Everything that exists in our physical, material world once existed in the mind of a human being. It is simply called ‘imagination.’ It is the beginning of all the cause and effect in reality, as reality is merely the world of effects and the physical extension of the spiritual world. It is through imagination that the greatest inventions of mankind have been discovered. For example, the theoretical work of Serbian inventor Nikola Tesla, who best known for his contributions to the design of the modern electrical alternating current (AC), is the result of his imagination. His work then went on to influence the invention of the radio and x-rays.
“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.” ~Nikola Tesla
It is through the imagination that mankind has discovered many of our universe’s mysteries, which are actually hiding in plain sight ,such as gravity, to the more seemingly complex as relativity, as formulated by Albert Einstein
“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.” ~Albert Einstein
All of existence, our entire universe, all of our history and our knowledge are all due to something inside of the human mind. The human mind is like a radio receiver accessing information from the universal mind also known as God. And like the radio, the mind becomes useless without the signal of imagination. However, thinking is the conscious act of imagination. So when we think or imagine, is it really our own thoughts of our own creation? Or did we tap into the images given to us by the universal mind?
But when it comes to our imagined physical universe, it is measurable, it is the world of quantity, the world of reason, and the reality of limits and it is as malleable like potters clay with the power of intention. However, the world of imagination is boundless, it is the world of nonsense, and the world of infinity, it is the cause of our present, our future, and our reality. Open your mind.
“The pendulum of the mind alternates between sense and nonsense, not between right and wrong.” ~Carl Jung

“There is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we’re the imagination of ourselves.” ~Bill Hicks
“We’re making it up. The world, the universe, life, reality. Especially reality.” ~Tony Robbins
A belief is only a chronic and repetitive pattern of thought. It is nothing more than thoughts we continue to think, over and over again. We are prisoners of our own minds, of our own beliefs, and many are unaware how beliefs create limits in our reality. It is through our beliefs that we create our reality and our individual beliefs are what contributes to the collective matrix as whole.
“All our knowledge has its origin in our perceptions.” ~Leonardo Da Vinci
What do you believe? Why do you believe what you believe? Do you believe that you are your name, your body, do you believe in your religion? Do you believe in the existence of an external God? When God is found within you? However, how can you believe in God? When by the simple act of believing in God limits what is unlimited. The belief in God becomes it’s own final obstruction to the discovery of the Universal Mind. A collective reality is an illusion, nothing in our physical world is real, it is only a mirror of what is within our subconscious minds. Perhaps this is what Jesus meant when he said:
“My kingdom is not of this world.”
If you look deep into the physical nature of our bodies you will find cells and molecules. If you go further you will find different combinations of atoms. Go further and you will find electrons, protons and neutrons. Again, go even further and you will find empty space. All of this emptiness is happening within our minds. Even in our brains, which is where we believe that the mind resides, is not real. It is a construct of the mind itself. However, no matter how empty our physical reality is, an individual reality is not an illusion but an abstraction of an internal belief that exist within us. It is what we pull out of it, and we can abstract only what we become aware of, reflected back to us like a mirror as physical reality. It is God’s way of becoming self aware through you and me. Our beliefs only serve to keep us from thinking that we’re not insane. Remember you cannot spell the word ‘belief’ without the word ‘lie’.
“I would never die for my beliefs because I might be wrong.” ~Bertrand Russell
“If you look in the mirror and don’t like what you see, don’t blame the mirror. If you look at the world and don’t like what you see, don’t blame the world.”
“Living is easy with eyes closed; misunderstanding all you see.” ~John Lennon
“People only see what they are prepared to see.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
People today seem to be very preoccupied with a reality that only exists within their own minds, which causes cognitive blindness. In a way, that also makes people fail to perceive the reality that actually exists around them and causes a lack of appreciation of people, life and reality. We miss opportunities and don’t even realize it. Instead of being concerned about the reality or time that iss ‘now,’ we limit our minds by our own ideas and pre-occupy ourselves with the past and the future. Take for instance, if you’re looking for that perfect partner, you will fail to recognize him or her even if that person was standing right in front of you, especially if that person is rare. Not only is being rare valuable, but it also becomes unrecognizable. And all due to the preconceived and self imposed limits we have placed on our own minds. Your perception about a thing is what creates your idea about it. For example, Walt Disney was fired from a newspaper for “lacking imagination” and “having no original ideas.” The Beatles were rejected by Decca Recording Studios, who said “We don’t like their sound, they have no future in show business.” Albert Einstein’s school teachers believed he was mentally slow and said “He would never amount to much.” These beliefs came to be by the self imposed ideas while simultaneously being preoccupied with a limited reality within their own minds. The eyes and ears cannot see or hear what the mind is not ready to understand. Would you be able to recognize greatness if it was standing beside you?
The story below, written by Josh Nonnenmoc, is another great example on this topic.
