The Artificiality of Social Reality

Beyond the Veil

“There is darkness…then there is light.”

Plight of the Afterlife

Centuries of extraordinary experiences have been documented about what we encounter when our soul leaves our body.  All who witness these events are empowered to recall their journey.  Yet, their personal revelations are often met with social anxiety, denial, dismissal, doubt, fear, insecurity and ridicule.  For the experienced few, these encounters are more real than reality itself, regardless of public reaction.  Many eagerly refute their remarkable experiences in a quest to discredit and scrutinize all that is contrary to the dogmas in which they are conditioned, or the artificial reality in which we are enslaved.     

Experience to Remember

For over 30 years I have had these encounters.  They are distinct from being awake or asleep.  In my experience, it takes over 45 minutes for me to have lucid dreams, feedback from my mind releasing the past, daily events and unnecessary thought forms.  As we drift off to sleep, something happens to us which transcends the REM dream state.  The residual impacts of our conditioning and programming constantly impose their influence and deaden our senses.  Yet, what happens in that window between awareness and slumber?  And why do we fail to remember?       

The Fire of Youth

As children, we can.  We experience these encounters to their fullest, yet we lack the capacity to articulate, retain, apply and understand them.  Eventually, the conditioning and programming of social reality compromises and diminishes our intuitive acumen and awareness.  In addition, our exposure to ordinary life destroys our creativity and consciousness, severing our relatedness with the universe.  The virtuality in which we exist is designed to stimulate and preoccupy our instincts and intellect, scramble our emotional being, disrupt our connection with our intuition and separate us from our soul. 

The Age of Truth

As adults, we gradually surrender our intuition and evade our emotions.  We are addicted and obsessed with the artificiality of society.  Our social environment is not sustainable to nurture multidimensionality.  However, we have the potential and possibility to experience what exists beyond three-dimensional reality.  It requires observation, focus, balance, intention, expression and being to align and relate with our soul and the universe.  This is the essential equilibrium between our intuition, emotion, intellect and instinct, to ground and center ourselves into the resonance of universal experience.    

“We experience only a fraction of the universe.”

The Grand Illusion

Experience, relation and understanding begins with observing, accepting and transcending the greatest lie ever invented.  “Reality” is real.  None of this is real, at least in the way we are led to believe.  It is a simulated illusion. We are born, conditioned, developed and trained to exist similar to a computer program.  We interpret it as real because we are seemingly experiencing its commonalities within the paradigm of social reality.  Yet, our engagement and investment in this societal matrix is the very energy enabling its existence.  In essence, our life force is highjacked and manipulated by the few to enslave the many.

Sacred Space

All life empowered by the universe requires personal space for conception, evolution, existence, expression and being.  For us to receive the energy of universality, we need to constantly align, center, ground, express and transform ourselves.  There are energetic ebbs and flows in the universe, as there are personal shifts we must frequently experience to fulfill on our destiny.  This involves our unique investment in creating, establishing and maintaining our sacred space, a personal energetic environment to cultivate our relatedness with our soul and the universe.  This is our true purpose on Earth.

Who Feels It Becomes It

Our lives are lived through our perceptions.  Yet, this is merely a figment of social reality.  The personal power we acquiesce to our instinct and intellect imprisons us into the linear existence of duality.  The body and mind are the dominating elements of our being, often overpowering our heart, intuition and soul.  Each one of us emanates the energy to be creative, conscious, empowered, enlightened, intuitive and transcendent.  Our choice to be all that we are expresses a universal shift relative to the birth of a star.  The torus of energy in our heart center is the gateway for our soul to express universality into social reality. 

The Soul Journey

The essential experience we all encounter in the moments between being awake and asleep is when our soul travels.  It leaves our body and mind to journey beyond the electromagnetic barrier of the Earth’s atmosphere and known human existence.  When we cross this threshold, we leave behind everything of this world to embody multidimensionality.  However, when we return through this boundary to our body, we forget everything we experience while our spirit explores the universe.  Our instincts and intellect are unable to comprehend our soul’s journey.  Therefore, we are incapable of universal recall.   

“Our energetic resonance is our universal signature.”

Are You Experienced?

It has taken me over thirty years of experiences to accept, remember, translate, integrate and understand their nature and purpose.  They transpire in various ways with infinite possibilities and outcomes.  Every time I return, there is an electromagnetic resonance throughout my being, in my body, mind, heart and intuition.  I feel these are the remnants of universality empowering me with its multidimensional impression.  This essential energy is received and synthesized with my personal consciousness, evolution and transformation.

Beyond the Veil

For the first time in three decades, I consciously experienced this transcendental shift.  I was sequestered in a sacred space for days without food, water and, for the most part, light.  At some point, I was able to transcend the boundaries and inclinations of my body and mind and cross the threshold into universal being.  In this experience, I saw light in the darkness, heard sound in the silence, found clarity in the chaos and felt who I am and how I exist beyond my personal perception.  I recalled where I travelled and the experience of progressively shifting and returning to my body.   

