An Extraterrestrial's Guide to Understanding Earthlings

will's picture

This is a guide for newly arrived ET's to help catch them up on the state of affairs on our beautiful planet Earth. Note that it may be slightly insulting to any terrans reading it who are emotionally invested in the current state of their world.

Welcome to Planet Earth! This planet is home to roughly 7 billion human beings, and an enormous variety of other amazing species whom they share the planet with, though many of the other species numbers are rapidly declining. Oddly, the humans don't seem to understand they're a part of the ecosystem and they exploit the overall health of the planet for short-term conveniences. The humans, who have this amazing potential to be conscious stewards of the planet, instead treat it as some disposable resource.  They have this expression "don't bite the hand that feeds you" yet they don't seem to grasp the meaning of it.

Human beings still fight with, and even kill, each other. Many follow this dubious system of morality that says it's okay to fight and kill, so long as a government or religion condones it. They rely upon external systems of morality and these systems are manipulated by their leaders for their leaders own gain.

And how are their leaders chosen? Through something called politics which, as far as I can tell, is this special system of rhetoric specifically designed to use as many words as possible to say nothing at all. It has this amazing ability to make people who listen to it stupider, and if anyone tries to discuss politics with you, I recommend blocking your auditory senses while chanting the mantra, "la la la la la la la, can't hear you".

Kundalini Activation - or - WTF Is Happening To My Body?!?

will's picture

We see this fairly often, a person goes through an intense spiritual or transcendent experience, and afterwards they begin having some very strange things happen to them. They may start having sensations of intense heat or energy flowing through their body. They may start hearing tones, often very high-pitched. Their body may begin to feel like it's vibrating, or they may feel pressure in their forehead. It's common for people to believe they're going insane or even dying when this stuff starts to happen, but don't worry, all this is actually quite normal for a being who has chosen to raise their Consciousness, and it's called Kundalini activation.

Now the term Kundalini itself is tied up with the various Hindu religions and also a number of Western mystery schools. As such, there's a lot of conflicting beliefs about Kundalini and a lot of people who will tell you the "right" and "wrong" ways of going about it. I'm going to steer clear of all that stuff as much as possible, and simply share what I can confirm from my own experiences.

The first thing to understand is how the chakras work. There are seven main chakras that are aligned with your spine. One at the very base of your spine (root chakra), one a little below your belly button (sacral chakra), one a little above your belly button (solar plexus chakra), one in the center of your chest (heart chakra), one in your throat (throat chakra), one in your forehead (ajna chakra or 3rd eye), and one at the very top of your head (crown chakra). Each chakra corresponds to something different, for example the throat chakra has to do with communication, among other things. There's a number of websites that do an excellent job explaining which chakra corresponds to what so I wont bother going into detail here (here's one such website: http://www.poeticmind.co.uk/wellbeing/chakras-and-dantien/ ).

No such thing as a still mind...

will's picture

There's no such thing as a still mind, if you really want peace, give up this idea right now. The mind, by its very nature, cannot be still. It has to be in action, it has to be constantly doing, and when there's no action, there's no longer any mind.

It helps to view the mind as it really is, not a singular object, but a fuzzy cloud of thoughts that is constantly changing. No single thought is the mind, yet when they're gathered all together they create this illusion of a singular entity.

Believing that the mind needs to be still is actually giving more power to the mind. You become dependent upon the mind for stillness. It's not the mind that becomes still, it's YOU that becomes still, and through that you stop feeding into the mind.

You are not your mind, though the whole idea of a "your mind" is an illusion, but that's another story. It's easy to demonstrate that you are not the mind, who's the one observing the mind? If this observer exists regardless of what the mind is doing, which one is really you?

It's really a shifting of consciousness to your own consciousness, and then you're simply a witness of the thoughts. Don't get involved with them, simply witness them. It's like a parade marching down the street, exciting and seducing, but you are simply an observer.

This isn't to say never get involved, especially because that in itself would be another thought you're involved in, just don't get lost in your thoughts, don't forget yourself. Keep coming back to the observer, make that your center, and see that the thoughts exist on the periphery. Centered within your own being, you can't help but become still, as all the excitement of the mind fades into the background.

 

A request for donations & an explanation of what the GFP is about - Updated

will's picture

At the Galactic Free Press, we like to explore new and different ways of doing things. We give everything away for free, we don't try to sell anything, and we don't offer special services for only those who can afford them. We give freely, and we're largely supported by those who can give freely in return. We see this as part of the new paradigm.

Asking for donations is not our favorite thing to do, but we've learned that if we don't specifically ask, we don't get very much. Our landlord doesn't give us a house for free nor does the local supermarket give us free food just for being "spiritual" people. We have the same expenses as most people, as well as paying for a web site and a few other services related to that.

The Galactic Free Press is very much our job, though I don't mean that like it's a burden. We're happy to do it, it's our passion. We put around 5 hours or more of combined work each day into the site through writing articles, posting articles, reading articles, searching for new things to post, answering questions (through email, on our site, and on Facebook), providing technical support to our users, and all the work that comes from maintaining an independent website. Providing our website, as well as a network of support for people through other sites as well, is no small task. We do ask for help through donations or through active participation.

