The Most Startling Idea of All

There is a startling idea which once rightly comprehended, shatters all illusions. This one single idea is so Earth shattering, so extraordinary, so revolutionary,  that everything that comes after it represents a remarkably different phase of life to that which came before. This is so because in one sense it involves the disappearance of the universe. Just imagine, if gold from a safe were to disappear, well . . . that would be a mystery, but if the entire universe disappeared that would represent the greatest mystery of all. Of course this is the level of mystery we are talking about here.

It must be of such great interest at this time that the polar opposites of religion and science have now found an accord in this Earth shattering idea. A clue.  This indicates that the human story is about to reach, to break through to a very new and interesting place. For the human story will by definition require the creative tension of opposites to continue. And so does the mystery deepen. The new perspective; the new position that we are about to discover; into which our consciousness is about to emerge – will inevitably amaze us all. So what is this most startling idea?

The startling idea is that the universe is not of material origin at all, but a material construction whose origin is consciousness. And there it goes, it vanishes in a puff of smoke. This is the conclusion of both spiritual revelation and quantum theory. The revolutionary realization is that we are . . . simply our-SELF. Nothing more, nothing less. In the deeper sense we are simply pure consciousness, unburdened by all of the cultural and constructed meanings, beliefs, references and ideas. All of the constructions which purport to bring us closer to ourselves such as religion, politics, education and many subtle forms of social and psychic conditioning may bring us to look at aspects of self, however just at the point where we are ready to realize that we are simply ourselves, all these things just get in the way. Knowing this you may have concluded that you are close to experiencing directly that you are . . . simply yourself. Then experience away! FREE from the burden of the cosmic or psychic bureaucracy.

The sobering fact, is that there is always the final journey.  We must ever and always walk the last mile home on our own.  That is not to suggest that God-Goddess or the angels or the saints are not with us. It is rather to suggest that to enter the deeper truth of who we are – simply ourselves – we must ultimately abandon the hierarchical, bureaucratic and institutional frameworks which purport to represent the truth and become that truth. This is why the master Jesus was able to truthfully declare I am the way and the truth and the light. He had somehow managed to experience himself as simply (him) self. It is the point at which the bud of individuality upon the human tree of consciousness bursts forth as the flower. 

There is a paradox here because in order to get to that place generally we require some schooling, processes, the guidance that religions provide, lots of techniques . . . and so forth. But one day finally and at last we, each of us, must find our metaphorical Bodhi tree under which we shall sit, if not in open defiance of all institutionalized forms of learning, certainly in distinction to them and quite often in contradiction to them. The great paradox of liberated blasphemy. It is the intensely personal and revelatory journey represented so beautifully in the life story of St Francis of Assisi. He goes to Rome – the very symbol of institutional religion, as a bare footed beggar to present his revolutionarty and revelatory understanding to the Pope. If you have ever seen the beautiful film by Franco Zeferelli – Brother Sun Sister Moon, you will know well the outcome. Below are a few St Francis quotes that demonstrate his clear, present and radical consciousness. These are combined with statements attributed to some of our other great teachers. They stand in distinction to much of the old consciousness and constructions of the Kali Yuga, the Iron Age of ignorance. These words of wisdom point to new levels of consciousness and understanding which more people than ever are now demonstrating. The whole point is to get to that place where you can finally and at last speak this wisdom fresh with each breath of life within the living breathing cosmos. Here then is a sample from St Francis and others, remembering that one day you will make up your own in each moment of life.

Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible. – St Francis

All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him. – Buddha

I am formless and everywhere – Shirdi Sai Baba

With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible – Jesus

You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection – Buddha

Get on with your worldly activities cheerfully, but do not forget God – Shirdi Sai Baba

Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words. St Francis

All that you see taken together is Myself – Shirdi Sai Baba

The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart – Buddha

Lord, grant that I might not so much seek to be loved as to love. St Francis

If you have men who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men – St Francis

God has agents everywhere and their powers are vast – Shirdi Sai Baba

You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free – Jesus

God is not so far away. He is not in the heavens above, nor in hell below. He is always near you – Shirdi Sai Baba

You have no cause for anything but gratitude and joy – Buddha

Hatred does not cease by hatred but only by love. This is the eternal rule – Buddha

We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world – Buddha

Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth

According to your faith be it unto you – Jesus

Resonance Reproductive the Female Physique?

4 09 2012

Calla Lillies by Georgia O’Keeffe

VAGINA

One word says it all really. Vagina. Naomi Wolf is generating a new wave of awareness with a new meme. Granted vagina is not a new word to the English language but when Wolf gets her literary freak on it’s a case of look out world coz here she comes . . . again! So to speak. It was Wolf of course who arrested the attention of not just the literary but indeed also the feminist world with her book The Beauty Myth published in the early ’90s. You may recall it was hailed as a landmark feminist work by no less than Gloria Steinem and Germaine Greer. No mean feat we must imagine. The appearance of ahem . . . Vagina demonstrates on the one hand that the very word still makes many people nervous if not downright neurotic. On the other hand your Quantum detective discerns something stirring in the deeper realms of the great collective psyche with the advent of not just Vagina, but also breast and well . . .Vagina again! If the feminine resonance means anything to ya this is fascinating fare full of fun and flowing symbolism. Perhaps an explanation is in order. Shall we take a walk in the flowering quantum garden with dazzling water feature?

Your Quantum detective couldn’t help but notice that just after the release of Wolfe’s new book Vagina a story appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald concerning a scholarly review on the science of breast biomechanics by University of Wollongong academic Julie Steele.  Given the release of these two literary products being so close together and all they must then have been in production for a considerable period of overlap. And then there’s the little matter of an advertising campaign in this country (Australia) in which the word Vagina was dared used on television. It was simply too much for some. Minds closed. Some positively boggled at the prospects of resultant chaos and disorder while Cardinal Jensen predicted for the third time in a week the fall of Western civilization. Obviously he just hasn’t been paying attention.

But it all means something you see. When the female reproductive organs are just so in the news, in the media and in your head . . it means something. It is of course deeply symbolic. Perhaps the cosmos is ready to give birth to something . . .new. It is after all on everyone’s lips. The lips of those in the know. The lips of the left-wing (read feminine) philosophers of the New Age have been giving birth to a new sound for a while now. It’s time for a change they are saying. Be the Change they say. The time has come they say over and over again. Quite the chant du jour. Let’s see what emerges in the mind of the Quantum Goddess. This should be more than just slightly interesting.

If We Had An Empathic Connection With Nature

Art Symbol Nature Man

The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World

“I can think of no one else who could have conceived, let alone written a book of such penetrating brilliance”

These are the words that David Lorimer uses to conclude his review of Iain McGilchrist’s landmark work The Master and his Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World. If Lorimer’s praise is justified then here we have a rare and precious jewel in the treasury of wisdom for our times. There is intellectual muscle in the review as there must also be in the book, which is as yet unread by your correspondent. Not to worry, it has certainly gone to the top of the list of must reads. Clearly the book should become compulsory reading for all school graduates who are about to embark either on a career or off to study in one of the universities, which are clearly nothing of the sort. The point being if our universities really were offering and providing UNIVERSAL education as the term would suggest, then this book would not have been required in it’s current form. What they mostly provide is Marxism, materialism and a kind of hyper-masculinised intellectual bullying. 

McGilchrist himself provides arguments that are pleasingly nuanced, which you can prove for yourself by watching a short address he gives on the ideas in his book in the video embedded below. A sample of Lorimer’s review follows immediately below.

The divided brain of the title indicates that human beings have two distinctive takes on the world, mediated by the left and right hemispheres respectively. There are evolutionary reasons, explained in the book, for why this should be the case, right the way through the animal kingdom.