“A man sat at a metro station in Washington DC and started to play the violin; it was a cold January morning. He played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time, since it was rush hour, it was calculated that 1,100 people went through the station, most of them on their way to work.
Three minutes went by, and a middle aged man noticed there was musician playing. He slowed his pace, and stopped for a few seconds, and then hurried up to meet his schedule.
A minute later, the violinist received his first dollar tip: a woman threw the money in the till and without stopping, and continued to walk.
A few minutes later, someone leaned against the wall to listen to him, but the man looked at his watch and started to walk again. Clearly he was late for work.
The one who paid the most attention was a 3 year old boy. His mother tagged him along, hurried, but the kid stopped to look at the violinist. Finally, the mother pushed hard, and the child continued to walk, turning his head all the time. This action was repeated by several other children. All the parents, without exception, forced them to move on.
In the 45 minutes the musician played, only 6 people stopped and stayed for a while. About 20 gave him money, but continued to walk their normal pace. He collected $32. When he finished playing and silence took over, no one noticed it. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition.
No one knew this, but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the most talented musicians in the world. He had just played one of the most intricate pieces ever written, on a violin worth $3.5 million dollars.
Two days before his playing in the subway, Joshua Bell sold out at a theater in Boston where the seats averaged $100.
This is a real story. Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was organized by the Washington Post as part of a social experiment about perception, taste, and priorities of people. The outlines were: in a commonplace environment at an inappropriate hour: Do we perceive beauty? Do we stop to appreciate it? Do we recognize the talent in an unexpected context?
One of the possible conclusions from this experience could be:
If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world playing the best music ever written, how many other things are we missing?”
“There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.” ~Aldous Huxley
“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” ~Gandhi
There are two ways of viewing forgiveness, and it requires the utmost truthfulness and honesty within ourselves. For example, it is easier to forgive others for being wrong, than to forgive them for being right. Forgiveness is about the acceptance of conditions for what they are. It is the release of any attachments of the past or expectations of the future. As expectations are the beginning of all resentments. Forgiveness is not merely an act of words, of speaking ‘forgiveness’ but it’s an internal act of choosing to release others and yourself. Forgiveness is what ends the vicious cycle of karma. For as long as we fight or ignore ‘what is’ we’ll never learn to forgive and much less ever learn the true meaning of love. Forgiveness is what tells the infinite mind, also known as God, that you have learned your life’s lesson through your inner being, also known as your soul. Many times, our pride and self-deceit of the ego, and the self image of being a victim are what prevent many from forgiving or being forgiven. Unforgivingness is what creates indifference and separation, as forgiveness has nothing to do with dismissing another for his mistakes. It has everything to do with relieving oneself of the affliction of being a victim. If you cannot forgive, you are living in an illusion created by your mind, which is called the ‘past’ and no longer exists in this reality that we call ‘now.’ It only exists within your mind, while infecting your heart. So where is the enemy? Is it that person that failed you? Or an incident of the past? Or is your enemy simply an aspect of your own thinking? Without forgiveness we become prisoners of our own ideas.
“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and to realize that the prisoner was you.” ~Lewis B. Smedes
Many search the world for love, but if they have not learned to forgive they will never find love or peace within their hearts. We are human, and by human nature we make mistakes, we live in a universe that is perfectly imperfect. And we are merely a microcosmic replica of our perfectly imperfect universe. If everything were perfect, nothing would ever change. Mistakes are an essential ingredient to the learning process. They are for the purpose of our own growth and evolution. Forgiveness is essential to the recognition that we have learned. Forgiveness is how we speak without words with divinity or God.
“To err is human, to forgive, devine.” ~Alexander Pope
We are here incarnated to learn forgiveness, to be kind, and to be honest. We are here to find happiness, to do good, and to do the best we can. I ask you to look within yourself and forgive yourself of your own thinking so that we may forgive others. How can you ever love if you have not learned to forgive? As said by Mother Teresa:
“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
“Judge nothing, you will be happy. Forgive everything you will be happier. Love everything, you will be happiest.” ~Sri Chinmoy
The German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer once said,
“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”
Our world is in a similar situation within the first and second stage of truth. Inner truth is either ridiculed, ignored, denied or violently opposed. The neurotic will fight harder to protect its condition. It will ridicule, ignore, deny and oppose that which has been placed before him physically to be conquered within. Many will fight physically and try to bring that which exists in their physical world into the submission of their will. Once they achieve their goals they still remain unhappy, and continue to search outwardly destroying everything like a black hole devouring everything within its path. The neurosis persists and continues due to the failure to search within.
