GGGGGooooooooooooooLLLLLL!

[W]hen a mother in search of food and shelter for her children must pass by shops filled with the most refined delicacies of refined gluttony; when gorgeous and insolent luxury is displayed side by side with the most execrable misery; when the dog and the horse of a rich man are far better cared for than millions of children whose mothers earn a pitiful salary in the pit or the manufactory; when each “modest” evening dress of a lady represents eight months, or one year, of human labor; when enrichment at somebody else’s expense is the avowed aim of the “upper classes,” and no distinct boundary can be traced between honest and dishonest means of making money– then FORCE is the only means for maintaining such a state of things.

-Peter Kropotkin

This is an expression of solidarity with all Brazilian workers involved in the struggle for social justice.

Sunday Matinee: Consciousness, Quantum Physics and Being Human

Bonjour wonderers!

I thought my fellow seekers of the Transcendental Other would appreciate this share. It’s nice to see the reasoning behind the primacy of matter that has dominated 500 years of reductionist thought being upended in our lifetimes. The idea of a dead, random universe should finally be laid to rest.

You know folks, you really are infinite beings. Those that have had this experience know exactly what I mean and often want nothing more than to share it with others. Seeing another trapped in the illusion is akin to seeing yourself experience turmoil. When you become aware that the aspects of self that you’ve been conditioned to identify as “I” are merely the outermost layers of the onion, you’ll realize that you’re soooo much more that the base criteria of self worth imposed by the patriarchy. Western thought dating back to Plato’s tripartition of the soul has been aware of this, and yet somehow we lost this wisdom during the “enlightenment.”

Self observation and knowledge are fundamental to working towards any higher state of consciousness. With time, you can learn to observe every emotional state of the “indweller” without becoming identified with the emotion. Depression, happiness, anger, lust, these are just fleeting experiential states of being that rise and fall like ripples on a pond. If you can learn to separate your consciousness from the feeling, you can actually observe the arising and impact of these states of mind on yourself.

If you would like to probe this further, start with something simple like laughing. Observe yourself the next time you encounter something humorous and explore the nature of the experience.  Ask yourself, “Who’s actually laughing?” Another method by which you can begin to “know thyself” is to look at a work of art or listen to a piece of music and catalogue the experience as it happens. Conduct a live account of what’s happening to your emotional state as you experience the work or composition.

I wonder what happens to this experiment when we realize the sheer folly of self definition by aspirational consumerism and all strive towards the Good? But enough rambling from me compadres, enjoy the presentation.

One love,

A bIt ’bout Oneness

Hey Soul Rebels,

Sorry about the absence as of late but I hope it’s okay for me to blame it on the monsters.  If you need evidence just look under the bed.  Trust me, they’re there. It’s not for a lack of effort to conceive the alternative, but my life cannot not include a desire to try to solve the mystery of itself. I’m not saying alternatives are impossible as the world is filled with varied form and favor, but this journey from the birth canal to the awning grave is not without a consuming desire to know not that which the eye can see, but whereby the eye can see.

While able to shun it for much of my life, a man must swim with the current lest he be overcome by the force of the river. And the river is mighty amigos, very mighty indeed. I am glad to have this forum to share what I unearth with you however. After all, there are no discoveries, only revelations. For those who may argue otherwise, the universe was entangled long before we “discovered” entanglement.

I recently stumbled across this 3 stage gnosis of oneness by Thomas Keating and it just clicked. I hope the vibe resonates with you similarly.

Essentially the gnosis of oneness consists of the following stages:-

The gnosis of oneness begins with a truthful realization that there is an “Other”

What follows next is a deep and profound yearning to be like the Other

Finally one comes to the realization that there is no Other, as you were one with the Other all along. There is only the One.

Truthfully folks, life is so fleeting, it’s over before you know it.  The ride is an illusion and when you reawaken your connection to the inner world you’ll once again remember this bit of forgotten wisdom. Besides, there is no river!

One can only hope that this realization is accompanied by an awareness that the same ideological thread underpins both the unfettered slaughter of the Iraqi people and the Trail of Tears. Medals for murder have always been maneuvered to manipulate the muddled minds of minority. Murder is murder and no state stamp of approval makes it justifiable. Ask yourself why does society pedestalize war profiteers like Jeffrey Immelt and imprison John Gotti? Is it because the blood spilled in the desert is brown? There is no difference in the mindset of men who consider profiting by violence to be acceptable. Or did G.E. convince you that it only made toasters?

The parade of prophetical personages by corporate interests chomping at the bits to insert rancid market ideology into the awakening of humanity has sought to define oneness and criticism of the status quo as mutually exclusive spheres. Somehow any discussion of oneness cannot include the criminality of the established order. Please don’t fall for this ruse folks. A true understanding of oneness demands that you speak out about injustice anywhere, as it’s a threat to justice everywhere. So said a man far wiser than I.

One love,

HJ
