The Sociology of UFOlogy – an inquiry with Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove

Sociology of UFOlogy

For decades people have been curious and investigated UFOs in myriad ways. What is the sociology of UFOlogy today? In the late 80s Tim Beckley introduced New Age and Alien Agenda gatherings around the country. The International UFO Congress began in Tucson in 1991 with Ret. Col. Wendelle Stevens, Jim Diletosso and Ken Liljegren’s team as support.

I’ll digress for a moment. My first experiences with non-human intelligence was in 1962, advancing to something different in 1965 which was apparently the ‘normal’ type of contact in the Midwest in the 50s and 60s, the orange cigar-shaped cloud. During that same period, UFOs were apparently shutting down ICBM silos around the globe with exquisite showmanship.

Curious and investigative, I continued my quest to know, not just what, how this kinda stuff happens. I love the high strangeness. What makes it tick? I had a lot of questions, numerous events and some experiences I still wonder about today. I had deep conversations with a lot of folks; experts, researchers and experiencers across the gamut.

I got to know Tim and Wendelle over the years. Jim and I became friends and later he recommended me as manager for The Prophets Conference (1997). It gave me an opportunity to have conversations that are extremely rare, up close and personal without interruption. Some of the folks who were there: Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Dr. Steven Greer, Jose Arguelles, David Icke, Linda Molten-Howe, Stanton Friedman, Zacharia Sitchen and 2 dozen more. I got to know many prominent folks in the field of UFOlogy many years ago, with friendships still today.

2010 began by assuming responsibility for a UFO discussion group in the Phoenix valley. We met in a community room of a local fire station. Our guest speakers included Claude Swanson, Travis Walton, Alejandro Rojas and more. We also had meditation experiments using music that produced some varied and amazing personal experiences, all of a contact nature. There were about 35 people in the room. Afterward, one elderly woman reported seeing massive ET machinery surrounding the group and ‘working’ on each person.

From 2010 to 2014 I was a vendor at the IUFOC, having moved to Ft. McDowell in Arizona. In 2013 we debuted UFOlogyPRSS.com at the International UFO Congress, with over 100 blogs from around the world in one place, up-to-the-moment material. It rose the bar for UFOlogy-based websites. It was our virtual model of folks getting along even if they had opposing views. We’ve also got a number of authors featured; podcasts and radio shows, too.

Meanwhile, UFOlogy in general seems to be challenged. Experiencers are on one side and the nuts and bolts scientists on the other with conspiratorialists scattered about in each camp. Dr. Mishlove and I take a frank and open look at what the Sociology of UFOlogy is today. Although challenges do exist, there seems to be a call for change. What that will be remains to be seen.

Here’s how Dr. Mishlove framed the interview, “Here he [Zen] speaks as a participant-observer sharing his reflections on the current community of interest centering on UFO phenomena. He describes his disillusionment with a nexus of individuals focusing on the notions of the Ashtar Command and the Galactic Federation. He describes various fears associated with the very idea of alien life forms. However, he suggests that we presently have no actual evidence that there is a reason to be fearful of UFO activity.”

In the ‘contact’ scenarios, experiencers have to deal with seemingly incredulous events and still continue with some kind of ‘normal’ life. Whether individual or family needs, the daily functional activity still needs doing. There is something else going on, though, as shows like this don’t happen if the conversation isn’t necessary, imho.

Our hopes were to address common concerns and explore a little of what else is happening. I was a willing participant in spite of my trepidation. Talking about the Ashtar Command and Galactic Federation, however real and true they may be, is not the kind of talk that garners credibility normally. There’s evidence they do exist dating back to 1952 with George Van Tassel.

Although we discussed the potential confusion with deities, there is still more confusion around the topic. George Van Tassel met Robert Short, who took on the ‘Ashtar Command’ label, used it for contrary purposes and wasn’t connected to the ‘source’ like George. I met Bob in the late 1980s and didn’t feel he had a good connection, if any, talking nonsense about conspiracy theories interwoven with an Ashtar Command that would somehow take action against the cabal. The latter was infectious and unfortunately obfuscates the truth still, imho.

