To Learn Something about Anything

 

“The Willingness to Learn Something about Anything”

 

“Life comes down to our willingness to wonder about something and having the courage to know anything.” —  quoted from the Universe to Thadd Presley

When I contemplate original ideas and create art, I feel invincible. Absolutely nothing can measure up to the things I dream and bring into reality. Nothing can take away the emotions I release into the world as long as they truly come from my heart and mind. I’m not just another creative power of the universe. I know it comes off as weak and unimportant sometimes, but my power comes directly from the source of all things. The Creator entrusted me with certain creative powers and I use them to create my world and the worlds of those closest to me. What I create is both a gift from me to the universe and a gift from the universe to me, working in unison with powers and beings with no true description in our dimension. A gift from a society completely incorruptible and eternal granting the ability to bring forth lifetimes of timelines and fill them with beautiful experiences and powerful revelations that are only understood by those who have witnessed the unlimited capacity to love and receive love. It’s easy to love those who loved you first. It is all about love.

Then, there comes upon me a darkness, such times I begin to doubt my origins and I start to think that I’m not from a special part of the inner sanctum. I think that I’m just another sheep standing in the field and this field is just one field with many fields. I’m just here and no one cares. A field within many fields, a fold amongst many folds, just a sheep standing alone that sounds ad looks no different than the others. I think that I’m nothing but an animal. And if that’s not damning enough, I begin to imagine I’m are tagged, tracked, and controlled — not by a great Shepard, but – by a group of sheep who have put themselves in charge and guide me from birth to the grave. Nothing I do is a surprise to anybody or anything. Especially to those I have somehow landed in the higher positions of power concerning this world. Nothing I have ever thought is original or inspired by a higher reality. Every idea I’ve had has either been had by many, perhaps by all, who have come before me or has been planted in my head by other sheep. The greatest act of creation I could ever produce is nothing but an outcome from a watered down classroom process or a spasm of unrealized dreams and incomplete thoughts. Generations of manic and depressed men and women who lived and died never knowing anything concrete about reality or the true nature of life have had these same ideas, thoughts, and dreams and just like them I’m going to do nothing with them and if I did no one would care because they are busy trying not to starve or freeze to death. I begin to think: there is truly no new thing under the sun. There are no revelations left to be had by anyone. The best I can ever do is reproduce in some dramatic way the failures of those who came before me.

The only difference I can see, if any, that separate the sheep like me from the other sheep is this egotistical, vanity-driven, self-serving act of writing down my thoughts and ideas. Why do I do it? It’s vanity in its grandest state directed from a place of fear. I’m afraid of being forgotten, afraid of dying, and besides the fact that somewhere deep inside I must truly think that I am somehow different and my thoughts are in some way important enough to be remembered.  I am so afraid of being just like everyone else, I do my best to be different in just a way as to not be singled out, but to be looked upon for a moment and hopefully understood.

So, I continue to try and capture the beautiful ideas with elegant word play. If I can introduce a clever character with an interesting story to a reader than it must that I am different and can possibly make a difference in a life. If I can create intelligent story lines and bring pleasure to people, I believe I can offer them reasons to exist beside just being alive and miserable. If I can make the lives of the people in my head produce answers to the hard questions so often asked by the people in real world situations than perhaps I will deserve to be remembered by those who are interested in knowing the secrets of life and the world in which we live.

In many ways, I am a sheep looking to my shepherd for direction and safety. But, sometimes, I look down at my own hoof-prints and think they are somehow different from the countless others. Simultaneously, I realize that believing I’m different, and even better in some ways, than all the other sheep is maniacal and delusional by any measure. Yet, it seems true. I hope my vain-maniacal delusion is harmless. Perhaps, if I’m very lucky, my insanity might somehow be helpful to someone, somewhere. It is, after all, the only way I know of being part of the fold.

