#38 Conversation with the Conscious ‘Sage’ – Continued

Posted: September 30th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Life | No Comments »

Conversation with ‘sage’ continues, and he replied with a generous answer once again. Below is his expression, may you find it helpful. The bolded sentences are snippets from my e-mail, others his words:

-=-

You have great wisdom.

I guess we really don’t know where we’re heading, where we’re meant to be headed, and have to just stay in the presence of this boredom.

I should say here, as to my having wisdom, well, from my experience the next man or woman is nothing to sneeze at either.  You have as gladly the selfsame wisdom and light and all these things, else you could not at first have been capable of detecting it in someone else.

There is alot I can say about this thing boredom. Boredom is easy to occur, actually.  Those of high merit do not typically find themselves in this state, for so busy are they if not carrying out some task of sorts, then they are busy about the high ideals.  There are some techniques that you can use for this, and which should be tactics peculiar to you if you simply get stuck and feel you can’t get out of somewhat track of boredom.

Let’s take me, for example.  I am a walker, a born walker, which is a rudimentary fitting to me because I am innately a venturer, an explorer.  I yet have a pool of monetary resources to play out my native matrix and design.  I am working on many things, however.  These things come by trial and error, which doing I might add is exactly how God made the worlds — by trial and error, then resting and re-starting…

and so, I, too, manifest certain ideals and incarnate them through improvised means.  Say I have a place at which I wish to arrive: rather than ride or drive or sulk that I do not have the means to otherwise get there, I set to and do all manner of preparations to undertake the objective: walking evidences at once.  When you walk, certain forces are brought to bear, various things are witnessed while on the march; meanwhile, certain, say, switches of energies begin flipping off or on (I may go into what these energies are later).  Meanwhile, all manner of people are you coming across while walking, and the circumstances and events you behold are subject to awaken you in a Waking Dream.  And here is where the Heavenly Host begins to speak in its Golden Tongue Wisdom: some curious sets of circumstances begin to dovetail in very mysterious ways, which, if you are open to these, you can begin to read their meanings.  This is why is said that “God works in mysterious ways.”

Say for example you are walking along some promenade in the City, and you are chewing over some particular dilemma or just about anything, say, some problems that needs settling.  And just as you turn a corner, up above you sets a billboard with slogan or ad that curiously jives with exactitude the answer you are looking for.  If you are open to this, you realize that this is no folly or “coincidence,” but in fact is the case that you will have been set up to be right at that spot at that very time that you may see this and grasp the intent.  You all the while may have believed that your feeling to go somewhere prompted you to step outdoors and leave at the time you did, and that that was all about what you deteremined.  ‘But not quite.  We are so much an integral part of everything that nothing operates with our sole determinations alone.  We are all tuned and timed to  everything else.

So, actually, many do know where they are going in life.  Some are people set up for the mundane and are unknowing enough that they believe that life is no more than what it is as they have always known it to be.  And then there are those who seem to be wandering.  And these can be often the very kinds who have great problems trying to figure stuff out.  And maybe, just maybe they are a few of a kind again and apart, that has opened up and has more advanced things to learn, and so they are staged in a doldrum of some sort, wherein they can be aspired and made to learn questions that the usual person would not know to ask.  And this can be painful; can be that of a path of aloneness.

What one can say is this.  One primarily lives in ths world to master one’s lower nature and by that, to master oneself.  And this is a rough go indeed.  ‘Very rough.  The underlying unclarity to a lot of what we undergo is not solely due to anything we will have caused but in fact due to others’ follies and thereto not having confronted their lower natures, and thus have they rent holes and gaps in the Fabric of physical existence itself.  To wit: the current state of the world in so many respects.  And as regards your dilemmas presently, you are finding that you are working in a venue that has no soul…to use the vernacular appropriately here.

However, that reality notwithstanding, one’s mission is to go and find clever techniques to work with the weft and warp of these events, like a soldier pinned down under fire.  His mission is to survive and on having succeeded at many like harrowing situations, to prosper.  And the like of these are those who become the quick-thinking sergeants, the generals who can command whole campaigns.

The physical plane is but a boot camp; and the Dark Side, its drill instructor.  All that comes before and behind this is but theater.  What we see in this life is but an electric play of cause and effect, a cosmic motion picture thrown across a blank screen of space and time.  Some of us are born wealthy, some highly intelligent, some what one can call luck; and as I said before, some come by destitution.   As quickly, some can bestow the very picture of vitality, of health; while others, infirmity.  Ahh…some of us are born into lives of flare and adventure; others, ennui.  And this is the way it may play out, but this is no willy nilly thing.

