"Running the Room"

Nobody can "run the room" who can not "run their own mind." Those who try, and fail, and try again, and fail again, may start talking - and of course, that's what actually happened. But then, many find that they can't "run their own mouth" if they can not "run their own mind," so eventually they invented writing.

One will quickly learn that Nobody can run their own writing who can not run their own mouth, and nobody can run their own mouth who can not run their own mind. Those who try, and fail, and try again, and fail again, usually stop writing altogether, and quite often never pick it up again. Too bad; should have stayed with that practice. It is one of the, if not THE most powerful technique for Waking Up - in the esoteric sense - ever invented, by anyone! It was, after all, the FIRST!

This is, in fact - once you see it - why certain people "back in the day" invented writing in the first place. It was not invented by one person, and then spread all around the globe. It was invented many, many times by many, many people all over the populated globe and at different times, in order to actualize the Prime Directive of Human Beings everywhere: To achieve full consciousness as soon as possible. Writing was invented to hasten their own evolution of consciousness - from thoughts, to speech, and now to writing - due to the genetically built-in problem of NOT BEING ABLE to run their own mind (it's quite literally a CHAOS up there, don't you know?) 

In the beginning, humans everywhere tried and tried and tried to run their own mind, but couldn't do it, so they quickly moved to TALKING out loud, first to themselves, and later to other people around them, because they discovered that in order to run their own mind, they must succeed at running their own mouth. Once that was achieved to some degree, they could move on to inventing writing, so as to memorialize their thoughts. It was not invented to spread the word to other people outside their small group of Friends, thinking and talking to each other as they were naturally made to do... that came much later, AFTER writing was already invented and perfected by those who could run their own mind and mouth, and "THE ROOM" - a strange term, perhaps - which includes the family, the household, the group, the village, the town, the city, the kingdom, the empire. Each example of "A Room" requires that someone RUN IT, or else the noisiest, and most distracted among them, will inevitably take over and cause the whole thing to fall apart... but that's another story (which will remind the alert of the chaos between the ears and behind the eyeballs!)

That brings us to the "present day," which began around three-to-five thousand years ago, and continues to this very day in fact. We are still writing, BIG TIME, and EVERYWHERE, but (sadly?) haven't moved on to next level... yes, there is a next level, but this is not the place or time to discuss that, except to suggest "mind to mind communication" is an, as yet, untapped human potential.

Asleep, or...Awake? Dead, or...Alive?

THOSE are the questions... 
but you've got to ASK 'EM! 

The main reason neither of those questions are EVER asked by the great majority of humans, is because, to them, it is SELF-EVIDENT: "Of course I am alive and awake!" But, is it? 

The only people who are even interested in those questions - and think about them, talk about them, experiment with then - are those who have already suspected they might NOT BE alive or awake, and have realized it is NOT self-evident at all! Just because one finds oneself in a well-lit room, computer screen turned on, sitting in a chair staring at moving words across the screen... that is NOT proof of life or being awake, certainly not in the sense conveyed by those terms to those who are already "in the know."

This is why one must first discover the need to ASK the questions - in spoken words if necessary, or at least thoughts, and, many times per day, if not each hour, and by all means counted - and then, once that's achieved (in a day or two or three...), to ramp it up, so that one only has to FEEL the questions (which is felt as a certain kind of "un-easiness"), and then later, once that's achieved (in a week or two or three...), ramp it up even more, so that one only has to SENSE that something is seriously "amiss" right now... like a bad smell, or a prickly itch, or a thing forgotten! and then instantly SNAP OUT OF IT!

This is called 
Waking Oneself Up, Coming To, Being Alive.
And as Martha would say, "That's a very good thing."

Teaching the "Good Stuff"

(Versus, Throwing out flares)

Nobody can teach The Good Stuff  to another person. All they can do - and only when they know HOW TO DO IT - is to throw out flares. These flares act as en-lighten-ers over the totally-in-darkness landscapes, which are the un-activated and un-populated areas of the upper ends of the nervous system between your ears. (If that sounds confusing, re-read it: imagine a plane overhead at night, and flares being thrown out over the plain far below where the people are.)

Consider: there is NOTHING that is not already known by EVERYONE - literally, nothing, and literally, everyone. That is, the entire history of mankind - all the way back to the Real (or is he Imaginary?) Adam, and forward to the Real (or are you Imaginary) [your-name-goes-here] - has been written on your genes, or, put another way, wired into your nervous system.


And this is a big However, because almost no one KNOWS what they know, because it's all virtually 100% forgotten by the age of about 14 or so, and for very specific, though quite unknown but KNOWABLE reasons. (Knowable, once the en-lighten-ing gets, let's say, ramped up.)

All People must be reminded of it first - usually by someone else, though sometimes, even a book will suffice - BEFORE they can realize what they already knew. When that "realizing" occurs - the Special Realizing - it's kind of like getting a joke that you realize AT THE TIME, you could never have gotten at any time before that. This "getting it" - the Special Getting It - reveals what the FLARE actually is, and how the FLARE actually works, and suddenly - like a bolt of lightning out of the blue - the machine is operating rightly, even if only for a few moments.
To suggest this is a Big Deal, 
is a Big Understatement!!

Now, one finds/discovers that one can begin to speak about this to some degree - but not until then. No sooner than that day should they even attempt speaking about it, lest they pollute/corrupt what they already know (that which was wired into their nervous systems by Life giving birth to you), with all the shit from Life's "teachers without a clue" (and most of Life's "teachers" are seriously without a clue!)

Anytime you come across a self-styled teacher of the "Good Stuff", run, don't walk in the other direction.

What you and everybody needs 
are Flare-Throwers, 
who know what they're doing, 
and will do it!

"Thinking on auto-pilot"

People are SO used to "thinking on auto-pilot" with nobody at all AT THE WHEEL, that their speaking, to others - friends, family, strangers - has become quite like their thinking has become... i.e., "speaking on auto-pilot." Hey, if you are very observant as usual - and very few are these days - then you have noticed this kind of "auto-pilot thinking" (daydreaming about whatever) many times every hour.

But what is very different about WRITING down and publishing your ideas about this kinda stuff, particularly - for those who actually attempt it, in a serious way - is that you can't do it "on auto-pilot" without it all just "going to shit" (the technical term for, sounding like it came from an 8-year-old trying to teach quantum mechanics to a team of post-grad researchers at MIT. Get it?)

WRITING is a unique skill, or talent, or call-it-what-you-will, that most people never actually experience, because they allow their innate resistance (which everyone has to some degree) to win the day, every day, and so they never get started, and thus never achieve the necessary momentum to maintain the EFFORT over time. This kind of EFFORT - which it most certainly is, and it is three-centered - is not only pleasurable, it is pleasurable in a part of the brain that is almost never ignited, which is only molecules (or neural connections) away from that part of the brain that can be considered to be, the "Escape Hatch" to Higher Possibilities of Thought, and Consciousness.

