Frequency Shift: a metaphysical exchange (part 2)

I’m learning to embrace the new. It’s not what we don’t do, but what we do that matters. Life is a great show, we came here to enjoy it. Nature is such a wonderful example of life on Earth and what is possible in our own lives. There is no self doubt coming from the birds I hear singing on my porch. There is only living and breathing. From now on, when someone asks what I’m doing, I’m going to answer, “I’m breathing,” because the more we think about our doubts, the more they multiply.

Thoughts are frozen actions, the heart has no fear until we think about making a mistake. It is a cycle which we begin in our minds and watch as it happens in reality. It’s as if our mind knows it messed up by thinking the negative thought in the first place. I must over come self doubt, even though a lot of it was programmed into me during my young life. I have to make friends with fear and overcome self doubt. Fear is not negative, it is normal. We have to chase it and become friends with it. We live in a flash, there is no time for fear because all we have is NOW.

How can we let go of who we think we are and see ourselves for the true self? When I think of myself, who do I see? Is that what others see? What is important: what I see or what you see? — Judgment — Do I have to win all the time? What is abundance? Abundance is when you realize that you are worth it. That’s what I am learning. “Be well and do good work” a Garrison Keeler quote. So to all of you I say: Be well and do good work.

Frequency Shift: a metaphysical exchange (part 1)

Change will not come if we wait for somebody else or some other time. You are the one you’ve been waiting for. You are the change that you seek and desire.

I feel I should share a piece of my thinking with everyone. Some people might think I’m a bit egotistic to think this way, but here goes. “We can never lose, and we can never win, because we are the trophy. We are the prize we are striving for every single day and night.” Now when you begin to think this though, remember there is something we often forget. Remember this: our job in this life is to become the best version of ourself. Now, how can you become the best version of you? Do you know what being in your “heart space” is about? I don’t know more than you, I am just another person trying to figure out this whole process of “waking and sleeping.” I am learning that we, as humans, are the original technology and in learning this I know I can change the reality of my surroundings. I realize that this sounds crazy to others, but if you know me you know that I do have the power to manifest anything I put my mind too — even accidently. I use words, thoughts, and actions to change my frequency. Have you ever tried to change yours?

 

The Librarian

The Librarian

by Thadd Presley

I went to the library today looking for a new book to begin reading and I came across a book by Johnathan Kellerman titled “True Detectives.”  I haven’t began reading it yet, but I’m hoping it will be a great book because he has many books and I’d like to find a new author to really sink my reading brain into. I feel like I’ve been writing so much lately that I have forgotten what it’s like to have a really good book to read.

With all that in my head, I came home and saw this meme on my facebook wall.

librarians

I thought about it for a while and it occurred to me that Librarians are not really generals at all. They are more priest-like and the head of a long and important line of The Illuminated. And being just that, Librarians have trained long and hard to reach their position. Yet, in modern times, many of the people who use the library don’t realize that the man or woman behind the desk who stamps the date in the back of the book, actually spent many years in college learning what is known as Library Science and many of our local librarians have earned the title of Library Science Masters.

Yes, there is prestige in being the librarian. There is honor and history and science behind these humble people of knowledge and we have not been taught to give them the respect they deserve. We are being systematically desensitized to the amazing achievement which is the library.

The Library

The first libraries existed over 8000 years ago! The Mesopotamians wrote on their history and ideas on clay tablets to preserve the knowledge they wanted to pass onto the world that followed. Thousands of these clay tablets have been discovered in the palaces and temples where they were stored and arranged long ago. These palaces and temples were the first real libraries.

The Egyptians wrote their knowledge on papyrus scrolls, which they also stored in palaces and temples. The most famous library in history was in Alexandria, built around 300 BC. It held nearly 700,000 scrolls.

The Romans planned the first system of public libraries and by the year 4 AD, wealthy citizens has began to build their own libraries. Suddenly, there was 28 libraries in Rome.

When the Christian Era began, libraries became part of the churches and monasteries. Monks read and copied books, so in that time many of the libraries were due to their hard work.

By the year 1400 the University of Oxford began to organize it’s library.  It is still the largest University library in the world.

In 1850 the English Parliament created our current library system and it has grown into the institution that it is today.

Every word of knowledge, every definition, and fact ever known has been written in a book, so that future generations, and the current one as well, can find the knowledge they want to know.

And now, the internet has been invented, but without the words having first been gathered and arranged in books it would have been forgotten long before the internet age. It was these books and these people who made libraries possible that has shaped and re-shaped our world.

The librarian is not just the person who tells you that your book is over due. The librarian is the priest, the palace guard, the university head, and a monk all in one, because it is the librarian who holds the key to all the words, knowledge, and traditions the world has ever known.