I did say that all proceeds with exactitude.  Problem too often is, we are empirics down here, which is why so often Americans, for example, are so cynical — so “show me.”  They want proof, something palpable, tangible.  Yet, from where the core and seed and heart of any soul derives is at a place that has no origins in the empirical or what one might call the scientific method, or the familiar.  And if obstructed from having access to this, life becomes boring to them; all is a disaster.  In particular does this express among men — like you and me, for men are stubborn and often at a want to fire up their confidence.

In fact, a youngest of child knows more about the greater aspects of life than the adult but lacks the capacity to articulate this.  The gates of the heavens are not opened by the measure of acuity of brain that one posssesse but in fact by what and the way in which one feels of things.

What you and I and anyone here perceive and feel is what virtually everyone in some form or fashion feels or has at some time or another.  What you experience is the like of what every master, savior, and holyman has felt and in many ways still feels, too; for no matter on what station one could abide, there exists a plane above it.  You do rest for a relative while, but then you have to gear up again and rappel up the next overhang or cliff.  There is always the next step, which claim annoys many a philosopher, who in turn will argue and grouse ad infinitum in opposition to this assertion.  But of course, in the tradition of philosophy, the philosopher wants to win.   But life is not under arms and thus has no cause or need to win that losing should be held as something prohibitive of occurring.

I’m not sure why God/Gods have decided our lives this way.

You will be made sure without feeling you have been remanded to that state.  That you can be assured of.  But things take time, Seth.  Bear in mind, you have spent all of your life being the one who is known as Seth.  Now you are looking to something else again.

I just hope that there’s a better solution, and that we’ll finally know the secret to making life work.

This differs for different people and for different times and conditions.  Much of again comes to merging theory with practice, faith with experience, spiritual exercise with patience.  In short, as I have said, so much comes while on the march.  Of still more to the point — much comes down to finding kindred ones and coalescing view points and sharing talents and temperaments.  This is how corporations have commenced; how inventions have been invented and how great music bands have been formed; and above all, comes by what is simple as a handshake and countenancing sincerity in the eyes of another.

I think that you will agree that platitudes have to get out of the way!  So do Ipods and Blackberrys and the like.

Cause at the moment, life isn’t smooth-sailing for me. It may even be torturing with its ups and downs. If we could discover our real purposes, at least we could work at it and know that it’s all going to come together.

You answered this one, to wit: “at least we could work at it and know that it’s all going to come together.”  And so, I say this.  We all need someone to hang out with.  That is what misses today.  Electronics and the like have torn man and woman and child from their native moorings.  We must come to know ourselves.  Some will do this alone.  Some will not, is all…

But there’s no such beacon to guide our way.

That is already happening.  You need only continue what you do.  But I will say again, put your eyes on, your ears open and finally I do say this.  “Man often suffers thirst but fails to see the fountain at his feet.”

What have we to learn, really?

‘Ourselves first and foremost, and if this multiplied many times over, we can behold a whole other world indeed.  It has happened countless times before, it can ensue countless times again.

So what is your plan, my friend. How’d you face the future to come, what are your views on it?

This is something that has plagued even the greatest of men.  I know of no great personage who held a charm against that dilemma and specter.  It is just part of our growing up; each of us.  We often want our guides and mentors to be without clay feet.  But know that if an individual walks this earth, he or she is subject to bear clay as likely as carbon steel in his or her form, for how else might he or she minister to those who are in need of succor and guidance?

What kinds of expectations/truths do you hold to live through life in the best way?

This we both can share and expound on, and there is an answer.

#37 Ralph Waldo Emerson, on Different Persons

Posted: September 30th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Life | No Comments »

“In our Mechanics’ Fair, there must be not only bridges, ploughs, carpenters’ planes, and baking troughs, but also some few finer instruments — rain gauges, thermometers, and telescopes;

And in society, besides farmers, sailors, and weavers, there must be a few persons of purer fire kept specially as gauges and meters of character; Persons of a fine, detecting instinct, who note the smallest accumulation of wit and feeling in the bystander.

Perhaps too there might be room for the exciters and monitors; collectors of the heavenly spark, with power to convey the electricity to others.

Or, as the storm-tossed vessel at sea speaks the frigate or ‘line packet’ to learn its longitude, so it may not be without its advantage that we should now and then encounter rare and gifted men,

To compare the points of our spiritual compass, and verify our bearings from superior chronometers.”