Only those who have gotten on that roller coaster, and are still riding, can speak about this from experience, and those who would argue against any part of it only prove - to themselves, if they are even mildly alert and awake - they don't know what they are talking about... most likely, "on auto-pilot" too.

So then, as usual, you kinda hafta be there.
You have to experience the machine working,
before you can discover how it works.

Dancing Elephants (in the room)

Why do people who are already "more awake than the average" (whatever that means, eh?) spend more time, mentally and emotionally, considering and pondering "whatever that means?" Eh?

That is, they quite likely spend very little time trying to fix the solar system, fix the planet, fix the country, fix the government, fix the political parties, fix the religions, fix the city they live in, fix nature that surrounds them, and the big one... trying to fix other people, including themselves? Eh?

This, of course, should be quite obvious, once the question is asked - and you just read it, so there IS some degree of mentation occurring whether you want it to or not... (just like when you read, "visualize an elephant wearing a pink tutu dancing across the stage on hind legs.")

There is a reason, and it is illuminating to those who first discover it without having to be told it. (Getting the joke is always more fun than having it explained.) The ordinary, average, routine, run-of-the-mill, standard-issue bunch roaming this planet - whether they made it beyond their senior year of MIT, or they just barely got into their freshman year of high school and then dropped out - believe, with conviction, that they personally can CHANGE things out there in the world. They believe this, because they think it is true because they have evidence of things changing out there. However, they are sadly mistaken. Yes, things change. But that change has much less to do with human activity, than forces which are much larger than they can even perceive.

The only change that a person should entertain (after getting healthy so as to forget about it), is regarding their amount and degree of Consciousness and Awareness they can maintain during any given 24 hour day. In this, one does have a certain amount of influence, based upon their own research into the matter, experimentation with methods, invention and discovery of new information, and appropriate application of all of that, without FORGETTING everything the next morning, and having to start back at the beginning... which inevitably means, not starting again at all.

For example, if a person finally discovers - after so many years - that chit-chatting about nonsense with other people who CLAIM to be in contact with some kind of "higher knowledge", leads one into greater and greater confusion, and then, makes a New Plan to "go it alone for awhile, if not a great while", and then pursues that plan diligently, very likely they will discover that WRITING - often, if not more often - reveals MUCH MORE about the subjects, topics, areas of interest that most entertain them regarding the Primary Motivation - increasing the amount and degree of Consciousness and Awareness they can maintain during any given 12-hour day. 

Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
(is said to derive from the very widely held, and not entirely erroneous, belief that 
pipe-smoking and meditation - considering and pondering - go together)

Here's some smoke from the pipe: it's much better to give BIRTH to your own understanding, than to PUKE-UP the presumed "understanding" of someone else. For the most part, all human speech and writing is nothing more than bits and pieces of other people's thoughts and ideas, but that usually leads NOWHERE (Oh, out in life, where the masses live, it is the NORM, so go for it! But, regarding the kinds of topics that interest those who are already "more awake than the average", not so much!). Leave your Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Tumblr, Instagram, Myspace, Yahoo and Google groups, and all the other kinds of mass-marketed mind-numbers you frequent, for ONE FULL MONTH at least, and use that time saved to Start and Maintain your OWN BLOG - Blogger and Wordpress are the best/easiest - and see what YOU CAN DO, without crutches on your eyes, ears, arms, hands, fingers, and higher ends of your amazing - but quite underutilized - Nervous System (where you think, talk, write.)


Oh yeah, and one more thing - FORGET about followers, and people falling all over themselves to read you, talk to you, mention you, and spread your word around the 'Net.

Just Do It 
(write your own Newly Birthed Understandings
for the effort, and pleasure of DOING IT.

The Big "E"

All throughout mankind's history, individuals have been forced to think for themselves, rather than relying upon the thoughts of others, but, as technology marches forward - particularly since the last 75 years, and accelerating exponentially for the last 25 years or so - people have had to think for themselves LESS, and now rely almost exclusively upon others - no matter who and what they are - for thoughts about humankind and the world at large.

Thirty years ago, and all the time before that, it was easier to get involved with Real Teachings than it is today, and most likely will be in the future with each passing year (once they are located, that is - which, of course, is NEVER very easy, given all the shams and scams that always must exist in the world).

Those who "got started" 30+ years ago, are - in a sense - the dying breed, in that they were introduced to "This Thing," and could quickly achieve a serious level of sincere interest and involvement, whereas some of the ideas, when encountered today, have become so watered-down, that they are almost unrecognizable, and the people who "might" have found them useful back then - before the watering-down - are way too skeptical about such "higher information" today, or they are just not interested at all to even begin "This Thing" - "The Work", "Awakening in one life time", "Evolution of consciousness", "Conscious evolution", and the big "E)nlightenment".

Case in point: I know many people who found "This Thing" 30+ years ago, who are still at it today, in a serious way - which usually means, secretly - while exploring, discovering, inventing, and creating, as well as actualizing their knowledge, more often, and better yet, each and every day. Perhaps curiously, or not, NONE OF THEM are "serious" tweeters, facebookers, instagrammers, myspacers, yahoogroupers, and all the other kinds of mass-marketed mind-numbers (as in, "they numb the mind") that so many people born in the last forty-five years or so live on today. It has become their "daily - hourly, minute-by-minute - bread" (pablum - bland, insipid, nutrition-free intellectual fare, mostly nonsense, gossip- and fear-mongering, and random bullshit, passing for "really cool info" on millions of silly topics, including "waking up", "becoming conscious", and "getting enlightened".)
Today, who can trust ANYTHING at all
to be of essential and enduring value?

Of course, NONE OF THAT STUFF, has anything whatsoever to do with the Meaningful Topics presented here and elsewhere by those who are, usually, "old enough" to know about them, and value them in the right way.

Consciousness is Everything

Consciousness has the ability to pick up where it left off last time.  
Can you remember where we left off last time (w/o going back to refresh)? 
Do you have any idea what is the common thread
of the last three months or three years or so?
One's interest and desire regarding the pursuit of Higher Consciousness - certainly higher than the ordinary one reading this blogpost - is not about becoming a "better" human, but an "actual" human - same as, but also quite different from all the "imaginary" humans walking around, who are filled up to their eyebrows with beliefs and theories about themselves and the world that are simply NOT correct, but were fed to them by others, from an early age, and still roaming free inside their brain exerting varying degrees of control upon their ordinary - some might even say, sorry, if not actually sad - life. As such, one's ordinary mind is like a horse ranch, with many hundreds of large and powerful, but still quite unbroken horses running loose, and there is no ranch hand to corral the errant beasties to keep them at least "orderly." For that, there must be a "Master in Charge."
An Actual Human - a Man in the genderless sense - sees the truth about himself and others, and about the world at large. An Actual Human has acquired abilities that were innate at birth, but remained dormant, almost from the time he began interacting with parents, siblings and peers, until the shift occurred when they "awoke".
One such ability is to always Think in a new way, not instantly accepting ordinary viewpoints deemed acceptable by the masses, but peering through them - like holes in a walled off area - to see new and quite original views that usually open up additional possibilities of Thinking in this new way. It is a skill - even as, for a long time, it is just an acquired taste, because it is uncomfortable at first to think, and then see that which has never been thought, nor seen before. It is very comforting for the masses to always go with the first thought that "pops up", and then to blurt it out: comforting, because it's the same one that "pops up" - and is blurted out - by almost everyone. These "popped-up blurt-outs" are never new and original, but just more of the same and ordinary that everyone else thinks.