Soul Return Experience

One reason we cannot remember when our soul travels is due to the intense process of re-integrating into our body and mind.  In spirit, we are related with the universe as a multidimensional expression of energy.  The best word to illustrate this is “universality.”  When we return from our experience, the progression from being one with essence to existing in a three-dimensional reality with a two-dimensional existence is equivalent to condensing an ocean into a stream.  This “reality” we adopt and emulate is the dream.  We simply fail to nurture the necessary, energetic containment and expression to empower and inspire universality.

Afterglow

Reintegrating into social reality is not the most challenging experience when our soul journeys beyond the veil.  It is the return to our self and who we have become that presents the greatest adversity.  In my recent encounter, I recalled most of my experience, yet little of who I had been.  Though I have become accustomed to these energetic shifts, I am not fully present to or related with the person I am now.  I am in transition.  As mentioned in previous articles, I am not inspired to simply know about these explorations.  Knowing is an interpretation based on instinct and intellect.  I am empowered by the experience of understanding my soul’s relation and resonance with the universe.     

“Our soul is a sacred space of the universe.”

Self Portrait

“I don’t write articles, they write me.”

All the Words Combine

I have been publishing articles on this and other websites for over ten years.  It was brought to my attention years ago many of the articles I post are translated into different languages. This is the greatest compliment.  I have even had opportunities to be interviewed by akin-spirited people intending to make a difference.  I am empowered by the expanding community I discover and encounter with every article I write.  Yet, there is something missing in my experience, and perhaps those of others.  A transcendent relativity to equal the articles’ purpose.

Truth into Illusion

One observation I have made is the limited understanding, dialogue and application of the social awareness and listening into which I write.  I will be the first to acknowledge the complexities and intricacies of the subject matter and vernacular I often choose, and the arrogance and pretentious tones my expression may convey.  Perhaps I have lost the attention and interest of readers in the process.  It is what it is, in a social reality rife with predominately negative images and information broadcast like advertisements for oblivious consumption.  Perhaps what I write about may occur as offensive to many, as much as the mainstream media is to me.

Against the Grain

All who intend to express the truth they resonate with, into an artificial, callous and immoral society always face the greatest adversity, criticism, judgement and ridicule.  Humanity is and perhaps has always been inverted and regressive in nature.  The masses tend to lash out at those who stand for the truth and praise those who manipulate perception.  At no time in my fifty years of life have I felt this to the gravest degree than over the last few years.  When I offered an alternative or diverse perspective on what has been happening in contemporary society, I encountered social anger, blame, condemnation, shame and vitriol, losing acquaintances and friends along the way.

Defying Gravity

I am grateful to be a part of communities who accept and understand me for who I am and who I am not.  When the gravity of society imposes its weight upon us, we usually dance and laugh our way through with conscious abandon.  This is essential in a chaotic and challenging age.  The window to awareness seems to be narrowing for many.  Being an expression of the universe in an artificial world is a daunting endeavor.  When the tides of humanity are ebbing toward madness and mayhem, our purpose is to flow with acceptance, balance, compassion, consciousness, equality, love and transformation.

“For the energy of the universe.”

Media Manipulation

Over the last decade, I have observed the declining state of journalism spiral into dis-, mis- and no information, social exploitation and partisan opinion.  Authors, bloggers and columnists spar for expanded readership at the cost of their personal and professional authenticity, integrity and veracity.  Even to the extent of arguing over nuance in a blind quest to be first, renown and right.  The impacts to their audiences have been devastating.  It is one thing to bend reality to benefit one’s career or company.  Something entirely different to abuse the attention, reliance and trust readers have in an author or publication for the purposes of prestige and profit.         

Selective Perception

I understand and accept the design of social reality, even when it has no acknowledgement or regard for the truth.  I do not need to accredit, compel or solidify what I experience for it to exist for others.  That is up to them to choose to discover for themselves, or not.  I understand humanity is primarily conditioned and programmed into authoritarian-driven narratives, engineered to provide a social environment of artificial belonging.  In which people have the platform to defend their insecurities behind the institutions of education, lifestyle, politics and religion.  To the majority, it often seems easier to abide in fear than embrace love.

Ceiling of Consciousness

When I wrote on topics like consciousness, creativity, imagination, multidimensionality, transformation and universality, I used to wonder why there was a lack of response from the world wide web.  Why proactive and positive expressions were excluded into non-existence in a society addicted to vicious cycles of negative and regressive repetition.  Even why there was a social dependence on toxicity.  Then it occurred to me, emulation has highjacked our opportunity for creation.  We are artificial beings enslaved in a digital simulation, reacting to social stimuli projected into our existence. 

All in Resonance

Every article I compose is inspired by what resonates with me in the moment.  The writing process is intuitively guided.  Even the editing and revision methods are empowered by insight.  When they are published, they are as universally expressed as humanly possible.  One of the only unfortunate elements in the progression of an article is attempting to convey in words all that is beyond instinctual and intellectual understanding.  Yet, the opportunity to hone my ability for universal expression supersedes the inevitability that most of the universality is lost once they are completed.  The energy between the lines is essential.

Universal Expression

What I choose to write about may not mean much to most if anything at all.  If it did, there would be more of a watermark in the world when the tides of the articles recede.  I have never had an intention for profit or recognition from what I publish.  The website is free to all who choose to visit.  I do not benefit, except for exposure from my articles being published on other websites or for interviews in which I participate.  This is my commitment to the universe for sharing its creativity, empowerment, energy, insight and understanding with me.  I am only an expression of its presence through my experience.

