A Quantum Tide Lifts All Boats

Zen Gardner, Contributor
Waking Times 

What strange times. We’re in a tight place right now, but it is what it is. The information field is so toxic with triggered egos, paid and unpaid trolls, agencies and AI, it’s nasty to have anything to do with. But we still have to use whatever means of communication we have as long as we can.

As far as understanding the “why”, as I currently see it, much of what we witness is simply Individuals working out their own stuff in the grand scheme of things. It’s essentially nothing to get too worked up about. No matter which end of the digital pitchfork we find ourselves in this mob mentality dominating the cybersphere. A very sad current state, but it will pass.

When the realization that everyone is simply working out their own path fully hits, the weapons will be dropped in dumbfounded amazement. However, much of what unreconciled souls say and do boils over onto others which is where push comes to shove, hence the information battle today and the source of the conflicts we witness. How we respond and what perspective and wavelength we adopt needs careful monitoring.

I do find it ironic though, how many of those supposedly fighting for truth still energetically feed the very thing they think they oppose. That’s a game played on humanity for eons and a great learning tool as well, if we can step back to see it for what it is. It’s an important hurdle to overcome, but that is happening as well as I see it.

That Rising Tide

It may not seem like it with all the insanity around us, but people are seriously waking up. Others are just plain shook up and having major life crises, as are most of us, but that’s good too. A massive shift is upon us that is increasing by the day and how we respond is up to us.

Whether people like it or not it’s happening. Our overall consciousness is rising despite it all, even if some have a reverse response. So many are increasingly aware, not just to the truth that we’re in an engineered society from within a plethora of world views, but a central point of debate and inquiry is regarding the very nature of reality. Just listen to the language of today and the topics being covered as opposed to just a few years ago when it began to kick in. It’s happening across every strata of society. True pioneering science and new ancient archeological and hidden historical facts continually coming to light tell the same story.

The wild thing is, the energetic tide is elevating universally, so those only observing from that plane can’t even see it as the deck lifts, unconsciously defaulting to a form of collective normalcy bias for perspective. How can they tell the sea rose without perspective? The more awake and aware can observe this phenomenon more objectively, being able to calibrate from a removed awareness, if that makes sense. It’s fabulous to realize.

It’s still a challenge to fully identify this phenomenon as old markers and points of reference vanish before us. It’s very wild indeed but we need to simply keep letting go. It’s similar to the fact that we’re careening through the universe but don’t even notice how everything is shifting all the time. We might notice how the planets in our solar system move and influence us, but that next level that all is changing its location as we circle the galactic core is also transpiring, which we’re generally unaware of.

And where is all that moving? And what energies are we experiencing? On it unfolds in continual change, the basic state of the universe. But that’s just the external. We have hardly any idea what else is going on in the unseen realms, just glimpses and occasional insights. And that world is becoming exponentially more known by the day. An amazing time to be here.

Massive Change Is Upon Us

The enigmatic nature of this ongoing shift on so many levels might be freaking some people out but this is what turns so many of us on. We can call it the lifting of the veil, the apocalypse or revelation, timeline and dimensional shifting, consciousness rising, or what I call it briefly sometimes to explain those feelings we get, it’s just plain slippage in relation to whatever frame of reference we had, sometimes moments ago. Something fantastic is happening.

I don’t know about a critical mass or hundredth monkey effect saving the planet, it is a factor and no doubt happening on some level. The idea that worlds are somehow splitting in some way resonates with me, but that may appear elusive and escapist to some. Consider it an inter dimensional metaphor if you like. Applying these and other ideas about our many levels of growing awareness can be challenging, but something profound is going on and nothing can be excluded from possibility. It’s no doubt a combination of amazing phenomena and we’re in the thick of it.

The base point in all this remains the same – it’s all about personal transformation, first and foremost. Nothing in the external really matters in that fundamental regard but we do of course learn from it. It is a reflection or mirror of the collective to some extent, but with so much on the lower levels being artificially engineered I don’t give that level much weight. It’s just another illusion and point of observation and needs to be kept in perspective. It’s nice to see things change externally, but I’m not holding my breath nor is it my business. I just do my part. Our full on personal transformation comes first, that’s my focus. Realms of discovery and awakening await all of us that dwarf all we’ve learned and realized so far that have vast consequences.