Consciousness "lives by" one phrase: 
"This (thing, event, person, activity, whatever) 
is the Best One Yet."
And when I (consciousness) say BOY, I mean from my (consciousness) point of view, not "theirs" (only "they" can determine that). And what does BOY mean? Simply, that yet again, new and interesting expressions of the infinite comment - always and every time "descended down" into my head - from the higher thought-realm just a few feet above this planet, extending miles higher - and then intentionally, by me, "ascended up" into the room, person, place, experience, but on a higher level, capable of being re-cycled, re-circulated, re-invigorated, re-spiralized if not actually re-spiritized, with each additional thread/perspective. 
One can only judge these things from one's own perspective; as for what everyone else is doing and thinking and feeling and experiencing, it's all just theory and speculation. 
BOY oh boy.
Eventually, "certain people" have to stop waiting around for others to invent/discover/originate  the Insights they were seeking, and take responsibility for doing that - first, for themselves, and second, if others happen to be there, for others too. Once "certain people" get it, the mind expands, and the Insights Flow, from above, from below, and back outwardly - you can't stop it even if you wanted to. The infinite comment is a "push pull" dynamic. 
BOY. You betcha!

Post-Thanksgiving wake-up call

One of the big mysteries of consciousness is that we ordinarily attribute our internal states to the external world. If someone drives by yelling obscenities at us, we might feel angry, flip the middle finger, and hurl obscenities back at them - "Hey, they deserve it!" But all of this is illusion. Consciousness moves, and our states "fall into line" prior to what seems to be occurring  from our point of view (inside and outside)... not the other way around. 

We are already, from the moment we acquired language, and some time before that in fact, primed for responding to events instinctively, emotionally, and mentally, and it is only when there is a "Master in Control", that one even has the possibility to transform the flow of energy from "out there" (including the entire physical body you are renting these days) to the point of consciousness that becomes aware of something (first this, then that, then the other thing, ad infinitum, or your physical death, whichever comes first), into something higher and finer than was apparently "served up."

All of this should be so obvious, but it is not - just Look Around. Everyone takes everything personally, and negatively, and the typical response is to complain and criticize**. This has become automatic in the thinking center, and usually does not allow one to receive "the entire impression" before cutting off the flow. This is a primary reason why the "Master" never Matures, and adults remain children - intellectually- and emotionally-speaking.

There is an unseen, though suspected, connection between thoughts in our head - as well as, feelings and sensations - and the events occurring all around us. The world arrives first, and THEN a person shows up in the scene, reacting to appearances, because there is no "Master", who remains conscious before, during, and after. Such a "Master in Control" requires more and finer energies to remain in control,  because otherwise, one inevitably reverts to the **mean (in both senses of that word.)

This is Work, and it is never easy, but once learned, new and interesting methods and techniques can be discovered which add an element of Excitement, Enjoyment, and Entertainment to the Effort that is always going to be required. Always and Everywhere.

Tardisian Explorations

Many people have experience hanging around with other people who say they want something higher, beyond, outside of ordinary human experience, not so much because it is perceived as "better", but because it is perceived/conceived as "The New and Extra-ordinary." They are those who want to travel in unknown ways, and are called, "The Seekers of Truth."

What people don't understand about Tardisian Explorations, is that once the ship lifts off into the previously unknown and unknowable, any deviations from the Way There, will break the connection so completely that the ship instantly returns to the starting point - well, a moment before that, before anyone had even noticed, let alone entered the room/booth - as if it had never even appeared, let alone lift off, at all, and all who were once in the ship have already forgotten themselves so completely that they even forget about their now, and perhaps permanently, "lost opportunity" as well.

Once you get into the ship and it lifts off, you must always be on guard lest the "crash and burn" subroutine (well... "return to the starting gate") gets activated, and you return to a point JUST BEFORE TAKE-OFF, and all memory is instantly wiped. It is tantamount to, yet again, never even finding the ship, never entering the ship, never lifting off. It is tantamount to, yet again, marking time on Planet Graveyard (third rock from the Sun) you so wanted to escape before your time is up.

In case someone is confused about the metaphors hiding literal truths here, Look Around, Listen Up, maybe it will come to you, like it did for Amy Pond (and you know what happened to her!) Good Luck with that.

A little clue that will likely be missed, again!
When someone actually gets their chance to "power the tardis" (supply the energy to operate the control system and "run the booth" - you know, the room that's bigger on the inside), they either a) run it to places and times unknown by anyone, including themselves, or (much more likely, if not damn near always and then some), b)  they instantly break the connection, all the energy (the "seed") spills onto the ground of their gross and mundane world, as they break into a story about american flag protocols, or neighborhood holiday decorations, or some "great man" posing as a car manufacturer with a vision... yada, yada, yada.
(Heard it all before, must we hear it all again? Especially... HERE?)

It's not so easy to run the room, and not until one can actually do that, will they discover how it happened in the - for them, if and when it ever does - first place, such that they may, if lucky, be able to operate the Control System and monitor the MCP for the next journey into the internalmost spacetimes (the "tiniest example" of "getting small" known to any man). They should (as they say) "be so lucky!"

Why? Because, when one flubs the dub too many times, the booth does a permanent disappearing act before they ever even catch the "windsong" whispering its presence, like just another silent mosquito that GOT AWAY!

This is really just a case of an extreme lack of imagination, originality, and creativity. It was given to us at the instant of our sperm/egg marriage ceremony, then, as children it gets weaned out of us through living with family members, the neighborhood kids, and especially the educational system. By the time a person reaches his late teens, and early adulthood he's lost most of his capacity for higher development... and is usually never able to recover it again.

A Friend has reworded the "famous" acronym in this way:

An Internalized Worldview

For most people on planet Earth - you know, the third rock from the Sun - the physical world is Way Larger than the inside of their house, and Way Way Larger than the inside of their own head. After all, this is so obvious that to mention it here or anywhere, opens one to ridicule: "What are you talking about? Of course it is larger, just 'look around!'"

Of course it is larger...
UNTIL You look around!

Until one has actually LOOKED, and SEEN this for themselves, the external world - with its billions and trillions and zillions of bits, pieces, parts, constituents, details, features, characteristics, attributes, specifics, aspects (that about covers it), most of which is virtually UNKNOWN, and the rest is totally UNKNOWABLE - certainly appears larger in every possible way. Right? Even with all that you know about yourself: your name, address, job title, and thousands of details about yourself, your likes, dislikes, and many other things, all of that pales in comparison. Like the ratio between Zero and Infinity. So, again, which is larger, the external world, or your internal world? "What are you talking about? Of course the external world is larger, just 'look around!'" 

