Some People I Know

I know a lot of people on the higher levels, on the Higher Mental plane.  I know more people up there than I do down here in our physical world. I have more time to meet with my friends up there than I do down here.  Down here I spend the majority of my time just working.

The greatest scientists and spiritual leaders and interesting people are up there on the Higher Mental plane. At night I talk with them on a regular basis. I know I’m not the only person who has done this. Don’t be afraid to talk about this now, people need to be inspired about the higher worlds and experiences and reality, now, it’s time.  If you read Nikola Tesla biographies, near the end of his life he talked about talking to great scientists who have passed away, when a reporter was talking to him during a rare interview. Most biographies completely skip over that part because it’s so far-fetched and crazy sounding to most people. I’m sure it was true, I’m sure he really did that. That must have been amazing.

On the Higher Mental plane people are completely honest and up front, they never take offense, and don’t get mad and upset, and never misinterpret things, and never twist things. They aren’t using their emotions up there, because the Higher Mental plane is the level above emotion – it’s pure mind, in a way we’ve never seen down here in the physical plane. It’s unnecessary (and probably not possible) to bring junk from the “lower levels” to the Higher Mental plane. I think it’s not possible. Really those limitations from the lower levels is what holds people down, keeps them away from experiencing the higher levels that are so close to them they would be surprised if they only knew.

On the Higher Mental plane you can think much more clearly than here; you don’t have emotions and physical body problems that interrupt what you’re doing, what you’re thinking. It’s just not a thing up there.

One of my closest friends up there who I work with on a lot of projects (and have throughout my whole physical life), is apparently a very advanced person, because his lowest body is his Higher Mental body – in other words, he has no Astral nor Physical body; unlike us.  He doesn’t need them – he graduated from those levels, and does not need to go back, ever!  I think he can choose to go back if he wants to; one time I was talking to him about the fact that I still live on these “lower” levels – Astral and Physical.  I told him about a problem I was dealing with in our physical world, and he looked at me with sarcasm and a little apprehension, and exclaimed, “well, good luck with THAT…!”  in a funny way that made me laugh.  I could tell his meaning was “I’m glad I never have to deal with that stuff anymore!”

And I realized how much I wish I didn’t have to deal with these physical things again, and I won’t have to, some day, but for now I do. And I kind of like these problems I have in the physical world, in a curious, conquering every problem in this world, kind of way!  I feel differently than he does.  I actually like it.  But I do admit, it can be painful to live in our physical world at times.

It’s hard down here. But I’m glad to be here.

Flying Dream Running Out of Energy

This is a dream I had on April 21, 2017 –
I found myself consciously awake on the Astral plane.
I was able to fly because I felt like it; I was in a neighborhood area with houses and backyards and fences, and I was standing outside in some back yard and decided “I want to fly now to get out of here, and see the whole area from a high up point of view” – something I like to do a lot because I can then go to wherever I want from there.
So I used a burst of energy to launch myself up into the air at an angle, mostly up and a little bit towards some other houses I saw.
I didn’t put any more energy into it after that initial propulsion, I just went along for the ride, which was fun; my body/viewpoint traveled in a long arc, way up, over, and down, landing on the ground. It felt like it took 10-12 seconds.
I landed in a field behind the housing area that I wanted to land in the middle of.
So I re-aimed myself and tried to launch again, up at a smaller arc, to fine-tune my position, but I realized I couldn’t fly – I couldn’t launch! I could not figure out what muscle to move to make myself fly up into the air again.
This happens to me sometimes in dreams, and I don’t know what to do when it happens.
I had to break myself out of some limitation that was gripping me at the time, remove some restriction that I have within myself, my beliefs, or something. This time the way I did that was to twist my head to the right about 90 degrees, jerking it quickly like that, which changed my whole viewpoint, and that made me launch up into the air suddenly!

Now I was travelling in a big arc thru the air, however I couldn’t control it or aim myself for some reason; so I landed on the ground again, in a different completely wrong location than what I wanted.
At that point, I believe I was getting bored with the whole idea and I just woke up. It felt like it was time to wake up, that realization that I am losing all my propulsion energy, and things in my dream start to fall apart; it’s usually time to wake up then.

Those flying curves I travelled in were gravitational arcs; up, over and down. Like if you threw a stone at an angle, up into the air, the kind of path it would travel.

