New Year’s Resolutions – Timid or Transformational?
Wasn’t the ending of 2017 an amazing experience, with all the disclosure inferences and shenanigans? Happy New Year, Earthlings… (exo)Politics anyone? We all know that disclosure is an ongoing process and that those truly involved aren’t about to dilute their work with attention getting antics like some folks seem to be doing. You know, everything is helpful in getting people to seriously question the reality of the times we live in, right?
Now this probably won’t be read by those who are actively engaged in politics at this time. Still, we have some exciting news about the progress of our work here in Arizona. It may come as a surprise, but the reality of bringing any kind of exopolitical experience to Earth might just begin with some of us so inclined to engage the system. This cosmic 2×4 was slapped up side my head back in 2012 when I got the impression to research the existence of the Independent Party in Arizona.
What I found was that nothing had been done and, apparently, it was there for me to do. The domain structure for the Party, after looking at other States, was www.independence(state).com so when I looked for the availability of IndependenceArizona.com there was no claim to date. I immediately purchased it and went to work on the website, creating some basic content around the theme of ‘Making Sense Common.’ Other things in life garnered my attention for several years until just after Christmas 2017 when a comment was made on the site that precipitated a face-to-face conversation and ignited things again.
On New Year’s Eve we registered the trade name ‘Independent Party of Arizona’ and formed Independent Party of Arizona LLC to get the ball rolling. Our New Year’s resolution became getting the Independent Party recognized by the State of Arizona, which it is not. Further research found the requirements and subsequent ancillary activities and paperwork that needs to be filed, all of which we are in process of now. Our slogan became ‘Making Sense Common’ and specifically refers to education, energy, environment, health care and social systems.
The simple side of the work is that we’ll need about 24,000 signatures to get the job done. The Independent Party of Arizona bridges parties as well as cultural communities and is what America was set up to do. Arizona has the golden opportunity to set the standard for coalescing multiple concerns and factions toward a cohesive and collaborative administration. The result of such would change the course of current deficits and inability to serve our population in so many ways. It would also catapult the use of alternative energy production through the combined efforts of communities and commercial development.
I’ve always enjoyed grassroots activity and have been involved in many local/state initiatives over the years, beginning with representing the Phoenix Indian School Preservation Coalition in 1991, a coalition made up of representatives from 18 of the 21 Tribes in Arizona intending to have the newly designated Indian School Park designed with indigenous Native American features. I was the non-Indian who was asked to chronicle the details and present them to the Mayor of Phoenix and his staff along with the Parks and Recreation Planning Sub-Committee.
I was also involved the the Arizona Coalition for Peace, Justice and the Environment and worked to help coordinate quarterly meetings around the State of Arizona for several years. It was a most profoundly life-changing experience that helped me to realize how much ‘help’ is available from ‘other’ sources to those who are involved in positive change in the world. After all, the consistent message from the ETs is that we must step up to affect changes in our world. They will assist from a distance, but it is up to each one of us to be practical in our application of understanding consciousness and the process of change/evolution for our world.
There was a collection of brilliant and inspirational speakers gathered for The Prophets Conference in Phoenix back in 1997, among them were Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Jose Arguelles, Lyssa Royal, Hunbatz Men, David Icke, Robert Anton Wilson, Joan Ocean, Dr. Steven Greer and Zecharia Sitchin. As the event manager I had opportunities for conversations beyond the norm in private, an opportunity I took advantage of to inquire and understand further how the integration of consciousness and community can be further engaged.
In that regard, it is an honor to be tapped on the shoulder to perform at this level. My intention has always been to be an example; someone that my parents, children and grand children are proud of even if it takes a long time for them to recognize the triumphs over trials and tribulations from a slow-moving and resistant paradigm that has been in place for far too long. It’s too late for my parents, at least my adoptive ones. Still, the sensation of being tasked with this challenge brings me to new levels of integrated activity with my cosmic crew. Perhaps it might inspire others to step up and apply their skill set toward building the new.