It is due to this obviousness, that most people alive today, and in every generation, are more interested in the external world, of things, people, places, movies, restaurants, clubs, and stuff to do - which includes everything about their physical body (the clothes they wear, the tattoos, make-up, health aids and dietary supplements they apply to it) - than the tiny in comparison "Internal World of the Mind."

"What lies behind you and what lies in front of you,
pales in comparison to what lies inside of you."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Here's another one:
Our minds are finite, and yet even in these circumstances of finitude 
we are surrounded by possibilities that are infinite, 
and the purpose of life is to grasp as much as we can 
out of that infinitude. 
Alfred North Whitehead 

Of course it is larger in there... JUST look around!

It is due to this obviousness, that only a few people, here and there in any generation, are more interested in the "Internal World of the Mind" than the external world of stuff. Virtually ALL their spare time - if not most of their non-spare time - is spent investigating, searching, exploring, experimenting, researching, considering, pondering the operations of the Control System, and the Master Control Program running the show behind the scene, always unnoticed, unsuspected, spinning out the scripts and plays and activities in which we all - from pre-birth to post-death - are unwilling, and certainly unknowing, participants.

And if you doubt even a word of any of this...
JUST look around!

What's on YOUR neurons today, eh?

I don't know about you... but,

That's what those wispy, almost impossible to notice, totally errant thoughts are called by some (in the archaic literary sense - traveling in search of adventure), flitting, fluttering, and tripping their own light-fantastic in there, particularly in the way they escape one's attention, until they become SO noisy, and SO obvious - like landing on your eyeballs, or crawling up your nostrils, or buzzing within an inch or so from your earholes... that THEN, you notice them, right?

But behold when you catch one of them. If you ever hold them up to further scrutiny for a few moments, you will likely discover they hold clues to the universe in there, out there, that most people never even imagine would be the case, until that fateful day when IT happens... you know, the Great Experience...
you know... meeting one of the
 Great Mosquitoes in the Mystery.

Fear and Loathe NOT the Great Mosquitoes, because they only come around, like "blistahs on your fingahs", when the AXE, that is your life, has for a long time been played like there really WAS no next time, no next day, no tomorrow. When you've put everything on the line - to meet the G.M. eye to eye, and nose to nose - you may actually be allowed to experience HIS Great Experience... meeting you.

Magic Lawnmower Ride

The Greatest Thrill Ride on Earth!
Better than El ToroMillennium ForceBizarro or Intimidator 305,
even more thrilling than you-name-it, etc., 
and it is - you guessed it, right? - 
Human Body Magic*
*Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. A.C.Clarke

The only reason the aforementioned "E-tickets"  are considered that (including all the other kinds, like parachuting out of airplanes, bungie jumping from high span bridges, scaling up the side of vertical mountain faces, you-name-it, etc.), is because the human body, and particularly the human mind, is capable of perceiving that experience, enjoying it immensely, and then living to report it, and even to repeat it, often.

Of course, none of this is possible for most living humans, EXCEPT when participating on these aforementioned thrill rides and experiences. That is, they can't do it for themselves - without the addition of "equipment" - because they don't have access to the Control System. The Control System is located in the brain, primarily, and other places in the body, secondarily, but to coordinate these places requires information and understanding outside ordinary human understanding. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of "methods/techniques/practices" for accessing the Control System, but generally they amount to little more than theories that can't even be tested, let alone actualized for oneself, without someone Holding Your Hand/Mind as the case may be.

So now, what to do, what to do? 
For one thing, start realizing consciously what is going on with you, in you, around you, anyway. For example, just walking to the store - a simple 15 minute excursion into unknown and uncharted territories in this part of the galaxy (in truth) - is like flying, sailing, surfing, skating, truckin', groovin', and any-other-thing you might like, can you but just DO IT. See that?

The mind is more than any Earth-based experience
and it is a shame that more people don't already know this, 
well enough to make use of this knowledge.

The Control System - "levers, switches, dials, wheels within wheels", or put another way, flesh, blood, glands, organs, veins, arteries, cells of all kinds - and the Master Control Program running through it, non-stop, from birth till death, or longer - which is hyper-threaded and neurally-interlinked "programming code, routines, and subroutines" - are beneath the ordinary, everyday, walking-around level of conscious observation possible for most humans - but not IMPOSSIBLE - and that is the secret that must first be dealt with, face-to-face, in order to successfully access, and then later master The Control System.

We will not - ever - bore you with details as to the How's, Why's and Wherefore's of achieving all this, besides simply offering the following: Change Your Mind. And by that phrase, heard so many times before and usually, if not always meaning, "change your opinion, change your theory, change your belief" or something like that, is here meant Change the OPERATIONS of your mind, such that someone is always Awake and In charge, a state that is so rare as to be virtually non-existent in most people for their entire, and quite short life.

If you don't feel yourself actually flying, about 6 feet above ground level, every time you simply arise and walk around - which you most certainly are unless you're a littler person - then change your mind. If you don't feel yourself surfing the planet even as you are sitting there in your seat, chained - as it were - to your computer screen, then change your mind. If you don't feel yourself traveling to unknown places and times, every time you venture out to the physical world, or into the non-physical world, then change your mind.  And finally (for this little bitty ditty here): If you don't feel yourself channeling the Master every time you open your mind, mouth, pen to compose yet another thought, then Change Your Mind!

Get your motor* running, 
head out on the highway*, 
looking for advention* and 
whatever comes on our way*
Born to be Mindful, 
Born to be Mindful.

At the Feet of the Master

The history of language use in human groups has always been about one person speaking, while the others listen, until that dynamic changes and another person speaks and the others listen. It is more than just obvious, or even pragmatic (can't have everyone speaking at once), and it is not just about teachers and their students.

In the beginning of language use in human groups - the unknown beginning, though perhaps it is knowable after all - everyone in the small group did not just stand up and suddenly start speaking out loud to the others, who were also shocked and surprised they were doing the same thing - "Ohhh, the cacophony!" Very likely, one person began to talk, and the others heard the sounds and saw the movements associated with some identified meaning, and after a short while these coordinated actions caught on. Soon, others in the group could mimic the actions and communicate similar, even new meanings to the rest of the group.

"The Teacher" taught the students, and the students learned well. 
"At the Feet of the Master" had a very simple beginning. 

The Master Speaks, and the students listen, and then one of them rises to Speak and the others listen. This whole process, that is certainly more than 10,000 years old, is a dynamic, ever shifting process, always and must be.

The real beauty of the process in human groups, is that people very quickly learned to LOVE speech because of the hearing, and what happened in those who listened well, and the effect that listening had on their nervous systems going forward. Though they didn't realize it at the time, the Dynamic Process under investigation here, was the primary contributor to human conscious evolution, that was eventually spoken about as a separate topic, primarily for those who, even today, shop for Bibles, Systems, Philosophies, Religions, Teachings, and especially those who AUTHORED them - if possible - and who may even claim a certain higher degree of expertise/understanding than all the others who would find them.