I Love Numbers

I have always loved numbers. I love science and equations and nature. I want to know if math is a natural phenomenon ( a natural product of nature) which we have just began to figure out (like we are trying to figure out gravity) or is math a language that we have invented to understand things like gravity and counting?

I love words as well, but I know that words are just part of a universal language which we invented to describe the natural phenomenon we call thoughts. We think it and we use words to describe it. But math is there and can’t be explained any easier than it already presents itself.  1+1=2 and that is that.  Sure I can make it harder, but that’s not the point of math. Where at times words are better when they are drawn out and made a bit wordier with description and unimportant details, but math is not like that. Numbers can not be added on and drawn out to make an equation better. Extra numbers are quickly crossed out and ignored.

Math often comes in the form of unknowns. Such as F = (G x (M1 x M2/r))  and for a long time G was unknown and still could change due to existence of gravitational waves.

So, I love math and I love words and more than anything I would love to win the lottery tonight since it is upto 1.5 billion dollars.  Could you imagine 1,500,000 thousand dollar bills? I can’t.  But look at the numbers below.   It is only a thought experiment, but is it possible?

The Lottery and the numbers there in:

Everyone has a 1 in 293,000,000 chance to win the jackpot. So why doesn’t a rich someone buy 293 million tickets at 2 bucks a pop and spend around 586 million to win every single prize offered.  Even after taxes and everything taken out they would still make a profit.

Now, a gloomier side of math. Here are just a few numbers about the U.S.A and it’s national debt:

I here about the National Debt all the time these days. Either from Donald J. Trump or from my friends and family. I know the debt is 18 trillion dollars, but that is only a small percent of what the US really owes.

Here is what the government owes to the American People, since it has spent the money the accounts paid into by Americans: Social Security is owed 14 trillion, 27 trillion to the Medicare Liability Fund, and 100 trillion to other unfunded liabilities.

There is also another 5 trillion on top of the 18 trillion owed externally that is not talked about openly.

In total the government owes far, far more to the American people than it does to external entities.

To put everything in perspective, the national taxe revenue is 3.3 trillion a year plus 1.6 trillion from the state level, while congress has agreed to spend 3.7 trillion each year for 2016 and 2017, which adds up to 5.4 trillion more in debt.

Other numbers show a worse picture – median pay in 2000 was 28,135  and in 2015 it was 29,035.  median home cost in 2000 was 165,000 while in 2015 it rose to 293,000 dollars.

pay checks went up less than a thousand dollars in 15 years, but home prices went up over 100,000 dollars?

unemployed is officially 7,800,000, but the actual number is 15 million. (this is the numbers washington has)  — and 92 million people are not in the work force at all.

anyway, I’ve been thinking about numbers all day because of the lottery.

if everyone has a 1 in 293 million chance to win, than Donald Trump could buy 293 million tickets at 2 bucks and spend 586 million and win every single prize offered.

A Writer

Writers

They write
They type,
They’ll edit many times

Move words
’til they’ve
perfected every line

A writer
A lover
of words and page

Writers
aren’t born
somehow their made.


I’ve was a writer even before I realized what being one meant. It was more a nagging suspicion than a revelation. There was always something inside of me trying to get free. My first experience of wanting to create a story was after reading a Conan the Barbarian book. I saw the map inside and drew my own. I tried to write a story to go along with the map, but I never got around to it. I was in seventh grade at that time.  I didn’t actually write any stories that year, but I could see the characters on the map and I began to hear character’s voices in my head. I knew where they lived, where they were going, and what they had to do.  Although, these characters and plots have been with me for a long time, I have failed to write every story,  but I’ve finished plenty along the way. I truly feel that writing is something that chose me.

Old Man’s Last Say

The Old Man’s Last Say

by Thadd Presley

“The worms can have him, for from them he was made,”
the lady remarked as she looked on the grave
and chopped at the dirt with a long handled spade.

She had buried her husband late in the day.
“The sun is too hot, we’ll wait for the shade.
I know he will rot, but he’ll not do it today.”

He was put away quickly, with no friends there to pray,
And when it was over, I remember no-one had stayed.
“Now that he’s gone, I’ll can get married this spring
with all of his money, we can buy the best things.”

But, that wasn’t the end of what that man had to say.
The ground suddenly shook all around the grave.
A great voice rose up and declared from the clay.

“You might have succeeded in ending my days
but you’ll never outlive your hate and disgrace.
I curse you this day ’til the last breath you take
A widow you are and a widow you’ll stay,”

To a cold, whining wind, his voice then gave way
and the widow never married and wasn’t seen since that day.
I come to this hill and stand near their graves.
I remember what mother told me on her final day.

Years later, in tears, she weakly proclaimed:
“I killed your father. It was my greatest mistake.
But love will always conquer a heart filled with hate.”

