Bigger Questions w Ron James and Zen Benefiel

Time Dilation?

The timing of our efforts and expectation of results don’t necessarily coincide with the intentions and process of unfolding information. Gaps happen, right? Non-linear and non-local activity have to be taken into consideration now. Timelines aren’t our own. The interview at the end of this article was recorded in 2015 for Bigger Questions. I drove to LA with the excitement of sharing some long-suffering that offered a new world of experience on just about every level you can think, yet it wasn’t time yet.

Seems newcomers to the scene express their passion and purpose with some overblown self-importance that does more to obfuscate the truth and create diminished returns than they realize. Their obsessions cause miscommunication and responses from immaturity and insecurity rather than vulnerability and wisdom, resulting in projections of arrogance and self-righteous behavior that only reveals they are the creators of it. It isn’t their fault. They are young  in the field and inexperienced.

It’s a very small view in the eyes of a bigger questions and a bigger picture; feeling important. Pushing and pulling energy is not ‘the way.’ Personally and professionally I have a piece of advice I give to my clients and cohorts. Do something bigger than you are and share it. Be part of the big picture, not the community market. That’s what my ‘contacts’ are most disturbed by – lack of action, initiative and understanding of why it is necessary as a demonstration of an evolving consciousness.

Fallacious Realities

bigger questions

Masks in Nature? Really? Oh, it’s a smart virus… it will hunt you down. Scientific research shows masks are ineffective yet the narrative and actions appease our fears of each other????

2020 sure has been an interesting year with many bigger questions; most of them suppressed. Amidst the mud-slinging and name-calling we’ve also been witnesses to how marginalized a global society can be in the face of a fallacious reality narrative that has no other purpose than a global social experiment. Expertise and information, instinct and common sense have been thrown asunder with censorship and removals from the web.

Good and evil are certainly in the discussion of how a few have manipulated the many once again. If one takes the time for discovery and compares what is still available with the narrative being pushed on the world, it’s fallaciousness becomes clearly obvious and present. Don’t believe it can happen? Read The Lucifer Principle.

The question is how do our relationships with each other and our visitors engage practical and pragmatic results? If they don’t, then what good are they, really? Governments have known about them for decades, and there are plenty of cases with proof even before the classified videos were released recently. With how the public has responded to the fallacious narrative, do we think that things would be better if they suddenly showed up? NOT

2020 – A 2112 of Our Own Making

bigger questions

Dystopian Future?
We think not… music frees the soul. Ignition pending…

We’ve been in our caves for most of 2020, figuring out how to cope, how to navigate, how to survive the economic devastation, and how to come up with the bigger questions that matter. We seek to blame at length yet don’t bother to ask why it is happening in the first place. Is there a group so able to manufacture and control a world gone mad, or use it as an excuse to tighten things up with further personal rights removals?

By 2112, the world is controlled by the “Priests of the Temples of Syrinx”, who determine the content of all reading matter, songs, pictures – every facet of life. A man discovers a guitar and learns to play different music. When he goes to present this to the priests of the Temples, they destroy the guitar. Our instruments are our minds and bodies, and those who discover deeper connections are still seen as threats to society.

We have a choice, though, and we are irrevocably powerful in numbers. Those numbers have to be in agreement with at least simple tenets of progress into the next decade. We’ve got the knowledge, skill sets and talent to make sweeping changes in a very short amount of time – IF – we learn to work together toward a common good.

2021 – A New View with Possibilities and Bigger Questions

We know that compassion and understanding are key features of an evolving consciousness, even with limited experience. We’ve learned how to plagiarize, polarize and punitize our natural desires for community and trust. Our symbolic masks have become exposed and real. The narrative for 2020 has demonstrated just how marginalized and manipulatable a society can be. Let’s not judge them for that, please.

What we need is a compassionate understanding for the condition and perhaps a solution to raise the awareness naturally, without pummeling others with information to try to get them to understand or getting slapped up side of the head with a cosmic 2×4 for our own lack of awareness. How do we do that? Let’s start with the 6 Ps… Patience, Perseverance, Persistence, Passion, Purpose and, most of all, Practice.