The contrast we’re experiencing in this dimension is similarly engineered by a much higher or all pervading natural creative power for our development and growth. Just as time helps us measure our experience so as to not have everything happen all at once where we wouldn’t experience the depth of this opportunity. Just as other seeming restrictions or natural and even artificial limitations, they all help us. I think it’s important to remember that.

Create, Don’t Berate

In my opinion, one of the biggest hurdles people are facing is having a negative orientation to all of this. And it’s very understandable. We’ve all seen the pitfalls of being overly dark and conspiratorial, fixating on the less savory elements of this playing field. It’s just one of the hurdles on our path, however daunting. Seeing past that into the bigger picture and the beauty of each sovereign soul at whatever stage of development they are at is so wonderfully encouraging and inspiring, in stark contrast to the more negative and judgmental mindset.

Seeing through the illusory matrix doesn’t make anyone better than another. In fact, the hallmark of wisdom is humility, knowing how little we really know and respecting that growth in others. That, and a sense of humor where we don’t take ourselves and the world around us so damn seriously. When the false bookends of birth and death are kicked out and we see our experience as a continuum in the great ongoing creative process we gain amazing clarity and peace of mind and heart.

Somehow we need to get back to our natural playful spontaneity without fear and wrong self consciousness, as opposed to self awareness. We sense that is our lost paradise within but clearly it’s accessible even if only in brief spurts for now as we continue to emerge. But emerge we will.

There Is No Doomsday – Whatever Happens

Sure we live in potentially cataclysmic times. Haven’t we always? Isn’t so-called death at everyone’s door continually? Hasn’t the planet recycled periodically? And yes, technology and mad scientism are at an all time zenith, but does that really change the fundamentals? Death is our friend, like time, just as contrast and our bodies and circumstance are, with all their challenges.

A doomsday mentality is crippling, as programmed and reinforced by the controlled religious teachings, scientism and the media, but we don’t need to fall for it. Many long term preppers and researchers have woken up to the fact that they simply weren’t happy nor fully living life in that negative bunker mindset and just set out to live their passions. I think there’s no better medicine for ourselves and the planet than that. Creating and exuding inspiring truth, goodness and beauty are what the world, and each of us, needs, and have a much more vast effect than we can realize.

Some will say that is irresponsible. Sure, good and real information that tracks the external has its place. True information activism definitely plays a very important role and has been essential. Let’s just check the orientation and vibration of our sources, and most of all our own reactivity and emotional and spiritual state, and keep a healthy balance. This is nothing new to many folks who’ve passed through that dark gauntlet, but again this is simply growth and the true evolution of our souls.

Belief Systems Ain’t What They Used to Be – But They’re Still Attachments

We’ve all shifted through many paradigms, thinking the next one was “it”, only to find that new one wasn’t “it” either as we kept awakening. It reminds me of the saying, “Don’t follow spiritual leaders, seek what they were seeking.” We can’t condemn ourselves for falling for the next thing either, which usually coagulates into a new belief system in whatever new garments they take on. That’s just part of our learning process. Breaking free is continual. There is no one time awakening, but dogmatic belief systems of any sort are clearly obstacles to be overcome, and they’re not always obvious. The attaching false ego makes sure to disguise that to reinforce itself. It’s not an easy field of learning here but we’re up to it.

Many personal awakenings are much more profound than others, but we can’t settle down in some new paradigm. As the close out sale sign says, “Everything must go!” That’s a daily if not hourly and even continual challenge, and requires cheerful acceptance. That’s where taking things too seriously is a good yardstick to measure our spiritual health. That doesn’t mean to be flippant at all, just healthily detached at all times to the best of our abilities with an open willingness to keep learning and changing, and allowing the same in others. All while still being involved in life. Quite the paradox, but here we are.

That black/white, good/evil, right/wrong dualistic polarization we’ve been fed and entrained with can either help us simply learn and discern at a practical level, or seriously derail our consciousness. Judgementalism and unloving intolerance feed off of this shallow misconception. We’ve all done it and fallen for it. It’s that tricky wrong ego feeding and defending itself again, a sort of implanted survival technique giving us the wrong idea that we’re somehow above or better than others when we judge and fight for our space.

It causes separation. As we’ve all heard and is profoundly true, experiencing and knowing the Oneness of all things is paramount to our conscious awareness. This however flies in the face of everything we’ve been taught or is reinforced in this external societal matrix. Divide and conquer is a way deeper dynamic than just some political ploy for control. It’s a spiritual struggle to help us find our authenticity. Again, it all works for good.

