“We have only this moment,
sparkling like a star in our hand...
and melting like a snowflake.”

Express the Source

"Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men, we didn’t have any kind of prison. Because of this, we had no delinquents. Without a prison, there can be no delinquents. We had no locks nor keys and therefore among us there were no thieves. When someone was so poor that he couldn’t afford a horse, a tent or a blanket, he would, in that case, receive it all as a gift. We were too uncivilized to give great importance to private property. We didn’t know any kind of money and consequently, the value of a human being was not determined by his wealth. We had no written laws laid down, no lawyers, no politicians, therefore we were not able to cheat and swindle one another. We were really in bad shape before the white men arrived and I don’t know how to explain how we were able to manage without these fundamental things that (so they tell us) are so necessary for a civilized society.”
John (Fire) Lame Deer, Sioux Lakota, 1903-1976.

The Sword of Truth

This was inspired by a recent Secret Sun post.

What got me into the ancient Mysteries and Esotericism and so on, was an insatiable hunger to know, to think, to put the pieces together, to understand. This is what got me started into all this and I assume the same applies to all of you.

All this ancient traditions are like a science of how to connect to this Spiritual Source within. It's a mind program that allows the "sacred marriage" to occur (mind and heart), Gnosis, awakening etc. It's a mind program that provides freedom from the false mind program, or the "Distortion" as Neil Kramer puts it.

Free your Ego

Vader: the Shadow within, the masks we use, fear
This post was inspired by this very interesting podcast:

Spirit Science Podcast, Episode 1: The Ego… Friend or Foe??

You can't play your Playstation game without a control pad. In the same way you can't experience life without an ego. You may starve it, flat it, try to kill it, but it will remain until the day we die.

To me it is much more relevant and interesting the fact that most people in general are still holding on to an old paradigm that has brought a lot of suffering and injustice. Why do we continue the harmful behaviour towards others, nature and ourselves? Why the passivity, submission, acceptance of so much corruption and stupidity?