Of course on the Astral plane there are no hard rules about space; there is no gravity, you don’t even have to stop moving when you hit the ground, that’s not a requirement, you can go right thru the ground if you feel like it. I’ve done that before.
But since gravity is such a strongly built-in feeling in my consciousness from living in our physical world on Earth for years and years, gravity feels natural, the arc my “body” should take when thrown is a known feeling to me, so that behavior naturally happens on the Astral plane.
I wanted to stay longer, to stay conscious there in my dream world, and I wished I had more control in that moment so I could fly around some more like before when it was easy; I just didn’t have the energy now for whatever reason.

It would be interesting to learn what that motivation force is, in the Astral plane; what really is it, and how do I get more of it? Is it related to the thoughts we think in the Physical plane during the day, and the emotions we feel too? Perhaps not hurting ourselves and others with our thoughts and feelings produces more motive-force energy the next night? Sort of like not punching holes in your bucket before trying to get water from the well; keep more by not losing it from a leaky bucket. Maintain your capacity of that motive force.

I think it’s closely tied to slipping out of the Astral plane and back into the physical world – like getting out of your car and stepping onto a scooter – for a moment you’re kind of “between vehicles” and it may be awkward for a small bit.  But then I wake up, and my body moves and functions, and I am wide awake in the world once again.

The Bird and The Pebbles

This is my version of an old tale I remember my dad reading to me before bed, when I was very young, probably 40 years ago.

A man was walking through the forest near his home one day when suddenly a giant bird swooped down and grabbed the shoulders of his shirt with its large talons and flew off! Stunned, the man watched the colorful houses and trees pass by quickly below him. The bird flew higher and higher, up to the top of a tall mountain, up, up, and over the top.  A valley appeared on the other side of the mountain, which the man had never seen before.

The bird swooped down and dropped him off in this strange land.

He spent the day exploring the strange new place he found himself. It was filled with new birds and animals he had never seen before. The ground was covered in tiny pebbles – the man thought to himself that he really should bring something back to show people back home, so he picked up two handfuls of pebbles and put them in his pockets.

After a few hours of exploring, the man wondered how he could return home again, when he spotted the giant bird that had grabbed him originally. He sneaked up to the bird and leaped towards it. The bird tried to fly out of the way, but not in time; the man grabbed its legs as it flew up into the sky.  After flying around in circles for a while, the man discovered he could steer the bird in different directions by moving its legs. He guided the bird back towards his town, down, down to the forest near his home; they landed very close to where they originally started.

He ran home to tell his family.  As he recounted the amazing tale, his family seemed pretty doubtful since nothing like that had ever happened to them. 

Feeling dejected, the man turned to leave and put his hands into his pockets – and realized he still had the pebbles he picked up earlier!  As he pulled them out of his pockets to show his family, he was amazed to discover that they had all turned into valuable gems and jewels.



Wrote it Down in the Wrong Place

I dreamed the other night that I wanted to remember something from my recent dream-experience when I woke up, because I wanted to do a Google search for it, so I sat up and wrote a few words in my notebook.

Except, I had only “woken up” to the astral plane at that point, I wrote it down there – so when I actually woke up physically, a few minutes later, I was still lying in bed, I hadn’t written anything down at all in our world!

This time I couldn’t remember enough of it to write it down for real, so I couldn’t actually Google it.  I was annoyed.  🙂

 

Learning New Things Can’t Hurt You

Some people have the misperception that they have to pick one side of an argument, and stick to it.  I’m a Democrat!  I’m a Republican!  I believe in Capitalism! Communism! Totalitarianism! Nihilism! Technology is good! Technology is bad!  And so forth.  But that is limiting, and doesn’t utilize your full potential. The reality is that most things are “grey scales” – combinations of good and bad; it takes some investigation to figure out if you want to embrace something or not.

The secret is, you can learn about other viewpoints and it doesn’t have to change you.  You can still be you. You won’t be suddenly transformed into an evil entity. You get to stay “you”. By learning opposing viewpoints, you can better understand the other side, in order to argue better against them – or, better yet, integrate what they want/need into what you want/need, and come up with a hybrid solution that (surprisingly!) works for everyone involved.

Some High Schools and some Colleges have a “debate team,” which is very useful for people to train their mental mechanism to argue either side of a topic – regardless of which side they believe in.  It’s super powerful and useful to do that, if you have a hard-time listening to an opposing viewpoint.  If you can’t say “I hear you, and here’s what you’re saying, but I don’t believe it myself,” then you could benefit from participating in something like a Debate Team of some sort.  It’s good mental training.  It doesn’t hurt you, you still get to be you, with all your viewpoints and life choices.  People without this training avoid understanding any opposing viewpoint, they don’t want to think about it at all; thus limiting their ability to work with people of opposing viewpoints.  Don’t limit yourself like that.  You deserve better.

