"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.
