There is no path back to God

will's picture

There is no path back to God. This seems like such an incorrect thing to say, doesn't it? I'm sure you've been told that everyone is on the path back to God, but I'm going to say something very different, there is no path back to God. Why? Simple, because you were never separate in the first place.

If you want to transcend the illusion, begin by dropping all your assumptions, everything you've been taught. You're not going to see past the illusion by basing your quest upon an illusion, yet this is exactly where so many spiritual seekers start. You begin with the belief that you're separate from God, and you have to do something to get back to God. This is the core of much of what we call “spirituality” and you're given all these things to do to get back to God, but it's based upon a lie.

You are not separate from God, never were, never will be. It's an impossibility, God Is Omnipresence, Creator and Creation. Separation isn't possible, but believing you are separate is, and everything you believe, everything you think you know, is what makes up your illusion.

You have to understand the nature of experience, and the mental synthesis of experience, known as knowledge. How can Oneness see Oneness when Oneness Is All There Is? In the Higher Realms there's no space, no time, no experience as we know it. To see Oneness, you have to take a “step back”, but that's impossible since Oneness Is All There Is, so an illusion is needed, an illusion of something other than Oneness, an illusion of separation.

Transcendent Fractal Art ~ High-Resolution Downloads

will's picture

How does one communicate what it's like to experience the Transcendent? There simply aren't any words, I could write all day long and never even come close to really capturing the wealth of feelings that come from directly experiencing the realms of Spirit. Art does a far better job of expressing what words cannot, and that's the intent behind the fractal art I'm now sharing.

These are meant to convey a sense of wonder and mystery. They represent something just outside the “normal” realms of perception. Being fractals, they have a mind-blowing level of complexity, the patterns repeat infinitely, and what these images display is only the tip of the iceberg.

These are created with a program called Apophysis 7x, which uses Scott Draves' fractal flame algorithm. While they're based upon some rather complex math, my creation process is more intuitive than logical. I don't necessarily have an image in mind when I'm creating them, it's more a process of exploration and discovery. Many of my favorites came through “happy accidents” where a seemingly small change resulted in something entirely new.

Stop Projecting Yourself Into The Future

will's picture

We're nearing the end of 2015, and it seems like the end of the year always brings “end of the world” types of predictions. This year it's supposed to happen sometime in this month, September. Exactly what is supposed to happen varies depending on who you ask. I've heard everything from predictions of mass ascension, to the return of Niburu, to Russia/China ushering in some sort of political revolution. Of course, all that stuff has become pretty standard now, these are all things that have been predicted many times before. It's interesting to see who jumps on the bandwagon, telling people all their problems will be solved in the near future is an easy way to get attention since it's something most people really want to believe.

Maybe the Galactic Free Press should take bets on the world ending? We'll give you 100 to 1 odds, imagine how rich you could be if the world really does end! You can place you bets through our legal firm, the offices of Dewey, Cheatem, and Howe...

It's easy to see the appeal of projecting yourself into the “future”, you can make up anything you want! You can be rich, powerful, famous, Enlightened, all those things and more... This is why so many people spend so much of their time “living” in the “future”. You can imagine all your desires while escaping the reality of the Now.

Of course, when change is in the future, it can remain there indefinitely. Tomorrow is always a day away, and waiting for change, especially when it depends on someone or something else, is a very effective way of avoiding change.

The Ego Wants To Be Crucified

will's picture

Ego sure gets plenty of abuse nowadays, I always see people talking about how nasty it is, how the ego is the source of all our problems. It's become the black sheep of the spiritual community, and you know what? The ego loves this.

The ego wants to be blamed for everything, that way it still gets to be the center of attention. It wants  to be abused, it's like an unruly child, negative attention is better than no attention at all.

The ego is both the abuser and the abused, it is the sadist and the masochist. It's certainly not your Divine Self that fights against the ego. Don't just passively read this and believe it though, you have to catch it happening within yourself to truly understand. Look carefully at which part of yourself struggles against the ego.

Our society views suffering as something noble, something purifying. People hate suffering, but at the same time they defend their suffering. You don't want to suffer, but at the same time you don't think you deserve to be happy. It's part of the madness of duality. We think the cure is somewhere hidden within the poison. No wonder real healing is so difficult for most people.