Iain explains that the right hemisphere gives the overall context, apprehends things as a whole and is able to take in the new. The proper cooperation of the hemispheres involves the grounding and integrating role of the right hemisphere, with detail added by the left hemisphere and returned to the right for a further integration, or, as the Germans put it, Aufhebung. This means that philosophy should begin and end in the right hemisphere rather than being a purely left hemisphere activity as it tends to be, especially in Oxford. A particularly striking chapter argues for the primacy of the right hemisphere, an idea which may initially come as a surprise to the reader, who is used to hearing the left brain referred to as the dominant hemisphere. The primacy of the right hemisphere implies the primacy of the whole over the part, of the implicit over the explicit and of experience over abstraction.

Here then is some support for the notion of what is being referred to within the walls of this blog as The Quantum Goddess  from the halls of higher learning and knowledge, which in this case is All Souls College Oxford. What is most interesting is that in the book: A particularly striking chapter argues for the primacy of the right hemisphere . . . Well alright then! That means on the one hand . . . from a theological perspective, we really, really . . . really need to start exploring the feminine divine, the goddess, the Divine Sophia. God as a Girl and not just as a boy – PRIMARILY. On the other hand of course there is the little matter of our hyper masculinised world-view which has been running us. What goes hand-in-hand with the super macho thing is OF COURSE misogyny – hatred of the feminine.

OF COURSE plenty of people in the real world are starting to try on the flowing garments of the Goddess for size. Just not it would seem, those in power. Those who are gaily legislating on the ongoing murder, death and destruction of large swathes of the environment for example. No cross-dressing in the halls of power amongst our male business, (fundamentalist) religious, and political leaders. The female pollies and business types can keep masquerading as women for the time being. Hmph!

Admittedly this is not as simplistic as  . . .Love is a warm puppy. Warm puppies have their place, and so does the salvaging of the way we currently conceive life, the universe and everything. As proclaimed on the banner of this blog We need a refreshing change. If anyone is looking for some powerful and resounding intellectualism to support the current imperative for The Great Turning . . .you will have it with  The Master and his Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World – in buckets full. Go on then and READ YOUR HEAD OFF. Or . . .you can even watch an introduction by Mr McGilchrist hisself on the computer telly below. Possibly the most significant bit of audio-visual so far . . .ever. Eh?!!! What’s that you say? This is like watching the Goddess deliver a lecture on the telly. You better watch it.





Quantum Goddess and The Rise of The Machines

18 07 2012

The Tree of Life

You are so much more than a computer

An article in the  Sydney Morning Herald today – Rise of The Machines July 18, 2012 – starts out straightforwardly enough. But reading further we see that the messenger is indeed a carrier of the very meme-virus he is warning us about. Reduction of  Humans to the level of Machines.

One of the founding engineers of Kaaza and Skype  Jaan Tallin is in Australia warning about the threat that computers pose to the future of humankind. While this is def scary it is certainly nothing new.  After all Sun Microsystems founder Bill Joy caused a storm of controversy when he said the same thing (and with a fair bit more of the desired complexity) in an article in Wired Magazine titled: Why The Future Doesn’t Need Us in April 2000.

So here’s the thing. Anyone who is watching the horizon of humanity’s venture into a future filled with all kinds of possibilities, would well and truly know by now that the Rise of The Machines is one of the biggest threats we face. The line is after all taken from the very popular Terminator series.  But Jaan Tallin gives himself away as a bit a machine head himself. Here’s a quote from the article

“Once you acknowledge that human brains are basically made of atoms and acknowledge that atoms are governed by simple laws of physics then there is no reasoning principle why computers couldn’t do anything that people are doing and we don’t really see any evidence that this is not the case,” said Tallinn.