Sometimes, I think everyone wants to believe, or at least should believe, that their hoof prints are some majestic, cosmic Morse code that can only be deciphered by other genius sheep who believe in the latest prophecy. On the outside we are the same, but, on the inside, we all feel we are special creatures captured and forced to live this current life as a sheep. There must be something that drives us and connects us to others who create and live with a similar burst of zealous understanding. We look alike, we talk alike, we all cry alike, and most of us don’t like the fact that we are all going to die alike.

To all the others in the fold, I tell you:

If you want to think that you are special and that someone, someday might come across an ancient hoof-prints you left in the mud and try to decipher it? Then, maybe you are!  Ad maybe there is a secret code embedded in all of our hoof-prints, and maybe there is not, but the only way to know is to document every step with honesty and precision. For is every life is trying to teach us the importance of being alive and now to enjoy life, then we must live as if we believe that life comes from somewhere and we will one day return to that place with the stories we have to tell. The only thing we can do today is have a willingness to wonder about everything and courage to push through the towering inferno of ignorance burning around us and dare to learn anything about something.

Metaphysics? Is it Science?

I have been asked about the science of metaphysics many times over the last twenty years. One of the most asked is: What does the subject cover? But right behind that is: Is it about ghosts and spiritual world?

 

I don’t think it is about ghost and the spiritual world at all. It does have the reputation of looking into subjects that are unknown to other science fields. But, that is why we need metaphysics. It does look into the unknown.

The best description I can give about metaphysics is that it’s the science of finding the right questions to ask about an unknown thing.

Once the right question is found and it makes enough sense to have a logical conclusion, then that question usually becomes it’s own science.  At one time, gravity, the atmosphere, the lights in the night sky were all approached from a spiritual angle of questioning.  But, once some insight was gained, and many hundreds of years of thinking was accomplished, the right questions began to come into view. Quite literally into view, as with the telescope and the microscope, for instance.

 

So, is metaphysics finished.  Not by a long shot.  There is still many unknowns in the world. Such as. what is consciousness?  We still haven’t found the right questions to ask about that subject.  And there are many, many more questions about our reality that we haven’t yet found the right instruments or tools to get at them in such a way as to form questions.

Is there other dimensions? This question is much about Gravity, because in many ways Gravity is still a very invisible subject to our sciences. Sure, we can see it interaction on our reality and we can quantify the force, but it’s not the whole picture.  Much of what we know as the force of gravity is not interacting with the stuff we see. It is leading researchers and physicist to consider the possibility of other dimensions which might explain where the undetectable fraction of gravity is manifesting.

What is a dimension? Where is a dimension? These are the questions that metaphysics think about and work on until a better question is formed that might lead to actual answers.

Another phenomenon, which has yet to have the right questions asked about it, is what happens after we die?  From the accounts of many people who have actually died and had what is known as a Near Death Experience, we get have sworn statements and must take them seriously.

So, we search for the right questions. What do people see?  What is the tunnel and the bright light at the end of it?

Answers then flood in from the other sciences. DMT from the brain, some say. Jesus and God, some say? It’s just a hallucination, other say.  and we can get no further that that because for one we have no way of recording and observing the actual event. And we don’t know the right questions to ask the witnesses.

Sure, we can say what did you see.  But, crime scene investigations will show you that many people don’t know what they are looking at most the time. So, we have to find tools and that involves finding the right questions to ask, so that a science — and no one knows which one — can invent a machine or a measuring device that will bring back data and concrete evidence.

So, metaphysics in a nutshell is a science that looks for the best questions to ask.

See, science is easy. Anyone can do it.

Mechanism for Manifestation

The mechanism that creates reality – your piece of reality – is gratitude. I know you’ve heard it before, but do you know what gratitude really feels like? Yes, it’s a feeling, an emotion, a deliberate way to express your happiness, but also your grief, fear, and frustration. We chose what we think about, so in turn we chose the way we feel. This action (or reaction, in most cases) determines what manifests in your life.

