The Active Side of Infinity

Carlos Castaneda and Julian Rose

“Every one of us human beings has two minds. One is totally ours, it is like a faint voice that always brings us order, directness, purpose. The other is a foreign installation. It brings us conflict, self-assertion, doubts, hopelessness: it’s ourselves as the ‘me-me’ centre of the world.”

Thus spoke Carlos Castaneda in ‘The Active Side of infinity’ which is part of the ‘Teachings of Don Juan’ series. And I’m going to give you more excerpts from The Active Side of Infinity. Because I believe that these writings present Shamanic teachings to us in a direct, powerful way – and at a time when we most need them. (more…)

Seizing Control of Our Destinies

In 1381, at a time of great repression for the British agricultural work force, an extraordinary people’s revolutionary named Wat Tyler sprang to his feet and announced “England should be a nation of self governing communities” to which he added “ No lord shall exercise lordship over the people, and, as we are oppressed by so vast a hoard of bishops and clerks, the property of the holy church should be taken and divided.”

His colleague, the priest John Ball, spoke out with equal fervour “The lords’ claims to be more lords than we are rests solely on their power to force us to labour that they may spend.” (more…)

The Future Is the Farmer

At a farmer’s fair in Krakow, South Poland, in early May, I spoke to a Romanian peasant. He was demonstrating clay pot making using a foot treadle to spin the plate upon which the pots were being formed by his deft hands.

I remarked how attractive I found this technology due to its lack of reliance upon any electrical power source. He nodded, saying “No other power required.” The conversation swung to the need to remain independent; independent of state and industry controlled sources of power. Because being dependent upon centralised power, be it energetic or political, means always owing something to someone or something; whereas to be free of such a burden enables one to form strategic relations where one pleases. This form of sharing creates a natural form of interdependence with fellow humans, rather than dependence on governments and corporations. He nodded again.

A colourful troupe of Gorale (Polish mountain farmers) were stamping their feet to the rousing notes of a merry fiddle while weaving a circular pattern through and amongst each other, shouting out in occasional bravura. My Romanian friend was looking-on, his non-treadle foot tapping out the folk song’s rhythms. After a little he turned towards me and said “The farmer is the future.” (more…)

Echo of the Primitive

Between them, the upward aspiration of the Spirit and the pull of the Earth exert the two most fundamental influences on our lives. Strip away all the parifinalia of modern life and the raw energies of these two forces take hold of us, opening up our latent powers.

What might appear to be two opposing forces turn out to be complementary dynamics sharing one original source.

To find our true equilibrium – it is necessary to get creative with these two dynamics. Let them speak to us, through us, so that we are re-imbued with the power that we have allowed to be stolen from us through centuries of denial. Denial, both by us and by those who set the trap which so great a portion of human-kind has walked into. (more…)

A Phoenix Rising

“There’s a battle outside and it’s ragin, it’ll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls, for the times they are a’ changin’”

The historical evidence points to the fact that, when faced by extreme adversity, many cultures of the world finally start proving their true worth. It simply seems to be the case that, for many, unless their backs are pressed hard against the wall, they can see no reason to involve themselves in any form of resistance.

Two things seem to be in transition on this front. Firstly, due to a rise in cosmic energy finding it’s way to our planet at this time, the opportunity for gaining higher awareness is greater than in the recent past. Secondly, the proliferation of global information and news (of very varied quality) is now everywhere at all times. Put these together and we have a receipt for change.

Now one might deduce that this means that the dark side’s energies are also enhanced – and that their powers of instant communication are equally increased. But this is where it gets interesting: the incoming higher frequency energies vibrate at a level which is only accessible to those whose own frequencies rise up to meet them. For those who simply maintain basic low levels of receptivity – the new vibratory spectrum will offer no tangible assistance. In fact the gap will increase between the two states of being.

A process of polarisation is being set in motion, making it more and more clear just ‘who is’ and ‘who is not’ on the road to an emancipation of consciousness.

For the dark side, these are perilous times. One can deduce that an increasingly intense search for third density sustenance will accompany this transitional process. The vampiric urge will be heightened. Expect further heinous crimes involving the blood-letting of those who are deemed ‘ripe’. Expect further outbursts of reactionary aggression. Of mindless irrational behaviour in both talk and physical actions. Expect outbursts of mind-blowing arrogance – as the need to puff-up in false pride becomes the most readily accessible form of delusional resistance to the advancing waves of truth.

