There is a common sentiment in many traditions to seek the "authentic" original version of that tradition. I see this as fallacy. I believe that the truth is progressively revealed over time through discourse and syncretism. Some people are offended by the notion that the Abrahamic tradition was influenced by Sumerian, Egyptian, Persian, and Greek ideas, but I think that is its virtue. I believe that the truth is revealed through memetic evolution, and that like biological evolution, it is never complete, but is a continual process of selecting useful memes while discarding harmful ones. No wonder fundamentalists are so opposed to evolution, since they themselves refuse to evolve.

Your write-up poses this question to my brain: Why are people so worked up about finding "ultimate truth" or the totality of life through religion/spirituality, when all that may not be available to us [yet] or at least, not in/on the frequency(ies) we are tuned into?

I think it's part of human nature to seek. At the root of it, we seek for complete fulfillment and satisfaction. I mean, just imagine if you were completely and utterly fulfilled and satisfied. Why would you bother seeking out or doing anything at all? Yet the more sophisticated our seeking and searching becomes, we begin to realize that there is nothing that will give us lasting fulfillment and satisfaction in this completely transient world.

Many people then turn to religion or spirituality, which is a more subtle form of seeking and searching in order to find the 'ultimate truth' or whatever it is that we conceive will bring us that lasting fulfillment.

Anyways, it seems to me that that which seeks is what is being sought.

There is always more to be revealed. Every time we climb higher up the mountain, we see more of what is there, that couldn't see and were not even aware of being, at ground level or plateaus on the way up.

I think its good that wee seem to come to rest at plateaus, take it all in, and catch our breath before we move on.

Every time we get a camera further out into space, we see more of what has always been there.

Consider what you see with a primitive telescope and then, some of the images captured with the Hubble. Who knew there were such things as galaxies and so many of them. What will be revealed when we developed the technology to see better into the invisible wavelengths. Some is already developed and we are seeing even more that cannot be seem with the naked eye.

Same with our understandings in and of spirit. There is always more to be revealed as we better develop our ability and position to see more and seek to see more of it.

We do get that feeling of, "I got it all figured out". We often do within a limited framework however. There is always more to be revealed beyond that frame. You can map out what you see from a plateau on the mountain, or what you see with the telescope and get as  complete a picture as that lens or plateau can give you. There is always more beyond it though.

The beyond is always within us as well. One can just as easily seek sitting still while exploring in meditative states.

Some think that getting to a place of blissful peace in itself is the end. Where you find an end, you also have a new beginning and more is yet revealed.

Anytime we come to a place where we think, this is it and there can't possibly be any more to it, we may be right in a limited sense, if we are positioned within the limitations of a fixed framework, lens, or at a fixed plateau.

People forget that we are always working within limited frameworks until we start busting down walls and opening doors and windows, that we are working within the limited scope and range of a fixed lens, until we start developing higher powered ones and moving the angle around, and that we are standing at one elevation, until we start climbing higher.

Demius, it is cool that you understand where frequencies come into play. Like when science became able to tune into the invisible light spectrum and infrared range, they saw more. How many frequencies are there abuzz in the invisible spectrum? Who knows and what they will and can reveal to us about what has  been there, once we tune into them?

As the tools of science keep evolving and become more highly developed and higher powered to reveal more to us, we too can become more highly extra sensory developed and highly empowered with more light/love energy and have more revealed to us personally.

There are ends within limitations only. Beyond them, there are new beginnings. You may come to know all there is to know about whats in your bathroom. If you never leave it, you will think that your bathroom is it and that you know all there is to know. Fortunately, some of us usually get curious enough about the windows and doors and start opening up new things that we thought were closed up to us for good and wondering about where the water is coming from that pours out of the faucet when we turn that knob, and how a flick of the switch can create light in the room at night.

I don't think that there is any rush to keep developing. I think its important to take rests and just enjoy the view and contemplate what it all means to you and what you can find of use to take with you when you are ready to move on again.

When you get in tune with the cycles of nature and the cosmos, you will know what your own sense of timing is. People out of tune or getting to cozy in one spot, can find the tide rising over their heads and become forced to move to higher ground. People moving to fast, will find, that rock they saw back there and blew off as being useless to their personal wants and needs at the time, would've come in handy up the road for busting up a coconut when they got thirsty, and so are forced to go back to get it. Had they stayed there long enough to feel thirsty, they would've appreciated the rocks use before they left that spot and had known, to take it with them.