The interview below has its own unique high-strangeness. It was lost for several years, never seeing the digital scene, or any other for that matter. Oddly enough, it was found recently though still incomplete in post-production. During the editing, their computer shut down except for my voice, while rendering the final cut. It had to be completely redone. Acknowledging the delay, for whatever reason, our conversation is timely and valuable for entering a new time in a not-so-normal way. Much appreciation to Ron and Skye for their work.

The practical stuff mentioned in the interview, like addressing social crisis, takes a lot of effort regardless of the emotional fortitude. It’s taken nearly four years for the ‘universe’ (and helpful others) to bring to bear the people to forge ahead with WeCanDoBetterArizona.org. I’m so excited and humbled that I get to be a part of it. It’s huge in the impact it will make on youth aging out of foster care in Arizona.

Effects of Exploration into Experiencer Elucidations

Making Sense Common Among the Fray

Have we explored the effects of experiencer elucidations as well as we can? To date there have been so many attempts to clarify the concept of contact with extraterrestrial and/or non-human intelligence. Academic studies from past and present activities delve into subject, though interpretation of data and subjective experiences are inconclusive. Many have fallen into the rabbit hole and get overwhelmed by the warren, not realizing so many POVs exist.

The rise of interest offers the opportunity to investigate the plethora of possibilities, yet the salient points of our instruction are often lost. The latter seems to lead us toward a kind of renewal of curiosity with conscience, exploring with the intention of seeking cohesion. It seems the notion of creating a better world is also at the core of the communications many receive.

Perhaps taking a look at the current status of maturity in our global civilization is a good place to start in assessing the present and getting a better picture of how to evolve with maturity. The world is full of distractions and ufology is no different. Regarding the maturity level of humanity, we’re probably just entering the teenage years, thinking we know more than we do and acting without conscience toward people and planet.

Our Current Planetary Mindset

The world seems to be run by a Profit Over People mindset that hasn’t been challenged for millennia. We see the effects and suffer the consequences, a global challenge has resulted on several fronts now, including a pandemic from polluting our bodies, minds, air, land and water. We are not separate from our environment and the wisdom of our elders is growing in acceptance, much like teens becoming young adults.

Acceptance and recognition of ‘visitors from space’ is reaching new heights in government and military disclosures, yet they are still being seen as some kind of threat to our survival by many. The latter has no definitive proof and lacks the real recognition it deserves. Taking into consideration the vast amount of data and examples of interaction, such as crop circles on the one hand and shutting of weapons of mass destruction on the other.

The easier thing to do is get caught up in the phenomena that non-human intelligence presents, like channelings, orbs or sightings, for instance. In all good conscience, where is it taking us? How can we determine the validity of the ‘channeled’ information? What really are orbs? What are the craft in our skies? Should we be wary or welcoming?

Information Resources of the Esoteric Order

There is a near inexhaustible amount of information from various channelers and psychics; automatic writing, conscious, mediumship, trance and through regression. The latter was the life work of Delores Cannon and produced volumes of material. Jane Roberts (Seth) and Edgar Cayce, Darryl Anka (Bashar), Lee Carroll (Kryon) and JZ Knight (Ramtha) are examples of trance channlers. Jim Self, Steve Rother, Geoffrey Hoppe and Esther Hicks fall into the conscious channelers, and Ruth Montgomery was well known for her automatic writing.

The detail of information also spans the gamut, from simple ideals and reinforcement of universal ‘love’ to fairly intricate explanations of the order of things, like the Urantia Book. Flashing on Robert Heinlein, can we really ‘grok’ the magnitude of the intelligence and structure within the constructs of creation? What are we really seeking to understand?

Perhaps we can all agree that in the hierarchy of attention and thinking, we’ve kept ourselves busy with disclosure and physical proof to convince us beyond a shadow of a doubt that UAPs or UFOs are real and nobody really knows what is going on with them, or at least who we think should doesn’t appear to know any more than most ufologists who’ve been around a while.

