Peace In?

How difficult can it really be to live peacefully, peaceably amongst each other? What is it that causes so much suffering in the human realm? Our attachments to the thoughts and things we do not have and even the people we “love”, when ironically love is actually non-attachment in the awareness that everything is “one” and we are all connected. We can never truly possess anything. To be human is to suffer according to the wise revelations of Gautam Buddha but does this mean that we are all doomed to suffer as individuals or as a species in an endless cycle of birth and rebirth? No. A very simple and clear message has been written, spoken and practiced by many accomplished and great humans throughout the span of human existence. It is not a battle between good and evil. The battle is between a man and his ego. We do not need a great messiah to tell us that our attachment to things causes suffering. We know this intellectually. But in order for us to overcome this reality as a species and as individuals we must practice. The art of balancing the ego must be an experiential part of our lives in thought, speech, actions and in all concentrations. This practice and wisdom that still exists is Asian cultures and other indigenous groups around the globe has been methodically undermined and in most cases eliminated by those who are the most afraid to let go.

The ancient wise teachers of the past used color, sound, light, parables and some really good drugs to express in terms humans can more easily understand, the multi- dimensional realities and complex physics of creation. The Tibetans for example, have maintained a rich and colorful historic record of this ancient wisdom and knowledge expressed in the form of mandalas, thankas, scriptures and statues. The Tibetans successfully established a balanced, natural way of living in peace and in good health as a community. Buddhism and earlier versions of the life practices were not religious in the sense that all power and control over the self surrendered or attributed to an outside force. They hold the secrets of free energy technologies from a purer time when humans were more in tune with the workings of nature and the secrets to self-empowerment through compassion and contentment, a huge threat to anyone whose purpose is to dominate and rule over others. This is why their people have been persecuted, tortured and murdered and their rich cultural heritage, if not twisted and demonized, almost completely erased.

The way to deceive is though reversion and disguise, secrets and lies. The greatest deception of humanity has been seeded and nurtured consciously through organized bloodlines and soul families that have grown into an entity of what we would call “evil”. It is important to keep in mind that good and evil are relative but for context’s sake we humans describe the intentional infliction of pain and suffering on another as evil. We have read bits and pieces of the revelations, the truths revealed in the ancient scriptures that vaguely outline the cyclic polarizing of cosmic and microcosmic consciousness, eternal fractals of the image of the creator. Through astronomy and mathematics the secrets of the universe unfold but these truths have been obscured and/or erased by whom? By those who want power. What we have been left with are so many cryptic writings and metaphors that the average person can be easily confused and frustrated. The mixed messages and confusion in the language of politics and religion is often intentional. If we understand that the underlying cause of this chaos originates with the deceptions of those who wish to have power over others, we can begin to lift a fog that has blinded human beings for so long and entrapped our souls in this unnatural condition. Any belief system that places one power above all is unstable because it directly contradicts the nature of the universe. The universe finds equilibrium in everything. Every where we look we can see the golden mean from sea shells to galaxies. And everywhere there is imbalance there is a man with a plan, a god with a rod from the pyramids to the dollar bill. The symbolism is everywhere. Those who create fear and chaos will gloat and revel in their symbolisms and secrets. They know that their victims have become so subservient and brainwashed that nothing can be done to stop them. So they weave a web of lies through symbols, rituals and belief systems that are so tightly entwined that no one can tell truth from lies. But we can always tell “good” from “evil”.

The “us” against “them” mind game tricks people into believing there are two sides, the goodies and the baddies. My side is always the good side of course. As long as people are taking sides they fail to see that the true villain is the ring master. As parents we use this trick to get our children to do what we want them to. Offer a child a choice of broccoli or carrots. You have just given them the illusion of power. They choose the carrots over the broccoli but you have just gotten them to eat a vegetable. Either way you get what you want. This is a harmless version of manipulation but an example of how others manipulate to their own benefit. On a grand scale we little children have been manipulated with every type of distraction from football teams to political parties. It’s the elephants against the asses, when we all know that they are all asses.