What makes you frustrated? Is there something you think you have earned but haven’t received? Something you have been working toward, but it’s always just out of reach?

What are you afraid of? Is there something catching up to you? Chasing you from your past life? Something you have to admit, but can’t find the words? Are you afraid to fail?

What makes you cry? Do you miss a loved on who has passed? Sure, we all do! Do you miss a part of your life that no longer exists? Is there a longing for a different lifestyle?

If you were handed or achieved everything you wanted in life, who would you be? I realize you’d be yourself, but how would you dress, what kind of car would you drive, would you have a pool in your house, or is there something special you want to do once you reach a certain place in life?

These are important questions to answer for yourself. The more you know about what it you want to have, the easier it will be to feel grateful for it. Yes, you must have gratitude for it before you have it. This is the mechanism. This make your wishes manifest in your life. This is the trick and it works like magic.

Imagine with me, now.

Once you have answered the questions above. Once you have thought about them and wrote down your dreams, your desires, your ideas, and you can see your future-self, you must sit quietly and feel what it would be like to live that life?

Feel what being that person would feel like. Let the gratitude of working your career, earning a salary, driving the car you want, walking in the home you want, giving to your friends and family, and realizing how thankful they are for you being you.

Let this grow. This is the key to your success. The mechanism to manifestation. Gratitude will bring you to the future-self you desire to be.

Secret Lyrics 2

Secret Lyrics (part 2)

In all things thou undertake
to do or think
use the gifts given unto you,
without rashness or severity,
having a reverence
demeaning yourself peaceably
to the profit of yourself
and your neighbors respectably.


Live to yourself
and the Muses
avoid the friendship
of the Multitudeness:
Be covetous of time,
it is beneficial to all men.
Use thy Gifts,
be thou ever vigilant

Secret Lyrics


Whosoever would know Secrets,
let him know how to keep
secret things secretly;
all will be revealed unto thee

and to reveal those things
that are to be revealed,
and to seal those things
which are to be sealed:

and not to give holy things to dogs,
nor cast pearls before swine.
Always Observe this Law,
the eyes of thy understanding shall not be blind

to understand secret things;
keep secret things secretly
and whatsoever thy mind desires
will be revealed unto thee.

How to Strengthen Your Will Power

What is Will and what is it capable of? How can you strengthen it?

I believe that everyone’s Will, no matter who they are, can manifest anything they desire. All they need is to train their mind to connect to the higher source and make use of it. It’s in the higher functions of the brain that the Will Power is found and finding it involves long periods of quiet deliberate thought.

One way is meditation.

The Will can be imagined as a radio that can transmit and receive as needed. The power you put behind your side of radio is up to you. It does just as you want and it will react faster and stronger the more attention and intention you place in it.

Your Will does not need to be trained, but your Mind does.

The mind is an amazing instrument and the power you put into it projects the Will just as a radio tower broadcasts a song. It is through this process that your desires manifests.

Remember that you are only half of the equation.

Once your Tower (Will) is broadcasting your desires, it will connect to other sources and manifest them into reality. One of the great rules is to not worry about how they will manifest, but think and act as if they are already in your life. Actually try to feel the emotions you would experience if you had them.

Those who have developed their mind so that the Will Power can manifest through it, has opened up wonderful possibilities. Not only have they found a great power to change their life, but this secret is the magic which opens any possibility you can imagine.

Resolve is what makes a man manifest; not puny resolve, but crude determination; not errant purpose – but that strong and indefatigable will which treads down difficulties and danger, as a boy treads down the heaving frost-lands of winter; which kindles his eye and brain with a proud pulse-beat toward the unattainable. Will makes men giants.” –Donald G. Mitchell

We are a Spiritual Manifestation

This is an except from a Jordan Maxwell talk. I made it into a poem of sorts.


