We cannot separate the transcendent activity on Earth now from the admonitions of the communications we’ve been able to decipher from our Star Families. The connections ought to be obvious to even the most resistant observers of this activity between Non-human Intelligence and human beings seeking further connection with what we know to be ‘out there.’ From within, it is indeed a soular revolution.
The essence of a recent post on a social media platform noted the cognitive dissonance in Americans today, feeding the obfuscation of truth and the separation of people in the ‘stay-at-home’ atmosphere. Believing one thing yet practicing another through action that is often in opposition to their belief is a concerted effort toward catastrophe, even if it is unconscious. Let’s get beyond that, shall we?
I will remind us again of the 5 Ps of Life – Patience, Persistence, Perseverance, Passion, and Purpose. People are in places for a reason. If we doubt that, I remind you that they are there, whether we like it or not. We may not like how our judgments come up, but they do. Why? What if the opposite were true, that we have no judgments toward who is where and why? What if we were aware enough to follow the ‘spirit’ of the day and simply do what is in front of us to do?
We shall overcome the divisions as we seek unity of purpose and our freedoms and rights granted by the Constitution – to restore our well-being! We are a spiritually nascent nation at present. We need a soular revolution in America and the world. We all claim to have one, yet we have not let our souls to lead us. Instead we opt for some mental exercise and, ‘Oh, I’ll think about it’ attitude. How is that working?
What if we actually had a REVOLUTION OF SOUL????
We know that the power within us, that is also everywhere else, is stronger than anything ‘in’ the world, right? This isn’t just a spiritual supposition, it’s backed up by quantum physics.
How do we activate that? How do we engage ‘spooky action at a distance’ for the good of all?
Is it possible that a few words would do so? Like, “I love you. Our purpose is Oneness” focusing us on ONE GOAL that truly servers everyone? Most have thought a spiritual path is not for them, that it is too ‘unknown’ or ‘unachievable’ to embark upon or it lacks the visceral experience of the senses to be taken seriously.
Where has that gotten you? I ask you to reconsider the notion that even Einstein, a pretty smart guy who shares the same awe about Energy and Nature, says that can occur as ‘spooky action at a distance.’ To use a familiar term, the ‘Holy Spirit’ permeates that experience and truly guides us as a wise mentor. From all the indications of ‘pure’ conscious contact, it likely is the very same guiding force, by whatever name we choose to call it.
That same wise mentor is your inner voice of conscience, of love for your fellow human beings even with they act out of character or unconsciously. By whatever name you choose to call it EACH OF YOU HAVE IT – IT IS OPERATIONAL – DO NOT DENY IT! More than likely it will lead you to an appropriate action that may feel a little risky at first.
So what do you do? I’ll answer that we have a prerequisite that really needs to happen before the doing. That is getting in touch with your BEing, the connected place within you, that point of light that is part of God that we all have inside of us. One of the activities it led to for me was the development of IndependenceArizona.com and the actions toward establishing it as a viable party in Arizona. No doubt it will be something different for you.
The reconnection with soul is the same for each. It has the same message for each, though the application of that message is individuated with a perfected form, fit and function in this world specifically for these times. Trust your intuition, your gut, the First Brain according to wise men and women of indigenous traditions. Perhaps this article will help with your discernment.
Take a moment and just feel.
Ask yourself about these words and the possibility they are faithful and true to your highest good now. Pause and reflect in your inner truth looking place. BE the Change you wish to see.
I could site the many communiques that experiencers share, either through direct contact or even those that are being ‘channeled’ through various people today. They cannot all be insane or experiencing psychosis. When the same message, or very similar ones, come through a variety of sources, might they have some value?
As we move forward on the path to a Type I Civilization the soular revolution is even more important, and along with more open engagement with our neighbors in the friendly skies, what might we anticipate as admonitions or guidance through these transcendent times. Are we able to ascend in our own being and thinking to embrace a new way of being and thinking? Evidence of the operational capacity of our attention, intention and action has given us more hope, even bolstered the faith, love and trust we have in the ONE.