The CE-5 experience, albeit as profitable as it’s been for Dr. Greer, has still focused on visual events, though telepathic communications are sought and often occur as well. Still, the subjective experiences vary among individuals during the same event. Beyond the general well-wishing and happy engagement consensus of groups, there really isn’t any lasting or sustainable communication that leads us forward toward bettering our conditions on Earth.

Bringing It All Home – Experiencer Elucidations

Social distancing has given us the opportunity for quiet time, reflecting and resolving long-standing torments in our human dynamics as we see evidence of just how dystopian our society has become just as many, maybe too many, feared it would. The fear is likely to have produced the current conditions, not because we wanted it to, because the attention was on what we did not want to happen, not on what we do.

It may seem like splitting hairs, though the communication from nearly every angle through the reflections of the vast majority of experiencers is that we are much more powerful and are unconscious of what our emotions and thoughts have produced. The overarching theme of messages from elsewhere is one of raising our consciousness, being more mindful and paying more attention to understanding natural laws. Advanced or enlightened consciousness moves us, or ought, to consider a greater order and expanded reality.

To date we’ve had our own type of social distancing from the advancement or consciousness and the discipline it takes to do so. We’re lazy and prefer the dance with the unknown to be at a distance. The up close and personal events produce a certain awe and curiosity in many, though we haven’t found a place to purposefully collaborate on applying what we know. It’s still like a game of ping pong, where accusations or theories are tossed about to and fro with few actual conversations happening.

Conversations that matter are our next step on so many levels, across the spectrum of our existing reality. The constraints we find are present due to confining and/or conflicting belief systems and even the underlying result of mistrust that is happening from social distancing. It’s imposed for our safety, yet its psychological affects are catastrophic to the human experience. We get triggered in some way and lose all sight of the shore we so enjoyed as one before we came here to engage our development as conscious beings individuated.  How do we, you and I, find resonance with a greater aspect of ourselves that is indeed one with All That Is?

The latter probably seems unattainable, at present, or possibly isn’t even understood. The engagement of non-human intelligence, ETs et al, seem to allude that this state of being is well understood by advanced races and it is our destiny to soon understand it as well. All races, according to a cursory assessment of high-level communication, have gone through the process of chaos to order in their own worlds. From experiencer elucidations, we’re being invited to do the same, grow in our awareness and understand the simplicity in the complexity across consciousness, time and space. Whether we accept the invitation or not is a choice each individual must make as we move into a ‘new time’ in the development of our planetary civilization.

Ufologists Have Many Questions About the Surreal Times

Social Distancing in Ufology

Ufologists’ questions permeate a surreal environment. Perusal of social platforms and various groups seem to offer evidence of further division in the field, with obvious questions about the involvement of non-human intelligence in the current transcendent event. Many seem to think our naturally-distanced cosmic cohorts are directly involved. Others stand firm in their convictions that humans are solely responsible for their actions and the conditions simply presenting the consequences of prolonged behavior.

This one can speak only to his experience and the references that have been left  by those who’ve explored before, perhaps even been here before so long ago. Contrary to many who believe the UFO phenomena is incomprehensible and dangerously like the behavior of humans toward each other; the vile and decrepit acts of control and dominance of people and resources at any cost and by any means, advanced beings have an equally advanced consciousness.

Religions have tried to promote an understanding of the nature of God and creation that became misconstrued over time and certainly unhealthy in its separative qualities. Many ancient texts included descriptions and stories of beings and vehicles that most certainly allude the presence of advanced races as well as ‘contact’ with some.

truth has no agenda - ufologists questionsBeyond Religious Confinement

Looking for a piece of text that encapsulates the understanding life-long contact has inspired and permitted, one source stood out in answer to another of the ufologists’ questions. It is replete with conveyed awareness. [God] is a term and only a term to express an incomprehensible concept to humans. There is a ‘supreme’ consciousness that all advanced or enlightened races embrace as a guiding force and frequency to aspire toward. Their actions demonstrate it across the gamut of experiencer-accounts.