This is all rooted in our cultural mythologies, and we think we've transcended that kind of stuff in our modern culture but it remains buried deep within the subconscious. We've been given this image of God incarnate who is hated and abused by humanity. Then somehow, through his murder, humanity is “purified”. Doesn't make any sense to me, but people take this interpretation very seriously, whether or not they believe it's true.

Running Away From Yourself

will's picture

At first glance this seem like an impossibility, how could you run away from yourself? However, it's something we've all learned to do, we pick up the habit in our youthful innocence without really understanding where it will lead. We run from ourselves to try to escape from our unhappiness, we seek out distractions from the ways we feel. It seems to work very well in the short run, but it's a subtle poison. It numbs our pain, but it numbs our joy as well.

Of course you don't want to feel pain, nothing wrong with that, and I'm certainly not encouraging masochism here. It's just that many of the ways we've learned to deal with our suffering actually help to perpetuate it, here's a very common example:

Someone says something that offends you, and I'm sure this happens daily to most people. Now you take on this emotion and it doesn't feel good, so you seek to distract yourself from this feeling. In our modern society we have countless options for this. You could go eat a pint of ice cream to distract from the offense you feel, and then go watch television to distract yourself from the queasiness and guilt you feel over eating a pint of ice cream! So easy it is to compound more unhappiness through avoidance of unhappiness...

From Dependence to Independence to Interdependence

will's picture

We begin our lives being almost wholly dependent upon our parents, especially our mothers. This is how it works for everyone, from the beggar on the street to the Queen of England, we start out helpless and unable to survive on our own. Gradually, we start to take care of ourselves more and more, until one day we're able to live on our own. We become independent, or so it seems...

Here in America, you get your own job, your own car, your own house, and now you're free to live your life. You're an independent, hard-working adult and a contributing member of society. Except there's a problem here. If you're like most people, you begin your “independence” enormously in debt. If you don't pay the bank, that house and car that seem to belong to you will be taken away, and by force if needed. The bank that was so friendly when they stood to profit off of you will suddenly become your worst enemy. If things like your transportation and shelter depend upon paying someone else, how independent can you say you are? If your whole lifestyle depends upon you keeping your job, are you sure you're really independent?

Even if you're already wealthy, consider this: What you flush down the toilet, it just magically disappears, right? The way people behave, that's almost what it seems like, but no, someone actually has to deal with your shit. Same with the garbage you throw away. The gas that your car, how many people worked hard to bring that to you? Same with your food, water, clothing, all the things you depend upon for survival, they came from other people, didn't they?

The Astral Manipulation of the Collective Unconsciousness

The astral realm may seem like some vague, faraway place, but it's actually far closer than you think. In fact, the majority of people spend most of their waking hours living halfway within the astral plane without even realizing it.

Your mind isn't separate from all the other minds in the world, and your mind is itself part of the astral plane. All minds exist in a subset of the astral called the mental realm. When you focus upon the “past”, your consciousness shifts to a part of the astral realm that stores memories, and there's a collective aspect of this called the Akashic Records. When you focus upon the “future”, you project yourself onto the astral and you visualize your desires in your own little section of it.

There's much talk about the Collective Consciousness, which is a very wonderful thing where everyone can work together to manifest beautiful dreams. Only problem is that it requires Consciousness, something collectively lacking at the moment. Instead, most people operate through the collective unconsciousness, a kind of nightmare where people work together to manifest what they don't want. The collective unconsciousness is full of struggle, pain and conflict, which is reflected in the life of the individual. Nobody really suffers alone either, you carry the whole of Humanity along with you, in both suffering and in joy.

Science Comes Full Circle

will's picture

One of the foundations of modern science is that if something cannot be measured, cannot be observed and verified, it may as well not exist. Science at least attempts to deal with tangible things, such as Newtonian physics, while less tangible things, like the human mind, start to create problems. Scientists strive to be objective, but the human mind is subjectivity itself.

There's debate as to whether the study of the mind, psychology, even qualifies as science. It doesn't help that a lot of what used to masquerade as good psychology is verifiably false. Many of Freud's theories were never proven, but that didn't stop psychologists from treating them like objective facts. That's how religions get created, not how science is supposed to work.

Now science wants to be objective while the mind itself is biased, and it can't help but be biased. Because of this, science tries to steer clear of the human mind as much as possible, while simultaneously being wholly dependent upon the human mind. Science itself was born from the mind, and science itself has no objective existence, it only “exists” within human minds. It's purely subjective objectivity, but that thought creates so much cognitive dissonance within most scientists that they can't help but ignore it.