Think about it: once upon a time you could not ride a bike. You saw other people riding bikes, though, and wanted to learn how. Someone gave you a bicycle. So you tried to ride it – and you fell down. You might have hurt yourself too! But you got back up and tried again. And failed again. And you were ready to give up, because it’s impossible! Two wheels in-line cannot balance! That’s mathematically crazy!  The physics don’t check out!  Except… everyone around you seems to have conquered it…. So you kept trying.  And eventually, after lots of scrapes and scratches and hurt feelings – and giving up for a few days – eventually you got it!  You can ride a bike now. And, you can ride a bike for the rest of your life.

Once upon a time you could not even WALK.  You had to learn that, from trial and error, trying over and over again, ready to give up, except that everyone around you can seem to walk, so why not keep trying; and eventually you got it.

Once upon a time you could not even TALK….

Your life is filled with examples of learning powerful things that set you up for success for the rest of your life.  And they weren’t easy. Did you learn to chew gum without swallowing it? Did you learn to blow bubbles?  Can you whistle?  Can you snap your fingers?  In each of these things you probably failed a lot before succeeding. And then, after success, you realized you were the SAME PERSON YOU ALWAYS WERE BEFORE, it didn’t change you; just, you could do this new thing, over here.  It’s great.  It’s amazing.

This is true for you right now, going forward.

What is it that you are facing right now, that you need to do but you can’t do?  That you need to learn but you aren’t learning? That you need to see but you can’t see?  What’s frustrating you, now?

Life-long learning – it doesn’t stop when you leave “school”.  School is just a man-made environment to learn a limited set of stuff; you need to learn a LOT more things to succeed in your life.  I know that, and you probably do too.

What exciting things did you learn last year?  You may have learned things that don’t work, in addition to things that do work.  What are they?

What exciting things are you going to learn this year?  You can consciously choose a set of things you want to learn or do, this year, that you’ve never done before.

The benefit of choosing the things you want to learn/do this year, rather than letting life choose them for you, is that you will fight against them less.  Because you chose them. They came from you.

Unbelievably, life will get our of your way if you are learning and working hard and focusing on areas of your life that you are legitimately lacking, things you want to get better at, and you are putting in the work to try to do them.  Life doesn’t care whether you succeed or fail – just that you are trying.  Because from trying comes failure; and from failure comes success.  It’s strange how that works.

Life gets out of your way if you live a consciously driven life.  If you don’t, then life steps in and throws obstacles at you to help you grow and progress in your life.  So, actually, you don’t have a choice about learning new things.  You can live your life either way – your life can be steered by you, or steered by life itself.  It’s up to you.  You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to.  Until life makes you deal with things you never expected.

I strongly recommend cooperating with this overarching life system by choosing what you want to do, each month, each year, and consciously working on it.  Your life will be so much happier that way.  Mine is.  Because I choose what hard things I am going to work on each year, my car doesn’t break down very often; my health is pretty good, doesn’t cost a lot of money for medical bills; and my family and friends don’t constantly ask me for money; or if they do, I surprisingly have the extra available and I can sense when it is the right time to help them.

What I’m saying is this:

Life gets the hell out of your way when you are earnestly trying to take charge of your own progress in your life.

Life beats the shit out of you, throwing lots of new obstacles at you, when you are avoiding the challenges that you need to face in your life.

But don’t believe me, see for yourself.

Now, can you think of any good New Years Resolutions?

The choice is yours – choose wisely.

 

Participating in Great Projects

You can participate in great projects on the higher planes.  It’s really fun and feels so rewarding!

But you can only do that if you have a good foundation in your mind for the project – if you teach yourself the basics of whatever it is here in the physical world, then you can be of use on the higher levels related to that area. You will naturally tune in to the right people and projects and places on the higher levels in order to participate in projects involving the cutting-edge of that particular science, on those higher levels.

So: don’t be upset if you learn something on the physical plane that’s interesting to you and then you don’t end up using it here.  There was a reason you learned it.  Maybe you learned it NOT for this place, but for another place.