Jeffrey made a delicate subject easy to discuss. We had a nice mind flight. Perhaps you’ll consider sharing this article and video.

More importantly share New Thinking Allowed. Thanks in advance.

My wife asked me to include this interview from January of 2013. She said it spoke to her in ways nothing else had. She’s Russian-born and trained pianist as well as a 3HO Kundalini Yoga teacher. She has a compelling argument…

Formal UFO Disclosure – The Big D coming soon?

Transparency is a buzz word being thrown around without much reality, yet we can speak our feelings and thoughts openly, right? Do we? Usually not, for fear of something. What?

Truth telling begins with an individual effort, an example that invites others to do the same. We haven’t been able to do that, yet. If we do that, then we can create an opening for others to do so. If we aren’t, then we cannot hope for others to do so.

What about beginning with the notion that there are no malevolent beings from elsewhere? If there were, we’d be living differently. We have a tremendous amount of freedom, yet there are some humans that are inhumane. Just like the excuses many religious folk use… the devil made me do it. No, it was a choice you made. Evil aliens are influencing our world? No, it is our choice to allow the conditions to exist.

There really does come a time that we must stand for something. Let’s stand for Truth! Now, what does that really mean? Even though we are taught that within the silence is the voice of being, how often to we go there to really listen? Even thought we know that consciousness is replete with harmony, how often do we strive to be examples of it?

Initial attempts at open contact and a willingness to share technology were met with deceit and reverse engineering for military purposes. If someone is going to show you who they are by such activity, believe them. In the game of life, you get one chance. If you have the keys given to you and screw it up, why should you have another?

We really don’t take things seriously here, except to carve out our own little niches and protect our secrets so we can have a nice life. We believe there is an omnipotent all-loving universe yet we act completely the opposite. Giorgio Piacenza is right, it is all about consciousness. What does that mean, though? Can it be studied empirically? Doubtful, yet it is replete with numbers, patterns and symbols.

Authority and conviction can be felt at the deepest levels of our being, in our gut. This is the center of indigenous consciousness, the intuition or connectedness we can feel with everything. Emerson once wrote, “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” The question is, “Why lie?”

‘Are we ready for a formal Big D?’ We can’t handle a little d yet, imho.

Alien Agendas and Anal Probes

Aliens and Anal Probes – Jason Colavito

www.jasoncolavito.com/aliens-and-anal-probes.html

On the other hand, author Zen Benefiel self-published a book called Alien Agendas and Anal Probes (2014) that promised to investigate “the science behind the anal probes” and what these probes can tell us about why the aliens are really here. But his book isn’t a history so much as New Age-influenced fringe speculation, so it is of limited use in peeling back the layers of the abduction experience.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that Jason was gracious enough to include my book. I think he missed the main point, though. The science behind the ‘probe’ is stated fairly simply and succinctly, probably too simply for peering eyes to grok. Moments after having the experience I was reflecting on why it happens.

The first thing that popped into my head was not some New Age influence speculation. I’m a math and science buff, intelligent and investigative beyond most. Math and science are so present in the constructs of the universe, beginning with the foundation of sound and light condensing, or lower the vibratory rate, into form.

Advanced races that can travel across time and space are familiar with the natural laws and order of the universe, so they are well aware of the effects of adjusting frequencies. If you consider the known quantities of information about the nature of frequencies and the subtle adjustments that produce amazing changes in our bodies and environment, it just makes sense that the same adjustments can be made with technology applied to our bodies.

The simple science regarding the anal probe is that the sphincter is an end point, as well as the genitals, of the perineum nerve. The nerve is directly connected to the spinal nerve which, according to the ancient arts, is the path of Kundalini Serpent Fire when it is ignited. So, we can ignite this Fire (Divine as it is) with practice AND it can be accelerated by procedures.

