It was exactly a year ago that my friend Justin Ratowsky invited me to donate to his charity water campaign. I felt it was important to give because it is such a small privilege I have taken for granted. Not having access to clean or even cold water is hard for me to imagine, much less entire communities that are deprived of basic resources. But the reality is there are people elsewhere in the world where clean water is a blessing. I am inspired to help change that.

God is within and God is external. God is all around, but no where to be seen. God is seen everywhere. God is you and God is me. We are all one. It is our own perceptions that create separation. It is our own emotions that allow us to struggle. It is our own poor decisions that allow us to suffer circumstances that are not congruent with peacefulness.

My readers need to know one thing. You are God. You are not separate from this existence. You are a part of this greatness. Negative experiences are filtered through your mind. The feelings of despair do not have to be accepted. You can reject them and refuse to accept anything other than ecstatic bliss.

Think of this. Your body is composed of billions of microscopic life forms called cells. Cells function together to make organs. All of that compiled together create you, a living breathing human being. Cities work the same way. A city is nothing more than a compilation of buildings, people, roads, and space. A state is the same also. A state or province is a collection of land mass defined by some governments definition. There is no real separation between cities/states/countries other than what we agree on. It's all just a location on Earth, floating someplace in the infinity of space.

We are the same as all other things in this world, we are bounded by our accepted definitions. The notion that we are God can be misinterpreted as an offensive statement. The conflict comes with a divergence of opinions, nothing more. It is pushing against the status quo that makes people feel uncomfortable. Sometimes that is a good thing, other times it is bad. 

You see, we are all one. We are a part of the bigger whole. As I've talked about before, we are simply a numerical digit in the infinite fractal of the universe's programming. Its all a pattern that repeats itself over and over at varying degrees depending on dimensional size.

Some people view God as an external being that is not a part of his creation. That is not how I view it. I view God as the totality of everything that has ever existed and ever will exist. Some say God is infinite, scientists say the Universe is infinite, and my stance is: God is the fundamental energy that makes all of creation. God is what fuels the Universe. As the Law of Conservation of Energy says, "Energy can not be created or destroyed." Energy has always existed in one form or another. It is simply rearranged. This is the basis for reincarnation and many other philosophical beliefs. As I said in a previous article, my cat died, we buried him, and sometime later the grass grew big, dark, and green. My childhood pet, Tom... Well... He was recycled. 

It is an infinite loop we are all contained within. That loop is the physical domain, our energy can not leave the physical world, because it is a part of God. We are simply living on borrowed matter. What happens to our consciousness upon death? Well that's the greatest mystery of all time now isn't it?

Blessings,

The Book of Powers

06/03/2013

 
Introduction
   Every so often one crosses paths with a true master. A subtle transaction of energy takes place. There is a mysterious and internal communication that exchanges silently. It is beguiling, enchanting, and empowering. The person is magical and mysterious, warm and empowering.  To most people they just can’t place their finger exactly on what it is that attracts you to this person, the exact words to explain this subtle feeling are fleeting. For some magical and seemingly unknown reason the person acts as a magnet pulling in successful relationships, money, love, inspiration, and anything else they desire. Everything works in perfect harmony for them. Life is easy, their physical body, energy, posture, and charisma all act as a magnet that makes people go crazy over them. They are successful and powerful, but quiet, controlled, and humble. Their power is not necessarily that of riches and glamour  but it is more so an immense level of respect and fascination of others to where he/she almost appears to be Godlike, this is because they are consciously connected. Everyone wants to be like them but very few know how or even what it is they need to do to create this feeling.

   From now on out we will refer to this person as a Sage. A Sage is a master of them self. A Sage is the highest position a person can be because he or she is the lowest. A Sage puts everyone else above themselves, and in turn it makes them the highest. It sounds like a paradox, but speaking above others is being combative. Trying to be smart, trying to be cool and trying to win approval is weak energy. It is making others feel less because you think you are the best, so the other person has no room to feel empowered. We are here to empower others, not ourselves. Empowering others is the true source of power for a Sage. A Sage is the highest position of power any human can obtain, but they do so without exerting power or control over others. The only power they seek is the power to control themselves. A Sage has complete and total control over themselves. This is the purpose of this book, to teach you how to become a Sage, to teach you how to control yourself and in turn empower others.  You will become a master and a teacher, but only if you take the steps necessary. It will not be easy and the reality is many of you may fail. But failing only happens if you give up, and if you do fall, start climbing again. You have control over your life; now show it, but not to prove it to everyone else, but to prove it to yourself. Do it for others, but tell no one of your journey. It is sacred, it is private, it is personal. Together we can heal the world. Persevere and live the life of a Sage. This is the path to eternal happiness. This is the ultimate love you can give the world.

