Proprioceptive or Simply Preposterous?

ZenGardenProprioceptive or Simply Preposterous?

Kosta asked me to share some insights and perceptions of my engagement with intelligences beyond human. We call them by many names, yet I’m not sure any of them fully embrace or encapsulate their advanced nature. Extraterrestrials, intraterrestrials or ultraterrestrials have been used. Dr. Burkes calls his experiences ‘contact downloads’ and I’m sure they are more than proprioceptive hallucinations.

For me, just after being told I was adopted, the experiences began in my early childhood as an internal voice, a deep male one. Perhaps it was because I had a question of origin. That initial conversation was followed by some guidance through out-of-body-experiences that led up to some monthly ‘views’ of myself getting out of bed, climbing out my window, walking across our neighbor’s backyard to a fence that surrounded a 10-acre cow pasture.

I’d climb the fence and walk out into the field, only to rise up toward an orange cigar-shaped cloud that was perhaps a hundred feet above. My ‘observer’ would unite with my physical body as I entered the cloud and then I’d wake up in bed the next morning, sometimes with a nose bleed, but the feeling I had was that I couldn’t wait to go back. It was amazing and not at all fearful in the slightest.

Years later I was in a bookstore in Muncie, Indiana just before moving to Arizona. A book literally fell off the shelf in front of me, landing cover up on the floor. No one else was around and, of course, I thought it was just a little weird. Nevertheless, I went over and saw the cover, Aliens Among Us by Ruth Montgomery. I picked it up, turned it over and the first paragraph I read (paraphrased) said that the most common contactee experiences in the Midwest during the late 50s and early 60s was the orange cigar-shaped cloud. I had one of those domino moments, where a whole string of things fell into place.

Many other things have happened since then. Probably the most significant is the awareness that no fear is involved in questing after understanding. None of my experiences, even those with very intense energy, have ever felt ominous. In fact, they’ve felt just the opposite. My encounters have all felt like a sense of family, extended as the case may be, yet nevertheless familiar and ultimately soothing. I know that others do not share that sense from their experiences. It is a challenge to be free when you feel like you are not in control of the situation, be it non-linear or non-local events beyond the any previous experiences to date.

What I’ve learned is that, through my own knowing and corroboration from others, we are being asked to step up in our individual awareness, consciousness and understanding. Even Paul Hellyer (retired Canadian Defense Minister) has admitted that there are no malevolent races interacting with us and he was part of the Military Industrial Complex for quite some time. The message we all seem to be getting, in our own ways, is that we need to learn how to get along and clean up our lives and the planet. My favorite version of the ‘New World Order’ we’ve all come to have concerns about is simply ‘Harmony among People and Planet.’

We first must understand we don’t know everything and that some things we think we know may not be quite what we thought. For instance, the recent discover of the ‘God Particle’ or better known as the Higgs-boson was not what the scientist thought as they observed what looked like the decay of a particle to them. Instead, I believe it was a rip in the fabric between dimensions at a sub-atomic level that they witnessed repairing. They proved the reality of MTheory and not Higgs Field Theory, in my humble opinion. Most contactees are quite familiar with the concept of multidimensional awareness and even have an experiential understanding in many cases.

I have a sense that the process of understanding more about our human evolution includes the notion that we are cosmic consciousness condensed into form, becoming aware of the fact as we increase our knowledge both scientifically and spiritually. The two seem to spiral around making sense common in that regard… multiple senses, that is. We’re growing by leaps and bounds as we, as a human race, are being able to explore the nature of our existence without the constraints of belief systems. The internet is making this possible. We can research and explore revelations that bring a sense of resonance in the search for ‘truth’ inasmuch as we can relate to it from our limited perspectives. Some things just make sense, implying that there is much more to know and understand as our experience grows.

So, what does this all mean? Are we facing our future with faith or fear? The messages we get, from across the spectrum of channelings, direct ET contact, telepathic transmissions and even crop circles tend to reveal the great potential we have in restoring natural order to our lives and the planet. There is a consciousness beyond common, if you will, that has been written about for millennia by some. Perhaps it is this consciousness, an awareness that there is truly nothing to fear from outside or off-planet, which will continue to assist each of us in our growth toward freedom and open contact with our star families.

I’ve been ‘told’ that this new world order, the one of harmony among people and planet, will happen in my lifetime. Well, I’m 57 now. I was told that when I was 18. I’ve noticed a tremendous growth in awareness leading up to the Winter Solstice of 2012. Now we need to implement that awareness back into the existing systems on Earth, using the skillsets we’ve been given and/or acquired through our personal and professional endeavors. I’m doing it in practically every aspect of my life through authoring books, building websites, facilitating groups, in my transformational life coaching and business consulting. Maybe you don’t have all that going on, yet you can be at peace in your current daily life and look for ways to connect with the greater intelligence. Trust me; ‘they’ want to communicate. We need to learn to listen within. That’s where the communication takes place, especially when we’re quiet.

My advice, if I can offer any at all, is to believe there is a beneficial force that flows through everything – including the engagement of off-planet intelligence as well as the person right next to you. The core of my experience has been and will continue to be Faith, Love and Trust. I know that may be a stretch for some. I can only encourage that you make that stretch and ask for help whenever you feel challenged. That help may come from a ‘contact download’ or sighting or simply a kind word from another. Just be open. Thanks for lending me your eyes. Seek truth – it’s neither proprioceptive nor preposterous. Namaste…

Do ETs have a Master Plan for Humanity?