“Empowering and inspiring community through creativity.”

From Vision to Being

“Many may know, few will understand.”

Traditional Medicinal

For over 20 years, I have participated in ceremonial community.  When I reflect on my experiences, one of the greatest insights I have had is that they are not “mine.”  My interpretation of them is irrelevant.  Even their benefit and the roles that have come to me from my commitments are insignificant.  Another epiphany I had and continue to express to the best of my ability, is being of service to community.  I simply hold a space for others to have their experience, however it may manifest, without attachment, control, expectation and influence.  It takes everything from me to be true to the tradition and express who I am called to be.  When one gives all and becomes nothing, it creates opportunity for everything.

The Human Gene

One of the most heartbreaking experiences I have witnessed on this path is observing when participants fall victim to their ego.  It is a delicate and intricate balance to maintain an equilibrium between the prayer we make, and the society in which we live.  Many falter in their pursuits to gain personal advancement, power, recognition and status at the cost of their experience and those of the people whom they desire to lead.  It is more about manipulation and less about tradition.  Many interpret leadership as the quantity of their followers and the control they impose, rather than their service to community.  It becomes dangerous when they are insensitive or oblivious to the impacts their personal agendas and strategies cause.

“Spiritualized”

Whenever a tradition becomes congregational or institutionalized, it is only a matter of time before it manifests as social dysfunction, harm, oppression and destruction.  Last year, I published “Spiritualized: The Ego of Spirituality.”  It expresses clarity into the influence and impact our egos have on our experience and those of others.  Many forms of religion have established, enacted and profited by controlling and manipulating parishioners into fear, guilt, obligation and uncertainty to uphold their authority over the many.  The propaganda they proselytize is a scheme to prohibit the individual soul-intimation experience.  Personal discernment and distinction are vital in creating and preserving our alignment with the universe.

Invention of Programming

All of us are indoctrinated into institutional structures of selective reality.  Long before we learn to express consciousness and conscience, we are programmed to emulate a common, condensed interpretation of all with which we identify and relate.  This is a social control technique to maintain our enslavement.  Most “intelligent” people are cast into a vicious cycle of existence.  They choose not to acknowledge the truth that they are imprisoned by their ego with their own denial, doubt, fear and self-righteousness.  We have been conditioned by education, mainstream media, religion and society to be right instead of true to our experience.  This is what motivates people who believe themselves to be leaders to control others.

“Knowing is an invention of the mind.  Understanding is an expression of the soul.”

Knowing and Understanding

Knowing tethers us to thought.  Understanding inspires us to be. I would not choose to “know” anything.  In my opinion, knowing is too intellectual.  Just facts and figures ricocheting in my mind.  Knowing is a diversion from observing, understanding and applying what I experience into who I am.  Social reality imposes the duality of thought and action into our lifestyles.  We are energetic beings with multidimensional potentialities.  Our heart and intuition relate us with our soul and the universe.  Knowing is merely a fraction of our experience in the universality of our existence.  Understanding empowers us to align our body and mind with our heart, intuition, soul and the universe. 

Focus of Vision

Epiphanies and insights are occurring in every moment of our present.  When we happen upon them, they occur to us as fleeting glimpses, existing beyond our purview.  We simply do not dedicate the necessary focus to cultivate our experience.  We must express a purpose of awareness and observation to create a sustainable environment in which our consciousness resonates with the frequency of our vision.  My initiation into this experience was terrifying, as it was so diverse from the reality in which I had been indoctrinated.  It annihilated my adolescent belief, perception, thought and understanding.  After I found my balance amidst the fluctuating currents of my experiences, I grew accustomed to the shifts and eventually chose to flow with them.

Observation of Experience

Our experiences are only as conscious as we live them.  We exist in a social reality that imposes oblivion as a control mechanism.  Our focus of vision kindles our observation to hone our awareness and its expression.  Though we are programmed to exercise acuity through a filter of a selfishness, being present to the circumstances and events transpiring around us empowers us to establish how they exist within.  Eventually, we create the opportunity to transform ourselves, our existence and our perception of reality.  Our observation is the expression of our relativity with the present.  The current challenges of the new era are an ideal opportunity to shift and align with the universe and our soul, guided by our intuition, while being conscious of our heart, mind and body.

Expression of Being

In no other tradition have I experienced such an extraordinary symmetry between the personal and community experience.  When balance is established, one can have their individual discoveries within the circle.  Whether or not this happens is empowered by our unique expression of being.  When the shared focus is for the benefit of the people, personal transformation is possible.  It simply requires us to shift our focus from our self alone to the needs of all.  Being willing to release the social conditioning of our selfishness empowers us to be proactively empowered by community consciousness.  When we choose to embody this way of being, our personal and collective visions manifest.     