   If you give up you are destined to fall back to your normal humdrum state from which you came. If you are reading this, chances are you are like me and want to escape the humdrum world we call “Tick Tock”.  You probably seek a higher energy level and have the desire to make a change. This little book has the potential to positively change your life forever if you allow it. If you honestly apply the lessons taught you will be rewarded with a humbling gift. But it is a journey that will never end. It is continuously making the conscious decision to act, talk, walk, and become the Sage. It gets easier the more you learn, and eventually, with discipline, meditation, and perseverance you will be doing what I am doing now. You will become the teacher in your own way, which will empower others to take action in their lives to change for the best. This is my goal: to inspire the world to empower themselves to empower others. To me this is the greatest blessing of them all. Come now. We have much to learn.

 

The Tolemac Glow

The Tolemac Symbol
My ole' teacher has been speaking about The Tolemac Glow for years now. I have been a student of esoterism since 2009, and I am just now beginning to comprehend some of the more advanced concepts. There are many mysterious energies in the inner worlds, and very few people are open minded enough and disciplined enough to venture away from their comfort zone to experience them. Few are open to the idea of leaving their physical body behind, and nearly everyone doubts we have the ability to explore worlds outside this concrete physical reality. I can assure you  reality is much more complex and dimensional than popular opinion leads us to believe. Astral travel is unexplainably uniform across the world and is found in nearly all ancient cultures. 

There are a few disciplines necessary to acquire the ability to travel between worlds. The first being physical and mental control. You must be able to focus your mind on a single thought for more than a minute. You must be able to tone out distractions and slow your mind down to a theta state meditation. The theta rhythm is an oscillatory pattern in EEG oscillations in the 4–7 Hz frequency range. Slowing down the mind below daily functioning and allowing yourself to enter trance is vital for exploring the inner worlds. The inner worlds exist within us. It is projecting your consciousness inside of your body and exploring the infinity of your mind. Astral projection has many names, bi location, astral projection, astral travel, and etc. 

Many people argue these worlds do not exist, and it is appropriate to agree with them. Arguing is a mental disease that stems from an uncontrolled ego. It is no matter to me if you agree with me or not, but I can assure you they are real. We enter trance every night while we sleep, but the dimension you enter is erratic and is usually uncontrolled, undisciplined. The average person can not control their dreams, but some people are born with this psychic ability. Others have to learn how too the hard way, and this comes with practice, dedication, and meditation.

The Tolemac Glow is also described as The Divine Light of the Higher Self in some other esoteric teachings. There are many commonalities between the two, but I am not 100% certain if a distinction should be drawn. For now we will assume they are two in the same.

We are composed of light. We are energy and the warming radiating energy of the Tolemac offers us protection, warmth, and security. It is the essence of the God Force. A protecting energy available to all who accept it and to those who are unafraid to address it's reality. Many religious people would stop reading here, because I am not referring to it as "God's power" or whatever, but the reason I call it the God Force is because I am describing spiritual matters with the modern terminology of metaphysics. Metaphysics is the scientific approach at explaining those things not tangible and explainable with mathematics alone. All cultures have theology, but metaphysics is an advanced process that combines all that we know to better and more accurately define reality.

It is no secret the Universe possesses divine energy, and most religious people can agree there is a mysterious power that created and sustains life. There has been thousands of different names it has been given from thousands of different cultures and societies. But the reality exists it is impossible to fluently define, for infinity has no definition.

The Tolemac is the fundamental goodness and essence of the universe. It provides and maintains everything in perfect harmony. It is the alternative title for those of us who want a scientific explanation of God. It is not disproving God for we very much believe, but it is better defining the "God Force" because we are aware it exists, and defining things is what we are made to do.

Bright blessing to all who read. May the golden glow be strong with you at all times.