What happens when the vibratory rate is adjusted by such measures? Usually an orgasm is the first thing. That’s why the mistaken idea of sexual experimentation comes, no pun intended. We are so oppressed in regard to considering or discussion anything of a sexual nature that folks haven’t been able to transcend their paradigms. In time, we will.

So, thanks Jason, I appreciate the opportunity to address the subject again.

Luba was reading one of my books just moments ago on this Sunday morning, coffee in hand, when she burst forth through tarmac toward the sun again. Okay, couldn’t help the Moody reference. Alien Agendas and Anal Probes is what she was reading, then announcing with every ounce of surety in her that she was shaken to the core and this was exactly what she had been looking for… in Tom Campbell, in Kundalini, all the books and videos, everything… that this was the core of our existence – why we are here and what we are doing.

Farbeit for me to resist the opportunity to share her excitement, and my amazement at her discovery and how much it meant to her as a keystone experience. She thought everyone needs to read this and see/feel for themselves how much sense it makes.

And so the excerpt:

We might see it as God dwelling in man again. I eventually understood it as cosmic consciousness condensing into form and becoming aware of it.

The result, according to the narrator, is a sense of oneness and willingness to operate free from intellectual pursuits driven by the desire to dominate the environment. Each individual soul has purpose, like a thread in the tapestry of life that is just as important as any other thread. The beauty of the tapestry is dependent on the threads, no matter the color, diameter or length.

When all the threads become aware of the tapestry, it becomes alive and whole – able to be viewed. Individuals are like fractals of the tapestry, able to contain the original yet finding form, fit and function within it as their own filaments combine to form the whole.

Just in case you want to read the whole thing…

What IS all this Ashtar Command, Galactic Federation of Light and Confederation of Planets stuff about?

What IS all this Ashtar Command, Galactic Federation of Light and Confederation of Planets stuff about?

Some embrace it, some fear it, some welcome it as a natural progression of consciousness, some believe there is nothing beyond this world and some could care less, thinking it is all delusional manifestations. Many think the AC is an etheric organization based on a 5th dimension or plane. Others believe those etheric beings are incarnate as well, bridging worlds, as it were, as part of the ‘ground crew.’ It would only make sense that the latter would probably be evidence of their reality, eh? Cosmic consciousness resides in all of us, but those of the Command tend to find it early and live it internally long before others recognize their cosmic connection externally.

Where do you stand? …or are you sitting on the sidelines? Are you willing to explore more regarding the remote possibility that these things exist? With your permission, of course, prepare to have your mind expanded and/or your experience validated – whichever works best for you. I don’t pretend to have all the answers as my own experience continues to offer the need for better questions and deeper exploration. Still, I have enough to be of value in my contributions to the quest for understanding our multidimensional reality. Quantum sciences suggest strongly that there is much more capacity to our awareness.

I’ll give some brief information here, along with a bit of my personal experience to date. Admittedly, my experience is a bit off the charts when it comes to ‘normal’ situations even within the realms of abductees, contactees, expanded intelligence and spiritual visions. I often feel bereft of methodologies to translate sensations and vibrations into an intelligent stream of consciousness; articulation has evolved lately in life. You see, in the realms of this experience there is no need for names. Identification is by vibration… tone, and the rapid-fire streams of consciousness are like the thousand words in one flash of light, nearly incomprehensible.

Recent interactions in the thoughtmosphere on a dimension quite familiar provided another opportunity to share space with AA Michael in a rather interesting conversation regarding standing in truth. We were standing in an open area  lined with trees in the center of a mountain community, resting on the grass amongst the villagers who surrounded us. The discussion was intense and the hundreds around us were completely silent, composed yet startled that one of their own would engage Michael in such fashion. Our eyes were locked and our hearts open, yet the intensity of our energy exchange intimidated the group. We so completely loved each other we merged in our conversation about the living word in each of us and all those around us.