The secret to change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new. Socrates
I’m breaking from the normal posts for a moment. This last fall a very magical event occurred not necessarily related to Ufology, yet the overtones certainly have their foundation in common with the quest for getting to know our neighbors better. It appears some Arcturians (tall Greys) were involved in the set up as well, from a few perspectives. We don’t often have physical evidence or references to share, yet this is one that we think you will enjoy.
Luba Brodsky was born and raised in St. Petersburg, Russia. She was trained as a concert pianist and teacher of piano and music theory. She also had an intense curiosity about her star family relationship, feeling like they were present in her life from very young. After a stroke in 2008 which paralyzed the right side of her body for some time, she willfully brought herself back to playing and teaching piano. To meet and listen to her now you would never know.
Engaging life after her recovery, she became intent on exploring her spiritual path which led her to studying Kundalini yoga. Not only did she study it, she engaged a Kundalini teacher training program; a grueling 26-week program that took her to a new living awareness of energy and matter. During this time, her relationship of 26 years (interesting correlation, eh?) ended rather abruptly. She began researching ‘twin-flame’ information across the web and watching Tom Campbell’s videos. Life was about to change, again, only for the better this time.
I, your curator, had been going through his own dark night of the soul regarding relationships, eventually coming to terms with being comfortable alone. It was a tough process and yet, as soon as the choice was made, a dream/vision occurred that changed everything. The essence of the dream was a hug, a simple hug (NOT), that led to a complete merging of the two into one energy. It was something I’d never felt before then and at 60, I didn’t think I ever would.
A few days later I was invited to an outdoor music festival where I met a guy, Brent, who also happened to be in that 26-week Kundalini yoga teacher training class. He invited me to the graduation a week and a half later, which was odd but immediately accepted. It just felt right. On the way there the next Sunday, October 28th, I had a thought about the kind of environment it would be and that, of anywhere, it would be a great place to meet someone. I didn’t really think I would.
Upon arrival I heard an old friend yell out my name as soon as I got out of my Montero. She was a member of a UFO Contactee group I had facilitated for a couple of years and just three days older, both of us having birthdays at the end of June. After a short conversation she had to go, but not before saying she felt there was someone there for me to meet. ‘Yeah, right,’ I thought. Brent and his son arrived just as we were invited inside for the graduation ceremony.
Brent and his son sat in front and I sat in the back of the room and waited. While waiting for the ceremony to begin, a young woman walked in front of me. We had no eye contact, but my heart had this really strange sensation as she walked by, like it flipped in my chest. Well, I got the clue and paid attention. I felt really odd because she looked about the age of my daughter, who is in her late 30s and I felt uncomfortable at the possibility.
She was eventually called up as a graduate, which I had not assumed earlier, Luba Brodsky. ‘Hmmm, Russian?’ I wondered. When she spoke her ‘I Am statements’ as part of their process her Russian accent was obvious. I still wasn’t sure what to do about this strange feeling. Once the ceremony was over, the back of the room cleared out almost instantly, it seemed, and we were left standing there, looking at each other.
Awkwardly, I introduced myself and told her I found her very intriguing and would like to get to know her more if that was an option. Her first response to me was, ‘Are you reading me?” I felt like I’d invaded her space and apologized for the gaze, admitting that I knew I didn’t blink much but it wasn’t intended to peer in so deeply. I told her I felt something different and had to explore it. She said it was okay and that she had felt something, too. I asked her to lunch, even offering to prepare it at my home, having found out she had just moved a few minutes away a week prior. Oh, and she wasn’t my daughters age thank God, she was a Piscean born in 1968.
That is how it began. After a few times together and discussing a wide variety of topics, including extraterrestrials and my involvement with them the conversation shifted to one of inquiry. She acknowledge that she’d felt ‘them’ around and just a few years prior finally saw one of them peer out through a wall, just sticking his head out slightly and enough for her to see him without freaking out.