Oh Boy. Here we go again. Well Mr Tallin, it seems that you have in one simple statement reduced the human-being to the machine-being. Admittedly when you say that human brains are basically made of atoms, this is ambiguous. But you have not suggested anywhere that human beings might have souls. The implication of your statement is rather to the contrary. And this you see is the real problem. For there is something that machines can’t do that human beings can do and that is to create miracles.

One of the greatest observers of the human condition in our written history – Rodolf Steiner – has advanced arguments since the early part of the 20th Century that there are three basic forces that shape human evolution. These are 1) The Christos 2) The Luciferic and 3) Ahrimanic (what we think of today as Satan). Contrary to the fundamentalist Christian doctrine the Luciferic and the Ahrimanic should not be  considered as merely evil per se. Apparently their influence represents a point of evolution at which humanity overcomes evil and transcends it. The “evil” forces have their part to play in human spiritual evolution.  The problem arises when they get out of balance in human affairs. As they are trying to do today.

According to the Steiner school of thought which supports an enlightened and loving type of Christian or Gnostic occultism called Anthroposophy . . .the Ahrimanic Forces are active wherever we see people attempting to reduce the human being to the level of atoms and nothing more. This point of view has more or less ruled most academic and scientific thought for the past hundred years or so. It has produced a level of thinking in the halls of our most learned establishments which is pretty much on track for the kind of future that Hitler had planned for human kind. Enslavement, suppression, destruction and human lives lacking in any kind of dignity. This is the materialist, reductionist path. Jaan Tallin is right to fear it. The irony is that he is now representing it with his statements.

This is the paradoxical nature of affairs that we have come to. And furthermore one risks ridicule from the powers that be when one speaks out for the truth that the Christos represents because many powerful and learned people presume to know that which they do not. This is defined as arrogance.

A brilliant book which was 20 years in the making, explains how our “left hemisphere” brain thinking has come to dominate the world-view of academics and scientists. You can read a coherent and concise description of this Quantum-Goddess work (better than a master-work!) on the following link.The book’s title is The Master and his Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World Thanks to and courtesy of The Scientific and Medical Network. And thanks to the comment by Jan (see Comments this post) – for sharing this information.

So where does the Quantum Goddess come into all of this? Well according to the Steiner school and others besides, modern day Christianity has more or less lost the feminine aspect of the Divine and consequently has more or less lost the plot. The feminine aspect is referred to as The Divine Sophia. Now, you don’t have to engage in Medieval Worship routines to honor and bring that energy into your life. What you CAN start doing is to move away from mechanistic and reductionist levels of thinking and behaviours. This enslaves the human spirit.

Start treating each person, plant and animal with respect, consideration and an in-the-moment consciousness of love that honors the intimacy of every moment. You see, machines are incapable of that. And when you honor the intimacy of every moment, you are by definition not being arrogant, you are now being truly humble, because you are seeing every moment as being the brand new moment of creation that it is. Here’s a nice little prayer to Sophia from Sophis Goddess of Wisdom by Katia Romanoff.

The Hail Sophia

Hail Sophia, filled with Light, the Christ is with thee. Blessed art thou among the Aeons and blessed is the liberator of thy Light, Jesus. Holy Sophia, Mother of all Gods, pray to the Light for us thy children, now and in the hour of our death, Amen.

You can say it without having to feel foolish and yes it will invoke the very electronic and sub-atomic presence of the Quantum Goddess. That’s because the magic is in YOU. Of course. The Atom Heart Mother is in you and you are in her. Change can happen instantly. Growth takes forever.  Re the video below . . I tried to find something worthwhile on the Divine Sophia on Youtube. Maybe i didn’t look hard enough. This is an excellent production that ties together Quantum Theory, Sacred Geometry and the very relevant information relating to the suppression of the feminine. A must see production for our times.





