Nothingness (revisited)

milkyway_infrared2

Nothingness or Everything-ness (oneness)? Human beings think if they can’t touch or feel something, hear or see something, or smell something – then it doesn’t exist. The box has nothing in it so it is empty, there is no box so there is ‘nothing’. When our bodies (vessels) expire we descend into nothingness? The flipside to this way of thinking (philosophy) would actually be the opposite of popular opinion, in fact. If one thinks about it long enough and examines the facts, one would realize that ‘nothingness’ could in in fact be ‘oneness’.

It’s not a new idea, I realize, except that it has been used before almost strictly in the context of religion, philosophy and that oxymoron of all oxymorons ‘religious philosophy’. I would pragmatically agree that in the context of universal beingship (no ism’s attached) nothingness would be the oneness with everything (everything-ness). In our sentient vessels we are detached from everything around us and cannot comprehend the existence of anything outside of our own thoughts without the interaction of our senses. Our animal senses are separated into individual sensations or functions thereby causing us to think that we are somehow ‘supposed to be’ separated from the fabric of our universe as individual beings, not thinking that the universe surrounds us all like water in a bathtub or like a ‘universe suit’ or energy soup. It touches our skin but we can’t ‘feel’ it, it is our unseen second skin yet we dismiss it as non-existent because our senses aren’t tuned to it’s frequencies and our minds can’t resolve the concept.

Our minds and senses are the only instruments we have to detect the universe but unless we train them to think outside the senses, we will remain completely blind to the obvious. A veritable brick wall standing directly in front of our faces. If evolution is kind to us and the rest of our fellow earth beings it will allow us to ultimately grow into our ‘universe suits’ and become extinct as meat puppets. Our senses can then combine into one energy sense and we will see everything as it is which, is everything all at once, as it really is all the time, forever and beyond.

On the subject of ‘death’. Death is a word feard by humans as the END of all things. The END of existence. We get hung up on endings and think that everything we know and love should go on forever when we really don’t ‘know’ what forever ‘is’ ? Is there possibly an eventual end to ‘forever’ like maybe, when we’re done with this universe? When we expire, our senses would really have no other place to go other than back to their origins which is ‘everything’. They (we) have no choice but to reconnect with the universe on an elemental energy level in the ‘end’?



Right Here, Right Now You Have Arrived

VisionOfRealityDEF

At this very moment, in your ever changing googolplex of past, present and future moments, and at the very time of this reading you have now officially arrived at the exact point (or instance) in the universe that you have worked so hard to get to.

You may not like it or you may choose to deny it but at this very moment you are exactly where you should be according to the course you set and the thoughts and actions you chose to implement a long time ago (or maybe just yesterday). It’s strictly a cause and effect paradigm that we all fall into without thinking or even noticing. As our speck of dust planet hurtles and spins through the cosmos toward the edge of our known universe, our physical place is ever changing but our thoughts and actions still determine where we are in our little motion picture type existence we call reality.

Our thoughts influence our actions and our actions determine where we go, who we meet, how we get there and what we do once we’ve arrived. Whether we like what we’ve done or not can only be realized after the fact and can be either astonishing or disturbing. If we like what we see when we get here we can congratulate ourselves on making the right moves and strive for a loftier goal. If we don’t like what we’ve done so far then it’s time to look inward, listen to our thoughts, analyze our actions, then formulate a plan of attack against the negative thoughts and energies that are, as we speak, steering us away from our ideal conscious destiny.

We all carry baggage from our days of youthful ignorance when, as fresh vessels, we innocently allowed the thoughts and actions of others to burn into our (sub)consciousness, our belief systems and opinions of ourselves that truly had no bearing on our own personal realities. Unless you were one of the rare children who were ‘their own person’ at a young age [and there actually are a few of them] then you were rife for influence and most likely took away from childhood more than a few opinions and beliefs ‘not of your own’. Do you think you’re fat? Stupid? Ugly? Unimportant? Not good at (whatever)? Not as good as (whoever)?

Well, if any of the aforementioned descriptions fit then the good news is (in the popular vernacular) “You ‘aint to blame for this crap [swill, garbagio, head junk etc]. Someone else [i.e. other that you] fed you this nonsense right along with your physical nourishment and the only mistake [as in mis-take, not a bad thing] you made was to let it into your head as fact. We all have more mind trash neatly tucked away and securely stored in our heads [minds] than any race of being needs to destroy itself and we all require some form of leverage in order to access it, shred it, burn it, purge it then ship it away to some soon-to-be-forgotten hell hole that can never be rediscovered by man nor beast. Mind you, this isn’t the scientific or academic spin on the issue, it’s the emotional version and since emotion is what stirs the human soul it is probably the more efficient way of eliciting a very personal call to action.