Just Keep Going

Anyway, some thoughts from the hermitage. The best advice I could give anyone is to keep going. It’s all for good and growth and things do sort out over time, even the most devastating and challenging of life experiences.

But if not, that’s good too. Even if it doesn’t seem like it’s working out and appears to take forever.

Just hang in there and keep going. It always sorts out no matter how long it takes.

The wind’s at our back. Go with it. And just keep plodding along. We’re already there simply by keeping on in awareness. As someone wisely said, “We can’t get it wrong and it’s never done”.

We have eternity – it’s “time” to get used to it. We’re just in the thick of a very intense experience, by design. That overview helps us see clearly. We’re all simply learning and evolving.

Let’s enjoy it as best we can, and remember to stay loving, and keep rising.

We’re all in the same boat. And it’s rising with a majestic quantum tide. A unique opportunity in human history. Let’s make the best of it.

All the best, Zen

Labyrinth. Ancient Symbol Of Spiritual Development

From the ancient Minotaur myth to Wes Ball’s Maze Runner … why are Labyrinths so powerful and comforting in confusing times?

For thousands of years, humans have been fascinated by mazes and Labyrinths: built them, told stories about them, created games and puzzles around them.

According to legend, the original Labyrinth was built by architect Daedalus and his son Icarusto to house the Minotaur, a creature with the body of a man and the head of a bull.

Earliest Labyrinths

The Labyrinth is one of the most famous sites in Greek mythology. For those who are unfamiliar, King Minos of Crete is said to have commanded the skillful craftsman Daedalus to build an elaborate maze to contain the half-man, half-bull monster called the Minotaur. When Minos’s son Androgeus was murdered by the Athenians, Minos forced them to send seven of their sons and seven of their daughters to be sacrificed to the Minotaur every nine years. Eventually, the hero Theseus volunteered to be one of the fourteen, with the result that he killed the Minotaur with the help of Minos’s daughter Ariadne. Since Theseus went on to become the King of Athens, the cultural supremacy of that city meant that his stories have remained some of the best-known of Greek culture as a whole.

Minotaur Labyrinth

With that said, it is interesting to note that the Labyrinth was a popular symbol for the Cretans as well. For proof, look no further than the fact that the Cretans are known to have issued coins with the Labyrinth rendered in gorgeous detail. Curiously, while the earliest examples could be either unicursal or multicursal, these visual representations leaned towards the former more and more over time, with the result that multicursal versions didn’t make a return until hedge mazes managed to become popular in the Renaissance. Due to this, while “labyrinth” and “maze” tend to be used as synonyms for one another in conventional use, it is interesting to note that there are some specialists who define a “labyrinth” as being unicursal in nature and a “maze” as being multicursal in nature.

The path of spiritual enlightenment

In ancient cultures Labyrinths were crafted not to confused, but to send visitors on a spiritual journey.

Labyrinths are known as sacred gateways and have been found at the entrance of ancient sites around the world. Often located at the center of subtle ‘earth energies’ these temples enhance, balance, regenerate and confirm the unity with the cosmos. According to ancient beliefs the Labyrinth invites the intuition to come forth and it is kind of a meditative experience. It may symbolize a journey of self-discovery, a journey in to the center of the self and out again.

This is certainly evident in the mandalas of Tantric literature from India and, most notably, in the Rigveda (c. 1500 BCE) in which the various books progress along the same lines as a Labyrinth where one travels a spiritual path alone to eventually merge one’s inner journey with the outer world. Even Carl Jung, famous Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst  (1875-1961), saw the Labyrinth as a symbol of this reconciliation between the inner self and the external world.

Meaning of the Labyrinth is to symbolize a path of spiritual enlightenment

The ancient practice of walking a Labyrinth

Although numerous theories suggest that prehistoric Labyrinths served as traps for malevolent spirits or as defined paths for ritual dances, the meaning of the Labyrinth changed to symbolize a path of spiritual enlightenment.

In the Middle Ages, walking a cathedral labyrinth was a substitute for a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. Not everyone could make the long and arduous journey to the Holy Land, so walking a Labyrinth in a church was a devotional activity. Labyrinths were incorporated into the architecture of many churches in Europe.

Walking meditatively through the twists and turns of the labyrinth may help a practitioner process his/her twists and turns in the Labyrinth of life. The Labyrinth can also provide the opportunity to examine goals, assess talents and abilities, make decisions, and evaluate progress, both personally and professionally.