Timing is everything, watch for feeling rushed and slow it down or getting to cozy in one spot. Start feeling for it and when you get the feel of it, and pay attention to it life's dramas will cease. Dramas usually erupt when we get to cozy and don't want to budge or are in to much of a hurry and don't want to just stop and cool our jets and let it be as it is for the time being. Life gets peaceful and enjoyable when you are synced up in right timing with it.

That was all pleasant to write and remind myself of. Thanks for posting this topic Silver.

:peace: :heart:

Yeah something like that I guess. Although once you stop looking, there won't be anything to find, since you aren't looking for anything.

I think the problem is that throughout the process of things having been made/becoming easier (from the discovery of fire and the wheel, to using cars and airplanes...don't read as a human-monkey evolution, but as evolutions of thought that have happened), we've wanted to define what living is; because certainly, living is so many different things to one person/group of people and so many more to another, that who's to say what is and/or isn't living, as opposed to just breathing, accquiring food, shelter (of some form), reproducing (maybe even loving/sharing), which are the basics of living, therefore it is living.

Living is the experience of the interaction amongst ourselves and reality (of course, we exist as aspects of reality). The specifics of that experience could involve anything that we decide.

"Every time we get a camera further out into space, we see more of what has always been there."

As I see it there is an inherent problem here. Through ordinary means when we gaze at the sky we are looking directly in to the past. The universe may not have been this way for years or thousands of years, because it takes time for light to travel to the observer. In the chaotic transient universe we live in this time may have been sufficient enough for the universe to have seen great change. I find this very interesting. maybe we can apply physical laws to the workings of the cosmos as we see it years in the past but who is to say that what we take for permanent laws of nature might have been altered in our given time frame.

The horror/science fiction writer HP Lovecraft paints a picture of this beautifully (though with a quite negative and maddening connotation) In Lovecraft's stories the rules of physics are only properties of our immediate surroundings in space and the forces acting on the outer realms are terrifyingly alien. His view of the cosmos is really very psychedelic if you get into it and many of the creatures there and their mannerisms seem to resemble Mckenna's self transforming linguistic machine elves who dance existence into being.

The "always been there" wording foible hit me after I posted it. I didn't bother changing it because I figured people would know what I meant, which was to say that, when we develop greater capabilities and power to understand things with, we continue to become aware of things we didn't with just the use of our 5 physical senses. The process doesn't seem to end if we don't let it. Just as every answer can spawn new questions.

I realize that the distant stars as we see them now havn't always been that way. :lol:

You brought out some more interesting considerations  for us to enjoy. Thanks.

This may be a bit further out, but perhaps it is possible to view the stars directly. Is anyone familiar with bells non locality theory? What Einstein called spooky action at a distance. It seems to be a fairly convincing quantum mechanical explanation for clairvoyance etc. I don't presume to understand quantum physics but it seems plausible from a lay perspective

lol. Thats what he called it. Its basically a theory explaining objects effecting each other directly though no particular medium. For example a particle millions of miles away with no real contact with your body has the potential to spontaneously (or so it seems) put a force on it. This is done through no known space, Its like hyperspatial instantaneous information transfer. thus the spooky.

That is interesting, moreso that it was something Einstein contemplated (it seems like a quantam theory-type notion or something). Has it ever been observed?

It wasn't actually an Idea of Einsteins. those were just his words to describe it. I believe successful experiments have been done but I'm not positive. I think its fairly sure that it is a real phenomenon but its implications are more nebulous. there is a step from saying this happens to saying it proves telekinesis, clairvoyance, clairaudience, distant viewing, etc.

Without speculation on that bunch of stuff, it is still fascinating to contemplate. What would bring the energy to transfer in such a manner, and why would two points that share no relation as far as we can tell act in such a manner? Stuff like that. :stoned:

During a time when I was waaaaaaaaaay out there, I found myself at the book store looking at Bells theorums on quantum mechanics to try to makes sense of these meta-mechanical ideas that were popping into my head. I started making drawings of them and freaked when I saw similiar ones in a book about him. I  kept some but never fully came to understand them. It was like something was trying to show me somthing and I was just to dense to get it. :lol: Had to do with spirals, electromagnetics, reflective waves, odic fields, velocities of gravitaional waves, electrons jumping orbits, hot and cold pressure systems, right angles and propagation, ppfffft so over my head.

Anyway, what you described sounds like remote viewing on a galactic scale. :lol: I wonder if any remote viewing experiments were done with those who have good success rates to look more closely at distant stars and planets.

Anywhere I have travelled in conscious with a subtle body, I don't see things exactly as they are in the physical.