I can relate to you a personal account in which this power of emotion once stirred me to a call to action in order to save the quality of my life. It went a little something like this; One day I was working at a dead end job (as most jobs are) as a draftsman. I didn’t make much money and my expenses far outpaced my hourly pay. I also was a smoker; 2 packs a day minimum for twenty years. I had a smoker’s cough and not enough money to go out to dinner with my wife [on a weekend even after payday]. Well, as fate would have it, one day I was watching a TV news magazine show and a segment came on chronicling the lives of the tobacco moguls and their families. It described, in great detail, how the Morris and Reynolds tobacco families were rich beyond normal understanding and how their children’s grandchildren (and beyond) would never have to work a day in their lives with the fortunes their families had built for them. They owned villas throughout Europe, personal jets and a future guaranteed to be prosperous and carefree.

Well, about a week after watching the episode, as I was sitting at my desk smoking a cig, the realization suddenly hit me square in the gut. “This is unacceptable” I cursed to myself. “What the hell am I doing”?! All of their wealth, All of their quality of life, All of it was (is) built upon the graves and hospital beds and wasted futures of all the poor souls who had ever chosen to buy their poisonous products and all those who had wasted away their lives in ill health and poverty as they spent their last dollar on a pack of smokes to get them through the evening (of which I was one).

I became both incensed and self loathing as I finally realized (knew) what I had done to myself and what I was doing for them and to my family. I then looked at the side of the cigarette pack which proudly stated the tobacco family’s name right alongside the ‘Caution, this product can cause cancer’ warning and that was the final straw, the emotion I needed to change my life forever. I would NOT make the ultra rich richer and I would not be another statistic in a cancer ward. The end result; not a single cigarette since and it’s been over twenty years. The power of emotion combined with understanding (knowledge) triumphs over belief systems (addiction). I also forgave myself for previously ill-informed choices then moved on.

The point of the matter being, I chose to smoke, I chose to continue coughing up a lung and spending my family’s future on poison, I chose to be where I was and I was exactly where I chose to be BUT when the reality of the situation finally caught a ride on the coat tails of my emotions I was able to transform a certain defeat into a life changing victory. I call it the power of Knowing [when your being is infused with certain knowledge that your mind can’t ignore and thus must act upon].

All sorts of life changing victories are possible for anyone who is willing to tap into their own inner power and resolve, and combine their emotions with their knowledge wherein they will transform their lives as they choose.

This is power, this is happiness, and this is life as it’s supposed to be. This is how we choose to live. The only way.



Of Energy and Ghosts

ethereal-2.jpg

When we use the term ‘ghost’ we envision misty white, floating, astral projections of once living human beings. We ’see’ them with our eyes and sometimes ‘feel’ them with our nerve endings as cold spots in a room.

Question: If we had no human stereoscopic sight and no sense of hot and cold would ghosts exist in our consciousness, even as a concept?

Where do they fit into our reality as Energy beings? 

If we don’t ’see’ them are they there? If we don’t hear the bump in the night can we still insist that they are real? If we walk through a cold spot blindfolded, is it a ghost or an upwelling of cold air from some geological feature beneath us?

I have heard some second hand accounts of ghost stories recently that are very thought provoking, to say the least. These stories were told to me by people who had just spoken to the family of the deceased or actual observer with no intention of sensationalizing their account of the incident whatsoever. I’m not out to prove or disprove these accounts. I am really only interested in the ‘concept’ of ghosts as they pertain to universal energy and existence.

The first account involves the daughter of a terminally ill father who dies while his daughter is in the hospital giving birth. Her family does not want to tell her the bad news while she is in labor so they decide to wait until the daughter and new baby are resting comfortably from their strenuous ordeal. The Mother then works up the nerve and tells her daughter that she has some bad new for her; that her dad had just passed on earlier that morning while she was in labor. The daughter then smiles and tells her Mother that she, in fact, already knew and was ok with it. She said that her father was by the window outside the delivery room earlier and had told her that everything was going to go well with the delivery and that the baby and she would be fine. As he was terminally ill at that time she knew then that he had passed on and was using his last moments here to comfort her before he left. They both got to say goodbye and it made his passing much more bearable for all those he left behind.