Our discussion was about the stand for truth, acknowledging the attempts of many to disregard the mandates of the Order [Command] and continue to stir fear-based information into the unsuspecting consciousness of those being awakened. We need to hold ourselves and each other accountable for our actions and behavior. The slumber on the ships is over, its time for the consciousness to expand in the bodies of those who’ve come to serve in their highest capacity. The Council is in agreement and its time to move forward, removing the cognitive dissonance of the human consciousness within the body in the process. Aligning intentionally with global peace projects is a facet of the work, internally motivated as evidence.

What gives me the authority to speak? I didn’t just suddenly decide to wave a flag or grab a microphone, although I’m good at the latter as a facilitator and speaker. Click on the video in the upper right to confirm. I’ve had numerous confirmations of my connection, from being the son of Ashtar and Athena to being the commander of the New Jerusalem. I Am still questioning my role and the rest is how open I can remain to the flow of energy in my heart. If you have access to the inner realms where we gather, go there and inquire or ask your favorite psychic. It’s proven to be effective when they are clear. I can offer much, but it will mean nothing if you have no direct experience of this connection on your own.

I trust my experience. I encourage you to trust your experience in the face of what others might tell you. Do you have one, an experience that is? Do you trust it? If not, why? If you have no direct experience from which to question, then might I suggest inquiring further. My book, Cosmic Conundrum, might help. I tested mine for decades before finally giving in to this apparent path. Let me share a little of how things have developed and my reason for the season to share. It was not an easy path nor was it easy to accept my own destiny, but I have been confronted with it for decades. Now that I’m stepping out in the light, so to speak, I’m sure I’ll have a different sort of confrontation.

I’ve been working on this integration of cosmic consciousness and capacity for translation for nearly 50 years now. It continues to lead the evolution of consciousness and understanding cosmology. I was first contacted shortly after I became aware that I was adopted, by a voice that sounded so large that I thought it was coming from everywhere and through everything. “Hey You!” It came from within. I had just turned 6 at the time. Nearly 50 years later, I have grown to know many realms and worlds of experience. My articulation is getting better even though it is still a great challenge, but it is a lot more fun now. Wordsmithing is a wonderful way to express concepts and experience whilst keeping a vigilant eye out.

A couple of years later [after the voice] I had numerous nightly trips to an orange cigar-shaped cloud several hundred meters long, possibly a quarter mile in length. I actually watched myself through the entire experience, up to reaching the perimeter of the cloud. It was pretty much the same every time. At that point I would wake up in bed the next morning, feeling like I couldn’t wait until the next time. I had this intense anticipation and excitement, but I could never talk about it. Now I know this was my initial education amongst peers in what one might call the real Star Fleet Command. Sound incredulous, doesn’t it? Hey, you don’t have to believe it. I’m as much an observer and reporter as experiencer. I’ve learned to detach.

These trips happened about once a month or so over a two year period. I had enough sense to keep the experiences to myself at that time. I had tried to talk to my parents about the ‘Hey You!’ voice and met with incredible denial. I did not need to convince them at the time. My truth and reality was enough and that ‘knowing’ continues to serve me well to this day. It doesn’t really matter what I think anyway; what happened indeed happened. Occasionally there were witnesses just to keep me sane, although at times we all were simply left speechless.

The first couple of decades of my life were full of wondrous experiences, most of them naturally mr-naturaloccurring. I have to admit that, like many of the 70’s, I experimented with psychotropics and stumbled into the path proffered by shamans and some mystics. So many ego deaths and transformations, leading one back to the main entrance clean and clear. My mind, according to my parents, was quite brilliant and completely replacing our entire body’s cells every 7 years means no loss of brain cells. I not only excelled in school, I learned to go inside, too. The inner worlds are rich with experience and wisdom that few choose to entertain, let alone release their own constrictions about death and the ‘other side’ of life.