If any given religion is truly an organization established to provide comfort and bring people together in the name of peace, there would be no denominations, churches, no wars in the name of god, no hierarchy, no priests and no rituals and no need for funding. All that would be required would be that a human being come forward to ask for help and that a group of human beings helped with compassionate words and actions. Jesus and Buddha did not promote their religious backgrounds. Buddha was not “a Hindu” and Jesus was not an orthodox “Jew”. In fact Jesus was a Gnostic. The Gnostics believed that the Father (masculine) was the Spirit and the Mother (feminine) was the soul. Sophia was the awareness of being and the trinity was the Holy union of the soul spirit and Holy Ghost. In this there is heaven on earth. Earth is a hell created by those who have lost their way and continue to turn away from the light at death. This is not superstition nor is it religion. This is the secret knowledge that is the Holy Grail; the Arch of the Covenant; the physics of the universe.

Anything that requires giving away your power is a deception and a lie. Any person who claims to have power over all things is a liar and a fraud. We all have free will. There is no god that possesses power over you accept “you” the god. In the Spirit there is no sex, no craving, no jealousy, no hunger, no fear and no hate. Be one with the Spirit and your soul will be free.

Would Jesus Eat That Much?

Americans are the fattest people, generally speaking, in the world. Why? It is not the kinds of food we eat. Americans eat everything that every other culture eats. It is the amount and the fact that our society is centered on automation and convenience. We get very little exercise in our culture. Florida schools only require 1/2 of a credit in Physical Education to graduate from High School. Children are not required in some schools to have Physical Education or even recess. In addition to this legislation is being passed that no Degree is necessary to teach physical education. Maybe that is not a huge deal as long as children are encouraged to get out and move.

What we have forgotten or fail to see is that balance is ALWAYS the key. If we are spending most of our day at a desk and eating large quantities of food we will accumulate large amounts of fat on our bodies unless we are like some freak of nature with an incredibly fast metabolism. We will develop diseases and physical impairments. This is common sense. Naturally, moving all day getting moderate amounts of sun, bending stretching and walking burns calories, builds muscle tone and reduces stress. This is a balanced way of living. Moving very little and eating large amounts of food is taking it to the extreme in the American tradition and as we all know, extremes are never good. It’s just another example of how, worldwide, commercial gain is more important than common sense behavior and good traditions.

When you think about it we are completely at the mercy of the "man" who controls the food, right? Nobody grows their own food anymore because corporations and governments have all the land and all the killer wee. . .seeds. So we depend on producers, distributors and grocery stores to supply us with our daily bread, milk, beer, twinkies and artificial flavorings. It's a racket just like everything else. The fact is that we could survive on very little and not feel deprived. Tasting, touching and smelling food is 99% of what we love about eating. Not very many people say, “I love the way my fat belly feels while I am trying to digest 9 ounces of cow”. How much do we really need to eat to stay healthy and happy?