The enlightened worlds all recognize and worship the Universal Father, the eternal maker and infinite upholder o f all creation. The will creatures of universe upon universe have embarked upon the long, long Paradise journey, the fascinating struggle of the eternal adventure of attaining God the Father. The transcendent good of the children of time is to find the eternal God, to comprehend the divine nature, to recognize the Universal Father , God-knowing creatures as they are in their spheres, like him as his is in his Paradise perfection of personality and in his universal sphere of righteous supremacy. From the Universal Father who inhabits eternity there has gone forth the supreme mandate, “Be You perfect, eve as I am perfect.” In love and mercy the messengers of Paradise have carried this divine exhortations down through the ages and out through the universes, even to such lowly animal-origin creatures as the human races of Earth.

This magnificent and universal injunction to strive for the attainment of the perfection of divinity in the first duty, and should be the highest ambition, of all the struggling creature creation of the God of perfection. This possibility of attainment of divine perfection is the final and certain destiny of all man’s eternal spiritual progress.

Earth mortals can hardly hope to be perfect in the infinite sense, but it is entirely possible for human beings, starting out as they do on this planet, to attain the supernal and divine goal which the infinite God has set for mortal man; and when they do achieve the destiny, they will, in all that pertains to self-realization and mind attainment, be just as replete in their sphere of divine perfection as God himself is in the sphere of infinity and eternity. Such perfection may not be universal in the material sense, unlimited in intellectual grasp, or final in spiritual experience, but it is final and complete in all finite aspects of divinity of will, perfection of personality motivation, and God-consciousness.

This is the true meaning of the divine command, “Be ye perfect, even as I am perfect, ” which ever urges mortal man onward and beckons him inward in that long and fascinating struggle for the attainment of higher and higher levels of spiritual values and true universe meanings. This sublime search for the God of universes is the supreme adventure of the inhabitants of all the world of time and space.

Now this may be hard to comprehend; that advanced races all have this understanding that is, to date, incomprehensible to man in any ubiquitous sense. In fact, it is one of the prerequisites to advance toward a Type I civilization; a comprehension of at least some universal laws and principles built in to the natural order of things and specifically to our evolution. It’s in our genes, literally. If we step back and look at the essence of the messages received through various channels and/or ‘sources’ we find [this] to be true.

adjusting our thinking - ufologists questionsAdjusting Our Thinking

Another potential answer to ufologists’ questions goes deeper. Frequency-response, the ability of the mind to reflect the individuated source code, is the central component of communication with advanced races. As in the above, the individuated sphere reflects the supreme sphere; that indwelling aspect of God that is replete within the individual learns how to reflect the divine perfection in the outer world. There are experiential examples strewn across the Net from those who’ve ‘raised’ their consciousness or vibration and chose to share their story. Creation is interactive to the extreme, we just haven’t accepted that it also reflects our unconscious activity as well, as in the transcendent event we are facing now.

From another perspective, to make it a bit more understandable, an NDE story often includes a view of the Light and sometimes even entering it… absorbed completely yet still individuated in the ability to think and respond. Extrapolate that to the notion of the Light condensing into form and residing as a point within individual beings, each body on Earth. Each of us, without exception, is connected to Source. We have the choice whether to activate that connection or not. How we connect, our ability to completely and totally ‘let go’ of human beliefs and acquire higher-ordered knowledge, is up to us.

We have that choice in all activity, from health care systems to technology development to planetary administration and distribution systems to meet the needs for individual care and survival, even more toward the awareness of each thread in the tapestry of Earth-human relations. Everyone has a spot on the team, there are no cuts from the roster. In other words, the activity of universal consciousness with humans is replete in the non-human intelligence that is attempting to guide us through our transition.

What Transition?