— Ralph Waldo Emerson, in his essay titled , The Transcendentalist


#36 Awakened People

Posted: September 29th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Life | 2 Comments »

I don’t know how karma works. I don’t know what is planned for us. I don’t know how God wants our lives to conclude.

But I do know something lately:

There’s a small population of people out there who’ve been born into the world, their lives meant to be awakened.

This group of people may not mix in well with society. They see through too many things clearly, and may find a major part of the human construct lesser in value. What they appreciate, are of truth & genuineness. Instead of being led astray by the mind, they are strongly guided by their hearts.

When the masses move on with the ‘real world,’ they move on inspired from within.

I looked through “Yahoo Answers” last week – something I rarely do. Then I stumbled on someone who answered questions with great wisdom. Somehow my heart willed to know him, so I sent him an email requesting an acquaintance.

Sure enough, we instantly connect with each other as our hearts intuitively resonated.

The only reason why I’m writing this blog post today, is to share with you one of the personal emails he sent me just few hours ago. I was hoping to know more about the wisdom his mind carries, so I asked him:

“If you allow me, can I ask why you’ve learned what you’ve learned?”

To me he’s like a sage, for his generosity & wisdom as shown in his answer is extraordinary.

Below is his reply, may you find it helpful:

-=-

The why is the operative word here.  ‘Brings to mind this thing by Shakespeare that goes, “[W]herefore art thou…?” which is to ask, Why are you? 
 
And this is an extremely profound inquiry to be posed, for as regards to life, there is just so much as to the why.  I rather doubt that I or anyone could cover this save for any medium short of several volumes of copy; and even that would fall short of important meaning.  And one has to suppose why there are written so many books on the mantic arts and sciences and the esoteric side of life.

I will start with this and say, bear with me as regards what follows.  I will commence in a very broad way, almost risking conveying in a rambling manner.  And second, what I say here assumes you bear a certain belief and do peer into life with, say, a removed perception.  And well, you do ask, after all, where does mine derive.  And this is somewhat difficult to digress upon, but one has to begin some where in some way.
 
And so it is this.  Some select souls are born to this plane slated to undergo certain rituals and rigors unlike those undergone among the masses, and these are a different cut of men and women — or simply, souls.  Theirs this time, however, is an updating to the eddies and trends of life as it is on earth presently.  The Heaveny Councils are always updating to keep abreast of life as incarnated souls here see and endure things.  And so we down here are always being watched and abided and adhered to and listened to.  We are not alone.  And so, there are souls of merit who are, say, assigned here, just as one would find in the armed forces in which a trooper is sent to some location and theater of operations.  And these are souls that have attained certain merit in the many lifetimes spent in the varied universes, heavens, and worlds already.  Now — today — is a time that requires of more souls of this selfsame merit arriving here than have served in past eons; for a whole, say, constellation of universes are rocking out of balance, not unlike that of a washing machine convulsing, shaking, and groaning, alerting that the machine load has become unbalanced, in which the light and sound signal switches on.  In this wise, a whole new set of divine protocol and edicts adjudged by Robes and Councils, whose determinations are now to be brought to bear in all the planes that take in duality, which takes in life that involves creation, sustenance, and destruction or reformation (a trinity of sorts, akin to the construct as conveyed in eastern religions). 
 
Now, this Force — which is none other than Spirit — if you will, accelerated greatly at the turn of the millenium.  Now, bear in mind, what I say here has little to do with this thing “New Age” or psychism and all this sort of thing, but the New Agers are open in that they feel something is amiss in this life and world today.  Theirs has heralded the Change that has surely commenced, certainly as seen and felt since the 1960’s. And so in that respect the New Agers ‘are’ on to something.  I will say this, the New Age phenomena carries forth from out of a lesser plane of life.  But what I am addressing or trying to address with you direct proceeds from planes and realms far exceeding and above the psychic planes — well above.
 
Many people amid their respective life paths have insights to what is being said here, certainly some will make reference with respect to their doctrines and scriptural foundations, such as found in the Bible and in other references of the major religions of the world.  Where spirituality (not religion) and natural science and the mantic sciences converge is from where I speak here: it is the gleaning and deriving and enacting certain unequivocating principles of life itself; it is the taking in what Love is itself but not love as the masses know it, which notions and understanding are adulterated with so much dross.
 