In the next phase of our movement through this transcendent event, we’ll be faced with choices to honor that which is within us (what connects us all) and/or the option of accepting financial gain or reparations for our troubles during this time with, no doubt, being offered a vaccine and/or membership into a new club that shouldn’t have us as members at all. It’s an option that is being pushed through governments today to ‘save’ us from Covid-19. It’s all a facade.
According to trusted sources we are not in danger of over-population at all. We have more than enough land and resources to sustain us indefinitely. The trouble is, that land and resources are often in the hands of those who would desire control and domination of them for selfish gain. The Profit Over People regime has reached out again for your assistance under the guise of ‘keeping us safe’ when the opposite is true.
As mentioned above, the Soular Revolution (Consciousness Emerging within US) will drive the new paradigm… People and Planet Over Profit. It’s up to us to at least imagine or visualize what that might look like, to consider the possibility and allow our inner truth looking places to do what they were designed to do from the beginning – create a path to harmony for all. Check your sources – ET, NHI, Guides or whatever they are. Inquire of this truth. Lead with Vision.
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.
Beyond 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
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.
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.
Everyone, 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.
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.
The 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.
As an author and experiencer with some intelligence in the field of Ufology, I’ve been able to peer into the depths of my own experience and reflect a kind of ‘compare and contrast’ perspective. I am fairly free of the need to be right and am willing to put everything on the line for review. There is a certain freedom in the willingness to be tested or vetted as prudence is precious, though truth is tantamount. The latter is troublesome for the ufology community, .
Lately the story-line has been expanding to discuss more than materials, photos and videos of sightings, even though the promoting of ‘meta-materials’ and deals with government factions are attempting to garner public attention instead. The field is full of authorities and researchers with little experiential background, if any, and the public seems oblivious to the dichotomy.
The experience of contact with ETI, most often, appears to be more about energy and sensations… we can’t rise to the level of other intelligences, so we automatically fear them because of the intensity of their energy. I describe my encounter with a Draconian as intensely confrontational initially, but only because there was some initial resistance. Most folks describe a fight or flight response as a result. I’ve written more on the event here.
Moving One’s Perspective
Personally, once I let go of the fear the opposite effect was true, a most intense communion, like my friend Tom talks about in his interview. (https://youtu.be/VVA_JwqkKcw) It’s our own fears, wherever they come from, that get in the way. Our patterns of behavior are such that what we do anywhere, we do everywhere even though we may not realize it. We have deeply embedded belief systems and even genetically passed creodes and memes that inhibit exploration, let alone acceptance of a different reality.
Long before my engagement in ufology I was chronicling events, without the use of hypnosis, for decades and offer a different perspective that comes from direct experience. Of course it is mostly subjective, though I’ve been encouraged by reflections from others whom I hold great respect. It’s immensely challenging to take one’s own experiences and become an observer without attachment in order to explore other possibilities or potentials of meaning and understanding.
Most of the time our experiences are momentary; non-linear, non-local and sporadic in nature. Occasionally there are extended periods and streams of consciousness that are connected to a series of events. I’ve had a few, and one specifically that generated a high degree of truth over time, a gathering that become known as the Council of 300 back in 2001, which outlined the process of First Contact and efforts of a multi-race/system organization. I kept quiet for some time, though I noticed others were referencing this gathering in channeled pieces from several sources over the next few months. I wish I could have kept them, but that was a few hard drives ago.
Now I have no way of proving things or knowing how those in the ufology community will perceive those things, so it could be fictitious and just an effort to get attention. I’m not going to stomp and shout, but I will continue to share and, in time, things will prove themselves. Of that I have no doubt. Until then, this particular experience and the resulting material is consistent with what Grant Cameron has been sharing… over a decade later. Anywho… it may be of interest… downloadable pdf ‘Council of 300’
Is Ufology Going Somewhere?
So much has been written about various experiences and their impact on individuals, from frightening to transcendent. It appears the majority of them report a sense of freedom and even unity from prolonged contact and the rise from fear to fearlessness is replete. Some even report that the realizations are synonymous with the spiritual teachings of a progressive awareness toward harmony with self and others, including ETI, as a process of evolutionary unification.