Listening is fine, and necessary, for a long time perhaps, but eventually one must "rise up", must Stand on their Own Two Feet, rather than continuing to sit down on their own rear haunches; in order to Speak the Truth that they are now, hopefully, capable of speaking.

Thus and therefore - so to speak - the Aim and Purpose of human life is to BE THE MASTER, not being satisfied to remain the ever recurring, never really learning, and likely never actually escaping student in the wings (wishing he'd grown a pair of his own). And certainly not being comforted by showing up late, sitting down on his haunches, leaving way too early, all the time hoping beyond hope that THIS TIME, he will be suitably entertained (code for "enlightened") so he can LEAVE, once and for all.

This is real meaning of going it alone.

The POWER in words

Everyone thinks/believes (and readily gives "lip service" to the notion that) there is "power in words", but nobody understands this correctly.

Yes, there is power, but it's definitely NOT in words... however, on the other hand, Yes, there is power in words, but it's definitely NOT well, or even efficiently used by those who get hit by it. The power is misused, misdirected, misunderstood, and consequently humanity today is less evolved in certain important aspects than a hundred or five hundred or one thousand years ago. Today, this POWER that is everywhere, has become channeled into the wrong things, rather than into the most important thing - Awakening.

Now, before reading the rest of this... do the 'right thing', and take a five minute, or five second break, look away, and compose your OWN rendition, your OWN bit, discussing this notion... ...waiting... ... alrighty then...

There is absolutely NO difference - power-wise - in these two words, "hate", and "love" (or any other arbitrarily selected pair, trio, quartet, or whatever), no matter how they are used internally or externally. "I HATE YOU FRED" (expressed with scornful eyes, and harshly raised voice), is essentially (the essence of the phrase) identical to "I LOVE YOU MARY" (expressed with admiring eyes, and softly whispered voice), and if you don't immediately understand that, then you don't understand anything at all, about language - about words - and how it has been implanted in you at an early age (even before you could speak them intelligently, or use them meaningfully) by those who came before you, who were similarly implanted by those... etc., etc., etc., and how the language - words, and their "attachments"... attached meanings - has "grown and developed" for as long as you have been tending that
"Garden of Delights"
That is your mind
Yes, there is POWER, but not in words...
in YOU.

Right here and now, I am looking scornfully at my cat there, lying on the table looking up at me, and I am thinking and saying out loud: "I HATE YOU FRED", and don't you just know it, NO REACTION, except his typical head-bobbing gaze of curiosity! So this time, smiling, I try: "I LOVE YOU MARY", and it's just the same ol' thing! The only way to force a reaction is by certain movements, and/or loud noises, but words alone produce absolutely NOTHING!
Let that be a lesson, human.
POWER is something else entirely, and when a person is not "identified" with the actions and events and people around them in Real Time, they will not allow their OWN POWER to drift aimlessly into irrelevancies, including being PISSED that someone said "I HATE YOU", or something else entirely when told "I LOVE YOU." How one reacts to the world simply "doing ITS thing" (driven by forces unknown to almost everyone, and thus never taken into proper account), is always a function of your own level of being and consciousness, and what will result therefrom are Conscious Actions appropriate to the situation.

POWER is something that can and must be extracted from that which masks it, including words, phrases, ideas, concepts, either spoken or written. Power is everywhere, affecting everything all the time, and it's FREE and AVAILABLE to those "with a mind" to extract, refine, and store it.

Strange but true

Most of the people I know, who claim to have some significant understanding of The Work - you know, that nebulous concept that many have only heard about somewhere, but never really grasped for themselves - have almost no understanding at all.

Some call that, "waking up" or "becoming enlightened" or "reaching nirvana" or "self realization", and let it go at that - as though the understanding of all those concepts is "self evident" - but those are just words, more words. Understanding the Concept means something that has escaped their attention somehow. "Strange but true."

For one thingThe Work has more to do with oneself, than about other people. Other people are necessary parts of the equation, of course, but one can not judge their own Work by their approval or disapproval, no matter WHO they "think they are". One simply Knows what they Know, and has the Being to discuss it with those who can and want to discuss it. Just because you can't discuss it with some people does not mean you must Fix Yourself. "Hold your Work!"

Those who have forgotten, or never knew (or cared) about The Work, do not know Who they are, What they are, Why they are here (or anywhere), or What they are doing. They arrive by accident - always and everywhere, even if they (think, or believe, or SAY they) had a plan to be on time - and then they instantly forget The Work, usually in that instant. One big giveaway, is that one can't address or even discuss the question - put to them in all seriousness - "Why are you here right now?" The best they can do, if they even attempt to respond out loud (not realizing it was rhetorical), is from their personal point of view... "I just wanted to be here to kill some time," or "I wanted to listen to the other people and their ideas," or "I wanted to teach the other people," or many other things like that. None of those "apparent" reasons have anything whatsoever to do with it. The first best answer is, "I don't know." The second best answer is, "I have absolutely no idea."And they would not feel uncomfortable in any way saying that.

Those who Know - in their Being - about The Work, know quite well how they arrived here in this moment (i.e., including why they are even reading this blog!) and what they are "doing" while there (or here), and can easily discuss it with others who want to discuss that. Those who Know, can no more FORGET about The Work  than they can FORGET about breathing, and eating, and excreting, and feeling the warm and delicious and life-giving rays of the Sun on their face, and loving the hell out of it. For them, The Work IS life, and life only gets better, and Better, and BETTER with each and every moment that goes by because they KNOW - in their Being - what is going on with themselves, personally, and with other people in the physical world, and even with those "IN The Work"...

That is, they can recognize each other instantly, 
and the bond is permanent.

Those who Know - in their Being - about The Work  also understand and agree with everything in Life. They have "risen above" the need to argue, criticize, condemn, complain, or try to FIX either themselves, or other people, ESPECIALLY their Friends in This Thing we are doing/living/experiencing... and yes, even talking about on a regular basis because we CAN, and understand the need to do it.

Success is Assured

Your success is assured, if you don't screw it up. 
Life has made everyone capable of achieving all that any human can attain in one lifetime, and you don't need bible training, koran training, talmud training, fourthway training, buddhist training, or any other kind of training to achieve that. You were born with all that is ever necessary, and you can thank your parents for that.

First, of course, you need to Believe it - without undue, and really unnecessary internal argument - and the proof you don't already have that necessary level of CERTAINTY in your belief, is when you continue to doubt that others may have this capacity, even if you think you may. You are not unique. You do not have more than others, they do not have less than you, although you may KNOW more than others, including the TRUTH of this assertion, as well as WHY it must be so.