For example, let’s say you teach yourself a programming language, and write and debug a few silly throw-away programs for yourself to play around with the language until you clearly understand it; programs that you never release to the public, things you never share with anyone.  Doing that may have seemed pointless to you, but I assure you it’s not! You have fine-tuned your mental mechanism in a way that opens you up to accomplishing exciting things on higher planes, even if you never use that knowledge or ability in our physical world.

There can be amazing things going on in the higher levels, but if you didn’t build the requisite emotional and mental foundation for yourself, you cannot participate. So teach yourself new things down here, things that seem interesting to you. Practice new skills. Learn to dance or sing or paint. Learn how some aspect of modern communications actually works today. Learn modern things about medicine or biology; genetics, sub-atomic particles, encryption algorithms & digital signatures, crypto-currency and block-chain algorithms, solar power systems that can be used in third-world countries, water purification systems that require no electricity, new polymers and plastics, 3D printing advances, new clothing materials, properties of carbon nanotubes, the arctic seed vault, future voting systems with cross-checks and meta-moderation, new species of insects and plants discovered after the Mount St Helens volcano erupted, the future of quantum computing, where artificial intelligence is at now, how GPS knows where you are anywhere in the world.

You can teach yourself everything about these topics and so much more, thanks to the Internet, it’s really great for this; we’re so lucky to have the Internet today.  What’s interesting to you, that you’ve been thinking about researching?

Everything on this physical level has it’s higher equivalents on many higher levels.

Knowledge and experience are never wasted and never lost.

 

Pulling Back the Veil

Humanity is slowly pulling back the veil, learning the behind-the-scenes happenings, the how and why of things all around us in life.

First step: understand the people around you

  • understanding the news is lying to you.  You listen to the news, and cross-check against what actual people in those actual locations are saying about the same thing, on Twitter and Facebook and any other social media system you like to use.  What’s REALLY going on is very different than what you’re being told is going on.  Interesting.  See it for yourself.

  • understanding the weird goings-on of your local HOA – join the board of directors. Oh, wow, they’re just homeowners in my neighborhood like me?!?

  • understanding corporations – create your own company, it’s not that expensive, believe it or not. Learn to run your own business, it’s fun. Learn that customers don’t care about you or your product/service without serious amounts of marketing & advertising and providing way more value than you would think, for the money you’re asking.

  • understanding parenting – become one yourself. Every ex-child has views on the “right way to be a parent,” none of which applies when you’re actually there actually being a parent.  It’s harder than you might think. The fact that none of us are perfect plays a surprising part in the opera of parenthood.

  • understanding teachers – learn a skill so well that you start to teach it to others, so you become a teacher too. While teaching it, you realize how little you actually understand; teaching helps you reach the next level of understanding, from many points of view. It helps you learn how to explain something from the other person’s point of view, instead of your own.

  • understanding rich people (if you weren’t born that way) – learn about assets, good and bad debt, cashflow, balance sheets, true investments, the difference between running a true business vs self-employment – none of which was taught to you by our outdated farming/blue-collar oriented school system.

  • learn the WHY not just the HOW. Why are things the way they are?  There’s a reason. That doesn’t mean it has to be that way, but you need to understand the people who created it aren’t stupid – they did the best they could, and their (possibly) retarded result is the best thing they could come up with. Can you really do better, for everyone involved? If so, go for it.  We’re all rooting for you, believe me.

You might notice that most of these fit in with the idea of “be it and do it, to understand it.” Because that’s the best way to truly understand something – throw yourself into the middle of it and do your best in that arena. Then you can speak about it accurately, from personal experience. Some things are harder than you think, but equally more rewarding.

Second step: learn about nature and the world

  • learn about intuition in nature – the fauna and flora naturally have more connection to intuition than humanity has.

  • animals wisdom – friendship, joy, minimal response to threat, being with others unlike yourself, but also spending time relating to others that are like you.

  • people sensing motives of others, real needs, destination for all people. Understanding the differences in other people are OK, and supporting them, and helping them.

  • combined aura of all people as 1 person; where are the holes? what needs to be built still? what’s missing?

From that you will come the realization that all of life was created by a powerfully beautiful consciousness, more advanced than our own. It’s currently being maintained and guided and fine-tuned by that same consciousness.

Walking around in the world and seeing with your eyes becomes a new experience when you hold this realization in your mind – life begins to speak to you in a way it never did before. It’s happy that you’re becoming conscious of it, and wants to share its joy with you and show you funny & happy things.