She had been in meditation seeking entrance into the Akashic records focusing on a couple of questions: What is my purpose in life? Who am I? The answer she received was, “Mother and Teacher” and then she saw a wall that looked like a TV screen filled by static that seemed to go on forever. The face of a grey gently protruded from the wall for a moment, then receded. She felt an intense love from it.
I asked if she’d like to find out more about him or them and see if one had been ‘assigned’ to communicate with her. I felt there was an opening for it to happen. I’ve had numerous ‘sessions’ with others of like fashion over the years. This was the first for this kind of relationship, though, and it felt very important. I was nervous. I wasn’t sure it would even work, but I got over my insecurity and moved forward with the process.
I had her relax and did a little guided process to prepare her for the introduction, almost like preparing for a hypnotherapy regression only there was no regression to occur. I had her imagine a stairway with a door at the top and describe it to me. She did. I asked her to walk up the stairs and open the door, letting her know that as she did there would be an opportunity to engage ‘them’ and possibly meet her ‘handler’ as I called him. I refer to the three tall greys I’ve known since childhood as my ‘handlers.’
The door opened and she saw a room full of cherubic-looking figures dancing and running around like they were in some kind of joy-filled moment. I thought it was kinda funny, but a good start for her introduction. I asked her to ask their ‘leader’ to step forward and introduce himself (since she already felt it was a male). One stepped up and announced himself as ‘Nick.’ Then I asked her to ask him to show her his true form and before I got the sentence out she said he had morphed into a tall grey. We had a short conversation, which was all we could manage because she was so excited and just wanted to talk about the event.
Returning to Relationship
The ‘twin-flame’ information she shared with me later showed we had all the characteristics from several lists she’d found to share. It was spooky cool to say the least. The fact that she came from Russia and my ‘mission’ of harmony among people and planet was perfectly served with a partner from ‘our’ arch nemesis was simply surreal, let alone the nearly infinitesimal nuances we shared in our behaviors. I proposed to her a couple of weeks after we met.
I moved her, her 12-yr old son and 83-yr old mother (who speaks only Russian) in the first week of December. It seemed the only appropriate thing to do since we were spending every moment together that she wasn’t teaching. My work schedule was my own so I made myself available, of course. It took a little bit of time with her son, still reeling from the breakup of just a few months prior. Once settled, Nick began making regular visits and on one of them, told her she could trust me with her life.
Now she wasn’t so accepting of this alternative reality she was experiencing on a regular basis. Although it was exciting and intriguing as well, she had a hard time bridging worlds and being comfortable with the dual citizenship, so to speak. There were many more discussions of how and why we came together in what seemed to be such an effortless fashion. Sharing the process with some online groups seemed to stimulate deeper conversations with others online, too. We are a living example of how the universe (God, Creation, Reality) conspires to bring harmony and purpose to those who truly seek it.
Life for each of us certainly has had its challenges. We stayed the course, didn’t give up and yet gave up everything that got in the way of our natural spiritual paths. The result was simply a magical and mystical experience of a reality we had only dreamed possible. The funny thing is we were both driven by this inner knowing that it could happen if we became submissive to the process. That word ‘submissive’ was an issue for her for some time, especially as a powerful woman let alone being Russian. There is a huge difference in cultures from American women.
Fall Equinox 2017
Fast forwarding to our wedding on the fall equinox of this year, 2017. We got our wedding license on the spring equinox, so the timing seemed perfect. The location was at the base of Bell Rock just outside Sedona, Arizona. Our officiant, who happened to be a retired UFO lawyer and known as the ‘vortex jumper’ in Sedona, had taken us to the top of Bell Rock a few weeks prior. We’d been introduced through a mutual friend and were considering the ceremony on the top as well, but after the climb we decided the attire of choice would be too much of a challenge to take up and change on top. Our witnessed weren’t the best climbers, either and we wanted a nice and safe event.
