THE “HOW” OF ASCENSION

lafayette compound 007

THE “HOW” OF ASCENSION

LOVE is NOT ours for the asking; it is ours to ACCEPT.
There is no other way to experience it. All else is about the giving and receiving of APPROVAL.

We beg for approval.

We bargain with promises of APPROVAL.

Or…

WE ACCEPT LOVE

(When we seek Love we block it; LOVE is unconditional. Seeking is a condition)

The search for LOVE taints that which we seek by the very SEARCH itself.

To search demonstrates our confusion with these two basic concepts. APPROVAL often feels like LOVE to our narcissistic, egoistic selves but when we lose it we seldom “get” it; we employ that same old habit of seeking APPROVAL and calling it LOVE.

We beg, we meditate, we do what the group does and the pain continues.

C.G. Jung referred to this confusing collection of hopeless affirmations as Ascension thinking. The logic supporting  this warning is that since Love is unconditional,  the ONLY way to experience it is to ACCEPT it; the harder we try to get to heaven, the further away it appears to be. “Seeking” is a condition”. 

Accept the Love and pass it on.

A SIX PACK, A HAMMER AND A CHURCH KEY, PLEASE.

A SIX PACK, A HAMMER AND A CHURCH KEY, PLEASE.

 

It is said that it is easier to break an empty bottle of beer than a sealed one.

It is also said that it is easier to break anything than to fix it, unless that thing is an undesired habit or a relationship.

Is it any consolation to realize that when a thing is made by man, that something was first destroyed?

Whatever we make of ourselves requires raw materials, desire and a whole lotta Love.

LANCELOT, A FREE MAN.

lafayette compound 008

LANCELOT,  A FREE MAN.

Lancelot was a free man, deterred by naught, encumbered by little, a seeker of truth who in truth and completely unknown to his otherwise intelligent self, was actually looking for one safe place in a very dangerous world.

Like all free thinkers, the sculptor, the architect, the composer, the scientist, Lancelot continued on his lifelong quest for Truth, accumulating nothing, enjoying everything  and discovering at least one new thing every day of his planetary journey, until…

Lancelot discovered Camelot.

Thinking this to be the repository for the truth he thought he was seeking and inspired by the Love that he was discovering, Camelot appeared to Lancelot to be the goal which had been his for so very long.

“Yes”, said Lancelot “I want this”.

His acceptance however was an error of judgment. Yes, Camelot offered Knowledge and Love, but in order to be experienced, needed to be shared. He could remain in Camelot and share Love and absorb the Knowledge but this would be the end of his search. And such was his Revelation.

Camelot was a Stargate.

Camelot was not the goal after all, and understanding now, that the path he had taken which brought him to Camelot in the first place, need not stop at Camelot or at any other place; the Path was indeed where he needed to be and so Lancelot moved on.

Lancelot was now once again a free man, deterred by naught, encumbered by little, a seeker of truth who in truth and somewhat more aware now, this reasonably intelligent man on the Path  was no longer seeking one safe place in a dangerous world.

Like all free thinkers, the sculptor, the architect, the composer, the scientist, Lancelot re-embarked on his lifelong path of Truth, accumulating nothing, enjoying everything and discovering at least one new thing every day of his planetary journey.

Lancelot was a free man.

REVEALING FALSE BELIEFS HELPS NO ONE

REVEALING FALSE BELIEFS HELPS NO ONE

 

All beliefs are indefensible substitutes for knowledge.

The term Idle Gossip is redundant.

The term Idol Worship is also redundant.

The popularity of an idea does not make it true.

And, assembling a hundred logical arguments for

the purpose of REVEALING FALSE BELIEFS…

HELPS NO ONE.

INSTEAD…

Perhaps we, who are driven to identify the mistaken beliefs of society, could busy our selves seeking to encourage others to seek truth.

Every supporter of every idea whether truthful or not was motivated by the same goal as all of nature; whether a lowly amoeba or a newborn human babe, we all spend every waking moment in the search for safety.

I spent nearly forty years trying to identify a possible explanation for information acquired with the aid of a “sense” which was new to me in midlife. I began to think in terms of “what if?”. Words like psychic and ESP and telepathy were unacceptable to me.

One day, decades later, it began coming  together.

I had hoped for evidence of  “telepathy” . What I apparently had discovered however was a description of an intelligent creative force which was in possession of the memory of all past and future events and which would necessarily possess the only known quantity of unconditional LOVE for SELF which would include the components of everything which would make access to this wellspring, this veritable fountain of youth, I was surprised to say the least and I wanted to share my discovery.

Shortly thereafter I began to realize that my discovery was not entirely unique. This Higher Power’s job description had been described thousands of years ago. It was not considered to be God but a memory of all past events; it was called the Akashik record.

Perhaps the originator of this idea arrived at this conclusion using logical means but apparently  the idea of the memory of future events had not yet presented itself.

I realized that perhaps I am the first to acquire the knowledge of how it all happened. I knew that it was probably as true to say that my AKASHIK-JEHOVAH had been here forever and is here for the duration as to say HE/SHE/IT had been created by the BIG BANG.

LIVE. SERVE. MOVE ALONG.

Competitive spirit, the will of the weak

Of proof.
Wasted moments of life without purpose
Uncomfortably
Long of tooth.

So where are they now; What purpose was served
What evidence
Did  survive?
(Arms out. Now walk. Now jump up and down.
Replicate
Signs of Life.)

Competitive spirit; no more to be seen.

Gone.
Service to Other; a life now with purpose

DREAD

 lafayette compound 007

DREAD

 

DREAD…
seeks to confirm the collection of years, yea decades
of affirmation, begun by that first awareness,
which led to the first thought
became  the first ought
bought (by few) and
blithely ignored by most.

The host mans its post
of the yet – to – be ghost
and marks territory.

(Deliberate Ascension, the construction of prayers beseeching the Favor of Forever succeeds only in yielding a Black Hole. On the other hand Forgiveness is the Face of Unconditional Love.)

 DREAD not and do the Next Thing

CURIOSITY KILLED WHAT

220px-Schimpanse_zoo-leipig

Curiosity killed the cat, caught the catfish and fed Fred. Curiosity is the key to change, discovery and the next thing. Without curiosity there would be nothing new; there would be no joy, no one to read these words. Curiosity feeds fin, fowl and the hairy beast; it draws us to the stars and transforms chimps to champs as the pursuit of solutions straightens the back, calms the brow and finds more and more uses for finger dexterity.

Curiosity compels those who possess it to improve; it enhances desire and defines progress. Plato possessed it. You and I possess it. So does the rat in the Skinner cage.

Curiosity gives way to discovery, change and an opportunity to gather knowledge. What will we learn? Can we depend on what we learn? Knowledge often disappoints. Today’s knowledge is soon replaced or enhanced by tomorrow’s startling revelation. We depend heavily on that which promises to fulfill our need for Truth.

To know only a desire to satisfy the most temporary needs of the moment must be the most desperate approach to life, though I doubt that such knowledge is disturbing to chimps.