Third step: pondering Humanity’s role in the world

Realizing you are part of Humanity, and Humanity is part of nature, part of the world, you start to wonder how we can fit naturally into all of this, harmoniously like all the other types of plants and animals that seem to live relatively harmoniously together, moreso than Humanity does today by far.

New roles and activities become clear about what Humanity should and shouldn’t be doing.  Life can become so much simpler, the way it is today for animals and plants, but on a whole new level, the Human level. Humanity can be the protectors of the other levels of life on this planet, and guide and balance all the factors using the rule of Least Interference resulting in Most Harmony.

Fourth step: integrating these realizations into practical action

Practical steps of doing, and not doing; having and not having; talking and not talking; cooperating and not cooperating – with other people, and all of nature. Practical tasks in line with your best understanding of what The Plan is for Humanity and the world.  Feedback loop where you analyze the results of your actions, and plan better and better actions going forward, making improvements, fine-tuning results.  Finding solutions to problems that are win-win for all people, and all of nature. Finding solutions to problems that cause nature and humanity to tend towards improvement, rather than fighting against the improvement – the way the minute-hand pointing straight up is in balance, but if it’s jostled it swings away from vertical; while the minute-hand pointing straight down is in balance, but if it’s jostled it returns to the same position naturally.

Humanity should be the Concierge, the Guardians of nature and of the world. It’s a great role of responsibility for us to take seriously. To be successful, Humanity needs to tune in to what the pure intention is for us and for the world, and take actions that fit in with that Plan. You will know that Humanity is tuning in properly to that Plan when everybody tuning in comes up with basically the same Plan (integrating/compatible actions within an overarching Plan).

Pulling Back the Veil – that covers our eyes, to see the true purpose for Humanity and the world.

We can do it, it just takes work.

When Once I was Overwhelmed with Life

There have been a number of moments in my life when I was completely fed up, filled to the top with the bullshit of life, I was completely done. It happens to all of us at one time or another. And I don’t know about you, but I’ve observed amazing, striking, things can happen in moments like that.

I can remember, maybe 10 years ago, the time I tried my best at work to convince a room full of people the right way of researching and solving a problem; and nobody would listen. A couple of people scoffed at me; and I shut up and shrunk down into my seat. Now, please understand that I am a talented software developer, I’ve been writing computer programs since age 13; and I’m 51 now.  I take software development very seriously, more seriously than most of my peers. This particular event happened when I was roughly 32 years old. I love programming and designing database layouts and data structures, algorithms, and software development concepts and procedures – to be the most clean, the most optimal, the fastest way to get things done properly and effectively.  I love changing the design when the requirements change; keep it clean and correct. Remove, as well as add. I love software design in general, I naturally think in software algorithms, and I spend my personal time keeping up with the latest technology, along with the many other things that interest me.

The room full of people were solving a problem in the simplest, worst, way; just to get done; just to move on to the next topic; the next emergency; the next event.  Big egos; they were proud. We are fast; who cares; we take shortcuts; we rock. It really pissed me off that they didn’t want to solve the immediate problem in the right and proper way. They didn’t care about the right user interface. Patch it quick and move on, that was the attitude; we can always “fix it later” (which would never happen, ever, during the 11 years I worked there; particularly because of their attitude towards how problems are solved). Never fix things because you know they need fixing; only fix things if the customer complains in such a way that your boss tells you to fix it.

After that meeting I was fed up. I couldn’t take it any more. I had to go on a demon drive after work that day. As I went racing down the freeway on-ramp near where I worked, merging onto the freeway at a speed far in excess of the other cars already on the freeway; swerving between cars all around me, racing forward, because I am young and skillful and irritated and energized and upset, heading towards another city that had stores that I wanted to visit and a restaurant I wanted to eat at for dinner that night; I literally shouted inside my empty car, my voice echoing in the small container, at the top of my lungs – “why are they that way? what are they thinking? why am I so different from all these fuckers? why am I here? what value do I contribute to this company? What value do they contribute to this company? Why don’t they get fired? Why do they all believe the same way that is not the right way? Why don’t they understand what I am talking about, or show any recognition of the value that I am presenting? Why don’t they all get fired? They aren’t meeting my view of the goal of the company. They aren’t doing it right. What really is going on?”

And I immediately got an answer.

Inside my mind some new thoughts that have never passed through my consciousness brushed against my brain.

