What Do YOU Really Know? More Importantly What Do YOU Connect With?

We live in a time when this game is being played by words, the media, religious dialogue, and political babble. Where you would hope it would be played—in education, science and in politics—where deeper answers which are sorely needed are not often countenanced, because superficialities pass as wisdom in the popular mind.

We carry a great deal of information that we only possess by memory and we carry on a social life in connection to such memorized information. We ought to ask ourselves what part of that information we truly connect with spiritually—what part of our knowledge is “living?” And what part do we truly possess as our own? Do we rely too often on quoting authorities? Or can we speak with authority as true “knowers” ourselves? Of such things we ought to be very clear because they point us to the only true foundation within that justifies thinking of ourselves as serious.

Reality is at best what we conceive it to be, and our conscious thoughts form that reality. “First there was the word”. This is no longer philosophical thinking, as quantum physics is validating our holographic existence and our very thoughts are the basis for matter formation. So it becomes now clear that we are what we THINK we are.

Therefore, given this factual realty, who do you think you are? When we honestly examine that question, we begin to realize that our thoughts may not be our thoughts, but more an amalgamation of other people’s thoughts that we have adopted. Not that there is anything wrong with that, it is how we learn. However, in the process, we do lose sight of who WE are.

To be honest, we are all lost in other people’s thoughts and beliefs. This is enhanced because those who understand this reality more deeply know that using discovered techniques, they can CONTROL what we think. Call it marketing or subliminal programming, mind control, or group hypnosis, it works and is being applied daily to our own thought processes.

The recognition of thinking in its higher form—what we often call “living thinking” is sorely needed at this point. Who am I really? What if we applied this question to all of our knowledge to aid us in this quest to becoming true “knowers?” Understanding of who? or what? is it that lies behind the words, the factual representations that we gather in our studies, that is presented to us in the media, and that we memorize in our search for knowledge? Or we might ask: Why do we seek at all? What is it that we seek in all of our questing for wisdom and knowledge? Essentially, it is “to know God,” or perhaps better stated—“to know the spiritual foundation of things.” This is not an oversimplification; it is a profound truth—an ideal. As spiritual seekers we should not be looking for answers in the ordinary sense—becoming satisfied with bits of fact. Facts are dead if they are not stepping-stones to more penetrating questions and further answers.

At this moment in time, there are a lot of people beginning to feel they are “awake” or in the “awakening” process. What is that really in DIRECT relationship to you? It implies we have been asleep or deceived. However, what is it EXACTLY that we have been deceived about? Do we really understand this on a very personal level?

Changes are in the air. We feel this intuitively but what are those changes and what do they mean to you personally? How do you personally effect those changes? How are you participating in the awakening?

It is this paradigm that is the dramatic shift affecting the changes we are experiencing. It is not about what we know, but what we feel. This is about reconnecting with ourselves, and more importantly our higher self. Even this paltry article is useless to you except to stimulate you to ask the question, “Who Am I Really?”

We Need to Understand the Citizens United Ruling was an Act of War

As we watched these last mid-term elections, nearly $4 Billion dollars was spent by special interest groups, most outside the area where the local elections were held. A majority of republicans were elected and it is now certain that this term of Congress will be even more ineffective than the current congress which broke all the records for being a “do nothing” congress. This was by design of course, along with ten years of relentless gerrymandering.

Now this is not a political argument we are about to make. No, it far more serious than politics. What we are witnessing are the final acts of war against the people of America. No, that is not a conspiracy theory, it is fact. It is official and substantiated by none other than the honorable academic institution, Princeton University.

First, we need some background and some history of how the war was fought. The acts of this war took place and continue to take place in our controlled media, by insuring ignorance through the expanding blocking of access to higher education, in our local communities with re-districting, and through our higher courts. It is being conducted by people unaccountable to us and they are using our legislative process and the alphabet agencies, along with our now militarized police as their “boots on the ground”.

American media is fond of speaking about “Russian Oligarchs” as if Russia were the only nation that allowed accumulation of such unprecedented wealth. The Yeltsin days of disorder and collapse indeed saw the rapid rise of many fortunes and oligarchs — persons of very much wealth. Some of them have proven patriotic citizens, some like Khodokorvsky or the late unlamented Boris Berezhovsky proved to be loveless gangsters.