Hence, the long-running presentation and promotion of the idea of ‘harmony among people and planet.’ It is shared through my wanting of nothing and willingness to die for what I believed in – cosmic consciousness – so many years ago. Those words usually fall on deaf ears, especially the idea that I actually died and had a ‘session’ with an advanced intelligence I could have easily called ‘God,’ though it felt more familial in nature. Perhaps it was.
This sense of moving toward harmony, as a planetary civilization, has been a constant desire/theme in my life and the lack of attachment to outcome (no drive for dinero beyond needs for sustenance) has severely pissed off a number of so-called friends and lovers, not to mention family members, over the years. How can we espouse such things if we don’t live them? Faith, love and trust are key factors – we will be afforded opportunities to manage our lives in good stead.
What I’ve learned from the contacts/events and the ‘compare and contrast’ perspective over the decades is that control is illusory, progress toward harmony is ubiquitous (universally) and letting go of belief systems that have obvious contradictory components is essential. We gain freedom in that rather than lose individuality, which is the fear most have, imho. The process invites the furthering development of individuality instead, with attending features we might call our ‘perfected’ form, fit and function in the tapestry of life.
Relationships on the Ocean of Emotion
I can relate to this on a very deep level, probably more than most from my own experiences. I can also relate to the resistance of sharing, having done so for some time and noting the responses I’ve gotten from doing so. I’ve felt like a foreigner even in the places that ought to be welcoming, perhaps even inquisitive. The pensiveness many experience is proportional to the willingness to stretch one’s neck out in sharing such personal details, sometimes lasting for decades and in some cases a lifetime – death bed confessions some have made recently.
I’ve never felt like their engagement was an kind of experiment, though. It’s a shared process of evolution we are only barely understanding so far, even though there is a common thread of unity expressed. I suppose it’s easier to perceive having felt the unity of one with all through the NDE I had as a teen. So many events followed, sporadically to me, with a consistent theme revealing the path to harmony.
Alas, the initial sharings as a teen surely put me in a place not of my liking as my parents thought I needed some psychiatric help and chose to place me in the care of a ‘clinical’ environment without the comprehension of the subtle worlds all around us that some are profoundly sensitive toward and willing to explore. The events provide an opportunity to develop a soft heart and open mind, compassionate and willing to be fearless instead of fearful.
The breadth and dynamic of our consciousness, as we explore it, is yielding an awareness of the expansiveness of our life stream and its capacity for collaborating with a vast array of intelligences we are now capable of perceiving without religious or superstitious notions, imho. The deep impact moves us toward the sense of awe, humility and respect of life in all its myriad forms.
Why are people so out of touch with common sense, ethics, morals? I seem to be a fly in the ointment kind of guy, stirring up questions on the fly. I have no real allegiance to anything other than progress toward cohesion and harmony among people and planet. Where do we get guidance to make sure we’re doing the right things right? It’s like a free-for-all for some, getting caught up in the nonsense.
We relate to the world through our experiences and sharing them, the tragedy to triumph processes, often gives others encouragement to stay the course. My hopes are to increase the joy of journey, lead with vision and share great stories that inspire others to find their prudent path toward harmony among people and planet. Occasionally, it’s even effective.
A wonderful group of people gathered around the concept of conversations with others, peering into the depths of what keeps us afraid, angry, ignorant and immobile in times of fear and stress. The television show that evolved included interviews with nearly 200 people and revealed very similar patterns in overcoming their fears, moving toward achieving their dreams both personally and professionally. The closing included practical advice for everyday living.
Since becoming aware of the extreme empathy I had at times as a kid, the process always seemed to resolve in the ability to withdraw the emotional feelers; to observe and sense what was happening. That sense went from cursory to deeply psychological over time. A common thread for seekers today is an experience of tragedy turned triumph, which gets them looking deeper into the meaning of their lives.
Emotional feelers are those etheric tendrils, if you will, that extend from our perceptual center sampling our environment constantly. What or where is our perceptual center? Indigenous philosophy says it’s in the gut, where all vibration in our surroundings is accessible. Others say it’s the heart and others think it is the head or brain. Regardless of what or where, we get the impressions and, without filters, become nearly incapacitated with the sensations. That’s a scary thing for an adult to go through, let alone a kid who can’t articulate what is happening.