We’re on a cosmic time-table, to answer at least one of the ufologists’ questions. The Earth itself is changing; for example, poles shifting. That is a very basic awareness we all have now. What else is happening simultaneously? We’re moving from one epoch to another, from Piscean to Aquarian ages. Wouldn’t this also be accompanied by major shifts in consciousness and human activity? The old patterns and programs of ego-centric and fear-laden belief systems are being uprooted. Chaos in world affairs is evidence now. Many have been anticipating this process, not knowing exactly how it would happen, only that it, indeed, would happen.

How we proceed is a matter of acknowledging this internal communication and connection that exists with a higher-nature of humanity; a move toward oneness. This move does not take away personal choices or individual rights, it simply invites them to be more focused and purposeful. The activity of non-human intelligence is in support of this behavioral change within the consciousness of humanity, individually and collectively, toward our next step in universe affairs; the acts of aligning attention, intention and action with universal understanding that enables us to work collaboratively toward harmony among people and planet.

cultural creatives - ufologists questionsEveryone, even those we believe to be evil power-hungry controllers, has a role in this next act of humanity’s play. It is essential, imperative, that aberrant emotional responses [violent acts and/or unending rants lacking common sense] are minimized or mitigated. This allows the awareness of observation and conscious-choice action to evolve. The result empowers the engagement of individual activity and support of non-human intelligence toward the gradual shift in planetary systems toward a higher order of service to humanity.

Cultural Creatives, or at least the label given by Drs. Anderson and Ray, are perhaps one of the best examples – Just under half of the CC population comprises the more educated, leading-edge thinkers. This includes many writers, artists, musicians, psychotherapists, alternative health care providers and other professionals. They combine a serious focus on their spirituality with a strong passion for social activism. Sound familiar?

Ufologists’ Questions – Making Sense Common

We often think the common sense ought to win out, right? Are there common sense answers to ufologists’ questions? Too often that common sense is skewed by all kinds of confusion and disinformation, let alone the chaos in our heads. What do we do? We make sense common based on practical and pragmatic assertions, such as the above – Such perfection may not be universal in the material sense, unlimited in intellectual grasp, or final in spiritual experience, but it is final and complete in all finite aspects of divinity of will, perfection of personality motivation, and God-consciousness. Attention, intention and action are the ultimate theme in advancing consciousness in humanity, in ourselves, and across the cosmos.

If any of this resonated, please take a moment and share this post somewhere. Thanks in advance.

Vast Active Living Intelligence System

Sci-Fi or Potential Reality

VALIS (Vast Active Living Intelligence System) was introduced by Philip K. Dick as a science fiction novel. VALIS was a satellite that was part of a network across the galaxy interacting with other intelligent life. It was literally a Vast Active Living Intelligence System designed to target and communicate with certain people. The interaction, much like contact experiences and ETI communications, caused an evolution of consciousness which threatened the status quo. Sounds familiar, huh?

Published in 1981, its affects can be seen throughout the consciousness movement and ufology as well. Dick was known for Blade Runner, Total Recall and The Minority Report among others. His insight and inspiration, much like The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick, provides things all to close to the theme today; aspiring experiencers desiring to learn how to work as one. It makes one wonder just how connected Dick was, so parallel to what many are experiencing as real.

Perhaps the Black Knight might have been his inspiration as well. What is absolutely true is this vast active living intelligence system is a reality within humans and other species. It is another description of the ‘cosmic’ consciousness paradoxically self-directed yet so intricately symbiotic with people, planet and posterity. As we increase the knowledge base, internal and external, the capacity for cognition and collaboration in concert rises.

Vast Active Living Intelligence System of Earth

What ever the communication device, religion or revelation, the consistency across fields of study could be leading us toward an increased capacity for planetary management, too. Why does that make a difference or should we care? What does that have to do with UFOs or their inhabitants; visitors from afar with confusing methods of communication toward humans? They don’t appear to communicate in ways we are accustomed, yet there are volumes of material, direct experiences, where messages are shared an no regression necessary to retrieve.