A new study, however by a Princeton University Professor, of the influence of very wealthy or economically powerful persons on American political policies makes clear for the first time that a genuine American Oligarchy has staged a slow coup d’état of our US foreign and domestic policy over the past three decades since the era of Ronald Reagan. This American oligarchy today is the major force for war and disorder across the planet.

One of America’s most elite universities, Princeton, concluded this fact. It is ironic since during the early 1960’s, like other prestigious universities, Princeton was accessible to anyone and still classmates came from elite preparatory private schools like Andover or Exeter. Classmates with names like Firestone or Prince Faisal were attending. Then tuition cost $650 a year, the price of a used 1956 Chevy at the time.

Today tuition for one year at Princeton costs $41,820. Princeton speaks of money and elite families. So it is significant that a new study would be published by two Princeton professors on wealth in America since 1981. Martin Gilens is Professor of Politics at Princeton University together with Benjamin I. Page, Professor at Northwestern University, have published results of a unique analysis “using a unique data set that includes measures of the key variables for 1,779 policy issues.”

The study concludes that, “Multivariate analysis indicates that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while average citizens and mass-based interest groups have little or no independent influence. The results provide substantial support for theories of EconomicElite Domination…”

Their study further concluded,

“When the preferences of economic elites and the stands of organized interest groups are controlled for the elite class, the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.”

Finally they conclude,

“…Our analyses suggest that majorities of the American public actually have little influence over the policies our government adopts. Americans do enjoy many features central to democratic governance, such as regular elections, freedom of speech and association, and a widespread (if still contested) franchise. But we believe that if policymaking is dominated by powerful business organizations and a small number of affluent Americans, then America’s claims to being a democratic society are seriously threatened.”

Crony 1

In a subsequent media interview, Gilens noted what they concluded in their analysis of volumes of data from 1981-2002 for government policy decisions and the role of elites versus ordinary citizens in some 1,800 different policy initiatives:

“One central factor is the role of money in our political system, and the overwhelming role that affluent individuals and organized interests play, in campaign finance and in lobbying.

And the second thing is the lack of mass organizations that represent and facilitate the voice of ordinary citizens. Part of that would be the decline of unions in the country which has been quite dramatic over the last 30 or 40 years. And part of it is the lack of a socialist or a worker’s party.”

The study verifies with ample empirical data what we all know from living life as an American over the past four decades. There has been a silent coup d’etat of the monied class, an American oligarchy. It is also significant that their study’s analysis of data ENDED before the last two election cycles and BEFORE the absolutely corrupt Citizens United ruling by the Supreme Court. It has only gotten worse since that ruling. In fact, one could argue that corrupting the Supreme Court was the FINAL and decisive action that killed any notion that democracy still exists in America.

Names such as Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, David Rockefeller, Sheldon Adelson (main financier of Mitt Romney for President), the Koch Brothers (main financiers of the Tea Party political movement), George H.W. Bush and family have dominated the last two election cycles. The top 1% has reshaped the fundamentals of American life, culture and above all politics. A decision to wage war today against Iraq, Afghanistan or Syria depends not on the will of average Americans, but on the profits gained by the banking industry and the military industrial complex that President Eisenhower warned us about during his famous farewell speech.

Obama was elected on a pledge to close the US Army torture center at Guantanamo and six years on has yet to do. He won a Nobel Peace Prize in his first month and proceeded to wage more war in Afghanistan, Egypt, Libya and most recently Syria and Ukraine.

It is important to have this in mind when judging “America.” The United States of America today bears little resemblance to that ideal we think we know. The oligarchy has taken policy control behind a thin façade of “democracy” and has ultimately ruined the industrial and social fabric of the United States.

idiots

We need to wake up to this reality and not allow their continuing propaganda to keep us polarized over issues that really don’t matter in the larger picture. This is truly about the future of our families, our children, and grandchildren. What are we going to tell our grandchildren when they have no dreams, no hope, only labor and poverty to look forward to in their lives? We didn’t act? We didn’t vote? We didn’t resist? We didn’t care?

These are not political opinions expressed in this article, these are facts, and now facts verified by reputable academics that have conducted a several years study. What more do we need to understand? How much longer are we going to continue to be the sheep sent to slaughter on the altar of profits for the few? The term slaughter is used here both literally and figuratively. Literally, slaughter of our young men and women in contrived wars financed on both sides by the bankers and orchestrated by military contractors’ orders to paid cronies , and figuratively by the continuing impoverishment of workers and the denial of access to health and educational benefits for our children.