Man, I can totally relate to the rejection and ridicule scenarios when sharing deeply personal accounts of experiences. I certainly have had my share and can empathize with others for sure. It seems we all spend a time or season engaged in the mayhem, unable to extricate our mind from obsessing on the fear of uncontrolled sensations. It makes us do crazy things. I learned to present things with a bit of humor, even when the topic is a very sensitive subject. I’ll share a short video that illustrates the point.
Clinical Perturbations and Performance Enhancers
As a teen I spent some time in psych ward, probably a good thing my parents felt was necessary. Trying to explain experiences with any kind of sense to those with no frame of reference was nearly impossible. I resigned to doing some time and figuring out what I needed to do to be free again. My parents at least knew I was safe, though the shrink didn’t seem to have and experiential depth from a spiritual perspective.
First thing I learned was I wasn’t the only one wanting to be heard. Others were having similar bouts with the unseen and trying to understand them. Sometimes one has to be ‘in’ to be ‘sane.’ What took me the longest was learning to tell the doc what he wanted to hear. My story got me labeled. It didn’t matter what I felt my truth was at the time. It might be that way for others in family and friends situations, too. Has your tragedy turned to triumph? I hope so.
That short stay was back in the Thorazine days where people become lumps in the corner from the side-effects of prescribed meds to keep people docile. It didn’t for me fortunately, an anomaly to the staff, playing a lot of ping-pong instead. Yet upon my return to society I felt extreme anxiety to the point where my body would tremble uncontrollably. It was embarrassing to say the least. It took me a few years, but I got to where the anxiety went away and I was able to stand up in front of people and feel more at ease.
Challenges of Family and Relationships
Over the next decade I tested my mettle as a husband, employee, father and priesthood holder, only to find those paths didn’t work, either. In spite of my commitments, others didn’t see things the same way and lost integrity. They say the three greatest fears are death, divorce and public speaking. I experienced all through and survived spinning it into a live metaphor for transformation presentation a few years after our divorce and corporate expulsion.
I wanted to offer something back to the community that was poignant, practical and purposeful. The idea popped into my head driving through Phoenix one day, clear as a bell, and pushed me back in front of people to continue my personal growth. The message was good, too, yet the whole experience was more about learning how to let go and flow in front of a group, using a few prompts to keep me going in the right direction.
Louis Russo (RIP) was a great influence on a number of folks in Phoenix. His Mystic Moments events, which began in his home and expanded into an old church renovated for an artist community, always had something of value to offer in learning experiences. He was a gifted medium and psychic who also ran a comedy troupe, the Oxymorons. They delivered esoteric information via comedy skits that were well-crafted interactions of comedic proportions.
Ufological Perturbations in Paradigms
Ufological? Is there a logic involved? In my own path, humor has been a constant companion, if only in my own head. Sometimes I have unexpected help (Apollo’s off camera voice) and I enjoy the flow. Many shut down when a sensitive subject is being addressed and side-comments ensue. The video below is an intro to a panel discussion that included Len Kasten, Cynthia Crawford, John Sackett and another (off camera). It was a great panel with about 100 people at Vision Quest in Scottsdale, AZ. Len, Cynthia (RIP) and John (RIP) are/were good friends.
You can tell I enjoyed it and them. We had/have great relationships. John must’ve known he was on his way out and gifted me a green sport coat that I’d expressed I liked. I was humbled by it for sure. I’ve given people things, too, warmed by the reception and value they offered. I know Cynthia was the same way, offering solace to others. Sometimes she’d call me for help, too.
I’m not bashful in talking about sensitive subjects and loosening up the audience. I’m a professional facilitator by trade (one of my hats) and my work entails getting people, places and things aligned to work together in exceptional capacity. The environment is the construction industry and projects include building, road, bridge, national park and waterways that are in the multi-million dollar range, the largest being nearly half a billion. People need to be a little loose when issues are in process of resolution, able to make light of miscommunication and move on.
