Yep thats my son in the top image fist pumping the world.... ll
no problem at all, andro.....there is no need for an apology, from my perspective.......all is well...;-]
i understand yours too. thanks
i do find it interesting you found this energy drekx :)
No worries, Andromedan.. Fair play to you for reaching out in this way, and no need to apologise.. it's all good. Thanks for being honest, brother.. I can see you're making a genuine effort with this post and I really appreaciate that.
Looks like positive change of wind is happening here on Ashtar Command since I last peeked in. This post brings hope for me to stay on board. Last time everyone was jumping ship. This post is very inspirational. Thanks for posting.
Thanks for the support Cyndi.
~I respect your Intent, Andromedan... & I agree, there's no need to apologize. We're all trying to navigate the ebb & flow of the Earth-School. The roles of Teacher & Student are constantly interchangeable... which is to say, interpersonal turbulence is a natural byproduct of Archontic energy that is being purged from the Gaian-Matrix. As the new paradigm emerges, defending & fighting for our 'beliefs' comes with the territory of uncovering & discovering deeper truths about our personal histories. Oftentimes, finding common ground in our 'stories' is challenging... but as the veils of duality continue to fade, what is being revealed is that our similarities far outweigh our illusory differences. ~TemetNosce247
"On this bridge," Lorca warns, "life is not a dream. Beware. And beware. And beware." And so many think because Then happened, Now isn't. But didn't I mention the ongoing "wow" is happening right now? We are all co-authors of this dancing exuberance where even our inabilities are having a roast. We are the authors of ourselves, co-authoring a gigantic Dostoevsky novel, starring clowns. This entire thing we're involved with called the world, is an opportunity to exhibit how exciting alienation can be. Life is a matter of a miracle that is collected over time by moments, flabbergasted to be in each other's presence. The world is an exam to see if we can rise into direct experience. Our eyesight is here as a test to see if we can see beyond it. Matter is here as a test for our curiosity. Doubt is here as an exam for our vitality. Thomas Mann wrote that he would rather participate in life than write 100 stories. Giacometti was once run down by a car, and he recalled falling into a lucid faint, a sudden exhilaration, as he realized that at last something was happening to him. An assumption develops that you cannot understand life and live life simultaneously. I do not agree entirely. Which is to say I do not exactly disagree. I would say that life understood is life lived. But the paradoxes bug me, and I can learn to love and make love to the paradoxes that bug me. And on really romantic evenings of self, I go salsa dancing with my confusion. Before you drift off, don't forget. Which is to say, remember. Because remembering is so much more a psychotic activity than forgetting. Lorca, in that same poem said that the iguana will bite those who do not dream. And as one realizes that one is a dream figure in another person's dream, that is self awareness."

~Was thinking about the video you posted, Andromedan… & the endless shadows war has cast across the human story. It’s a living nightmare, a psycho-spritual dis-ease that by design, has wrecked havoc on our natural state of being, relegating Humanity to pick up the pieces (on & off the ‘battlefield’) of an ancient bloodletting ritual, specifically intended to fuel the very forces we’re actually trying to tame in our ‘reality’. Archontic forces that use us like toilet paper… as completely disposable pawns, who’s singleness of purpose is to serve their wicked agenda. No more! We are being called to find the strength to free ourselves from the mental bondage of the Time-loop, once & for ALL. Let me add this, I have deep respect for soldiers who have been duped by the endless mirages of the war machine. For the millions who have lost their lives, including those who were drafted to ‘serve’ their country, only to have their lives ripped apart by a shitstem that could give two fu#ks about them. I’ve had the privilege to work one to one with some incredible veterans… my father in law is a Vietnam vet who still suffers from PTSD, being forced to kill when he was only 18. My girlfriends grandfather was a World War 2 vet, who drank himself to death, unable to process the horrors he partook in. I have members of my extended family who joined the military due to a lack of significant work. I could go on… but despite my empathy for the ongoing insanity of the war machine, & it’s countless victims (which ultimately include all of us), I don’t have reverence for everything ‘soldier’. For every victim of the military-industrial complex, there are countless, bloodthirsty half baked morons who joined the it's ranks for all the wrong reasons. As a means to act out the darkest corridors of their wounded psyches. I don’t subscribe to the carefully downloaded Archontic backbeat that is intended to fuel the sheeples blind allegiance to everything military. It’s a lie! A new paradigm is emerging. We stand at a crossroads that will not be defined by more senseless killing & flag waving… but by our willingness to reconnect & remember who, & what, we really are. Spiritual beings having a human experience, ready to reclaim our true birthright: Unity-Consciousness. ~TemetNosce247

As if living in a never-ending “war-time,” the war drums are once again fast approaching on the horizon… our government’s reliance on military solutions is pathological, a form of mental illness. It certainly seems as if our country doesn’t know how to imagine solutions outside the paradigm of war. The fact that we, as a species, are investing our creative genius to conjure up an endless war which is unceasingly draining us of our most precious resources is complete and utter madness. We are truly in the midst of a global collective psychosis of epic proportions, what the Native Americans call “wetiko psychosis.” Duped by the Beasts of War by Paul Levy
War is really an epidemic of madness. Throughout human history, war is the most violent and destructive activity in which we human beings have been engaged. It is an irrational phenomenon that can’t be stopped or controlled with rational arguments, for its source is the shared unconscious of humanity. Author Barbara Ehrenreich, in her book Blood Rites: Origins and History of the Passions of War, writes, “However and wherever war begins, it persists, it spreads, it propagates itself through time and across space with the terrifying tenacity of a beast attached to the neck of living prey. This is not an idly chosen figure of speech. War spreads and perpetuates itself through a dynamic that often seems independent of human will. It has, and we like to say of things we do not fully understand, ‘a life of its own.’” … When I first read Ehrenreich’s words, I immediately thought of “wetiko”… – a psychospiritual disease of the soul – similarly develops an apparently autonomous and independent life and will of its own. The more I studied Ehrenreich’s work, the more I realized that the beast of war is a virulent incarnation of the wetiko bug writ large on the world stage.