The ceremony was perfectly timed at the moment of the autumnal equinox. The words Peter, our officiant, spoke were quite elegant and referenced the many realms of creation we all know exist and honor. Luba and I stood on a couple of rocks and I stepped across the gap as a symbol of traveling across the void to become ONE. It might have looked a little silly to passersby (Bell Rock is a popular place) but we didn’t care. It was the action of intention that mattered to us. We got some nice photos as well.
When we returned to Peter’s place, a short distance away, we were greeted by two other Top of Bell Rock Club members, Amanda and Kyle, visiting from California. We struck up an wonderful conversation as we shared the photos of our ceremony with them. Allison was a contactee as well and had been learning how to channel, mainly Arcturians, for the last several months. We later made the connection between the tall greys and the Arcturians as being the same ones Luba and I had been encountering for most of our lives.
That evening after a wonderful dinner at Cucina Rustica, we were sitting on the balcony of our honeymoon suite looking over The Ridge Golf Course when Luba felt Nick’s presence. It was totally unexpected for her and a bit overwhelming as she acknowledged what was happening. She always wonders if it is just her imagination, even though she said she felt like they were trying to pull her out of her body so they could speak with her. I attempted to soothe her in knowing she was safe and that she just needed to be present with them for a few moments was all.
Of course I was curious of about the conversation and asked her what they were saying. I could tell she was really hesitant to say anything. It seemed like whatever they were saying was almost too much for her to believe. Still, I prodded until she gave it up… They were pleased at the her union with the son of Ashtar was the first thing Nick had said to her. It had her wondering about her sanity and whether she was making it up in her head. I told her the sensation she was having of their presence was certainly something that she couldn’t just imagine. It had to be real, based on her prior experiences as well.
Her experience brought up a lot of things for me that I’d held at a distance for some time, opting for a more ‘normal’ lifestyle of steady work and playing golf occasionally. I have to say I’d hoped that our union would indeed create more opportunities to explore our cosmic connections with the Galactic Federation as many of us know it to be called. My commitment to ‘the work’ had also been contingent on having a life partner that was also congruent with her knowledge of other worlds and our ability to flow within them and ours as well.
I’m sure there will be more to come. Thanks for tuning in.
When I first described this type of UFO experiencer in May of 2014, I was surprised to see a controversy result. My description of the so-called “prime contactees” was labeled by some as “elitist.” I was accused of trying to create a popularity contest in which ordinary contactees’ role would be seen as insignificant next to the “supreme status” of the so-called “primes.” Fellow senior contact activists angrily informed me that I was being “divisive.”
Well I certainly didn’t intend to trigger such a controversy. Responding to those offended I wrote a second article with the title “Prime Contactees Are Just the Tip of the Iceberg.” The original controversial blog in an edited form is presented as Part 1 below.
As part of this introduction I should point out that the term “contactee” is in many ways outdated. The “ee” ending suggests a passive role in English, as in “employee” or “payee.” The “er” or “or” endings suggest a more active role as in “worker, soldier, mentor.”
For those who have joined a contact team, or have carried out contact protocols on their own, reaching out to the intelligence behind the UFO phenomenon can involve much mental, physical and most importantly spiritual work. Thus in my view the designation “contact worker” is superior to “contactee.”
In addition contactees historically have focused on the bizarre and often mystifying nature of their contact experiences. In a sense their personal encounters have been the message. This was a fairly constant feature of the UFO clubs during the 1950s that had thousands of members and celebrated the alleged encounters of contactee subculture celebrities like George Adamski and others.
“Contact workers” I imagine in contrast to “contactees” envision their ongoing encounters as part of a worldwide transformation of consciousness that links the flying saucer phenomenon with necessary solutions to the seemingly insurmountable problems that humanity is facing. I am referring to the scourges of war, hunger, racism, and global climate change. So for those of us who are part of what I like to call “The Contact Underground” let’s drop the term “contactee.” Since we are doing a lot of work on this issue, another alternative could be “contact workers.” If this sounds to “old left” the alternative “contact activists” will do just fine as well.
WHO ARE THE PRIME CONTACTEES AND WHY ARE THEY IMPORTANT?
