Why Culture Can Be Our Enemy and How To Find The Truth

What is real and what is not? Click for an example of illusion and wait for it to load in the top right hand corner.

Our culture produces a myriad of illusions which keep us from finding the truth.

I was once in a workshop with Terrence Mckenna, and he made this comment, ” Culture is your enemy.” The issue seems to be that culture is made up of a set of rules and regulations. We abide by these because we have learned that we can count on the effects of certain behaviors. For example we have laws with enforcement  and that makes life more certain and safer. But when we impose our ideas of how to live  and put a judgement on everything else that does not conform, that is where the trouble resides. People go along to get along, conform to norms so they will be accepted. If they get to far off of the reservation they will be ostracized or worse possibly even banished, and this is one of the greatest fears of all people-to be excluded. Yet at the same time it is the odd duck, the nut case, the geek or strange person who discovers the truth of a a new way which can help everyone. But how do we do this? How do we navigate to be our authentic self and not a threat to others? read more »

Better Decision Making From The Pluto Orbit

Just how curious am I? That is what makes life interesting-living life as a question.

If we just tune into the same sources of information, our universe will probably stay pretty much the same. We will think, act and feel much as we have always done. The trick is to consciously seek the new and novel. For example this last week I attended the International UFO Convention in Phoenix. My brother has always lived in tthis world and I said, “Ok, I’ll go with you.”

Your first thought might be “oh just a bunch of weird people on the fringe.”  But you could hardly be further from the truth. Instead you would have met a group of highly educated and curious people. Many who have had abduction experiences.  And as one abductee kidded, they are not interested in just “anybody.” Long gone is the idea of proving that aliens are real and amongst us. The data is everywhere. For example one of the most compelling speakers was Dr. Steven  Greer, a retired emergency room physician, who founded CSETI, the center for extraterrestrial intelligence.You will find this website filled with interesting and provocative information. A much richer and complex story is emerging about what alien contact has provided us scientifically already. Reliable sources seem to suggest that we have the knowledge to build free energy machines, but these technologies are not being revealed. Once you peruse this site and look at the data you may begin to ask, “Why are they here and what is their agenda?”

You might ask, if this is true then why has there not been disclosure? It seems that many reliable people have had first hand experience but events have conspired to keep the information secret. Yet now more than ever the planet needs the technology that has been with held. Of course there are skeptics and debunkers, but my point is that we should pay attention to information on the edge of mainstream and check it out for ourselves instead of simply being dissuaded by naysayers.

Crossing Into Other Realities

Posted in Discoveries, Health, Living Abroad on February 3rd, 2012 by Sandy – 2 Comments

I just spent a week in the sleepy village of Barra de Potosi on the west coast of Mexico. Up the road is the bustling tourist beach community of Zihuatenejo where the action resides.  Barra is more like a zen experience. I stayed with friends in a camp (as in cool) little b & b on an unpaved village lane. A Trip Advisor review had given it a poor rating because they said it had bugs and seemed run down. I reflected on how frequently people impose expectations into just about any situation without regard to where exactly they are. I was  happy we had hot water, clean sheets, and mosquito netting, which we did. Furthermore  the French Toast was remarkable.  But that is not what made this entire setting memorable. read more »

Are You In The Flow?

The more I read about politics and finance the more I see that the experts have no idea how everything will shake out. They  have cogent and persuasive logic and then conclusions which make so much sense. Yet, there most assuredly is the “X” factor, which is not in their equation  which alters the course of their reality.  This ” x” factor is just that. It is not known. So what do we do and how does this affect our decision making?

I have been writing about getting in touch with our intuition, paying attention to synchronicites, and trying to get into the flow. The idea of course is that we are part of a larger reality that is constantly trying to make contact with us through these means. I feel the name of the game is to look for and improve the contact on a daily basis.

So over the last few weeks I have had some examples. They are not big or for the most part even recognizable unless you are looking for them and then consciously see them for just that. Here they are. See if you can jot down the same for yourself. read more »

Into The White Hole

white hole

We have much more control over the nature of our lives than we might think if we employ the right decision making tactics in the beginning of major undertakings in life.

Part of being on a non-linear adventure is that you never know what will show up to influence you. I ran across this article called Viewpoint by Scott Adams of Dilbert fame. He says, ” You are what you learn. If all you know is how to be a gang member that’s what you will be.,  at least until you learn something else. If you go to law school you’ll see the world as competition. If you study engineering, you’ll see the world as a complicated machine that needs tweaking.  His point is that we can make decisions about where we want to apply our minds and like a key that unlocks a portal into that world. As you venture deeper into the world of your chosen experiences you will be enveloped in the nature of those worlds.