Second, of course, you need to Realize that what was taught by the masters and given to their nearest and dearest, did NOT find its way into books, manuscripts, yahoo groups, and facebook pages... not by a very, very long shot! Their teachings were always oral, and specifically for those in the room at the time. As is always the case, there are some who leave early on - but not TOO early to understand point one for themselves - and some of them may even start something new elsewhere, and it is ALWAYS something new, and must be. Those who stayed around for years and years may have known something as well, but perhaps not. They may have only been allowed to stay around so that new people who came into the groups could feel "comfortable" in this strange, strange setting. Some stayed primarily to assist the master in his endeavors - paying the bills, upkeeping the meeting place, sending out the fliers, setting up and down the refreshments and chairs before and after - and they were fine with that. AND, it is usually just for THEM - the four or five or so, his "nearest and dearest" - that the master continued for all those, perhaps, many years. Were it not for THEM, he would have just shut the whole thing down.

Third, of course, you need to UNDERSTAND that you and your "issues" need to get worked out, as soon as humanly possible, so that you can begin the Exploration of Life, the World, and the rest of the universe that is possible for those who get started, so long as it's not too late. By the time a person reaches 30 or so, s/he should have started because 30 or more years is necessary to explore the outer reaches of these higher realms. And besides, it's simply MORE FUN having MORE TIME in which to discover all these new and wonderful things. The mundane level - of people and their trials and tribulations - is fully comprehensible so long as one starts rightly. But if one gets side-tracked by "pseudo teachings", "faulty religions", "phony new-age technologies", and never gets on with the EFFORT to understand themselves, and to really explore their own nervous systems - to Know who and what they Are - they might never have the opportunity to do so.

So, while Your Success 
is always assured... 
The future is never assured.

Metaphorizing the metaphor

If it can be agreed that today, humans consider that their religions and philosophies represent the highest (most meaningful) thoughts possible for present-day humans, then the cause and genesis of such institutions must be explored.

First, there was just casual talk between and among humans of their day, who were involved for most of their waking hours in the activity of just staying alive and well; when getting fed and fucked were the most important activities of the day.

Later, this talk morphed into ideas, which later morphed into rules, then laws, then religions and philosophies, and later psychologies.

All religions and philosophies are just laws, rules and ideas stemming from those earliest days in mankind's evolution from non-speaking hairy apes to talking naked apes.

Religions and philosophies are metaphors for literal, direct, in-your-face instructions given verbally by one man to another, as he taught him how to: fish, fight, fend for himself, and live independently, by feeding others, fighting for others, defending one's family, and living together.

The general population will always believe (note: believe, not Think), that the next step in this evolutionary progression, would be going back to the beginning, the source of all that teaching, and so we have libraries, and bookstores containing millions and millions of yesterday's records. But, in fact, it is not going back, "unmetaphorizing the metaphor" (as if to understand the original teachings), because that direction is devolution.

Evolution of consciousness 
is going forward, 
metaphorizing the metaphor.

Now, today, every today, a singular entity wakes up from his slumber, hungry, horny, and faced with the exact same predicament his earliest ancestors were faced with. It's not that a sleeping creature must return to the womb to awaken, it's that He must emerge from the Womb.

Future Man, is the Womb Man - 
post-cross, post-resurrection.

That Thing you do...

You people, that is.
With language, that is.

You start wars for no good reason, and then later end them.
You create families and tribes, and then later rape, kill, and exterminate them.
You build villages and cities, and then later pillage, plunder, and burn them down.

What a special breed humanity is, and all of this is done - you know this, everyone knows this - with Language. As soon as humanity was able to talk to themselves, they started concocting all manner of schemes, plans, strategies to first gain the upper hand on the natural world of plants, animals, and weather (that's right order of course), and second, others of their own clan, or group (that can be right order too, depending), and third, those NOT of their own clan, or group (that may not be right order at all, but it has become ingrained, if not hard-wired into our species.)

Out there in the rest of the natural, non-speaking world - sans language - there is perfect order and harmony, as there has always been even from the very beginning over 3.5 billion years ago. 

Out there in the rest of the human, speaking worldwith over 7,000 different languages - there is no seeming order, only extreme chaos, confusion, disruption, pain and suffering. All because of Language, and specifically because the species being USED by that language (yes, being used) has never learned the hows and whys and wherefores.
Enter the Ways.

If all humans RETAINED the "Original Teaching" they were given pre-birth (yes, pre-birth - at the time of their mystical sperm and egg hookup), all of the difficulties mentioned above, and countless others, might have NEVER gotten so out-of-whack with each and every succeeding generation. The Ways teach one thing, and teach it well - "REMEMBER YOURSELF" (but not just the "self", per se, the ALL and Everything)

One could imagine that humans are still not quite fully capable of retaining the "O.T.", but only in the "beginning stages", even today. That, coupled with their ever-increasing numbers - breeding like rabbits as they do - and the utter lack of skill, talent and understanding in most humans in general, their innate capability to RETAIN the "O.T." was virtually bred OUT OF succeeding generations. If that is indeed the case, perhaps humans have "DEvolved", rather than EVOLVED. Here it is, second decade of the 21st Century - and over Six to Ten Thousand Years or more in total - and neighbors are STILL killing their neighbors; cities, states and countries are STILL destroying other cities, states and countries, including - in too many cases - their own!

Language has a "mind of its own" - or certainly SEEMS to, the way it runs roughshod over everyone. People say and do the strangest things; more often than not, it is against their own self-interest, and without even realizing it, even AFTER being told about it by those they should really have been listening to all along. 
People are not the problem, per se. 
Rather, it is that people everywhere are being USED BY  language, 
and they lack the skill, talent and understanding to 
monitor and control themselves "just in time."

The Ways not only teach "remembering", they teach children how to THINK, and how to SPEAK, so as to maximize the usefulness of their higher intellectual circuits which were MADE to RETAIN the "Original Teaching." Oh, in case you didn't already know, the "O.T." only consists of about four little words. You heard them. You felt them. You sensed them at a deep, deep level. They literally ignited the highest, newest, freshest part of the neural circuitry where Language eventually resides in one. BUT, you and everyone else too, forgot them almost before you were born. 
The Ways teach one how to remember, 
how to retain, how to realize,

Body Consciousness - Conscious Bodies

Consciousness can't go very far, do very much, without a body. 
Bodies are required to live in dimensional realities. 
Therefore, we have bodies, here on Earth. 

Without consciousness, we are just pulsating, 
extremely sophisticated and organized protoplasm. 
With consciousness, we are "gods"... well...
perhaps as near to "gods" as our ancestors dreamt. 

Today, with "technology" - in the fullest sense of that term - we can, and should transcend the gods, one person at a time... because it can't/won't happen everywhere all at once. 

Today, "technology" includes all the thinking, feeling, and experience over millennia, that mankind can bring to bear on any question, any idea, any consideration that may spring to mind. And that includes all the "mystical/wisdom teachings" that have gone before, because it is clear the authors of many, if not most of the concepts one will find therein knew things modern men of their day, as well as our day, had absolutely NO CLUE whatsoever.
About our origins, 
our destinies, and 
"the work" in-between.