The excitement over the recent disclosure and discovery being shared with the general public seems anti-climatic, though. It’s a new news cycle for many that haven’t been following the fray and are aware of the dichotomy of experiencer vs researcher in the Ufology community. In the Tao of Ufology, if there were one, the two have distinct yet equal value in moving us all forward. The challenge comes in sifting through the onslaught of information and finding consistent value, something that leads us toward making our own world better and receptive to future engagement of Extraterrestrials in whatever style we can collectively perceive.

Individuals and entities, organizations and others, are often obfuscated by the marauders in the media and within the fray, perhaps well-intentioned at times yet certainly adding to the frustration within the Ufology community and beyond. The added complexity of current environmental and political world affairs not only increases the importance of communication, it requires us to rethink our methodology and purpose for it. We know ‘they’ (various races in yet undetermined alliances and numbers) are indeed here and actively engaging many.

Human Intelligence Systems

The types and styles of engagement vary as well, leaving a certain nebulous notion that we are somehow vulnerable to outside influences or unintended engagement; victims of circumstance. Attempts are being made to access, organize and sift through similarities of experiencers that hopefully will offer some consistent experiences, themes and/or vulnerabilities within our individual and collective belief systems. The information age is leading us toward practical and pragmatic concerns beyond religious or superstitious separative tendencies.

What are we really looking for in our quest? What do we want to understand? The list is large and all-consuming to many explorers, researchers and those deemed ‘experts’ in the field. The amount of activity and interest is growing, but who or what leads the way? The ‘field’ is certainly not unified as major divisions seem to be present between materialists and contact activists. Admittedly, the challenge of bridging that divide seems endless with science and speculation vying for attention.

Let’s step in the way-back machine for just a moment, shall we? What did we have or know early on that has been lost or ignored, rejected or unimportant in view of today’s technology? Below is some old footage of George Adamski’s from the early 1960s. Obviously in poor shape, it still offers evidence of how craft movements defy known physics then. The craft looks very similar to Billy Meier’s photos and video. Disclosure and discrediting seem inextricably linked.

Future Foundations for ETI Interaction

Fast forward to today, some 60 years later, and the expansion of the parameters of ufology to now include matters of consciousness, not just craft or physical evidence. Certainly, those behind the scenes and beyond public purview have information, volumes of it no doubt. Just what that information is may or may not be as detailed or expansive as many believe. It is conceivable that experiencers might have more information pertinent to the future of the field or even add to the information already gathered, if we only knew what it is.

The Edgar Mitchell Foundation for Extraterrestrial Encounters (FREE’s near-original name) began public surveys of ‘contactees’ or ‘experiencers’ as they are now being called. It’s hard to say just how valid the information will be determined to be, yet thousands have taken the surveys. The results are contained in the book Beyond UFOs, along with several papers written by Board Members. FREE’s co-founder, Rey Hernandez, has embarked on a next-level exploration of non-human intelligence with noted PhDs and others in the field of consciousness.

In the face of advancing interest and organizations vying for attention and money for research, it might be prudent to consider how we choose to view appropriate development. How humanity is served is as important as any technological advancements. Arguments over this or that evidence seems counterproductive to the larger picture of engagement and the future of Earth and humanity.

The Road Less Traveled

So far, for whatever reason, the level of engagement has been cursory at best when it comes to interaction with non-human races. We really don’t know where they are from or when, according to the lack of evidence and information to date, let alone who and why. Their choice, not ours. Why? How can we adjust? What do we need to do to prepare the way for open communication at least? These seem to be more important questions. How would a vast active living intelligence system answer them? How might we discern?

The safety and security of Earth is surely a concern, just as each nation has security issues with foreigners from other nations or worlds. A good look at the past might indicate what we can expect in the future. Beyond the anomalous stories of malevolent intent, there are no obvious signs of danger from other worlds. Suspicions are like superstitions that knowledge and wisdom eliminate over time. It is nearly impossible for a race that is suspicious toward one another to pause for unknown, apparently benign or beneficent, races to emerge safely.