Full Circle

One insight I would share with those at the crossroads of their soul; be present to your ego and its influence, or you will never have a spiritual experience.” (“Spiritualized: The Ego of Spirituality.”)  The primary element to our social programming is believing and engaging in linear reality.  Personal transformation is a multidimensional encounter with infinite facets of vision, observation, experience, expression and being.  The optimal way to discover who, how and why we are is our relativity within community.  We sacrifice our greatest potential with our social obsessions for selfish inclinations. Community offers us the opportunity to create ourselves with our commitment to all our relations.

“Unity is the soul of community” – (“Spiritualized: The Ego of Spirituality.”)

“Community is our commitment to unity.”

The Consequence of Consciousness

“We are an imitation of our original being.”

The Art of Deprogramming

Our choices, experiences, identities and perceptions are hacked well before we become aware.  Some may opt to debunk this observation, defending their virtual enslavement instead of being with its truth.  It is our conditioning that defines the selective reality we adopt, enabling our self-gratification and establishing our artificial freedom.  None of us are immune to these social influences.  Our assimilation into the digital matrix is inevitable. Until we observe our individual captivity, experience our personal universality and transform the dynamics of our being, we will always be victims of duality. 

The Dream Life

We are born, grow up, go to school, church, onto university, find a career, date, get married, buy a house and a car or two, have children, take vacations, mark time, retire, decline into old age and die.  This is the probable future for humanity.  It is our common fate. An obligatory rite of passage to sustain a system of authority, control, influence and societal slavery.  Our unbridled ego becomes our weapon, impelling us to live isolated from our soul and the universe.  We have allowed ourselves to be programmed, proudly bearing the badge of social reality in the bliss of its oblivion.  We measure our lives by the accumulation of materiality instead of the fulfillment of our universality.       

A Perfect Crime

Social reality is a construct of co-dependency, breeding simulations of advancement, conformity, programming, reliance and triviality.  We surrender our personal power to authoritarian organizations for fear of being accountable and honest.  Elitist oppressors exploit our deficiencies against us.  We amuse, distract and preoccupy ourselves with avoidance, cynicism, indifference and resignation, fortifying our personal prison.  This racket is more insidious than any autocratic system in society.  It is our self-induced captivity that sentences us to social reality.  

The “Woke” Epidemic

In this new era of awareness, it is easy to be manipulated by the influential tides of false consciousness. Society is littered with the kaleidoscopic pantheon of contemporary “wokeness.”  Reactive instinct, interpretive intellectualism and volatile emotionality enables and establishes our artificial lifestyle and understanding.  Mass emulation triggers our vicious cycles of emotional, perceptual and sensual fantasy.  Many of us mistake intelligence with awareness when we allow society to highjack our personal truth.  Our unique expression is not found from without.  It is sourced only from within.

“Our soul is the cost for defying our consciousness.”

Cornerstone of Truth

Each of us has a destiny to become an expression of universal energy, originating from the synthesis of our soul with the universe.  The source of our being resonates with our intuition, empowers our heart center and inspires our mind and body.  It transforms our experience, perception and understanding.  Our truth is not established with our belief, education, ideology, knowledge, politics or religion.  It transcends all social mechanisms, manifesting in our way of being.  The universe is unbiased in nature, expressing itself through us when we choose to transcend social reality. 

Water to the Fish    

Our indoctrination into the “reality” of life is absolute.  No matter how aware we perceive ourselves to be with our instinct, intellect and emotion, the social bubbles we build are the barriers of our captivity.  Our oblivion is the invisible gravity we sense, confining us into a three-dimensional construct of existence.  We acquiesce our personal power as a daily practice to avoid the shocking truth.  We would rather be enslaved in a simulation than pioneer the path to our destiny.  Even to the degree we defend the egocentric honor of our intelligence, pride and self-righteousness, dismissing every opportunity to experience freedom of being.

A Solitary Way

When I became present to my personal truth, I realized how lonely it can be.  At first, I envisioned it through a filter of my ego.  Eventually, I shifted my experience with service to community.  This is greater than who I believe myself to be.  I grew accustomed to accepting myself for who I was and who I was not, and extended others the same courtesy.  Releasing my attachment to outcomes empowered me to embrace all I was, am and would become.  There is an extraordinary freedom in being ourselves and honoring others in theirs.  Being related with our soul and the universe is our destined purpose.

An Essential Choice

In this new era of empowered being, the choice most of us avoid every day of our lives is now a necessity.  Consciousness is always available to us.  Choosing anything but awareness is proving to have dire consequences.  Whether it relates to our personal experience, evolution, freedom, health and quality of life.  Social reality distorts and destroys our relationship with our soul and the universe.  Understanding this dynamic is our focus to enrich and empower our relations with others, yet most importantly with ourselves.  Consciousness is universal energy that transforms oblivion into being. 

Consciousness and Consequence

In my early twenties, I was arrogant and ignorant.  I perceived the universe as a vast, empty space of darkness.  This was symbolic of how I lived at the time.  I was a social vortex of ego, satiating myself in every possible way.  Social reality anesthetizes us to the impacts of our personal oblivion. For every unconscious endeavor there is a consequence to our universality. When I observed my experience with an equilibrium of my senses, thoughts, feelings and intuition, I began having insights that related me with my soul.  Our soul is our expression of universal consciousness, transforming the experience of life for all.

“The consequence of consciousness is universal being.”

Are We Experienced?