A Message To Those Who Read Channelings And The Channelers Themselves

will's picture

This is something that absolutely must be addressed directly if the community is going to move forward. While there's a ton of wonderful, loving, evolved messages that are brought to us through channeling, there's also a whole lot of information that's very questionable, to put it nicely. I've lost count of all the failed predictions and the carrot-on-a-stick type promises of amazing things in the near future. Then there's all the "behind the scenes" information that's impossible to confirm, it has to be accepted on faith alone. Then the really odd stuff... Archangels are giving me investment advice? Pardon the French, but that just makes me say, what the fuck? I can't help but laugh at how ridiculous some of this is. Channeled messages are supposed to be super-evolved higher-consciousness information, why are they like this? Well I've got a very simple explanation that brings sense to all of this: channelers are channeling themselves.

At first glance it may seem like I'm trying to discredit channeling, but that's not my intention, I want to breathe new life into it. I don't need to discredit channeling, there's plenty of channelers who do a great job of that without any help from me. When I say that channelers are channeling themselves, I'm not discrediting channeling, in fact I'm giving credit to the channeler. That wonder transcendent message of Divine Love? That was You! You brought that through! Isn't that wonderful?

Galactic Free Press -God Certification Course-

will's picture

We used to get asked fairly often what gave us the right to tell people they're God, that was when we lived in a spiritual community where many people had fancy spiritual titles. People wanted some verification, we were supposed to be certified by some recognized spiritual "authority", and despite our assurances that we were certifiable, that apparently wasn't enough. In there interest of not getting left too far behind with the latest spiritual fads, the Galactic Free Press is blessed to present:

 

God Certification Course

First the cost, since in a capitalist society we tend to judge things based upon how big a number is associated with them. How much would you pay to become a certified God? $100? $1,000? $10,000? What would be a fair price? Well it just so happens this course is valued at approximately $4 trillion USD, but if you act now you can get it for the low low price of simply paying attention. That's a 4 trillion dollar discount, what a deal!

Understanding the nature of illusion

will's picture

How can someone be free if they can't even see their own cage? Even worse, what if they believed the very thing that was keeping them caged would someday set them free?

And what is it we want freedom from? Wants, needs, and desires? Fear, pain, and suffering? Daily toil, drudgery, and boredom? Money problems, relationship problems? All our problems? Wouldn't that be nice to not have to worry about all those things?

Let us go to the core, what is the root of all these issues? Simple, every single problem we have is a thought in our minds. A physical situation may exist, but it is the mind's reaction that makes it into a problem. Our own thinking turns it into a problem and through this we become slaves to the thoughts in our minds.

A prisoner who knows nothing other than prison would simply think that's the way life is. A prisoner who has tasted freedom will suffer far more when locked away, even though the reality of the situation would be the same for both prisoners. It's simply a difference in perception.

Because the mind can create the illusion that we aren't free, the illusion that we are dependent upon the body, mind and ego, the mind may seem very powerful. It's not powerful at all, but to a person who can only see through the filter of their mind, it's the most powerful thing in the world. The Being Within is where the power comes from, but that power is unconsciously given away by feeding into illusions.

What Is Spirituality?

will's picture

What we need the most right now is a paradigm shift, we need new and original ways of looking at things. What's often sold to us as "new" in our society is really just repackaged forms of old ways of thinking, and this is especially true of spirituality. Now what is spirituality? There's a word that means a whole lot of things to a whole lot of different people. I've heard it defined recently as a personal relationship with God, and that is something very beautiful. I wish that was all the word meant.

There are thousands of people and groups promoting forms of spirituality that are really just the beginnings of new religions. In fact, the main difference is simply that they lack the popularity and influence of the mainstream religions. Some of these are relatively harmless, while others are run by psychotic  leaders who need others to follow them to fuel their ego's sense of importance. Especially within the "new age" circles, these groups will be all about love and oneness on the surface, but when you dig a little deeper, it's anything but love and oneness.

The old paradigm: "Here's a list of rules you need to follow to get to God."

The "new" spiritual paradigm: "Here's an updated list of rules you need to follow to get to God."

And many of these rules just follow the societal trends at the time, do this, don't do that, don't eat this, don't drink that. It's just an updated version of the old rules, it's another ten commandments. After thousands of years of this approach not working, people continue to try it! It's not a personal relationship to God, it's a personal relationship with a belief system that's supposed to get you to God. Yet nobody ever found God in a belief system, because God isn't in your mind, God is in your Soul. God Is Your Soul.

Bridging the physical realm and the Divine

will's picture

There are various realms we exist in simultaneously, whether we are aware of it or not. The most obvious is the physical, also known as the material realm or 3D. This is where there's the illusion of solid objects and space between them.

Then there's the Divine Realms, where the rules of the physical realm no longer apply. There is only Oneness, Divine Love, and Endless Joy beyond imagination. This is the home of your Higher Self, Tao, Source, however you choose to label God, though it's important to say that the Divine Realm exists beyond any mental concepts. The Divine is bigger than any ideas in your mind, though that's not saying the Divine is out of reach. In fact, it's even closer to You than your own mind.

Humans have this amazing ability to be bridges between the Divine and the physical. Miracle of miracles! If people really understood what this means, they'd be slack-jawed and dumbfounded for at least a week straight. The profundity of this is incredible, it brings magic back into your life, that child-like wonder most people have lost, and so much more. This is what human bodies are built for, living separate from the Divine is a deeply unnatural state of being. That's why there's so much suffering in the world, and reconnecting with the Divine is what brings physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health back into your life. It's how you're made to Live.

New-Agey Event Name Generator

Seems like every week I hear about a new portal/stargate/activation type of event from one channeler or another. I've started to notice some patterns in the names, so I decided to throw together an app that strings together the most popular new-agey buzzwords to save people the trouble of having to come up with their own names. Click the button below to give it a go!