Another account is that of a father who was very angry at his daughter for getting involved with a man whom he did not approve of and in fact, disliked intensely. The daughter was kicked out of the house for her decision to stay with this man and therefore had to bear the heavy load in her heart of her father’s disapproval. One day the daughter was in her apartment when she heard keys and looked on as the door opened suddenly. In through the door walked her father who was not only deceased but had unlocked the door with keys she didn’t know he had? The daughter, visibly shaken and shocked to see him, said ‘Dad, what are you doing here?! Her father then looked her in the eyes and said with an uncharacteristically kind smile “Everything is ok, honey”. He then walked out the door and vanished. It was as if he knew the weight of her heavy heart and needed to ease her pain before moving on?

These are the accounts of regular people with no ties to popular media and no reason to fabricate anything. Just a simple account of a simple incident in their lives in which their loved ones took the time to comfort them from beyond human existence.

In our world of energy, where we don’t have eyes, noses, ears or meaty brains we would postulate this kind of experience to be a transfer of energy through the molecular soup and would beg the question; is death just a transformation of energy from one form to another but all within the same construct, or in human terms, universe? If death is simply a quick switch to ’something else’ within the confines of our molecular bowl of soup then we are living with ‘dead’ people every day. The fact that we can’t understand what death is would make this a pretty scary experience for some? For others it is an opportunity or possibility to investigate the unknown.

How do we SEE ghosts? If a ghost isn’t there yet we see it, what are we using to ’see’? What sensory ability are we now able to employ to see things ‘that aren’t there’ that we weren’t able to use before? We know that our minds dictate ‘what‘ we ‘see‘ because all the nerve bundles lead to the meaty brain within which our ‘minds’ reside (in one form or another – but that’s another article).

We ‘See’ people in our dreams (eyes closed)

We ‘See’ people while in surgery and under anesthesia (eyes closed).

We ‘See’ people in our imaginations and day dreams (eyes open).

Could it be that there is a part of our consciousness that can never be Unconscious or unaware? A part of us that can never stop ‘seeing’?

If we can ’see’ with our eyes closed then we might be able to selectively ’see’ other energy forms if we need or want to badly enough? Perhaps the fathers in the previous accounts needed to briefly share the time space of their daughters, with whom they are universally connected, in order to bring some sort of equilibrium to both of their life force energies? Perhaps once the shell of humanity, temporarily housing our true energy ’selves’, has been shed we are then able to overcome our time/space constraints and move about with a new universal purpose, and as ‘beings’ of the universe or beings of ‘everything’. Could it be that our present animal senses and brainpower just aren’t enough yet to comprehend the universe as it is, like a fish explaining water or a fly explaining flight.

Could it be that our ghosts are simply fellow energy beings in another form, or possibly ringing at higher/lower vibration, moving through our same time space and what we ’see’ of them is their energy form signature the way they once appeared when they shared our present time/space?

This is a subject definitely worth exploring further, which I will certainly entertain at some future time.

Until that time Eustis…until that time



About the Singularity … I WAS THERE

Did it happen? How many times did it happen?

The Pope didn’t want Stephen Hawkings to investigate it.

Cosmology is based on it’s occurrence.

Arguably, the theoretical ‘Big Bang’ Singularity is the single most important event in the history of our Universe!

Wel, I’m here to tell ya that it did happen and I was there to document it.

[Don’t look at me funny or call me ‘strange’ because in one form or another we were all there].

Here it is in case you missed it ;

Click to play. Let the little hand with the pointing index finger be your guide for this never before witnessed event in the history of our Universe.

How about a Symbol for Free Thinking-Open Ended Philosophy !

Symbol I Painting by DEFryer Copyright

   There are symbols everywhere we look and each one illicits either fear, reverence, politics or power. We have crosses and crescents, hammers and sickles, fists and fishes and many more.

It’s time for a Symbol that will represent something different to everyone who posesses it or a symbol to mean nothing at all.

Symbols of Choice and Freedom, if you will.

Here are a few choices of random nameless symbols brought to life in paint and canvas which were created for this noble cause.

Pick the one that resonates within you and let it represent whatever you wish or nothing at all. They were all assigned numbers instead of names to keep their philosophical integrity intact. Enjoy!

Everything is Energy ; Energy is Everything !

  Energy flows eternally throughout our universe and is boundless beyond our imaginations as mere terrestrial beings.