And the potential for creating a new kind of social movement. Joseph Burkes MD 2015
As the UFO truth movement grows and increasing numbers of young people are excited about the possibilities of encountering intelligent life in the cosmos, the special role of a very select group of UFO experiencers should be examined. In the early 1990s I became an organizer for a number of contact groups. Since then I have observed a small number of remarkable individuals who more or less match the criteria for being what I have termed “prime contactees.”
A “prime contactee” is a UFO experiencer that has some of the following characteristics,
1. Apparent contact with UFO intelligence from childhood or as a young adult that involves special training in consciousness-based communication and the concomitant development of other advanced psychic abilities. This often involves meditation practice as a youth and is typically initiated without any apparent parental or other adult supervision.
2. Repeated sightings of UFOs when other people are present to verify that the “primes” can share their ongoing contact experiences with others.
3. A sense of “mission” involving informing the public of the importance of contact, or playing a supporting role for other contactees who are educating society on this topic. Forming new contact groups or joining existing networks is another manifestation of activities derived from a sense of having a personal mission.
4. In the most advanced “primes,” perhaps people like Dr Steven Greer or the man that I call “Misha” in my reports, they are likely having ongoing mental communication with UFO intelligence. This might even include direct telepathic communication (voice in the head) with the intelligence responsible for flying saucers.
5.This last feature is particularly risky for primes. If the larger society learns of such capabilities, those individuals will be mistakenly labeled as a “kooks” and be subjected to intense ridicule. Their sanity will almost certainly be questioned and forced psychiatric evaluations could also result.
6.More importantly if the primes’ special link to an extraterrestrial intelligence becomes known by the control groups, (those powerful clandestine forces attempting to keep a lid on the UFO situation), in my opinion at a minimum the primes will be subjected to intense surveillance.
HOW THE CONTROL GROUPS OPERATE AGAINST THE CONTACT NETWORK
In my opinion there is a high probability that private contractors working for the control groups are being recruited from government intelligence services to monitor and even harass high-level contactees. Thus these servants of the status quo probably see the primes as “enemy agents of influence” working for what I like to call “a higher intelligence agency.”
In some very unpleasant instances prime contactees have even been attacked by what might be called “psychotronic” technology. I personally learned of the effects of such attacks on contact activists when I was closely associated with Dr Greer’s Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence during the years 1992 to 1998.
Under certain circumstances the control groups in a less confrontational mode might even attempt to co-op primes with offers of money and access to privileged information available only to “insiders.” This kind of co-opting effort reportedly happened to Dr Greer while attending a UFO conference in the spring of 1992. He shared this information with the CE-5 Initiative Working Group Coordinators, including me, Shari Adamiak and Wayne Peterson. Alas these last two prominent contact workers are now deceased.
Indeed the passing of many of the first generation of North American contact activists is one of the reasons why I am initiating this “The Contact Network History Project.” My hope is to share these narratives with the current and future generations of contact workers. Jeff Becker’s anthology “Paths to Contact” of which I am one of many co-authors has a similar goal. I recommend it to all members of the network.
THE PERILS OF BEING A PRIME
To be a prime contactee I imagine is a heavy cross to bear. If the special relationship with non-human intelligence is made public, critics will likely deem primes “insane.” On the other hand once their extraordinary ability to attract UFOs is established within the flying saucer subculture, the primes are often turned into celebrities. They are treated as if they are special (which they are in many ways) but unfortunately some may start believing that they are better than everyone else (which they are not!)
So the contact network may need to protect prime contactees, not only from a doubting larger society in which mainstream media will make fun of them, and from the control groups that may try to “neutralize” them, but strangely enough contact activists may need to protect the primes from themselves as well, from an egoism which is reinforced by people’s tendency to engage in hero worship.
THE DANGERS OF EGO -BASED CONFLICTS
This last point is apropos to what I believe happened to the Peruvian based Rama contact group back in the 1990s. Rumors of plagiarism and the use of donations to fund what was characterized as affluent life styles, appears to have played a major role in causing that once vibrant group to implode. According my sources within ranks of this very important organization their numbers were decimated. In fighting among the leadership resulted in much disappointment that turned into bitterness.