The Universe is inside of us

Have an of you ever heard the music created by Symphony of Science. It is really an experience to listen to it, even though it’s a collection of scientist’s talks set yo an auto-tuned track. I’ve always been truly impressed by the songs they have.  Take a moment and listen to “We Are All Connected.

Carl Sagan said that the Universe created humanity because it wanted to know itself. I take it a step further and say that we have eyes because the cosmos wanted to see itself. I also believe that all of our atoms were created inside of stars. Inside of each and everyone of us are pieces from all points in Time and parts that came from many places in the Universe. It’s amazing to think that at one time the elements we are made from did not exist. Therefore, before we were possible, iron and oxygen and many other atomic structures had to be imagined and created. Only later did it become possible to have organic machines as complicated as we are.

There is a famous photo taken by on of the Space Telescopes that looks like an eye.

The last time I wrote about metaphysics and our amazing existence, I told how I thought Super Clusters looked like bigger versions of neurons in our brains. I explained how our consciousness might continue to exist as part of this larger structure even after our bodies die. The similarities of such large structures and tiny ones inside of our bodies can not be a coincidence. There is a bigger picture out there and we will someday find it.

You can read my last post on super clusters and neurons here:  http://fictionweekly.net/what-happens-when-we-die/

The galaxy above is amazing, but below I leave you with another beautiful representation of how our Universe exists right inside of us.  Our eyes look more like galaxies than the galaxy above looks like an eye.   Isn’t this unbelievable.

What happens when we die?

Some of you don’t know that I am a student of metaphysics and the global consciousness and tat we have the ability to alter our reality. Some of you only visit the blog to read poetry of short stories.

This has been a hard year for me. I’ve lost many friends, which has me thinking about life and death tonight. Here is my summation of what could be possible.

Does our brain waves simply disappear when we die? Do we have a place to go after this world and this body has deteriorated? Besides our spirit or soul, what lives on after death? Many of these questions can’t be answered with accuracy from this side of the life/death threshold. But, if we look around us we see many things that resemble other things many ways. For example, an atom resembles a mini solar system, a river system looks like a lightening strike, and something recently discovered was the amazing similarities between super clusters in space and neurons in our brains.

Then, we have maths that go deeper than all of these discoveries which we use to try and understand the amazing underlying complexity of the world and how it is built up from simple mathematical expressions such as the Mandelbrot Set, and the Fibonacci Sequence.

All of these amazing discoveries proved over and over that we are part of a bigger picture and our understanding of the universe isn’t complete by any stretch of the imagination. The mystery of dark matter and dark energy is only one example of what we don’t know.

The fact that a neuron looks like a super cluster give me the idea that all of our memories, our experiences, our lessons, and more than anything our personalities have a larger interface to connect to once we pass on to the next phase of our experience.

Someone once said that “the Universe created us so that it could know itself better.” Maybe it was Carl Sagan.

The Greek believed that what we saw “out there” was “schema.” Nothing but the reflection of ourselves. Sometimes I wonder just how much ancient knowledge we have lost, because know that we can see 13 billion years into the past and we can see the movement of brain waves along with the ability to create living, working neurons, it seems the Greeks might have been right. The universe is a like us.

My theory is this: when we die, our information goes from the operating system inside our craniums and uploads to the giant operating system in the sky.

Unite

In 2012 I became the bass player for the band Minor Nine. We never got famous, but we made an album in 2013 and had a blast playing shows. For almost three years I practice Saturday and Sunday and played almost 200 shows. During our time together I learned a lot about music and a lot about getting shows.

It hard to keep a band together. Everyone has a role to play as a member of the band, as well as a life they much continue to live at home. The two lives are often at odds, leaving hard choices to be made weekly.

We did however create amazing music. We had a diverse group of musicians. Even though there was only 4 of us, the age range when we started was 13, 28, 34, and 60.  We all had different backgrounds and somehow it worked magically. With a set list of 30 originals we set out across Tennessee and played show after show meeting really cool bands and even cooler people. One show we played with Swedish metal band Avatar is my claim to rock and roll fame.

I quit the band for many reasons. I suppose the biggest reason being the band falling apart from the inside. I had better things to do than watch it crash, so I took my gear and went home. Simple as that.

I created a few videos for the music we created.  The one that follows is “Unite.”  The words came from a poem I wrote years ago and the music and voice is Rex Green. He and I have a special ability to create music. I don’t think I’ll ever meet another person like him and I’m sorry we aren’t working together all the time.

At one time, it was amazing how we were climbing in the scene. Now, I’m not talking about fame and fortune. I’m only talking about the little music scene in Knoxville, Tennessee.Yeah, I know it’s not Long Beach, but it was our patch of the scrap yard and I enjoyed it.

The music in the video was created by Rob Ruddick, Matt Fahey, Rex Green and Thadd Presley.  I hope you enjoy.
