In The Space Is Everything

July 2, 2015

This communication is about sharing information through a mental practice and about finding that state of mind, that place where there is no stress and there are no fearful thoughts causing stress or agitation to your mood. We will be finding a mood or state in which all is at rest without stress and there’s no need or desires arising within the mind searching and analyzing. We will be trying to find that gap between thoughts where all there is is presence. Our goal is to fully experience the moment without thoughts and their consequent creating their direction and perpetuation. Let’s just make an effort toward focusing consciously and purposefully in the gap between thoughts. Notice how long it takes before thought arises and see if you can ignore that thought and focus again on the moment between thoughts. See if you can capture even briefly what it’s like to be without thoughts pulling you here and there.
Thoughts that make sense are complete and there might be a reverberation of gratitude or reflecting upon the beauty of it these thoughts of gratitude are the end after themselves and are complete and they allow you then to go back to noticing reality from an awareness that’s open without distraction from thinking. Thinking is an abstraction or a reaction to the present moment. Our mind is always evaluating reality, what it perceives, what it senses in its awareness, its interpretation of what’s going on. If the thoughts are fearful they will generate stress and a strategizing by the mind to find freedom from stress or the fearful thoughts.


We are all One? Is that True?

May 1, 2013

Dansquat I just had an interesting thought. It’s out of response to hearing that we are all one quotes from people. They say it and then people ooh and ah like it’s some amazing truth that they want to latch on to for some reason. I suspect they want to stay blind to the truth so that they can continue to live their life doing what they do and not have to make any changes.
Well the way the life Earth Being “One” behaves is that it replicates it’s sense of I’ness, individuality, the experience of solitariness to each set of eyes. We feel separate because in a sense we’ve been made to experience our own sovereignty or solitariness. Thus we acquire knowledge and understanding that is unique to us individually. We could even become a Hitler and kill millions of people in the most horrendous ways. (is this not “Evil” or Bad?) Yes it is and anyone of simplified intelligence would agree and say that this is not the compassionate and benevolent way of the source of life, God. Unless you want to say God was Hitler and loved what he was doing.
“Keep your eye simple ” Jesus says and your whole body will be bright. Things can’t  be contradictory and nonsensical and then say it’s a mystery so that we can’t question the validity of a theory, or belief. The Trinity was one of those silly teachings that made no sense at all and people would defend it by saying we aren’t meant or aren’t able to conceive of these things. Sure there might be so much we don’t understand but if you get a teaching that is not understandable then it can’t be verified to be true until we get that understanding. There’s where science comes in. scientists are wanting to find the truth to what is. Was the Earth created in 24 hour days? Of course not. It must have meant epoch days rather than our Gregorian calendar. So likewise  there may be teachings that make no sense at all and are either totally false or have another explanation and people have not questioned them.
People seem to get huffy when you question their beliefs. They think because somebody said this is what a teaching meant that it is the truth. It might and probably isn’t the truth. What makes you think that people from days long ago even knew what they were talking about? Did they have a closer relationship to God? I say NO! Did they know something we don’t? NO! Did they have a closer relationship to God with God revealing all these teachings? NO! Are most religious people pretending they know because they are afraid to admit they don’t know? YES!
It’s time to start really digging in and get truth and understanding out of all the information we now have. Question authority is a quote. I say start questioning the beliefs that have been handed down to us by pretenders of those who think they know.

Carbon Sequestering

Does it kill all the living creatures where this CO2 is saved?
clipped from www.i-sis.org.uk

Ocean storage involves injecting the CO2 at great
depths, preferably below 3 000 m, where the pressure is sufficient to compress
CO2 into a dense liquid that sinks to the sea bed to form CO2
lakes. This option is seen as so risky that it is now generally discredited.
It is not a permanent store, and the CO2 will eventually dissolve
and disperse into the overlying seawater, acidifying the oceans with drastic
consequences on marine life. The oceans are already under great pressure from
pollution, destructive over-fishing, increasing commercial exploitation and
global warming; most worrying of all, they are failing to absorb the normal
share of anthropogenic CO2 released into the atmosphere [10] (see
Save our oceans, save our planet series, SiS 31), Also, these storage
sites are impossible to control or monitor, and are effectively prohibited
by current international legislation [3].

New Disease from Genetically Modified Fodds?

May 28, 2008

Morgellons Disease May Be Linked to Genetically Modified Food

Monsanto Corporation who has the megalomania agenda of owning all the food in the world and has forced thousands of farmers around the world out of business and thousands have committed suicide (supposedly) because they did not want to buy the genetically modified seeds from Monsanto who is seeking to replace all grown foods and seeds with their Patented life forms. Most countries in Europe have outlawed it but poorer countries are forced to make the change, especially countries in South America who have been bullied by U.S. armed forces to do Monsanto’s bidding. The data is growing daily about the horrific disease.