Considering the nature of most contact experiences being telepathic, listening to more than an individual is not beyond the scope of possibility. What would our collective ‘thoughtmosphere’ offer to a race or races of highly advanced beings? After so many re-runs, somebody needs to turn off the TV. Our collective image via our own transmissions of radio, TV and thought is less than hospitable at present. We’re obsessed with violence throughout our passive entertainment choices, whether sports, movies, television shows or video games.

The scope of available opportunities for communication seems endless when we consider the non-linear and non-local nature of such, not to mention telepathic, yet the percentile of folks that can even think about or are engaged by off-planet races is minuscule at best. Common sense would offer that such folk would become objects of scrutiny with a loss of freedom to boot. That would be an inappropriate response, yet still too real at this time. Where will it go?

Perhaps there is a Giver of Data, like VALIS, or some other prevailing consciousness that is always ON and delivering messages as recipients become available. There is a growing number of ufologists that are exploring how frequency comes into play with ‘downloads’ or other kinds of communication. We don’t really have the material technology to determine that at present. However, the notion of frequency and/or frequency response does warrant consideration.

It’s conceivable that our rise to the level of a Type I civilization on the Kardashev scale would include certain advances in both brain and consciousness integration as well as material sciences and technology. Dr. Kaku seems to agree with those notions and more. The similarities between code-driven virtual environments, brain-mind capability and binary systems is incredible and the impetus of ZERO to ONE – Making Our Way Toward a Conscious Civilization, accessing that vast active living intelligence system of our own. The book started as a chapter for FREE’s next volume, requested by Rey Hernandez, and answering three questions and prompted more consideration beyond the page limitation for the chapter.

vast active living intelligence systemThe author demonstrates that there is a huge space for our civilization and human intelligence to evolve by showing his personal experiences of interacting with advanced intelligence and his lifetime exploration of human nature, cosmology, UFOlogy, and the modalities of experiencing the paranormal powers with like-minded people.

Awakening – Getting Through the Illusions We Face

Are We Waking Up?

“Awakening is not a matter of intelligence. Many intelligent people are deep in illusion. But rather, awakening happens when one has an insatiable thirst to know the truth.” Author Unknown

Awakening or illusion? How that insatiable thirst dispels the illusion depends on how awake we choose to be and the willingness to suspend or slice away false belief systems. We have to test them first, of course. Recycling memories tends to offer new insights and thoughts for me. Perhaps they’ll be interesting to you as the stream of consciousness flows onto the page. Putting thoughts to writing can be so cathartic.

What is truth? We refer to it, but do we ever really define it so that we can agree on it? I mean, truth would be ubiquitous and undeniable, right? I suppose, in a way, that might be a clear explanation of how we work, how we relate to each other, how we relate to the world or worlds we may perceive? Perhaps a combination of a mathematical and psycho-spiritual model that would explain the intelligence at work throughout? What is awakening related to this?

What would it do if we knew it? How would our lives look if we not only knew it, but lived it? Would you say that within this insatiable thirst there is a new living awareness that emerges? What is that like? Does it make sense? Is that sense being made common?

This emerging awareness seems completely subjective in the discovery process. Attempts to articulate a multi-dimensional funnel of data into linear ears and eyes has been going on for millennia. Alas, we still tend to argue about the details and miss the overarching message(s). Can the insatiable curiosity in many cause an upwising in the world? Big T, little t, it’s ultimately the same, so what is your concept of truth?

Well, that got a little deeper than intended. On a more practical note, it sure seems that this theme runs across a plethora of playing fields in our present time. The information age and data available for searching is causing an evolution in intelligence across the world. It would seem only logical that the ability to discern would also reach new levels in our lives.

Awakening – Illusion

Once we find this ‘whatever we’re looking for’ truth, the mere acquisition of it might make it suspicious at first. It’s natural. We’re always confused by the unknown suddenly becoming known, which it would seem is how the process of discovering truth works. Applying that to the field of Ufology is no small task. It’s hard to cut through the din.

There is a lot of concern voiced by many regarding the ‘experts’ in the field and the way in which they are promoted, or not as the case may be. There are numerous questions flying around social media platforms in the hundreds of groups that are aligned under the Ufology banner. They range from the absurd to the transformational in scope.

