One of the common false narratives running through the media is that of inhumanity is power. Human traits like empathy and compassion are eschewed for a “I don’t care what you think or say”, winner takes all, dog eat dog kind of corporate mentality. I could sit here and write about how this is part of a wider transhumanist push by some people (placeholder link to The Powers that Don’t Be) to encourage us to be like them (i.e. sociopathic), but that’s not what this article is about. It’s about the underlying media narrative that being human limits us. Read More…
Rewind history ten years or so (to the early 2000’s) and the word “ascension” started becoming popular in the New Age community. We’re all going to ascend, they said. The date? December 21, 2012. Only it didn’t start as that because apparently that isn’t the true date the Mayan calendar, from which Ascension’s date was chosen, was based. That was sometime in late 2011.
Which also didn’t happen.
That aside, this event was supposed to happen on that date. As history will attest, it clearly didn’t. I don’t know about you, but I certainly didn’t notice groups of people suddenly vanish from society and ascend into the heavens.
Another concept that I am opposed to in the spiritual/new age arenas is the notion of “levels of development” (e.g being an “old soul” is better than being a “young soul”). It’s very unhealthy, ingrained in our society and getting rid of it will allow you to be happier and more productive in ways that are important to you. So I wrote a simple alternative that I’ll share with you in a moment.
Some people will get this right away while others may struggle. That’s normal. Don’t get frustrated and give up. Perservere. That’s a good lesson to learn for any awakening person.
Imagine you are a vast, eternal consciousness. For you there are no beginnings or endings, no start point or destination, there is only the journey, a continuous, glorious process of self-evolution and change within the moment. As part of that evolution, you desire to understand what you are. So you set about dissociating tiny fragments or “personalities” from yourself, imbuing them with your essence and letting them think and feel for a time that they are in anyway different from you.
Okay, so that last post was a little depressing. I really don’t like writing that sort of thing anymore, but it’s necessary and it forms a core tenet of this website; that to find truth you have to explore the fiction. The only way out is through. On to brighter things …
One of the things I’m passionate about is being a trailblazer. That’s as much about exploring new terrain, as it is about clearing a path behind me so others don’t have to.
There is a central conceit in modern spirituality that irks me and serves no real purpose. It’s this idea that if you don’t practice yoga, or you don’t meditate twice a day or adopt vegetarianism or any of a dozen other, personal rituals, you’re somehow not spiritual. Read More…
It conjures to mind a raft of horrible images, from oppression of native peoples to the metallic clinking of manacles. The very idea that you would be forced to obey another person in the modern age seems ludicrous, just stories from ancient times, right?
We live in a world of high tech slavery, where cameras track our every move and secret legislation gives legal authorisation for authorities to spy on us (and even detain us) without our permission. Where legal tender (money) is based entirely on indebtedness, money created with a few keystrokes that has no intrinsic value.
Everywhere we go, we are watched, tracked and controlled. By ourselves, our peers and society. Our individuality means nothing, only our value to the collective.
But why? Read More…
I’ll approach this from two angles, firstly talking about why I named it that, because that’s important to understanding what I’m trying to achieve and also explain what happened to you. Secondly, I’ll talk about how this site will differ from the numerous sites that already exist.