“Perception is the deceiver of experience.”

We believe, hear and see only what we desire.  It is human entitlement to gratify our wants instead of satisfy our needs.  Life is perceived through a filter of our selective reality.  Therefore, we are merely surviving instead of thriving.  It is impossible to fulfill our experience when we build a personal fortress of imaginary interpretation, perception and understanding around us.  We rarely “experience” life, we simply surrender to the constant oppression of social reality.  For example, we react with oblivion instead of proact with creation.  The distinction between perception and experience is consciousness.      

The Perception Deception

The proverbial wool is pulled over our eyes well before we begin to develop our personal acumen for diverse and transcendent understanding.  Institutional “intelligence” via education, media, politics and religion processes our experience into perceptual duality.  Entertainment, economics, information, social media, sports and world events enable the common illusion we all accept and apply.  Our minds are preoccupied with authoritarian programming, while we congratulate ourselves for our social mimicry and reiteration.  We deceive ourselves with virtuality to avoid being with the truth.  We allow ourselves to be conditioned as projections of artificial intelligence.    

Once Upon a Time

Social reality is a fairy tale written by royalty and sustained by peasants.  This is an excruciating observation and realization.  When I became aware of its actors, storyline and endgame, I was angry, apathetic, hopeless and resigned.  As I awakened, I became empowered and inspired by the possibility reality’s antiquated plot could be transformed.  However, I realized the greatest obstruction to this transformation was my own social conditioning and programmed perception.  There are billions of emulations of interpretation enslaving humanity into the digital matrix of reality.  Within its paradigm, we are captive to our ego, oblivion and self-righteousness.

The Silent Surrender

Perception is developed when what is without becomes who is within.  This is the imposition of social reality.  Most of us inevitably acquiesce to dysfunctional behaviors, habits, impulses and thoughts because we are not empowered or inspired to fulfill our personal destiny.  Well before adolescence, we are lured away from who we truly are and may become.  We submit to and establish our ego as the core of our identity.  As we engage and integrate with the simulation of society, we give all our possibility and power to our ego. This severs our relations with our soul and the universe. 

“Perception is what we adopt.  Experience is how we create.”

Origin of Experience

One of my most innovative introductions into experience was when I took hallucinogens in High School.  It expanded my vision, creativity, expression, perception and understanding in ways I would have never imagined.  I remember returning from these extraordinary journeys wondering why so many people chose to define and perceive themselves within the narrow parameters of reality.  It opened a doorway to my experience with “universality;” the multidimensionality of being relating us with everything that ever was, is and will be.  Though I have not partaken since, I acknowledge and appreciate the benefits they inspired in my awareness, creativity, expression, imagination and relativity.   

Beyond the Rainbow

When I was 18, I had an encounter that transformed my vision from perception to experience. (Ref. the article “A History of Mystery.”)  For over 30 years, I have continued to have these extraordinary, multidimensional journeys.  Some are amazing and enlightening, some dangerous and terrifying, while others are cryptic and profound.  These experiences gradually shifted my perception, eventually empowering my existence, insight and understanding.  The intention and practice of personal observation allows us to transcend our enslavement to duality.  Beyond our reflection is the focal point of our awareness and the origin of our consciousness.

From Empowerment to Energy

Social reality does not empower or inspire us.  It takes all we are willing to give, refining it into a dense energy to sustain the artificiality of society.  We are eager to accept this as “reality” because we dismiss and neglect our common destiny of creative expression.  When we choose to observe, envision, focus and intend our unique purpose, we receive an abundance of energy from the universe.  As we exercise our legacy of being, we connect and relate with its flow.  Eventually, we occupy this space within ourselves, becoming the expression of our soul.   

Symmetry of Experience

Occasionally, we have epiphanies and insights to kindle our authenticity, creativity, possibility and transformation.  It is not our perceptions; it is our experiences that inspire us to relate and resonate with our being.  The universe empowers vision upon our soul, expressing it through our intuition and heart center, into our mind and body.  This exchange happens more often than we consciously acknowledge.  However, the primal desires of our thoughts and senses distort and manipulate them into perceptions.  Experiencing them to the fullest involves the alignment and balance of our body, mind and heart with our intuition, soul and the universe.

The Dawn of Being

For centuries, we have exalted and prided ourselves on human doing instead of human being.  The daily watermark of our worth is valued by monetary prosperity.  Being has become “spiritualized.” (Ref. the article “Spiritualized: The Ego of Spirituality.”)  It intrigues us.  Yet, when it comes to fulfilling a daily intention, we often preoccupy ourselves with mindless and heartless endeavors.  We are in an extraordinary era of enlightenment, evolution and transcendence. One humanity has never encountered.  This dawn of being is an opportunity to transform our focus from the perceptions we emulate to the experiences we become.

“Experience is our relativity with being.”

Video Interview with Lorenzo Malowane of “The New Agora” presented by “The New Now.”

“Love is an experience of being related.”

Being the Love We Are

We all need to be loved, even when we are not being loving to ourselves or others.  One of the most challenging aspects in practicing love is our ability to see how often we are not loving ourselves.  When we neglect to grant ourselves this necessity, we cannot express it towards others.  Our self-loathing compromises our genuine ability to share love with all.  My experience with loving is accepting others for who they are and who they are not.  Authentic relativity is observing the uniqueness each of us offer and understanding the blessing it brings to the world. 