WE humans are semi-lifeless, semi-conscious organic lifeforms roaming this planet for food, sex, shelter and to some degree - since we are considered "higher mammals", like dogs, horses, elephants - social interaction, though without consciousness, that interaction amounts to little more than tolerating certain other's presence in one's midst, with regard to their suitability as food/fuel, and/or sexual partners, and/or additional places of shelter.

Consider: "god" did not create 
Organic Life on Earth; 
Laws did, Physics did.
"All Hail Physics!

However, once organic life "exists", anywhere including here, evolutionary forces take over and after trillions and trillions of cellular interactions and iterations, "consciousness" takes a foothold, and after a few tens of thousands of years, "god" is created! Yippee! 

Now, there is on planet Earth, a "first cause." Please realize (or argue, as is your wont) that "god" is merely a word that was created by MEN, as a conceptual contrivance to "explain" that which he does not and can not yet comprehend. It "calms" his internal confusion and suffering regarding "the unknown and unknowable." It is truly, if anything ever was, an Alien concept - through and through.

Later, when men evolved 
neurophysiologically capable of attracting 
consciousness to his neural shores, so to speak...
The Lighthouse was Ignited!

Get your motor* running, 
head out on the highway*
looking for advention* and 
whatever comes our way*
Born to be Mindful, 
Born to be Mindful.

*motor = higher ends of gray matter, 
*highway = neural pathways,
*advention = adventure/invention,
*our way = Mindfulness in all things.

"Impartial self-observation"

Many people have this notion - who knows where they got it from, certainly not from "working on themselves" - that they KNOW their "SELF", that they "know themselves", that they have "realized their self", that they are "self-realized", that they have "seen who and what they are", etc., etc. - but if you ask them to describe their findings, they clam up, they can't do it. They usually say they *won't* do it, or that it *can't* be done, that their "self" is beyond words (which is the big cloud of confusion they hide behind,) and then they point you to their "My Story," (and, how many such "my stories" have YOU read??)

Nothing is beyond words, where things human are concerned, and even where things spiritual are concerned, as the entire "spiritual" world is entirely language-based. Babies don't know a thing about the "spiritual world"; they simply don't know anything about anything - physical or otherwise - and must be told about everything... and therein lies "the beginning" of the unknown realms.

The joke, really, is this: Whenever somebody uses the word, "self" (as in, "I know MY self", or "I remember MY self", or "I observe MY self") they are telling a monstrous fib, that even they would realize could they but get out of the way of that "self-thing" they believe they have "access" to, but don't in actuality.

There is no self, to remember, to observe, to know. "Self" is just a word pointing to a unending process, that started at conception or earlier and is still ongoing (kind of like the "Big Banging" which also is), and NO PROCESS CAN BE SEEN, NO PROCESS CAN BE KNOWN, except from the outside, and there is no outside for ordinary consciousnesse confined (as it was, is, and likely will remain) to the same cell in which it first arose - in you - due to the "marriage of sperm and egg."

The very idea, "remember yourself", said with a straight face and with all seriousness is a dead giveaway that the person has absolutely NO CLUE WHATSOEVER what's going on. Same with people who use the capitalized word, "God" in a sentence, always meant to be taken quite seriously. They have both seen their days - and that was yesterday! Today, they're empty calories incapable of stimulating the nervous system to the degree necessary to cause the excitement The Ways point to, which is what has always been referred to as, "enlightenment, nirvana, awakening," and other strange sounding notions.

A workable definition of the reality behind the ordinary conception of "enlightenment, nirvana, awakening," is that it represents heightened neural excitement. It is excitement at such a level that there is no self-calming counterpart. It is excitement above the level of consciousness at which ordinary humanity is stuck like glue, and everything at and below that line then becomes the dampener (the Line itself is "support" - for those above it - and "resistance" - for those below it) which affects everyone embarking upon The Way. Everything below the line - while being crazy, confusing, scary, chaotic, dangerous, etc. - nevertheless, has an extreme self-calming effect upon one's Desire for the Higher. That calming effect is necessary for humanity - individuals in general, part of the status quo, in order to keep everyone "in their place in line" (in the abattoir queue) - but is absolutely NOT necessary for those of "our lineage", "our bloodline"... not by a long, Long, LONG SHOT!

Ask somebody who "claims" to be able to practice consistent "impartial self-observation" how to expand their consciousness above the general line referred to above, in order to access the excitement that would represent, and watch their cats grab their tongue as they go utterly silent, eyes rolling up, and around and around, stumbling, scrambling, staring into space looking for something, ANYTHING to say...
...Still Waiting...

Fixed Ideas

Any "system of thought" which you "hold dear" - having accumulated and probably read piles and piles of books, manuscripts, journals and other assorted written (and in today's Internet age, video and audio) materials by a variety of authors and their supporters and critics over many years and several decades - gets deposited into your cerebral cortex, which must by their very nature - being primarily "words of a language" - become fixed in you. If they were NOT fixed - but malleable, movable, changeable - it would not be a "system of thought" but merely fragments of something, wherein even the fragments could change without anyone even noticing. How could anybody "learn" anything if information manifested in your brains like that? Mathematics, Science, Religion, Philosophy (and so many other things of course) consist almost entirely of fixed ideas, and those who know them well enough can sometimes receive higher degrees at educational institutions.

Regarding the physical world, all ideas about "settled matters" MUST be fixed - at least for the time being - and so they become fixed IN YOU. That's right order. "Earth is round and spherical, NOT flat like a table", is a fixed idea and that's right order, or your next trip to your parents home might result in falling into the infinite abyss! "2 + 2 = 4" is a fixed idea, and that's very good, or your next paycheck may be totally ridiculous, and your bank accounts fall to negative amounts!

Regarding the intangible world, however, all ideas MUST be malleable, to be of any enduring value to you (that is, you who are attempting to find out what's going on, to awaken), but unfortunately they are not, and that does include religious ideas, spiritual ideas, philosophical ideas, psychological ideas. They are presented to you AS (so-called) "FACTS", and what are sometimes called, "verifiable" facts, but all concepts about the non-physical world (of that which can not be touched, like "nirvana", "self realization", "enlightenment", "thought", "consciousness") are non-verifiable, for the same reason you can NOT VERIFY that Cinderella's ball gown was IN FACT, a size 4, and off-white in color, and her hair was IN FACT, shoulder length and jet black in color. And, oh by the way, SHE was an enlightened Zen Master of the highest order! (See? Anyone can say Anything about Anything... but that in itself means nothing whatsoever.)
Go figure...

Oops, you can only DO THAT in matters regarding the physical world (of that which CAN BE touched). In the non-physical, language-based, thought-based, made-up by men, mental world, no figuring is even possible! You can not add, subject, multiply, divide, or determine the square and cubed roots of such ideas and concepts, in order to produce Real Understanding of Enduring Value. You can, however, through an extreme lack of attention and awareness, become more and more confused over time as a result of those ideas shifting around, changing shape and form and color and meaning in there, thereby becoming misplaced, misnamed, misused, and misremembered, which usually leads (okay, ALWAYS leads) to more confusion.
Go figure...