The Hidden True Nature of Us

Whether you consider yourself “awakened”, or on a quest for the truth, or you are religious, or really haven’t bought into all this new age stuff, one key question we all at least think about. Do we really have a soul, and is there some sort of life after death? More has been written on this subject in the last 30 years than was previously written in the last 8,000 years.

We have channellers, evangelists, gurus, psychics, and a whole assortment of books on after life experiences. Yet the answer somehow seems elusive to the majority of us. The question is why is something that is so universal felt, if true, so hidden. My quest for answers has lasted nearly 45 years. The one thing that has become apparent is all knowledge known is both true and false. By that I mean within mythology, ancient writings, modern day new age information, religious texts from all faiths, and aboriginal stories there is both truth and deception.

What is universal in all of these sources is the eternal struggle between “dark forces” and the “light”. This , in essence, means the truth is contained within these sources, but has been distorted to such a degree that the power of the truth is rendered undiscernibly invisible to us.

soul-purpose

Whether this was perpetrated by Annuaki, as Stitchin alludes from his translation of ancient Sumerian tablets, or the work of some multi-dimensional beings called Archons, or any other manner of deception, like Greys manipulating our genes is really beside the point.

The reality is our own illusions of who we are and our own lack of will that keeps the veil pulled over our eyes. So in the context that most every human believes he or she has a soul, let’s assume that is true. However, in accepting this hypothesis, we must also accept that within us is a consciousness that transcends death and survives. Oddly, most of us do not have much difficulty in accepting this hypothesis. What is strange is we seem to have great difficulty in applying that knowledge to our physical life and situations.

Historically, most scholars believe that the greatest knowledge of the true nature of who we are was destroyed in the libraries of Alexandria. The destruction of the Library of Alexandria, one of the largest and most significant libraries of the ancient world, ended most of the knowledge of really ancient histories of man. The library is famous for having been burned, resulting in the loss of many scrolls and books, and has become a symbol of “knowledge and culture destroyed”. Although there is a tradition of the burning of the Library at Alexandria, the library may have suffered several fires or acts of destruction, of varying degrees, over many years. Different cultures may have “blamed” each other throughout history, or distanced their ancestors from responsibility, and therefore leaving conflicting and inconclusive fragments from ancient sources on the exact details of the destruction.

Whether the burned books were only some stored books or books found inside the library itself, the nature of the loss was described by Roman stoic philosopher Seneca (c. 4 BC – AD 65) who refers to 40,000 books having been burnt at Alexandria. Ancient and modern sources identify four possible occasions for the partial or complete destruction of the Library of Alexandria: Julius Caesar‘s fire during his civil war in 48 BC; the attack of Aurelian in AD 270 – 275; the decree of Coptic Pope Theophilus in 391 AD; and the Muslim conquest of Egypt in (or after) AD 642. There is no doubt valuable information that pre-dates our current knowledge was lost.

However, historically, one particular tablet, The Emerald Tablets of Thoth were somehow preserved and guarded down through history until this day. Also known as the text of the Smaragdine Tablet gives its author as Hermes Trismegistus (“Hermes the Thrice-Greatest”), a legendary Hellenistic combination of the Greek god Hermes and the Egyptian god Thoth. Despite the claims of antiquity, it’s believed to be an Arabic work written between the sixth and eighth centuries. The oldest documentable source of the text is the Kitāb sirr al-ḫalīqa (Book of the Secret of Creation and the Art of Nature), itself a composite of earlier works. This volume is attributed to “Balinas” (or Pseudo-Apollonius of Tyana) who wrote sometime around the eighth century. In his book, Balinas frames the Emerald Tablet as ancient Hermetic wisdom. He tells his readers that he discovered the text in a vault below a statue of Hermes in Tyana, and that, inside the vault, an old corpse on a golden throne held the emerald tablet. Following Balinas, an early version of the Emerald Tablet appeared in Kitab Ustuqus al-Uss al-Thani (Second Book of the Elements of Foundation) attributed to Jabir ibn Hayyan. The Smaragdine Tablet was first translated into Latin in the twelfth century by Hugo von Santalla. The text is also in an enlarged thirteenth century edition of Secretum Secretorum (also known as Kitab Sirr al-Asrar). These tablets can be read in their entirety here, The Emerald Tablets of Thoth.