The Universality of Love

Most often in society, love is as an instinctual desire.  It is often misinterpreted and misrepresented as sexual attraction.  Once this itch is scratched, many move on to satiate the next one.  This is the lowest level of relativity.  If a connection is made between the individuals, an intellectual encounter occurs.  Though, this experience is one steeped in duality where many reside here to relate primarily with their minds and bodies. 

When we allow ourselves to open and be vulnerable, we enter the emotionality of relationships.  For many this takes years of relation for it to begin, and even this may be an instinctual form of feeling.  However, some do choose to connect on an emotional level and develop and nurture their heart center.  This is where the magic begins.  Given the heart is the gateway to the soul, when two people choose this experience, their intuitions guide them to the universality of love.

Acceptance and Understanding

The two most absent qualities in the last couple of years has been acceptance and understanding.  In a society where communication, relativity and workability have broken down, it is plain to see how detrimental their absence has been in regard to our collective evolution.  Acceptance is a cornerstone of love and understanding its foundation.  In these times of isolation in the interest of health and well-being (someone explain that one to me!), it isn’t the distance we have with others, it is the separation from ourselves and more accurately our souls.     

The Freedom Within

We are separated from ourselves.  Most are not able to accept let alone understand this reality.  Being in the experience of love calls us to be related and in love with ourselves so we may share it with others.  Each of our journeys is unique.  We will not find love for ourselves when we seek it in those around us.  We can only experience it within.  Given that most of us do not know who we are, this makes being in love impossible.  We may believe we are, yet belief and being are very different things.  Creating and becoming love empowers us to share in its experience.        

“Love is being in the moment so much that nothing else matters.”

The New Era

“Awareness begins with the choice to be conscious.”

In the Shift:

As mentioned before in previous articles, we are in an extraordinary, universal energetic shift.  There has never been one more essential or significant.  Since before the Winter Solstice 2020, ascension, awareness, empowerment, inspiration, transformation and transcendence are available in remarkable abundance.  All it requires is for us to be present to our instincts, intellect, emotions, intuition, soul and the universe.  This is a choice we must make.  Before, it may have appeared optional.  Now, it is vital to fully experience our lives.  We can acquiesce and engage in the seductive influence of social reality and its material splendor, or we can awaken from and break the spell we all have been under to acknowledge, embrace, express and manifest our experience.

Sleepless Slumber:

Our life is a dream.  Nothing more, nothing less.  In fact, many of us have never awoken.  We stumble in the darkness of society reacting to circumstances and situations with the dire hope we break ahead.  This is the fundamental dynamic of reality.  Living from external motivations of lack, want and survival.  Our peripheral lives are rooted in a linear perception, constantly seeking self-value in the people around us.  When we fail to find our worth from others, we encounter instinctual, intellectual and emotional breakdowns, instantaneously severing our relativity with our heart, intuition, soul and the universe.  We engage in social reality, perceiving it as the path of least resistance.  Yet, it diminishes our potential to create, establish, express, manifest and sustain our personal truth.

Hook, Line and Sinker:

There are many devices of social entrapment.  Religion separates us from our soul.  Politics divide and disempower.  Advertisements program us to consume.  Entertainment lulls us into escapism and fantasy.  Sporting events spark us into a competitive fever pitch of triumph and tragedy.  All forms of media pander fear to condition our perception of the world.  The medical industry promotes illness and dependance on chemicals and continual care.  Laws are established by white collar criminals to protect their illegal activities, sentencing society to its own apathy, confusion, ignorance and oblivion.  While authoritarian regimes reign with a ruthless, global military state, wherein the people are manipulated to police each other.  All these social influences serve to imprison us in our mind and body.    

Breaking the Chains:

Extracting ourselves from social reality can be an excruciating and terrifying experience.  There are many ways to free ourselves from all that arises to steal our consciousness.  Our focus, attention, awareness, energy and expression are vital to transforming our experience.  Whatever ritual we choose, what is most important is our alignment, equilibrium and relativity with the universe.  We must create, empower, inspire and sustain our unique purpose, while being aware of the billions of social influences we may encounter.  We are the weakest link in the chain of artificial society.  Meaning, only we can break the bonds of our engagement.  Simply shifting our attention from the peripheral with our inner observation and intention breaks the chains of our social incarceration.

“An eon of enslavement has ended; an era of empowerment has begun.”

The Rise of Universality:

We are a soul having a human experience.  Yet, we have been deceived into believing we are a human being having a spiritual encounter.  The focus of our common existence has been distorted and manipulated, tethering us to our instincts and intellect.  We are all multidimensional beings of energy expressing ourselves with our intuition, heart, mind and body.  Balancing the domains of our being to align with our soul is our universality, our relativity with the universe.  Though it has been available to us from birth, it is most accessible and present than ever before.  Universality is an eternal and infinite force, the source of all creativity, empowerment, imagination, inspiration, transformation and transcendence.  Humanity stands upon the threshold.  All we need do is walk through the door.