I will pause here to say that the philosopher, that is, the quintessential philosopher, tends to a dismissal of anything ado with notions about ‘upper and lower’, and who simply holds that all exists laterally, in which there exists minds with differing proclivities, yes, but yet there is no one who can be said is above or below another.  And there is a measure of truth in this, but their assertions, too, wholly miss the finer realities.  There are differences. 
 
Now, there lives certain souls who are selected out to, as I say, undergo certain experiences and who are brought into that realm of life for which they can not take for granted life any longer, certainly not as do orthodoxy and the mass social consciousness hold.  And again, theirs is to apply underlying Truths in ways that will resonate with our time without causing a tearing and ripping in the Fabric, or say, the Ethers.  And of these souls of merit, life comes hard, for they are flung into perceptions and experiences that often cannot be explained that can readily be brought into the compass of the human mind, for few are there otherwise who would understand these souls of merit, for which mass-minds would otherwise instead only mock, ridicule or even harm those who bear this, say, conference of light and power.  And so these are souls of merit who keep to the quietude of life, only to pop up here and there, masquerading as bearing the same assumptions that the next guy would bear.  Though little could be farther from the truth.  Often they do not and cannot work in traditional or orthodox settings, and so they are indeed souls who are signatured to walk a wholly different path from others — and they may bear wealth, but they may not. 
 
There is nothing about them that might be typecasted but theirs in fact reflects life as we know it.  What can be said is, they surely are not constrained to the littany of doctrine and practice as carried by those bearded easterner’s as we so often observe is abided in popular culture.  Why Westerners still demur to the whole routines put up by some bearded easterner is curious, as if only through an easterner’s sense and vernaculars are there any veracity to be found in regard to the God Worlds.  Point is, the easterner’s view is good, may be even apt for that respective part of the world, but scarcely is this the only!  
 
And so those souls of great merit do bear lives that express that they might better fit in and not “upset the apple cot,” inasmuch as this is tenable; this, so as to go unnoticed and not be thought anyone outside the norm.  In truth, the greater expressions today come by that of the Occidental man or woman, not the Easterner, because so much unrest has been brought by the habit of the Occidental mindset, thus are the remediations to be brought to bear by them.  That is, the Western mind has caused untold unrest, and like that of a nuclear radiation, these signatures of energy have breached the very Fabric of Existence here in the lower worlds and spread like a contagion that has now to be mitigated.  Each person, each thing, each collective of whatever you might conceive, has a signature of energies, which carries causations.  The Western Man, say, has caused dreadful misalignments that can only be corrected by Him; thus has much to sent to his attentions to correct.   
 
And so, these are souls of merit — whether easterner or westerner — who live on a very steep angle of existence, what one might call an angle of ascension.  Their rates of causation are very fast — very — what one might call is the karma of these individuals, yet that falls short of defining their, say, contracts, for these beings do not as such bear karma any longer as one would think as much as they are fending off outside events as they arise, just as a shield would deflect a bullet.  They have mastered the usual and have moved on to the greater works of life — though they are in no way exempt from undergoing circumstance any more than anyone on earth; for that event is not allowed so long as one lives in the physical universe.  Having problems and bearing glitches comes with the territory, else the universe would respond in kind to bring any spikes and troughs into alignment again.  Ours is a universe of antagonism.  No one bears or can bear anyone’s baggage but the person him- or herself.  Are there exceptions?  Yes… 
 
Now, these souls will have already burned off the karmas, or causations, as would the common man or woman bear.  In short, these are the avatars, the, say, masters, saviors, saints, sages, holy ones, and the great teachers.  Often they may be staged in a holding pattern, as it were, wherein they are not serving of some purpose or mission presently.  But, again, there lives more of them now on Earth than has ever before manifested here.  The Fabric of existence as it is on earth or as it once existed and once told of, is indeed verily returning to that in which there has arisen a very thin line between the seen and heard and unseen and unheard.  What once was a norm — this property that speaks to manifestations from Above — is slowly returning to that same again as part of the re-balancing that I speak to.
 
I will stop here to say that when you ask how did mine come about, I do have to filter what this is as it carries through me; this, on the one hand — and on the other hand, how this all carries with respect to the world at large and how the collective consciounsess processes its experiences, say, as we see in media, the internet, the guy on the streets, the Institutes and so on.  And so this would take in a genesis, an autobiographic turn, an anthology of events on my part.  That I cannot do without having some base of questions from you first to to work with; otherwise, what I could say would risk speaking in a condescending manner to you or worst, may simply waste your time.  And there is no economy in that…
 
I will leave off here for now.