The San People of Africa use Hoodia to ward off hunger. Hoodia, the appetite suppressive natural herb is now the big craze thanks to Oprah, but it has been used in Africa for thousands of years. San refuse to till the soil as it is according to their religious beliefs, contrary to the world order that is established by god they rely on hunting and gathering which provides very little food. Their diet mainly consists of small animals, nuts and berries. And have you seen them? They are tall, dark, toned and healthy. They dance, make love, eat berries and build stuff with their own hands. This is my dream life. These are happy people, or were happy until their government began to relocate them to clear land for tourism and diamond mining. What’s new? The point is that if these people can live on very little to nothing and be as healthy as they are, the question needs to be asked, what IS the necessary amount of nutrients humans needs to survive? Taking it a step further, do even need to eat at all?The ancient Vedic traditions tell us humans DE-volved from far more spiritual creatures due to a lack of SELF control. Eventually we would find ourselves consuming other life forms to survive. Gross. We’re like giant parasites consuming everything in sight. What if we could receive all of the nutrients and vitamins we need from the sun and the air and the water? Does that sound crazy? Well, Breatharians say "NO!" Humans can actually absorb all of the nutrients and energy we need from the sun and the air. “Tastes great, less filling” I personally like the idea of living off of air and light. There are so many perks. Everybody's thin so we can all be supermodels; we no longer have to kill things (so the Christian god is happy. This is sarcasm); we can save money, time and have much fewer visits to the dentist. But most importantly we would not have to rely on anyone for our existence. Research in the area is not even considered by legitimate scientists. But in 2006 a 14 year old boy in India challenged mainstream science when he was discovered meditating in the hollow of a Pipin Tree. He remained in lotus position for ten months in and out of deep meditation without eating or passing. The story of Rom Bomjon is fascinating and mysterious. His presence attracted pilgrims from around the world to see the boy to which many were referring as the reincarnation of Gautam Buddha and/or Jesus (some people believe Jesus was the reincarnation of Buddha). The hilarious thing about the whole to do is that people are actually criticizing the boy, saying that it is a publicity stunt and there is no way he could go without eating or drinking for ten months. Namaste! Hello! It is a miracle alone that a teenager sat still for ten months! He was bitten twice by a snake from which he apparently, miraculously recovered on his own and with no complications. People who want attention do not disappear into the jungle as he eventually did with a parting message that he will return to society in six years (2012-Mayan end of an age, equivalent of Prince’s 1999-Party time!). In addition to this, on one of rare occasions that he made a statement, he told the monks that he was not a Buddha but an "austere sage", that he had not yet reached the level of awareness of a Buddha. He survived on light and air for ten months and perhaps longer now. I am NOT suggesting everyone stop eating and drinking. Food is great, food is good. BUT for example, sitting in meditation actually gives you energy and you consume very little therefore you need very little fuel to get by. An average person with no mediation practice, who is active and eats three meals a day can not just stop eating and remain healthy. According to the laws of balance each of us would have to tune into our SELVES and gradually change our habits until we find a way of life that best suits us as an individual. But we have to at least consider the possibility that we do not have to remain enslaved to our cravings and overindulgences, that we can reel it back in and re-evaluate what we have become.

Pyramids~Even A Caveman Can Do It

Now the pyramids are something you can really sink your brain into. Scientists have logical and rational explanations and answers to this great achievement. These colossal geometrically perfect structures were built by human beings or aliens or someone with the IQ of Stephen Hawking. Scientists say they achieved this by using trees to roll 70 to 300 tons stones of granite and limestone up a ramp. Apparently, there is no way that a 300 ton stone would crush a tree. Remember that trees in abundance would had to have been around 10,000 years earlier than when scientists say the pyramids were built. The workers would have to have been extremely muscular. But you have seen the paintings of the supposed workers. I could kick these guys’ asses. They’re scrawny little things. And they never look you in the eye. They’re always looking to the side. Are they telling me that these puny little bakers and candle stick makers built the pyramids. Come on. That’s like saying the guys in the Village People actually did construction, firefighting and a police work.

The pyramids are not just in Egypt, there are pyramids here in the United States, South America, Australia, England, Scotland, Italy, Mongolia and Tibet and many many more all were built around the same time according to scientists. HMMMM. Sometime around 3100 BC all of the stone age morons on the entire planet, walking around with their groovy crude tools made of a rock and a piece of wood, draggin their women around by the hair were sitting around the fire one night scratching their asses and said “Hey, I just thought of something. If we take the radius of a circle, then the circumference of this circle which is the same as the perimeter of the base it provides the complimentary squaring of a circle and circling of a square. The key to this relationship is knowledge of the value of Pi in designing the angle of a pyramid which would be equal to exactly 51 degrees, 51 minutes, and 14.3 seconds. We can take this information and use it to build a huge ass pyramid so that we can put our dead bodies in it while we go on to the after life. (Not that there is any evidence pyramids were tombs).Yeah man. Let’s do it! Oh yeah and let’s not show anyone else how we did it.”

Here we have one of the greatest architectural accomplishments of all time supposedly achieved by these egocentric Kings who recorded every freaking thing from how to cure a snake bite to, how to grow wheat, embalm the dead in gory detail, but absolutely no record of how they built the pyramids. Nothing. They did leave hieroglyphics carved into stone of really cool space ships and planes but that was just to fuck with our heads. Ra and Ka and Thoth. Come on. This is what happens when we let the egocentric male artists rule the country. We end up with Phallic shaped monuments and Arnold Schwarzenegger as governor. The problem with suggesting our ancestors were aliens that built these structures and genetically engineered humans pisses of the religious people. I mean come on, a higher intelligence artificially inseminates a woman to create a more advance race. . .wait a minute. Isn't that how the story of Jesus begins?
