking opposite ends.  In our rather limited perspective, we see it only as the battle between good and evil which is an illusion like everything else on the earth school...but that is a story for another campfire."

"Back when earth was much younger, when humans as we know them evolved here; the confederation deemed the planet's indigenous people should be left alone to evolve however nature directed...so they designated earth as a 'Hands Off' planet.   Predictably, there were races not aligned with the confederation who had ideas of their own regarding earth.  The confederation of course monitored earth to verify that no outside forces were interfering with the inhabitants, I guess you could call it a blockade.  This was necessary because in the Orion star system there exist some races who thought earth was the perfect place to conduct some genetic experiments."

"The confederation is represented by races from the Pleiades cluster, Arcturus, Altair and various other systems, while the Orion syndicate is comprised primarily of reptilian races, Archons, and subordinate races like the Greys from Zeta Reticuli and a few others.  The Orions began violating the hands off policy figuring that the confederation worlds wouldn't go to war over this one little planet full of monkeys, and they were right. The Orions knew that as long as they didn't lay claim to earth and begin moving in, the confederation would not take direct action against them...and so they only violated the blockade every so often, content to play the long game."
"As time passed, of course the Orions began escalating their operations, and their interference with humans...enough to throw the whole works out of balance.  The confederation meanwhile had anticipated such, and came up with a long range plan of their own, to negate the harm done and restore balance to earth; it is known as the earth uplift mission...and many of us currently incarnated are part of that mission.  Rather than igniting a galactic war, the confederation chose to conduct a kind of rescue mission that would play out gradually over a great span of time.  The warriors who volunteered for the mission would not be landing in spacecraft, but instead they would arrive the way all humans do, thru the birth-death cycle we call reincarnation.  The volunteers numbered in the thousands and took on special training to ensure their success.  When all was ready this first wave of lightworkers began incarnating on earth.  Some would mature to be teachers, others musicians, and artists, and philosophers, and singers.  When activated at maturity these volunteer warriors of light would begin their life as way showers, each one a representative of Source...showing others the way back home."

"A generation later when the starseeds were ready to activate and go forth...there was a problem, a very big one.  Fully two thirds of the starseeds had failed to activate when programmed to.  They were alive...just not responding to their programming, and not activating.  The mission planners had under-estimated the traumatic effects of unforeseen social and environmental dangers, which locked the volunteers into survival mode; by-passing their spiritual programming for the mission.  They were lost.  The mission simply could not succeed with only a third of the volunteers activated.  The mission planners went back to work.  They soon had twice the number of volunteers being readied for deployment, and took extra measures to protect them from the things that crippled the first wave."

"It was now obvious that whatever the Orions and Archons were up to had greatly amplified earths negative polarity, and sent the majority of volunteers into full-on survival mode, neutralizing them.  The second wave of light warriors would have to be of sterner stuff to thrive, succeed, and achieve their mission.  They were armed with specific encodements of sound and light that would help to re-activate those of the first wave; and inspire many, many others to awaken from spiritual slumber as well.  There was more urgency with the deployment of the second wave, because in a very real sense time was running out...there was a deadline for the mission which would arrive in less than a century; known as the great shift of the ages.  The lightworkers of the second wave were programmed to be more pro-active than their predecessors, less passive, more aggressive, more tenacious and unwilling to quit or surrender.  Basically the second wave were the rabble rousers needed to shake things up and change things around.  They would seek to level the playing field for all, so that all could be free and awake."

"There would be no time for another rescue wave after this, if the earth uplift mission failed to ignite a spiritual revolution - the evolution of humans would not advance.  Even with its negative polarity; earth was never destined to be a planet of warfare and slavery, the Orion gang turned it into that with their interference and genetic manipulation.  A school such as earth needs a negative polarity because without the resistance from negativity, no growth is possible.  One who is never challenged never becomes strong.  It's the same principle as why electricity works...without some resistance on the line, no current is possible! More than anything else the objective of this second wave of light warriors was to inspire enough people to attain critical mass for the great awakening necessary to defeat the Orion agenda.  In order to support the second wave, the confederation saw it would have to create parity with the Orions, and match them move for move.  This is why both sides maintain starship bases hidden around the earth and beneath the oceans.  The ships we saw tonight were the good guys and Mt. Shasta is one of their oldest bases."

"Rather than an all out galactic war the conflict plays out right here on earth as a war for our very souls.  I know it doesn't seem like a war right now because everything is tightly controlled to maintain the illusion and keep the masses asleep.  By the time your children are grown this world will resemble the battlefield it is, and people will be awakening by the millions as the illusion falls apart.  Instead of keeping our spiritual lives private we need to be sharing our knowledge and beliefs with others...it's the only way to reclaim this world: one person at a time, one heart at a time.  Any questions?"

It was hard to tell what made the bigger impression on those of us gathered around that campfire; seeing the aerial ballet the spacecraft put on, or the background information Markus had just shared on the big picture.  It was hard to say; because everyone around the fire had the same expression on their faces they had when seeing the ships.  Those who had joined us after the air show did have questions, and we all spent some time discussing them.  After a while Marcus suggested because it was so late it might be best to adjourn; and allow our subconscious to assimilate the new information.  With that the little ad hoc group broke up and our visitors drove back down the mountain.  Markus, Jen and I remained up on panther meadows for almost another week, enjoying our wilderness retreat and delving deeper into the great mystery. 

The day we were packing up to leave; Markus asked me why I decided to leave Alaska after so long, and why I chose to relocate in the Seattle area.  Suspecting this was another teaching moment, I was eager to show my mentor that I knew exactly why.  I told him it was time for me to go from studying the spiritual path, to making it a way of life.  I wanted to apply all I'd learned as a way to live on the planet instead of regarding it as a hobby; and Alaska was simply too spiritually asleep of an environment for that.  I chose the Seattle area because of its reputation as a hub of "new age" activity; and, because the geography was quite similar to that of Alaska

Silently nodding his agreement, Markus looked up and said; "Seattle is a teaching vortex and it's drawing people to it to prepare them for the times ahead.  People now being drawn to the Seattle area will learn new skills as healers and teachers; then go forth into the world to teach others what they've learned.  It is the earth uplift mission working right before our eyes, and there are many such teaching vortex hubs doing the same thing.  Just as you were drawn to Seattle; in time you will feel drawn to migrate somewhere else.  At the time it may not make sense, even so it's best to listen when spirit whispers, it will never lead you astray!"

A few weeks after the Mt. Shasta trip Marcus & Jen headed back to Columbia for another load of crystals.  They had flown back with several crates of specimens, and Marcus called to ask if I'd like to help him unload & inventory.  Instead of paying me for my time, Markus just said if there was something in the load that spoke to me I should take it home; there was, so I did.  We had the same arrangement every time they returned with a load; and eventually I even went along on a couple of trips.  A few years later, exactly as Markus had predicted; spirit began nudging me to move; to Utah - and open a crystal shop in the heart of the Mormon stronghold! ... but that is a story for another campfire.