Do the ETs have a “master plan” for contact with Earth civilization?

burkesTwenty years ago I was having a crisis in self-confidence concerning my lack of psychic ability. I had been the Los Angeles CSETI Working Group Coordinator for less than a year and felt inadequate to the task for a few reasons, most notably in the psi area. I “sent out to the universe” that if I was going to continue to serve as a coordinator in Dr. Greer’s campaign, then I was going to need to get some assistance.

Help arrived in a series of channeling type of experiences in which I “met” a number of alleged ET beings who told me “their version” of what it was all about. The information was “downloaded” into my consciousness as series of encounters while in an “awake dream” like state. These anomalous experiences in my mind’s eye took place mostly while on board ET craft where my “instructors” explained complex ideas in detail.

I was led to believe their “mission” to our planet was unfolding over centuries, that highly trained ETs interacted with us according to detailed plans and that they would assist our civilization to peacefully evolve to a point where we could join a larger community of star peoples. This is the standard fair for many contactees.

Do I believe what “they” (whoever they might be) “told” me is true? Well I guess the answer is both yes and no. Yes, in the sense that I have an emotional need to believe that a positive outcome is possible from my involvement in this campaign, otherwise I might have chosen a more popular doctors’ hobby like golf these past two decades. Kidding aside, as a general principle I have to question the veracity of this type of highly subjective communication. It is thrilling to get such narratives via mind, but since the “lessons” were in my opinion co-created by me and the so-called ETs, I can’t help wonder how much of what I experienced was a reflection of my inner desires and not necessarily the presentation of any “master plan” by benevolent star folk.

So is there an ET master plan? And if so, how do we find out what it is?
How do we know whether it is really “their plan” or just our wishful thinking? For argument’s sake let’s assume a “master plan” really does exist .Why should experiencers bother to consider following it? Or should we revise it for our needs? And how can we reasonably expect to explain such strange notions as a “master plan,” to the rest of the UFO subculture let alone to the larger society?

I understand that these questions are highly subjective and speculative in the extreme. Nevertheless UFO enthusiasts in general, experiencers in particular and especially contact movement activists, those whom I like to call “contact workers,” in my opinion need to become more self aware of the unseen forces that are at play in the contact drama that is unfolding all around us.

UFO intelligence in my experience interacts with us at a number of levels, conscious in terms of sightings, and unconscious in terms of the strange surfacing of memories of contact experiences, or a strange sudden desire to learn about UFOs that quickly becomes so passionate that it is labeled an “obsession” by family and friends who would just rather not think about such ‘foolish” things.

Increased understanding of our psychological motivations while interacting with non-human intelligence will help us explain to others our strange passion to investigate the UFO mystery. It is a phenomenon that in my opinion triggers a kind of “manic denial,” not only in the control groups who should know better, but also in the larger society that finds contact superficially exciting as a sci-fi fantasy but also deeply disturbing because of its tremendous import that the world’s people are just beginning to recognize.

A response

ZenGardenImho, the questions you ask are of the highest import in order for us, whether contact worker or layman, to get to the core of the experience and make some sense common. Evidently this was rippling through the thoughtmosphere as I woke up this morning with these very questions on my mind. I’ve had a variety of experiences that has left an indelibly and indeclinable notion in the depths of my being. What you note is that we have the question: “What do we do with this?” as currently under consideration.

Not only are there psychological considerations, but I also believe there are physiological considerations as well. The ‘downloads’ not only affect the mind. They often sensitize the body in ways that are uncomfortable at best in the beginning. The PSI factor goes deeper into the consciousness of both body and mind as an inseparable unit which it is already, we just tend to treat it separately. The intelligence that is interacting with us is already in a holistic system framework, something that humans are still grappling with from the onset of systems thinking in the 1990s. So what of the mind/body/spirit complex and the multiple levels of interaction? It is important to view the levels as both distinct and yet symbiotic.

From a project planning perspective regarding the ‘master plan’ it’s obvious there is much more to the roll-out of any plan. What are the goals? Within those goals, what are the objectives for individual or group achievement? What are the skill sets needed for the work to get done? Who is involved? What skill set do they bring? What is their level of commitment? Who can act as Translational Leaders? Translational Leaders are those adept at connecting, mediation, teaching, behavioral economies and social engineering. They demonstrate an uncanny ability to knit together different constituencies and institutions , brokering relationships and transactions across different levels of political, economic and social organization.

One of my experiences demonstrated the depth and width of the efforts across consciousness, industries and social architecture. To be offered that kind of view is mind-boggling enough, let alone attempting to articulate the experience without sounding like an obsessive town crier. Joe’s comment on ‘manic denial’ is not the case here. In fact the ‘view’ is consistent with any strategic plan carried out on a large scale. Most of us just don’t consider the magnitude of the ‘big picture’ because we are too busy attempting to understand on individual experiences. It’s similar to walking down the street and noticing that most people will not establish eye contact because they are busy looking down for whatever reason. What happens when we begin to look up?