Moreover, there are those who see the Labyrinth as a huge concentration of power because of the way that the relevant paths are coiled round and round rather than running straight. Something that provides it with even more metaphysical weight. In any case, interested individuals have been known to use visual representations of the Labyrinth in various ways, with examples ranging from focusing upon its symbolic nature to pondering the path that runs through them over and over.

The Third Dimension of Fire

Elva Thompson, Contributor
Waking Times

“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.” ~Ecclesiastes 1:9 

What a bizarre and seductive reality we live in. A chaotic world of speed where survival is on overdrive. A surreal place where it’s hard to tell truths from lies anymore. But…confusing and scary as it maybe, everything is cosmically in order. The Old Age ended on Dec 21st 2012 and there is a reset time while the new programme is installed for the next twenty six thousand years.

Spiritual science tells us that at the end of every Grand Cosmic Year all species on earth should evolve into a higher plane of consciousness, and this is known as the Shift of Ages. It would appear that the cosmic wifi has been hijacked.

The Hijacking of Humanity

Humanity’s ascension frequency has been hijacked by the owners of this 3D construct, and our spiritual connection with nature has been severed. Even our physical interaction with each other has been intercepted…interfaced with AI, and replaced by the digital reality of the internet and social media. The meteoric rise of cell phones towers, gwen towers, smart everything and 5G full spectrum dominance is no accident. It’s perfect timing for the controllers of the human farm. They don’t want us to evolve out of their fractal, dualistic reality so they block the incoming cosmic information with electro – magnetic smog. They want to exploit us…keep sucking on our energy…in the same way that we don’t want to give our wild life and farmed food animals any right to life.

As a result of our faulty thinking, we are being locked into an energetic electro-magnetic prison and ushered into a new age of slavery. To keep us in a closed mental loop, they have insinuated all kinds of distractions to occupy our attention, and keep us confused and fearful – religion, politics, staged terror events, pandemics etc…take your pick.

It is a time of doubt for many people.

So who is the spider that has trapped us in its sticky web of deceit and illusion?

The Hell Fire Club Re-Visited

“Hell is empty. All the devils are here.” ~Shakespeare

It’s no secret that a cabal of elite satanists control the world and all its governments. A bunch of hidden hands that operate like the mob. Their reality is one of excess, fabulous wealth and power, murder, bribery, blackmail, secret societies, occultism, paedophilia, satanism. In other words the Hell Fire Club of do what you want with total freedom to break any laws without recourse…. like past like present.

Controlling the Grid

“For the life of the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.” ~Leviticus 17v:11

The elite have always used terror, black magic and blood sacrifice as a means of controlling the frequency of the earth’s icosahedral(water/emotional) grid. Their intent is to bathe all life on this plane in a fearful and violent energetic matrix that provides a medium for absolute control…a frequency where they can divide us and set us at each other’s throat. Our predictable responses to their constant negative media programming makes it easy for them to stoke the passions of our animalistic reptile mind, and keep us locked into the low frequency state of animal instinctive drive. To maintain this base level of awareness they need the energy of ‘terrified spiritual trauma’ produced by constant war, and the destruction of innocent young souls. This ‘blood trade’ could be the reason why millions of children go missing every year.

Spiritual Science

Spiritual science teaches that our reality is energetically maintained by the terror and torture of blood sacrifice. Blood infused with fear whether human or animal, bird, fish or reptile is the glue that holds this world together. The Abrahamic religions: Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism and Luciferianism all advocate blood sacrifice because they are ‘agent provocateurs’ of the negative force that manages the karmic, spiritual revolving door of humanity..life after bloody life. ( see my article Life after Life)

The Karmic Wheel

“I lay no wood, Brahmin for fire on altars. Only within burneth the fire I kindle.” ~Buddha

In contrast to the blood letting religions, Buddhism teaches compassion. The Buddha was against killing all beings without exception. He understood that all life is but One Life – and that our cruelties to living beings creates the karma that keeps the re-incarnation cycle rolling with energetic debt. A resonance pattern of return that waits like a psychic sledgehammer to smack us in the head, and blocks us evolving to a higher plane of existence.

If all life is One Life who are the animals?

Concepts Contrary to Our Programming

One of my mentors, Sir George Trevelyan often talked about sacred sympathy, the ability to intensify our imaginative thinking – to stretch our minds and entertain concepts contrary to our programming….