"Conscious Schools"

Many here have heard of such things, but few here have personal experience of such things, and only a few of the few have current experience of such things, but if a person can begin to understand precisely WHAT the term means, everything changes in an instant.

In fact, there are no such things as "Conscious Schools" EXCEPT in relation to those who do understand. For all the rest, they are just places to meet, talk, dig ditches, plow fields, make meals, socialize, gossip, and all the other things people do in life.

For those who do understand, they know what their own responsibility is, and they can move in the right direction anyway, so that simply being with their Friends - the real ones, not the fake ones - qualifies as a "conscious hangout", so long as each one always brings their "A-GAME": Awake, Conscious, Ready to Roll, and by all means, "sans personality", which is  another term that requires more understanding than life out there provides.

Those who do understand know that they don't "join", or "meetup", or "visit" a "Conscious School". Hardly! They know that the idea is pointing NOT to a place out there - in the foothills of some small mountain range in the East - BUT to a place between their ears, behind their eyes, where the Real Mountain Peak is, that place they have known about almost all their lives, and only recently perhaps had the words to express something about it to their Friends. They know it is There, at the Top, that they can PEEK above the ordinary level of consciousness prevalent in the rest of humanity at this time - so caught up in silliness, nonsense, arguments, disagreements, lies, deceits, wars and threats of wars - allowing the possibility of actually
"Getting Higher"

"Bubblegum and Ass-kicking"

"I've come here to chew bubblegum & kick ass...
and I'm all out of bubblegum!"

Now (assuming some here recognize that sentiment), kicking ass out there in the physical spaces is a very serious matter indeed, with a fairly wide range of possible outcomes (to cause pain, suffering, dismemberment, termination, to name just a few), but there is one more worth getting into right here, and right now.

In fact, putting the sentiment a little differently: "I've come here to chew the fat & blow your mind... and I'm all out of fat!" (To actively motivate people to do something.) Speaking in metaphors, similes, symbols, analogies and synecdoches, while they may be considered by some as "hard to follow along" (i.e., fat), they can also make for more "enjoyable reading" in others, so it is quite difficult to be accepted/heard/understood by both groups at once. Someone is always feeling left OUT of the conversation, and they soon quit participating. Others find it neurally stimulating and so eat it up with relish. The rest are unknown to me in any case.

There is a reason for this, including all the fatty confusion and ass kicking, and you already know what it is. So I could, if I wanted to, just end this right now, so as to let you all work out the details for yourselves - in a "think piece" of your own - thereby discovering the PUNCHLINE for yourself, thus getting the JOKE, and being able to BLOW YOUR OWN MIND!
You know you want to!

For those who stayed a little while longer, preferring to be TOLD something they can argue with now or later (yeah, that's fun too, though not very useful in the long run), being ABLE to blow your own mind is a skill/talent few on this planet can perform for themselves, let alone such that someone else's mind is blown too.

"But why would I even WANT TO?" ask some.
"Oh, I can do that anytime I want!" say others.

Those responses are suitable for another one of your "think pieces", assuming you actually do it. So, when a few, if any, actually do attempt to activate their own Higher Ends of the Nervous System, wherein conscious thought operates, purposefully, intentionally (like "blowing one's own mind!") - a place few have actually even visited (i.e., taken a Tour around the whole Territory to survey the Terrain) - they might compose some written reply to this particular "setup", just to convince themselves...
"I did it!"
Note: properly "blown", one is a little,
if not a lot more AWAKE than before!

Recycle Magic - and other "trade tricks"

All of your constituent elements, particles, and sub-particles, are completely recycled into the "next version" of you, everyone else, and every other life form living on this Planet - even while still alive. That is, each of us has been here before and will be here again, though the Form will be quite different. In any case, as some like to hear and say: "We Are Star Stuff", and so is everything else on this Planet. Star Stuff. 

We life forms are made of bits and pieces
of all the other life forms.

Bits and Pieces are continually falling away, and then "treated", or "prepared", for the next temporary user, which usually requires being broken down further, or used as is. In any case, this is simply the conservation of matter and energy at work.

What is not obvious, and will very likely be disagreed to by most readers here (creating a small memory of this reading, and the disagreements), is that not only the physical body is completely and totally recycled - from the top of the head to soles of the feed - but ALSO your "memories."

Do you not get that?

In fact, ALL of man's "memories" are mixed and merged, and even siphoned off and recycled during his life in a "mystical ceremony" known only to Life (the "Gang of 12"), who - when the humans engage in the process - smile, chuckle and even laugh uproariously about it... and it's not even "behind your back!"
They do it right out in the OPEN!

It is well-known in the Universe - even to humans - that "memories" are a potent source of re-usable energy - kind of like batteries - which is why people continually trot them out of their corrals every "once n' awhile" (from seconds, to hours, to days, etc.), to look at them, listen to them, fondle them, taste them, and walk them around, as if for the first time, even as they KNOW CLEARLY it is not. Why do they do this? Because they get an immediate and quite useful (as far it goes) "contact high." Humans have been created to recycle their own memories, little by little all through their lives, in the attempt to squeeze just a little more juice out of them, i.e., to keep them alive (mentally and emotionally), at least for a few more hours or days. (For some unfortunate folks, that's all they've GOT! Memories!)

Therefore, it should be obvious what Life is doing here...
...or, did that just go "zzzOOm" right over your head?

The "mystical ceremony", is actually built-into the human organism, with instructions, directives, to engage in the ceremony as often as they wish - and the more the better in fact. It could be thought of as "mental mastication", or "pre-digestion", or simply preparing the memories for their Next-Stage of Recycling, being too "gross and bulky" in their corporeal containers. As they ordinarily are created and recorded - in sleep for the most part - memories are not PURE, but highly impure, and full-to-overflowing with stuff growing in and around them, like weeds, or worse like Kudzu.

You see, these memories are not only recycled IN YOU, BY YOU, but they are recycled into other "memories", and even into other people... usually by talking and writing but not limited to that. AND here is the "mystical" part, they are recycled into all of humanity completely unbeknownst to them when it occurs, nor after the fact when they "recall" some memory. 

People ALWAYS believe their memories "belong to them", happened to them, primarily because they have a story that goes along with each one of those memories, telling them so. But, it is also very possible to have a memory "happen to one" that has no story at all, until it is MADE UP on the fly at the time of its arising, and then modified, enhanced, embellished each and every time it is "taken out for a walk." This is "The Becoming", the fastening of the memory, that literally attaches itself to the current memory map already there.

From Life's point of view, it doesn't matter who "owns" any memory, only that everyone has lots and Lots and LOTS of them, that they call their OWN, and that they trot them out often and everywhere to everyone, so as to prepare them and humanity, "The Human Species", for the REAL "Mystical Ceremony" - down the road - for purposes known only to Life (the "Gang of 12")...

Well... and to YOU of course... once "you get it!"

We want tuna that tastes good."
(Good tasting tuna, has no memories of being Tuna.
It is clean and pure BEING, sans "tuna")