Uncontrolled adulation in susceptible individuals might “turn” prime contactees from the altruistic path of serving a nascent “contact movement” to the more selfish position of insisting that their supporters should service them! I am referring to the tendency of contact groups to take on aspects of cults.
“Servicing” the primes might involve giving them large amounts of money, often under questionable circumstances, the granting of sexual favors and in general satisfying their personal needs to feel important and to be the center of attention.
From decades of social cause activism during the 1960s through 80s, I learned that in order for radical reform campaigns to succeed they need to fire up the enthusiasm of the grass roots and not focus on the many strengths while ignoring the weakness of those leading them.
THE BIG PICTURE
This analysis is offered within the hopeful framework that a benevolent and technologically advanced ET civilization is at this moment interacting with humanity. My hope is that their presence will inspire us to create an Earth civilization based on peace, cooperation and social/economic justice. I believe this is true because such ethical advancements, including the forever banning all war, is in my judgment a precondition for any alien culture to travel across the sea of stars.
In the absence of such radical cultural advancements in an ET civilization, the powerful energy systems required for interplanetary and/or inter-dimensional travel would be applied to create weapons so powerful that their evitable use would destroy the very civilization that created them, thus preventing them from getting very far out into space beyond their star system of origin.
THE BENEFITS AND RISKS OF ADVANCED ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES.
Currently there is much speculation about the possibility that if the advanced propulsion systems that allow flying saucers to operate were downloaded into our technological culture, then tremendous benefits would accrue. If advanced technologies were used for peaceful purposes, then global warming, environmental pollution and even world poverty and hunger might be eliminated.
In the short term our achieving this kind of sweeping political and economic transformation is a big “if.” For such dramatic events to happen, the control groups’ campaign labeled the “UFO truth embargo” in my judgment would have to be self-curtailed or overcome by a stronger force. Such a force I imagine could very well be a skillfully organized and adequately funded future “contact movement.” This would by necessity involve not hundreds of activists worldwide, (my estimate of our current strength) but rather require millions of dedicated participants.
In addition negotiations with the so-called “ETs” to obtain their technology would likely only occur under conditions of world peace. This would be necessary to ensure that advanced technologies would not be used militarily against the alleged “aliens” as well as these technologies being used against ourselves.
THE FUTURE OF THE CONTACT MOVEMENT
This long-term plan to create a contact movement will require the participation of countless activists. As the ranks of contact workers increase, as it appears to be happening now, then I imagine that the importance of those that I call prime contactees will likely decrease.
Creating a new kind of social movement linking UFOs to solutions for the major problems confronting mankind is indeed a very ambitious project. Critics will likely say, “It’s an impossible dream.” My reply is that we will either evolve as a race of intelligent beings or we will destroy our civilization by war and man made environmental catastrophes.
If creating a bright peaceful future both here on Earth and in the cosmos is called “impossible” by the so-called “authorities,” then I have but one thing to say to contact activists, “Be realists: demand the impossible!”

Who are you? Really… Who are you? This workbook is an expository guide to facilitate multidimensional awareness. Are you a spiritual being having a human experience? Would you like to wake up the human to the spiritual experience? A point of perspection (introspection/perception) dances in the balance of the seer’s vision.
Have you suffered from the limited experiences and thinking of others? Is it possible that you might have galactic origins from elsewhere in the Milky Way?
Many are awakening to the potential of galactic citizenry and/or spiritual connectedness beyond the notion of reincarnation. I can help you engage contact experiences and garner opportunities for developing your personal abilities and/or ‘gifts.’
This psychospiritual coursework is designed to bridge worlds, build relationships across dimensions and transform lives. What you may think you know about extraterrestrials, guardian angels and spiritual beings will be challenged as you explore the pages of this book.