However, simultaneous to the rising-up from the sea of this dark old monster, we ‘the receptive people’ increasingly embrace the vibratory chords rising-up in ourselves – and are therefore more fully empowered to stand face to face with this scaly old leviathan.

So are we opened-up to a consciousness that imparts greater boldness and courage in the face of adversity. That imparts bravery where once we shrank back in timidity. That forces us to dig deep into our divine selves and bring to the surface that gold which cannot be endured by opposing entities.

This gold is indeed precious, for it is the herald of a great reunion: the coming together of, let us call them – the Great Spirit and the Great Shaman: ‘cosmic receptivity’ – and – ‘earthly creative’. These two have been divided, conquered and wrenched apart by centuries of Illuminati dark scheming for absolute global dominance. During this time Cosmic Receptivity and the Earthly Creative have been forced into a deeply unhappy divorce – with billions on this planet going with them. Needless to say, the rejoining of these two inherently inseparable forces is greatly feared by the dark knights of the perverted soul.

Listen! We can now catch the first notes of a sweet musical refrain. A refrain that is, at this very moment rising up out of the mists of time – and heralding a truly momentous reunion – one to which we are all invited! Oh what a wedding – this reuniting of heaven and earth!

Preparations for the feast are already under way even as the bloody, toxic horror of war tries to hold centre stage to distract our straining minds. Even as the missiles are trained on their prey; as the war
cries grow in intensity. Even then – our unstoppable Phoenix is rising!

We are expanding our awareness of what is our role in this extraordinary transition – and it is – at least on one plain – paradoxical: for we are both creating the future and adjusting to a future that is in-creation. In realising the Godly within, we mould and sculpt a creative form for our daily lives. We go out to enhance the environment around us as a deepening expression of our burgeoning love of life. We sow our garden and reap it’s fruits. We take action and make our stand in defence of life.

On the other hand, we we remain constantly receptive to that which guides us in our actions; always listening for the subtle voice of cosmic inspiration, always awake to intuitive guidance. This is the dynamic of movement, change, human transformation that is taking place even as I write.

So now, as we gain new insights into our capacities to bring about a better world, the onus is upon us to use these capacities intelligently, creatively and passionately. This is the Phoenix rising – and by God do we need it! As the dark side press-on with their war games to grab the tantalizing prize of a long craved Middle Eastern bastion of power – so we increasingly discover that we are gaining the power to stop this deathly process – to stop all wars!

The energies rising in us are of Divine origin – so are we! Can anyone tell me what more is needed to take-down this obscene display of imperial power mongering? One that doesn’t care if it takes the entire world with it in its howling passion for destruction?

Many, many, sense a great turning. What is it?

I want to suggest an answer: it’s a ‘turning away’ from regarding such war spectacles as a ‘show’ to which we are simply passive spectators and commentators. That, we now realize, is no longer possible. It never was. We are involved. Whether we like it or not – there’s no escape.
So, upon accepting this truth, our next task is to bring all ‘worst case scenarios’ into our personal awareness so we can work out our individual and collective responses – testing each against the ‘fear’ factor. So, if we feel fear at the prospect of an apocalyptic showdown – we then need to find that element in ourselves which overcomes such fear – and bolster it. This is the real preparation for overcoming our reticence to act when act we must.

The act of ‘saying no to war’ whether by letter, demonstration, physical blockade or public awareness raising – constitutes a powerful means of overcoming the isolationist feeling that is the breeding ground for fear. Right now is definitely the time to make our feelings heard.

Then, as I have underlined already, there is this vast untapped resource in us all which can, overnight, change even the worst scenario into a march to absolute victory! This is how this universe was created – and we are it’s component parts. Therefore, collectively, we can bring about the demise of all these warmongering sycopaths at a stroke – for their power is nothing in comparison to ours – once we are motivated.

So let us urge ourselves on to reverse the barren future the war maniacs are planning for us.
Start today! There is no time to loose.

We came to this planet to win it back. To take it under our wings. To nurture it back into health. To confront and confound its enemies. Not one of us has the right to ignore that particular role we are each destined to play in securing an illumined future for our earthly home.