It’s fairly easy to spot the absurd or pejorative and dismiss them as just uninformed or experientially bereft. Then there are those who have great stories and no real proof, yet are followed by thousands or possibly millions across the web. Let us not forget the researchers who have done a great job at collecting and sharing information, though they tend to speculate about potentials based on incomplete data; experiencers are left out of the loop.

It’s been less than a decade since experiencers, en masse, have started sharing their stories through blogs, groups, pages, podcasts and web chats. Less than 20 years ago when the curator first dove into the web, there were extremely small numbers of folks willing to expose themselves to scrutiny. Spirit Web was big then, a chat platform with multiple rooms and topics. Today, the scene is prolific with thousands of opportunities to engage on hundreds of platforms.

The Aerial Phenomena Research Organization started in Sturgeon Bay, WI in 1952 and moved to Tucson, AZ in 1960. The National UFO Conference began in 1963 in Hollywood, of course. MUFON, Inc. was originally established as the Midwest UFO Network on 31 May 1969, in Quincy, Illinois. The conference craze began emerging in the early 1990s with the first International UFO Congress in Tucson, then Tim Beckley’s New Age and Alien Agenda conferences. The Prophets Conferences were big in the mid to late-90s, the curator managed their Phoenix event in 1997. Whole Life Expos began around the same time, too.  An ex-board member of WLE started Contact in the Desert, another profitable venture, in 2013. 

Awakening the Fray

Now there are dozens of Ufology-focused events around the world, most of which can be found on our website as we become aware of them. It is a niche market for sure, yet it has its celebrities and movie stars, just like the old days. Just how those celebrities are made is another perplexing question as there are many agendas spiraling within the field; some glaring and some a little less detectable at first. There are those who genuinely admit they don’t know much, though they have managed to gather enough data and some objective views on the subjective experiences of others.

We tend to listen and nod our heads to the experts of pretty much any field because we rarely understand what they are actually saying, especially the Ph.D.s, yet we don’t want to appear stupid to our peers by asking questions. Those who do have the experience and/or intelligence to ask questions are generally felt to be critical instead of sincere. Intelligent questions get glossed over or unanswered and tend to throw up those BS meter flags, or at least they should.

We certainly do not have all the answers, and maybe not even the questions yet. We still need that insatiable thirst for truth. We’ve had a materialist quest for truth with evidence, exotic metals, photos, ship remnants; material proof of some kind. We have only asked cursory questions regarding the occupants of the crafts we either have seen or trust that are there. The questions cannot be asked because the experiencers have not been let into the game.

Like any process and reflective of the field in general, there are some pretty strange tales and loud mouths in the experiencer groups, too. There are some consistencies, though, however small, that might be a good place to start asking questions. The quest for truth, at any level, is humbling beyond imagination. The small voices who seem genuine and sincere may hold some deeper truths about our relationship with the other planetary civilizations who frequent here.

Humans are resilient, resourceful and even reverent toward challenges in chaos and turmoil. We show as a human race that we can unify to overcome them and restore order. We do it all the time, yet somehow get distracted when it comes to the onslaught of information, personalities and pundits who manage the gate. There are some new developments within the field that are leaning toward incorporating experiencer data and philosophies on contact.

The key for the expansion and potential unification of this field is in collaboration with intention to keep the attention on asking better questions. Like Einstein claims, we cannot answer the questions with our own thinking, yet it is our option to be open to new thinking that allows the flow of information. Many have events where they speak things they did not understand prior to speaking about them in that moment. There is a conduit for information flow within us.

What does that have to do with the insatiable thirst for truth? That flow is what quenches the thirst. It’s like the elixir that resonates throughout our body/mind/spirit/soul to the degree of which we feel ‘electric’ or ‘energized’ or even ‘on fire’ with this discovery. That is the awakening of the conduit within us. It brings humility, not arrogance; compassion, not surreptitiousness. As curator and partial purveyor of profundities, we can all work together to restore order, the most profound truth of all.