Rite of Passage:

Initiation is the cornerstone of all organizations, be they charitable, collegiate, corporate, political, religious or spiritual.  It is an introduction to an ideology, with the intention of enriching our lifestyle.  However, this too has been strategically highjacked to impose indoctrination into singular methodologies of organized propaganda.  Each of us must acknowledge and navigate our personal rite of passage to align with the universe and become its expression within social reality.  There are over seven billion unique rituals of experience existing around the world.  When we discover one we are inspired to walk, an extraordinary exchange of energy resonates through our intuition, heart, mind and body.  This equilibrium in our being is an affirmation we are in alignment with our soul and the universe.

The Grand Progression:

All who have chosen their unique path are in an accelerated evolution of conscious being.  Possibility and potentiality are always present.  Instant creation, expression and manifestation is happening all around us.  This, in and of itself, can spin us off our center.  We are all entering a powerful, transformative era of experiential existence.  From Winter Solstice 2021 to Spring Equinox 2022, the influence of social reality will intensify to prevent the Grand Progression of our energetic consciousness.  All who are engaged and invested in social reality will seek to control, distort, manipulate and obstruct humanity from achieving its collective destiny.  Yet, it is not the authoritarian forces who are holding us hostage.  It is our own apathy, control, fear and insecurity. 

Focus, Ground, Center and Balance:

Social environments activate our anxiety, chaos, escapism and pain.  We are victims of our circumstances, conditioning and programming.  Our acquiescence to social reality is our greatest self-oppression.  Being swept away by its tumultuous tides is an epidemic of global proportion.  We are constantly in an energetic hurricane, necessitating us to ground ourselves and step into its eye.  Our freedom is found within.  Our energy goes where our attention flows.  Amidst the melee, we must identify and establish our being by focusing our conscious intent.  Tuning the resonance of our energy empowers us to center ourselves as we navigate the perils of social reality.  Our equilibrium is the alchemy of our being. Establishing our balance with the universe in the present empowers our own. 

Creative Relativity:

What we think we know is immaterial.  What we believe we understand is even more irrelevant.  Our arrogance, entitlement, expectation and self-righteousness are what inhibits the evolution of our being.  The more we cling to the known aspects of our existence, the more we sacrifice our opportunity to shift with universal energy.  Relativity as familiarity confines us into a paradigm of antiquated obsolescence.  Relativity with the flow of creativity aligns us with the universe.  Who we are being in the present is our essential experience.  Our balanced being is a lightning rod carrying the resonance of the Grand Progression.  As we attune to this energy, we manifest its shift into social reality.  Releasing all we have established as our identity empowers our universality.

The New Era:

Beyond the threshold of all we know, abides all we feel, intuit and experience.  Instinct, intellect and reactive emotion has no bearing in the universe.  Therefore, it is nearly impossible to align with it while existing in a three-dimensional construct with a two-dimensional understanding.  We cannot experience universality through the lens of social reality.  This causes a paradox which annihilates our fulfillment.  We must be committed and willing to let go of everything around us, even ourselves, to embrace transcendence of being.  We are all creators of our experience.  We all have the personal power to align, focus, ground, center and balance our being.  We need only open our vision, set our intention, create our purpose, flow with the Grand Progression and be an expression of the universe.

Universal Flow:

All of us have a unique purpose only we can express.  It is our covenant with life.  When we commit to our destiny, it synergizes our relativity with the universe.  Given the status of society, it is evident we are not fulfilling our vow.  Universality is present whenever we are in alignment within ourselves.  This empowers us to express it into our social environment.  It inspires us to accelerate and elevate our energy.  Though we exist in a chaotic and destructive, virtual reality, universal energy is always present in every moment.  Our stream of consciousness is sourced from our soul, through our intuition and into our heart, mind and body.  It is a multidimensional experience empowering every element of our being.  Universality is the energy of the new era.  We are the instruments of its music.

 “Being is the new era of enlightenment.”

“Universality” The Soul of Spirituality

“We are not as spiritual as we “believe.””

The Invisible All:

We are conditioned with an institutionalized interpretation of the universe.  To the indoctrinated, more than 99% of what exists in the universe does not.  Social reality averts our focus to the less than 1%, preoccupying us with the material and trivial affairs of duality.  Science has hypothesized itself into an academic coma concerning our relativity with the universe.  As most scientific fields employ instinct and intellect for analysis, examination and conclusion, this approach fosters ignorance in our quest to experience universal mystery.  All which does not fit into the proverbial box of knowledge is ultimately denounced and debated into irrelevance and nonexistence.  Human nature is to debunk rather than be.  Even the most “intelligent” people front arrogance in the face of enlightenment.   

Against the Grain:

The universe is the essence of our existence.  Given our society discredits and ridicules all unseen and unheard as fantasy and fiction, it is almost impossible for us to nurture an awareness of and relativity with the universe.  Its fundamental nature is energy, the essential element of our daily experience.  Everything begins with an energetic resonance.  However, many of us instinctively expend all the vitality we receive without a conscious practice of regeneration and sustenance.  Our longevity eventually wanes as we mature into adulthood.  Every aspect of our physical and mental existence eventually becomes antiquated.  For most, aging is a vicious cycle of energetic oblivion.  Empowerment is the presence of universal energy in our experience.  This manifests in who we are being. 