I am pure spirit

I always have been

I always will be


there is inside of me

a place of confidence

of quietness and security


where all things are known

and understood

this is the mind of god


of which I am apart

which responds to me

just as I ask of it


this universal mind

knows the answers

to all of my problems


even now the answers

are speeding

their way toward me


I needn’t struggle

I needn’t worry or strive

the answers will be there


I give my problems

to the great mind of God

I let go of them


confident that the answers

will return to me

when they are needed


through the great Laws

everything that I attract in life

will come to me


It is not necessary

that I strain about this

only believe it will be so


I see the hand of divine intelligence

in the flower, in the tree

the desert and the meadow


I know the intelligence

that created all these things

is in me and around me


I can call upon it

for my slightest need

I am a manifestation of that spirit


that spirit is perfect

therefore my body is perfect

therefore I can enjoy life


Each day brings

a constant demonstration

between the universe and myself


I am confident

no matter what the obstacle

it is nothing but perspective


There can be

no obstacle

to the mind of God


which is in me

around me

and serves me now

Raising Your Emotional Vibration


Raising your vibration

And Claiming the Freewill of the Present Moment

You receive the vibration you are tuned to, exactly like a radio antenna. Although, there are many radio stations, the radio only tunes into one at a time. There are also many vibrations to the human being, but we also broadcast a single wavelength at a time. I point out that we broadcast and not receive because if we want to receive higher vibrations we have to learn to broadcast higher vibrations.

This is great news. It means that once we are broadcasting higher vibrations like love and gratitude, we can not receive the lower vibrations like hate, depression, jealousy, envy, and frustration.

We tune into a higher vibrations by tuning ourselves to broadcast it. This is also great news because it means what we broadcast is not dependent on what we receive. We don’t have to wait on anything or anyone to tune us into what we want to recieve.

Of course, it will be a challenge in the beginning to broadcast high vibrations when you are receiving low vibrations. You might even think higher vibrations are for someone else. You might think you are not worthy of receiving love and gratitude. You might not even know what love and gratitude really feel like.

Ever hear someone say, “we can’t have nice things?” They say it like it’s a joke. But, really it’s a powerful mental program they were taught early in life. It’s one of the many station on your radio. What you think, it what you become.

You must be present in your thoughts. Especially in the beginning. You have to make yourself think in higher vibrations. It is a skill and it takes practice. One way to think about “being present with your thoughts” is like this:

You know when someone is present with you because they paying attention to what you say, do, and how you react. They care about you enough to stop you when you say something or do something harmful. Even if it’s meant as a joke, they will say “don’t talk like that,” or “Don’t call yourself stupid.” And especially, “Don’t say I wish I was dead.” Although, they know it’s a figure of speech, they don’t want to hear you say it because even the idea of it hurts them.

We have to be the same way with our thoughts. By being present with our thoughts we pay attention to them and stop them when they become negative. Also, being present with our thoughts puts us in the present moment and puts all of our attention on NOW.

Remember: where your attention is, so is your energy. We want to put all of energy in the present moment. Just like an antenna can transmit farther by using more energy, so can we. The reach of our vibration depends on how much attention we give to our thoughts and what emotions our thoughts are creating.

Perfect Life Checklist

The Perfect Life Generator

What you might not know is that you can have everything you want, but you have been programmed since childhood to doubt yourself and the world around you. It is time to get specific. Goal-driven action is the answer to your dreams.

People often quote “ask and you shall receive?” But, when asked what they want they reply: more money, a better job, house, car, wife, husband, children. But, they don’t know specifics. How much money, exactly what job, how big is the kitchen counter and refrigerator in your dream house? Who do you want to be your wife or husband?  Who exactly do you want to be?

Being specific is a major key to receiving your desires. You can just ask for money. You have to ask for an amount. You certainly can’t have someone else ask for you and you an’t ask for someone else. The universe is vast and wealthy and it has everything you want, need, and desire. But, it can not decide for you.

Answer these questions below for yourself and imagine what your perfect life would really look like.

 1 – What is the greatest, most ideal version of you?