Once in a lucid dream, I decided to go visit an island I use to live on for fun.  The roof tops of the condos I lived in were a different color, and the beach bar I worked at had some wooden shutters that it didn't have when I left.

About 3 months later, a friend who went to visit sent me some photos of the gang at the bar. HOLY SHIT. There were the wooden shutters that I saw. The roof tops in 3-D hadn't changed color though.

I still don't know how to explain that to myself.

I just decided to pull those old notes and drawings out. They are about 11 years old. Their freaking me out. How weird that so much of it has to do with what I was just typing in the "do negative emotions serve us" post. Great timing to be reminded that I had them. Thanks! It's going to be fun pouring through these.

Lifes a trip.

:peace: :heart:

I would be very interested in seeing those drawings if your comfortable with sharing them. If not I completely understand, some things are just personal. If you still have any sort of burning interest in the matter of remote viewing, obe, and non locality I would very much suggest a book by Russell Targ called limitless mind. It is absolutely a delightful read, short and to the point but packed with infinitely interesting tidbits. it is sort off a combination of eastern philosophy and quantum mechanics in the first part and the second is a purely practical guide to remote viewing. Russell Targ also seems to be a very good and reliable source of this information being a long time scientist and paranormal explorer in later years. And I tend to be suspicious of this kind of talk but he says in his book and it has been documented elsewhere(I believe there is a documentary on the subject) that he and his friends and the Princeton parapsychology department were hired by the government to use remote viewing on the soviet union. And it was quite successful.

Where were you 11 years ago? After pouring through it, I found myself lead to this site

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dipole#Torque_on_a_dipole
and it hurt my brain :lol:

as understanding dipolar magnetics and making translations into understanding the laws of 5th dimensional consciousness better, seems to be some next step something has been guiding me to understand. That same "somthing I will keep nameless" had something in a channeled drawing I kept with the other stuff, meant for me to meditate on, that is in one of the pictures at that site. More Freaky.

I start to feel like I am going crazy and I closed it all up and put it back away. I don;t understand why the something has been wanting to communicate consciousness evolving concepts to me through the use of quantum mechanics and physics (thats easier for me) when I have no background with quantum science, or higher math to help me "get it" and make the translation to the morphegentic energy fields, supporting the structures of reality.

Back to where I feel best being which is intutiting my way through feeling things out and then trial and error and until I get formulas down. I don't think its good for me when I get to mental heavy and start thinking to much. I think its better that I stay more centered in gravtity in my heart place and feel things out more instead.

That book sounds good. Because of what I just said, I havn;t been reading new books too much. I use to gobble up books like that like  french fries years ago though. I have more in  my head then I will ever know what to do with let alone remember easily anymore.

I have been shifting to working at applying all a learned from it into daily living now. My time here at these forums is not so much about learning new things, rather, helping me to remember what I already have through other peoples postings and working to better integrate my own understandings through my own postings.

:peace: :heart:

I would say that is a very good intention! These little cosmic revelations don't due any good unless we can drag them down into our physical realm and make them manifest in the way you describe.

Ha ha ha ha I feel you there ! :cool: yesterday, my daughter was having a melt down and I took her by the shoulders and asked her to just BREEEEEEEATH, with me, in deep and out slow.

Worked like a charm-its all in breath.

Novelty, our breath is the easiest way to bring us back to peace and  harmony, which really, no matter how much we continue to learn, become aware of and understand, and how it never seems to end, what good is it all if we are not at peace and harmony within.

:peace: :heart:

Breath, and, subsequently, posture. Sometimes, when I am altered and am in an environment which isn't mostly set by myself (driving in traffic, at work, etc.), I might start to become tense, and then I realize that I am practically holding my breath. No wonder, eh? :grin:

Like being here
Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you

Inspiration, expiration, and that profound moment of silence in between. :grin:

Sort of gravitating back closer to our original point of discourse, I would be interested in discussing the idea that a "master" of any given religious or spiritual lineage is neccessary to those who seriously want to follow the path. I see how guidance is useful, but I think the human intelligence is sufficient in its own right to reach say bodhi mind without a official initiation into the nyingmina tibetan buddhist school by the holder of the unbroken line of dharmic transmission. Possibly this is just a survival technique of these schools of thought. How else would they propogate if the teaching needed no initiation ect. I'm sure this is part of the reason psychedelics are opposed by organized religion. because they are in fact the most democractic of the spiritual teachers. Just take the red pill...

Any thoughts? does anyone think that the master concept is valid?