The thoughts that occurred to me were as follows, very quickly in this order:

  • I am a completely different person than these people: they are engineers, and I am a scientist. My origin and goals are different from theirs.
  • An engineer is someone who takes all the existing things that have already been discovered by other people, learns about them, memorizes them, and applies them to solve problems.
  • A scientist studies the world around them, puts aside their preconceived notions and discovers new rules and laws of nature, new solutions, simplifications on what people currently do, new combinations nobody has ever thought of, new angles, the next step beyond, and it’s so obvious to them, and it’s so simple and easy for them to make this new thing, they think anybody should see this obvious easy thing.

And in that moment I realized: the Engineer never invents anything new. They only solve problems with what’s already available to them.  They have their “tools”.  They learned to use their tools. They were hired to use their tools. They are a worker, and workers need their tools. Without attending a “training class”, how could anyone learn a new tool? The job never expects them to use more than their tools. If they did, they would send them to a training class, to learn a new tool, then they could expect them to use the new tools – not, at any time, understanding the higher purpose behind what they’re doing.

The Scientist says “people keep saying THIS; but I don’t believe it. Let me research it myself, and see if it’s really true.”  “Oh wow, I just found out that this is the way it actually works; but why? Why is it that way? What if I change this, or that? what happens in these cases? Are there exceptions to those cases?  What if I mix other things in?  Combine things? Subtract something? Add something else? Try it a new way? What if I break it, and fix it, and erase it and draw it, and mix it and separate it, and combine it and extract it?  And lift it up? And put it down? And look from another angle? And see it from above? And view it from below? What if we don’t try to solve the problem this way at all; but a completely new way? Maybe it will fail; but maybe it will work? Let’s find out!”

An engineer learns something the first time someone tells it to them; by not questioning it, they learn it fast.

A scientist says “that’s new; I don’t know if I believe it; let me see if I can verify that. I need to hear it from 2 or 3 authorities, and research it myself.”  And thus, appears to learn more slowly than the Engineer.

A scientist says, “I have found a new way to do this, it’s much better than the old way.”

An engineer says, “that is not a proven way, it’s not a commonly accepted way, I’ve never heard of that; so I can’t use it.  Sorry.” The engineer says, “don’t change how things are done! It works, today! Don’t break what we already do!” without thinking thru the problem at all.

The scientist says, “but look! it’s so much better than the old/wrong way that everyone has been doing it all this time! And it makes more sense! Use your mind! You can clearly see this is a better way. Let’s at least try it, so you can see if it works.”

The engineer says, “If that’s so, then other people smarter than me would have thought about it before, and told me about it by now, I would have heard of it from some place other than you.  I don’t believe you.  Besides, I have a job to do, and I have these dumber, but more familiar tools, and everyone knows what to expect from me, and I know what to expect from me when I use these tools, whether they be adequate or inadequate; the expectation is met, and so everyone is happy, so I get paid.”

Then the scientist says:  “… well … Fuck.”  And the scientist wants to quit his job immediately.  And the engineer says: “…what a pretentious fuck.”

And the engineer goes to sleep at night, and dreams of sex, and self-centered things in the Astral plane.

And the scientist goes to sleep that night, and races off to the land of scientists, past the Astral plane to the Mental plane, all of whom share knowledge freely and process new information the way he does, and understand everything he talks about, and tell him new things, and listen carefully to him, and talk clearly, and build upon his ideas, and encourage him, and are happy to receive encouragement themselves, and there’s a feeling of real connection and real progress and real conclusion and perfection of ideas, and they accept him as their closest peer in all his comments and discoveries, and integrates everything he says immediately into what they already know and do, if it fits in any way with what they’re doing; and he does the same with everything they say and do; and conversations and ideas fly around very fast; and everyone learns new things and has lots of fun doing so; exploring, researching, sharing; and everyone is happy here and this world is such a beautiful healing place to live in.

And then the morning comes. The scientist wakes up back in the physical world. It’s a bit of a transition, every morning.  Sometimes the last memory is falling down into the dark clouds, sadly thinking, “do I really have to go down there again?” Sleepily awake he takes a shower, drinks some coffee, gets dressed, kisses his wife and kids and cat, grabs his day-planner, checks that he has enough business cards that say “senior application engineer” (which he should be proud of but actually feels embarrassed about), and heads back to work at the fifth company in 30 years that hired him for his engineering expertise. Because that’s where the jobs are, in today’s modern society. Today. Not 100 years ago. And not 100 years from now. Today, companies want engineers more than scientists.