2 – How would you start your day if you had a perfect life? What time would you wake up? What type of bed would you have? Alarm clock? Curtains open or closed?

3 – Would you be married? Who to?

4 – If so, what type of wife/husband would you have?

5 – What would you eat for breakfast? Do you prepare it yourself?

6 – Where would you work? How many hours?

7 – Who would your co-workers be?

8 – Where would you spend your lunch break?

9 – Do you exercise during the day?

10 – Who would your boss or clients be?

11 – How much money would you make a year?

12 – How much money would be in your bank account?

13 – What would you do after work? Who are your friends? Do you have a place to meet? Is there a room or garage in your house where your friends visit?  Maybe a workshop outside?

14 – What hobbies would you have?

15 – How many children would you have?


Can you think of other questions that would better create your perfect day? If so, ask and answer them yourself.

Now, describe in detail your entire day from the time you wake-up to the time you go back to sleep.

Age of Ages: part 2

Age of Ages: Life’s Secret Menu

Thadd Presley

 

It was the fourth venue on John’s tour. He’d sold more than three hundred books, everyone of them signed, and shook nearly a thousand hands. He was getting into the swing of things, when he was stopped in his tracks by a man in a wheel chair.

The man held his hand up to John and waited for him to shake it, which of course John did. The way the man sat made the twist in his spine obvious and it brought reality rushing in on him.

Why did these things happen? Why are people crippled? Why do I get to think an achy back is any reason to whine and fall into depression?

The man in the wheelchair smiled as he held up John’s book. His thin arms shook with the weight of it. John’s breath shook in his chest and a sob escaped his lips.

Everyone noticed. The man in the wheelchair looked john directly in the eye and exhaled a slow breath, in an effort not to cry himself. John took the book, signed it quickly, and laid it in the man’s lap.

Then, he took a card from his back pocket and help it out to the man. “I’ve got to go on stage now. But, please call me tomorrow at noon. I want to speak with you.”

A woman standing near the man reached for the card. She took it and nodded her head. “He’s looking forward to it.”

“Yes, ma’am So am I.”

On stage John spoke to a crowd of nearly two hundred people, who had come to the Hyatt Regency to hear him talk about what he thought life was and what people are.

“By the time we are teenagers, most of us have been taught to believe in only what we can see. All the wonder, fantasy, miracles, and magick of the world, while encouraged in the early years, is quickly discouraged as we get old enough to act upon them. The moment it seems we might be in a place to make our belief in the invisible world a reality, we are told that it’s childish. If we insist with our interests in the invisible things and things actually begin to happen, we are shunned and told that only demons will give us the things we desire. To get happiness and become fulfilled, we must have sold our soul to the devil.

“The powers that control our culture and society want us to know what is out there. They tell us that we can have all of these amazing things that exist in the universe. But, they warn, it’s wrong to want them. So, we’re not being denied the gift’s of the universe. We’re not having our happiness taken away.

“Oh no.

“Eventually, we’ve become convinced that it’s an evil impulse and a selfish desire to want worldly treasures and beautiful things. We chose to forfeit our rights as the Prince or Princess of the Universe, as a living Child of God, and we’ve forgotten the amazing temple we are: a temple that houses the creator’s spirit and acts as the sanctified connection between us and the infinite treasures of timeless wealth and knowledge.

“But, it’s our creator’s will for us to live fulfilling lives and have abundance overflowing. More times than we realize, we are blind to the real treasures of life. We are on the receiving end of unlimited lifeline of happiness and pleasure, but we disconnect ourselves.

“Life has a secret menu that we are taught to ignore. We close our eyes to the reality of receiving gifts from the universe.

“We believe it’s demons and devils that grant our wishes, but what if the universe is a mechanism built for the sole purpose of fulfilling your desires. This is hard to believe because it seems as if the universe is actually working against our will.

“And perhaps it is. But, it doesn’t have to be that way.”

The audience did not stand when they clapped, but John liked that best because it meant they were thinking.