Sometimes there is no boundary between the two, but the mind has to be willing to be free of liability, limitation and excuses…. engaged by the challenge to change as one becomes aware. In essence, we must suspend any and all belief systems learned to date in order to discover truth. I found myself in such a place as I was asked if I was willing to die for what I believe in. As a result I made my first journey into and beyond the ‘White Light’ that nearly everyone who has an NDE describes.

 I recently spoke at an International Association for Near Death Studies 2010 annual conference and addressed the possibility that the NDErs have better access to the greater consciousness of the Galactic Federation and specifically the Ashtar Command. One who has experienced total release from the body and returned with a new living awareness is quite open to contact by soular contract. After all, the Ashtar Command is said to be the administrational arm of the local Universe Council regarding fulfillment of soul contracts. That is, if you believe in that kind of thing. Truthfully, belief doesn’t

What do you intend to do about it? I will not claim to have all the answers. I’ve been given the direction we must take… Unity for Harmony of People and Planet. The rest is up to all of us and how we develop our group consciousness, group dynamic, and collabreation (collaborative creation). It is more than just co-creating as the individual efforts become part of the collective, feeding the whole project with the best we can offer in this or any other world.

Indeed, it has to be done with skill and precision. The existing systems of this world facilitate our understanding and development of project planning and implementation on whatever level it may occur. There is a process of perfection with everything, including the seemingly mundane daily business of living on planet earth. Shifting the consciousness to acknowledge each waking moment as a miracle in itself helps to open the doors to perception.

Ashtar Command

You might ask, “What the heck is the Galactic Federation and/or the Ashtar Command?” Is this some kind of Star Trek fantasy of science fiction? Is it some mass hysteria about an evacuation by space aliens? C’mon, you mean these people actually believe in extraterrestrials, cosmic beings, Jesus Christ and other spiritual masters all working together? Next thing you’ll say is that aliens are among us. They were certainly at the International UFO Congress and Contact in the Desert, among other events to date.

Believe it or not, it could be true. Some try to align Ashtar with Ishtar or other mythological characters, too.  Hey, whatever floats your boat. It’s a bit more serious for some, though. Oh, and they don’t like to be called ‘aliens’ for those of you who care. Truth be known, they are ancestors of the human race, family of origin so to speak. I am Zendor. I’ve heard it that Kumara or Melchizedek are sometimes included, but my friends just call me Zen. I come from a place everyone knows, but few have visited in this life.

There are many folks around the world who claim allegiance and seem to be aligning with the Ashtar Command and the Galactic Federation. The mission of the Federation, as I have come to understand it, is to support the advancement of planetary civilizations; to promote understanding of universal laws and a new living awareness as a result. Ascending to these standards in planetary administration promotes harmony among people and planet.

The mission is simple, yet no direct intervention can occur. Only after a civilization demonstrates understanding the symbiosis between people, planet and the cosmos does open contact occur. Eliminating war and establishing life support systems are results of applying universal principles. Every civilization, however, goes through cycles of development – from savage to serene. We’re adolescents in the scheme of things today.

Most of the self-acknowledged representatives are online only and deal with akashic readings, channeling messages from various sources or organizing online communities. They often seem more confused than productive because of the obsession toward conspiratorial notions about some dark cabal. Quite honestly, they seem to have some cognitive dissonance – a disparity between beliefs and deeds.

Some call themselves commanders, write about specific ships or give general messages to the ‘public.’  I feel that human filters tend to misinterpret communications from such benevolent beings. Some collective actions are intentionally service-oriented, promoting harmony.

The revealing of truth happens more organically, seeding consciousness and letting it grow. I take it all with a grain of salt and do more to challenge my experience than blindly accept it. If true, and there is a bridging of worlds, time will provide the opportunity for acknowledgement and validation. It will sure be interesting to say the least.

Perhaps this wasn’t enough and you’d like to know more. Try this.