The Flip Side
Here’s an example of bad behavior, though. The off-camera participant later caused a scene during an out of state event over dinner and then with the promoters. I was sharing Cynthia Crawford’s vendor space and this person decided to come chat for a while, I thought to get to know me better and I her. It seemed like a normal conversation. Dinner time came and mutual friends invited us, but she needed a ride to the restaurant. I offered and we went.
After ordering dinner a conversation ensued about indigenous wisdom and she made a statement about white people not respecting it. I voiced my opinion that everyone I knew did and that I thought she was incorrect. That response turned ugly; immediate emotional outbursts of being a victim and me not liking her, etc. In public, throwing a temper tantrum, wanting to leave immediately and expecting me to take her, then stomping off to another table by herself to call for a ride. It felt like a set up.
Her actions were absolutely shocking, making me wonder if there was other issues afoot, perhaps the result of her relationship with some Chief that developed a cult of followers. The folks that were with me were just as perplexed and admitted I had done nothing to provoke the tantrum. When it came down to the truth and sharing, they didn’t want to offend their friend by calling them out in the moment. Nor would they speak with the promoters once I discovered the problem. People accept this kind of behavior. Why?
I suspected the disturbance wouldn’t end there and it took months to confirm it. I found out she made some slanderous remarks to one of event promoters that got me pulled from their lineup for the next event. They didn’t bother to inform me, either. We had already agreed that I would be a presenter. It wasn’t until I received their flyer months later, that I found out. I called them and found out none of what she told them was true, though without doing any fact checking they didn’t want someone like me involved. People… From what I hear, this happens too often. I’m just relating a personal experience of it. Things need to change. What is acceptable?
I got over it, but still… completely false statements and underhanded behavior that is indicative of the Ufology field, unfortunately. The promoters didn’t know any better either, naive of the ill-intended interaction. As we mature we gain discernment and wisdom. It still happens, though, and people aren’t discerning enough to be able to tell the difference. That is another form of rejection, by supposed peers, that can be even more depressing when folks are trying to show up with honesty and integrity and get punished. Why bother to keep showing up? Folks don’t seem to be interested.
What does it take to be honest and have integrity and to develop community standards that support working together toward common goals? Isn’t that a far better intention?
Not too long ago someone announced that 29 people were killed by androids in Japan and people ate it up, with absolutely no proof. The news spread like wildfire, only to serve the journalist who ‘broke’ the story. Even Snopes got involved to expose it as a hoax. Then there is the secret space program and the race for breaking information that, in reality, has been around for decades among the basement tapes of Ufology.
Now we’ve got an argument over who released what and who said what in the supposed ‘greatest story in the history of Ufology’ that just seems to be another rendition of pointing fingers, obfuscating the truth and distracting the public from the real questions that need to be asked. Chest beating and word slinging, even at each other, seem far superior than actually having an intelligent conversation. We seem to love the drama. Who really cares?
It’s really surprising how folks who had nothing to do with Ufology a decade ago are now proclaiming to have all the information and the ‘big news’ is about to come out. Do they think the public is that naive? Do they not recognize those who’ve gone before them and dedicated their lives to the work? Do they not realize how transparent the battle for publicity is? Most of what the current flag wavers are presenting is not new news, period.
Overcoming the Odds
Many people, even those within Ufology, are depressed because of the current state of affairs and behaviors I mentioned above. Some are threatened by free-thinking and acting individuals who’ve been through the gamut, overcome fears and learned about the need for fearlessness in living, whether it be contact experiences or daily reality. The main theme of current conferences is a combination of sensationalism and tall stories with absolutely no proof that seem to captivate audiences. When are we going to start calling them on their shenanigans and demand better?
Time truly is on our side and this is all part of a process toward advancing a planetary civilization on many levels. We all grow at various speeds and timing. I’m encouraged by what I see happening recently, like the burden of proof statement Michio Kaku made at the recent World UFO Congress in Barcelona, Spain, being a breath of fresh air for the community. Then there is Alienstock and the thousands of folks that showed up, to do what?
