This article is purely theoretical and it may be a little too far out there for some of you, but the logic holds true if you believe in the afterlife and the concept of having a soul. I feel it has a certain amount of possibility, and it definitely is an interesting concept.

Okay so I believe the majority of us can agree we are currently alive and possess the unique property of life. When someone passes away their life-force leaves their physical body, and the body decomposes and is recycled. There is a disagreement between cultures with what happens to your life-force/soul. Atheists believe nothing happens you simple cease to exist. Agnostics believe there is no possible way to really say what happens aside from decomposition, so they have no opinion. Hindus, Buddhists, and various native peoples believe their energy is redistributed throughout the universe and depending on the way you lived your life, your are reincarnated. Christians believe your life-force/soul goes back to be with God if you have repented for your sins, and have received salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ. Muslims believe when you die you return to be with Allah/God in heaven if you have lived a devout Muslim lifestyle. And many people don't exactly know what to believe. But this article is not specifically dealing with death, but more so what happens before you are born.

Some religions believe you are a spirit/etheric energy that resides inside a physical vehicle called a body. This happens to be my personal belief due to out-of-body experiences I have had, but now I will offer an interesting concept of how exactly our spirits/souls are born into this physical world.

So lets assume we all believe we are spiritual energies that live inside a physical body, if you don't believe this than this article won't make much sense any way. Before we are in this physical dimension we exist in a spiritual dimension may cultures have referred to as heaven, the spirit world, and etc. So upon conception a portal is created inside of the womb of a woman that allows the spirit to enter the physical vessel of the fetus. If we are thinking scientifically this point would be sometime after the semen fertilizes the egg. A day or two later a zygote is formed and the two haploid reproductive cells have came together to become one. There is no real way to define when this creation is a human, and there is no real way to tell when the soul has entered the entity, but I will offer a fact that is irrefutable:

Since scientists define a cell as "the basic unit of life." Then both the sperm cell and the egg cell are two individual living things. So when they come together and become one they have been alive the entire time, and have simply evolved into a higher state of being. So there is never a single point in time when a fetus is not a living thing. Again, like I mentioned in my article Aliens Exist. We Proved it by Landing on the Moon, our problem lies in our rigidity of definitions. 

Is it a human? Is it a fetus? Is it a zygote? All of these questions are really irrelevant, because they are just terms we have created in order to describe something in the physical world. They just describe our understanding and mental construct, the truth is they are all just different stages of the same thing. The separation is an illusion created by our own minds. Sure, it serves its purpose to define and label things, but the reality is we are all made of the same components just at a different level of evolution. Our bodies are organic, a banana is organic, a monkey is organic, but this does not mean they are the same thing. They are made of the same components but they are compiled together to create a different creation.

This is because of dimension. If we were to zoom in and leave our current point of reference. All we would be able to observe is billions of different cells that function individually, but they also work together to create what ever organ. Zoom in even further and you have organelles inside the cells that function as the organs of cells. If we were to zoom in even deeper it would just be molecules which are made of the various elements of the periodic table. This is leaving the dimension of biology and entering the dimension of chemistry. Now if you split the elements apart and examine them we enter the realms of atomic physics. Even deeper still we can enter the subatomic dimension where nothing can be explained in the normal sense. But we aren't done zooming. This is just where we are today some 264 years after the invention of Science. I personally believe you can zoom in for eternity. I believe in the idea of a negative infinity and a positive infinity, meaning you can zoom in for eternity and you can zoom out for eternity.

Now that we have zoomed in we see at a certain point we come to a position where literally everything is made of a common substance. That common substance is simply called energy. We don't really know what energy is, but we know it exists and has always existed, for ever. This is what I perceive as God. The infiniteness of the Universe is overwelming, but we are a part of the Universe, therefore a part of God.

So back to the semen and the egg cells. They both are living things, and they consist of living organelles that make decisions function to keep the cells alive, in turn keeping our organs alive, in turn us alive. But where and when does consciousness develop? Are the cells in our bodies conscious things that work together to compile to create our life?  Its interesting to say that consciousness has to develop, but I have seen some full grown adults that were barely conscious. There are different degrees of consciousness, and just because you are alive does not mean you are conscious.

But my postulation is that the soul must enter the physical body in order for consciousness to exist, and the soul must leave the body in order for someone to die. This is the basis for my theory, upon sexual intercourse and conception that triggers the creation of a portal at the subatomic level that allows the soul to manifest itself into the physical dimension. There is no other way for this to happen, and this is why many cultures have practiced ritual sex, and regarded sex as a sacred act reserved only for reproduction. It is a sacred act, that is necessary for the continuation of our species.

Like I said, this article is definitely out there, but it is an interesting concept. It is exciting to think about and will really throw your mind for a trip. 

Like always, thank you for reading. If you have any thoughts please leave a comment. Share this article if you thought it was thought provoking.

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.