I don’t think that many of us think about it that way, but it does seem to be the reality.  So what’s the take away? read more »

Crossing The Membrane Between Realities

Posted in Discoveries, Health, Thinking Patterns on October 31st, 2011 by Sandy – Be the first to comment

As a friend of mine, Terence Mckenna, the well known ethnobotanist and psychedelic explorer, once said, ” The world is not just strange. It is stranger than strange.” I found myself at a dinner party last night on my current travels.  At the table the topic of John of God came up as one of the guests had had a family member who had gone to see him.  It was one of those made to order moments as years ago I had gone to Brazil with a group who had been invited to meet with John of God.

I had not thought about this encounter for quite some time. As you may or may not know the psychic surgeons do their work in the etheric field. The mind, however, needs to encounter something it cannot believe but must because it is confronted with a reality to which it has no reference. I vividly recalled standing in the line and  watching those in front of me have cataracts removed with exacto blades. A few had four inch hemostats pushed through a nostril into their brains, and they quietly passed out in to the hands of assistants who would take them to the recovery room. I wondered what was in store for me read more »

Following Your Intuition, The Subtle Energies

Posted in Discoveries, Inspirational Quotes on October 23rd, 2011 by Sandy – Be the first to comment

This headline is one of the current themes of my blog. Part of the idea is to simply look at what you are doing and as it happens realize that the impulse may have come from another dimension, an invisible partner as I like to refer to the process.  My Facebook skills need sharpening, but today when  I opened it I  found this posted.  It seemed timely.

I felt I should just pass it on.  Like wise regardless of how much bad news seems to pour out of the media, there are kernels of good news also. You would not suspect this if it were not pointed out.

If one looks at the “Occupy” movement with an objective eye you will see that at one end of the spectrum is the old paradigm of simply taking advantage of the system in place. What I mean by this is that if you are a young investment banker your job is to look for opportunity. If there is a legal loophole that creates this, you are doing your job to point this out to our superiors.  Does this mean that you are greedy. Not really. Does it mean that the loophole should be plugged. In all liklihood yes. And that is where we are. We have a crisis of consciousness in which people instinctively are recognizing that the system we have needs to be of greater service to the entire community and in so doing “all boats will rise.” If we do not then there is a collapse and all boats sink.  I see the criticism of some saying that the occupiers have no plan. I feel the energy of their action is like the seed pushing through the crack in a cement sidewalk. It is pushing towards the light. And perhaps this is what we are witnessing: people are pushing towards the light not knowing how it will play out, but feeling called to have a part.

Last night I watched the film “Abyss.” As you will recall this film was about a nuclear crisis, ultimately resolved by the intervention of people with conscience and friendly aliens suggesting that with the advent of nuclear power, war is no longer a viable option if the species wants to survive. I think if we pay attention we will see subtle messages coming in from all sources  propelling us towards an emerging brighter future.

Are you experiencing the same thing?

Is It Coincidence, Just A Nice Thing, Or Manifestation?

Random or Related?

Today more than ever, I think the idea is  to consciously pay attention to the subtle things.  I call this creative thinking in the largest sense. Get used to recognizing that an organizing force is behind these developments. It may be more you than you think at first glance.  For example  I have currently been  staying with my brother and his partner. She and I both have come down with a mild flu. In the process she asked me yesterday  if I would go by the health food store and pick up some bulk camomile. Having rrived I found that the bulk container was completely out.  Later that day I ran into a lady friend who said, ” I hear that your household is looking for some bulk camomile. I was at the health food store and found that the camomile had been misclassified and was in a different location. Here is a bag for you.”  At one level, you could say that this was  just somebody being nice, somebody learning that we were looking for something and then purposely taking on the challenge to find it.  This goes on all of the time in everybody’s lives. Most of the time if we are the recipients, we say, “Thank you,” and give it no more thought.

I think the message is this: read more »

Begin to Save Yourself

What happens when there is blood in the water?

It takes conscious decision making to think for yourself and to begin to see that things are not what they seem to be. The fish in this photo look to be docile enough. With a drop of blood in the water, they turn into ferocious killers. That is clear. The danger can be foreseen.

During world war one there was the hideous use of mustard gas. It could not be easily seen, and then before one knew it troops were gagging  to a hideous death.  It was so horrible that nations came together to ban it as a form of warfare.  Are we now seeing a more sophisticated form of the same? read more »

Am I In A State of Pertubation?

Moving towards pertubation

I have been writing about many factors which affect the way we think and act in our greater decision making arena.  In this regard  I have classified  many of the ideas as forms of creative thinking. My psychiatrist friend told me once that what her profession really does is seek to offer more useful points of view than her patients possess.

Einstein basically said that we cannot solve the great problems with the same degree of consciousness that we used to create them. The question, how do we acquire that consciousness? read more »