“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” ~Albert Einstein
We must learn to face the internal conflict of both entities that exists within each and every one of us. The most dangerous combination is a unconscious neurotic ego. That is what causes division and indifference within the world and within each other. This is the crisis of consciousness, not a crisis of religions, politics, wars, money or useless distractions. These are all merely reflections of our inner consciousness, not the other way around. The only reason the lies continue is because we continue to participate with the deception within ourselves. Many falsely think that benevolent actions and positive thinking is the solution to our problems. If it was a solution we would have been out of the age of darkness long ago. When you have truly searched within yourself you will have found the same truth that was within Jesus, Buddha and Muhammad. Then and only then will the world know the third stage of truth, acceptance and surrender to the real truth that is only found within.
“I have frequently seen people become neurotic when they content themselves with inadequate or wrong answers to the questions of life. They seek position, marriage, reputation, outward success of money, and remain unhappy and neurotic even when they have attained what they were seeking. Such people are usually confined within too narrow a spiritual horizon. Their inner life has not sufficient content, sufficient meaning. If they are enabled to develop into more spacious personalities, the neurosis generally disappears.” ~Carl Gustav Jung
“The revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall.” ~Che Guevara
There is a shadow society that controls and manipulates the world, this elusive society is known as the Illuminati. It exists like a ghost, it is there but you cannot see it. It is around you like a deception. It is difficult to recognize because the deception is what we have known as the truth.
“Those who are able to see beyond the shadows and lies of their culture will never be understood, let alone believed by the masses.” ~Plato
There are those who say you can’t beat the system and in a sense they are right. It is this belief that produces tyrants and oppression within the machine, but those people have also failed to realize that this machine can and will be torn down from within. This is not a physical revolution but a revolution of consciousness that can only be led with love and understanding. The collective consciousness of the masses has been manipulated for the creation and the greed of the few. The few within the Illuminati understand the matrix and nature of reality and use deception and distraction to keep the masses from awakening to the truth that can only be found within you. When the masses have finally awaken, we will have our apocalypse. Not an apocalypse as falsely understood by many as the end of the world. The word apocalypse is derived from the greek word ‘apocalypsis,’ which means to reveal, lifting of the veil, remove the blindfold or as known in the bible as Revelations. This truth is the same in me as it is in you, as it was within Jesus, Buddha and Muhammad. When they say that Jesus died on the cross for your soul, Jesus died awakening the masses to your soul, to bring people to the realization that God is found within you.
“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange you put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.” ~Jim Morrison
“God is an infinite circle whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere.” ~Nicolas of Cusa
An atom is a microcosm of a minute solar system, in which our planet is a macrocosm of an electron revolving around its center. The electron which is the main ingredient to the source of all creation that permeates our infinite universe. The video below that features George Carlin and Bill Hicks was shared by Pepe Aguilar, and I wanted to share with you.
“A young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves.” ~Bill Hicks
“Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you: Jesus Christ and the American Soldier. One died for your soul, the other died for your freedom.” ~Unknown
Now let’s set the record straight, there is no argument over the choice between peace and war, but there is only one guaranteed way you can have peace, and you can have it in the next second. Surrender.
Admittedly there’s a risk at any course we follow other than this, but every lesson of history tells us that the greater risk lies in appeasement, and this is the specter our well-meaning liberal friends refuse to face. That their policy of accommodation, is appeasement. And it gives no choice between peace and war. Only between fight or surrender.
If we continue to accommodate, continue to back and retreat, eventually we have to face the final demand, the ultimatum. And what then? When Nikita Khrushchev has told his people he knows what our answer will be, he has told them that we are retreating under the pressure of the Cold War, and someday when the time comes to deliver the final ultimatum, our surrender will be voluntary. Because by that time, we will have weakened from within spiritually, morally, and economically. He believes this because from our side he’s heard voices pleading for “peace at any price” or “better red than dead,” or as one commentator put it, he would rather “live on his knees than die on his feet.” And therein lies the road to war, because those voices don’t speak for the rest of us. You and I know and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery. If nothing in life is worth dying for, when did this begin? Just in the face of this enemy? Or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs? Should Christ have refused the cross? Should the patriots at Concord Bridge have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the shot heard around the world? The martyrs of history were not fools, and our honored dead who gave their lives to stop the advance of the Nazis didn’t die in vain. Where, then, is the road to peace? Well, it’s a simple answer after all.
You and I have the courage to say to our enemies, “there is a price we will not pay.” There is a point beyond which they must not advance. Winston Churchill said that “the destiny of man is not measured by material computation. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we are spirits not animals.” He said, “There is something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty.”
“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.” ~Ronald Reagan
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.” ~General, George S. Patton
Veterans Day is on November 11th and is a day set aside to honor and thank all American veterans living and dead. It is the day designated to show appreciation for the sacrifices many have made to keep the people of the United States and other countries around the world free. There is an inborn characteristic of the U.S. serviceman and that quality is the selfless desire to serve his country, something that is not commonly found within the common man.