My intention of this post is to help those of you not versed in magick to develop a deeper understanding of the concept of magick. First off I am speaking about "real magick", not stage magic. Stage magic is the art of illusion. Which is equally real, but is obviously an optical illusion, a visual trick. So to distinguish between the two we will refer to it as "magick"

Ok... Magick... the stuff that isn't real. Popular belief has it, nothing is real outside what we can't visually perceive or is immediately tangible to the five senses. But in the realm of magick there exists the sixth sense. Ohhh. I threw you for a trip there didn't I? 

So in order to even begin contemplating magick you must believe/hope/open your mind to perception outside of daily life. This is often difficult because we have such a tight grip on our perception we won't allow ourselves experiment for fear of ridicule or humiliation by the opinion of others, but in truth a social reality does not exist. It is a combination of opinion and culture. Culture being geographic opinion. 

So let us visualize a moment in your life when you experienced intuition that is outside our five normal senses. Say for example you are walking to your car thinking about your long lost best friend Billy Bob, and coincidentally Billy Bob is contacting you via your cell phone and the conversation goes a little something like this: "Holy crap dude! I was just thinking about you!" Billy Bob replies "Great minds think alike!" And then you both catch up on what ever it is you have missed. 

My point is these things happen far too often for them to be sheer coincidence. Do this. The next time this happens make a silent note about it and move on. Then the next time a similar event occurs recall back and calculate the time in between. It happens far more often than you'd think.

Okay now that we fully understand and believe in the sixth sense we can now open up the discussion of magick. Magick as defined by the ever popular and totally noncontroversial Aleister Crowley is as follows "Magick is the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will."  The Science and Art that causes change to occur in conformity with will. Magick is not a twist of a wand or a flick of a wrist; no it is not that simple. However some people do those things and get results, that is not the definition. Those are just psychological tools that help manipulate reality in your liking. Okay, so that last sentence had a little hocus pocus lingo to it. Lets talk about manipulating reality in a magickal context for a minute. What does it mean to manipulate reality in conformity with will? I will give you a real life example, one that I have used often to get the results that I desire.

Example: I want to save money on the purchase of this fast food order. So I make it happen without infringing on the nice lady accepting my money at the window. What I do is while driving up to the window I affirm it into reality "Thank you for saving money on this meal." Then as the lady tells me what the total is I place a dilemma in our conversation. I may say something like this: "Which discount is better? A military discount or a college ID discount?" I be sure to look the most precious as possible and maintain a sweet and sincere eye contact. The sweet lady responds with "Awe I'm sorry sir, we don't have a military or student discount. =( " Then I look her directly in the eyes and say "That's okay. I will take the senior citizen discount." Slightly confused but amused at the same time she says "ha okay I can do that for you."

I collect my food and save a whopping $1 and drive away. To an outsider they would say that wasn't magick you idiot. That was just smooth talking and speech craft skill. But to another individual they would say "Damn man. You worked your magic!" The point is it is all relative to your perspective. One man's magick is another mans common skill. There are many occult techniques that can be utilized to benefit you, but remember, we are ethical people. We are the Ace of Spade. We get what we want, but we do not infringe on other people. To infringe would be unethical and dancing on the boarders of Black Magick, and we don't want that Karma on us.

In summary: Magick is not hocus pocus, while it can be, but by definition it is not. Magick is Will Power. Will Power is overcoming obstacles to get what you want. There is nothing wrong with getting what you want. Do not allow yourself to be held down by limiting thoughts. It is all a test. Test other people and if your Will Power is stronger you will win. Sports are another great example. There is no problem with winning the game, but the only way to win is to out "Will" the other team. "If you want to win you have to have a really bad case of the wants."

Thank you for reading.

Blessings

In the Beginning 

02/19/2013

 
Picture
Everything that exists or ever has existed had a beginning. We are a small segment of the fractal programming of the universe. Everything is interconnected and separation only exists relative to the position of the one perceiving it. 

Here on Earth we draw separation between us, the grass growing out of the concrete, the dog barking next door, and the borders we live within. We create barriers that help us distinguish things, ideas, and concepts. It would cause much confusion if no one knew exactly where the border of the US & Mexico precisely was. Miguel would be shouting "Amigo! Amigo! America starts 3km to the north!" While the confused border patrol officer is scratching his head.

But separation is only a partial truth. Separation serves purpose on a micro level, but it is a narrow perception of the total reality. The whole truth is we are all interconnected. We are all creations of the Earth/Universe/God or what ever you choose to believe. 

My cat, Tom, died a few years ago. The next summer I was outside enjoying the electromagnetic radiation the sun provides, and I noticed a patch of grass growing almost knee high. The surrounding grass was barely pricking through my toes. My dead childhood pet was recycled by the Earth and converted into vital nutrients for my yard. It took a little while for Tom to be reincarnated, but eventually the energy of the cat was released back into the Earth.

Everything is about energy. The energy required to do the dishes is the same energy required to make a million bucks. The same energy required to warm the earth is the same energy required to make the universe tick.

We are separate, but equal. We are divided, but whole. We are infinitely large and infinitely defined. We are a piece to this strange puzzle we call life. We are energy. 

Blessings