Two things are striking – Timing of Climate Change march; the synchrony. Coincidence? Woodstock began a generation of change. That event was fringe, too. Granted it had a few more people present, but this appears to be a few thousand, at least, and it was purposeful in drawing attention.
A third unconsidered… where do ALL lines meet to organize a march and/or movement? What common agenda is necessary to bridge worlds and sustain us simultaneously? What is its scope and where are the people, places and things to organize it? Do we even have trusted leaders in the field yet, and who are they?
There is an upwising in the field, it seems, and people are talking about more important topics with some actual science and math involved, a universal language we’ve forgotten to use. It reminds me of the Eternal Lightness of Being and the potential joy that awaits simply by letting go of expectations and frustrations and looking for congruence. Yes, we can learn to laugh at our previous ways of being.
It’s time we exercised some discernment, though, and question everyone and everything to the best of our ability. Some have more ability due to their backgrounds and experience. We need to call people out for inappropriate or obfuscating behavior, imho. It doesn’t have to be nasty or pejorative at all. Asking specific questions can reveal a lot about the character of another, especially when they either avoid the answer or get provoked and react harshly to the question.
It seems that cohesion in the field would emerge after a while. Do you see any signs? With the access to information, we’re no longer gullible or ignorant of what is or is not capable of human use of technology. Advances in science and technology are readily accessible on the Web, along with the theoretical or applied science aspects of technology. The integration of consciousness, perhaps the glue we’ve been looking for, stimulates an evolution in our thinking. There really aren’t that many closely held secrets, in the government or otherwise if you know how to look and ask questions.
Encouragement for the Frayless
Perhaps that will help other experiencers with more important information come forth and be heard, another aspect of tragedy turned triumph. We really need to stop the nonsense with all the secret space programs and video footage hoopla, they’ve been around for years now. There’s much more at stake here and we need to pay attention to our people and planet. Others are paying attention AND they are letting us know. Why?
What do experiencers have to say regarding a unity of purpose that gives cause to be marginalized and obfuscated by the rest of Ufology?
I had a recent discussion with Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove, one of the most up-to-date thought-leaders of our time. He’s had numerous interviews with Russell Targ, John Alexander, Jacques Vallee, Vernon Neppe and a host of others with a variety of perspectives on consciousness and its potential affects on paranormal phenomena, occasionally inclusive of Ufology. Jeff’s views on the events are similar, they seem more like profit-making circuses than intentionally looking into the phenomena. You might enjoy our conversation.
Where Do We Go From Here?
Beyond the reference to an old Chicago tune, the notion of learning how to work together better was the intention of UFOlogyPRSS in its compilation and launch in 2013 at the International UFO Congress in Fountain Hills, Arizona. Although it has received accolades from many for its appearance and span of information, the idea of activists, bloggers, experiencers and the like actually participating has been largely ignored even with direct invitations. It seems folks are more interested in just posting on FB in groups and rarely engaging their audience in conversational threads. What is the reservation?
Of course UFOlogyPRSS isn’t the only resource or attempt at getting people to become involved. There are other websites where clusters of folks have come together to share information, philosophy and potential answers to the challenge of interaction with intelligence beyond human. Social Media has made it possible for people to share information across a variety of groups and pages, yet the tone of the conversations are still somewhat adversarial when it comes to doing the right things, like opening up discussions that matter for our survival.
Sid Goldberg made a comment in a conversational thread recently that I feel applies to us. He said, “In time, all things will become obvious.” Can we begin to acknowledge the obvious more openly instead of allowing the proliferation of disinformation and public distraction? Is the old adage of ‘follow the money’ appropriate still (seems to promote division) or do we need a new one like ‘follow the resonance’ to be our new credo? We’ve got to have the discernment to do so and it takes all of us to agree to move in that direction, whether icons are carrying it out or not.
Is there a particular call to action now? Perhaps it is simply to observe from a distance and let the truth bubble up in front of you. Collaboration is imminent, yet happens through those willing to do so. For now connecting with us on FB, liking page and joining the group and Twitter is a good step, perhaps even joining our newsletter or follow UfologyPress RSS feed. We’ll be able to keep you informed of hopefully relevant stuff. We won’t spam you.