“The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.” ~G.K. Chesterton
This is especially dedicated to the men of the infantry because it is the infantry that is the true force of the U.S. military. The infantry is the tip of the spear, the boots on the ground. It is a brotherhood of men that bleed and sweat together and do what very few are willing or capable of doing, but once on the ground they don’t do it because of hate of the enemy or the love of their country, they do it for the love of the men that is next to him.
“The soldier above all prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.” ~General MacArthur
The infantry is the first into battle and the last to leave. They are the ones on the front lines of war, the ones who hold the ground, the ones who go through hell so you don’t have to. War is not a good thing but we don’t create wars. We allow them to happen by not actively creating peace in the world and within our consciousness. Many choose to be ignorant to this fact, but ignorance is not innocence, nor is it bliss. Our own ignorance is the cause of our own misery that the infantryman must endure. The American soldier wants peace but not at the price of freedom, justice or fairness. If we allow when we should act we become martyrs, if we act when we should allow we become tyrants, and it is the soldier that has to balance between the two. It is the true warrior that seeks peace, but is not afraid of a fight to stand for something beyond himself, which is called duty.
“To be a warrior is not a simple matter of wishing to be one. It is rather an endless struggle that will go on to the very last moment of our lives. Nobody is born a warrior, in exactly the same way that nobody is born an average man. We make ourselves into one or the other.” ~Carlos Castaneda
Please watch the inspirational video below.
“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” ~John 15:13
“A neurosis is a secret you don’t know you’re keeping.” ~Kenneth Tynan
In today’s society people don’t want to see the the evil that is within each and one of us because that would imply that there is a dark side to our psyche. People do want to face the reality of our nature and due to this fact they have become disconnected from their true inner self and have confused the true inner self with the false self also known as the ego. People have become distracted so much by the physical material world that they have no time for the inner world. For that reason, they become lost and that results in a neurotic society. It is a society that is not even aware of its psychoanalytic condition. In other words, people are insane and don’t even know it. The world is a reflection of our inner world. So how can many say that they are not insane? It is only the truly insane who believe they are not crazy. Who are you? Do you know who you are?
“Every neurosis has the result, and therefore the purpose, of forcing out of real life, of alienating him from actuality.” ~Sigmund Freud
We are not meant to oppose or ignore the evil that is within us. Opposing and ignoring our inner self has resulted in the reality we experience today in the world. If you falsely believe that we must fight and rid ourselves of the shadow within us, we will have engaged in an interior conflict that will never be resolved. We are supposed to embrace and understand both the good and evil within us. Split positive thinking and believing only in the good will create an unbalanced psyche. We must find the power within us to keep these two opposite entities to live together in harmony within ourselves. If we don’t, then we must face our own inevitable destruction.
To be continued…
“Neurosis is the suffering of a soul which has not discovered its meaning.” ~Carl Gustav Jung
“Many people suffer from the fear of finding oneself alone, and so they don’t find themselves at all.” ~Rollo May
Who are you? What defines you? Is it your ideas? Your possessions? Your career? Are you defined by your surroundings or the people in your life? Are you your name or your ego? The fact is that none of these things would exist without the real you, the real you which is the being that is within you, that is aware of itself, but somehow many are not aware of it. Many have forgotten what the true self is and lost awareness of the true self through unconscious accepted influences from family and society. Are you the true self or the shadow self? The shadow self is also known as the ego. Would you recognize it if you see it within you? And if you did recognize the higher and lower self would you know what to do with it? If you only believe in the true self, this may also be a trick from the shadow that is within you. If you believe that the higher self must shine through and that the shadow does not exist, this within itself gives validity to the shadow within you. In short, when you believe that you are only good and positive, that does not mean that you’re good and positive. It only means that you haven’t identified the shadow within you and if you have, you haven’t had the courage to face the false you and much less the courage to understand it In this case, understand means love. This way of split positive thinking only provokes the problems we see on earth. Split positive thinking is the example of when the wrong man uses the right means in the wrong way. How can you ever do what is right, when you can’t even recognize what is wrong? Just like many can’t even face the darkness that is within themselves? As Meister Eckhart said,
“It is in the darkness that one finds the light.”
If you falsely believe that we must fight and rid ourselves of the shadow within us, we will have engaged in an interior conflict which will never be resolved. This is the example of neurosis. The true higher self is within you, you either know it or you don’t! If you knew how to choose, you wouldn’t have to. If you do happen to know your true inner you, the shadow will cease to be a problem, it will reveal itself for what it is, ‘a shadow’ and you don’t go around chasing your own shadow or try to hit it with a stick or control it with a leash. You simply walk through it or over it like a mirage but you understand that it will always be there with you. The path to enlightenment is a lonely one, you don’t do it in churches, in groups, religions or relationships, you only do it alone in relationship with yourself.
“In the end everyone stands alone, and the important thing is who it is that stands alone.” ~Arthur Schopenhauer