An out-of-control robotic golem, the war machine develops a seeming autonomy that (just like the wetiko virus) generates its own self-sustaining momentum; war is simultaneously its own cause and effect. Seen as a cultural trait, war has evolved in the way that it has simply because it is advantageous to and profits from itself. In a self-perpetuating vicious and violent cycle of infinite regress that is a self-fulfilling feedback loop, the only defense against war is war itself. Thus war metastasizes and spreads, steamrolling all peaceful solutions under its relentless, circular and self-justifying logic… War is a living flesh and blood example of how human societies can fall prey to systems of behavior that are entirely of their own creation that can sweep up and devour all who are involved. This is reminiscent of the legendary resurrected tiger which devours the magician who restored it to life out of its skeletal bones. In war we have fallen prey to the power of our own misguided magic.
…If war escapes the reach of our imagination, it will dictate, enforce and establish dominion over all of us. First and foremost an act of imagination, war enlists our own imagination to become an agent of negation and destruction. In modern times, the majority of people apparently find the most decisive and captivating manifestations of power to be in that which destroys, rather than that which creates; this is an expression of collective subconscious and un-integrated trauma. The imagination of a people as a whole must be conscripted and reshaped in order to prepare a reluctant citizenry for war. War, and the weapons of collective death that are its accessories, are the products of the greatest creative power operating within the human spirit – the human imagination; and human imagination, it must be added, is capable of getting rid of them. Since our species has invented war, we can also invent and manifest peace. If we can’t imagine this, then what are we thinking? An impaired imagination, unable to even imagine peace, is simultaneously a cause and effect of the proliferation of war. While on one level the war we are involved in uses such things as bombs, the real war is a war on consciousness, which is nothing other than a war on the imagination itself. A debilitated imagination fundamentally weakens humanity, making it easier prey to be manipulated by a predatory elite…
Only something truly alive has the capacity to destroy itself. It is clear we are in the process of destroying ourselves as a species (see Fukashima and the subsequent rush to build more nuclear reactors for another example). As if performing a species-wide eco-suicide ritual en masse, we are taking part, whether we know it or not, in a cosmic anti-sacred ceremony that will leave no one around to experience the end result. Our scientific, technological wizardry has surpassed our wildest dreams. The question is: will our emotional, spiritual and moral qualities continue to lag far behind, and thus doom us to a morbid future of our own making?...
War is a prosperity-reducing depopulation ritual, a parasite on human life and culture, draining us of as many things as can be imagined – including life itself. Like a parasite, war kills a significant proportion of the host population, and then, in the resulting gaps between wars, immunity from the parasite seems to be conferred; unfortunately, the gaps between wars have disappeared. We now find ourselves in an endless war, a life and death struggle with a seemingly malevolent entity – wetiko being one of its many names – which we ourselves have conjured up. Ultimately speaking, we are fighting with a dark part of ourselves that we have apparently lost our ability to be in conscious relationship with…
The specter of war breaking out in the greater body politic haunts the collective unconscious of all of humanity. In modern times, the psychopathic global war on terror is everywhere and affects everyone; it is universally traumatizing and is damaging to the soul of humanity… The atrocities that our government is involved in – and we, by proxy, are complicit in – are so horrible that they have to be internally denied. This creates a cognitive dissonance within our minds such that our ability to creatively and responsibly respond is disabled. Many of us simply resist the truth of what’s happening in our world; our looking away reinforces our “need to not know,” which then further feeds our dissociation in a diabolical feedback loop of our own making. Complicit in our own self-hypnosis, our moral eyes become blinded in the process. Interestingly, the self-created entity of wetiko is a form of blindness that not only believes itself to be sighted, but arrogantly imagines itself to be more sighted than anyone else. We are a species who has fallen asleep but imagines we are awake…
The fact that throughout our lifetime there has not been a moment free of one group waging war on another makes war seem normalized, as if it is just the way things are, part of being human. This thought-form is a lie, inspired and fed by the very same energy that animates war itself. If we buy into our feelings of helplessness and believe that we can’t do anything about war, we are then its unwitting accomplices. In actuality we are magicians, powerful beyond measure, having unconsciously misused our own power to bewitch ourselves, having fallen under a curse of our own making. Our task is to break out of our self-induced spell. Holding this possibility in mind, Jung wonders whether “humanity…may yet evolve a different ideal. In time even conquest will cease to be the dream.” What will happen, I find myself imagining, as more and more of us, not just ordinary citizens – but actual soldiers in our illegal wars of aggression, as well as the military commanders, generals, senators, presidents and prime ministers, heads of corporations – wake up to how we have been hoodwinked, bamboozled – duped – by the creative genius of our own minds into seeing war as a legitimate means of operating in the world? Ah, what then?