These tablets are significant in that Thoth clearly states he is a survivor of Atlantis who came to Khem (Egypt) to establish a civilization and he dedicated several hundred years to educating these peoples on the truth of life.

To our discussion and consideration, this excerpt from the tablets is key to understanding the duality of our nature:

Deep in Earth’s heart lies the flower,
the source of the Spirit
that binds all in its form.
know ye that the Earth is living in body
as thou art alive in thine own formed form.
The Flower of Life is as thine own place of Spirit
and streams through the Earth
as thine flows through thy form;
giving of life to the Earth and its children,
renewing the Spirit from form unto form.
This is the Spirit that is form of thy body,
shaping and moulding into its form.

Know ye, O man, that thy form is dual,
balanced in polarity while formed in its form.
Know that when fast on thee Death approaches,
it is only because thy balance is shaken.
It is only because one pole has been lost
.

Emerald Tablets of Thoth – Tablet XIII –The Keys to Life and Death

Throughout history people who really seek the truth, open their minds, and dive into this reality have been demonized, ostracized and eventually slaughtered. Christians were slaughtered every day after the death of Jesus before Constantine declared Christianity the official religion in 325 AD at the council of Nicea. Were these early Christians really Gnostics? That is a very good question. St Paul’s writings were definitely of Gnostic origin and virtually all the writings of the Gnostics were destroyed, which includes the Library of Alexandria. The butchering and slaughtering continued through the dark ages and then into the Spanish Inquisition, where the Cathars were wiped out in France. The peoples who lived next to the Cathars said they were the most peaceful and righteous people they had ever met. They were still wiped off the face of the earth for being heretics, which simply means ‘a belief or opinion contrary to orthodox religious doctrine. In recent times, this type of behavior is not tolerated in so called civilized societies, so people who are looking for the truth have been growing in numbers slowly. Now, thanks to the internet, they are starting to communicate with each other.

Gnosticism simply means knowing. Again there are stories to help people understand the situation we are in. To put it simply though, Gnosticism is a journey of inner discoveries, so you can speak with authority and confidence of your knowledge because it is an experience and not conjecture or hear say. The inner journey is a fabulous journey, but enlightenment comes at a price. The price is when accumulating and recovering all of the historical knowledge, one begins to realize that there are a number of individuals who have possession of the true nature of our being and they jealously guard it and keep it from the general public in order to have power over the rest of us.

In the 80s and 90s a Dr. George Meeks conducted scientific experiments to ascertain the truth about whether we have a “soul” or some type of organized consciousness. He did in fact present irrefutable scientific proof that indeed we do. He discussed the relationship between our brain and our mind, and our physical body and our ethereal bodies. Not only did he discuss these unique relationships, but he also produced experiments where he physically documented both and photographed them. Here is a good lecture from Dr. George Meeks who also mentions the dark forces at work, but doesn’t go into it. He does talk about the levels of consciousness we need to exceed to get out of this trap Here is the link to one of his last complete lectures for your consideration. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LyN0sKotk4Y

A great quote from Meeks was that when we understand the true nature of who we really are, we can live in a joyous manner in this world of sorrows and tribulations.

There is something happening to us and we are evolving into something much greater than we realize. It is time to speak up and speak your truth. It is time to stop being controlled by peer pressure. It is time to say ‘no more’ to being walked over. It is time to stop being ignored and be heard. It is time to look into the nature of our reality and understand that this is an amazing existence that should be cherished. It is time to realize we are connected to everything on a quantum level. It is time to reject the phony new age movement and the phony green movement both controlled by the globalists, and become fully conscious and environmentalists ourselves. It is time to come to the simple realization that we are all love at our source. It is time to rid ourselves of this cesspool of a control system that is trying to hold humanity in a box. It is a time for courage. It is time for love. It is a time for compassion. It is a time of information, so there is no excuse for ignorance. It is time for the rise of the Knowing.

It is really quite simple. You and I and every living thing is eternal in nature. Our destiny and our experiences cannot unfold without our permission. Sadly we give that permission through ignorance and a lack of personal effort to understand who we really are by nature. Require that true knowledge be revealed to you personally. If you have not already, begin your quest. I assure you will not regret asking daily “who am I really?”