As human beings we construct electromechanical devices (microchips and circuit boards) to regulate the flow of energy through electronic devices but still most refuse to believe that Universal energy exists. We physically contain energy in batteries and power plants by means of converting one form of energy into another more immediately useful form, yet still refuse to admit that the same energy that powers our technologies is flowing within all of us every moment of every day. Some refuse to believe because their religion considers Universal energy to be heresy or the whispers of the devil since energy has no form worthy of a deity? The pragmatic types see energy as a fantasy substance used by hippies to think about when they get high. They view it only as a power source for their laptops, cell phones and wide screen TV’s.

Our brains and hearts operate on electrical energy input as do our nervous systems and every other function of our body. It’s what makes our arms move and our eyes blink and our brains function. We use the term ‘take some time off to recharge your batteries’ yet we don’t connect the dots and realize that it is a true statement of fact as beings of this universe. Energy is everywhere, in everything and necessary to what we call ‘life’. When someone is ‘run down’ from expending too much energy they need to sit calmly without expending energy and reclaim the energy they lost before they can go on.

It’s just not cool or pragmatic for some human beings to envision our universe as a molecular soup with energy flowing throughout each of us, being exchanged by each of us then converted by each of us, as a means of locomotion through our universe. If our eye’s weren’t so primitive we might see things as they really are and we could then concentrate on our ‘energy selves’ instead of the primitive beings we see when using our primitive senses?

One day we may realize that our earth, our sun and the galaxy we live in as well as every other galaxy in our physical universe will someday be recycled by the same forces that created our primitive carbon selves in the first place. As energy beings we can and will live on forever in the formation of a new universe and in a new form of energy where our understanding will be limited only by the senses we develop to ‘see’ who we are and where we are.

Meditation is a great way to focus on our ‘energy beings’ as we have our eyes closed to shut off our primitive sense of sight and can therefore concentrate on ‘brain sight’ and the energy of our thoughts. When we can let go of the beast within we can ‘see’ our universe as it really is and with enough repetition and training we may be able to ‘see’ despite our primitive senses?

I have some great meditation music and guided meditations from Dragon Rising Publishing that I use nightly to regain some inner peace and control over stress and everyday life.

Try it out and enjoy your own journey through our world of energy.

Wilderness and the Human Soul

 Wilderness

    Most people raised in major metropolitan areas seem to have an ominous view and definition of wilderness as being a place of desolate, forbidding wasteland where cell phones won’t work, computers can’t find power or a wi-fi link and technology as a whole, along with the 21st century, appear to come to a screeching halt. They figure that if they dare to enter the wasteland, the only outcome imagineable is imminent peril and impending doom. On a planet where every continent and previously unknown island has been charted and mapped by an orbiting satellite and almost every forest and jungle has been explored, a lot of people just don’t feel comfortable anymore around nature and trees and animals and open vistas. They yearn for the solice of concrete underfoot and solid structures to run back and forth between during their busy urban days. They only feel safe and comfortable within the best urban cocoon their money can buy.

The wilderness has beasts and bugs and wild waters and lots of dirt and weather and danger. The beasts can sometimes be unbehaved and uncivilized towards human beings and the weather doesn’t wait for a weatherman’s forecast. Nothing is predictable nor subservient to our will, Mother Nature makes all the rules and your life depends on just how well you follow them while you are within her realm.

I, myself, have been in the wilderness more times than I have fingers and toes and can attest to the fact that it is the last place on earth that a human being can really feel like a being of the planet. The term ‘being‘ is significant because in the wilderness there is no distinction between human ‘being’ and animal ‘being’. Every bug is a being. Every fish is a being as well. All beings coexist in Mother nature’s realm as equals and the only master is the Mother herself. It’s a very humbling experience for a ‘master of the planet’ human being to enter the wilderness as a participant in the food chain and endure everything that nature can muster. It’s also the most strengthening endeavor that a human being can experience because he or she soon realizes that ‘this is how it all began’. This is what it’s like to be off-the-grid.

We were once in touch with nature and dependent on it’s bounty before we pretended to conquer it. A human being alone in nature will almost surely be humbled and grateful to have survived once they have endured and experienced the most level of playing fields. It is the ultimate back to cave man experience if you just open your mind and let your soul experience the freedom to be found in the boundless skies and endless horizons. Meditation in a wild place is so easy it’s almost involuntary as you become one with nature and submit to it’s awesome power and deafening silence.
