First off I'm not an intellectual (thank God) or a writer per se, and this blog isn't really a blog: it's an evolving text I'm honing and expanding as the inspiration (or inclination) comes. It certainly isn't finished.
What I am is a no nonsense discerner of the human spiritual condition. In that regard I cannot gratify or sycophantically oblige anyone: my views are rather leftfield and somewhat controversial - I'm bound to offend. I can only hope against hope some of you don't stop up your ears, but are open to the Spirit of the letter. I'm here to resist the new age tsunami of hooey, and push back hard with something old yet very new; something right against the pride fueled delusions and ridiculous parapsychogenic conceits I see too much of today - to help show that humility is the way of authentic spirit. My intention, if I may be so bold, is to address the runaway spiritual immaturity - even madness - of our times and add some pure Spirit to the metaphysical morass of the past few millennia.
Like many people nowadays and throughout history (to greater or lesser degrees) I've realised I'm an immortal spirit in essence. This isn't mere speculation, nor is it fanciful thinking: it is explicit awareness arising from deep within the heart.
Human spirit is forever - no one ceases to exist. (It is where we exist that is the great matter at hand, for there are powerful, ancient occult forces at work, whose abiding intent is spiritual deception - all the way to our death and beyond...)
I've been into a variety of spirits and my own spirit most of my life. But in recent years I've come to a more astonishing realisation: there is another Spirit abroad in the world, one that is nothing of me - one Purer and Holier than we can currently comprehend.
The spirit of men and women pale in comparison. There is a pronounced spirit/Spirit distinction, the realisation of which carries enormous spiritual ramifications for any established new ager - if they are open (I use the term new age loosely, referring to all spiritists, mediums, metaphysicians, esoteric teachers and paradigm shifters).
Too many people are exalting themselves these days: thinkin they're somethin, thinkin they've got a handle on Spirituality, making careers out of being know-it-alls; thinkin Spirit is to do with the body/mind and emotions - not something wholly other than. Unlike them I'm not arrogant in presuming I have access to all knowledge. I've come to recognise two extensive sources of esoteric knowledge: one True and Infinite, the other false and finite - merely giving the illusion of infinity. I have a specific insight; an inner cognition I wish to communicate and do not weave elaborate fictions around it - the new age is doing quite enough of that.
I'm living and learning, and - more or less distrustful of contemporary disseminators of "spiritual" doctrines and systems for good reason - receiving much needed teaching and guidance from inspired scripture. My understanding has been opened to scripture: written by ones unsullied by our sort of advanced materialism, who laboured for a Greater Reality free of the technological distractions and electromagnetic interferences - basically the holistic bullshit of our modern age.
In short (and to be expounded upon) I'm no longer playing the new age game.
There is a lifelong aspect of awareness alienating me to the "real" world. Often feeling estranged from friends and acquaintances (being in the world but not of it) I came to know it a characteristic of Avadhuta consciousness, which made sense because most human systems and socialities appear absurd, they always have. This idiosyncrasy led me through the hindu roots new age and brahmic consciousness. Now I have to curtail the Infinite Absolutes and embrace some clear and present actualities. I'm an intuitive and a sensitive, for the most part I live in the heart. After over 30 years of new age musings, meditations and general messin' about, I proclaim:
Heart Consciousness is the only True Consciousness.
But I'm not talking "new age" terms here.
The way things are, are not the way things were meant to be - or can be. Actually, the way things are is a big joke, and the jokes on us. It would be hilarious if it wasn't so tragic, causing the heartbreak and brutal death of billions of people. New agers are woefully ignorant of the whys and wherefores of the enormity of historic and contemporary suffering. The gut wrenching evil and immensity of hurt - to both man and beast - has inevitably psychically affected us, we no longer sense the greater morphic field but are blinkered and extremely selective with our empathies. "Oh we shouldn't think about all that" - goes the new age chant - "it's too negative," as if it's of no consequence to them in their comfort zones. It's in our genes people. Acknowledging civilisations bedrock of suffering allows us to perceive where we really are, as opposed to where we like to think we are in make-believe. Humanity is a deeply wounded race collectively numbed out to the point of insensibility; for the most part it is living in it's dreambody: prone to fantastical flights of fancy, and highly susceptible to hosts of shiny esoteric phantasms spreading a great many insidious lies.
Spirit has been here throughout, serving and ministering against all odds, seeking anyone open to It's Grace.
So called intellectuals (the worldly wise) scoff at notions of spirit, they often mistake it for religion and generally think it's bullshit, bashing science around our heads as if it proves a point. Well science works for sure, we see that all around us; but science isn't without it's bullshit - it bullshits us about our true reality. By denying the existence of spirit it is bullshitting the entire world.
I can appreciate the awesome beauty of the scientific universe, but there's something far more profound about a human being than just physics.
So-called reality is a scam on our souls most people are in complete denial of. Mainstream science is blind to Spirit and blinding the majority of mankind along with it. For all the pragmatism and endeavour, science will never provide a complete answer to life, the universe and everything, for spirit cannot be discovered scientifically. It cannot be measured. It cannot be contained in a test tube or cultivated in a petrie dish. It isn't observable under a microscope. It will not be revealed via a large hadron collider. The only place spirit can be discovered is within and about us; by fusing the nuclei of our heart and mind with a Greater Heart/Mind, releasing an energy not of death and destruction, but of Life and Ultimate Creation.
Science is getting all it's own way in this world, but science is without Spirit and like a wafer cone without the ice cream: dry and completely tasteless. Yet the cream can be enjoyed without the support of a wafer. Get it?
Spirit exists with or without a body.
It's in no way wise to put our faith solely in science and psychology for ultimate progress; as a Spiritual Aspirant I can appreciate the pragmatism of science while realising Spirit works just as well in the world, and more: with our cooperation It can work Miracles.
Spirit is miraculous by nature.
For thousands of years the earth has been held under a deep esoteric darkness. Although it appears light here it is a sham light, the purpose of which is to constantly deceive. Right now the world is dominated by a false spirit shining a counterfeit light. From the perspective of True Spirit our world is as dark, dank and mixed up an arena as you can get; but HalleluYAH! Praise be:
There is an Omnipotent Totality of Eternal Spirit manifesting as Perfect Being.
Spirit does not conform to the ways of this world. It does not work through the sort of materialistic sciences we're almost entirely dependent upon. Neither does it manifest through the myriad of self-help gurus and pop psychologists everyone puts so much stock on these days. Nor does It express Itself through sex or body consciousness. It works via a wholly other transcosmic realm of activity.
Spirit carries no airs and graces, displaying no arrogance or snobbery. The prime directive is Love and Service, following cosmic rules and regulations to the letter. In action Spirit is forthright and to the point. Scripture records the activities of Spirit in the affairs of mankind, scribed by those moved by Spiritual Presence; harbouring zero desires for prestige or any fears of losing their life, money or livelihood by proclaiming profound truths most people didn't like - or understand.
Only those up their own ass (or someone else's ass) ignore the Paragon Insight of Inspired Scripture.