The Frequency of Flow:

We all emit an energetic signature.  Its frequency is a synthesis of our awareness, creativity and purpose.  When we align our centers, our energy resonance elevates and synergizes with the universe.  This relativity is always transforming, established by our equilibrium, environment and expression of being.  It is a multidimensional experience involving frequent shifts in our focus, consciousness and intention.  Often, we fail to preserve this balance to enrich our relativity with the universal stream.  Social reality further complicates our ability to connect and relate with the flow against the gravity of three-dimensional existence.  At any moment, we all have the potential to receive an abundance of energy.  Our energetic oblivion and recklessness inhibit our universal enlightenment and empowerment.    

All We Are:

We are souls.  At birth, we experience a schism in our being further amplified by the social reality we endure.  Our societal conditions are unfavorable in sustaining a fulfilling environment in which our souls can thrive.  Eventually, we become distant relatives to our spirit, diminishing our intuitive potential by repressing our emotionality and taking residence in our mind and body.  We are multidimensional beings personifying creativity, possibility and relativity beyond the periphery of our human experience.  Our soul expresses its universality through our intuition into our energy centers.  Our heart emanates a massive electromagnetic field which expands through us and into our environment.  We are universal energy expressing our soul into a holographic reality.

“Being is the manifestation of our soul.”

Soul Purpose:

Our soul is one with the universe.  This union sources our universality.  The only exclusions that exist are ones we allow or enable with an imbalance of our instincts, thoughts, feelings and intuition.  The body, mind and heart are all vital facets of our being.  However, they are not who we are.  They are mere tools birth provides us to experience life on earth.  Our intuition is the pathway through which our soul empowers our existence.  Our heart center receives, transforms and emanates universal energy. For us to receive, transpose and express it, we must cultivate equilibrium between the dimensions of our being.  Our purpose is establishing and sustaining this essential balance to manifest universality into reality.  By frequently transforming, we become an expression of the universe. 

Existential Enigma:

By nature, our everyday existence conflicts with our soul’s purpose.  Our experience in social reality is the ultimate irony, as it is the antithesis of universality.  As human beings, we are incapable of preserving the essential balance to be an expression of the universe.  All the energy we invest in our individual experience is primarily siphoned into a static, two-dimensional perception within a three-dimensional, virtual reality.  Our daily practice to relate with and embody universality is vital to align with the energy and expression of our soul.  We will never fully comprehend the multiplicity of our universal experience against the grain of terrestrial existence.  This is the existential enigma of spirituality.  However, our commitment to our soul and heart center with our prayer invokes universality.    

The Path of Prayer:

Beyond the social stigma prayer may receive when associated with religion, it is not just a recitation of ritualistic words and phrases. It is the nature of our intention which conveys its power.  The greatest manifestation of our being is our relativity with and expression of the universe.  When we send our prayer, it is a call for relation with all.  A universal stream of consciousness we align with to empower our awareness, focus, and energy.  Yet, it is not just its expression, it is how we hold our prayer in our daily experiences.  Occasionally, we become it, and in so being, it transforms us, our experience and our environment.  Prayer empowers our being.  It is the pathway which connects us with creation and kindles the relatedness between our soul and the universe.   

The Medicine of Mystery:

Healing is the primary focus of any spiritual path.  We cannot seek to hold a space for people to have their experience when we are overcome with our personal histories of drama, trauma and woundedness.  When we attempt to quantify universality so our mind can understand, we diminish our energy and experience.  Our spiritual encounters are multidimensional.  Their vision and insight happen in the moments they are meant.  When we force their manifestation, we will never receive their optimal benefit.  The preservation of the mystery present in our experiences is the medicine.  Holding a space for the universe to exist in our reality empowers us to transcend the ordinary and embrace the extraordinary.  This is our purpose.  It is who we are.

The Soul of Spirituality:

There is a space within us beyond time and place and all we believe we know.  It is who we are before we are born.  In essence, we are universal energy resonating beyond imagination.  Our creative expression brings us closest to acknowledging, embracing and becoming universality.  Merely living as a human being only segregates us from our soul’s expression.  There is an energetic frequency present in every moment of our experience.  Every breath brings an opportunity for us to balance our being and align with the flow of the universe.  It empowers, inspires and transforms who we are as a sacred space of being.  The soul of spirituality is enlightening our instincts, intellect, emotions and intuition to embody our essence and be an expression of the universe.        

Solstice Shift:

Since before the Winter Solstice 2020, a remarkable energetic shift has been occurring in the universe.  Being unified with its flow amidst the chaos, conflict and intensity of social reality is our collective purpose.  It is an opportunity to establish our equilibrium, align with our soul and express universality.  This shift is available to all who choose to resonate with the universe.  We are being empowered beyond the boundaries of ordinary existence to embrace evolution, transformation and transcendence.  As we progress toward this Winter Solstice, all the feelings, thoughts, behaviors and realities no longer beneficial to us and others are emerging to be released.  Freedom is letting go of everything.  This is the essential distinction between pursuing “artificial power” and “being” empowered. It is our destiny to transform social reality with universality.
