Earth Changes – The Star People

with 5 comments

As we are entering a very interesting and critical phase of human and planetary development, which is reflected in the changes now happening to Mother Earth’s form, we will now start to see many of the Sages enter or come forward on the world stage. As fear will automatically be a byproduct and natural response to the current events for numerous people, great discretion is required and the development and heightening of ones personal guidance system is essential in order to discriminate between wisdom and information generated by those with personal agendas. May all beings be happy.

Carlos Castenada Youtube Radio Interview

with 3 comments

This is of interest to many people, it is an interview with Carlos Castenada the author of The Teachings of Don Juan and other books.  In the interview Carlos talks about his first encounter with Don Juan.

It would be very easy to disregard the material of Castenada  because of the usage of psychotropic plants.  But anyone who has ever read between the lines of The Journey to Ixtlan and Tales of Power will realize immediately that the agenda behind all of the experiences was to help break down the normal way of thinking.  Please note, I am in no way saying that people need to use any substances to break through from limited thought.  There are a number of books in the series, if I was to recommend any I would say to read The Journey to Ixtlan followed by the Tales of Power, within these two books is the essence of the teaching.

What is a Real Question?

leave a comment »

I love this question. I saw it today on a Social Network and I just had to create a response.

Rumi Sketch

Krisnamurthi once said “can we ever ask the right question”.
It took a while to get on top of this one but eventually I came to piece with it.
The mind has endless meanderings and creates lots of little puzzles for itself based on what it already knows, what it thinks the world, Universe, God or whatever is.  It sets up its own limitations but pretends it is understanding open and ready for the ‘answer’ that will solve its stupid puzzles.

I think we are all born with an inbuilt question and that very question is “who on earth am I really?”  ….  And that is the underlying real question that is of most importance to humanity. We could ask the same thing a few other ways Where we go skewiff is trying to resolve it with the mind.

The mind is NOT the tool to answer this problem, the answer is outside the framework of thought.  And the philosophers and intellectuals, and the supposed Spiritual people will ramble on for ages with questions and answers, but all this is doing is keeping the mind busy and sending it up the garden path.
So a real question as I see it is something that requires a transformation of our Being or really centers us in our being, and that is the answer to all Zen Koans or parables.  And in order to answer it correctly EVERYTHING must go.

What is Enlightenment? The Endless Quest

with 3 comments

I was standing in the sun this morning before I went to work, it’s winter here but it must’ve been about 22 degrees C. I could feel the warmth on my skin and all was very blissful, and then my mind entered and I was thinking, is it vitamin D or A, my chain of thought was broken.
I had been thinking a little bit about the question What Is Enlightenment? I wasn’t in a hurry to answer but eventually, something emerged, and I will try to package in a way that makes sense, so please bear with me.

Enlightenment

The question itself could be a little bit of an issue. I remember Krishnamurthi once saying, Can we ever ask the right question? NOTE: I am not a Krishnamurthi clone either.

What is Enlightenment? As soon as we say “IS” it implies that such a thing exists. We have read oodles of books o the Spirit, some very profound and others that are best suited for the fireplace on a cold winters night. They all seem to have an opinion about Enlightenment, Freedom,Truth or the God thing. Well I’d like start fresh and challenge the lot, not for the sake of an argument but because I am reasonably clear that there is a serious issue with the question.

So I see a problem a big one What IS Enlightenment? As soon as we say IS, it is saying there is something there and the next logical step is to go and find; and what is the thing we are seeking to obtain or achieve and that is Enlightenment, that’s a no-brainer really. The issue for me is, at the very beginning of the quest we are beaten, we are seeking, the sought being Enlightenment and us being the one who wants it, the needy, the lacking, the one that is minus the thing we seek.

Let’s go a little further with this. I’ll throw this in because I think it is relevant ‘Any movement in any direction is a movement away from ourself’, please read that line again and think on it for a moment.

The very question ‘What is Enlightenment?’ Implies lack and when we look at it even harder, it’s easy to see the separation; we are sepearated from Enlightenment. I need to challenge that, not for the forum or an argument but because it is misconception. Underlying us, is the very thing that is sought, the very experience which we are seeking is the very thing that is at our core. If we move towards solving the question, we are defeated because there is no need to take the journey, because we are moving away, out of God space, trying to solve a question which has come from thought. The mind is wanting to know, the mind asks a question, it creates its own self imposed perameters and says ‘ Hey Answer this’, it’s really saying, look I am great, I have the ability to understand what is outside the framework of thought, but I shall pretend to be wise, I shall because I’m pretty shifty, proud and haughty, I can pour the ocean, the whole of it into my little bucket.

So where am I now? Ok , here it is. The question just doesn’t do it for me, the question is a problem to itself and try as you might, you’ll be on the path of Endles Becoming, on the quest like the deer chasing the musk, always seeking the elusive Beloved and moving away from yourself

There is nowhere to go and nothing to do.  And that’s what people find so difficult

Be There Now

Peace

Tony