A scientist is a scientist. He is not something else. He is only what he is.  Identify him.  Use him for the skills that he has. It will make him happy, and your department, your company will become greatly successful if you can recognize it and do it.

If you are a manager, don’t force scientists to become engineers. Don’t be so average, so middle-income, so middle-management that you can’t see their potential and build it and utilize it. Don’t limit your own potential at the company because you couldn’t utilize the amazing treasure you had placed before you in a more proper way. By just solving the immediate need for more engineers by hammering all pegs of any shape into the one square hole you see before you, you will always remain middle management, never reaching the level you wanted, because you didn’t understand and value the incredible people around you in their own unique ways; because you didn’t listen clearly to the training you were given in your corporate world about how to manage properly, because the highest people in the highest positions understand the true value of people but you failed to absorb it in your training, and so you will some day retire on a lesser-than possible income, and live a lesser-than-possible income all of the remainder of your life. Then some day you will pass away and go to the Astral plane, a place where you are ill prepared; and you will float around unconsciously, not doing anything of use to anyone, not even for yourself, and eventually be reborn like a blank slate to do it all over again instead of actually making something out of yourself 500 years from now.

I’m sorry but some of us don’t have time for that.

 

Future May Hold

As the year 2016 begins, here are 10 things that I’ve been thinking about – things the future may hold for Humanity:

  1. A new money system – value rooted in useful cooperative behavior, not products. Each person can have more/less money independently from other people, countries, and economic conditions.  Money is not moderated by any government. Money is created by acts of good will and useful work and action, and varies in quantity as the need varies. People will be able to stop any fear of losing housing, or worries about obtaining food and clothing; they will have all the basic necessities of life.

  2. Truly understanding the cost of war – so that we sensibly stop wasting vast amounts of resources, money, human lives, and eliminate massive amounts of pain and agony and bad-will, reducing separatism between the different nations of the planet.

  3. Truly understanding the benefits of cooperation and respect between nations, to such a degree that we don’t have to have national borders any longer; no passports, no check points. All Human beings will be allowed to visit any city or country on Earth, without restriction.

  4. New level of art, created to inspire and uplift people from a mundane existence. Art created from the highest heart, rather than the solar plexus or self-serving ego. Art that meets you in the lowest places you find yourself, and uplifts you to your next level, whatever that may be. And art that uplifts you from there, even higher. A fresh understanding of Beauty, and respect for the healing qualities of Beauty.

  5. A carport with four electric cars for every house: one small car to zip around locally (energy saving); two medium sized cars for both husband & wife, or any 2 partners, to drive around separately whenever they need to; and one big vehicle for hauling loads of whatever needs to be moved.  The single carport for these four vehicles will look like an “X”, with the top space within the “X” containing the smallest car, and the bottom space in the “X” containing the largest car; and the two regular sized cars fitting into the left and right sides of the “X”.

  6. People will figure out how to communicate with loved ones telepathically – audio and visual.  This will eliminate the fear of death, and help people understand the law of reincarnation – how it works, and why.  The general population will understand the basic cycle of birth and death and rebirth, the various levels of existence, and exactly how many human souls there are now, both in and out of incarnation.  It will also help to expand people’s view of “loved ones” to encompass more than just their immediate family & friends in this life; it will encompass everyone on the planet.

  7. People will understand the spiritual development mechanisms within Humanity, accurately understand their own level of development, and consciously work on their next level of development. This will be commonly accepted and encouraged.

  8. You will consider every stranger your closest friend by default. You will only avoid contact with a person if they have proven themselves to be bad or mean towards you in some way; you’ll consider that a one-off, an exception to the general behavior of humanity. This will actualize the ultimate American dream, that people are innocent until proven guilty, emotionally and mentally as well as physically (something we do not have today, even in America).

  9. A true understanding of win-win scenarios, why they are better than win/lose; and how to create win-win situations and avoid win/lose and the lose/lose traps that humanity has suffered from in the recent past. This is a science that can be taught and learned, and it will be taught in all schools and learned by all children.

  10. People will figure out how to fly safely with their own bodies, no vehicles needed.

I really feel like these are achievable aims for all of Humanity over the next many years.  Some of these things may take hundreds of years, some maybe 500 or one thousand; but all of these things are completely achievable.  Open yourself up to these possibilities, and see what kind of progress you can make in yourself and engender in others, related to these goals, during the next year.  You might be surprised.