Points of view differ regarding our origins and the development of human beings through their ‘dominion’ on earth. What if there was more to the story that we haven’t even explored yet because we’ve been too terrestrially focused in our ‘outer’ living environment? What is your natural state of being? Is there more? Would you like to find out?
Clearing the cobwebs out of the soular mind begins with questioning the very foundation of one’s belief system. It doesn’t hurt at all and it does lead to deeper understanding. This path is not for the timid, but your courage will definitely be rewarded.
A great companion book is StuBBing My TOE on Purpose – A Seminal View of Consciousness, Cosmology and the Congruence of Science and Spirituality, available on Amazon and CreateSpace.

Author Zen Benefiel offers a healthy dose of spiritual wisdom for an “out-of-this-world” reader experience. Some dynamics which make this book a helpful guide are the author’s out-of-body experiences, his education and unique intelligence, combined with (but not limited to) an aptitude for research, diverse content synthesis and organization, complete with workbook opportunities for reflection on the provided material.
Zen embraces psychological, scientific, intuitive and mystical explanations, offering practical exercises for meditation, releasing emotional blockages, mentorship, deepening the experience of “flow,” and more. Where relevant, Zen gives simple and effective definitions of spiritual terms for comprehension, and methodical processes for readers to achieve similar results with the suggested exercises. The author’s knowledge of mental-emotional transformational methodologies makes for well-explored and deeply penetrating lessons on the self-help topics.
Woven by the common thread of his mystical experiences, Zen continually provides insightful logic regarding the ultimately inevitable connections among science and spirituality, connecting within, and galactic citizenry. Meaningful personal stories from the author’s physical life experience are steeped in wisdom. That said; the author’s emotional vulnerability is a great asset to humanizing the mystical experiences he lives out.
Zen’s authentic sharing creates a good foundation for us (the readers) to contemplate and realize the unique reality to which we have embraced and have been exposed. The book reveals compelling evidence that we can each go beyond our normal waking consciousness to connect in higher and finer ways. The material provided ties into an overall cosmic picture, complex enough to stretch our ideas of reality and cosmic responsibility while, at the same time, practical enough to not lose accessibility in the lessons offered.
Ethereal experiences are occasionally scoffed at due to popular misconceptions of an ethereal person’s resulting incongruence with normal reality (aka, “airy-fairy”). However, sound reasoning and pragmatic advice ensure that readers like us can learn from the offerings even if we aren’t able to relate the material in its entirety. For example, Zen offers practical guidance on the most basic and often overlooked necessity of balancing and resolving our emotions. Since such healthy (and practical) behaviors aren’t yet common sense for mankind, we could clearly argue that not only is a person’s reality highly relative to the beholder, but reality is also highly relative to how many people are beholding it. In other words, common sense is relative to what a group considers common. Even then, a high commonality doesn’t necessarily indicate truth.
The book finishes with a long anticipated, full-blown explanation of the author’s involvement with the Ashtar Command and galactic citizenry at large. It completes with thought-provoking inquiries that are artfully designed, not to coerce, but to make the reader ponder their own spiritual and galactic responsibilities. At minimum, the existing platform from which the author invites the reader to make positive considerations for spiritual living is a love-based one. If you are a fan of the Ashtar Command and the Celestial Alliances, you’ll like this book even better. Regardless of what you believe or experience, this versatile book can be of benefit to you.
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.
That science involved an intimate understanding of anatomy and use of nerves that are direct pathways to the spine and central nervous system, specifically through the perineum. So this is not some new age stuff with general and nebulous statements about love and light. It’s exacting and perhaps even credible when you understand the technology.
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. That may seem new-age, though quantum sciences and a the model of Neppe and Clark speak of consciousness tethered with space and time across multiple dimensions.
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. It is an undeniable experience when it happens, a definite perspective adjustment.
What happens when the vibratory rate is adjusted by such measures, using technology to subtly affect a nerve like the perineum? Usually an orgasm is the first thing. That’s why the mistaken idea of sexual experimentation comes. 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.