Sir George maintained along with Rudolph Steiner and other mystics that man is the symphony of the One Life – the Archetype containing all other life forms. In Gen 1 v26 we are told that heaven and earth, and its creatures were the first to be created – man appeared last in creation after all his instinctual, physical and spiritual aspects had been assembled.

What if every animal species is a specialised part of the human body? The ruminants: cattle, sheep, antelopes, deer, giraffes etc, can be seen as the digestive system externalised. The lion seems to be the chest in specialised development, the rhythmic system of heart and lungs. The eagle, representing the bird kingdom is seen as a metamorphosis of head and larynx. Snakes could be viewed as the guts, and fishes as recognized in astrology are the feet. The crustacea floating in the sea are like the floating organs in the blood such as kidneys, and it is well-known that blood and sea water are chemically practically identical. One only has to look at the development of the human embryo to realise we share features with other creatures, such as tails and gill-like structures.

It may be because of the dualistic nature of our reality, ‘the parts’ (the creatures) that make up the archetypal design of man are projected outside of Self and viewed as separate. Man as the microcosm reflects the macrocosm, and his bodily organs appear spread out through the living kingdoms of nature.

Rising Above Our Animal Nature

In the words of Sir George:

“Man is the symphony of the created world, and as such we need to rise above our animal qualities…qualities, which in their rightful place are noble and useful, but when manifesting in the human ego can be despicable. Scavenger hyena is an essential part of nature’s pattern, but he is not fitting if manifesting as a human faculty.” ~Operation Redemption

If we can imaginatively grasp the concept that animals are our greater body, we will realise that to become fully human we have to transmute and sublimate the (snake, wolf, rat, fox, etc) traits that exist within us.

Living Biological Computer Programme

The implications of this understanding are enormous and could well explain the suffering of human beings. If animals are aspects of self and we murder them by the billions every day, we are in reality attacking our own soul….heaping up a huge karmic debt that keeps us stuck in the re-incarnation cycle. Every time we intentionally hurt the creatures we are spiritually damaging ourselves, and when we eat their flesh we are cannibalizing our own essence.

Food for Thought

Years ago I watched a short video on you tube called Nature by Numbers. It was then I realised that all manifested life in this reality is based on fractal geometry: the Golden Rectangle, the Fibonacci spiral and phi , bodies equipped with programmed instructions and built-in desires that operate autonomously.

I have often pondered on the question…. If life is a biological computer programme what gives the living essence to the creatures and their ability to respond to love?

My conclusion is that the energy of our blocked multi dimensional awareness powers life in the natural world. This is the spiritual connection we feel with our pets, plants and nature as a whole. The illusion of separation is created by the dual nature of this dimension. There is only One Life and everything partakes of it…it is the power house of our Archetypal Idea…..

Until the next time we meet in digital reality stay aligned with life. Tread lightly on the earth and leave no foot print.

I recommend the video with the article. It gets to the point.

Here is the Nature by Numbers video:

Is belief in alien life a whole new religion ?

Image Credit: PD – Comfreak / Pixabay

Belief in intelligent alien life is on the increase. 

In the United States, there are almost as many believers in intelligent alien life as there are believers in God.

Professor Diana Pasulka of the University of North Carolina has recently published a new book – American Cosmic – which delves in to the parallels between religion and belief in UFOs.

The notion that mankind is not alone in the universe she argues, is itself becoming more and more like a kind of religion – especially given that over 50 percent of Americans and more than 60 percent of young Americans believe in alien life, a figure very close to that of those who believe in God.

“One way we can make sense of this is by using a very old but functional definition of religion as simply the belief in nonhuman and supernatural intelligent beings that often descend from the sky,” Pasulka told Vox.com’s Sean Illing in a recent interview.

“There are many definitions of religion, but this one is pretty standard.”

One way in which belief in God and belief in alien life differs, she argues, is that the idea that we are not alone in the universe is something shared (and often promoted) by prominent scientists.

“Here we have people who are actual scientists, like Ellen Stofan, the former chief scientist at NASA, who are willing to go on TV and basically make announcements like, ‘We are going to find extraterrestrial life’,” said Pasulka.

“She says we’re going to find life, we’re going to find habitable planets and things like that.”

“So that gives this type of religiosity a far more powerful bite than the traditional religions, which are based on faith in things unseen and unprovable.”