Emergence of The Quantum Goddess

14 07 2012

Quantum Goddess of Oneness

The rEvolutionary Goddess

One of the favourite themes of The Lime Flavoured rEvolution is the disappearance of The Goddess. Why did she disappear? And how? Goddess cults and religions were once widespread throughout the world –  Europe, Asia, The whole of the Americas, Africa. But now we have the male Gang of Four. Jesus, Buddha, Moses and Mohammed. There is  no disrespect intended in this observation to any of our great recent spiritual teachers. However if we have any scintilla of concern over our relationship to the Divine we MUST ask ourselves. . .what happened to the Goddess?

The Goddess would seem to have disappeared, but could it be that rather than The Goddess disappearing, humanity’s consciousness has changed? Perhaps this accounts for the apparent change in the world. Perhaps it is the case that The Goddess hasn’t disappeared. Perhaps we have just stopped seeing her. As we look at the entire notion of evolution it could be, that rather than evolving to where we are now . . .that we have devolved . . .devolved to the point where God became for us MANish . . .vengeful, angry and above all male.

This idea that God is a Male; God the Father . . . is deeply incorrect. It is truly a sacrilege. If you have any sense of the scope of the Divinity then it will not be hard to see in this devolution the agency of the Luciferic. This is closely aligned to what Steiner refers to as the Ahrimanic force – the anti-Christ. This means in spiritual terms, the counter evolutionary forces. To balance this sacrilege of creating God in the image of masculine Man we need at the very least, to balance our address to God as Father-Mother God, or as God-Goddess.  The fact is that we live in a scientifically rigorous world which has created a particular distortion of the truth. In terms of materialistic science there is no mapping of consciousness.  Now there is a bearded fool up the back wanting to argue this. Is it possible for a bearded fool to listen to the wisdom of the heart?

With the advent of Quantum Theory, we could start to think about and engage with the Quantum Goddess and the miraculous implications for humanity that this offers. Miracles now on special. The Lime Flavoured rEvolution has no ostensible, worldly connection with the video below. How should we evaluate it? Gee whiz the inner tuition you carry with you is one place to start. Oh . . .but that’s not scientific enough is it?

The bright illuminated men of the enlightenment may groan at this. The flowing feminine divine within human consciousness has been practicing great patience with your intellectual chauvinism and suggests a renewed and contemporary consideration. As they say, the The past is history, the future a mystery. Today is a GIFT and that is why they call it the PRESENT. Come present and see what is in front of you oh great men of science. But will these illuminated beings . . .literally the Luciferic ones, fail to understand and continue in their arrogance? So may it be with Love. Whatever happens over the next 50 years, it is clear that WE NEED A REFRESHING CHANGE. Just ask the kids: Have you touched a tree today? And see the wonder in their eyes. How did we lose our soul so emphatically and catastrophically?

Transit of Venus – The Goddess Awakens – What Revolution?

Transit of Venus

Right now, if God were to suddenly assume human form; just morph right out of the Sistine Chapel ceiling – Megaphone in hand – and give Vatican tourists a rousing burst of the news, we shouldn’t be surprised.  And they might even see a lady up there rather than a man. Shock, horror. Yes God could just as accurately be described as a Woman as a Man. The Goddess is due for Earthly re-presentation after a couple thousand years of totalitarian, war mongering MALE, Angry God Guff. Let’s do it.

The Heavens could hardly speak more clearly than with the Transit of Venus that is happening while this is being written. And with the end of the world as we know it imminent on the 21st December this year – you could be forgiven for wandering the streets in a sandwich board declaring: the Goddess is back. Look out blokes!

If there was one phrase that seems to sum up the whole thing it might be: Change and revolution is happening now. This transit of Venus is brought to you by the Awakening of The Divine Feminine. Now, I don’t want to sound the scary naysayer because this is mostly about compassion, tolerance, kindness and understanding . . .but if you (still)  represent the forces of Rape of the Earth complete with blueprinted maps of Coal Seem Gas wells, (choose you mindless masculine desecration of the the earth symbol) detailed business plans and other instruments of logic and torture . . . You should probably be concerned. Peace, Love Muesli and The Goddess. Time for Lime.
